The Optimum 9200 certainly has a lot to live up to as the new competitor to the Vitamix and Blendtec blenders. If you compare the Vitamix 5200 and the Optimum 9200 specifications and technical information its really hard to justify not getting the Optimum 9200. It has a stronger motor (3hp as opposed to 2hp), its speed is 14000 rpm quicker, its 20dB quieter and has one jug that is good for wet and dry ingredients. Oh we forgot to mention that at the time of this review its only $431!
We are awaiting our new Optimum 9200 so we can further test it and review the real life performance of this impressive looking blender. Stay posted for updates over the coming weeks.
