“The Optimum VAC2 Air Vacuum Power blender from Froothie is not 'just another high powered blender' it's a heavy duty blender that has the option to be used with or without vacuum. Just look at this gorgeous machine; I say it definitely looks the part, but not only that it makes life so much easier in the kitchen. Read the full review.... Click Here.

“ I was amazed at the difference. While the juice from the regular blender went a rusty brown colour and started to separate within minutes after blending, the juice blended in the Vac 2 Vacuum blender remained yellow and smooth in appearance (with just a thin layer of rusty bubbles on top where the juice is exposed to the air). 48 hours later and the juice still looked the same.
If you’re really into juices/smoothies and are keen to preserve the nutrients, or want to make them ahead of time and not only preserve their nutrients but also their colour and smooth texture (avoiding layer separation), then a vacuum blender would be perfect for you.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF THE OPTIMUM VAC 2 AIR VACUUM BLENDER*
The base of this blender looks like a launch pad; like you’ll be sending your smoothies into outer space! (I suppose, with its vacuum technology, it is a bit like sending your smoothie into outer space, but that’s beside the point…) It’s certainly very fancy looking.
THE BEST BITS
- It makes for more aesthetically pleasing smoothies and milkshakes. My dairy free banana and walnut milkshake, for example, kept its creamy colour for longer!
- One jug does everything – smoothies, nut butters, soups… the lot! No need to change the jug. (Unlike my Optimum G2.3!)
- By blending in a vacuum environment, nutrients are preserved and freshness retained until you open the lid, so it’s great for making things in advance.
