Optimum Nutri Force Extractor Review


As a mum of now two kids under three, I’m a huge fan of anything that makes life easier so I was excited to receive the Optimum Nutri Force Extractor from Froothie to review.

Although I have a Thermomix and Thermocook, the Nutriforce Extractor is just so much easier to use especially when I’m half asleep in the morning and all I want is to make a quick smoothie or juice.

You literally just put the ingredients into the blending cup, screw on the blade then press the low/high button which goes for 50 seconds. If you need it to blend a bit more you just press it again. Or for bulkier ingredients, there’s also the pulse button.

If I’m organised enough, before bed I roughly cut up all my fruit, put it into my 1L cup and into the fridge ready to press the button in the morning. Watermelon juice is a favourite in our house and 1L is enough to share between junior burger, burger boy and I…

On Wednesdays we have playgroup at 9 am and getting out of the house on time is always a mission, so sometimes breakfast for me is put on the backburner. Yesterday, I made use of the travel lid and made a blueberry smoothie to have on the go…

I have also been making junior burger her favourite tuna, carrot cream cheese pinwheels recipe filling in the 450ml grinding cup…

Would I recommend the Optimum Nutri Force Extractor?

YES, if you’re after a small multifunction vortex blender without the price tag and all the fancier cooking functions.

NO, if you are looking for a blender with a large capacity as the 1L cup is really only enough for two, three if the third person is a small child.

What I liked about the Optimum Nutri Force Extractor

• Easy to clean, just add water & detergent then blend or sometimes I just put it in my dishwasher
• Easy to use – just a touch of the button
• Love the travel handle and lids
• Looks great in the kitchen and takes up minimal bench space
• Love that it can blend even the hardest ingredients to make smoothies, juices, dips and sandwich fillings! As well as crush ice, grind nuts and knead dough!

What I didn’t like about the Optimum Nutri Force Extractor

• The small cup capacity – when I have my mum over I have to refill the cup twice which is a bit of double handling
• You have to cut up your fruit into smaller chunks than you would for say a Thermomix or ThermoCook
