I have been asken by a few people to review the Omniblend, so I decided, why not. I would recommend it, I use one, why not review it.. I sure have gotten enough use out of my Omniblend to be able to speak up. I’m sure there is some of you reading this right now saying that the Vitamix is better. I can’t say that it is or not, for the simple reason that I’ve never used a Vitamix blender before. But from all the You Tube videos I have watched, my Omniblend can do just as much in exactly the same manner as the vitamix. And, this is the best part.. at less than half the price!! Believe it, ‘coz it’s true.
Here’s my thoughts:
Foremost, it’s a pro-level smoothie blender that makes amazing smoothies!! And I Love It!!
What Is The OmniBlend 3 HP Blender?
The OmniBlend 3 HP blender boasts a powerful 3 horsepower motor. Wow, it’s more than the Vitamix’s 2 horsepower. It takes me seconds to blend my favourite smoothies. For those of you who know me, also know that I love using frozen fruit, bananas and berries especially in my smoothies. I also have to mention that berries, greens, yes even celery (it can make that aweful wiry strands if not blended properly) to a pulp, and very very smooth. Banana Ice cream is an absolute must!
The OmniBlend has a six-blade assembly. (Two additional, downward-angled blades are located beneath the four
blades pictured.) It is -
The blender meant to last
The 1.5 liter polycarbonate jug is nearly unbreakable and will be the only jar you need for the life of the blender. The stainless steel blades are meant to last, too. Add in the powerful motor and an Omniblend will be the only blender you will ever need.
It also comes with a large, 2litre (64-ounce) square pitcher. I prefer a square pitcher design because it’s easier to clean, remove ingredients and, in my opinion, blends much better. The pitcher and blades are appropriate for both wet and dry ingredients.
A nice and very handy accessory that comes with the OmniBlend is a tamper tool. A tamper is a great to have, especially when making green smoothies because greens love to get stuck above the blades. When you’re blending greens or veggies, insteadof spending that time chopping a tamper gives you an easy shortcut by allowing you to push them down while your smoothie is blending. Does the Omniblend really need a tamper tool? You can get away without one but it’s nice to have.
The blender has a simple dail/switch interface panel that allows you to select adust the speed as well as a “pulse” button.
The Omniblend has a wide, steady base. The blender (with pitcher) stands about 50cm tall and 16cm wide.
There is convenient cord storage beneath the blender base.
The blender comes with a 3year warranty, but an additional 7year warranty can be purchased.
The Omniblend 3 HP blender retails at R2 999.00, which includes free shipping inside of South Africa. That’s buying a top quality blender at the fraction of the cost.
Another super power of the Omniblend has it that the blender offer double protection with their overload reset button and thermal shut off switch on the motor. Both of these will protect your blender from burning out or being caught in an electricity surge. I think that I can safely say that everyone in SA will agree with me on that one.
My Experience Using The OmniBlend V 3 HP Blender
When it comes to green smoothies/fruit smoothies, crushing ice, chopping veggies into mush for puree or juice the Omniblend does a fantastic job. It out performs any department store blender. It quickly and easily handles large chunks of fruit, whole leaves of kale and liquifies hard things like carrots,pineapple and beets perfectly. There’s no “sipping and chewing” your smoothie like you do when using cheaper blenders.
The texture of each green smoothie I have blended was creamy and smooth. I don’t own a juicer, although I would love but with the help of my blender and Nut Milk Bag, I can drink smooth, pulp free juices. To read the review that I did about the Nut Milk Bag, click here.
I didn’t get any chunks of fruit that didn’t blend/large bits of leaves in our smoothies either. This blender breaks open cell walls and releases nutrients so that your body is better able to absorb them. I’m honestly very very happy the smoothie quality I’m getting.
Smoothie making is easy and frustration-free with this blender!
I found that the best way for making a green smoothie, any smoothie really was to turn the dail on “High”, count to 30, turn it off, then turn the dail to “High” again and turn off.
My experience is to start slow and go faster while counting. I make about 2/3 2litre smoothies per day and this way it’s allmost as if I am easing the blender into blending and mushing everything together. Using the tamper tool to push the
greens or iced fruit down about 10 seconds into your 30second count would do the trick nicely if you use a ton of greens/fruit like I do. You could also “Pulse” it a couple times, then blend on high 35secs.
While you can purchase an optional sound enclosure, the Omnishield, the Omniblend isn’t that loud. Most commercial blenders can wake up a household of kids or keep the chef’s orders from being heard in a crowded kitchen. Omniblend blenders are super quiet-just 85 dB loud – for a powerful machine. In fact, Omniblend blenders are 20 percent quieter than the competition, which will aid in keeping the children asleep while mom and dad enjoy a healthy smoothie for breakfast.
