- Choose from 1.5L or 2L jug

OmniBlend I has a variable speed dial and pulse button and is a manually operated version, with ON/OFF switch, PULSE switch and variable control dial for complete manual operation. The essential operating instructions are totally under your control.
Manual speed controls:
LOW: At your own discretion you could select the LOW SPEED control for chopping ingredients, such as making coleslaw or sauces with chunky pieces in it and if you do not want to blend your ingredients into a fine textured substance. (This high performance blender makes great smoothies, purees, sauces, soups, etc., but is not a good food processor - which typically works with smaller volumes.)
MEDIUM: Select MED speed for finer chopping on a faster speed. Note that when selecting the MEDIUM button, the speed of the blender will start on LOW and then transition to MEDIUM SPEED after a few seconds.
HIGH: Select HIGH speed for blending fine textured smoothies, purees, pates, sauces, etc. You will notice, when selecting HIGH the motor will start on LOW, then transition to MEDIUM in about 2 seconds, and again transition to HIGH about 2 seconds later. This helps prevent the bursting or exploding of ingredients inside your blender container upwards towards the lid. This feature also helps prevent splashing.
The 3HP OmniBlend, when running on full speed, has been measured at 83.8 dB which is much quieter than with competitor’s. It is far greener in terms of energy consumption, as the OmniBlend is produced with energy-efficient equipment using the latest motor and programming technology to achieve best efficiency. This means increased longevity for the motor, less wear-and-tear, better cooling and quieter operation. The 2,238 Watts Motor is one of the most reliable motors in the industry. The motor is protected against power surges and overheating with its overload reset button.
OmniBlend’s durable jugs are made from leakage-free, food grade polycarbonate or Eastman Tritan® BPA-free co-polyester. Both are approved by the European Commission for Food Safety, the FDA, and Underwriters Laboratory (UL). They have been tested as safe at 130 degrees Celsius making them suitable for the hottest soups.
Built to withstand high RPM, the container is chemical resistant and virtually unbreakable. The transparent jug has raised calibrations for measuring in ounces, cups or litres.
The tamper is the only tool recommended to facilitate mixing of stuck ingredients. Using anything else could damage you, the blade, the container, the drive socket, the motor, etc or any/all of the above and will void your warranty. The tamper tool is carefully designed not to reach the blades when used through the hole in the lid (after removing the bung).
1.5L or 2L?
Both 1.5 and 2 litre jugs fit interchangeably on all OmniBlend bases.
The 1.5 litre jug has a wider base and is a little easier to clean and is also shorter so when mounted on the machine fits in more confined spaces – under some overhead cabinets for example. You can blend grain, corn, flax, beans, etc .into flour, or nuts, fruits, vegetables, ice cream, soup, sauces, and butters.
Dimensions: H-41cm (49cm with Tamper)W- 19cm D-20cm 4.9kg
The 2 litre jug is recommended for blending thicker ingredients because its narrower neck feeds ingredients to the blades more efficiently. It also works better for dry blending. Of course it has a greater capacity so you can make more at any one time. The lid and the tamper on the 2 litre jug are heavier duty and more substantial than on the 1.5 litre. The 2L is best for: Smoothies, Soups, Nut Butters, Nut Milks, Ice-Cream, Grinding Grain Into Flour, Grinding Coffee Beans and more.
Dimensions: H-51cm (59cm with Tamper) W- 19cm D- 20cm Weight -5.1 kg.
OmniBlender blades are made from custom-alloy stainless steel in a long blade set style. The assembly consists of the blades (6 knives), and the shaft onto which the blades are bolted.
DO NOT force the tamper down against the rubber lid with so much force that could cave in.
DO NOT leave the tamper in the hole in the lid while the machine is in operation. This blocks the natural "vortex" that forms and may put excessive strain on the motor. Your blended item will not be as smooth either.
DO NOT use harsh, caustic or abrasive cleaners or chlorine. Any of these could cause a metal-material clash and/or discolouration of the blades. Over time the inside surface of the container may become scratched (eg if you blend ice frequently) and such scratches are more prone to picking up stain from carrots and beetroot for example. If this occurs then soak the container overnight in warm water with a dash of vinegar, then scrub with a brush.
DO NOT put the jug/container in the dishwasher.
DO NOT immerse the jug/container in water
DO NOT put any part of the OmniBlender near any heat source.
ALWAYS put soft material into the jug/container first. Ensure the blades are covered with liquid.

Great value if you can afford Vitamix
11 Feb, 2014, By Kerry
I really wanted a powerful high speed blender so I could make almond milk and smoothies and I think the Omniblend is a great choice if you can afford a Vitamix. It turns things into liquid in seconds, and I use it to make almond milk, soups and pesto as well. I did a lot of research before I bought this blender and in terms of value for money, and quality it really came out high. Haven been disappointed!
