If you have just setup a new mac from scratch there is no reason to purchase it. MacOS does a pretty good job doing system management. Caches will be fresh.

For systems that are experiencing problems TechTool Pro is one of the utilities that is most recommended. A safe boot will remove caches. Etrecheck is a good tool for advanced users.

I wouldn't worry about it until you experience an issue. Most likely that will never happen.

Onyx is good app to have. But don’t get hung up on running cleaning etc. - occasionally it can help. Instead, welcome to becoming a Mac convert, and enjoy using your Mac!
