What to Look for in a Juicer?

omega vert 400hdsBefore we get into the model specifics and figuring out the best Omega juicer, let’s take a closer look and the functions and features an awesome juicer has. The most common mistake people make when buying a juicer is think that a high speed motor is the better option, that is false. The high speed motor juicers are very quick but they cause oxidation and make the juice separate more easily. They also leave out many of the healthy enzymes in the fruit and vegetables you are trying to juice, the heat that motor gives off also affects the flavor of the juice. The best option when purchasing a juicer is finding one with a low speed motor.

Along with a low speed motor, you also want to find one that has a strong auger and that has multiple functions. The multiple functions bit is actually more about personal preference, like most aspects of juicer buying. It’s up to you which juicer would best fit your needs and also the amount of kitchen space your juicer would take up. If you plan on using your juicer every day, you’ll want small enough to fit on your counter or light enough to move to where you plan on juicing.

The majority of Omega juicers that we reviewed are dishwasher safe but due to the small size and delicacy of most of the parts it is best to wash them by hand. It doesn’t take that much more time and it will be better for your juicer and piece of mind.

Since they’re are so many different types, bands, models and information we condensed it down to five different options. In this Omega juicer review we will go over everything you need to know about the five juicers below.


Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Masticating Dual-Stage Juice Extractor

image of omega j8006 juicerThe J8006 tops our list as one of the most popular, functional, and best Omega juicer models on the market. This product is so easy to use and it makes great juice making it a real pleasure to review. It automatically ejects the pulp which is so useful, it’s always an annoyance when you have to stop in the middle of juicing to clean out the pulp that has accumulated. It also comes with the juice screen inside, so need to fuss or worry about trying to get it to fit during set-up. Those features do not surprise me since this product was obviously made to help make your life easier, it has multiple features that put it far above other juicers and more than just a regular juicer.

The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center masticating Dual-stage Juicer Juice Extractor can be used to make sorbet, natural nut butters, nut based milk, coconut flakes, baby food and is able to grind coffee and spices. By using it’s blank plate and nozzle you can make delicious all natural peanut/almond/cashew/whatever nut you want to use butter! It won’t be as creamy as the kind you can buy in the store but that’s because it’s lacking the added fat and oil, making it much healthier for you. Of course, if you do want it more creamy you can add oil to it, but I don’t think it needs it. You can even turn that amazing nut butter into homemade nut milk for a healthier, vegan friendly alternative to cow’s milk. If you want another vegan friendly treat that’s frozen and sweet, you can also use the blank plate and nozzle to sorbet. It’s important you make sure you freeze your fruits before making your sorbet, they need to be firm out it turns more like a mushy juice. If you want to add something you can sprinkle over that treat, you can use the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center masticating Dual-stage Juicer Juice Extractor to make coconut flakes. It’s a simple as peeling the coconut, de-meating it and running through with the blank plate, it leaves you with great coconut flakes for baking, cooking, or just to sprinkle over your well-deserved sweet treat.

image of j8006 spoutThe juice that comes out of this is great tasting and with little pulp or foam. The juice stays good and does not separate for 72 hours, that is due to the low-speed motor the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center masticating Dual-stage Juicer Juice Extractor posses that keeps this juicer quite and the motor cool. Using a high speed motor would make the juice separate quicker and cause oxidation. You do not want that, when you juice you want the most nutrients extracted so that you can enjoy great tasting, healthy juice to improve your health.

The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center masticating Dual-stage Juicer Juice Extractor makes sure that you get a huge amount of the nutrients your body needs to stay active and on the go. This juicer’s horizontal and relatively light-weight design means that you can take it with you wherever you go. It’s perfect for serving up made-to-order drinks for your guests and quite enough to make your morning juice while watching television in your living room.

The feed chute is small which requires you to have to chop the produce before adding it in, but the small amount of time spent on that is worth it for the amazing quality of juice you receive. Another reason that makes cutting the produce imperative is the juice screen can crack or break if a piece gets lodge underneath it. It is crucial that you rinse and clean all the parts once you finish using this juicer or it will become very difficult to clean. The Omega j8006 is also worth noting that it’s a bit of work to clean after making sorbet or nut butters, but the great quality and health benefits you’ll receive are worth that little more work.

Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer

image of omega j8004The Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer is almost exactly like the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center masticating Dual-stage Juicer Juice Extractor, the difference between them only come down to color and pricing. Since we had so much to say in our Omega juicer reviews for both products, I decided to carry it on to this one. As I previously mentioned, the Nutrition Center of these Omega juicers do so much more than juicing. I know, it’s shocking that there’s still features and information I haven’t mentioned but there is.

Another useful feature of the Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer is that it can make salsa. This Omega juicer ability to mince and grind spices, along with the multiple uses that were mentioned in the last section, takes this from an ordinary juicer to a must-have kitchen tool. The low speed motor and super strong auger makes sure that you get the maximum amount of juice extracted and that the left over pulp is as dry it can be.

We did notice during our review that this efficient juicer does require you to take some time to make sure it stays clean. The parts have to be washed by hand, especially the silicone rings. The little bit of extra time to properly care for your juicer is worth the beyond excellent quality of juice, nut butter, salsa and sorbet you’ll get in return.

Dimensions: 14.5” x 6.5” x 15.5”
Weight: 15 pounds
Warranty: 15 years

Pros

  • The juice keeps for 72 hours
  • It’s quiet
  • It’s easy to use
  • It produces dry pulp for easy clean up
  • It makes salsa, sorbet, nut butter, nut milk and so much more

Cons

  • It can be difficult to clean
  • You have to cut up your fruits and vegetables before juicing

Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer

image of omega vrt350The vertical design of this Omega juicer takes up less counter space compared to the two Omega juicer reviews that we did above, which is a big plus when weighing out the pros and cons of the best Omega juicer. The Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer efficient low speed motor keeps your juice nutrient-rich so that you receive maximum health benefits from your juicing.

This juicer may leave a lot of pulp in your juice, to some people that’s a negative, to others that’s another reason to buy it. It’s all about personal preference, if you prefer less pulp you can pour your juice through a fine mesh strainer, it takes almost no time at all. The pulp that does come out of the Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer is very dry, making that part of clean up easy. Like with all the Omega juicer reviews we have on this page, cleaning should be done by hand and takes a little bit of time, less than five minutes but it’s worth it for your juice.

The Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer works best for fruit juices as opposed to vegetable juices. When juicing vegetables this Omega juicer leaves a bit of foam on top of the glass, but this is another factor that can be seen as a positive or negative depending on your personal taste. If you prefer less foam, you can easily skim the foam off with a spoon or I suggest switching between fruit and vegetable as you juice. Switching between fruit and vegetable will also help keep the screen from clogging, which it is prone to do especially with high fiber produce such as pineapple and celery.

image of vrt350 piecesIf your screen does unfortunately get clogged the Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer has an incredibly useful reverse feature to dislodge whatever might be clogging your screen. Once you get rid of what was causing the blockage, I suggest removing the screen and rinsing it to get rid of any fine pieces of pulp to prevent another clog happening to you, wrecking your juicing flow. This happened to use during our review, but it was quick fix and minor inconvenience. Another way to help prevent your juicer clogging is by cutting your fruit and vegetables small and not going too fast for your juicer.

The Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer is perfect for entertaining guest. It has a large spout to capture juice in a bigger container and it is the quietest Omega juicer in our reviews, you can easily talk to your guests over how much happier you are since purchasing this product over the sound of your juicer.

Warranty: 10 years

  • It makes nutrient dense juice

Conclusion

Deciding what model on the best Omega juicer roundup to spend your money is a difficult task, I hope that some of the information we have given you in our review has helped in some way. Key questions to ask yourself now are:

Do you need something for only juicing green juice?

There are some people that are very cut and dry on what they need from a juicer, if you are someone who only needs something that can juice kale, spinach, carrots and other simple staple vegetables, then your time choosing a juicer will be much easier. You’ll want to make sure whatever juicer it is that you are buying is one that doesn’t get clogged too easily and produces the right amount of pulp and foam for your liking.

Do you need something that juices both fruits and vegetables?

If you are simple and a sucker for a classic juicer function then you’ll want something that doesn’t get clogged right away, something with a low enough motor to keep our juice from separating but high enough motor to able to juice multiple apples and stalks of celery one after another. This simple juicing need will cut your time spent searching down. While a juicer for only vegetables seems like the option that would take the least amount of time, finding a juicer for both fruits and vegetables will be easier. Switching between fruits and vegetables will cut down on foam and will make it less likely for your screen to clog. Of course, there is many other things that your juicer can do if you buy the right kind.

Do you need something that does more than just juice?

Picking an Omega juicer with a Nutrition Center will provide you with more features and options than other juicers on the market and help you feel confident that you have chosen the best Omega juicer It will give you the ability to make sorbets, salsa, nut-based milk, baby food, and nut-based butter easily for a healthier lifestyle. The advantage of these features would be that it would be easier to switch to or keep up with a vegan diet which has proven to help your health in many different areas.

Clearly, no one can tell what is the absolute best, no questions asked juicer. That is a decision for you and your household, this Omega juicer review was meant to guide and help you understand the somewhat confusing world of juicer buying. I hope you have at least some idea of what juicer you want and what features will best fit your lifestyle.
