As well as juicing fruits and vegetables, this juicer will also easily produce nut butters, soy milk and tofu, making it a true multi-function kitchen aid, to assist you to enjoy the health benefits of natural produce, nuts and soy.  The Super Angel is also known to retain much higher levels of enzymes and nutrients in the juice, as well as extracting a very high juice volume from produce you input.  The pulp produced by this juicing machine is the driest you are likely to experience as every remaining drop of juice is extracted.

The Super Angel DELUXE excels at juicing leafy greens, particularly wheat-grass  barley grass, herbs and sprouts.  Its heavy duty construction, combined with its twin geared impeller system and low RPM motor, ensures reliable and premium performance while keeping enzymes intact. This is an outstanding juicer and customers who use it are impressed with its high level performance, quality construction, as well as its juice quality.

Features of the Super Angel DELUXE

Motor

  • Low 86 RPMs:
    The low rotation speed is ideal for creating a high quality, nutritious juice.  However, because it rotates slowly does not mean that it gets the job done slowly.  The Juicer’s method of juicing does not need high speed.
  • The motor is 180 Watt with 1/4 HP .
  • 3 HP Grinding Force:
    3 horsepower of grinding force allows the juicer to break down tough plant cell walls and release the nutrients locked inside. It is possible to juice strong fibrous, stringy fruits and vegetables to produce darker, richer colored  juices with a  sweeter,  more full-bodied flavor.
Super Angel 5500 - Twin Gear

Twin Gears

Performance

  • 2-Stage Twin Gear System:
    For efficient juice extraction, stage one applies concentrated pressure to the fruit or vegetable. Stage two grinds and continuously masticates the fruit or vegetable creating very dry pulp and as a result – more juice.
  • 3-Stage Screen System:
    The new 3-stage screen system filters and maximizes juice yield, resulting in 3 times the amount of juice extracted compared to other juicers.
  • Simplicity:
    You do not need to stop a juicing session to change screens for different types of food.  A single three-stage screen handles fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens. There is no need for other screens, or any other juicer for that matter.
  • Wide Range of Juicing Capabilities:
    The Super Angel Deluxe Juicer will extract juice from almost anything from carrots and apples to wheat grass and sprouts.
  • Versatility:
    You can make soy milk, tofu, meat pate, frozen fruit sorbet, and nut butters.

Materials

  • All Stainless Steel Construction – There is no plastic, nylon, lexan, or other poly-carbonate materials which can come into contact with your food.  The juicer is strong, durable and has a hygienic stainless steel housing, higher strength stainless steel twin gears and precision stainless steel screens.

Type

  • This juicer is a twin gear, masticating juicer.  Instead of having just the one auger, the Super Angel has two, which provides twice the ability to extract the juice.

Feed Type

  • The Super Angel has a circular feed tube, however it is quite small and measures 1.7  inches in diameter.  This means that fruits and vegetables need to be cut up into small pieces before being fed into the juicer.  The nature of a masticating juicer is one of literally grinding out the juice and this process is facilitated by small pieces of fruit and vegetable matter.  Hence the narrow feed tube.

Noise

  • Super Quiet Operation:
    The higher wattage motor with unique cooling system results in less strain on the motor, less heat build-up, and increased durability.

Pulp

  • No Pulp Adjustment Necessary:
    The powerful heavy duty motor always brings maximum squeezing force and produces the highest quantity of juice.
  • Continuous Juicing with Automatic Pulp Ejection:
    The impeller press twin gear system enables continuous juicing without the need to stop to remove pulp.  The dry pulp simply comes out the end of the juicer after all of the juice has been extracted.
  • Drier Pulp:
    The ultra-precision 2-stage twin gear system combined with the powerful heavy duty motor bring the maximum juice extraction possible.  You can see the difference in the extremely dry pulp when compared to other juicers.

Cleaning

  • As with other juicers, the easier it is to use and clean up, the more often you are likely to use it.  The Super Angel’s newly designed parts make clean-up, assembly and pull-down very easy.  The “push down” front clamp and simple three-step assembly make it very user friendly.
  • The two gears are easy to clean and the screens will take a little more work, with the cleaning brush.

Safety

  • Automatic Overheat Sensor:
    A thermal protection device and anti-jamming automatic reverse offer safe use and peace of mind.  The automatic motor thermostat prevents the motor from overheating.
  • 6 Safety Devices:
    Automatic Heat Sensor, Extra Rocker Switch, Internal Gear Protection, Reinforcement of Switch Panel, Double Protection of motor and Main Housing Unit, and Screen Housing.
  • Reverse Turning Safety Feature:
    Blockages from overload or jamming can easily be cleared with the reverse action switch.
  • Fan Cooled:
    The very quiet cooling fan prevents motor overheating.

Included Items

  • Juicer, gears, screens, plunger, cleaning brush and juice jug.  The juice jug is now made of glass rather than plastic.

Benefits

    • The Deluxe has had major parts including gear box, motor, cooling systems, safety sensors and control panels upgraded and reinforced
    • Saves time
    • Keeps nutrients and enzymes alive in the juice
    • Versatility – nut butters and soy milk and tofu can be made as well a a full range of juices
    • Juice is fresh and enzyme-rich
    • Much higher liquid yield and drier pulp
  • Quality Juice

More value is extracted from vegetables and  more pigments are also extracted, resulting in juice which is darker and richer in color when compared to that produced by other juicers.  The difference in quality is also apparent in taste, being richer and offering a more full-bodied flavor.

  • Vegetable Marrow Juice Extraction Provides a Major Health Benefit

Vegetable marrow nutrients play a significant role in the curing and regeneration of diseased cells in the body.  Vegetable marrow contains minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, complex carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, as well as other highly beneficial nutrients.  Fibers should be completely ground so that enzymes and nutrients are totally separated from the pulp.

This is the only juice extractor which can extract living calcium from plant stems, but also seed juice by way of marrow juice extraction.

  • Agricultural Chemicals From Fruits and Vegetables are Destroyed

Unless your fruits and vegetables are organic, they were grown in fields covered in pesticides and herbicides.  Although the pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables are considered to be at safe levels for human consumption, those extra chemicals don’t have to be on your food.

  • The extraction method of twin gear Juicers gets rid of about 80 to 90% of toxic agricultural chemicals and heavy metals from fruit and vegetable produce.  The principle is that  if leaves, stalks or roots are squashed using steel plates, only fiber waste remains.  The degree of agricultural chemicals and heavy metals is so high that they remain together with the fiber waste and then the separation process extracts pure juice with a high percentage of agricultural chemicals and heavy metals being eliminated by the rotating twin gears and screens of the juicer.

Omega VRT330HD Vertical Juice Machine Review

January 11, 20160 Comments
Omega VRT330HD

Omega Vertical Juicer

The Omega VRT330HD Heavy Duty Vertical Juicer is popular with customers because of its design and efficient performance. It is a masticating juicer which features a vertical design and also operates at a very low speed. Besides delivering a high juice yield, the Omega VRT330HD Juicer relies on its low speed to ensure that oxidation of the juice does not occur. This means that you can store the juice for a few days without compromising nutrition.

The Omega is easy to use as well as easy to clean which means that you will be more likely to use it on an ongoing basis. The vertical juicer is also proficient at juicing wheat-grass as well as other leafy greens. Part of its efficiency comes from having a two part juicing system where juice is extracted by pressing and grinding with the auger, and then filtered by a strong screen. Because it is a vertical juicer, it won’t take up too much room on your counter either.

Check Price and Availability Here

Features of the Omega VRT330HD

  • Design – Compact vertical, low speed, vertical masticating juicer which delivers a high juice yield. It has a hopper which is on the top of the juicer as a result of the vertical, compact design.
  • Motor – operates at a low speed and rotates at a slow 80 rpm. This ensures juice of the highest quality which retains all nutrients, natural color and is not prone to oxidation.
  • Auger – is heavy duty and designed to efficiently press and squeeze juice from your produce
  • Type – Masticating juicer
  • Dual Process – juice is processed in two stages which involve pressing and crushing with the auger before being squeezed through a screen. These processes result in a high juice yield.
  • Screens – a fine and a coarse screen can be used to filter pulp, depend on your preference for pulpy juice of pulp free juice.
  • Settings – 3 settings:  reverse, off and on.
  • Juice Yield – is high as a result of the efficiency of the vertical juicer. A sure sign of the high juice yield is the dryness or wetness of the pulp. In the case of the Omega VRT330HD, the pulp is very dry. This means you will reap maximum juice from minimum produce.
  • Juice Degradation – as a result of the slow motor speed, foam and froth are significantly limited. Subsequently, oxidation is also prevented. The end result is that you will be able to store juice for approximately 3 days should you wish to do so.
  • Pulp – is dry because of the efficiency of the juicer. Some people like to run the pulp through the machine a second time for an almost completely dry pulp and increased juice.
  • Cleaning – the Omega VRT330HD has an automatic cleaning system which involves wiping the screen clean as a means of increasing efficiency. If you pour water through the chute when you juice different fruits and vegetables, it will also help the juicer to clean itself.

 

 

Included Accessories:

  • 2 x spouts
  • 2 x 64 oz containers. You can catch the juice in one and the pulp in the other.
  • 2 x screens
  • 1 x pusher

Omega J8005 Nutrition Center Single-Gear Masticating Juicer Review

December 19, 20150 Comments

The Omega J8005 Nutrition Center Single-Gear Masticating Juicer is very popular with users who are Omega J8005 Masticating Juicercomfortable with using this style of juicer. It is actually much the same as the Omega J8003, but instead of being all white, features a silver and chrome finish. Technically and function wise it is the same.

Masticating juicers are powerful and this one is no exception, with a 1/3-horsepower single-phase induction motor and a low rotation speed of 80 RPMs. While this does ensure that there is no foaming and clogging, users who are accustomed to the speed of a centrifugal juicer, can often find the slow speed exasperating. The purpose of the low speed though, is to ensure that no heat build-up occurs during the juicing process and it is thought that heat reduces the effectiveness of the extracted enzymes.

The juicer thoroughly extracts vitamins, enzymes, and minerals from fruits and vegetables, including wheatgrass and leafy greens. It is also able to make butters from nuts, such as peanuts, almonds and cashews, as well as make natural baby food, grind coffee beans and flour, mince herbs and spices, and extrude homemade pasta including spaghetti and linguine with the included pasta nozzles

The machine also comes with an automatic pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing, and a built-in “reverse” mode to prevent food from getting stuck. It is made for heavy-duty juice extraction, is very sturdily built and runs reasonably quietly. Best of all, it is easy to disassemble and clean.

Check Price and Availability Here

Features of the Omega J8005 Masticating Juicer

  • It is a single-gear masticating juicer

  • The unit functions as juicer, food processor, pasta extruder, homogenizer, and grinder

  • It features a high juice yield

  • Comes with an auto pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing

  • Operates with a reverse mode

  • It is a dual-stage juicing system

  • The motor runs at a low speed of 80 rpms

  • There is no foaming, clogging, or heat build-up with the juicer

  • Commercial masticating juicer with 1/3-HP single-phase induction motor

  • It is very quiet to operate

 

Motor

The motor is a 1/3-horsepower single-phase induction motor which is powerful.  It has a low speed of 80 RPM’s which results in minimal heat build-up and oxidation, which  promotes healthy enzymes and longer lasting juice. It also means there will be no foaming, clogging, or heat build-up. The motor works equally well in reverse mode to assist with eliminating any clogging.

Performance

The performance of this juicer is solid and versatile. In addition to juicing fruits and vegetables, the multi-purpose Omega J8005machine can also be used, just as effectively, to make peanut butter or natural baby food, grind coffee beans and flour, mince herbs and spices, and extrude homemade pasta including spaghetti and linguine with the included pasta nozzles. It also has an auto pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing.

Materials

UL and cUL approved materials are used throughout and with the silver and chrome finish, is a little more functional than the white – which is prone to staining from carrots and beets.

Type

The Omega J8005 Nutrition Centre is a masticating juicer and comes with dual-stage juicing capabilities. Fruits and vegetables are initially ground in the auger before being filtered through a metal screen and the slow process ensures that there is no foam in the extracted juice. A masticating juicer is also excellent for juicing leafy greens and wheatgrass.

Feed Type

Produce is fed into the juicer via a feed chute which is narrator, at 1 ½ inches in diameter.  This means that fruits and vegetables must be chopped into small pieces to fit in there.

Output

Output is typically a high juice yield as mastication removes a higher amount of juice from fruit and vegetables, leaving a dry pulp. Some customers though, felt it didn’t yield as much juice as they were expecting.

Pulp

The pulp from this juicer is generally dry as it extracts more juice from the produce.

Cleaning

If possible, clean the juicer directly after use so that any fibre rinses off easily. Try and do it before you drink the juice. Components can be run under hot water, although the screen on the nose end of the juicer will likely need to be scrubbed with the brush provided. There is no fine mesh to clean.

Benefits

  • Healthy, nutritious drinks which can form part of a weight loss regimen.

  • Regular consumption of vitamins, enzymes and minerals

  • Develop healthy habits with children

Pros

  • The juicer is very quiet, much more so than centrifugal models.

  • The auger/masticator rotates slowly so that the juice doesn’t become heated and lose nutrients

  • This juicer squeezes produce cells instead of crushing them at high speed and this preserves more of the larger molecules such as amino acids, vitamins etc. making the juice more nutritious.

  • The juicer doesn’t produce fine-crushed pulp which requires a fine mesh filter so it’s easy to wash down and clean. This simply means that instead of using a juicer sporadically, you won’t mind using it several times each day.

  • The bulk of the vegetables and fruit are turned into juice and not soggy pulp, as can happen with centrifugal juicers

Cons

  • The feeder tube is too small and won’t take whole fruits and vegetables

  • Chopping everything up into small pieces is time consuming

  • Some users found the screen broke fairly quickly.

  • Some customers had difficulty changing over from a centrifugal juicer and adjusting to the overall slower process, from preparation through to the actual juicing.

User Ratings and Reviews

Being a popular model, the Omega J8005 Juicer has received excellent average ratings from customers. This indicates the overwhelming majority of users found the juicer to be to their liking and reinforces the general popularity of the juicer. A few people had trouble adjusting to the masticating type juicer after having used a centrifugal juicer and didn’t like the slower process. For the most part, users liked the versatility of the juicer and the variety of things besides juicing that it can do. They also liked the fact that the juicer doesn’t clog or foam. To read more about what users had to say about the juicer, you can read the reviews.

z-510 Manual Juicer

Z-510 Manual Juicer

The Z-Star Manual Juicer is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy all the benefits of juicing, but doesn’t want to be tied to the electricity grid or spend a small fortune on purchasing an electric juice extractor. This manual masticating juicer is ideal for taking with you and can be easily assembled and used in a variety of locations since it doesn’t require electricity.

It has a single auger which operates when you turn the handle and it delivers very high quality juice. This manual juicer has developed a solid reputation for juicing wheatgrass and leafy greens, but is versatile in that it can also juice both soft and hard fruits and vegetables.

Because electricity is not required, juicing is a very quiet experience. Its parts easily snap together and it is also very easy to use, although you should expect the manual process to take longer. If you have a very busy lifestyle and need things to happen very quickly, the slowness will likely be a problem. However, if you are looking for an electricity free, portable, quality juicing option, then the Z-Star juicer will suit you perfectly. Note also that it is significantly cheaper than electric juice extractors.

Champion G5-PG710 Commercial Heavy Duty Juicer Review

August 28, 20150 Comments
Champion Juicer

Champion Juicer

The Champion G5-PG710 Commercial Heavy Duty Juicer is a masticating juicer which can provide a variety of fruit juices, ice creams and sorbets as well as nut butters, sherbets, baby food and lots more. It is a juicer which has the power and durability to provide you with the health benefits of juicing for many years.  In fact some customers have reported their juicers are still faithfully working after 20 or more years of constant juicing.

The Champion G5-PG710 Juicer is made in the US and runs on 110 V/60 hertz, but is also available in 220 V/50 hertz for countries outside the US.  It also comes with a powerful motor and has a heavy duty front and rear ball bearing installation which allows it to run more smoothly at the maximum RPM’s. The motor has added winding capacity which has the effect of increasing the starting torque and lets the motor run cooler. This increases the durability of the juicer, particularly when it is used heavily.

It is important to realize that this juicer is not suitable for juicing grasses or large pieces of greens.  It is more efficient for the pieces to be small so that they feed through into the juicer and processed properly.

    • 1 x tamper
    • 1 x funnel
    • 1 x bowl

Motor

The juicer comes with a GE 1/3 HP motor and is strong enough to juice any vegetable or fruit. The motor provides industrial strength power and delivers an improved mastication process which sees fruit and vegetable fibers breaking loose with a high volume of cells saturated with important enzymes.

Performance

This Champion is designed in such a way so as to produce the highest possible quality juices and foods. The juice is dark in color which indicates it contains more pigments and nutrients. Conversely, the extracted pulp is a pale color. The taste of the juice also reflects this as it will be rich, sweet and full bodied compared to other juices.

One particular performance feature that customers love is the floating cutter which acts to separate juice from pulp in one quiet, continuous and effortless operation, with the added bonus of not needing to stop and clean out the machine during processing.

Materials

The juicer is made of stainless steel construction and the blades are made of tempered stainless steel which have been cast directly into the cutter. This ensures strength and durability which effectively allows for many years of use. They also never separate or fall prey to rust.

Type

This juicer is a commercial grade masticating juicer and will extract much more slowly than a centrifugal juicer. However the amount of juice extracted will be higher, as evidenced by the drier pulp.

Feed Type

The Champion juicer comes with a 1.75″ diameter feeding tube and this allows you to process larger vegetables without cutting them. It is advisable though, that you don’t try to force very large pieces of food through the system because it will extract more thoroughly if you use smaller pieces.

Output

With the Champion G5-PG710, you will be able to juice carrots, celery, parsley, cabbage, spinach, apples, tomatoes, bell peppers, kiwi, pineapple, melon and many more. It will also produce nut butters, frozen fruit sorbets, baby foods, ice creams, sherbets, purees, salsa, muesli, and more. A grain mill attachment which can be purchased separately will extend the output capability to include grains and flours.

Pulp

The pulp will be dry in nature, indicating that the maximum amount of juice has been extracted. It will also be pale in color.

Cleaning

The Champion commercial juicer is easy to use. Designed with simplicity in mind, the Champion doesn’t require nuts, bolts, screws or clamps. Assembly can be completed in seconds. Cleaning is equally quick and painless.
