Omega NC800 Juicer Review

December 18, 20160 Comments

Omega NC800 Juicer

If you are familiar with Omega juicers, you will notice that the Omega NC800 Juicer is essentially a new improved version of the J8000 series, such as the J8003, J8004, J8005, J8006 Omega masticating juicers. The Omega NC800 has been designed as a horizontal masticating juicer with a multi-stage extraction process.

Like other masticating juicers, this Omega juicer works at a slow motor speed. This is how oxidation, heat build-up and excessive foam is prevented from forming in the juice. If juicing leafy greens forms part of your juicing regimen, the Omega can manage them with ease and is particularly well suited to fine produce such as wheatgrass.

In addition to producing an excellent yield, the juicer can also be used to make other natural food items such as baby food, healthy snacks such as pure fruit ice creams, as well as nut butters, soy and almond milk.

Features of the Omega NC800 Juicer

Design – a horizontal juicer, silver in color with continuous juicing and automatic ejection of pulp
Type – masticating juicer
Motor – features an 80 RPM rotation speed that is typical of masticating juicers. The low speed ensures that foam does not form in the juice and also prevents oxidation and heating of the juice.
Extraction – features a ‘Dual Stage’ extraction process whereby produce is tightly compressed and then ground and pressed via the auger.
Feed Chute – is wider than the upright Omega masticating juicers and means less chopping and preparation time for users
Juice Yield – is high as evidenced by the resultant dry pulp
Settings – there are 5 adjustable settings available and you can use these in conjunction with the various produce types for maximum juice output.
Pulp – is dry, indicating efficient performance of the juicer and a high juice yield. This is a good thing because you will receive good value from your produce.
Juice Quality – is good with high output and little or no foam. There is also very little or no pulp evident.
Cleaning – is easy. Customers really liked this feature and felt it made a difference to their motivation to juice on a regular basis.
Inclusions – 6 x nozzles and 2 x juicing screens

Specifications

  • Measures: 14.5 x 6.5 x 15.5 inches
     Weighs: 20 pounds
    Item No: NC800 HDS
    Warranty: 15 Years

What’s Great About the Omega NC800 Juicer?

  • Very easy to clean
  • The screen area is small and it’s easy to remove pulp from
  • Parts are wide which helps with ease of cleaning

Customer Feedback and Reviews

The Omega NC800 Juicer is rated very highly by customers. Things they like about it include its easy clean features, quiet operation, horizontal design, juice output and quality, wide feed chute, reverse button, as well as the addition of five output settings.

Recommendation

The Omega NC800 Juicer is available online and you can find their most competitive price for it here. Customers like the horizontal aspect of the Omega masticating juicer as well as the wider feed tube however the best feature was its easy to clean functionality. As one customer pointed out, the fast clean up makes a difference between juicing and not juicing. In my opinion, based on the price, the reputation of Omega Juicers, the capability of this machine  and the tremendous feedback from customers, this juicer is highly recommended.

Omega VERT Slow Juicer VSJ843 Review

July 14, 2016
Omega VER843 Vertical Masticating Juicer

The Omega VERT Slow Juicer is a vertical power house that produces high quantities of juices of the highest quality. Juices made using this juicer are foam free and feature reduced heat build-up that acts to delay the process of oxidization, which causes a reduction in the nutrient quality of the juice. Without oxidization, the juice retains its full quota of nutrients and nutrition rich enzymes. The shelf life of your juice is also increased.

Check Price and Availability Here

This is brought about through a combination of the juicer’s squeezing system and a slow motor speed. The low RPM is much lower than earlier models of vertical masticating juices manufactured by Omega. The result is that it is possible to create a plethora of fruit and vegetable juices, green juices, nut milks, as well as frozen fruit sorbets and smoothies.

The Omega VERT Slow Juicer also features a newly designed dual-edge auger that has a tight fit tolerance. This works to break down fiber in the juice so that it is smooth and nutrient rich. It also works to reduce heat build-up and oxidation. Pulp is automatically ejected and an automatic cleaning system is also part of the new design. This ensures the screen stays clear and works efficiently.

Features of the Omega VERT Slow Juicer

Design – is vertical and compact with a contemporary look

Type – a vertical masticating juicer for high quality and quantity juice production

Motor Speed – is currently the lowest available from Omega and features a motor which rotates at forty three revolutions per minute. Omega has calculated this is around half the speed of their earlier model vertical masticating juicers. This means higher quality and quantity of juice.

Color – silver, white or red providing a contemporary look that will suit all kitchen decors

Suitable For – squeezing soft and hard fruits and vegetables including leafy greens and wheatgrass. It’s also perfect for nut milks.

Squeezing Action - is gentle and keeps healthy enzymes intact. It also helps to reduce heat build-up, delays the oxidation process, and increased the juice's shelf life. It works together with the new dual-edge auger to achieve this.

Dual-edge Auger - The tighter fit tolerance of the new dual-edged auger results in straining more juice and it also breaks down fiber for a smoother juice which is full of nutrients. Ultimately, a higher amount of juice is produced that is foam free and enriched with quality enzymes.

Pulp – is very dry and automatically ejected so that juicing can continue uninterrupted

Cleaning – is automatic by way of an auto-cleaning system. It ensures the clean-up process is easy and quick.

Made In – Korea as are all Omega juicers these days. Quality is considered to be very good

TIP - do not use hot water on the screen during cleaning as it can make the pulp more difficult to pass through

Omega J8006 Masticating Juicer

July 3, 20160 Comments
Omega 8006

Omega 8006

The Omega 8006 Masticating Juicer has a powerful motor which operates at a steady 80 rpm. Fruits and vegetables have their juice slowly ground and extracted, complete with vitamins, minerals and enzymes. The second step in the juice extraction involves separating the pulp from the juice. This dual process results in pulp free juice, a high level of juice extraction with dry pulp and automatic pulp-ejection.

This juicer also comes with four feet for stabilizing purposes, features heavy duty construction, yet performs quietly with no heat build up. There is no foaming or clogging to contend with and the unit is easy to operate and clean. You need to be aware that the Omega does not produce juice at a high speed and there is a requirement that fruit and vegetables be cut up into small pieces prior to being fed into the feed tube. So there is the matter of preparation and production time to consider.

Check Price and Availability Here

Features of the Omega 8006

Motor

  • Unlike centrifugal juicers which come with high speed motors, the Omega 8006 comes with a low speed 80 RPM motor.
  • The low speed motor ensures that there is no foaming, clogging or heat buildup which could compromise the juice.
  • The low speed motor also produces considerably less noise than other juice machines.
  • The auger can be reversed in the event of something becoming lodged in the mastication extraction tube.

Performance

  • The Omega 8006 is known as a high yield juicer because it extracts the maximum amount of juice from the produce.
  • This juicer uses a dual action juicing process.  First, the fruits or vegetables are ground into a pulp.  Then the juice is extracted from the pulp. It is this process which enables all the nutrients to be extracted from the fruits and vegetables.  It also ensures that you end up with pulp free juice.
  • The juicer comes with an auto pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing. There is no need to stop to clear out pulp between various insertions of produce.

Materials

  • The Omega juicer has a newly designed auger which is a translucent black. This is a material that is called ULTEM.

Type

  • This juicer is a masticating juicer, which means the fruit or vegetable is literally crushed in an auger (a big screw) and then compressed, so that the juice flows through a small screen in the bottom, while the pulp is pushed forward where it gets ejected at the far end.
  • A characteristic of a masticating juicer is that is has a very slow extraction rate and it is also  known for its special ability to juice green leafy vegetables. With a masticating juicer there is absolutely no chance of leafy greens sticking to the side of a spinning centrifugal juicer basket and throwing it out of balance. The typical slow, grinding process of the masticating juicer is suitable for all fruits and vegetables and will produce a concentrated juice without nutrient loss.

Feed Type

  • The Omega 8006 has a circular feed tube, however it is quite small and measures 1.5 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 using small pieces of fruit and vegetables.  Hence the narrow feed tube.

Output

  • Output tends to be slower because of the mastication process, however the juice extraction level is high.

Pulp

  • The pulp produced by the Omega Masticating Juicer is usually quite dry.  This is because of the slower juicing process and the method of extraction, although the pulp from soft fruits may be wetter.

Cleaning

  • Components are detachable for easy cleaning.  The clean up involves cleaning the shoot the food comes down, the auger, the screens and the collector bins – either or both depending upon what you are doing.

What is included?

  • The package includes the juicer, screens, auger and collector bins

Product Details

Product Dimensions – 14.5 x 6.5 x 15.5 inches
Motor – 150 watts with 5 speeds
Item model number – 8006
Warranty – 15 year warranty

Pros

  • The warranty has been increased from 10 to 15 years.
  • It runs very quietly with the low rpm motor
  • It produces exceptionally dry pulp
  • The 80 rpm auger results in less oxidation which in turn, results in less of a brown color in apple juice for example.
  • Very easy to use and clean up afterwards
  • Quality materials

Cons

  • Some people don’t like having to cut up the vegetables and fruit first and find the grinding extraction to be slow. This is really just a characteristic of a masticating juicer. If you want speed, you are better off with a centrifugal juicer.
  • Some customers ran the juicer without anything in it and encountered a problem with the auger which produced a fine white powder. Please note, the juicer must have something in it before you turn it on. This is more of a user issue rather than a design fault in the juicer.

Customer reviews

The Omega 8006 is a popular juicer and customers have give this juicer an outstanding rating. This indicates that customers are very happy with their purchase and the nutrition filled juice it creates. To read what customers had to say, you can read the reviews here.

Price

The Omega 8006 is available online. The best price I found includes free shipping, if you qualify. To check for the most recent price, you can see it here. This is a great savings off the current list price.

Recommendation – Buy

This is a another excellent juice maker and the majority of customers have left reviews. Again, a few people had issues, mostly with plastic shavings from the auger, however, the best advice here seems to be that it is a good idea to listen to the Omega reps and do not run the juicer without anything in it. Any manufacturer who can push out the warranty period by 5 years has produced a winner and if you are in the market for a masticating juicer, this is one of the best.

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

For further information, please visit the following URL to see the Omega J8005 user manual: www.omegajuicers.com/media/manuals/omega8005.pdf

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.

Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer Review

January 30, 20150 Comments

The Omega J8004 Masticating Juicer is according to customers, one of the best juicers on the market. It features the Omega dual action extraction process whereby the produce is ground to a pulp and then the juice is extracted from it. You can find more about its features and benefits below however it is worth noting that the Omega J8004 is basically the same juicer as the Omega J8006 but comes in white rather than the chrome finish.

Omega 8004

Omega 8004

If you compare juicers, meaning the J8004 and the J8006, you will find that the white J8004 is approximately $40 – $50 less expensive than its counterpart with the chrome finish. Customers love the fact that it is cheaper too. If you are tired of noisy, produce guzzling centrifugal juicers which leave juice behind in the pulp, you might enjoy the benefits of this one instead.

 

Features of the Omega J8004 Masticating Juicer

Motor

The Omega 8004 juicer has a commercial motor which operates at 80 RPMs and besides being very efficient at extracting juice, runs very quietly and ensures that clogging, heat build- up and annoying foam, does not compromise the quality of the juice.

Performance

Dual stage juicer whereby produce is ground into a pulp and then juice is extracted from the pulp. The juice yield is high however the trade-off is that it is a much slower process than a centrifugal juicer. The slow speed ensures no foam in the juice or any heat build-up. It also has an auto pulp-ejection feature which means you do not have to stop juicing so long as you have a supply of prepared produce ready to go. It also runs very quietly.

Materials

The juicer is made from UL- and cUL-approved GE Ultem which is a plastic that is a lot harder and definitely safer melamine. This material is also used for the augur.

Type

The Omega J8004 Nutrition Center is a single gear masticating juicer which literally grinds the produce to pulp before extracting the juice.

Feed Type

The feed tube is a narrow circular 1.5″ which is the only downside to this Omega masticating juicer. You will need to do some pre-chopping before feeding your produce through into the juicer.

Output

Masticating juicers typically have a higher juice yield than centrifugal juicers and the Omega 8004 can produce approximately 2 cups of juice over a 5-6 minute period.

Pulp

This is dry as the juicer is efficient at extracting the juice. Some customers like to run the pulp back through the juicer so as to obtain the absolute maximum amount of juice from their produce.

Cleaning

Cleaning is very easy as the Omega masticating juicer is quick to disassemble. Rinse the removable parts sooner rather than later to avoid bits of fibre becoming stuck or you could let them soak while you are drinking the juice. This involves the screens, auger and collector bins.

    • Juicer

Omega J8003 Masticating Juicer Review

October 2, 20140 Comments
Omega J8003

Omega J8003

The Omega J8003 Masticating Juicer has a powerful 1/3 horsepower motor which has the ability to power through plant fibers to extract juice which is filled with vitamins, minerals and enzymes from not just vegetables and fruits, but leafy greens and wheatgrass as well. If you are health conscious, being able to juice leafy greens and wheat-grass will provide a great deal of variety to your juicing regimen.

One of the most useful features of this the Omega J8003 juicer is its versatility, because it will easily perform several other useful kitchen functions. For example, it will grind nuts into butters, extrude pasta (with the included pasta nozzles), grind coffee and spices, mince herbs and garlic, make baby food and soy milk. Even though these functions provide a lot of versatility, most customers seem to just use the juicing feature.

The unit features a dual-stage juicing system which basically means that two processes are used to produce the juice that is, grinding then filtering. This ensures maximum efficiency, while its low rotation speed of 80 RPMs means no foaming, no clogging, and no heat build-up in the unit. Other notable features include a high juice yield with very dry pulp, an automatic pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing, a built-in “reverse” mode to prevent food from getting stuck, heavy-duty construction, and quiet operation. It is also easy to assemble, operate, and clean.

Features of the Omega J8003

Motor

  • 1/3-horsepower single-phase induction motor
  • 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 no foaming, clogging, or heat build-up.
  • Reverse mode – assists with eliminating clogging


Performance

In addition to juicing fruits and vegetables, the multi-purpose machine 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 linguini with the included pasta nozzles. It also has an auto pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing.

Type

The J8003 is a masticating juicer with dual-stage juicing capabilities. This means that fruits and vegetables are initially ground in the auger before being filtered through a metal screen. The slow process ensures that there is no foam in the extracted juice.

Feed Type

Most customers found this a little frustrating because the feed chute is quite small compared to other juicers. It is 1 ½Omega J8003 Feed tube and gear inches in diameter. This means that fruits and vegetables must be chopped into small pieces to fit in there. While customers love the capabilities of this juicer, many people commented on the time required to prepare the fruit and vegetables.

Output

A masticating juicer typically produces a high juice yield, although it is worth noting that some customers felt the juice yield was not as high as they were expecting.

Pulp

Because of the high juice yield, the pulp will be very dry. If this is not the case, the juicer is not earning its keep. One customer discovered that she could use the pulp from her carrot juice, to add into muffins and cakes to receive the most value from both juicer and the produce.

Cleaning

To make cleaning as easy as possible, it’s best to clean the components before you drink the juice. The longer you leave it, the harder it is to clean. There is one main unit that comes off the motor that you take apart to clean and this breaks down into three pieces. You can run the components under hot water, although the screen on the nose end of the juicer needs a little more attention. You’ll need to use the scrubbing brush which is included and make sure you remove all the fibers which may be stuck in the screen.

Benefits

The main benefit you will receive is being able to get all of the essential nutrients from fruits and vegetables in the form of a beverage that is very healthy, on a regular basis. Another benefit is the money savings you will make because you will no longer need to buy vegetable and fruit juices.
