We are nuts about juicing and the sound of our Omega juice extractor churning out our morning juice is truly music to our ears. It has been 2 years since we began our journey to live healthy and better lives and increasing our fresh fruit and vegetable intake has been a big part of it. We grew tired rather quickly of salads and snacks and soon after we started doing some research on getting a juicing machine.
Once we understood the differences between the various types of juicers it became clear to us which direction we wanted to go. We really love leafy foods, so we decided to get an Omega juicer, and it was one of the best choices that we ever made. If you are looking to change your eating habits and get a quality masticating juice extractor, we definitely suggest any of the models below.
This is currently one of the most popular masticating juicers available. It has been a top performing unit for years and it still continues to get fantastic feed back from owners. The Omega 8006 has a modern black and chrome finish, a powerful motor that runs at only 80RPM and has sturdy construction and durable parts that can provide years of quality juicing. This unit is a favorite for those who need to juice leafy green veggies as well as other produce.
This is the latest generation Omega masticating juicer. The NC800 has all of the same qualities of the J8006 but with some added improvements to make your juicing experience better and even more efficient. The feed chute has been enlarged to allow larger pieces of fruits and vegetables. This saves on prep time as now you do not have to cut up larger produce into small pieces to fit into the machine.
There is also an new adjustable end cap that that can be used to customize the unit depending on the hardness of the produce being juiced. This also enables the juicer to obtain a slightly higher juice yield. There are not as many owner ratings for the Omega NC800 since it is a newer model, but the feed back so far has been sky high for this juicer from users.
This models is exactly the same as the J8006 in all regards except for the color. This model is white for those who are not enamored with shiny small kitchen appliances. It comes with all of the qualities that have made the Omega 8006 a best seller, but with a more neutral color. The Omega 8004 as well as its shiny brother have been best sellers for years and they are a great way to unlock the power and nutrients from raw fruits and vegetables at a slightly lower price point than Omega’s latest generation juicers.
This is Omega’s vertical masticating juicer for those that want a top quality juicer that does not take up a lot of counter space. This unit has a smaller footprint and is more convenient for smaller kitchens or for folks that wish to minimize countertop clutter. The Omega VRT350 merges the company’s expertise in producing efficient masticating juicing machines with a vertical design that takes up less space.
So What Makes An Omega Juicer So Great?
A lot of owners think of these as not only the top masticating juicers but the top juice extractors period. You can read more detailed reviews for yourself to decide which of these juicing machines will serve you best in your kitchen. Some of the aspects of these small appliances that have them rated so highly and recommended so often include:
A masticating juicer works by using a screw like device to grind and squeeze the juice out of fruit and vegetables. Omega models use high strength and extremely durable parts to handle this process as efficiently as possible. This produces a very high juice yield and results in left over pulp that is very dry. When buying produce for your juicer you want to get every last drop of juice out of it and not waste your money and these machines are great for maximizing your efforts.
Leafy Green Vegetables
For those who plan to juice a lot of different leafy vegetables such as kale, wheatgrass and spinach, the low speed masticating action of the juicers listed above produces great results as they generally handle these types of foods better than centrifugal juicers. Any one of the machines above would be perfect to prepare your favorite green juice recipes and deliver the taste and nutrition that these types of veggies can give you.
Omega’s masticating juicers are relatively quiet as well, especially when compared to centrifugal juicers. The motor of these juicers typically runs at only 80RPM and provides a slow grinding of fruits and vegetables. This is great if you juice at a time of the day when others may be sleeping or you simply cannot stand louder machines.
Easy To Use
These juicers are designed to be simple to operate and clean. The best juicer is one that you will use every day, and Omega juicers are designed with this in mind. The parts that need cleaning are easy to disassemble and wipe clean.
Omega not only makes models that can juice, but they are also capable of making nut butters, pasta, baby food, almond milk, grind spices and more. They come with different nozzles to handle a wide range of kitchen chores.
Omega has some of the best warranties in the industry and their masticating juicers come with a generous 10 or 15 year warranty. They stand by their products and you can rest assured that your investment in their juicers is safe and protected.
We have been quite amazed with just how well Omega’s line of masticating juicers has been received over the years by owners. They have been around for years and they are still some of the most popular, best selling, and highest customer rated juicers on the market. If you are shopping for a new juicer then any one of the models above are definitely worth considering for years of hassle-free juicing.
