Omega Juicer Buyer's Guide

Living a healthy lifestyle should be easy. But with today's hectic schedules, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. With our schedules more tightly packed than ever, it's almost impossible to squeeze proper meals into our daily life. For this reason, we often end up choosing quick, unhealthy meals. The USDA recommends that adults between the ages of 19 and 50 should consume anywhere from 2 to 3 cups of vegetables per day and 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fruit per day, depending on age and gender. That may seem like a lot, but it's not impossible. An easy way to add extra servings of fruits and vegetables to your daily diet is by juicing! Of course, not all juicers are created equal. Some process fruits and vegetables too quickly and will overheat, causing the juice to oxidize quickly and lose the vital nutrients that make juicing a healthy lifestyle routine. Omega Juicers were created to avoid this problem, and maximize the amount of vital nutrients extracted from your fruits and vegetables, so you get the most from your juice, glass after glass. But choosing an Omega juicer can be somewhat daunting. There are so many to choose from and it can be difficult trying to find the best one to suit your needs. At Kitchen Kapers, we understand how overwhelming the task can seem and that's why we've put together this Omega Juicer Buyer's Guide, to help you find the perfect juicer for you. Ask yourself the following questions and start your journey to finding the perfect Omega Juicer, and a healthier lifestyle.

1. Do you need a machine that will strictly act as a juicer, or would you prefer a machine that can also make nut butters, soymilk, and extrude pasta?

A) I would like a machine that acts strictly as a juicer. - Your best bet would be to go with a machine like the Omega Vert Vertical Juicer model or the Omega Mega Mouth Juicer model. These machines focus solely on juicing, and produce some of the tastiest, healthiest juice you'll ever drink.
B) I would prefer a machine that can also make nut butters, soymilk, and extrude pasta. - If you want a machine that does more than just act as a juicer, you should purchase one of the Juice Extractor Nutrition Centers, such as the Omega 8006. These units are ideal for juicing, as well as creating nut butters, making soymilk, extruding pasta, making baby food, chopping and mincing fruits, vegetables and herbs, grinding coffee beans and flours, and even making fresh frozen desserts.

2. Is counter space/cabinet height an issue?

A) Counter space is an issue. I do not have a lot of counter space in my kitchen. - If counter space is at a premium for you then you may want to consider purchasing the Omega Vert VRT330 Vertical Juicer. This juicer has a small footprint, and is just 6.81" in diameter.
B) Cabinet height is an issue. I do not have a lot of under counter space in my kitchen. - If cabinet height is more of an issue, then you may want to consider the low profile Juice Extractor Nutrition Centers. These machines are great for those with low cabinet clearance, as they are just 15 1/2" tall fully assembled and store easily at only 10" tall when disassembled.

3. Do you have an idea of what you would like to spend on your machine?

A) I would prefer to purchase a more economically priced juicer. - If you're new to juicing or are searching for a great model to begin juicing with, your best bet would be either the Omega J8003 or Mega Mouth models. These two models will allow you to incorporate juicing into your life, without making a huge monetary investment.
B) I would like to make an investment in my juicer and my future health. - If you're ready to make the jump to a more serious juicer or nutrition center, then your best choices would be either the Vert Vertical Juicer or the HD Nutriton Center J8006. These are Omega's most popular models and will bring you the best of what their juicers have to offer. If you're looking for top of the line, then look no further.

4. Do you need the juicer for juicing leafy greens and wheatgrass?

A) Yes, my juicer must be capable of juicing wheatgrass and leafy greens. - If you need a juicer that's capable of juicing leafy greens and wheatgrass then you should go with a Vert Vertical Juicer or one of the Juice Extractor Nutrition Centers.
B) No, my juicer does not need to juice wheatgrass or leafy greens. - If juicing leafy greens is not an issue for you, then your best bet would be to go with the Mega Mouth juicer.

5. Do you need a high-capacity juicer? Or is juicing time not a concern?

A) I need a juicer that can juice fruits and vegetables quickly and with minimal prep. - If you need to juice large amounts of fruits and vegetables quickly, and you won't be juicing wheatgrass or leafy greens, then you should consider the Mega Mouth juicer.
B) Juicing time is not a concern. - Your best bet would be to go with one of the low speed juicers like one of the Juice Extractor Nutrition Centers or the Vert Vertical Juicer. They will preserve the beneficial enzymes in the juice.

Why should you by an Omega Juicer?
Living a healthy lifestyle should be easy. But with today's hectic schedules, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. When it comes to your health, you shouldn't have to compromise, and with a little help from Omega Juicers and Nutrition Centers, you don't have to settle. Choose to live your best life, with Omega.

The Omega Family of Juicers
The Vert Vertical Juicer is perfect for those who really want to start incorporating juicing into their daily routine. This low speed system can process wheatgrass and leafy greens and maintains all of the healthy enzymes extracted from the fruits and vegetables for up to 72 hours without degradation. This juicer gives you the highest degree of extraction and the healthiest possible juice.

The Nutrition Centers, such as the Omega 8006 and the Omega 8003 are great for those who want more than a juicer. These machines really do it all. They juice regular fruits and vegetables, wheatgrass and leafy greens, make nut butters, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices, mince herbs and garlic, make baby food, soymilk and even frozen desserts. The Nutrition Centers are also ideal for those with peanut and tree nut allergies because some companies that make nut butters will process different types of nuts on the same equipment, which makes it possible for cross contamination to occur. Nut allergies can be severe, so much so, that even the tiniest trace amounts of the nut can cause anaphylaxis and even death. With the nutrition centers, you never have to worry about potential dangers, because you know what foods have been processed on your machine, and therefore you never have to worry about cross contamination. Similarly, the nutrition centers also allow you to make your own fresh pastas at home. If someone in your family has a gluten allergy, contamination won't be a concern if you use the machine to make gluten-free pasta.

The Mega Mouth makes juicing quick and effortless. It is ideal for those beginning to juice or those in need of a standard juicer. This powerhouse can easily accommodate larger portions and even whole fruits, cutting prep time in half. It is made to give you the maximum amount of juice in the least amount of time. Omega Juicers are easy to use, easy to clean and built to last. They are the only company to offer machines that are both Household & Commercially Approved by Underwriters Laboratories. Their durability is trusted and that is why they offer 10 to 15-year warranties on their juicers and nutrition centers.

Q & A with Omega Juicers

Why omega?

Omega has a long history and great warranties. We started as a family business. We go back to the late 1950s. We were the first in the market for some of the products and technologies. It's a great name in history in juicing and people know to come to us for having the products. The nice thing now is companies typically make one style of juicer, but we are actually the only company that makes every style of juicer. So if there's anything you want to be juicing, although what's right for me may not be right for you, we do carry that style model. Omega is a sort of one-stop-shopping.

What's the difference between 8003/8005 & 8004/8006?

The 8003 and 8005 are the same exact machine except for coloring; the 8005 is the chrome version. When you upgrade to the 8004 and 8006, the same thing - the 8006 is the chrome version. When you go from the lower two machines to the higher two machines, it's the auger and warranty that are the difference, plus it's a completely different body style.

The 8004 & 8006 are the most recent generation of Nutrition Centers. They're the "HD" version of the 8003 & 8005. People like the handle that makes it easier to use the 8004 & 8006, and they have a more durable stance that people seem to like.

While the style of juice cup and pulp cup are physically different for the two models due to body style, the machines come with the same accessories.

What does dual stage masticating extraction mean?

When you put a carrot into the machine, the auger has a pretty wide opening where just it basically brutally breaks apart that carrot into smaller pieces. Once it gets past that stage and gets to the second stage, it's actually more of a fine squeezing process where it grips the material and squeezes it against the screen to now extract the juice from it. It's just the transition of what happens when it first hits that auger to what it does during that second portion.

What does it mean to say "1/3 Horsepower 3600 RPM motor gears down to 80 RPMs 2 horsepower with gear reduction?"

This is a tricky one. If you talk to an engineer they'll say it's impossible. You can't change a horsepower. What that means is if you take something that's high speed and gear it down to a lower speed, you're giving it a lot more torque. So if you were to have that high-speed machine trying to do the carrot it wouldn't really work because it's only 1/3 horsepower. But because that high-speed machine can easily go to gear-reduction and turn it at that slower speed, now it has enough torque to actually crunch through carrot after carrot. So it works at what we estimate to be the equivalent of a 2 horsepower motor if we were to try to do it through a direct drive where the shaft of the motor is directly connected to the auger. If we were to do a 2 horsepower motor at 80 rpms, the machine would be bigger and much more expensive.

It's just like a car. If you were to put it into fourth gear and try and pull away, it's not going to happen. If you try and drive it in first gear and do 40 mph, you'll get that high revving. It's trying to take that high-speed engine but be able to work at a low speed and pull a lot of weight.

What is a GE Ultem Auger? It's the trademark name of the heavy duty plastic used, from General electric.

Can the Mega Mouth handle leafy greens?

Mega mouth can handle leafy greens to a certain extent. It cannot handle wheat grass. Most high-speed juicers will handle leafy greens if you take kale or spinach and roll it into a ball and put it down the chute and instead of using the pusher, you use the carrot to push the greens down into the blade. You'll get some juice out of the greens just like other high-speed juicer, but it's not a "greens" juicer. So yes and no.

Are the pulp bins detachable? Yes.

What's dishwasher safe?

Most machines we promote them as top-shelf, but it's actually easier to hand-wash a juice extractor. The reason being if you look at the mega mouth juicer, it has a mesh screen. If you put that into the dishwasher, it's stainless steel so it'll be fine. But if there is pulp stuck to the screen before you put it into the dishwasher, a dishwasher is not designed to get that out. It's actually going to make it harder to get it out because the dishwasher is going to bake it into the screen a little bit. Almost all of the machines have a mesh like that, and it'll take you two minutes to run it under the water but probably 10 minutes to clean the pulp off if you put it into the dishwasher. All top-shelf parts, but we recommend hand-wash.

How would you characterize the three styles of Omega juicers?

The Mega Mouth is a high-speed, mainstream juicer that will do most fruits and vegetables, some leafy greens, it's for quick and fast mainstream juicing.

When you get to the nutrition center, it's a fruit & vegetable juicer, it does do the wheat grass and leafy greens, it will also do the non-juicing function like the nutter-butters and frozen desserts.

When you get to the vertical style machines, that will do every single juice that the nutrition center does, but it just won't do the non-juicing functions like the nutter-butters and the mincing and so on.

So if it's wheat grass, you can go nutrition center or the Vert. If it's carrots and apples, you can go with any of the machines. The benefit of the low speed, which is the nutrition center and the Vert, over the high-speed which is the Mega Mouth, is the Mega Mouth and other high-speed juicers out there, they all aerate the juice, which means after 20 or 30 minutes the degradation of the enzymes is so bad that most people shouldn't even bother drinking the juice after 30 minutes. Whereas with the low-speed machines like the nutrition center and the Vert, they don't oxidize the juice so you can actually store the juice for up to 72 hours.

Is there any aluminum in the machines?

No, the Omega juicers are made of stainless steel and plastics. The housing of the 8005 and the 8006 has a true chrome plating, but it does not come in contact with the juice.
