Along with lemons, can really help some people get over the "green taste". I rarely write reviews, so I hope you understand how happy we are with the Omega , and I hope I've given you some information to help make a choice, because, really, it's a tough one. There are a lot of juicers out there, and I think the differences may be more personal and the type of produce you use than actual performance of the machine. This review is coming from someone with nearly 20 years of juicing experience that has realized tangible benefits long ago and am sold on the need to juice.
I then educated myself on every juicer on the market - learning the brands, watching endless youtube videos and juice-off comparisons, and of course following that up with reading numerous customer reviews. Investing in the right juicer is a big decision and it is cheaper to get right in the beginning. So this review will share what I learned and I hope this helps you make a decision.
First, know this, 1 the best juicer is the one you use regularly - if it is difficult or too time-consuming to use or clean or too be big to fit in a prominent place in your kitchen the honeymoon will be short.
If you juice only once in a while, the higher investment will never pay for itself. But, if you juice 2x day, or for several people, it could be within 3 years of so before the more expensive juicer actually pays for itself. The above cost analysis was for all those people on the fence about price. What is does well: Leafy Greens, Wheatgrass, Celery, Carrots. Like almost all masticating juicers, soft fruits are not their thing, they do better in centrifugal juicers or smoothies.
Centrifugal juicers just do not leafy greens well at all, period. Masticating juicers like this squeeze the life, I mean juice, out to the cells. These are the best way to get nutrients from greens since we are not cows with four stomachs designed to break down the cellulose walls to extract the nutrients, humans don't do this well so the need to chew their greens many, many times to break it down before swallowing.
Few of us do that, we often ignore the parsley with comes with a meal, even though ounce for ounce it is the most nutritious thing on the plate. And the few times someone like me does put it in my mouth I chew lightly and swallow since it is not a pleasant taste.
Leafy greens and wheatgrass do very well. Do not underestimate cleanup as a factor in your selection. Some juicers take in excess of 10 minutes to properly clean. Perhaps not a big deal if you make a large batch for two days but if you make a glass to drink fresh twice a day then cleanup time is serious consideration. Cleanup time on a juicer is mostly related to the size of the screen which needs to be cleaned right a way with a brush including with the juicer else the holes get clogged and the process becomes less efficient.
The Omega model has a short screen and only a few parts and once you master a workflow for cleanup is literally less than 2 minutes, probably the shortest time for any juicer on the market. The more expensive Omega Vert is only 10 years. That is the only difference!!! However, it is known for stalling on carrots, clogging on stringy celery, and having plenty of pulp in the juice - see reviews. Compared to the Omega series, based on video juicer-offs, it has a lower yield and much higher foam for wheatgrass and greens like kale.
Also, cleanup is about 2x longer so the faster feed may be compensated by the longer cleanup depending on how much you are juicing at one time. Even with that, the yields are lower than the Omega and the net price would be more. But, since the blades wiz by so quickly they oxidize the juice - this is evidenced in the foam. As a result these juices have a shorter shelf life. Which is not a problem if you drink your juice right of way.
But, that's not all, this can harm the enzymes. So quality of juice is not as good, but total time is significantly less - lower quality is always better than anything you buy in the store so if you are in a rush each morning and only can make time to drop a whole apple and a handful of carrots down the shoot, get a centrifugal juicer.
A better juicer that is not used is a useless juicer. Double auger juicers feed leafy greens and wheatgrass in very well - they will literally pull them in between the two augers. This is great but with harder things like carrots, you will need to push down unlike a single auger which will go in easily and be broken-up during the initial feed.
The Greenstar model will also produce a lower yield and more foam with wheatgrass and leafy greens but will do better in terms of yield with carrots, apples, celery and cucumbers. The longer screens on these models add to the cleanup time.
The Super Angel is by far the most efficient juicer for just about everything and cleanup to faster than the Greenstar.
This is the Rolls Royce of juicers and possibly the best juicer in the world and will juice anything that can be juiced via a two step process that first triturates break apart the produce and then presses out the juice in a hydraulic press. This is the juicer recommended for the Gerson diet since it has the best quality and quantity. Good choice for big families, especially if you want to save on baby food, but not as great if juicing for one - as I am.
Frozen Banana Berry Smoothies: The Omega has attachments for pasta, baby food, spaghetti, and a blank screen. I have used the blank to make frozen banana and berry smoothies. These are great and better than ice cream. I personally add a few whole nuts and coffee beans so they get ground up to make a great treat with a caffeine buzz.
Smoothest if you run it through twice. Invest in a good sharp knife. Start and end with a carrot - if you are using carrots.
All masticating juicers require some back-pressure at the end and the harder pulp of carrots is perfect - softer apples are less ideal. I also end with a carrot to push out any slush. Alternate your produce as you juice, do a carrot, a few leafs, celery, then a carrot Instead of doing all your carrots, then all the apples Don't force it too fast, push it in slowly, it's not a Breville.
Celery leafs are bitter, consider cutting them off before juicing Clean immediately, I clean mine before I drink or finish my juice - easy since cleaning is very fast and easy with this design. Greens are strong tasting and can have a fast and potent detox effect - headaches, runs to the bathroom.
Carrots and apples help to sweeten the bitterness of some leafy greens like kale. Any headaches and sudden bowel movements will go away with time as you body detoxes and adjusts - those problems are the reason why you should juice, not why you shouldn't!!! Other fruits should not be mixed - something to due with digestion efficiency, sweet vs alkaline. Do not juice the skins of orange or grapefruit - they are slightly toxic. With an empty stomach juice gets absorbed best without taxing your body.
I hope the above helps you see I think it is the best value juicer for most people. Decide your priorities and pick the one that is best. This is a long term investment in yourself, try not to be cheap and ideally buy from a place you can return if what you get is not for you. I love mine and use it twice a day.
Juicing is a simple way to get essential pro-life nutrient dense foods efficiently into your body - nutrients are already digested saving your body the work. Very important if you don't eat a lots of veggies, especially greens, like me. This is lifestyle choice to protect, prevent and heal your body so the best juicer for you will be the one you will use daily.
This model is easy to use, and one the fastest and easiest to clean - under 2 minutes. Slower than centrifugal juicers but the quality takes time, especially with the dark greens. If you owned a million dollar race horse how would you feed it? An ounce of prevention is worth pounds of toxic medicine. As a side note, in the past few months of using using this model, about twice day, with plenty of greens like wheatgrass growing my own on my balcony , kale, collards, parsley So glad I made a move to a masticating juicer to get those well needed greens in my body.
The juicer itself is very likely a great item for those who only juice periodically like once in a long while They did for the first two times and then these last two times NO response, and I've had to buy a replacement part when it should've been free with their warranty for defective parts. I have had the screen replaced now 4 times in 2 years and had the chute replaced as well. Should such a defect be discovered within ten 10 years from date of purchase, Omega Products, Inc.
