High-End (Usually $250)
We tested this model with a barrage of fresh fruit tests. It juiced
five grapefruit and 10 oranges with ease. The centerpiece of this
unit is its one-half pound stainless steel blade. Previous low-end
juicers we have used use non-steel blades. Over time, these pieces
are the first to go, simply through normal wear and tear.
Because of its metal blade, plus its strong, heavy motor, the Omega
4000 is probably the best of the pulp-ejector juicers on the market.
Another juice that we tested the Omega 4000
with was the classic,
yet simple, cantaloupe juice. We fed the entire melon, rind and all,
through the juicer. The unit produced a surprisingly tiny amount
of pulp at the other end. If you wish to get as much juice and vitamins
as possible from your juices, these heavy-duty juicers are the best.
No wonder this comes with a 15-year manufacturer's warranty.
Omega Juicer Drawbacks
It takes a little longer to clean compared to the smaller
machines. The metal blade is a separate piece from the rotator. This
apparatus is held together by a plastic wing-nut. The design is more
complicated, but necessary given the larger motor and heavy metal
This means there are more parts for clean-up, which if one juices
regularly is a common task. People who are less into juicing may
wish to step down to a smaller juicer that is quicker to clean.
