It’s the second omega i own. The first one is still functioning well and giving us many great juices.
I’ve had this juicer for about 6 months and i love it; not too much pulp, high quality juice, easy to clean and assemble, works quietly, and upu can’t beat the warranty. Hard veggies, like carrots and beets, can be a challenge but i’ve learned to slice them thinly and that eliminates jams. Very happy with this juicer.
I am really happy that i bought this. Really good juicer with high concentration juice output. With my old juicer, my juice grocery lasted only 2 days and with my omega juicer, it lasts for 4 days and thereby saving money and gets double the output. Also very easy to clean and takes less counter space with the round configuration. Here are the specifications for the Omega Juicers Omega Vertical Juicing System VSJ843RR:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- The tighter fit tolerance of the new dual-edge auger strains more juice and breaks down fiber to a palatable level for a smoother, nutrient-dense juice. This gentle squeezing action keeps healthy enzymes intact, reduces heat build-up, delays the oxidation process, and increasing the juice’s shelf life. Squeeze juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, even wheatgrass or make nut milks. Automatic pulp ejection, so you can juice continuously.
- The AUTO-CLEANING system keeps the screen clear, increasing the machines efficiency. After you are finished juicing, the AUTO-CLEANING system minimizes the clean-up process.
- The vertical design is compact, contemporary and productive. With the Omega VSJ843RR, form and function combine to give you the highest degree of extraction and the healthiest possible juice.
- The VSJ843RR, Juicer is the newest, lowest speed vertical masticating juicer in Omega’s offering.
Ok, so i have only used this once so far but. I still have a jack lalanne juicer sitting on my shelf. I used it quite a bit for a while, but got tired of the amount of time needed to juice and clean up. I juice for 4 people at a time. And any juicer that doesn’t have continuous pulp ejection is not worth the money. I was able to whiz through all the fruits and veggies and not have to take it apart to empty the pulp reservoir out. And the flavor of the juice was incredible.
It is a nice machine making rich juice and the self-feeding with munching sounds is fun for kids. Some of the reviewer mentioned about not overfeeding the machine – this is very true. If you become a friend with the auger and follow its speed, it is very quick and no hustle. I was hesitant about the need to pre-cut produce but actually the self-feeding function (again, if you follow the juicer’s speed) allows you to cut veggies and fruits that need so while already juicing. Just to give an idea to those who are like me all about speed and efficiency, it took me 1 hour 15 min on my second time to juice 1. 2 gallons out of very different produce (leaves, carrots, apples, beats, celery), including washing the produce and disassembling and washing the unit. Not superfast but much faster than the units that require constant pushing and much more juice than from centrifugal juicers. Cons: not dishwasher safe and a needs some time to adjust to the process of assembly.
Reviews from purchasers :
- This was my second juicer and I am super happy with it
- Solid machine a serious juicer.
- Great juicer for serious juicers. 😉
This is the bet slow juicer i have had. Previously i’e used breville fast juicer and kuwing slow juicer. This exceeds the kuwing whole slow juicer by far. Because less much less pulp in the juice than kuwing whole slow juicer. I highly recommend this to everyone.
I hate to use the words ‘love it’, but it is everything i had reviewed, and researched. I have owned two juicers before this one. One i wouldn’t recommend to my enemy. Burned the motor up after about twenty juice makings. The second was a replacement i bought and i am very happy with the cuisinart cje-1000, fantastic juicer and will probably keep it for a back up juicer. While having this one, i did my homework on masticating juicers. I looked in stores, read more reviews. Talk to others on their top rated juicers. It was tough, because there are so many. I decided on this omega vertical vsj843rr juicer for the following reasons: warranty 15 years, can you believe that, then 43 rpm (faster isn’t better) and a tough 150 watt motor.
I am in love, i wish i would have bought this a long time ago.
This was my second juicer and i am super happy with it, most veggies and fruits go through and come out dry on the other end. Clean-up is easy, it pretty much churns out most everything, just make sure to dice hard tubers like yams and sweet potatoes into small chunks, reprocess veggies like cucumber, they need to go through twice to get all the juice out of them. For the most part this juicer works amazing and produces minimal foam, which means very little oxidation of the food stuffs.
Without question, the best slow juicer on the market. The warranty alone justifies spending the money.
Just received my omega vsj843rr and made two batches of juice (apples, spinach, carrots, parsley, lemon, celery). Having watched all of the youtube videos prior to buying has helped avoid a lot of beginner mistakes, and i had no jamming on either run. Clean up is simple and straightforward as is assembly and dis-assembly. However, the whole bowl/auger unit wobbles slightly when it is turned on, even before loading any fruits or vegetables into it, not a ton of movement but it is noticeable. Seems like it shouldn’t have any movement, and when i watch the youtube videos of this machine i do not see any wobbling. Did i get a faulty machine?.
The product said any seed so i put in a mango seed(do not try this) and it got jammed so sent it for replacement and the are sending me one. Great juicer though but i thought i could get the mango seed out but i couldn’t.
The seller was very accommodating, and knowledgeable – i found this out after the fact. The manufacturer’s web site had inaccurate information, so i didn’t order the juicer i would have wanted. The seller made up the difference, which i appreciated.
This is an awesome coldpressed masticating juicer. It is pretty quiet for a juicer and very easy clean the parts. Also the tenure warranty is unheard of feature in today’s manufacturing world. I could not be more pleased.
Juicer works well and there is a huge difference between what you can get at the store and what you get out of this machine. It’s tricky to get together correctly in the beginning, but once you know how to do it, it’s really a nice machine.
His response ‘one of the best juicer ever and would recommend it’.
Great deal on a great product. This item arrived on time and was well packaged. After much research i bought this one. I have used it several times and it has performed as anticipated.
Not as good as the horizontal omega. This vertical option is a pain in the neck when it comes to carrots.
Very efficient in carrot juicing and easy to clean.
Juices everything from beets, carrots, apples, parsley to wheatgrass. Extremely easy to cleanpulp is very dry, so you get even more juice every time.
I bought this unit over a month ago and have been using it every day, even twice a day some days. It works great and is easy to clean. It takes 10 minutes to prepare the food, 10 minutes to juice, and 10 minutes to clean, so expect a 1/2 hour of your time using this machine each time. When i clean i also dry the components. I have juiced a lot of fruit & vegetables like, kale, chard, romaine, cabbage, collards, parsley, cucumbers, carrots, celery, apple, oranges, kiwis, pineapple, pears, strawberries, with great success. I am very happy with this machine.
