Great product just hard to keep it up everyday. I know it good for you just a little bit of a mess.
Faster than i thought it would be. Only 2 cons are 1) having to cut up stringy veggies to avoid clogs 2) clean up of 6 pieces plus the base does take 20 minutes. But with a masticating juicer, the juice is still nutrient packed for 3 days, so i make enough for 3 days every time i juice. Update, 6 weeks later: i have stopped using. With all the prep time + juicing + clean up = too much for me. I have switched to blender, and make only 1 or 2 servings. Much quicker + u get the all the fiber with the produce.
This is a fast,easy to clean,and quiet juicer. I had a horizontal juicer that slowed down when putting carrots in but not this omega. I’m seeing pulp but not a problem. Just strain it with a strainer.
Great company to work with answered all my questions fast.
This is a solidly built machine that leaves very dry pulp in dump bin, however there is entirely too much pulp in the juice, it is practically the consistency of a smoothie. Also, and this is probably just a problem for me (elderly, disabled widow) the housing base is extremely heavy and due to the fact i have limited counter space it can’t live there so, has to be picked up and placed there each time for use. Cleaning is not a deal breaker but prepping vegs and fruit is time consuming since the hopper opening is tiny. Great machine for the job if you are young and strong and enjoy slicing product for juicing. I will be returning this item and i am hoping that will go smoothly. Update: the ups man picked up the package today (03/22/16) and they say i get my total refund within 2-5 days after they get the product back, which should be by the end of this week. Machine received (3/25/16) and refund already in bank. Thank you for a painless return. I will continue to shop here knowing that i can shop/return with confidence. Also, prime is a lifesaver, thanks again.
My wife bought this juicer and loves it. She had a jackolane and this thing blows it out of the water. It is very quiet and easy to clean. She juices everyday and this thing kicks butt. You get what you pay for with these things.
- Quiet, lots of juice, easy to clean, tough juicing greens
- Buy something you will use!
- It is very quiet and easy to clean
Top cover flexes a little when juicing harder items.
Great slow spin juicer with fantastic customer support. It’s small enough to take with me when i travel. There is a bit of pulp in the juice as some reviewers have said but most juicers (except the norwalk juicer) contain some pulp without doing a 2nd strain of the juice.
Met all of our needs, we love it.
I purchased this juicer from another website and received it today. I couldn’t wait to use it and i am not disappointed. It is quiet when working and more of a space saver than my other juicer. I have a jack lalanne and it is a very good juicer, but i read that a masticating juicer saves more nutrients than a juicer with blades. Compared to my other juicer, this vrt juicer leaves less waste than the lalanne juicer which tells me i’m getting a lot more juice. With fruits and vegetables getting more expensive, i know i will save money. This juicer also has a 10 year warranty since i purchased it new. Cleanup is a breeze as long as you clean as soon as you juice. I don’t think i will go back to a juicer with blades.
I was very pleased with the glass bottles i have not had any problems with them i use them for my juices they are the perfect size highly recommend them to anyone.

My purchase of the breville compact juicer for $99i purchased this juicer as i was new to juicing and wanted something that was quick and easy to use, as well as having a small footprint on my counter. For the most part, i like this juicer, however, my one and only dislike is the pulp container. I like to run my pulp through the juicer to extract even more juice, and collecting the pulp from this unit is cumbersome and messy, and if fills rather quickly. I prefer to have the pulp ejected from the machine which makes for easier collection and cleaning. I’m still torn between the centrifugal and masticating juicers, so i ended up purchasing the omega vrt330s. I have yet to use it and will update this post once i compare the quality of juice as well as the clean up effort. I will say that i’m not looking forward to dicing all of my fruit as i’ve gotten used to inserting entire beets, apples, lemons and limes in my juicer. Even if you’re new to juicing and have already committed to it mentally, i would suggest you definitely take some time to look around. Sometimes it pays to pay more for a better machine that has the additional features and functions that you’re looking for. My review of the omega 330s juicer after using itafter using the omega juicer, i noticed off the bat the quality of the juice.
I really like it so far, making a lot of juice.
Sometimes hard veggies get stuck in it. Lots of pieces to clean after each use.
This was the second juicer we have bought. We really love this one more than the first one. Masticating juicers are so much better.
I purchased this one in advanced of our apple harvest. While i can a lot of the apples in different forms (applesauce, pie filling, chutney), also dehydrating them, i still have plenty for juice. This separates the pulp very well and produces a delicious apple cider, one can let ferment or can, if not drinking fresh.
Single auger turns at a low 80 RPMs to retain nutrients.
First off, i had trouble getting this juicer to turn on. Thought i followed instructions lining up red dots. The hopper can be assembled with arrow lining up with the dot, which was wrong. Called omega customer service and they quickly steered me right in getting the arrows lined up on the rear so it would run. Ok, just getting started on day one and i put it side by side with my trusty jack l. ‘pro’ juicer (not the amateur model 🙂 i started using 2 apples and one carrot in each machine of similar size. Both yielded 8 ounces of juice but the jack l’s juice looked watery. Richer, more froth and flavor.
The only thing i can say is that it was everything i expected and more.
After omega 8006 had cracked after used one week. I wanted to avoid omega if possible because my bitter experience of 8006. But i returned 8006 and they refunded it, it was good. So after carefully compered, i decided to buy this virtical juicer. I’m using this about half month, so far no crack at all. But when i put wheatgrass without cutting, it clogs. And cleaning task is little harder than 8006. But i tried to cut wheatgrass before shoot them. After i opened the cover i didn’t notice cloged grass. But when you make wheatgrass juice , you’ll get little pulpy juice. At this point 8006 was better and more cleaner, but it’s okay, i don’t care little pulps. If you make another vegee juice such as kale, carrot, cabbage, grape, apple ,etc. Carrot is honor role student of vegees. It makes no clog and is crashed very easy. Wrap this up, this juicer works okay, but if you make wheatgrass juice, you should cut them small pieces before you put them in.
Warning this is long, but if your buying a juicer you need to read this. Remember, the best juicer is the juicer you will usei purchased this juicer from amazon warehouse originally and was sent the wrong product. So i had to switch the juicer for one from amazon. When i got the juicer it was packaged nicely and simply put together. It was a puzzle not hard at all like the other reviews have mentioned. I’m impressed with how much juice is expels and the discharge is very dry. Very impressed with that aspect.It does soft and hard foods well.
Quiet, efficient and makes great juice. Has a little bit of pulp which i like better than pure juice.
Hi so i just bought and started using my juicer yesterday, as such this review may be a bit premature. So far i realllllllllyyyyy love this juicer. I have had a hamilton juicer for a few years and mine finally just stopped working. But before it did i was already searching for another one that yielded more juice. This omega juicer is: fast, easy to use, and surprisingly very easy to clean. Pulp seems pretty dry in comparison and it makes soooo much juice. I never thought that i would actually break down and pay so much more for a juicer, but i think in the long run it will save me money on my produce. I am very happy with this juicer and will update later if that should in anyway change.
The two stage juicer system extracts the most juice out of your fruits and vegetables.
Great juicer and it takes 10 minutes to clean it up. No spills during the juicing process. The fresh juice is not heavy and contains no physical pulps from the veggies or fruits. Thanks to an good old friend’s recommendation who is a rare food eater and uses it on the daily base.
Bought for this juicer for a newbie juicing friend and she can’t get enough. Easy to use and clean, and the yield is great.
It’s great at juicing a lot of things but greens are the toughest because they get stuck in the area where the pulp comes out. I think the reason they made a newer version of this was for a stronger powered motor?. But now i try to do my greens last and cut them really small because i don’t enjoy a lot of pulp in my drinks unless it’s oj. Still, i get way more juice than in a centrifugal juicer, it’s quieter, takes up less space on my counter so it stays in plain sight (and is used more often).
Easy to use and does a great job.
You get slot of juice with little produce.
Great product; however, it required more time to process leafy vegetables.
I really like this juicer, however, it takes a little getting used to. The first basket cracked in three places, because the chunks of vegies were too large, i think. I called the company and they said they would replace the basket if i sent pictures showing the breakage. I did so, but have not received the replacement. In the meantime, i can still use the cracked basket and am cutting the pieces much smaller. It is very true that the juice tastes much fresher because you are ‘squeezing’ the juice out at a low speed, not grinding it out at a very high speed. I highly recommend this juicer, just be careful about the size of the veggie pieces you feed into it.
Auto-Cleaning System. Easy to Use. Easy to clean.
Well made juicer that lives up to the reviews. It does an excellent job of extracting the juice from fruit and vegetables, but like all juicers, it’s a pain to clean after use. So i recommend you do your juicing to last several weeks and freeze that which you aren’t going to use immediately. This is also the brand preferred by dr bergman (see his youtube videos).
I bought this juicer locally in 2012 because my wife was having severe health issues where she needed to get most of her nutrition in juices. Because of this, we were putting great quantities of veggies through this juicer every week, and it wasn’t just a short fad thing; to this day i continue preparing juices for her. In the past two years i have run hundreds of pounds of vegetables through it, with no problems whatsoever. This is one of those cases where you get exactly what you pay for: the price is in line with the quality. Before this one, we used the jack lalanne centrifugal model, but it was clear that it wasn’t going to handle the amount of juicing we were doing. The omega is quiet: you can have a conversation with someone while you are running the machine, something that cannot be said about centrifugal juicers.
Easy to use, squeezes all juice out so little waste, easy clean up. The juice comes out ready to drink and is always good.
