Omega Slow Juicer Reviews – The NC900HDC

We all know by now that I am an advocate of a plant based diet and I truly enjoy my vegetables and fruits.

At the beginning one of my biggest problems was to convert my children to plants and fruits lovers, and even thou they have always enjoyed biting an apple or eating a fresh banana to eat five or six pieces of fruits or vegetables a day has never been their number one priority.

So I resolved to solution number 2: what if I juice everything? It will be easier for them to have it on a daily basis!

So I went out and bought myself an Omega Slow Juicer NC900HDC  and start to juice everything I found in my kitchen that was a vegetable or a fruit.

Results: big success!

What I would like to do today after reading so many others  is to add my own opinion to the Omega Slow Juicer Reviews

I will say to start that I have had juicers before and different types of blenders as well.

When I first considered buying it before jumping into any new kitchen gadget I took my time.

There is a really big difference on the quality of the nutrients you will extract from any fruit or vegetable and the type of juicer you are using will have a major effect on that quality so I wanted to be sure I was buying the right one

Saying that, many of you must know that ideally a slow juicer is the best option when you are shopping for a new one.

Why Slow Juicers?

The normal Centrifugal Juicers are the most common ones and the least expensive of the juicer extractors but are also the less desirable if you are looking for a type of juice that is full of nutrients and vitamins.

A centrifugal juicer works by pushing the vegetables or fruits part against a rotating disk whose teeth reduce it into pulp. The centrifugal force then throws the plant pulp in a basket screen through which the juice is strained while the pulp remains behind.

So far sounds good right?

The problem is that the centrifugal procedure does not really ground enough finely especially green leafy sort of vegetable and the force produced by the centrifugal juicer is less effective than the slow juicers so that a lot of the healing enzymes and other nutrients present in the fruits or vegetable are kind of left behind.

Don’t’ get me wrong any juicer is better than no juicer but if you are looking for a full of good stuff type of juice then the Slow Masticating juicers are far superior.

 

 

Omega Slow Juicer Review

The juicer NC900HDC is a Low Speed, Masticating Juicer and Nutrition System on its own

There are many places on line where you can find it, I even went on the Omega Main Website but the type I wanted was out of stock so I ended up ordering it from Amazon.

The price: Middle range.  Amazon.com one of the cheapest even though you can find it on Omega Site at the same price ( when available)

It has a Dual Stage masticating extraction, ideal for extracting the maximum amount of nutrients, vitamins, taste and juice from minimum amounts of fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, and wheat grass.

It will juice pretty much anything, I love to spice up things sometimes with a bit of fresh ginger which is quite hard to process but with the Omega 900 I had truly no problem whatsoever .

Beside the technical information that you can get from the juicer I find that some of the pros of the Omega are:

  • Clean really fast and easily, less than 5 minutes
  • The preparation time is short, does not need to dice the fruit into tiny little pieces
  • It offers a guarantee of 15 years
  • The noise made when it is on is very subtle, not noisy at all
  • The juice you get if stored properly has a life of about 3 to 5 days.

To that I will add all the technical info that come from the company itself such as:

  • 80 RPM, single auger
  • 5 adjustable pressure settings
  • Low speed minimizes heat build-up and oxidation
  • Easy cleaning with automatic pulp ejection
  • Powerful 2HP motor generates more torque to process tough ingredients
  • Built-in handle
  • High juice yield saves $ on your grocery bill
  • Quiet operation

One of my favorite things about this juicer is that it can chop and cuts hard and soft produce easily, and you I don’t have to cut the produce into such small pieces.

It has an extra wide feeder tube that gives it a very competitive edge over the other Omega J8006 and and the J8004 and this means it takes less work to make a glass of juice.

 


Expensive? Quality over price …

OK, it is maybe not the cheapest juicer you will find on the market, but if I am honest I bought so many different types thru my lifetime that now with the Omega in the kitchen I wish I would have bought it long time ago.

Sometimes we want to save money and we are trying to spend less and buy cheap stuff but ultimately you end up spending more when you calculate how many cheap ” juicers” you have bought during the years.

And I will repeat it is not just about the juice it is about the quality of what you are drinking afterwards that matter to me the most.

So should you juice or not?

We are all different types of people with different needs and goals in life, some eat meat, some are vegetarian, some are Vegan like me.

Whether you want to embrace a totally different type of lifestyle or are just wetting your feet to the idea of embracing a plant based diet, or vegan diet, I find juicing one of the easiest way to truly feel fast the benefits that you can get from these wonderful plants and vegetables that Nature gives to us every day.

I invite you to try it, or if you are already into it I hope you are spreading the word around of how beneficial this type of life can be.

I am not saying we have perfect health, I am not saying you can cure everything by eating plants and avoiding animal food and drinking juices; what I am saying is that by doing so you can be certain to give your body and, why not, the body of the people that we love all the goodness nature has to offer.

So give it a try. Start juicing today!

May you all have a blessed day!

    I am looking to purchase slow juicers for the past few months for me. The main reason I have been looking for slow juicers is that they do not extract much nutrients and vitamins from the fruits. Omega Slow Juicer sounds like a really good one and also it is cheaper than I thought.  I also love how it offers a 15 years guarantee. I might actually buy this in a few days.

    Thank you so much for sharing this article with us.

    I love the idea that your kids can take more fruits  in a day  without them noticing I  believe that model juicer did the majic for you and I am going  to try it with  my self I am going for it and make all the juices I  can be  able to, so that my kids just like yours will not be missing one bit of nutrients in fruits 

  4. Seun Afotanju says:

    It may not be the cheapest juicer but i guess its worth purchasing instead of buying cheap juicer that will not work to expectations believe me when i say it is cool i used it previously at a resturant i worked for a year and we actually had no complain whatsoever, highly recommended by me to every one who needs a quality juicer.

  5. Claudia says:

    I myself have a family that is weird about fruits and vegetables, they would eat some like the banana, the mango, and the broccoli, and others. When it comes to making juice they really go for that. My question is will my little ones get scare when the juicer is turned on? 

    • admin says:

      Not at all, it does make a little noise but nothing that I would call scary plus you might get your little ones as they grow older involved in helping you chopping and preparing the juices and they  will learn to love them as well!

    Two ‘long life’ aspects stand put for me here. One, the juicer itself has a 15-year guarantee, which is pretty impressive for a kitchen gadget. Second, that the juices created can last for 3 to 5 days. I’ve always been an advocate of paying a little more initially for a good product that lasts, than trying to save money up front and regretting it later. This slow juicer looks well worth the purchase price.

  7. Aweda Olakunle says:

    Never actually thought of making fruit juices but it sounds like a lovely idea because i love fruits especially apples and bananas. It will also be an avenue to consume fruits ike cucumber that i dont like eating. I could just mix them up and make a juice. Will check for the juicer if i can find it around, if not, just order it. Thanks for the insight

  8. Steven says:

    I just love juicing my vegetable and fruits either combined or on their own. Juicing has a great health benefit and it helps you to heal if you are unable to eat them. 

    In one way eating fruits and vegetables is better, because you will also get all the important fibers, but if your body has a problem with digesting fibers, it is an excellent solution to still get enough nutrients into your system. I hope you teach your kids also to eat the fibers with the fruits and vegetables, for they are essential for growth.

    We got a centrifugal juicer at home which can take care of most fruits and vegetables but there certainly times I would have loved to have a slow juicer or masticator. The latter can for example also take banana’s that would become an absolute mess in a juicer or extremely difficult to process hard substances such as almonds for almond butter and the like.

    My biggest concern with juicing is to get a lot of sugars and acidic fruits in me that can cause various problems such as heart-burn or a stomach issues in the long run, so I take it that everything should be taken in considerable and variable amounts? 

    • Barbara S. says:

      To me, everything is nutritious when we are talking about a plant-based type of diet. Of course, something will have to be taken in moderation and the key remains always variety. It surprises me sometimes how many people ask me about how much sugar will there be in all these fruits but then will not think twice about eating a MacDonald. Society has done a very good job of brainwashing us.

    Hi,Just taking some time to thank you for your detailed explanations. About a year ago i bought a juicer and after a few uses promptly returned it. My nearly 20 year old Jack LaLane juicer does a better job. The juicer left big chunks of vegetables and moist pulp. I had to run the fruits and vegetables through twice and still left moist pulp. It was awful Now I know the type of juicer and the exact model I need.

  10. Peter Echeng says:

    Being a veggie is a great goal to achieve. If you tell me to live on plant for a month or two, I’d be like, you don’t like me. But I’d love eating lots of veggies, nuts etc but I find it difficult to hold unto plant and fruits alone. If I may ask, how could I achieve such? Do I really had to become a veggie to live really healthy? What else do I need put in place to tame my normal eating habit?

    • Barbara S. says:

      Changing your diet does not happen overnight unless you really have a firm mindset on to the change. I always advise to take it one day a the time, it is more about your conviction and the reason why you decide to do it will affect the success or failure of the change you intend to do

  11. Amanda says:

    I’ll be honest I’ve tried a vegetarian diet once and it was great really, I did lose weight but for me it wasn’t easy to maintain…I love meat.

    I do love though that this juicer would make great smoothies, and in the keto lifestyle I live now that would be perfect!

    I also agree with you about quality over the quantity of the price, there are some things we can cheap out on but kitchen appliances that will be used often you can’t do that with.  Or you will end up spending more in the end, I learned that the hard way.

    I love the overall look of your website too, the color is great.
