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.
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.
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.
May you all have a blessed day!
