Omega NC800 HDS Nutrition Center Juicer Review

Omega-NC800-HDSThe Omega NC800 HDS is a single auger masticating juicer well known for being extremely efficient at extracting juice from all kinds of fruits and vegetables. It is the most recent model in a long line of Omega juicers. This great modern appliance really sets itself apart from other masticating juicers with its consistent low 80-RPM speed. This really helps with reducing heat build-up and oxidation which is what destroys the nutritional qualities we juice to take advantage of. The state of the art auger system juices produce by forcing the items into the chamber while grinding and pressing the food thereby squeezing the juice from the fruits and vegetables; including wheatgrass and leafy vegetables. With this all inclusive nutrition center you can also make all-natural nut butters, baby food, soy milk, almond milk and a variety of healthy snacks. This appliance includes 6 nozzles and 2 Juicing screens.

This appliance is truly versatile at doing so many different items: fruit juice extractor of soft and hard fruits, even citrus fruits, a vegetable juice extractor including celery, carrots, peppers, radishes, and cabbage without destroying the natural flavour and nutrition, a grass juice extractor of wheatgrasses, aloe leaves and pine tree leaves, a processor/chopper function chops and processes, garlic, scallions, red pepper, ginger, radish and many other foods, including herbs and seasonings, soft foods for babies and geriatric patients are quick and easy to prepare with the processing strainer, included is a pasta maker for making fresh noodles in just minutes with the pasta nozzles, a homogenizer to make fresh frozen desserts, natural baby food, and nut butters and even a grinder to make your own coffee and flour too.

The Juice

Everyone loves juice and this juicer is definitely a model to consider. Its mid-range price and top-quality components will last for years. It’s a wonderful top-of-the-line juicer that produces a much deeper, more vibrantly coloured juice with little to no foam and lots of flavour too. The juice is a decent temperature as well because of the low speed it doesn’t heat up thereby limiting the oxidation process which destroys vitamins, minerals and enzymes. (The juice lasts longer too because of this) It is most efficient at squeezing every last possible drop from everything you put into it. You will be thrilled with how dry the pulp comes out, although personally, I like a little pulp, so I will add some back into the juice. It is reassuring to know that you will be getting the most out of your produce.

This Omega juicer is the latest in a long line of reliable Omega masticating juicers and you will be thrilled with its efficiency. It juices fruits, vegetable, leafy greens and wheatgrass with ease. You will love the delicious drinks created with this juicer. The overall consensus concerning the juice yield from this appliance has been very good; it surpasses that of other juicers that seemingly wastes a lot of produce. This juicer also boasts an adjuster knob at the end of the pulp ejector which controls the flow of the pulp from the juicer. This feature is beneficial when juicing a variety of different items.

Ease of Use

Rest assured this juicer is fabulously easy to use, simple to set up and very quiet too. If you enjoy an early morning juice concoction for the drive to work or for the kids on their way to school this is the best juicer for you. But give yourself some preparation time as masticating juicers take considerably more time to juice than high speed centrifugal juicers. The simplicity of disassembling, reassembling and cleaning this machine is as easy as juicing and the cleaning process is second to none; the total process seems to take about 5 minutes. The chute is a bit larger compared to other similarly styled masticating juicers, so there is less produce preparation required as far as cutting up. Just juice, clean and enjoy; it’s not a great idea to let your juicer sit after using and cleaning immediately sure aids the washing process. The chute is actually one piece which some find awkward, but with practice it’s not a bother at all.

Clean Up

This machine is the exception in the long line of masticating juicers and can truly sell itself on its ease of clean up alone. With its newly improved screen, the clean-up process is quick and easy; nothing like some of the centrifugal juicers in the market. This masticating juicer has a smaller screen which makes for easier removal and cleaning of the pulp with the oversized toothbrush cleaning tool that is provided. The unit may cost a bit more than some other models, but this is a huge selling point for most people looking to get into juicing or upgrading their current model; it takes just a few minutes to disassemble, clean and reassemble making it well worth the extra money. The parts literally need a rinse under warm water and the screen a quick brushing and you are done.

Quality

The Omega NC800 HDS juicer is a high quality multi-use juicer that actually performs its tasks very well. The construction of this juicer is excellent and is backed by an amazing fifteen year warranty on all parts and labour which speaks volumes of the company that manufactures it; and sure helps to ensure owners of years of trouble-free juicing. The single auger design rotates at a low 80 RPM thereby reducing heat and foam reduction, it’s also comparatively stronger and of better quality compared to other augers of other single auger juicers. You will get what you pay for with this juicer and I, like so many others have purchased cheaper items to save a couple of dollars only to be disappointed and end up buying the more expensive item anyway.
