The juicer has a motor that operates at 60 RPM - it creates less foaming, no clogging, or heat build-up, and prevents oxidation. As a result there is almost no oxidation, when compared to centrifugal juicers, which allows for producing juice without losing the natural taste, nutrients, and fiber.
The Omega NC800 has an endcap with 5 settings, that lets you adjust how much juice do you want to extract from the product. For the hard vegetables and leafy greens, the adjustment should be set to 4-5, for soft fruits - 1-2, this way you can get the maximum amount of juice without clogging up the...
The Omega NC800 is great at extracting juice from leafy greens such as spinach, wheatgrass, and kale. While going through the horizontal auger, ingredients are being crushed twice - in the initial crush the juice is extracted through the first mesh screen located at the bottom. The pulp is then pas...
The Omega juicer has a motor that operates at 80 RPM - it squeezes ingredients with minimal oxidation, preserving natural taste & nutrients, which would be lost by high-speed centrifugal juicers that grind, crush, and heat the ingredients due to a fast-rotating blade. The extracted juice can st...
The Omega NC800 can be used for other things too, like making nut butter, grinding coffee beans, making sorbets, and extruding pasta (not making pasta dough!). It can even chop and mince, doubling as a food processor. The tools for this are included with the juicer.
Horizontal juicer requires more space on the counter than a vertical one - the footprint of the NC800 is large at 6.5 x 15.5 x 14.5 inches. It has a built-in handle if you want to move it, but it's not convenient to put it away every time because of its weight of more than 17 lbs.
The SKG juicer has a motor that operates at 60 RPM - it squeezes ingredients with minimal oxidation, preserving natural taste & nutrients, which would be lost by high-speed centrifugal juicers that grind, crush, and heat the ingredients due to fast-rotating blade.
Unfortunately, ingredients that are too hard run the risk of breaking the juicer. The same goes with soft ingredients - the juicer cannot process fruits and vegetables that are too soft, as they are difficult to be squeezed. They are more suitable for smoothies.
