Here's a review from a fellow juicer
Hi,pls i want to start a natural juice making kitchen in my country with fruits like oranges,apple,water lemons,etc. Michael Hession We weighed all produce for accuracy. Omega VSJ Budget pick: Darren John Dunne says: March 29th, at 3: Yep, the Breville is noisy, a little bit like kick starting a motorcycle, but it is super fast.
Let's Begin Your Juicing Escapades...
Omega is upgraded model. The main difference is the 15 year warranty and 8x times stronger Ultem Auger. We feel it is definitely worth it. If money is a major issue then go for Omega instead. Omega is exactly same as Omega except color. Omega is white, is chrome plated. Omega price is same as Omega plus you get 5 year longer warranty and a 8x stronger auger. Omega and are identical save for color white or chrome color they are both a grade up from the which is same as except color and price.
Which one is a better juicer for juicing greens like kale or wheatgrass? If you want to juice mostly leafy greens then Omega would be better. Omega vrthd is recommended for juicing a little of everything, hard veggies, fruits and leafy greens.
Thank you for your quick reply as I am trying to replace mine today! I juice mostly leafy greens and add some fruits for taste. I mostly use apple, pineapple, pear, papaya, and some hard veggies like carrots. Would do the job fine? I am trying to find the happy medium. Omega is perfect for your needs. It looks like a masticating juicer is the better option. Can ALL fruits and veggies be juiced? Sorry if this is a silly question!
All fruits, veggies, greens including Watermelon, Grapefruit, Broccoli can be juiced by a masticating juicer. Cannot tolerate fiber but would like a juicer to extract juice only.
Which juicer would you suggest? Hey Gracie Sorry to hear that. Breville Juice Fountain Elite is a centrifugal type of juicer and makes virtually pulp free juice.
Green Star Elite is a twin gear masticating juicer and it makes juice with very little pulp. I want to get a juicer for leafy greens fruits and vegetables. Please recommend the best one available in terms of pricing efficiency and warranty. I would recommend you Green Star Elite juicer. Check out juicer comparison chart to compare price, yield and warranty of juicing machines recommended by us. Sorry for late reply Jennifer. I was busy with stuff. Both make pulp free juice.
Can it be used to make almond milk,also? Yes Omega can make almond nut milk. But almonds must be soaked overnight. Sorry for late reply Paul, Well it depends upon amount of fiber you like. You can either go with a blender or juicer that make pulpier juice.
Vrt is best for people who want to juice times a week. Opt for higher version if you want to juice every day. I was diagnosed with MS this past August an. I am only 39 and its changed my whole life. I would rather have a clear juice. I am on disability so money is somewhat of an issue but I will save to get what is really needed to try and turn things around for myself.
What do you suggest? Hey Trenda Sorry to hear that. I have not tried the Kuvings Masticating Juicer yet, but it looks like a cute machine. I read the reviews on amazon. The main review that caught mu attention was a 3 star review.
I have the juicer but was watching some videos on juicing but they used a high powered blender and said that was better due to the fact you use everything and where the juicer leaves behind all the pulp. So I bought a commercial blender the Omega one and tried it today with carrots and spinach and apple and it did not do very good in blending anything together … I dont know if I did something wrong but anyway had to take everything out of blender then I put it thru my juicer and got the results I wanted… disappointed about the blender though, maybe that will be better just for fruits.
Would the additiol coast to upgrade to an Omega really be beneficial if I am truly looking for the best juicer for the nutritional value? Appreciate your candid reply thanks, Marty. When you say Omega , do you mean Omega ? I am not sure what the Omega is, it looks like there is an Omega series, but they are blenders.
If you are talking about the Omega masticating juicer, then it definitely provides more nutrition than the Breville JE98XL, or any of the Breville juicers because they are all centrifugal machines. All the same, centrifugal machines still produce nutritious healthy juice, it is just that the masticating machines produce even more nutritious juice, especially when it comes to antioxidants and enzymes.
So if the most nutrition is what you are aiming for then an Omega juicer machine will trump the Breville. However, the triturating juicer machines, such as the Green Power Juicer, produce a little more nutrition than the masticating machines,and produces the most nutritious juices. Ultimately, all types of juicing machines produce health-promoting nutritious juice, but if you want to get into finer detail and maximum nutrition then masticating and triturating machines are the way to go!
My only question is… my kids and I are used to a sweeter juice, so to get them to drink the OJ that I made last night I had to add some honey but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for making it a healthy sweet!
I think there might have been some tart oranges in the bag that I bought!! Again, love this particular site. I know, I know…. Do they get lost with the process from manufacturing and displays on grocers shelves? This process can also add chemicals into the mix. Antioxidants including vitamin C , and enzymes are the most effected by the processing methods.
I am expecting my Super Angel to show up in the mail tomorrow — my first juicer but I went ahead and bit the bullet. My questions to you is — would you agree? You seem to promote the Green Power — any reason why? Kurt — I really like both of them, and you will see that I promote them both on this page, it is just the price range is not realistic for everyone. Hello, I just purchased the juice extractor by ge it is a two speed watt juicer. I am new to this, will this machine do what is needed?
Thanks for your time. Hi Leah, it is not a juice extractor that I have used first hand, but I see a few people on youtube have been using it successfully, so it looks like it does the job!
Any advice on the other Breville juicers? Hi Kim, TO be honest with you, I think the Breville company makes the best centrifugal juicer, and I would definitely by the Breville compact juice fountain rather than the Jack Lalanne Juicer. While my Jack Lalanne juicer has done well, there has been enough people complaining that their motor burns out, not a complaint I have seen with the Breville machines.
In fact I may have to adjust this page to reflect this information. Hi, i currently own a breville centrifugal juicer, that i want to replace with a vitamix blender due to the benefit of getting the pulp. So after reading this interesting article i am confused. If you want the benefit of the pulp and its rich fiber content then you definitely want to go with a vitamix-blender. It had great reviews, comparable to the much pricier Breville. I love the juicer, it puts out a great amount of juice.
Yay for a good price to have really good health benefits! Wondering if you knew how significant the nutrient loss through oxidation is if I juice in the morning and consume it 5 hours later. Which one is better or do you have another reference. Thank you for you help. I would like to buy a centrifugal juice extractor.
Can you give your opinion for these models: If you have another model to suggest,please do. Hi,pls i want to start a natural juice making kitchen in my country with fruits like oranges,apple,water lemons,etc.
What kind of juice extractor should i go based on the durability,speed, less noise and more nutitious juice for my customers. Can the single auger and twin gear machines be used instead of a vitamix, so long as they have the homogenizing function? I have been thinking about getting a vitamix for some time, to make smoothies, nut milks and to blend things more thoroughly than my food processor. Seems like a single auger juicer may be easier to clean than a vitamix.
I think I understand what you mean! Do not buy the Jack Lalane. I have one and the piece that blade screws onto is made of plastic and it broke. We tried to glue it together so I would not have to buy a new one and it worked one more time and now its broke again and it can not be fixed.
Of course there is a 10 year warranty but that is on the motor not the plastic piece that is attached to the motor well, I can buy the part I need because they sell it but the part must be the entire motor. After researching this I found that many many people have had this issue with their Jack Lalane Juicer.
So I have decided not to buy the part and instead find me a better product. Do your research this is a great investment but like any investment it must be researched for a better outcome.. Hey i was thinking about buying the Jack Lallane Powerjuicer. Would it be a complete waste being that the nutrient, antioxidant and enzymes are very low? Should I hold out for a more effective juicer? The Jack LaLanne Power Juicer is a centrifugal style juicer machine as are all the breville juicer machines.
Centrifugal juicer machines still create very nutritious drinks, it is just that masticating juicers and triturating juicers create even more nutritious drinks, especially when it comes to antioxidants. My very first juicer was a Jack LaLanne Juicer, but if I knew then what I know now, then I would hold out for a masticating machine, but all the same I was still enjoying healthy juice with the Jack LaLanne!
What about the Ninja Kitchen System ? I saw it on an infomercial and it seemed to be quite loud but it does total jucing. Blenders also make awesome and healthy drinks, but I am only reviewing juicer machines on this page. I was not aware of the differences in juicers, nor had I even heard of a triturating juicer before.
I have an old school Jack LaLanne Junior and need an upgrade, so your webite has proven quite helpful. I am new to juicing and want to make a purchase. The Green Power Juicer is a high-quality juicing machine. Check out this link to learn more about Juicing vs Blending.
Hello Darren and Veronica, Thank you for taking your time to help other people get educated about juicing. Your website is great. I am very new to this concept and I would like to permanently incorporate juicing into my lifestyle for weigh loss and over-all health. But I have also read of the virtues of wheatgrass and that I should have a machine that handles it, and apparently the Breville does not. How important is wheatgrass in a healthy diet, and how important is it for a machine that can juice wheatgrass?
Also, is there any thoughts that you may have regarding the intense speed of this machine rpm and the warning that high speed creates heat and therefore kills some of the benefits of the juice? Thank you for any thoughts you may have to guide me and many others through this confusing maze. I am glad you brought up these points because they are a source of confusion for those new to juicing or buying their first juice extractor.
The high speed of the Breville Juice Fountain and all centrifugal based juice extractors does create heat that will kill some nutrition. However, juice is so nutritious that even with some nutrients destroyed there is still a plethora of nutrients left over. So the juice created by these machines is still very beneficial, no doubt about it. However, as you stated the Breville and all centrifugal juicers cannot juice wheatgrass, the mechanism used and the speed that they juice at cannot extract the juice from something as thin as wheatgrass.
They can extract some juice from some thicker leaves like that of kale, spinach, etc, but are not so effective at this. These centrifugal machines are best used for solid items like apples, carrots etc. If you want to juice all sorts of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, wheatgrass and even herbs then a masticating or triturating juice extractor is the way to go.
So they do produce more nutritious juice. They are a level up from centrifugal machines. Wheatgrass is not by any means essential to a diet, you can get a wonderful range of antioxidants and other nutrients by juicing a variety of fruits and veggies. Thank you for your quick and informative reply. I am amazed at how many choices there are when it comes to juicers. I can explain in detail the anatomy of the human ear, and the differences between a defense and a , but I am awash in confusion when it comes to the complexities of the juicer market.
You provide a tremendous service for all of us trying to live a healthier lifestyle through juicing. Thank you again for taking your time to provide this service.
I watched a youtube. That fact and your comments have me rethinking my choice for a juicer. Can the masticating and triturating machines deal easily with beets and carrots and ginger and things like that? I would prefer to make an investment in something that would be quiet, easy to clean, and as inclusive of the many varieties of fruits and vegetables as possible. Any suggestions would be helpful.
Yep, the Breville is noisy, a little bit like kick starting a motorcycle, but it is super fast. It is a great way to wake the kids up. It is a great machine, and uses magnets and ionizing technology to bring more alkalinity to the juice, which reduces oxidation and increases the shelf-life of the juice. While this and other triturating machines juice beets, carrots, and ginger effectively, producing higher juice yields and nutritional value than both masticating and centrifugal juicer machines, it is harder work to use the triturating machines.
You need to use a bit of muscle to push the tougher vegetables into the twin gears, a little less force is needed for masticating juicers, and less still for centrifugal machines. The Green power Kempo comes with a fruit attachment, for juicing softer fruits, which it does fine. You can also make nut butters, baby food, healthy sorbets and pasta with it too. So it does juice the greatest range of fruits and vegetables, including the thin stuff like wheatgrass and even herbs.
The noise level is considerably less than that of the centrifugal machines. I also find the triturating machines easier to clean than the centrifugal machines since there are no serrated edges. The metal filter baskets in centrifugal machines also need a bit of a scrub. Triturating machines wash down easier. I just want to thank you again for all your help with my education about juicers.
I decided to buy the Omega VRT, and used it for the first time tonight. It worked very well. My only hope now is to get used to the taste of the juice. Yes, I am a grown man, and yes, I did use the word yuck. But I will continue to try different combinations until I find some that I like.
I suppose juicing a jelly donut kind of defeats the purpose right? Anyway, thanks again for your help. You guys rock like a beet! I really like those top-loading masticating juicers. Glad you like it. Wow, what a well done page—loved the you tube feeds also. I feel ready to make the plunge now. I have a Juiceman, and love the juice. I love the quiet of the slow speed, love how much more juice you get etc. My Juiceman is a very good little machine, it was a fair price and seems pretty solid.
I saw on one you tube that I can make muffins and crackers…Not sure I want to open up that old addiction. Could you guys start a pulp page??? Hi, I was just reading through the recommendations on juicers, and honestly this is the best juicing website I have come across.
My boyfriend and I are looking into getting our first juicer, slowly making the transition into eating organics,ect. He seems pretty set on getting a Jack Lalanne juicer saw the infomercial will this work well as a starting out juicer? After reading the reviews I really wanted a masticating one, but it is a little out of the price range.
Hello, I am also considering the Jay Kornich juicer. Has anyone had any experience with this product? Hello,not used to juicing but decided since it helps me consume more fruits than I can chew. Where can I buy the best juice extractor that can juice cane sugar as well. Are these Juicers mentioned available here in Nigeria since i have not seen them around? The ones I saw were different.
