A friend has this juicer and really enjoys its ease of use and high quality juice. Check it out!
This is what she had to say about it.
Having been Juicing for almost a year now and recently purchased my second juicer, I just must express why it’s so great! The first juicer was a centrifugal juicer, which was fast and very noisy. It actually sounded like a jet engine on the countertop, which in the morning one just may not be quite ready to rock, this is very annoying. It had more clean up because it dripped and splattered increasingly the more it was used. It shredded the produce, which destroys the cell and enzyme structure, and oxidizes the juice quickly as I later learned. It would not juice leafy greens and herbs well at all. Eventually, it was sometimes avoided.
On to the Vert… looking for a juicer that would preserve the nutrient integrity I found the Omega Vert 350 HD (must get an HD – Heavy Duty) was a “slow juicer”, which refers to the low RPM rate, not the juicing rate. It’s much quieter, a bit easier to clean and turns out juices that don’t separate and oxidize quickly. It seems to do a better job juicing, producing a higher yield juice from the fruits and veges. It juices wheatgrass and leafy herbs and edible flowers well. Make nut and seed milks, and frozen fruit sorbets. You can cut the produce as it is juicing, not the fast, furious and loud event of the centrifugal juicers. It also has a 10 year warranty, what’s not to love? It’s a little more expensive but when one considers the quality of the juice, which is what it’s all about, it’s well worth it, IMHO.
