The Omega Vert 350 had missing alignment dots as well as numerous identical alignment arrows. To complete assembly the tester was required call the customer service line.

The Omega 8006 assembly was moderately simple when following package directions.

Produce Prep and Feeding:

The Krups required minimal produce prep but was loud and pulp was wet with large pieces. Pulp collection was built into the unit.

The Greenstar had a small feed tube and required the produce to be almost chopped to fit (the tester had to cut an apple into 24 pieces).

The Breville was the loudest of the juicers tested but required minimal prep and was not very messy.

The Omega Vert 350 required varying amounts of prep depending on the produce to be juiced (grape seeds must be removed prior to juicing). It was the messiest of the juicers (leakage and weak juice stream that was at times hard to capture). The unit jammed repeatedly.

The Champion Juicer required minimal produce prep and was the quietest. There was some juice leakage from the screen during juicing.

The Omega 8006 ran quietly but required cutting/tearing the produce into smaller pieces to fit into the feeder tube. Feeding solid produce took effort/force.


The Krups had numerous basket parts that took organization to clean and reassemble.

The Breville was easy to assemble and cleaning was easy but had to be done carefully because of some sharp parts.

The Greenstar required a bristle brush to clean the augers and interlocking parts. Reassembly took some practice to in order to mesh the augers properly.

The Omega Vert 350 was challenging to clean due to difficulty removing pulp around the auger, basket and rubber gasket.

The Champion Juicer had few parts to clean; making it simple to clean and reassemble.

The Omega 8006 was relatively easy to clean and reassemble.Order Now!

Nutrition is Essential

The benefits of good nutrition are innumerable. Besides helping you maintain a healthy weight, good nutrition is essential for the body and all its systems to function optimally for a lifetime. In fact, the benefits of good nutrition can be found in physical and mental health because a healthy diet provides energy, promotes good sleep, and gives the body what it needs to stay healthy.

Why Fresh Juice:

1)     By taking fiber out of the equation, your digestive system doesn’t have to work as hard to break down the food and absorb the nutrients. In fact, it makes the nutrients more readily available to the body in much larger quantities than if you were to eat the fruits and vegetables whole
2)     Many of us eat the same vegetables and fruits every day, or worse, don't eat any on a regular basis. With juicing, you can enjoy a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that you don't enjoy eating whole
3)     Juicing is a great way to consume the recommended daily serving of essential vitamins and minerals


Using the Right Equipment

Blenders and juicers are electrical appliances that are found in many household kitchens. It is important for consumers to know the difference between blenders and juicers. A consumer may only be interested in creating tasty smoothies or juices, but the distinction between a juicer and a blender is important when a person is trying to optimize healthy nutrition. Juicing is a process which extracts water and nutrients from produce and discards the indigestible fiber versus blending which literally blends all the ingredients together. Juicers are excellent for health conscious people because they allow them to create juices that have not been contaminated with chemicals and additives.

Get the most benefit from your juicer

Consumers interested in good health should invest in a good-quality juicer. Centrifugal or auger juicers introduce heat and oxygen and destroy the enzymes and nutrients in your fruits and vegetables. A premium mastication or cold-press juicer will produce a superior-quality juice and allow you to extract more from your fruit and vegetables to optimize nutrition.

The Champion Juicer

The Champion Juicer is a true masticating juicer due to the high rotational speed of the cutter, the grinding action of the saw tooth blades, and the longer processing time. The difference between a centrifugal juicer and a masticating juicer is like night and day. Masticating juicers do not produce as much heat as centrifugal juicers so they keep more of the fresh ingredients and nutrients intact.  Masticating juicers also extract more essential vitamins such as vitamin A to help eyes, skin and bone and vitamin C needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.
