The Omega Vert HD VRT350 Juicer Reviews
Users of this juicer rave about the ultra easy assembly (one claims he did not even need to read the instruction manual to figure out how to set it up). It appears that it is just as easy to use as it is to put together. One reviewer states that all you need to do is drop the fruit or vegetable down the vertical cylinder, and the machine does all the work, grinding up even the hardest of vegetables to produce plenty of juice. The wide top feeder means you do not need to spend time chopping and slices your fruit and vegetables into tiny pieces. According to users, you should be able to juice at least 24 ounces of juice in under 10 minutes (including preparation time). Most users confirm that cleanup is quick, and that the machine is fairly simple to take apart and put back together.
One user complains about the amount of foam that is produced on the top of the juice, although this can be quickly removed with a spoon and does not affect the taste of the juice. Another user recommends taking your time, rather than cramming as much as you can down the cylinder, which can result in the ejection port becoming clogged. A few users complain about this issue, reporting that the ejection port gets clogged so often they are frequently relying on the reverse switch to let them clear the blockage. It does appear that the clogging happens with hard vegetables, such as carrots and celery, which is something to bear in mind if you are a fain of those types of juices. One reviewer recommends using baby carrots, as full sized carrots are likely to clog. A favourite feature of many users is the self cleaning mechanism. Reviewers report that this works really well. A plastic attachment cleans the outside of the screen while you are juicing, leaving it free from fruit particles. One reviewer, a longterm fan of juicing, describes the Omega Vert 350 as “the perfect juicer” and rates it much higher than any of the leading competitors. At a retail price of around $375, it is a significant investment, but one that most users find worth it.
