The Omega VRT400HDS has all the top-quality features you come to expect from Omega juicers, yet it has a vertical design in order to increase the speed of production. With a dual-stage juicing process and ultra-strong components, this great-value juicer really focuses on increasing yield. Not only does this save you money, but it also helps you to produce juice which is full of important vitamins and minerals. At the cost of between $420 and $450, if you’re looking for a reliable juicer that can really help you to kick start a healthier lifestyle, you should seriously consider the Omega VRT400HDS.
Most Omega juicers can be easily recognized as they are typically horizontal and have a striking chrome finish. The Omega VRT400HDS however, is a vertical juicer constructed from plastic. Although this is a less durable material, the parts which play a most active role, the auger and the juicing screen, are made from GE-Ultem plastic which is 8 times stronger than other polycarbonates. So, you know that this is going to be a durable, long-lasting juicer.
The Omega VRT400HDS has silver plastic, clear plastic, and black plastic exterior pieces which give an overall contemporary, sleek, and attractive look. All of the parts which come into contact with food are BPA-free so you can rest assured that you will not be suffering from any harmful toxins with this top-quality juicer. Vertical juicers are well known for taking up much less space than horizontal juicers and the Omega VRT400HDS is no exception. It is 25 cm long, 17 cm deep and 40 cm tall, so it’s perfectly easy to fit into almost any kitchen space.
The Omega VRT400HDS great-value juicer is a masticating juicer, meaning that it uses a rotating auger in a confined space to crush ingredients. These are then pressed against a juicing screen which separates the flesh from the juice. This top-quality juicer actually uses a two-stage process which also presses the pulp to make sure every last drop of juice is extracted. This makes it one of the most effective juicers on the market with one of the highest yields. This is also helped by its upright positioning.
The motor used is only 150 watts and the auger rotates at just 80 RPM. This is enough to create a strong enough force to crush tough fruit and vegetables yet is able to do so without transferring heat to them. This is important as it means that the nutrients won’t begin to degrade and the oxidation process will not be forced to start, therefore increasing the shelf life of the resultant juice to an impressive 72 hours. This is great if you don’t want to have to juice every day. Unfortunately, the Omega VRT400HDS is quite specific in its abilities and focuses on juicing only unlike its competitors which are capable of creating a much wider variety of products. This may mean however, that the Omega VRT400HDS is more of an expert machine for juicing.
Ease of Use
Another great thing about having a slowly revolving auger is that it does not create foamy juice, so you can enjoy deliciously smooth juice from this top-quality juicer. The Omega VRT400HDS has been designed to have a spout which is positioned far from the base of the device. This is really handy as although it does not come with a juice pitcher included, you will be able to fit tall jugs beneath it so that you can create enough juice to entertain a large group of people.
This top-quality juicer also has a rare feature called a spout flap which retains liquid within the juicer until you are ready for it to be released. Not only is this handy for time-saving reasons, as you can set the juicer going while you find a container for the juice, but it is also handy for cleaning purposes. The Omega VRT400HDS is one of those rare juicers with self-cleaning functions, that make your life a whole lot easier. It has a silicone wiping blade that clears the juicing screen, not only making room for a more efficient transfer of juice but also helping to clean the device. All you need to do after that is simply add a glass of water into the main container and set a cycle going, which will clear the remaining debris from the machine. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
The chute on the Omega VRT400HDS is, unfortunately, an average size unlike some of its competitors which have extra large chutes. This means that you do still need to prepare the ingredients by chopping them into small pieces before adding them to the juicer. The Omega VRT400HDS comes with a 15-year warranty which is a huge plus as this makes it a reliable long-term addition to your home. Not only will it save you money, but it will also really help you to kickstart your new healthy routine.
