Most people who are into juicing for its health benefits prefer a twin gear masticating juicer as it extracts more juice than a single gear juicer does. In addition, a twin gear masticating juicer improves the taste and quality of the juice to give the user the ultimate satisfaction. However, a twin gear juicer is more expensive than single gear juicer and it is impractical to buy one if the user doesn’t have a lot of time to use it. These are the reasons why most people suggest a single gear juicer than a twin gear one.
A twin gear juice may extract higher yield, but both types of juicers yield the same quality of juice with the same nutritional content. If you are considering buying a single juicer, it would be best if you look into the models that Omega has produced.
The Omega 8006 juicer is one of the best single juicers of Omega because it has the capability to extract a high juice yield – albeit not higher than the two gear juicer – from any vegetable or fruit in a short amount of time. This is possible because the motor has an 80 rpm, making it a cold-press juicer. With this motor speed, the heat transfer and oxidation of the juice will be lessened.
The Omega 8006 is not complicated to set up since the instruction manual is easy to understand. At the same time, the parts can be easily taken apart making it easier for users to clean the machine after using it.
The auger of the model is eight times stronger than an ordinary single juicer which makes it easier for users to extract juice from any types of fruits (apple, mango, orange) and vegetables (celery, spinach, wheatgrass, tomatoes). Users have the freedom to juice soft, hard, pulp, and stringy items with this juicer model.
Another great thing about the Omega 8006 juicer is the built-in reverse button to prevent fruits and vegetables from clogging the machine during the juicing process. In addition, the Omega 8006 juicer barely makes any sound when it operates and it also dispenses the pulp automatically. The only downfall to this model is its 16 lbs weight which makes it harder for users to carry it around the kitchen.
The Omega VRT350HD has basically the same features as the Omega 8006. It also has 80 rpm motor speed and an auger that can slice and dice almost any kinds of vegetables and fruits. However, Omega VRT350HD has far more innovative features than the Omega 8006. This includes features like: Low Speed Technology System (LSTS), Heavy Duty (HD), Dual Stage Juicing, and Automatic Wiping System (AWS),
The LSTS is used for extracting the maximum amount of juice, nutrients, and taste from the small quantity of vegetables, soybeans, fruits, and leafy greens. On the other hand, the Heavy Duty characteristic of the machine makes it more durable than Omega 8006. The added benefit of the AWS is that it makes it easy for users to clean the juicer with the silicone wiping blade that is used for removing excess pulp.
