The Omega TWN30R Twin Gear Juicer would be a good choice for well-motivated juicing enthusiasts and people juicing to combat poor health, offering the highest nutrient content from a domestic juicer. Twin gear juicers crush produce between two tightly fitting gears releasing more nutrients into the juice, but they require more time overall. Pushing hard ingredients through the gears requires some effort, as with all Twin Gear models, so we wouldn’t agree with Omega’s claim that the juicer is self-feeding. However, if you are aiming for maximum nutrient content and predominantly interested in vegetable juices, The Omega TWN30R is one of the most efficient machines on the market and it will reward your efforts by saving money in the long run on juicing ingredients.
Making pure fruit juices is not a very practical proposition in this type of juicer, but when added to vegetable based recipes the TWN30R will do a great job if the fruit is fed alternately with the veg. A typical juicing session will take approximately 10-15 minutes longer with this type of machine, including clean up. Compared to cooking a meal that is no great sacrifice when you consider the nutritional benefits of raw cold pressed juice, but we like to properly inform our customers what is involved because we know this type of juicer is not necessarily the best choice for those with a busy lifestyle.
The key strength of a twin gear juicer is extracting nutrients that other juicers find it difficult to process. This is because the triturating action of the closely fitting gears breaks down plant cells more efficiently than other juicing processes. Some nutritional therapists recommend this type of juicer because of the juice quality and it is believed that they offer more nutrients than any other process, unless you go to through the additional process of using a hydraulic juice press.
“For day to day juicing I use my Omega Slow Juicer, but if I was juicing to combat ill health I’d quickly swap to a twin gear model like the TWN30R to maximise the benefits” – Nick, UK Juicers™
