Up until a few years ago selecting a juicer that does a good job with green vegetables used to mean making a commitment to spending more time juicing, because many greens capable juicers took a bit longer to use and clean. With the advent of vertical slow juicers like the Omega Vert, even greens juicing became quick and efficient and that factor alone has led to this type of juicer becoming one of the most popular masticating juicers available. Its called a slow juicer because of the nutrient friendly low RPM cold-pressing action, but the size of the juicing auger and the large juice filter mean that for every turn of the motor, much more juice is squeezed than by traditional horizontal slow juicers that can juice greens – so juicing is fast and painless.
Performance is the same in terms of overall juice yield as the VRT350HD, because the auger is identical and so is the juicing screen except for a colour change from translucent yellow to smoke colour. Assembly is easier because instead of twisting and locking onto the motor body, the juicing parts on the Omega VRT400HDS now simply push vertically down into place. There is a juice valve that allows mixing of the juice before dispensing and eliminates drips onto your kitchen counter when you finish juicing. The main advantage of the juice valve is that at clean up time it means the juicer can be filled with some cleaning water and then operated . This allows the silicone wiper blades to do most of the clean up before you disassemble the juicer. There is also a sieve that sits in the top of the juice collecting jug for people who prefer less pulp in their juice.
Please note, the UK voltage model is also known as the Omega VRT402 with the ‘2’ denoting the different voltage motor – it is exactly the same juicer in all other respects.
