Omega VRT350HD Juicer Vs Omega 8006 Juicer

I. Overview

Omega VRT350HD Juicer Vs Omega 8006 Juicer

Omega boasts of their juicer line that will surely benefit those people who loves to make their own mix of fresh fruit and vegetable juices. The Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer is one of the offerings of the company to its customers. It boasts of great features like minimal heat build up to give the extracted juice a longer life compared to others. The Omega J8006 Nutritional Center Commercial Masticating Juicer is also packed with great features. One of which is the juicer’s ability to extract more amount of juice than normal juicers in the market today. Although both juicers are from Omega, there are also differences in the products specifications and features.

II. Design

When it comes to design and physical appearance, The Omega VRT350HD juicer is taller while the Omega J8006 Juicer is wider. Both come in the colors of black and chrome which will fit perfectly in any kitchen countertops. The incorporation of a chrome overlay in the bodies of these models allow easy clean up and it does not attract stain from the extracted juices too. Both of these units’ feeding tubes are fairly small averaging to approximately 1.3 to 1.5 inches in diameter. This means that most fruits and vegetables will need to be sliced into smaller portions for them to fit into the feeder.

III. Mechanisms

The Omega VRT350 Juicer and the Omega J8006 are both masticating juicers (which is different than triturating juice extractors). Both units make use of GE’s Ultem material which is known to be 8 times stronger than other materials used in augers. The Omega J8006 has a slight edge when it comes to the number of revolutions per minute. Omega J8006 runs at 80 RPM while Omega VRT350HD runs at 70 RPM. Both speeds are still considered low speeds in juicing standards but lower speeds actually help preserve enzymes and vitamins into the juice. Both models also use just a single gear mechanism which is effective in making juice that is less frothy and less foamy.

IV. Specifications

The Omega VRT350HD Vertical Juicer and the Omega J8006 Masticating Juicer already use a new technology called 2- stage juicing mechanism. This new method allows more efficient juicing which results in more juice and dryer pulp. Both models also have an automatic pulp ejection system which allows users to juice continuously without stopping. There are also built-in reverse mechanisms that will prevent blockage. When it comes to the motor, both operate very quietly. The Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Juicer is equipped with a 2 HP motor while the Omega J8006 Masticating Juicer uses 1/3 HP motor.

The Omega VRT350HD juicer also has a juicing screen that is 8x stronger. The Omega J8006 juicer has 6 different caps to thrust pasta shapes. Since both juicers run at relatively low speeds, there is no heat buildup during motor operation. Lesser heat would indicate longer shelf lives for the extracted juices. No heat accumulation would also preserve all the vitamins, minerals and enzymes in the juices since there is not enough heat to kill them in the process.

When it comes to the prices, the Omega VRT350HD Juicer is a little bit more expensive than the omega J8006 Masticating Juicer. The horizontal design of the Omega J8006 might not be a plus especially to those people who have limited spaces in their kitchens. The vertical design of the Omega VRT350HD juicer makes it easier to store and it will fit small spaces too. But the Omega VRT350HD juicer will only be able to juice vegetables, fruits, greens and wheatgrass while the Omega J8006 model will be able to extrude pasta, soy milk, it can make frozen desserts and it can grind, mince and chop baby foods.
