I really like this juicer. The juice tastes great. You have to cut the veggies up, which is a little time consuming, but not too bad. Cleaning the juicer is a little time consuming. It would be nice if the components were dishwasher safe. Cleaning is made easier by the brush that is included. It would be nice if recipes and use tips were included, only an instruction manual is included that shows how to put the juicer together.
I have not had a slow juicer before, so I cannot review this juicer to others like it. I looked online for reviews and the omega vert was one of the ones that was well reviewed. It is expensive.. I have a cheap juicer that is very difficult to clean. I have read that that a slow juicer makes healthier juice.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Tanya183 Difficult to put back together
Just bought my first juicer as am told masticating better than centrifugal. It got clogged up on first usage, and the main bowl bit kept moving off the motor, requiring me to hold it in place at the same time as holding the button pressed. Also it's a total faff putting it together. I've just taken about an HOUR to make some juice and clear up the mess. Now have dismantled for washing. And I just can't put it back together again. Is it just me? Â£280 down, and I don't feel like going through it all again tomorrow morning. I can see this just sitting gathering dust...

I'm going on my 2nd year with this juicer and it is a workhorse. It processes food quickly and efficiently. I use lots of carrots, cabbage, kale, beets, ginger, lemon, and lettuce. It takes no time at all to clean. The only two things I can say that may be worth thinking about when choosing models is when using leafy stuff like spinach and Kale, the fibrous strands sometimes stick in the exit chute. This can be resolved by cutting the greens cross wise to keep the strands from getting too long (alleviates problem). Also, the screen broke on me, but Omega sent me one in the mail. Customer service is great!

I spent a lot of time and research before purchasing the VRT 350
Talked to friends with high speed juicers and low speed juicers
Looked online and decided to go with the VRT 350
Very happy with results. I learned over time the best way to feed the veggies and fruits into the hopper so as to not jam the machine
Any machine will jam if you force feed it
I cut all items into small peices and drop in one at a time
Leafy items are followed by juicy items like cukes and tomatoes to keep the screen lubricated and the machine extracting the pulp
Carrots are an excellent item to put in to clean out the machine in between leafy items as well
