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 5 out of 5Â by sandvic Great juicer!
I bought this juicer 2 years ago and it works as well as the day I bought. It's a beast. It has juiced everything I've put in it and juiced it well. It's really, really well-made and should last a ling, ling time.
It's easy to clean, easy to take apart and put together. One of the best things I've ever bought for my health! I love it so much I bought one for my son. He lives it just as much.

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 received this juicer from a friend of mine who, as a diabetic, bought it back in May '14 and used it 5 times. She was unable to drink the juice, as it made her glucose level rise too high, so it sat for 18 mos in her basement until now, she gave it to me. I have used it for about a week now, and have had 3 large juicing sessions - producing enough juice for me to have for 6 days (three sessions of juicing for an hour - 2 days worth each time). I am juicing everything from carrots, apples, cucumbers, to lacinato kale, red chard, celery, pomegranate seeds, cherries, cranberries, pineapple (even the core, which I could NOT put through my old centrifugal juicer - Jack LaLane Power Juicer Pro). I am VERY satisfied with the quality of the juice - even after stored for 2 days (in mason jars with the white plastic lids). With my old juicer, juices would spoil within 4 hours, which would prohibit me from taking them to work for lunch at mid-shift. The only thing I do not like about the juicer so far is the amount of pulp in the juice. I remedy that by pouring it through a strainer and problem solved - extra step, but makes it much more palatable for my tastes. I did have to adjust my recipes as this juicer gives me MUCH more yield from my leafy greens than the centrifugal juicer did, so the taste was definitely a little different. Cleaning is easy and I have not had any problems with the pulp ejection or the juicer stopping on me. I cut everything as John Kohler states to cut it up in his videos on YouTube and feed things through differently than my old juicer as well - and it seems to work well. It is an extra step to prep the food, but well worth it to me to be able to make juice ahead for 2-3 days at a time instead of having to clean the juicer every time I wanted a juice - several times per day. Cleaning is easy with just water and the cleaning bush provided in the box. I do wonder if the warranty is still good on this machine for me since I am not the original purchaser and how I go about looking into that - I still have the warranty card that she never filled out and sent in.
