Rated 4 out of 5Â by luvthejuicer One of the features I really like about this juicer is the low noise level due to mastication. Assembling the parts to make the juice is quite simple as is the cleaning of these parts. The parts seem pretty sturdy and holds up well. I am really enjoying this juicer and will recommend to others. The only caveat, which is minor, is sometimes the detritus of the veggies may get stuck while expelling from the spout, in which case you can use the reverse button for a few seconds and then continue juicing. I would save those stringy veggies like celery for last.

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!

When I purchased the 350-VRT, that was the "best one". At over $400 I got around 1 year of use. Now, all the parts are gungy and require replacing. I was one that would wash the parts IMMEDIATELY after juicing, even before I drank my juice. Also, as soon as I would juice more that 12 oz, the juicer started producing all sorts of large pulp particles. I feel for the price I spent, it was not worth it. Now that I need to replace the parts, I'm half way to a Norwalk juicer. Definitely something to keep in mind before you drop 400+ on one of these. The parts should not cost what they do to replace when they require replacement so quickly

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
