Benefits of Vegetable Juicing
It is very light in weight and you can travel this machine anywhere. Green star juice machines are twin-gear units equipped with advanced features like bioceramic and magnetic technologies for increased extraction efficiency of nutrients. We find that the single auger juicers, do not produce a high yield when juicing carrots, so if you want to juice alot of carrots, this is not the juicer for you. This machine comes with only 2 color. Basically, the produce is pushed with some force into the two gears, which first shreds, and then squeezes the produce.
We feel it is definitely worth it. If money is a major issue then go for Omega instead. Omega is exactly same as Omega except color. Omega is white, is chrome plated. Omega price is same as Omega plus you get 5 year longer warranty and a 8x stronger auger. Omega and are identical save for color white or chrome color they are both a grade up from the which is same as except color and price.
Which one is a better juicer for juicing greens like kale or wheatgrass? If you want to juice mostly leafy greens then Omega would be better. Omega vrthd is recommended for juicing a little of everything, hard veggies, fruits and leafy greens.
Thank you for your quick reply as I am trying to replace mine today! I juice mostly leafy greens and add some fruits for taste. I mostly use apple, pineapple, pear, papaya, and some hard veggies like carrots. Would do the job fine? I am trying to find the happy medium. Omega is perfect for your needs. It looks like a masticating juicer is the better option. Can ALL fruits and veggies be juiced?
Sorry if this is a silly question! All fruits, veggies, greens including Watermelon, Grapefruit, Broccoli can be juiced by a masticating juicer. Cannot tolerate fiber but would like a juicer to extract juice only. Which juicer would you suggest? Hey Gracie Sorry to hear that. Breville Juice Fountain Elite is a centrifugal type of juicer and makes virtually pulp free juice.
Green Star Elite is a twin gear masticating juicer and it makes juice with very little pulp. I want to get a juicer for leafy greens fruits and vegetables. Please recommend the best one available in terms of pricing efficiency and warranty. I would recommend you Green Star Elite juicer. Check out juicer comparison chart to compare price, yield and warranty of juicing machines recommended by us. Sorry for late reply Jennifer.
I was busy with stuff. Both make pulp free juice. Can it be used to make almond milk,also? Yes Omega can make almond nut milk. But almonds must be soaked overnight.
Sorry for late reply Paul, Well it depends upon amount of fiber you like. You can either go with a blender or juicer that make pulpier juice. Vrt is best for people who want to juice times a week. Opt for higher version if you want to juice every day. I was diagnosed with MS this past August an.
I am only 39 and its changed my whole life. I would rather have a clear juice. I am on disability so money is somewhat of an issue but I will save to get what is really needed to try and turn things around for myself.
What do you suggest? Hey Trenda Sorry to hear that. You should look for a masticating juicer, since nutrition is your main concern. I would recommend you a horizontal style masticating juicer. Generally this style juicer can make quarts before the juicer must be stopped, and the pulp must be removed before further juicing can take place. This is not a continuous juicing appliance.
The two centrifugal juicers we sell are the Omega and Omega These machines use stainless steel baskets and ball bearing induction type motors. The Omega offer a 10 year warranty, and the Omega offers a 15 year warranty. This style juicer tends to inject air into the juice so it reduces the nutritional content and oxidizes the juice. The centrifugal ejection style juice is the next juicer we will be explaining. This juicer operates much the same way as the centrifugal juicer above operates, except for the sides of the basket is slanted.
This allows for the basket to be "self-cleaning", so there is no need to stop the juicer and empty it out. The pulp is ejected out of the machine, usually into a collection bin or basket, that can be lined with a plastic bag to collect the pulp, and then easily discarded.
This style juicer is the noisiest of all the juicers. Centrifugal Ejection Wide Feed Chite Juicers Much like the centrifugal ejection juicers, above, except it has the addition of a large feed chute which is 3" in diameter, which allows the user to juice without cutting the produce. There are benefits and drawbacks to the large feed chute.
The units we offer with the large feed chute are: To read more about the advantages and drawbacks of the wide feed units, click here. They are good for juicing most fruits and vegetables. This style juicer creates a less nutritious juice than the slow juicers. The Champion Juicer first grates, then masticates or chews the pulp to further break down the cell-wall structure, and then mechanically presses or squeezes the pulp to extract the juice.
The Champion uses a powerful 1, RPM motor and requires moderate strength to operate. It is definitely not a machine for a physically limited person. It can juice almost every type of vegetable efficiently, including leafy vegetables.
By blocking off the juice spout with the blank or solid plate , the Champion can be used as a homogenizer to make such foods as raw applesauce, tomato sauce and baby food.
It can make peanut butter or other nut butters. It also makes wonderful ice cream-like desserts from raw frozen bananas and other fruits. By assembling the Champion without the blank or juicing screen, it can be used as a grater or to make shave ice.
The Champion's motor is manufactured by General Electric and its juicing parts are constructed of stainless steel and nylon; it has been manufactured since the 's. It is best for juicing most fruits and vegetables. Plastaket also manufacturers a more powerful version of the Champion juicer, its the Champion Commercial model.
The difference is that it has a bit more powerful motor. The look of the machine is the same, as well as all the external parts. Due to the way the Champion juicer works, it tends to oxidize the food more than the slow juicers, below.
The press juice, its a two step process: The Norwalk and Pure Juicer are electric two step juicers that combines grating and pressing operations into one unit, with this machine, the vegetable or fruit is first grated by a revolving cutter into a linen cloth lined tray, which was then placed into a motor-driven hydraulic press.
A good substitution for the Norwalk juicer, would be to use the Champion Juicer as a grater, and then the Welles press , which are operated manually that squeeze the juice out of the produce. This type of juicer juices fruits especially soft ones better than other types of juicers. Single Auger Horizontal Juicers Cold Press Slow Juicer This juicer produces juice by using a single auger that basically crushes the produce into the walls or screen of the juicer, and in the process extracts the juice.
It runs at 80 RPM, so there is little oxidation. The single auger style juicer has been on the market as a dedicated wheatgrass juicer for many, many years now. Just recently, a new design of the machine allows the single auger style machine to juice wheatgrass as well as other vegetables and fruits. There are several brands of single auger juicers. This new single auger machine juices wheatgrass about as well as a dedicated wheatgrass juicer and does an excellent job juicing leafy greens.
It will juice fruits and other vegetables about as well as the twin gear juicers below. We found that this type of machine was not as effective at juicing carrots, as the twin gear units. Fruits and non leafy vegetables need to be cut into small "cubes" for best results when using this juicer.
We find that the single auger juicers, do not produce a high yield when juicing carrots, so if you want to juice alot of carrots, this is not the juicer for you. For best results when using this machine, the hard and soft produce needs to be "alternated" when feeding into the juicer.
Dual Stage Single Horizontal Auger Juicers Cold Press Slow Juicer This juicer works like the single auger style juicer above, but upon the initial crushing of the produce, juice is directed through the stage one juicing screen into the juice cup. The crushed produce continues its way through the machine to the 2nd stage, where there is a finer holed screen to further obtain more juice. With the single stage auger juicers above , the juice is only produced in this second stage.
In our tests, this style juicer produced more juice and worked better than the single auger juicers. There are two brands that sell the dual stage single auger juicers.
Omega offers the and model 10 yr warranty. The Omega models are identical except for the color. The is white, and the is a chrome color. The Omega and are the upgraded versions of the and They include a 15 year warranty, as well as an 8x harder auger. The latest version the dual stage single auger is the Omega NC that is easy to clean and gets a higher yield than previous Omega models.
We found that this type of machine was more effective juicing than the single auger style juicer. This juicer runs at 80rpm. This has several benefits: First, the juicer takes up less counter space.
Second, the juicer is better at juicing a wide variety of produce, such as leafy greens, hard vegetables and fruits. Third, total juicing time takes less time because the juicer can feed itself instead of you having to push produce into the juicer. The Omega VRT 10 year warranty , Omega VRT 10 year warranty Omega VRT 15 year warranty were the first generation of this style machine that has a pulp ejection hole in the bottom of the screen that can have a tendency to clog.
The second generation of this machine eliminated the pulp ejection hole in the bottom of the screen which minimizes clogging and the need to pre-cut produce into smaller pieces so it does not clog this hole. They also run at a lower RPM than the standard vertical single augers. The Slowstar 10 year warranty is the most versatile, most powerful and the lowest cost. The Omega VSJ 15 year warranty comes in a square and round design as well as different colors.
It is a bit easier to clean than the Slowstar juicer, but does not include an attachment to make fruit sorbets and nut butters. Although it is a little easier to clean and produces less pulp in the juice. We prefer the Slowstar overall due to its lower cost and versatility.
