You may be thinking that a review about a juicer is the last thing I want to read. How on earth can this possibly be interesting? Well, let me help you and out and tell you how. This juicer, namely the Omega 4000, can save you time and money for all of your juice related needs, and it will be another piece of technology for you to brag about to all of your friends. You can tell them in great detail about how “healthy and fit” the juices are making you, so you’d be silly not to read on now….
Ok, you’ve drawn me in. But what does this juicer actually do?
Well, as you can probably imagine, it will help you to make juice. This fact was never going to be shocking to anyone. However, when you look at all of the additional features that this juicer has, that’s when things start to get a little more interesting. It has a 250 watt continuous pulp-ejection-style juicer within its compact, portable size but this is just the start of the features! The 1/3 horsepower induction motor creates 5,200 revolutions per minute, and when combined with the stainless steel blades they will make short work of any fruit or vegetables you throw at it (not literally hopefully!) Also included are a pulp collector and a large feed chute, but I can already tell I’m losing you here so I’ll move on!
And will it make my kitchen look hideous?
I think the nicest way to describe the looks of this machine is unique. You can tell that Omega prioritised the features of this juicer over its aesthetics. It is a machine which would have looked more at home in the seventies or eighties, but that is not to say it is hideous, it is just not in keeping with the stainless steel look of today’s modern kitchens. It measures 15 x 8 x 12.5 inches, so you should be able to find a space for it on your counter top (and in the cupboard when you’ve finished using it!)
So what are its good bits?
The large list of very useful features is what redeems this machine. It shouldn’t matter what you throw at it, it will be able to cope. The large chute means that you can put even the biggest of apples and oranges in without a worry and its plastic coating makes it easy to clean.
And the bad?
When it comes to negative points about the Omega they are hard to come by. Perhaps the biggest problem facing this machine is its stylistic design, but other small issues include the pulp tunnel occasionally getting blocked and it being ever so slightly too noisy!
Should what’s the conclusion?
This juicer has a lot going for it. It is a simple design, it does what it says it will do well, and it will provide you with freshly squeezed juice for years to come if you treat it right. If you are looking for something which will look nice in your kitchen then maybe this isn’t the one for you, but for everything else it may even be a candidate for the best juicer in 2016!
