I like /u/mas_o_menos have an Omega. Mine is the NC800 but they are almost identical and both amazing machines. I highly recommend it for a few reasons.

  • I use to have a Champion juicer. It was really good but didn't do green leafy as good and couldn't do wheat grass at all. I also found it hard to clean myself.
  • Omega as you can imagine is easy to clean. You literally just rinse off 5 components - 7 if you include the bowls then lightly scrub 1 with a brush that comes with the machine. Super easy and just a couple of minutes.
  • My inspiration was Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I suggest watching it if you haven't. Anyways that guy that did it is Joe Cross and he has the Mean Green which is the basis for most my juices.
  • My typical juice is 1 bundle of Kale, 2 bundles of celery, 2-4 cucumbers depending on size, ginger to taste, lime, 2-4 green apples. (I like to add Orange to mine because I hate veggies, red apple is another option or pineapple).
  • on a juice fast I suggest finding a good veggie broth for dinner. We added a sweet potato and I swear, it tasted just like potato soup (even though it was a sweet potato). Anyways it's nice to have a hot "dinner".

    Best of luck!

People seem to like this juicer over on Amazon. Some reviewers recommend saving up for a more expensive one, and I would tend to agree (if at all possible), but that one seems like it would do the job just fine.

Apparently, it's best to drink your juice soon after making it in order to get the most nutritional benefit, and this is especially the case with centrifugal juicers (the kind you're considering). They run at higher speeds than masticating juicers, thus producing more heat and oxidation, which reduces the nutrient quality of the juice. I think I've heard that with centrifugal juicers, you should drink the juice within a day of making it, but ideally right away. Juice from masticating juicers can be stored for a few days. Either way, it's best to store it in the fridge in airtight containers, if possible.

Also, I would not recommend juicing bananas. They just turn to mush and produce hardly any juice. I've also found that berries, to a lesser extent, tend to do this. I avoid juicing them since they're so expensive and so much of them is wasted in the juicing process. Everything else on your list looks perfect for juicing though :)

Edit: Forgot to mention that when juicing leafy greens like kale and spinach with a centrifugal juicer, you should make them as compact as possible. I also know that some people wrap them around carrots, so you could try that. Good luck!

My first juicer:

Breville 800JEXL

But the high speed really oxidizes the juice and doesn't extract as much. Great if you want to juice 100 apples or 20 heads of celery quickly. But for quality, it leaves a lot to be desired.

My second juicer:

Omega J8006

Worked well for me for a number of years, but didn't handle some greens very well. After following Lou Corona and making his lemon ginger blast every day, I upgraded one more time.

My *last* juicer:

Tribest GSE-5050 "Green Star Elite"

I find it makes the best juice, especially for greens (parsley, cilantro, kale, spinach, chard, etc). It's not great if you're only trying to juice, say, apples or oranges. For citrus, I used a $70 citrus press. For apples, I will use the Green Star but the apples should be pretty crisp and I may help move things along with a stalk of celery.

Yeah, it's pricey, but if you're serious about your juice and will make it a life-long habit, then it will be a good investment.

Lou Corona's Lemon Ginger Blast

  • 1 lemon
  • 1-3" ginger
  • 1-3" turmeric
  • 1/2 to 1 habanero (or omit and sprinkle in a quality cayenne powder to the final drink)
  • 1 apple (use green (granny smith) if you're fighting candida)
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 head celery
  • 1 bunch parsley (helps clean the blood)
  • 1 bunch cilantro (helps remove heavy metals)
  • 1 bunch mint (essential oils, good for digestion)
  • WATER: cut final mixture with 1/3 water; helps the body absorb the rest

    The original lemon ginger blast can be made in a blender if that's all you have:

  • 1 lemon
  • 1 to 3" ginger
  • 1 habanero (or omit and add quality cayenne powder to the final drink)
  • about 3 cups quality water

    .. then blend all ingredients in a Vitamix, strain and drink.

> What helps greatly in this is the juicer you are using. A masticating juicer will get more yield than a centrifugal juicer especially when it comes to leafy greens - which is what you want in your daily juices - kale, chard, spinach. You can also look them up on WolframAlpha individually to get a good look at what each is estimated to contain. You can use fillers such as celery and cucumber. But most folks base their juices from carrots, apples. I enjoy using peppers (sweet peppers, bell peppers) as they produce a nice yield, second are beets. Try and stick with more greens and less fruits.

Unfortunately the juicer that I bought (Breville BJE510XL), is in fact a centrifugal juicer, not a masticating juicer. After doing some research, I realize that this was a poor decision and will return this one and go for a masticating one. Right now I am looking at the Omega J8005, which is #3 on the page recommended in this subreddits sidebar. I am also looking at the juicer that you are currently using Omega VRT330. Besides one being vertical and the other horizontal, I can't seem to find the pros and cons of each one. Reviews wise, the J8005 wins with a 4.5 Star Average (239 reviews) while the VRT330 has 4 Star Average (76 reviews). Price wise, the J8005 also wins @ $252.43 while the VRT330 is $314.99. What are your thoughts on the benefits of each and why the VRT330 is more expensive than the J8005?

u/iowasam · 1 pointr/Juicing

I had a centrifugal juicer before and just a few days ago bought a masticating one (like this but a european imitation) and that's probably the best purchase of my life... it extracts the juice of leafy vegetables really well. So I would say that's your best bet yes.

u/smokeysteve · 2 pointsr/Juicing

this is the juicer i have bought.

i am very new to the juicing thing. dont know too much about it. watched that juicing documentary where the guy does a 60 day juice fast.
thought i would implement the juicer into my diet first. make a load of the recipes ive seen. and probably make a few myself and then go on a 15 day juice fast, then if i decide to go further who knows maybe 60 days... only time will tell.
im a kind of all or nothing person.
dont know if i will be able to not have weed during the experiance who knows... but friends said they would give me weed leafs to juice too, extremely good for you! have a look into it if your interested. its basically using the plant as a vegtable.
i have an vaporising cig thing too that i will use so no smoking at all during the process. although quiting weed for the process would be great. i do smoke far too much of it.

u/whitewhitewine · 2 pointsr/Juicing

I have a probably unpopular view, but I have a centrifugal juicer and find that if I make juice then refrigerate it for 24 - 36 hours, it's fine. If it is unrefrigerated for any period of time, it starts to taste weird/gross. I know everyone says the nutrients dissipate or whatever after juicing, and oxidation is a problem, but I can only judge on taste (since I can't see the nutrients) and it's been fine for me.

I use these glass bottles ($29.99 on Amazon for 6 bottles) and then I usually put a bottle coozy (kind of like these) around the outside. It doesn't fit the cylidrical bottles perfectly, but it keeps them cooler than a plain glass bottle. I also recently bought this bag which I started using to transport my bottles at work, since I don't always have easy access to the fridge. I find that keeping them cool, in full containers and as air tight as possible means that they will EASILY last a day just fine.

u/CeilingRepairman6872 · 2 pointsr/Juicing

A bit of ginger, like 1/2", works well in beet juice, which you can also add kale to. The burning sensation is okay and many people also make 'ginger shots' which are usually a lemon and ~1/2" of ginger. I forget why, but ginger is good for you.

This is a fantastic book that has a lot of good recipes and a section that describes the health benefits of different ingredients.

u/D3FSE · 3 pointsr/Juicing

Don't make juice for more than 24 hours in advance, it will go bad because it loses nutrients. Why is this?

**Once you blend or juice your produce it start to lose its nutrients pretty fast due to oxidation. Juice citrus with whatever you juicing to preserve it. Store it in a mason jar and fill it all the way to the top if your going to drink it later.*

Make sure that you have at least 2 speeds for your juicer. Some fruits will get blended to all hell and you won't get the juice you need. Is this true?

I can't really comment on a blender because I have a shitty one. I would recommend if you have to money to get a Vitamix, I heard great things about it.

Hand wash your juicer. But how often?
I hand wash it every time I juice, I don't know if I can put it in the dishwasher though. Its super easy and doesn't take that long to rinse it out and wash it in the sink. I would probably let it soak in the sink with a little bit of bleach if your using it every day probably once every three months.

A blender might be best for fruits. Is this true?

I don't really think so, your going to be getting a lot of fiber with blending though

Also, what kind of a juicer should I get? I was thinking it would be best to try a cheap one from a place like Target first. If I enjoy juicing, then I'll invest into a better one.

If your going to go cheap get this one

If you have the money get this one

The Breville's are high speed blenders and will create a lot of foam, but it will juice produce really fast. It also wont get most of the juice out of leafy greens.

The Omega is a slow juicer. You're going to have to spend some time cutting your produce in smaller pieces.

If you want to see both juicers in action check out this channel

Can you guys help me out? I've been searching this subreddit for awhile. Also, this is my first post. So, sorry for the formatting and possible grammer/spelling issues.
I would also recommend to strain your juice when your done, it makes a world of a difference. Also check out for ideas to add more produce in your life.**

u/allthegoo · 2 pointsr/Juicing

Go buy Joe Cross's book, Reboot With Joe ( as it will have all the resources you need. I've done a 48 day and a 15 day and found it to be the best source of info and recipes.

As for calories, you will eat fewer calories which is what helps you lose weight. The secret is to drink as much juice as you can, 6 to 7 servings a day, and you'll be fine. Sweet fruit (as opposed to non sweet fruit like cucumbers) should be as limited as palatable. The goal is to drink green plants as much as you can, using the other juices to keep your motivation up and give you some other vitamins. Drinking a rainbow is a common juicing phrase, have a green juice, then a red one, another green, then a yellow, another green and then an orange. By doing this and by rotating your greens between the different green plant families you'll do fine.

u/SpiderHippy · 2 pointsr/Juicing

I'll echo /u/fuelvolts: a blender is not what you want. I bought this juicer in 2013 and have zero regrets. It still works great, is easy to clean, and does a terrific job. You'll want to run the plup through a couple of times to extract all the juice though).

EDIT: If the price seems high: You get what you pay for. A juicer is an investment, and powerful motors cost more. It's worth the extra cost for the longevity and durability.

u/drdisco · 1 pointr/Juicing

I love mine. Great for greens, and clean up is a snap (although I don't really have basis for comparison given that I've never used the centrifugal variety). Also, it's pretty quiet.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Juicing

Omega J8003 Nutrition Center Single-Gear Commercial Masticating Juicer, White $300 on sale for $179.95 today on amazon.

Before cleaning run a few cups of warm water though it and turn it on. It will clean up easy. Welcome to juicing :)

u/jeremy3am · 2 pointsr/Juicing

We love our Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-watt juice extractor ($299 on Amazon). We've used it 3-4 times per week for the last 3 years and have never had a problem with it. Cleanup is super easy.

u/notpandora · 1 pointr/Juicing

I have an Omega Horizontal Masticating Juicer and as you can see, the chute is stupid narrow, so I have to cut up my apples pretty small. I cut pretty much everything except for the kale.

Since it's a masticating juicer, it's pretty slow no matter what, but I found that cutting stuff into smaller pieces (especially the apples) lets it feed more smoothly, I don't have to jam down the masher and the machine will just "eat" the produce without much assistance from me.

I also find that cutting stuff up in a certain order and then having it ready to feed helps me regulate blockage in the masticating chamber. If I do a bunch of cucumber or apples in a row, there's a build up of pulp which can even manage to build up and leak out of the detachable part and leak down the machine if I just let it stay that way. Having my stuff "layered" in the big bowl I put the chopped produce in helps me alternate, some cucumber, some apple, then some celery and kale. The celery and kale will push the pulp of the cucumber and apple out into the waste hopper. It also helps clean up, if I finish off with kale, then when I clean the main masticating piece off, it's easy to just brush off the remaining pulp and there is less dripping or accidental mess.

You can tell that the part I hate most about juicing is the mess and clean up haha.

EDIT - oh, and I found that when my fiance juices, the machine tends to get really hot on the back near the motor because he doesn't cut as fine as I do and just jams everything in and leans down on the masher. It doesn't get nearly as hot when I'm the one making the juice!

u/austink05 · 2 pointsr/Juicing

I just purchased this one:

I've made green juice every day for the past week, and it's working well. Luckily, they introduced food waste disposal in my apartment complex the day it arrived (Edinburgh). I had a cheaper one in the US back in 2007, and this one is definitely easier to clean and yields more juice in comparison. That said, there's still some water left in the pulp when I throw it out, so a higher price juicer might pay off in the long run if you're going to be juicing a lot. Hope this helps.

u/shutupandjuuj · 2 pointsr/Juicing

I've only had one juicer but I've had it for four years or so now. It's a Breville juice fountain like this: but I found a refurbished version for $50 less, at $100.

Its easy to clean. I just have a stiff brush for the grinder/auger whatever. And a sponge for the rest. I use it for about 5 months out if the year.

u/fuzzywuzzypete · 1 pointr/Juicing

I might have gotten lucky but i got this Breville Juicer on clearance at a TJ Maxx for $60. I've only had it for a week but happy with it so far. Might be worth your time to check out TJ Maxx/Marshalls/etc..

u/the_american_builder · 3 pointsr/Juicing

The Omega J8006 is great. Used to juice wheat grass and turmeric at a small juice bar, gave a great yield.

u/rosickness12 · 4 pointsr/Juicing

I bought this a month ago and it's been good. If you make more than 30oz at a time it may not be best since pulp basket needs to be emptied after 30oz. Very easy to clean. I rinse the 3 parts and it takes less than a minute to clean. I put everything in it and it doesn't slow the motor down at all.

u/bkgordon0610 · 1 pointr/Juicing

Thank you for the advice, /u/Sepplinn! I recently purchased The Ultimate Book of Modern Juicing: More than 200 Fresh Recipes to Cleanse, Cure, and Keep You Healthy by Mimi Kirk. This book has some amazing recipes! I can not wait to use pulp to create dog treats!

I came across Komboucha in the book. I didn't know what it was, so I ran off to Whole Foods to purchase a bottle. It's delicious, so I want to use the recipe to create my own. Aside from Mason Jars, what are the best types of air-tight bottles? I need to purchase some to make the Komboucha, but I have no idea what to buy.

u/lilcrunchee · 2 pointsr/Juicing

I got a discontinued Omega on Amazon for under $300. Works amazing.

Good luck with your sobriety and with the hurricane, I know that has to be some incredible stress.

u/fearandloathing_inc · 2 pointsr/Juicing

the Breville Ikon is super-easy to clean, and the pulp that comes out is very dry - so it's extracting quite a bit of the juice from the fruit and vegetables. It's about $200, so not a small investment, but it's one of the best reviewed out there.

u/Hiwhatsupdoc · 1 pointr/Juicing

The only difference between juicing and blending is blending keeps fiber/ pulp. Blending is better for fruits. Use your juicer for green juices (like Kale, Spinach, etc). A juice should have no or very few fruits in it since there is no fiber.

There are two types of juicers: centrifugal vs masticating juicer. There is some debate, but if you want leafy greens, a masticating juicer is better in my opinion (I have a masticating juicer as I juice leafy greens).

Juicers can be costly (around $400). So if you want to test the water so to speak, get a manual one to see if you will actually do this long term. Something like :

u/StaleCornflake · 3 pointsr/Juicing

This will do you fine for what you will be juicing. I have one of these and a pricier electric one. I use it for cabbage and other greens. You will need a counter to mount it too and the ability to turn the crank.

I don't know if you've purchased yet but here BLACK+DECKER JE2200B 400-Watt Fruit and Vegetable Juice Extractor with Custom Juice Cup, Black is a good one (price/review wise) that I ordered as a beginner juicer.. Anyone have this?

I'll go with it til it dies out and then upgrade to a Breville :-)

u/GammeRJammeR · 3 pointsr/Juicing

For under $100 this is your best bet:

But like others have said, spend a bit more and it'll pay off in the long run. I personally have an Omega NC800 that I purchased from Bed Bath and Beyond with a 20% off coupon for $263.99 & it includes a 15 year warranty. Additionally it'll produce a higher juice yield & higher quality juice on most things which saves me money on produce in the long run.

u/israel_torres · 2 pointsr/Juicing

haha; I almost got the Breville Die-Cast Juice Fountain Elite 299.99 but juiceguy swooped in just in time and talked me into getting the Omega Vert. I should be getting it before the weekend. I'll post updates :)

u/een13 · 2 pointsr/Juicing

I bought the Omega J8006 masticating juicer for $300 about six months ago after doing a bunch of research and have been very pleased with it. It's heavy duty and can handle anything I throw in it. My only complaint is the container the juice drips into is small and requires frequent emptying if you're making more than one juice.

When doing research on my options, I found Joe Cross' Reboot website to be helpful, as well as the reviews and comparisons on Amazon.

u/wellhungartgallery · 1 pointr/Juicing

At this point you might be better off getting a manual juicer it has a hand crank and auger much like a masticating juicer without the motor.
Or eating the celery whole" with some hemp bitter or peanut butter

manual juicer

u/m1327 · 2 pointsr/Juicing

Are you going to only juice oranges and other citrus? How would you juice spinach or kale in this thing?

This is not what you need for juicing imo.

Although I'm more of a proponent to smoothies over juicing (I think the fiber helps reduce sugar spike) -- I think you should get a slow juicer instead of that thing.

If you want a manual deal, do something that looks like this (just the first hit off google that I found):

u/grant622 · 1 pointr/Juicing

I have this one:

Seems to just spit out the grass like a lawn mower.

Started to look into it and saw some hand grinders

u/crapcrapcrapcrap · 2 pointsr/Juicing

Sure. I had a juice 4 times a day and drank water non-stop. Each Juice was 18 ounces. I used these bad boys to take the juice to work.

My morning juice was 2 tomatoes, a whole thing of spinach, celery, carrots, and a 1/4 lemon. Had this around 9AM every morning.

For lunch and an afternoon snack I would split a 36 ounce batch into 2 18 ounce bottles and have one around 12 and the other around 3 or 4PM. This batch contained: 1 whole thing of kale, one whole cucumber, 2 green apples, half a lemon, then i'd fill the remainder with carrots.

For dinner I sometimes cheated and ate (not juiced) a few oranges in addition to my juice. The juice was kind of a free for all at night. I would just put random veggies and fruits in and hope it turned out well. Don't think I had a single one that came out tasting very good. Ingredients I would experiment with were beets, cauliflower, brocolli, sweet potato, arugula, romaine lettuce, kiwi, pineapple, ginger, chard and i think that is pretty much it.

I'm off of the fast now. I'm still doing the same juice recipes/experiments but now for lunch I throw in a meat of some sort.

u/mkhopper · 3 pointsr/Juicing

I bought this masticating juicer a few years ago.
It's held up very well and it's a snap to keep clean.

u/GiantIceMonster · 1 pointr/Juicing

Having a blender instead of a juicer is a huge restriction. I would suggest just substituting one meal a day for a smoothie. My favorite recipe was: fresh strawberries, bananas, blueberries, peach, a dash of milk, a splash of OJ, and a couple scoops of vanilla yogurt, no ice. And an answer to your budget problems, this is my favorite mid grade juicer.

u/cloudswift · 1 pointr/Juicing

Nope, mine isn't that model. Mine is


Ah well, i still love it.

u/givemesnow · 1 pointr/Juicing

Thank you sir. Would you be willing to give any input on this juicer? I'm looking to spend around $100 and that one by far has the best reviews on Amazon, but of course there's also quite a few 1 and 2 star reviews that worry me. Any thoughts?

EDIT: Also I just bought a bunch of fresh spinach juice (before I realized how quickly it goes bad) that I can't drink until Monday. Would it be OK to freeze it in a Nalgene or is that going to destroy it's nutrients?

I have a 700 watt Breville. It works great in my experience. Once you get the hang of it cleanup becomes a breeze. My only issue is that it's rather loud. Oh, and it's advertised as mobile I think but it's really not--I don't think any juicers are, then again.

I live in a fairly large city and have found some decent deals at my local Goodwill store. I found THIS juicer in near new condition just a couple of months ago for $25. Of course, it's always hit and miss with these stores, but if you have one nearly, it's worth a shot.

u/Rivalrous · 1 pointr/Juicing

I invested in an Omega J8006. I actually get a kick out of cutting everything up and watching it work. For me, it's a great machine, but it doesn't suit everyone. I don't think I'd upgrade to another machine unless I had to.

I used to have a Jack LaLanne juicer, but it kicked the bucket pretty quickly and hated greens. I don't think they're bad juicers, though. Just not for me.

u/Therealquixote · 1 pointr/Juicing

Thanks guys. Ill actually be flying, but as a crewmember so security etc. isnt an issue and I have a bag thats a cooler. I have a two day trip starting tomorrow, so Ill juice tonight and bring them with and see what happens. I picked these up to use...

u/phillyfan2426 · 1 pointr/Juicing

After watching the documentary, I bought/read this book to really give a full understanding of it all before buying my juicing and going all in. It also has a ton of recipes in it for juicing/healthy eating, etc.

u/babb4214 · 1 pointr/Juicing

So there's sort of two lines of thought when it comes to the juice losing nutrients right as you juice. That being one of them.

The other is that oxidation is what destroys the enzymes and nutrients that you want from the juice. So if you store it in an airtight container you don't have to worry about it as much. I have a masticating juicer (omega) and from what I hear and have read, the juice is good for up to 3 days! The ONLY juice I've heard that you should probably drink fairly rapidly after making it is carrot juice.

Also, if she's just starting out, here's some decent to go containers


u/PotViking · 5 pointsr/Juicing

Yes, I have learned this! Problem is that the plastic got pitted and would build up shit, no matter how quickly I washed it.

I ended up getting the Omega J8003. We'll see how it goes!
