Vertical Masticating Juicer Reviews
If you’ve been buzzing round my site then you’re gonna know my that I love vertical masticating juicers. Do you know which one I got? Yeah, that’s right, the Omega VRT330HD. It’s just the same as the Omega VRT350HD with one difference. You know what it is? If you guessed color then you’re a winner! The 330 series are white and the 350 series juicers are silver and black colored plastic. But when it comes to using them, they are identical twins.
So what’s so special about this kind of juicer? I had to ask myself the same question before I bought mine. You know, for me, it really came down to a few different factors. First up, I don’t care what anyone says, masticating juicers make juices that just taste better. You can’t argue with this until you’ve tried. And once you’ve tried, I know you’re gonna dig it!
The downside to most old school masticating juicers is that they’re the horizontal style. You know, the Omega J8006 juicer and the like. The juice quality is right on but using those old machines just takes up a lot of time. So this is the second reason I like the vertical ones. They make great tasting juice AND they’re quick to use. Okay, maybe not quite as quick as a centrifugal juicer BUT fast enough to excite me and worth it enough, in terms of juice quality, to make me prefer them.

These Omega juicers aren’t the only show in town. We’ve also got the Hurom Slow Juicer and Kuvings Silent Juicer to choose from. The Hurom is almost identical to the Omega juicers but it only comes with one juicing screen. The other differences are that the Hurom doesn’t have quite as comprehensive a warranty BUT on the plus side, it’s a bit cheaper. The Kuvings juicer looks a bit clunky to me but it’s both cheaper AND comes with as good a warranty as the Omega vertical masticating juicers. I’ll be honest with you, as far as I am concerned, any one of these machines would be the best juicer for me.
Check out the three juicers below. As you can see, they are very similar.
