Omega 9000 Introduction

The Omega 9000 juicer doesn’t look classy or modern but it is, in all senses, an extremely efficient machine designed to do just one thing – juice!

This Omega promises to squeeze and churn out nearly 25% more juice than any pulp ejector ever can. Additionally, the 9000 series happens to be UL listed. It also offers a pretty neat 1/3 HP commercial grade induction motor that is not just powerful but also quiet. Being a brushless motor, it doesn’t wear quick neither does it make noise. Next up, all metal parts are made from surgical level heavy grade stainless steel so you are set for years to come. Practically speaking, the Omega 9000 is the culmination of years of juicing research and good design improvements. Not only is it efficient but also rugged and durable. Made in USA, Omega trusts in its craftsmanship enough to offer a long 15-year warranty cover.

Our Omega 9000 Review

Now Omega is best known for masticating juicers not for making centrifugal ones but with the Omega 9000 and the 10000 units they make an effort in competing in the centrifugal market. Being avid fans of the Omega brand, we could not resist giving the 9000 with the metal top a spin. Let’s be upfront and quickly reveal our verdict – It is a dream juicer with minor quirks but definitely reeks of Omega quality and efficiency!

To start with, the construction on this juicer is phenomenal. It is all out surgical quality stainless steel or high grade commercial polycarbonate. Together the two materials provide the juicer with superman like abilities. Yup, the construction instils immediate confidence though, we were disappointed to learn that the 9000 just does not come in any color other than white. Bummer since black is what we would go for. Putting that minor niggle aside though, the design and construction is top notch.

Next up, the performance. Well, it gets slightly more complicated here. To start with, this one uses vertical baskets with filters that manage to pull juice out of the pulp. Naturally, pulp starts gathering up and to ensure that you get more juice for your efforts, it relies on a last line of paper like disposable filters. This unfortunately means that eventually, the filters will clog up and you have to replace those made from paper. Thankfully, getting 200 of them is no more expensive than $12. On the flipside though, because of the use of multiple layers of filtering, it is one of the easiest centrifugal juicers to clean up. By the way, the pulp truly is dry and works great as compost, manure or even as ingredients for specific recipes.

What can you not do with this juicer? Just couple of things really and it isn’t a negative as much as technology limitation. Because this juicer relies on a last line of paper filters, it doesn’t do good with leafy or watery veggies. The filters tend to hold back more of the pulp than normal if you try juicing leafy veggies. A trick around this is to add in harder or drier ingredients first and then juice leafy stuff but it only works if you plan on mixing your ingredients. The good news though is that 1/3 HP induction motor doesn’t whine even when churning through carrots in a bunch!

One last thing you ought to know, the Omega 9000 centrifugal juicer is backed by a long 15-years warranty and from what we gather, you never really have to use it because folks have been juicing for over a decade without any issues. Every few months you have to buy new paper filters and every few years you might have to change the discs but that is all the maintenance this juicer needs. Also helps that it is super easy to clean thanks to stainless steel and polycarbonate components.
