Omega VRT350 Product Overview

The Omega VRT350 is a masticating style juicer with a vertical design. This machine has the convenience of a centrifugal juicer, as well as the efficiency and quality juice of a single auger masticating juicer. With a compact design, the VRT350 take up very little space on your countertop.

This revolutionary juicer utilizes dual stage juice processing system to extract the maximum amount of juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, and even wheatgrass. First, juice is extracted by crushing the fruit or vegetable. Then, before the pulp is ejected, the pulp is squeezed during the second pressed stage. This results in a higher yield of juice and a very dry pulp. The slow juicing speed of 80rpm also protects and maintains healthy enzymes, prevents oxidation and allows juice to be stored up to 72 hours without degradation.

The VRT350 Vertical Masticating Juicer comes with a pusher to push ingredients into the juicer. The hopper is conveniently located at the top of the juicer. Easy to assemble, the hopper attaches to the bowl, which then attaches to the base. The VRT350 also features two spouts and two 64-ounce containers — one for fresh juice and one for pulp ejection. You can also pour water through the chute to self clean the juicer when changing ingredients. This versatile juicer is also easy to clean.
