Omega VRT350 macticating juicerThis juicer has been created for people who are conscious about their health and are looking for a way want to get the maximum amount of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients out of the fruits and veggies they put in their juicer.

If you search online, you will find lots of positive reviews about this juicer praising its features and construction that allows to process and extract juice from different types of produce.

Features

Patented GE’s ULTEM Material

One of the most prominent reasons why this model is so good at juicing various types of fruits and vegetables (and even wheatgrass!) is its patented stone mill-like screw. This part of VRT350 juicer is 8 times stronger than standard auger you can find in juice machines from other brands.

It is possible because of the material used for this part. This screw is made of innovative ULTEM material manufactured by General Electric. ULTEM material is well known for its heat resistance and solvent resistance.

The distinctive feature of this appliance is low RPM speed. It produces only 80 RPMs (other juicers work at several thousands of RPMs). The low speed works best in preserving high levels of nutrients and vitamins in your juice because it foams less and thus does not oxidize and lose the nutrient value. It will also taste better, and cleanup will be much easier.

High Yield

Omega VRT350 RedOmega VRT juicers (not only 350 but also 330 and 400 models) are featuring Automatic Wiping System (AWS).

AWS system uses silicone wiping blades to make sure that the juicing screen is clear of pulp. In this case, maintaining the clean screen is not the purpose – AWS lets you get a higher yield of juice.

It is proven by multiple tests and reviews that the VRT350 slow juicer (along with VRT330 and VRT400) produces significantly more juice than other juicers in the market.

This is an excellent choice if you want to benefit from more antioxidants and enjoy excellent flavor and freshness ensured by the juicing process provided by Omega VRT350HD that allows avoiding frothing and foaming.

Easy to Clean

As mentioned above, it is easy to keep your Omega heavy duty juicer VRT 350 clean. You do not even have to take it apart for cleaning (we still advise to clean it thoroughly now and then).

You just have to pour water into the machine and let it go through the appliance to flush away the pulp that has been stuck to its parts after processing the previous batch of fruits and veggies.
