Food Juicers – Omega Juicer and Champion Juicer

Omega 8003 Juicer

Omega Juicer

I bought this juicer to make juice from leafy vegetables and it does an excellent job. It’s about 18lbs and very quiet in operation. The parts are dishwasher safe and easy to assemble, disassemble, and clean. Get one! I paid $199.95 online.

What I like most about the Omega Juicer is it is very easy to clean up and although I’m not sure the parts are dishwasher safe or not, I run them through the dishwasher (Top Rack) without any problems (100’s of times). Quiet, easy-to-use, slow auger juicing at it’s best! Well worth the investment. Plus this juicer is light enough to pick up and move around or keep in a cupboard if you want.

Plastic Parts, but they have a solid feel. I’ve owned mine with no problems now for more than 2 years.

Champion Juicer

Champion Juicer
I have owned my Champion Juicer for more than 3 years and it’s an excellent juicer. It really excels at carrot juice and juicing soft fruits. It is not a good choice for leafy greens, but a better choice than the Omega for soft fruits because it extracts more juice per ounce of raw fruit.

The Champion is a high speed auger juicer which can supposedly damage delicate enzymes as the friction will heat the juice.

The Champion parts are NOT dishwasher safe and are not as easily cleaned as the Omega. Be careful cleaning the auger as there is a possibility you could cut yourself on the teeth. The teeth are not particularly sharp, but it’s possible.

I purchased my Champion Juicer direct from the Manuafacturer for $230. I bought the “commercial” version which is exactly the same as the home version except it has heavy duty wiring. I doubt it makes much difference, this thing is built like a tank and I’ll never wear the motor out. This juicer is loud compared to the Omega. It also spins at a very high rate supposedly not as good for the juice as mentioned. It’s also very heavy compared to the Omega 8003 so it’s not something you will want to move around much. Buy the color that matches your kitchen and make room on the counter!

Metal Parts and built like a tank!
