Omega BMJ330

Omega BMJ330

Today we’re having a look at a juicer which bills itself as commercial quality, yet doesn’t seem to have a commercial-level price tag attached. So does it live up to its name or juice at a level as low as its price?

Appearance and Build

There are two ways to frame this juicer’s appearance: The first is that it’s clunky. Weighing in at around 12 pounds, this juicer may be a bit to lug around if you don’t always keep it out on your counter. Which brings us back to its commercial billing: clunky or not, this juicer feels and looks very sturdy. Although it doesn’t have the futuristic aesthetic that many other juicers boast, it also doesn’t give the impression that it’s getting knocked over or broken any time soon.

Features

This Omega is built to juice, not look pretty. The working parts are made almost exclusively from stainless steel which should increase durability and also aid cleaning. Plus unlike plastic, metal parts won’t stain from carrots.

This juicer has a very wide feed tube – this means you won’t have to chop up produce very much prior to juicing. And it completes the actual juicing quite well. Yield was fair to good. The centrifugal blade runs at 12,000 rpm via 350 watt motor. The noise level wasn’t shocking, especially for a centrifugal juicer.

Overall, this model is worth the money if you’re a purist on a budget who is strictly after quality juice produced by a durable machine. It’s worth noting that setting this machine up to juice is a bit more of a hassle than some other juicers, as the parts can be a bit reluctant to snap into place. Having said that, once you grow accustomed to the Omega this issue should resolve itself.
