Tu for great price!

Masticating juicers sure do take a lot of work though.. Bought a Jack La Lanne, then one of these. Both produced the same amount of juice from my testing. The deciding factor was my lack of patience. With my Jack juicer, I was enjoying fresh juice within minutes. With the Omega, I was looking in the fridge for something to drink by the time juice started flowing. If you don't want to take 20-30 minutes to make some juice, I'd stay away from a masticating juicer.

Not sure that is a fair comparison. The Jack Lalanne is great for hard fruits and veggies (carrots, apples, etc) but can't juice greens or soft fruits/veggies well. The masticating juicer also doesn't oxidize the juice, so you can make large batches and store for 24-48 hours, while the juice from a centrifugal juicer should be consumed within 30 minutes. Finally, a masticating juicer will almost always yield more juice than a centrifugal juicer.

If you want the best of both worlds, get a twin gear masticating juicer. Very fast, pretty easy to clean, and fantastic yields.

That is an absolutely fair comparison. Saying that a centrifugal juicer cannot juice soft fruits or greens? That's specious at best. I do it all the time.

I've had both side by side on my kitchen counter, while deciding which one to keep. The Omega is a great machine, don't get me wrong. It didn't blow the doors off anything though, and it didn't produce more juice than the Jack... Granted, my testing wasn't scientific by any means, but I'm not concerned with half a CC.

Oxidization isn't caused by a juicer. It's caused by exposure to oxygen. It's a chemical process that happens over time. While the masticating juicer is "chewing the cud," it's being exposed to oxygen. It's not as thorough as aerating it in a centrifugal juicer, but if you're storing it for any period of time, it's going to oxidize. While your fruits and veggies are all chopped up into little pieces waiting to be put into the juicer, they're starting to oxidize. When your small apple chunks start turning brown while awaiting the hopper, they're oxidizing.

It is simply not true that a masticating juicer will always produce more juice. If you're making a big deal about negligible amounts, then I say it's possible. If you compare this to a Wal-Mart juicer, then yes. But if you're comparing top of the line to top of the line, then no.

Masticating juicers are great for folks with nothing else to do. You get to spend a lot of time cutting your items into small pieces, then a lot of time waiting for the machine to chew it for you. Cleanup is easier with this, but it takes a long time to produce juice.

Centrifugal juicers are fast. Them giant European cucumbers? Done in 4 seconds. You don't have to cut up small apples, drop them in whole. You don't have to chop your celery into small pieces in one of these. Drop it in whole. Cleanup isn't as easy, but you'll be cleaned up and enjoying your juice a whole lot sooner than someone with a masticating juicer

Not trying to knock either one. I'm just partial to centrifugal, and that's probably obvious in my post. I've got better things to do than spend a bunch of time cutting up food into small pieces for a negligible benefit. If you've got the time, great! It's just not the holy grail that it's purported to be.
