The Omega NC800 HDS juicer is an entry to mid-level appliance. It’s considered to be in line with the best juicers on the market in its price range. Its ease of use is a fantastic benefit especially for beginner juicers or those who prefer fuss free juicing.
One can’t go past its aesthetically pleasing looks, consequently making it a conversation starter on any kitchen bench top. It will no doubt blend with most kitchen decors.
The Omega NC800 HDS is a high powered and versatile juicer that simply cannot be overlooked in your search for an adequate juicer for all your juicing needs. It’s highly rated and popular with many features and benefits I will discuss below.
It is important to note that the Omega NC800 HDS is a horizontal juicer. This means that is it longer and wider than it is tall, taking up more bench space than a vertical juicer such as the Omega VRT350X Vertical Masticating Juicer.
However, there is a plus to having a horizontal juicer, if choosing to store it in a kitchen cabinet, it will usually fit with ease due to it not being as tall as it’s vertical counterpart.
The Omega NC800 is also great for juicing Wheatgrass too.
The Omega NC800 HDS is a masticating juicer. In short, this means that the machine squeezes as much liquid as possible from your produce.
It has been my experience that masticating juicers produce far tastier juices and are generally less noisy than their centrifugal counterparts.
The juice from a masticating juicer is less likely to be ‘foamy’ and won’t separate, no matter how many different types of produce you place into your juicer to make the one juice.
Let us now take a look at the product specifications and features in this Omega NC800 juicer review.
Size – 14.5″ x 6.5″ x 15.5″
Weight – 20 lbs
Manufacturer – Omega Juices
Type – Masticating
Warranty – A very generous 15 year warranty. This in itself is an indication of just how high quality the appliance is.
Wide feeder chute – This is a definite benefit for juicers. The Omega NC800 accommodates larger pieces of produce, as a result saving you precious time. Previous models had round chutes measuring just 1.5″. The Omega NC800 has an oval chute measuring 2″ x 1.5″.
Easy to read manual – Comes with very clear instructions on how to put the juicer together and how to use it, because your time and sanity are important.
Multifunctional & versatile – The Omega NC800 is not just a juicer. It can make pasta. Grind coffee. Make nut butter, baby food and, frozen desserts. It even makes soy and almond milk!
Quiet – You can juice without disturbing others in your home. Especially great if you’re an early riser and like to start your day with a fresh juice to give you a kickstart.
BPA Free – Made from strong and durable plastic that is 100% BPA free.
Low RPM – The NC800 uses a low RPM speed of just 80, which means minimal heat is used when juicing your produce, resulting in a better quality, longer lasting juice that has a higher nutrition content.
Easy to clean – Super easy cleaning design gives you quick and easy access to all parts.
Dry Pulp – You will get every last drop of juice from your produce, as a result, the pulp will be very dry. Dry pulp is an indication of a very good juicer that extracts all that it is able to.
Bigger screen – Because of the bigger juicing screen with the NC800, this results in a more yield due to an efficient extraction process.
Soft fruits can back up – Softer fruits turn mushy at times in the juicing process. This can be eliminated by simply adding a drier piece of produce directly after, such as a carrot.
Extra Pulp – While not a major issue, the juice seems like it’s not entirely pulp free. Straining through a nut milk bag such as this one can resolve this.
Works best with:
The Omega NC800 works best with leafy green vegetables. With the added benefit of an adjustable end cap, this enables you to squeeze the maximum juice from your greens. Having said that, it works effectively with juicing other fruits and vegetables too.
Juice is always best to be consumed as soon as possible. But with the fast paced lives we live this is not always possible. Juice made with the Omega NC800 can be stored in a glass bottle such as this one and placed in the fridge for no more than 3 days.
Best suited for:
Beginner right through to intermediate juicers. Particularly those looking for a quality juicer that is multipurpose.
I rate the Omega NC800 a 9/10.
The Omega NC800 lives up to its reputation. As a result, it makes high quality and tasty juices without the fuss that comes with some juicers. Easy to clean and has a stylish design. High powered motor with minimal noise. It comes with a generous length warranty. What I love most about it is the versatility of the appliance. It definitely ticks all the boxes. This is certainly a juicer worth considering.
