The VSJ843 is yet another Omega’s latest model of vertical masticating juicers currently available on the market. It comes with some innovative features, which set it far apart from a few of the other vertical slow juicers in its category. An auto-cleaning system, a stopper that perfectly fitted on the end of juice spout, a double-edged auger that rotates at about 43RPM, and a slow speed motor that makes almost silent operation possible are some of its aspects that makes the Omega VSJ843 slow juicer stand out. It also has a slightly wider stance and a square design that will look great in any kitchen.
The VSJ843 juicer is the slowest and single auger upright juicer available out there, particularly in the USA market and other parts of the world. Its speed of 43RPM ensures great flavor and promotes high levels of nutrients and enzymes, which are quite essential for an individual’s state of health and well-being.
• Dual-Edged Auger – an auger is an important part of any juicer as it crushes the vegetables and fruits put into the machine. Unlike traditional augers that are single edged, this VSJ843Q masticating juicer contains a new double-edged auger that helps in improving overall juice extraction and yield.
• Juice Tap – a nice, little stopper fitted on the juicing spout end is another great feature of this particular model of Omega’s vertical masticating juicers. This stopper allows you to control the flow of juice and also helps get rid of spills and drips when switching out containers or moving the juicer.
• Auto-Cleaning System – this appliance also contains a system, which moves around the juicing screen while wiping it clean to ensure that the pulp doesn’t build up or interfere with your juicing process. After using it, water is used to rinse away excess juice and pulp from the juicer. This also helps reduce the overall cleaning time required.
• Slow Squeezing Technology – this version is the first one in its class to use a slow squeezing technology that is designed to extract maximum amount of healthy nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and juice from little produce such as soybeans, veggies and leafy greens. The SST method is also used to reduce the amount of pulp in the juice.
• A Low Speed Motor –the auger rotates at approximately 43RPM, which is less than 50% of a typical masticating juicer. The slow speed helps minimize the amount of foam produced and protect the juice from oxidation, leaving a healthier and great tasting final product.
• A 15-Year Warranty – Omega is well known for designing and building high quality juicers currently available on the market and they always stand behind their unique products by providing very impressive warranties; for instance, Omega comes with a 15-year warranty.
