Leafy green vegetables are a wonderful source of the vitamins and minerals that your body needs. The only major drawback is that eating them regularly can be quite a chore. This is why we recommend investing in a quality juicer to get your daily dose of green veggies. While centrifugal juicers are able to juice these types of foods, they are not as efficient and do not produce as high of a juice yield as masticating juice extractors. If you get a juicer and you plan on using it for green vegetables, then this is the type of juicer you will want to buy.
The NC800 from Omega is one such masticating juicing machine that was designed to handle this type of produce. Omega juicers are some of the best rated juice extractors on the market and they garner excellent scores from owners for their performance juicing kale, spinach, chard, lettuce, and even wheatgrass. The NC800 is a newer model that includes some added innovations to help increase juice yield and make the entire process a little faster. Here is a quick review of one of the newcomers that has quickly made a name for itself.
Features of the NC800
The Omega NC800 enables you to enjoy healthy juicing. The heavy duty nutrition system extracts fruit juice from both hard and soft fruits, vegetable juices from all kinds of vegetables and wheat-grass or leafy green juice from some of the natural products that can be juiced such as kale, spinach, cabbages and pine tree needles. You will also be able to make baby food, almond milk, soy milk, all natural kinds of butter and a variety of healthy snacks.
Low-Speed Juicing System
Omega NC800 operates at low speeds of 80 Revolutions per Minute (RPM), minimizing heat build-build and oxidation. The nutrients are therefore protected and retain their nutritional value and flavor. The low speed also minimizes the overall noise level of the juicer, which remains constantly low even if hard food like nuts or carrots are fed into the juicer.
Easy to Clean
Its parts are easily removable and can be cleaned by placing them on the top rack of your dishwasher. Thoroughly wash parts by immersing them in warm water, which is diluted with one or two drops of dish-washing soap or baking soda for approximately 30 minutes.
Large Feed Chute
Larger vegetable and fruits can be easily fed into the masticating juicer without having to cut them into small pieces. This will save your time, especially if you juice a lot of produce for your family at once.
The adjustable settings increase the overall juice yield. You will adjust the speed at which the pulp exit the juicer by dialing the adjustable settings either up or down based on the type of fruits or vegetables you are juicing. If it’s hard food such as carrots, set the dial to 5. For softer produce, lower the dial to 1. The highest setting is useful in restricting the pulp rate and helps in building pressure which results in the increase of juice extraction and maximization of juice yield.
Dual Stage Masticating Extraction
This is the most efficient way of extracting juice from greens, fruits and vegetables as it leads to high yields, leaving almost dry pulps which are ejected automatically during the juice extraction process. The ingredients retain essential nutrients, vitamins, and their natural flavor.
