Omega is known for incorporating plastic Ultem augers in their masticating juicers, but this model comes with a stainless steel juicing screw. There is also an adjustable knob which you can adjust the pressure with and you can tighten it for really tough vegetables or fruits.
There is an extra juicing screen which allows you to adjust pulp level. If you’ll do the extra work of pre-cutting the product in the right size, preferably length-wise, it will self feed, so you won’t put any additional effort when juicing.
Ease of Use
Everyone loves easy-to-use appliances. However, you will need to open the manual for this one when you get it out of the box for the first time. It comes with a degree of somewhat complexity, but you can learn how it works quite fast. Just remember to align the twin gear unit in order to avoid any malfunction. Also, make sure to cut the product in small pieces to prevent jamming.
We’ve tested it for one week and found that the juice extractor is certainly not dishwasher safe. It’ll take about 5 to 7 minutes to clean the parts under running water. Omega officially recommends immersing all detachable components in some warm water diluted with soap or baking soda for about half an hour. This can soften the residue build up, facilitating fast cleanup.
It will be challenging to clean the juicing screens and the juicing screws. The metal augers can corrode so you have to be fast. Well, timing is quite crucial here so do not postpone. We recommend you to clean the juicer immediately after using it.
The Omega TWN30S has a triturating motor which extracts juice from veggies and fruits. It squeezes and grinds the juice out of the produce very effectively at 160 RPM. There is no oxidation and the nutrients are well-preserved as well as the vitamins and enzymes.
Unlike other products from Omega in this range, this juicer has stainless steel materials which offer juice that is richer and fuller in taste. This also accounts for added juice quality and efficiency. You can easily store the juice for up to 3 days.
The Omega TWN30S produces a top quality yield. It squeezes all the juice out of any vegetable or fruit and leaves behind a very dry pulp. We were pleased to see how the juice amount is maximized each and every time. The technology behind this piece of machinery really is unique and this is probably another reason why it costs so much.
The 2HP motor operates at 160 RPM, which is quite normal for a masticating juicer. A bit more power would have helped.
Given the slow speed at which it operates, it really is as quiet as it is advertised. If you’re a night owl or an early bird and don’t want to disturb everyone else when juicing, know that you won’t have any problems with this machine.
It’s very efficient and makes little noise.
