Omega’s Original Juicer – the Model 1000 Centrifugal Juicer. The classic design of the Model 1000 will enhance any kitchen décor. With the simple touch of white and surgical stainless steel, the look will never change. The Model 1000 is durable, dependable, efficient, and very easy to clean. It is no wonder this unit continues to be a leader in the industry. When you purchase an Omega Model 1000 – you’ve purchased “the last juicer you will ever need to own!”
High Yield – The Omega Model 1000 Centrifugal Juicer extracts at least 20% to 30% more juice than most juice extractors.
Exclusive Household and Commercial UL Approval – Unlike other juicers on today’s market that are approved by UL for Household use only, the Omega Model 1000 is UL listed for Household and Commercial use.
Warranty – The Omega Model 1000 carries a 10 Year Warranty.
Motor – The powerful 1/3 horsepower commercial induction motor is the quietest for this style juicer. This brushless motor has very few moving parts resulting in less wear and greater dependability.
Surgical Stainless Steel – The metal parts are forged from heavy gauge surgical stainless steel ensuring years of dependable, worry-free operation. All stainless steel parts are polished or sandblasted to make the unit not only pleasing to look at but easy to clean. With the Model 1000, your juice will only contact stainless steel.
Blade – The stainless steel blade efficiently chews up fruits and vegetables. Its heavy weight speaks for its durability. The blade is designed to “float” or “slip” providing for even distribution of the pulp. This ensures a smooth performance while juicing.
Basket and Bowl – Each stainless steel basket is hand balanced to minimize vibration while juicing. The large stainless steel bowl is polished to a mirror finish on the outside. Both the basket and bowl have a sandblasted finish on the inside. Once again, making for very easy clean up.
Spring Clutch – The little white knob that holds the blade in place is called the spring clutch. This clutch nut allows the blade to “float” and distribute pulp evenly for smooth performance.
Rubber Feet – The Model 1000 stands on a dozen evenly spaced rubber feet. These feet vary in height which helps to prevent the juicer from “walking” across your counter.
Latch Arms – Our cantilever style latch arms were a first in the Industry. Whether you are a strong athlete or if you suffer from arthritis, these latch arms make for easy assembly and disassembly.
Feed Chute - The chute of this juicer is large enough to accommodate large pieces of fruits and vegetable. The larger chutes of other juicers normally slow down the motor when too large of an item is pushed down.
The juicer will perform best when letting the flow of juice out of the spout slow down before putting in the next item. If vibration occurs, a firmer item may bring the juicer back into balance. The juicer may have also reached its capacity and needs to be emptied. Items with peels, like apples, will work best when the peel side of the inserted piece is facing the on/off switch.
Starting - Make sure the juicer is properly assembled and running at full speed before you begin to juice.
Feeding Chute - Do not force feed the juicer. For most fruits and vegetables, a slow, start and stop, or jabbing motion will work best. If the juicer begins to vibrate, a slightly harder push with the firmer item should bring it back into balance.
Fruit and Vegetable Size - Firmer items are best used when just large enough to fit in the chute. Softer items are best used when cut into smaller pieces. Items with thin skins (tomatoes/grapes) are best when chopped into even smaller pieces. Stringy items like celery should be cut into roughly 2" pieces for best performance.
Fruit and Vegetable Combinations - When making a drink that uses a combination of more than one fruit or vegetable, we suggest occasionally alternating the various fruits or vegetables when placing them in the machine. Example: Carrot/Celery/Beet Juice - place a couple of pieces of one item and then the next into the unit. Items can be placed randomly. This will work better than doing all carrots, then all celery, then beets. Although alternating should cut down on chances of vibration, it does not always work when juicing an item with a peel. Example: Carrot/Apple Juice - using most of your carrots first will build a better base for the apple pulp to spread appropriately.
Greens - When juicing leafy greens, we suggest that you twist and roll the green into a ball the size of a golf ball. Always place the greens into the juicer first, followed by crispier produce like carrots, celery, etc. The juice from these vegetables will force additional juice from the greens.
Soft Items - When juicing soft produce (tomatoes, grapes, peaches, cucumbers), it is best to not use the filters. Juice slowly, pausing until the flow of juice has slowed down. The fiber of the softer produce can clog the holes of the basket, so you may have to empty the basket more often. It is helpful to start and/or alternate with firmer produce. There is a greater chance for vibration with these items. Bananas can not be juiced.
Finishing - Allow the Omega Juicer to run for a couple minutes after turning off the juicer to allow all juice to be extracted from the pulp. Once the juicer is turned off, it is normal for the juicer to continue to spin for a couple minutes due to the precision balancing of the Omega Juicer. Consume juice from fruits and vegetables immediately before oxidation occurs.
Produce - It is very important that you select fruits and vegetables that are very fresh - firm, crisp and juicy!
Uses of Pulp - The pulp may be used for flavoring in soups, cakes and salads or as part of compost for gardens and plants. Pulp can also be used as feed for small animals.
Cleaning - Before you begin juicing, thoroughly wash all dirt, wax, dyes and pesticides from your produce. This will allow you to juice the skin which contains many of the valuable food elements. Exceptions: Peel items like cucumbers, pineapples, cantaloupe and citrus. This will aid in easier juicing, cleaner produce and better tasting juice.
Importance of Juicing
Superior Nutrition – one tall glass of fresh juice provides you with the equivalent of eating several pounds of fruit and vegetables.
Quick Energy Lift - the nutrients contained in a glass of fresh juice are absorbed within minutes, requiring almost no digestion as with solid foods.
Diet Control – low calorie, fresh vegetable and fruit juices should be included in any weight reduction program to provide important vitamin and mineral nourishment while lowering calorie intake.
You’ll Look and Feel Better – the extra nutrients contained in fresh juices are vital in producing a clear and radiant complexion, healthy teeth and gums, strong bones, glowing hair and an alert mind.
Ease Chewing and Digestion Problems – individuals with problems such as these can once again enjoy the taste and health benefits of vegetables and fruits by drinking an easy-to-digest liquid.
Healthier Children – finicky eaters will enjoy drinking many delicious and nutritious juices.
Save Money – prepare fresh juices in your own home that are tastier, fresher, more nutritious and cost much less than bottled or prepared juices.
Filters – Optional non-bleached cellulose fiber filters line the strainer basket. These filters will give you a true pulp free juice and let you clean up in seconds. If the filters are not used the clean up is still easy, but takes a little more time. There will also be some pulp in the juice if the filters are not used, but the same amount as most other juicers. After juicing, simply remove the filter and the attached pulp from the strainer basket for a quick and sanitary clean up.
Citrus Attachment – The optional attachment instantly converts your Model 1000 into a professional citrus Juicer. This attachment automatically gears your juicer from 3600 RPMs to 250 RPMs, providing all the power necessary to squeeze every drop of juice from your citrus fruit. It is super efficient, simple to assemble and disassemble.
