About This Item
Tell us if something is incorrect. You certainly can put the parts in a dishwasher although personally I prefer washing them by hand. Add to this skillset the ability to stand in as a pasta maker, food processor, even coffee grinder in a bind and it's clear why this juicer should be on your short list despite having a high price. Keep an eye on this while juicing as sometimes this may get clogged and the juice will stop flowing. In the juicer community it is known as a workhorse and has built-up a cult-like following even to this day.

All in all, what you get from the Omega NCHDC, is high-quality and great tasting juice with very minimal oxidation that can be stored for up to 3 days. Match that up with the patent designed screw auger made out of Ultem plastic, and you have a juicer easily capable of crushing tough produce. You can absolutely juice with this machine on mornings or late evenings without waking or disturbing anyone!
The first one or two times, assembling the parts can seem tricky, but the key is to look at the manual you get with the juicer. Once you drop produce through the hopper, use the food pusher to push things down and the auger takes care of the rest. I always recommend you start cleaning your juicer immediately after you finish using it.

A very important tip for using masticating juicers, as mentioned in our reviews, is if you want to juice kale and apple for example, then you should not use all the kale leaves at once and then all the pieces of apple.
So in our case with the kale and apple, the last thing you should choose would be a piece of apple as that will push through any remaining pieces of kale. Before turning the machine on, make sure all your fruit and vegetables are prepared, so washed and precut, as this will save time during the juicing process.
Ultimately, if you are looking for mainly green juices, consisting largely of kale, leafy greens, wheatgrass and sprouts etc. However, the Omega J Nutrition System Juicer may not be as straightforward as other juicers, simply because others do less.
