In a comparison of the Omega VRT350 vs J8006, both feature quiet, continuous dual-stage juicing at a low speed of 80 RPMS. Most other juicers operate at very high speeds, which destroy healthful enzymes and degrade juice. Juice from Omega models can be stored for up to three days.
Omega VRT350 vs J8006 – Four Ways They Differ
When it comes to the look of the Omega VRT350 vs J8006 models, the similarities between the models end. The J8006 is a horizontal juicer. Its dimensions are 6½” wide x 14½” deep x 15½” high and it has a chrome finish. The Omega VRT350 is a vertical juicer that is compact and contemporary. It is only 7″ wide and 8½” deep, with a height of 15½” — similar to a blender or other counter appliance — with a satin finish.
Both vegetable juicers have some advanced but differing features. The Omega J8006 is equipped an auger made from GE Ultem. This is a plastic that is tough and durable, giving the juicer a long life and a commercial status. The special feature on the VRT350 is its automatic cleaning system, which helps to keep the screen clear and reduces clouding, a common complaint among juicer users.
Two other differences are warranty and price. The J8006 carries a 15 year warranty, while the VRT350′s is 10 years. The VRT350 cost about $100 more than the J8006 at most retailers.
Omega VRT350 vs J8006 – And The Winner Is?
While both models offer convenient and healthy features from a leader in the juicing industry, the Omega VRT350 and J8006 each have their own specific use.
Depending on what you want to juice, the Omega VRT350 produces slightly higher yield than the J8006 for all kinds of produce, especially for juicing fruits. But if you plan on using your juicer for juicing leafy greens, wheat grass or celery then the Omega J8006 is more efficient than the VRT350. The 8006 Juicer also produces less pulpy, less foam juice compared to the VRT350 model.
The Omega VRT350 is more “general purpose” and quicker than the J8006 model. The feed chute of the VRT350 is self-feeding but you have to apply pressure to feed your produce into the feed chute of the J8006. The Omega J8006 is cheaper and better for a “specific purpose” juicing than the VRT350.
