Omega Big Mouth Juicer - BMJ330
- Product Review (submitted on September 14, 2011):
After reading the comments about this juicer, I am moved to write about this product's performance. I have owned and used the 1000 Series (no side chute) since 1981 - it still works perfectly when used correctly. (i.e. mixing leafy with hard causes the pulp to lay inside in such a way that juicer gets off balance). I am considering purchasing this one as I tire of cleaning out the bowl of the 1000 and want to be able to juice more without having to stop as often.
Now for this Omega. My sister owns two of these, as well as a masticating, and blenders. She recently purchased one of these for Earth Day here in Dallas. (She owns a juice bar.) It arrived 10 days before the event. She plugged it in and started to juice. It began to burn up. She contacted Omega who sent her a replacement within 2 days as well as a little nice surprise that I won't get into. She was up and running for Earth Day with two of these juicers, lemon press, and blenders. My husband and I operated the Omega 330s. One was used for "green drinks" (kale, spinach, parsley, w/a piece of fruit thrown in if requested) the other for the "specialty drinks" with mostly apple, pear, beets, carrots, ginger,cucumbers. We made about 250-300 drinks in two days with these two juicers. The cleanup was easy enough - dump the bucket and rinse the bowls, and cutting disc. We had a great time and everyone loved their juice.
There was no "juice spurting out" or any other spurting of the juicers. We were busy all the time and I was on the lookout for spills to clean up lest the Health Department stop by. So I suggest for those who are having trouble with "juice spurting out" that you keep the pusher in until the item is completely juiced; as that is the way it is suppose to be operated. I might add, my sister reports having "stuff spurting out" when she didn't empty the catch bucket as required during her "learning curve". We never had that problem at Earth Day as we operated within the design limits.
