After much hesitation we decided to deep into the higher end of the omega citrus juicer line the omega C-20C citrus juicer which has been getting mixed reviews in its preformance. We decided that we are up for some controversy so it is time to do some of our own research to see wether or not this orange juice machine lives up to its name or if it is a complete flop.
From what we know the omega line of products has been out for quite some time now and has been making quite an impact on the market. In fact the biggest competitor to date with this model is the breville citrus juicer which we would have to say is making a big impact on the sales of omega over the past year. Due to the publicity that the breville juicer has been getting the Omega line hasn’t been able to get as much publicity, however this is quite understandeable as the citrus machine by omega is a bit on the pricier side.
The history of the omega juicing company is quite intriguiing. They have been at the forefront of producing the most efficient and reliable commercial capacity juicers for quite some time. Founder Rober Leo has just over 20 years of grinding in this field of designing the best and most powerful juicers that are crafted for customers who are looking to make the best juice they possibly can. The company was launched in 1985 and during this time robert and his company were aimed with a mission to make juicers for america that would finally serve all needs. We are all quite familiar with the juicers by omega that are the big mouth or centrifugal line of products. These generally are quite popular for those who juice fruits and vegetables however there was not much fuss or noise in the market about their citrus juicers. The flagship centrifugal juicers have been receiving raving reviews on their performance and output so we had quite a high expectation when going into testing out the citrus juicer by omega.
Omega has not only received great reviews by those who use their products but by the American consumer community who have given them an A+ in the good housekeeping award, this is quite rare and definitely a huge achievement. So despite this we wanted to see if the citrus juicer by omega could live up to this standard and eventually get what we expected from it.
Omega C-20c Citrus Juicer Review
From the onset we realized that for an electric orange juicer machine the omega citrus juicer was quite big and bulky. With a heavy onset and firm outer build it did look quite unique and ineteresting and definitely firm in its build. The overall dimensions of the product were 10 inches by 10 inches by 15.8 inches and weighs in at around 25.1lbs. We were ready to take this by the horns and get to see the key features which could possibly make this a pass or fail for us here at orangejuicer-review.
***Initially when we had unboxed the orange juicer and put it in our kitchen we had to find a good amount of place to clear so that the machine would be clear and settle in nicely. Here we were able to clear the counter top and finally place the juicer so that everything works smoothly and nicely and there was not much clutter. Right from the get go we realized that the machine was very quite when the power was turned out, yet despite being quite the power was raw and one heck of a beast. The power on this machine is very strong so that if you are to hold an orange on the reamer it might actually get ripped out of your hands, and might actually cause some damage to your hand! Despite that it takes time to get a hang of juicing the citrus fruits on the reamer. In any case we were impressed by the power and the lack of sound, but were taken back by the safety precautions.
***When you order the orange juice machine of amazon it conventionally and statistacally comes with three different sized augers which will be able to handle for you all your citrus juicing needs. You will be able to juice small lemons to the larges grapefruits and this is one of the greatest benefits of the machine we saw with our own eyes. Despite the augers coming in different sizes and being able to handle all kinds of oranges they were made of plastic. In our opinion if you are going to pay this price tag we would expect atleast metal or chrome for the augers of higher quality.
***The outer experience of the juicer was very nice. It looks great in any kitchen and has a shiny futuristic post-modern look that anyone would be pleased with who is in this field of juicing. We know how important it is to have a juicer that not only has great capabilities when it comes to extracting orange juice but it also has to look appealing to the eyes. The cast housing of the juicer is made of heavy duty cast aluminum which by nature is of high quality and expensive which makes this machine a great candy for the eyes.
***We mentioned that it has alot of power, besides the power you will be able to juice large amounts of juice continuously without running into massive issues or tests or having to pause and stop. In fact this makes the perfect juicer for juicing large quantities of juice and we would recommend it to any large family or enthusiast who has to produce large amounts of orange juice.
- For the price tag this juicer has a heck of a lot of power at 1800 rotations per minute.
- Solid and heavy duty cast aluminium housing which protects the juicer from acid erosion and looks great.
- Ability to juice large quantities of orange juice in one go without having to stop much.
- Different sized cones for all kinds of citrus fruits so you can juice.
- More Product Details
- The cones were made of plastic and we were expecting them to be made of higher quality material
If you have the experience the omega citrus juicer makes a great machine for oranges for you.
