Review – Omega NC900 HD Juicer
Following on from the highly successful J8006 Juicer the Omega NC900 HD 6th Generation Nutrition Center juicer incorporates several upgrades and improvements based on customer feedback and innovative ideas. This 6th generation single auger masticating juicer now has a wider feed chute, 2 inches by 1.5 inches, thus making it easier to fit larger pieces of produce in, which means less time is needed chopping ingredients into very smaller pieces. ‘
This is an efficient, stylish juicer that produces one of the highest yield and juice qualities available today’
The single auger crushes and forces the ingredients into a chamber that guarantees the best juice extraction, even with wheatgrass and leafy vegetables.
The secret behind the efficiency of this juicer lies in the design of the auger. Omega has created a two-stage system using just one auger. The first stage takes care of the crushing; reducing the ingredients to pulp, then the second stage compresses the pulp extracting the maximum amount of juice. This is a real efficient design and improves on the already impressive J8006 model. The Auger is manufactured from a very strong material (GE Ultem) which Omega claim is 8 times stronger than the normal plastic Augers. The new pulp adjuster has various settings from 1 – 5 according to the produce you are juicing. Recommended settings are 1-2 for juicing soft fruit, 3 & 4 for veg and hard fruit and 5 for leafy vegetables, carrots, wheatgrass and other very hard produce.
User have reported that the juicer performs very well with celery, sweet potato, pineapple, bitter gourd, carrots, pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, pear, cucumber, asparagus, ginger, garlic, coconut, apple, fennel, watermelon, beets. Leafy greens including peppermint, dandelion stalks, wheatgrass, basil, parsley, lettuce, beets, spring onion, brussels sprout, spinach and kale all feed nicely through the machine.back to menu ↑
Juice Quality and Yield
This juicer produces one of the highest yields in the masticating juicer range and also a very high quality juice. Like any raw produce it is always better to consume as soon as possible, however the slow juicing produce no discernible heating and with the minimal foaming allows you to store juice longer, up to 72 hrs. A great bonus if you are strapped for time and want to make a batch for use over 2-3 days whilst keeping the essential nutrients, enzymes and vitamins at an optimum level. Also note that all working parts that come in contact with your juice are BPA-free.back to menu ↑
Masticating juicers are by design much quieter that their centrifugal counterparts. Omega single auger machines are known for their quiet efficient operation and the Omega NC900 HD Juicer is certainly quiet. You can still have a conversation with someone when the machine is running. Family members will appreciate not being disturbed while you attend to your juicing.back to menu ↑
This juicer’s design has relatively few parts. Disassembly is quick and cleaning should be easily completed in around 5 minutes. To clean its a simple matter of using hot water and as with any juicer we recommend clean up as soon as juicing is finished. The auger is best cleaned with the supplied stiff brush and should be given a vigorous scrubbing to remove the residue.
Several years ago Omega offered a very impressive 10 year guarantee, which has now been increased to 15 years! If you are comparing the relatively higher pricing of the Omega NC900 HD Juicer to others we feel that these machines offer value for money in the long term.

The Omega NC900 HD Juicer is a leap forward for Omega and we love that they have taken on board customer feedback and increased the size of the feed chute. The NC900 extracts a high quality juice efficiently, in fact we rate it as a top juicer as far as quality and yield goes. For the green juice producer it excels and also works exceptionally well with a mix of soft fruit and hard produce, less so if you wish to produce soft fruit juices. You will also find the Omega NC900 HD Juicer produces maximum yield when driven carefully by adjusting the settings according to the produce being juiced.
Overall we consider it a great long-term investment if you want to get the maximum return from your produce. This model in our opinion is set to become the best seller in Omega’s range.
The NC900HDC has outshone our previous favourite the Omega 8006. Omega have once again produced a winner that is destined to become a top choice for the discerning juicer owner.
