About Omega Juicers
Omega Juicers' History
Omega Juicers develops some of the most efficient and reliable commercial capacity juicers on the market today. Omega’s founder, Robert Leo, spent over twenty years at the helm of a pioneering juicing company listening to consumers and crafting a product concept that could deliver what clients wanted. Armed with industry experience and a clear vision, Leo launched his own company in 1985. Originally called Olympic Products and later renamed Omega Products, we are still the only company on the market that offers consumers centrifuge, masticating, and pulp ejection style juicers.
In 2009, Omega was acquired by the Legacy Companies. The Legacy Companies was founded in 1998 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and currently owns such world famous foodservice brands as General Slicing, Maxximum, and Zeroll. Despite the rise of countless imitators, Omega has proven that a solid foundation and consumer driven design is the only way to achieve enduring success.
As the industry has flourished and grown to include a larger number of providers and health conscious consumers, Omega’s product offerings have also evolved. Omega’s flagship juicers are the Centrifuge style juicers which extract 20% to 30% more juice then others, and utilize a vertical stainless steel basket to consistently spin juice out of pulp for a silky smooth drink. The “Pulp Ejection” style juicers that are also part of the Omega line feature a receptacle bin that catches all refuse from produce and makes cleanup and disposal quick and simple without sacrificing power or speed. Omega’s “Mega Mouth” facilitates productivity even further with a oversized feed chute that accommodates extra large portions and even whole fruits. In addition, Omega’s “Masticating” style juicers help health conscious consumers add wheatgrass and leafy greens to their juice because of an 80 RPM “low speed juicing system” that reduces heat buildup and oxidation while keeping healthy enzymes intact.
In recent news, Omega's BL660W series received an "A" rating from Good Housekeeping! Omega offers a selection of powerful blenders from 1 peak HP to 3 peak HP. With four blender series to choose from, you can pick the horse power, capacity, and blending features that you need. By providing a variety of power and control options, you can streamline your foodservice operation or home blending needs without compromising versatility. The BL3 series blenders give users 1 peak HP motor and simple on/off controls. There is an option for a tritan container, stainless steel container or both! The BL4 has a 3 peak HP motor and more options like timers, variable speeds and a choice in container capacity. And our BL6 series has even more options. They feature commercial grade Tritan containers, an advanced coupling system that allows all components to be seamlessly fitted, and a slip resistant base that keeps every blender steady, even on slick work surfaces. This series delivers consistently refreshing blends thanks to intuitive controls like the infinity control that automatically revs the machine up and down to pull the mixture into the blades. No plunger needed! An ideal combination for fast-paced kitchens.
The Drink Dispensers & Granita Machines
Aside from producing various juicers and blenders models, Omega has also designed drink dispensers and Granita machines that allow product to be cooled, mixed, and displayed in a compact, energy efficient container.
Omega also designed the Food Pro premium processor in response to the all-natural food movement to better accommodate consumers who are devoted to healthy living. Beyond the extensive selection of products, Omega brings an unparalleled commitment to service to the juicing industry through a 5 to 15 year product warranty - a feature that blows typical two year warranties out of the water.
Recent Product Introductions
The VRT400, low speed masticating juicer, builds on the success of the VRT350 with a few added features. It's easier to assemble. Simply drop the juice bowl onto the body housing the motor and begin juicing! The Omega VRT400 also features a new juice tap and mixing function. All you need to do is close the spout and juice your favorite recipe. The juicer spins, or mixes the juice so you don't have to. Release the tap and out pours the fresh juice mixture. Drink up! The tap and auto-cleaning system also makes clean-up easier. Close the tap, run water through the juicer, and watch the auto cleaning system work like a windshield wiper. Open the tap and release the water. With the VRT400, juicing just got a whole lot easier!
The VRT350 revolutionized the low speed juicer market. Just ask our competition - they are following our lead and introducing vertical designs - a few years after we did! We sketched out the first vertical masticating juicer on a napkin and then shared it with our factory. The VRT350 raised the bar for juicer engineering and design. The decidedly vertical stance and contemporary design is complemented by a virtually indestructible ULTEM juicing screen that will withstand heavy duty juicing. The VRT is as compact as it is productive. Most juicers process at high speeds that destroy enzymes and cause juice to degrade quickly but the VRT350’s Low Speed Juicing System processes at 80 RPM. This prevents oxidation and allows juice to be stored for up to 72 hours without degradation. The VRT350 also features an innovative auto cleaning system that keeps the screen clear during juicing and increases overall efficiency. With the VRT350, form and function combine to give you the highest degree of extraction and the healthiest possible juice.
