View Full Version : Hurom Slow Juicer

Does anyone have experience with this juicer? It looks really fantastic.
There are also several videos out there on youtube (a few by Matt Monarch).
I already have a greenstar, and it works well for veggies. I have a breville for fruits, but really don't like it, so was looking for something that could do everything well and only have one juicer.

Looks like a nice juicer, but the pulp doesn't seem to be dryer than from Omega 8006. I don't have experience with Green Star, but isn't Green Star a very good juicer? I heard that it is a pain to clean, but if you don't mind that -what's the point buying other one? Unless you can easily afford it.

Yes, there's a couple discussions on here about it-also under the Omega Vert name. I tried it out and loved it more than any other juicer because it's very very easy to juice compared to the others. The cleanup is also quick.
Not sure if the Hurom has updated theirs yet, but the Vert now has a pivot screw to hold the pulp ejection plug in place. That was one of the biggest problems with it because you have to remember to remove it when cleaning, make sure it doesn't get lost (mine almost got destroyed in the garbage disposal) and make sure to put it back. The thing was so tiny so it was easy for these things to happen.

It looks like the best all-around juicer. I'm ordering the Omega VRT 330. I'll then be able to downsize from two juicers, because it looks really good at doing stuff like apples/carrots/cukes AND greens and wheatgrass.
I'll get rid of my centrifugal juicer , but keep my Samson ---er maybe...we'll see how often I end up using it once I get the VRT....

thanks for the input ... I think I'll go with the Hurom since it is on sale right now and it is virtually the same as the Omega .. (they are made by the same folks). Hopefully they have updated the pulp ejection thing ... glad you warned me about it.
I'll keep my greenstar for a while to see if I ever use it again ...but am definitely getting rid of the Breville. The greenstar is nice, but doesn't do fruit well, and I want a juicer that can handle it all.

I have a Hurom and love it.
The pulp ejection plug is connected with a screw, so the problem in the previous models has been fixed. I am still very careful when I wash it out, but the screw keeps the plug connected.
I got this juicer because (a) I wanted green juice and (b) and I have almost zero counter space and it has a small footprint. I really like it a lot for both those reasons and am very glad I bought it. It works really well for juicing greens (I don't do wheatgrass so can't comment on that, but it juices every other kind of green you can name, plus herbs like parsley and cilantro) and it takes up far less room than the Champion juicer I have (and will now be giving away).

Terry, Where you getting it and how much? Inquiring minds want to know!

I usually offer the best price on the Omega Vert if you want that one. :) I've only heard good things regarding Omega's customer service (if you call/email regarding anything).
Glad that screw is on both of them.

My local guy is giving it (Omega VRT) to me for $295. Can you beat that? It's being shipped to him, so no shipping....but again, he's local. No prob if you can't. You've gotta make a living!

I actually ordered the Hurom on line for $329 .... I cruised around and that was the going price everywhere. Sorry Dimond - wish I would have known you have the Omega for good prices. I ended up ordering it on amazon -- I've had really good luck getting things through them.
Wow MaryKay -- what an amazing price on the Omega VRT -- Good On Ya!
Good to know the problem the the ejection screw is fixed. Thanks raw librarian!
Now that it is ordered, I'm impatient to get it. The greenstar is a great juicer, but it just doesn't do juicy fruits well at all, so if I want those, I need to use my breville -- which I really don't like all that well.
So, when the Hurom arrives -- the Breville and the Champion (yes, I have one of those, too) are going to be sold. I'll hang on to the greenstar cause it homogenize stuff really well for burgers and things like that. I've used it for 5 years and am kinda attached to it.
Lately I've been craving juice rather than green smoothies -- I don't have a clue why. I used to make a smoothie every morning without fail -- but the past few days I've been doing green juice instead. I try to listen to what my body wants. So, I'll be juicing up a storm when the Hurom arrives!

As a followup to this ... I rec'd the Hurom Juicer. I LOVE IT!!! Works exactly like the videos show ... stuff goes thing simply by dropping it in the chute, no pushing, juice is great ... and cleanup is a breeze.
So glad I ordered it!!!
