As seems to be common with the Omega series of juicers. Consumers have a love / hate relationship with it, with no real middle ground to speak of.
And the 2.8 out of 5 stars average rating does it no favors, despite some absolutely glowing reviews numbers like that tend to turn off many customers. However, read below before you base your decision solely on that.
One of the most informative reviews available, mentioned that the Omega 4000 is superior to the 1000 for the most part.
But the 1000 is still a solid and effective machine. And had some notable advantages that set it apart from the 4000, due to the citrus juicing attachment which does a good job of dispensing pulp free citrus juice.
And the ability to use inexpensive filters for produce like apples, carrots and celery. And the 1000 and 4000 were both equal, in terms of actual output versus produce used.
The disadvantages however might be a bit off-putting. Especially for less experienced juicers, as the 1000 has a problem with doing a dance across your counter top.
This is because the machine functions in a way like a washing machine, and when it gets out of balance it throws the whole thing out of whack. Creating a racket and potentially spilling juice and pulp on your counter.
Another potential problem, is pulp clogging the the drum which traps all your juice inside the drum until you clear the clogs.
Overall, the Omega 1000 isn’t a bad machine. Provided you can put up with its quirks. However, for the money you may as well buy the 4000 which avoids most of these quirky issues but provides the same juice quantity and quality.
