The Omega Juicer 500
The Omega Model 500 is built the same as the Model 1000. The only difference is the Model 500 has a Plastic bowl instead of Stainless Steel. This unit is just as durable as the 1000, just a little more affordable. Our family has built this same basic style juicer for over 40 years and we still manufacture the Model 500 in Southern California. The Classic Looks of the Model 500 will look attractive in any kitchen, either home or business. The simple touch of White Lustran Plastic is a look that will never change.
The Model 500 is stylish, durable, dependable, efficient and very easy to clean. The operation of this machine is based on several industry leading designs.
Motor: Our 1/3 Horsepower 3600-Rpm General Electric( Induction Motor is quietest motor of this style juicer. These "brushless" motors have very few moving parts that rub together which make them very dependable. We have used these motors for the last sixteen years (16) and we don't get returns for defective motors.
Filters: The Omega Model 500 can be used with "optional" non-bleached cellulose fiber filters. These filters will give you a true pulp free juice and let you clean up in seconds. If the filters are not used the clean up is still easy, but takes a little more time. There will also be some pulp in the juice if the filters are not used, but the same as most other juicers.
Surgical Stainless Steel: The stainless parts are comprised of Surgical Stainless Steel. All of the Stainless parts are either polished or sandblasted to make the unit look nice and at the same time make it easy to clean.
Basket: Each one of our baskets is hand balanced, just like the wheels on your car, to achieve virtually no vibration while juicing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. The Basket is very open so it is easy to clean.
Blade: The Stainless Steel Blade efficiently chews up fruits and vegetable without wearing down. When you hold the blade you'll appreciate its weight knowing how durable it will be. The blade has a plastic ring on the outer edge of its underside that has little feet. These feet help the blade float. The floating of the blade will let the motor keep up its Rpm's while you push down on your fruit or vegetable. This is but one more reason why this juicer has very little vibration.
Bowl: The large Monsato Lustran Plastic Bowl is very open, so it is easy to clean.
Spring Clutch: The little white knob that holds the blade in place is called the Spring Clutch Nut. This Spring Clutch Nut allows the blade to float. It only has to be put on finger tight. No tools are needed to change or clean this system.
Rubber Feet: Your new juicer will stand on a dozen evenly spaced feet. These feet are variable in height, which will help the unit keep from "walking" across your counter top. Yet soft enough to give the juicer traction while not marking up your counter top.
Latch Arms: Our cantilever style Latch Arms were a first in the industry. This allows for easy assembly and disassembly. Whether you're a strong athlete or suffering from arthritis, these Latch Arms will make it very easy to use this juicer on a daily basis.
Feed Chute: The chute of this juicer is large enough to accommodate large pieces of fruits and vegetable. The larger chutes of other juicers may slow down the motor when too large of an item is pushed down.
Customer Service: Omega Products, Inc.'s Customer Service is second to none. If you or your customers have a question please do not hesitate to call.
Warranty: The Omega Model 500 carries a ten- (10) year warranty
