Omega VRT400HDS Features and Product Details
Is it Easy to Use and Assemble?
Omega VRT400HDS is easy to assemble as long as you follow the included instructions and put all the parts together properly. You can assemble the parts following the steps described below.
At first insert extraction packing at bottom of the bowl hard enough into the pulp outlet and make sure the bowl outer groove aligns with the base properly. After that, assemble the parts in the order of bowl and then spinning brush, then strainer, then squeezing screw, and then hopper.
The hopper will not close if the parts are not assembled properly.
Cut your produce into smaller pieces to make it easier for the juicer to pull the produce into the auger. Place the pieces of fruits and vegetables into the feeding chute slowly and press with a pusher. To get healthy and more juice use fresh fruits and vegetables.
If you want to juice efficiently and effectively without getting clogged or jammed, cut the fibrous produce like celery, water parsleys in small sizes(1.5 inches), otherwise there is a chance of getting wrapped around the auger. Fruits with pits, hard seeds such as nectarines, peaches, mangoes, apricots, cherries, and plums must be pitted before juicing. And it is not recommended to use the appliance for grinding dry ingredients such as grains, coffee beans. It may cause a failure or part damage.
If it clogs in case, you can simply use the reverse function to try to back it up or press the produce by the pusher. And the suggestion is, do not put too much produce at a time, it will increase the chance of clogging. For an easy and efficient juicing process, feed the juicer consistently while juicing.
Is it Easy to Disassemble and Clean?
At first ensure, the motor stops completely and unplug the power cord. Unplug the power cord carefully and do not touch the power cord with wet hands. You can disassemble the machine by following these steps.
Unlock the bowl twisting counterclockwise. Take the screw and remove the strain. Then take the spinning brush out and disassemble the silicone brush.
Since the parts are not dishwasher safe, rinse each part with cleaning brush. Brush the inside and outside properly under running water.
Always try to wash the bowl set immediately after each use. If you skip this step or forget, the pulp may dry up and stick to the bowl set making it difficult to wash or disassemble. It may cause degradation in performance.
For sterilization, you can thoroughly wash parts by immersing in water diluted with a few drops of baking soda or natural wash-up liquids for about 30 minutes.
After cleaning each part allow them to air dry completely and store in a clean and safe place.
A high-speed juicer creates oxidation and produces heat during juicing. As a result, the juice gets oxidized and changes the flavor and taste of the juice. Masticating juicer is well known for the slow juicer and omega VRT400HDS extracts the juice only at 80 RPM.
It slowly crushes and squeezes the fruits and vegetables and produces high-quality juice preserving all the vitamins and enzymes.
When using a low-speed juicer, you can store the juice for up to 72 hours in the refrigerator without any degradation or juice separation.

#1. What is the difference between omega VRT350 and VRT400?
The main difference is the mixing juice tap function. VRT400 has a cap on the juice spout that will allow you to mix juice inside the juicer. It’s a little bit heavier and easier to assemble than VRT350. It comes with 15 years industry-leading warranty on the other hand VRT350 comes with 10 years warranty.
#2. What if the appliance doesn’t work?
Make sure the power cord is plugged in correctly. Also, check the hopper is assembled properly. If the hopper has not been properly locked in place, then the appliance will not work for safety reasons.
#3. What if the hopper doesn’t work?
Make sure there is not a lot of pulp left inside the bowl. And if you place any hard seeds or foreign substances that are not easily crushable in this case the hopper may not work.
#4. Is there any chance to leak the juice over the base?
If the extraction packing is not properly inserted it may leak the juice. So it happens, push the extraction packing tight enough. If it still leaks the juice, make sure the input ingredient is not too much compared to the size of the pulp outlet. Do not process heavy loads at a time, squeeze produce little by little.
The omega VRT400HDS is designed and engineered for health-conscious who want a greater variety in their daily juicing routine and this is a wonderful upgrade to the Omega VRT350. I highly recommend this juicer that will surely give you juice full of vitamins and enzymes, a boost of energy, and the best juicing experience.
