The NC1000HDS is Omega’s newest addition to its line of premium heavy-duty nutrition system featuring a clean, angled design. It’s about time for the brand to embrace a new design language.
Aside from its looks, the Omega NC1000HDS is also packed with a powerful commercial motor. It’s the heart of the beast, which enables it to process all types of fruits and vegetables.
For a premium juicer, it’s still quite affordable. Pricing wise, it’s on the same ballpark as Omega’s line of vertical masticating juicers such as the VSJ843Q and VSJ843R series despite being more efficient.
It would be a no brainer to pick the Omega NC1000HDS over those older products.

Omega NC1000HDS Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
Operating the Omega NC1000HDS is very straightforward, just like its siblings. To set it up for juicing, you need to assemble ten parts; this includes the pulp and juice container. I think it will take you less than a minute to assemble if you’re not new to juicing.
Is it Easy to Clean?
Thankfully the parts of NC1000 HDS are top-rack dishwasher safe. So yes, maintenance is not an issue at all. However, from time to time, you might want to wash your juicer thoroughly, and here’s how you do it.
- Fill your sink with warm water (provided that it’s clean)
- Put a teaspoon of baking soda
- Or add one to two drops of dishwashing soap
- Soak the parts for 30 minutes (except for the motor base)
- Then run those parts in your dishwasher
- Let it dry and store it
To make your life even easier, wash your juicer as soon as you’re done using it. This will save you from dealing with residue build-up, particularly the juicing screen.
Horizontal masticating juicing machines doesn’t disappoint when it comes to juice quality. They are highly efficient at extracting juice even for the most challenging produce like leafy greens. On top of that, it produces dryer pulp, which translates to higher juice yield. So, in the long run, it’s going to pay dividends for your health.
Aside from being a dependable juice extractor, the Omega NC1000HDS also wears many hats. With the right accessory, it can be your very own food processor, grinder, nut butter maker, extrude pasta, make natural desserts, soy, and almond milk maker, and so on. There is virtually no end to what you can do with an Omega juicer.
What Kinds of Produce Can Omega NC1000HDS Juice?
Being highly versatile, this masticating juicer can take on any type of produce. It can juice dense produce, soft ones, citruses, and leafy greens. Also, it can also help you make soy and almond milk.
Dense produce includes apple, turmeric, carrots, fennel, broccoli, watermelon, pineapple, pumpkin, sweet potato, pepper, celery, beets, bitter gourd, cauliflower, cilantro, asparagus, yakon, pear, garlic, cucumber, and ginger.
Leafy greens like basil, collard greens, peppermint, moringa, dandelion greens, spinach, cabbage, wheatgrass, lettuce, brussels sprout, parsley, pine tree needles, kale, spring onion, and beet greens are no match for this machine. Horizontal masticating juice extractors are perfect for making green juices.
All types of juicers can process citrus fruits such as grapefruit, mandarin, lemon, lime, tangerine, and orange and so does the NC1000HDS.
If you’re planning to puree soft produce like kiwifruit, pomegranate, peach, tomato, strawberry, papaya, avocado, mango, melon, grapes, blackberry, and cranberries, this machine has an accessory for that exact purpose.
Last but not least, with the same attachment, you can make non-dairy milk alternatives with it. That’s how versatile it is, and that is why Omega calls it a nutrition system. It’s not just built for juicing.
