Rated 5 out of 5 by Eloise Still going strong after 3 years!
I use my juicer at least 5 times a week and it is still going strong. I have recommended it to several friends. The only part I've replaced are the silicone wipers (I flushed them down the sink by mistake) - they fell under the warranty and were replaced free of charge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chris_ First Juicer I've Owned and Happy But....
Being that this is the first juicer I've owned I have nothing to compare it to except itself. My first impressions matched up with the Youtube videos I had watched. Lost of juice, a little pulp and dry extracted pulp. Other than the clean up time I was very happy. I've used it sporadically, probably not more than 30 times since I've owned it.
The issue I have had the last few time using it is large-ish pieces of carrots, apples, and a few other items not getting juiced. When I start the clean-up and pull out the auger there will be chunks on it and the basket. I've followed all the guidelines about feeding different types of fruits and vegetables not all at once but in small varied groups and haven't changed my process since owning it. I've had no other problems. I've only ever used the finer mesh basket.
Overall I really enjoy the juice I get from the VRT350 but I am concerned about it's longevity.

My wife and I purchased this juicer four months ago, as we wanted a healthier diet. We use it every day. The slow speed produces much better juice quality than our previous high speed juicer. However since we purchased the unit, the juicing screen has broken twice. The great news is that Omega supports its products and provided this $80 part both times without question, the bad news is that the screen broke using it for the products it was designed for. I would like to have a heavier duty juicer. Also, I would like to be able to extract more juice from carrot pulp as some of the twin auger juicer achieve. Overall I rated the juicer a four due to the excellent customer support and quality of juice, I did not rate it a 5 as I had the two breakdowns in such a short time.

after year and half of using it. the vegetable pulp stay in the machine and stock. i need to open the machine, clean it and start again, in the beginning it was working fine and the pulp easily getting out of the machine. usually i clean with mild soap and soft sponge or using the brush that come with it

Purchased this juicer for almost 2 months and been using it every weekend. Very easy to assemble and use. Also easy to clean despite some other reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NataliaGriffin1 I love it
I researched a bit on what I wanted - a juicer that keeps good nutrient levels and that juices slowly. I decided to go with this one despite some bad reviews I read. I am glad that I did! Its so good and easy to use.
Like anything - just take care of it, wash it after each use - dry it...its been great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RCII So far so good!
Recently purchased and it's done it's job. Juice is good and clean up is easy. Pulp gets into the juice most of the time but I'm not really concerned because it's such a small amount. Usually make enough juice to fill the catcher so a little pulp is ok in my opinion. All in all I'm very satisfied with this product. Use it everyday and it's going strong.

I bought this juicer about two years ago and juice in phases. I'll do it 5 days a week for a few months and then not use it for the next 9...that type of thing. I would guess I've used it less than 100 times.
It's had problems since the beginning, making juice that is consistently full of sizable pulp that has to be choked down. It was like this till about two weeks ago when the machine stopped working properly...now, somehow, it makes better juice.
As far as cleaning, I agree with the people who say it continually becomes harder and harder and then impossible to keep it clean. The buildup is insane. I clean it meticulously right after use and it's still a problem.
The plastic parts are breaking, the basket metal is bending, the wipers outside the basket have stopped spinning, and now finally, the motor seems like it is days away from flat out stopping. Spending $400 on a juicer and getting 100 uses out of it makes no sense. At that price I might as well just go to a juice store every day, considering the grocery cost and the time involved.
There are problems with every juicer, so the little issues are to be expected, but thinking that I have to spend another $300-400 or more just to continue juicing is pretty awful.
