The Philips Micro Juicer and the Omega NC800 are masticating juicers. A masticating juicer is slower than the centrifugal juicer and works by using a rotating drilling device. This single gear has a helical screw blade that removes the pulp left after juicing the fruits and vegetables. The fruits and vegetables and inserted and the auger turns to squeeze the fruits. This juicing process is slow which helps in retaining the vitamins and minerals of the juice. The temperature of these machines is lower as the process of juicing is slower. Therefore the nutrients are also intact and there is no oxidation of the liquids.
Both the machines are efficient juicers that are easy to use and create healthy juices for good health.

Philips Micro Juicer vs. Omega NC800 Review
The Philips micro juicer is equipped with micro masticating technology that extracts the juice from the innermost core of the fruits/vegetables. The Quick clean and the pre-clean technologies make the cleaning process easier and the ‘no sieve’ design ensures no waste is clogged in the parts of the juicer. What is notable is the anti-drip button that ensures that the liquid does not drip to the surface and create a mess.
The Omega NC800 has an adjustable cap where the rate of pulp extraction from the juicer can be adjusted. High rates like 5 can be dialed for hard fruits and vegetables as a high setting will build more pressure and reduces the rate of pulp. Mastering the adjustment technique takes some time as users have to get used to operating the juicer. The Omega NC800 is a versatile juicer which comes with different nozzles. These nozzles can be changed for different functions like making pasta, butter, baby food, and soy milk. The juicer has integrated parts which can be easily detached and cleaned.
The juice accumulates into a glass and the waste neatly settles in another container. In the Philips juicer, the waste accumulates at the back while in the Omega NV800 the pulp also accumulates in the front. Mounting, removing, and cleaning processes are easy and simple in both the devices. The Omega NC800 can drip after the juicing is over while the Philips juicer stays neat and dry.
The Philips juicer makes some noise while in operation, while the Omega NC800 is a noiseless juicer.
Body and Shape
The Philips micro juicer is an elegant looking device weighing 11.6 pounds and 200W power. It is sleek and compact and looks nice on a kitchen top. All its detachable parts can be kept inside the pulp container and the juicer can be compactly stored away in minimal spaces. The Omega NC800 juicer is durable and well-built at 20 pounds and has a BPA-free plastic body finish.
Both the juicers are equipped with masticating technology that is aimed at slow juice extraction to retain the nutritional value of the juices. While conducting a practical juicing session, the Omega NC800 performed better and extracted more juice from the same amount of fruit/vegetable content. The Philips micro juicer produced a lesser amount of juice and the leftover pulp was still a little juicy. The Omega NC800 has various adjustment levels for different juices which could be a boon if understood well. The juices produced in both the juicers are devoid of froth which implies that there is no oxidation in the process of juicing. The minerals are intact and the juice is highly nutritious. The Philips mixer juicer takes slightly more time in the juicing process.
Both the products are priced in roughly the same range.
The Philips micro juicer is easy to clean and use. It looks nice and compact. The Omega NC800 produces more juice for the same amount of raw material provided for both juicers. Therefore, though the features, pricing, and functions of both the juicers are similar, the Omega NC800 scores more in output and performance. And most importantly the warranty, the Omega NC800 comes with a 15-year warranty, and the product is also acclaimed for its high quality and customer satisfaction. The Philips micro mixer lags behind yet again as it comes with a 1-year warranty.
