What Is The Difference Between SKG vs. Omega Slow Juicers?
- As an appliance, both SKG and Omega are the same, they are slow juicer (also known as masticating juicers). However, SKG works with a slower speed than the Omega, 60 RPM vs. 80 RPM. Which means, the SKG will yield more juice with less oxidation.
- Design wise, the SKG is a vertical juicer, which means it takes less counter top space. The Omega is a horizontal juicer that could take up a lot of space on your counter top, and it’s certainly harder to stash away.
- The SKG has a wide 3” chute, which means, you don’t have to cut your ingredients to small pieces before hand, eliminating the dreaded prep time. The Omega juicer has a small chute that requires you cut down your ingredients before hand.
- One of the biggest advantages an Omega juicer has is the fact that it is a multi-purpose appliance. It’s not only a juicer, but thanks to its attachments, it can make nut butters, nut milks, it can make pasta, grind coffee beans and more. The SKG is mainly a juicer only, but has an attachment for turning frozen fruit into a delicious sorbet.
- The spout on the SKG has a cap that keeps any juice from dripping. The Omega juicer does not have this, so you should expect some counter space mess and juice dripping.
Which One To Buy?
Of course, like we always say, the ultimate choice is yours to make. But we like to point out a few things to help you out with your decision:
- At first glance, you might think that the Omega gives you a lot of value for your money because of its multi-functionality. But do you really need all these functions out of your juicer? It’s all great and can be helpful for finishing up tasks in your kitchen, but also, using the same appliance for many different tasks could lead to a shorter lifespan of that appliance.
- The SKG Juicer, although it’s nearly at the same price as the Omega, but can only function as juicer, has a better built and more modern design. It is slow, so it yields more juice, and because of its large chute, there’s little to no prep time. So you’ll be saving in your grocery shopping, save on prep time and do less clean up.
