The Omega Juice Cube is internally, a standard horizontal masticating juicer. However, externally, it is the definition of a unique juicer. Attractive design has been the focus of most manufacturers in recent years, but the Juice Cube instead markets itself towards practicality, with a design that allows it to act as its own storage box. This design isn’t just useful though, it’s fun and while it may not feel like something from outer space its style has an enjoyable, slightly rustic feel to it. This juicer isn’t all about the design though, it also has good performance, able to produce a solid yield, especially when working with leafy greens and hard vegetables.
It’s quite easy to see that the main talking point of this juicer is its design. The Cubes main party trick is being able to act as its own storage box. The modular design of this juicer is superior to all other current storage options and provides an effective way to keep all parts and accessories in one place. When fully closed it becomes a sleek cube that is very understated, allowing it to blend into the background.
This device comes with a collection of homogenising accessories. This includes a homogenising blank to be used in place of the juicing screen and a selection of nozzles. These accessories allow this juicer to produce a range of different foodstuffs, including: sorbets, nut butters, baby food and pasta.
The performance of this device can easily be compared to one of the most popular juicers in the world, the Omega 8004/6. It produces a high yield thanks to its dual stage augur system and like most horizontal juicers it’s best as extracting juice from tougher ingredients, such as leafy greens.
In general, this is a nice little device. The unique design is handy and isn’t some simple gimmick, it genuinely solves a problem that many juicers suffer from. In terms of performance it’s as good as any other horizontal juicer at the same price point and could well serve as an alternate option to the 8004/6. If you want a practical juicer over a flashy one, then this model fits the bill better than any other.
