"is the whole fruit or vegtable used, peels and skins, no waste??"
I used the ancestor of this juicer since 1975. This model has a larger plunger opening so I no longer have to cut my carrots to fit. I have to fill the opening, however, or the carrots will go sideways and get stuck. I just make sure the group the veggies. It is quieter than the older model, and seems a little more powerful. It is easy to clean....

This juicer does not juice greens, pulpy fruits, or fleshy fruits. What it does juice are firm fruits and veggies, but it does so ineffectively. The pulp it leaves behind is full of juice. This product vibrates loudly as soon as you put fruit into it and after a few pieces it begins spinning out of control because it is easy to get it off center. Do not waste your money folks. Omega is also terrible when it comes to customer service for this product.Read More
I bought this juicer as a heal-inducing gift for my aging parents. I own a Breville, but was looking for something a little smaller and quicker to clean... my good friend owns the 9000 and recommended it. I bought the 1000. I set it up for them and gave them an introductory demonstration... not knowing how to use this style juicer, of course. Read the manual! It takes about 3 mins, and makes a difference. This is a centrifugal juicer, and the pulp remains in the bowl... I would say it gets 5-10% more juice than my beloved Breville. It also danced across my parents' kitchen like an 80's punk rocker that first time, as I overloaded it with fiber-y goodness. This is a fairly light-weight juicer, with a plastic base... not perfectly anchored, but definitely manageable once you know what you're doing. The feed chute (?), or veggie entrance, is quite small (more cutting to size), and the "plunger" is also plastic... it can ratchet inside the chute if the juicer is not balanced. Despite my poor and uninformed intro, my dad immediately took to shoving whatever veggies he could find through that little hole, and relishing the lovely liquid that resulted; it works very well. It only danced that first time, as my dad is a manual reader... and an eye roller. Pulp is dry. Juice receptacle and brush are NOT included, but a glass measuring cup and dish brush will do the trick. It's easy to take apart and put together, and blade disc is not connected to bowl, so there is less chance of injury than other designs. All in all, a very good purchase that will be used often.Read More
Questions & Answers
You can use as much of the fruit or vegetable as you would like. We would not suggest using the peels of some fruits, like oranges and grapefruit, because they could make your juice quite bitter.
"Does food come in contact with any other substance other than stainless steel?"
The food that is processed will only come in contact with the stainless steel.
