Dear readers, the task today is a special one because an exciting and interesting device is waiting for our test. The Omega MM900HDS is known as a specialist in celery juice.
Juicing celery yourself is trendy – today you can read all about this in the Omega MM900HDS review whether the Omega juicer is actually an expert in this area, or whether the marketing department has just positioned it particularly cleverly.
The Omega MM900HDS is a slow juicer, i.e. a masticating juicer. The deliberately slow processing of the pressed material has a positive effect on the processing quality.
In particular, less heat and oxidation should ensure a higher nutrient and vital substance content in the juice.

Slow juicers, sometimes also called cold press juicers, crush the fruit and vegetables instead of smashing and cutting them up, as is the case in centrifugal juicers.

The assembly of the MM900HDS low speed masticating celery juicer is particularly easy, quick, and intuitive. Neither a lot of force is necessary, nor do you have to consult the operating instructions and assembly aid.
Of course, that doesn’t do any harm, especially since the instructions for commissioning are very clear:
The parts can be put into each other intuitively, plastic elements, e.g. on the sieve, are partially perforated and thus fit into each other quite easily.
So nothing stands in the way of quick use, and of course, this also helps with regular cleaning, and you can clean all the parts individually.

How to Use the Omega MM900HDS
Once set up, you can turn on the juicer with the switch on the back of the device. You can use reverse gear with the same switch (via button).
This is useful in order to transport pulp and pulp residues in the screw back up or back in the event of a “jam”. To avoid a jam in the screw you need to put the ingredients in the correct order. With a little experience, you can quickly get the hang of it.
The filling opening is sufficiently large at 4cm. At least rough pre-cutting is necessary and generally useful in order to increase the processing quality in the press.
An important component is the pomace control at the top of the juicer. There are two attachments here, each of which can be screwed onto the pomace outlet. A unique selling point on the part of Omega Juicers is the attachment especially for celery juice (with green seal).
Ultimately, to control the pressure that is applied to the screw and the screen you can use the attachments. The green attachment is for fibrous ingredients, herbs, and leafy greens, as well as for celery.
Here I have had the best experiences with an almost completely closed screw in terms of the processing quality and the juice yield. It depends on the consistency of the ingredients which attachment in which setting is the best choice.
Omega MM900HDS Review & Test
Of course, I was particularly curious about the results when juicing celery in the practical test, after all the flagship of the MM 900 HDS. Equipped with the special pomace regulation for everything herbaceous and celery, it went to work and I was not disappointed. The result for celery was remarkable, no other juicer in this price range has such a juice yield. Even better results can only be expected from significantly more expensive juicers such as the Super Angel Juicer.
Filling the Omega juicer is easy to do. It makes sense to pre-cut the perennials a little and to alternate generally harder pieces with leaves, the herbaceous upper part of the perennial, and any other ingredients such as carrots and apples.
The freshly squeezed celery juice was very smooth, had hardly any residue, and tasted full-bodied – a perfect result.
Even with very hard vegetables, the juicer showed no nakedness and processed everything that I put into it.
However, once the cap to regulate the marc loosened itself, a turn of the thread would probably have been useful. Ultimately, the right attitude is important and you get a feel for it quickly.
With the pomace, you notice the special features of the juicing technology, which represents a real added value compared to centrifugal juicers. The effectiveness is very high, the pomace, i.e. the juicing residues, is very dry – the juice is where it belongs, namely in the juice collecting container.
Only with very soft types of fruit and vegetables such as cucumbers was the result not ideal because a relatively large amount of pulp remained in the screw.
The reverse gear and the tamper help to achieve a better result. In addition, you can alternate between adding hard material to these ingredients, which further improves the juicing process.
When removing the juice container, make sure that at least one drop will fall on your kitchen shelf. A valve and a cap would have been nice here. But this is not a real defect and handling is generally easy.
How To Clean the Omega MM900HDS Juicer?
When it comes to cleaning this device benefits from the fact that it is easy to assemble and dismantle. It is easy to take apart all parts and clean them individually under warm running water.
This is the optimal cleaning procedure that should be carried out after every juicing session. A kitchen brush helps for some parts and the sieve – as with any juicer – usually needs the most attention.
The cleaning brush included with the Omega MM900 helps immensely when cleaning the screen. You can easily get from inside and outside to the places where the pulp and fibers are stubbornly stuck.
I also find my bottle brush with plastic lamellas to be ideal – when inserted from the inside, the pressed material is pressed through the sieve, where it can then be easily brushed off.
In general, a container with warm water and a little washing-up liquid helps with cleaning, so that all parts can be soaked for a short time. This is particularly helpful with the pressing screw. Even if a lot of pulp is ejected, residues will remain on the screw.
Conclusion: Cleaning a juicer is actually never fun, but of course it is necessary for the regular enjoyment of fresh juice.
I am therefore pleased that cleaning the MM900 is simple and easy. Quick cleaning is quick and easy and all parts and locations are easy to reach for intensive cleaning.

Cleaning the OmegaMM900HDS Juicer
It’s certainly a selling point and we actually asked about it a lot. Of course, it is useful to be able to put the dirty parts of the juicer in the dishwasher.
This is possible with the MM900HDS low speed masticating celery juicer, although cleaning in the upper drawer is recommended. From my point of view, nothing speaks against subjecting the parts to such a cleaning procedure every now and then.
In general, however, I advise against a juicing cycle in the dishwasher. The chemicals used and the higher temperatures are simply too tough for the materials. That is why I recommend quick but gentle cleaning by hand.
The MM900 shows its strengths with celery and all medium-soft, fiber, and juice-rich ingredients.
The 80 revolutions per minute ensure gentle but fast processing. The results are first-class in this price range. The device is quick to set up and ready for use, which is a real advantage and added value, especially when it comes to cleaning.
All in all, the device is an asset for everyone who focuses on fresh juices and especially celery juice. Using the MM900 is fun in everyday practice.
