Omega VRT350 vs. Champion Juicer Review
Finding the best masticating juicer with a large chute is a pretty nice goal for people who want their juice fresh, healthy, and fast. Many juicers, including some models of slow juicers, usually have narrow or smaller feeder chutes. Juicing enthusiasts appreciate masticating juicers with large feeder tubes. I think it’s a feature that will definitely help save preparation time.
I have personally tried masticating juicer models that have slim/smaller feeder chutes and ones that have larger/wider chutes. I have found that the larger chutes cut down a huge amount of prep time since I no longer have to cut my fruits into smaller pieces. I can grab a whole fruit and toss it in with no worries.
There are a couple of masticating juicers that fits the description nicely. They are the Champion Commercial Juicer and the Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer. I can recommend both juicers as the best masticating juicer with large chute, but I have to choose only one. So, I would prefer to put down a couple of masticating juicer reviews and tell you what I like about each of these two models.
Champion G5-PG-710 Commercial Juicer
- Really Huge Feeder Chute
You wouldn’t believe the size of the chute on this Champion Juicer. At almost 2 inches in diameter, at first I tried a single average-sized carrot. I noticed there was still room for more so I grabbed a couple more carrots of almost the same size. Well, one was slightly bigger but all three of them went right in easily. Now that is what you call a really large feeder tube/chute.
- Well Built, Good Design
I particularly like the unassuming design of this juicer. It compliments my other countertop appliances. It’s a bit bulky considering the small space. Clean up isn’t an issue since I was able to take the thing apart in a minute and the parts are all dishwasher safe.
Omega VRT350 Low-Speed Juicer Best Features
Vertical Cylinder Design
There are plenty of reasons why I love the Omega VRT350. One, this Omega juicer is outfitted with a vertical cylinder. This is a significant improvement to the previous Omega masticating juicer models I have tried. They made the feeder chute on the VRT350 significantly bigger. Note that it isn’t as big as the feeder cylinder on the Breville 800JEXL.
- Easy Clean-up
I think the self-cleaning feature of the Omega VRT350 is quite a gem. This feature keeps the filter clog-free. I can go from one fruit to another without having any lag time when cleaning.
Best Masticating Juicer with Large Chute: Final Verdict
Remember that I love both models. I like the Omega VRT350 for all the great features it has. But I just have to say I think the bigger feeder tube on the Champion Juicer wins it for this category. The extra-large chute makes things easier and a lot faster. That is my bet for best masticating juicer with large chute.

Erratum: Our editorial team has mistakenly compared the Breville 800jexl vs. the Omega Vert 350 as the best masticating juicer with the largest chute when in fact the Breville is a centrifugal juicer. We would like to apologize for this mistake. Thanks to Mark for pointing this out. – Jack
