In general, missing valuable features included in the next generation juicer VSJ843 such as:
- Not as whisper quiet as VSJ843

We feel that while this is a good and very capable juicer, the improvements and differences in the newer model VSJ843, such as described under “The Bad” section, making it the best buy in this juicer “Style > Category”.
Additionally, if you intend to consistently juice mainly wheatgrass, you may want to consider evaluate juicers that can get even higher wheatgrass juice yields. Such as:
- The latest generation single auger vertical juicer: the Omega VSJ843 (model silver square: VSJ843QS, model silver round: VSJ843RS, model red square: VSJ843QR)
- The 8000 Series (horizontal single augers)
- Twin gear juicers (pricier option but gold standard premium especially for green juicing and purported even higher nutrition)
Is this Right for Me?
When it comes to selecting the right juicer, there is no one universal juicer that juices all fruit and vegetables equally the same. The different types, styles and category of juicers are optimized for some tasks more than others, so knowing what you want to juice most often, can help you find the best juicer to match your juicing intentions. Consider the following general guidelines.
- If you intend to do more fruit juicing, or mixed produce juicing recipes than only leafy greens or only hard produce, than you may want to look at the vertical juicers.
- If you intend to juice mostly greens, and would appreciate extra non-juicing functionality in the appliance such as being able to extract pasta shapes, make baby food, grind coffee and more, you may prefer horizontal single gear juicers, such as one of the 8000 series. However keep in mind, that if you you anticipate not having an “auto feed” operation and that having to continually feed produce and plunge could be boring, tiresome, physically straining or could deter you from juicing often, then evaluate: vertical single augers.
- If you intend to juice mostly leafy greens and wheatgrass, value even higher nutrition density and have the budget for the next level up in premium juice extracting, than a Twin Gear Juicer (horizontal juicer with two augers), may be for you.
