Omega BL630W Customer Reviews
Product Code: 191-BL630W
Excellent & Beautiful August 30, 2012 Excellent & Beautiful The 3 HP Omega BL630 Series Blender combines the power, durability, and capacity you need while turning out tantalizing combinations of delicious drink blends. Commercial construction coupled with its precision controls make the Omega blender the go to tool whether blending for business or pleasure. We have purchase this unit directly from OMEGA JUICER'S , as OMEGA sals them also in it's 240V version for outside US use which was what we need The unit is absolutely gorges and beautiful , and to my opinion: the best color would be the WHITE and the SILVER. the RED is too much strong for a kitchen . the Red color look good as in the picture but it does not fit in reality. in most of the kitchen to my opinion it will be like an "Alien" object. Disturbing object. WARRANTY: the warranty for this unit is 10 YEARS !!! What a nice thing to know that you can enjoy from this unit for so You have: ON/OFF BUTTON on the right back side of the unit The PULSE BUTTON (front lower right button) gives a fast high speed short blend of few seconds and then it stops automatically . If you want more PULSE - you have to press the PULSE BUTTON again . The INFINITY BUTTON (front lower left side) gives you continuously blending without stop , until you stop it ! The ON BUTTON (front top left side) lets you operate the blending together with the TIMER BUTTON , which means that you can set the timer to the time you want ( from 1 second and up to 6 minutes) and you simply chose the preferable time on the timer and then you hit the ON BUTTON and thats it , the unit will works for the time you chose and then stop automatically . The carafe: the carafe (container) is well build and sufficient heavy . it has beautiful dark grey color with measurements . The top seal of the carafe is also very well made and beautiful + there is a hatch for pure ingredients during operation . The carafe can be placed easy in the fridge , The BLADES in the carafe are Stainless Steel Blade The BLADES are not too sharp , and that is very good to my opinion as it gives many years of work without the need to replace the carafe . No Plunger Needed for that carafe , as in other blenders like vitamix or blendtec . You can purchase carafe in the next sizes from OMEGA: 64oz or 82oz (cost: $160,00 USD) Carafe Material: Unbreakable 64 oz. Tritan Copolyester Container TO MY OPINION , THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND COMFORTABLE USEING BLENDER ON THE MARKET TODAY . Maybe the VITAMIX is a bit stronger unit , but you will not need that little bit more extra power anyway for your home use or even for your Business , and the VITAMIX is Bulky and cumbersome ? On the bottom , you will find a button for RESET the unit in case of OVERLOAD (you don't need to wait 24 hours) Before purchase this unit , i was Debated between the OMEGA BL630 to the BREVILLE COMBO BJB840 JUICER+BLENDER The BREVILLE has a glass carafe (which is very good) but its very very heavy ! The BREVILLE is made from stainless still , very beautiful , not noisy , and it has 6 blades . The BREVILLE has only 1 year warranty , it has 5 speeds , and you can replace the blades for a new ones in cost of $60,00 USD The BREVILLE COMES WITH A FAST JUICER all together in cost of $499,00 USD And if you purchase the BREVILLE BJB840 from EUROPE then you will get it with 1800 watt power ! (in the US it comes with 1000 watt only) THE BREVILLE DOES NOT HAVE RESET BUTTON. IF OVERLOAD - YOU HAVE TO WAIT 24 HOURS BEFORE OPERATE AGAIN , AND IN SOME CASES THE MOTOR CAN BE BURN AND FINISHED ! In the end , i chose OMEGA It is very simple and comfortable for use , it is so beautiful an so well build (OMEGA put a lot of thought into it) I think that a lot of people purchase VITAMIX or BLENDTEC because it has Famous Name , and they pay more for it . But in this case , to my opinion - they don't get more at all ! OMEGA Doing juicers for many years , and they are well known in the market. In the BLENDERS FILD they are quite new , not for long , But i think they defiantly deserved for all the credit and even for a "Nobel Prize" for making this fantastic unit which i am so pleased with. When you will have it at home , you will understand exactly what i am talking about and how good this unit is. I made huge research before purchase this blender ! I checked all the best brands on the market , i made phone call's to stores all over the US and EUROPE (even to Australia) And i checked and read all the possible reviews including hundreds of youtube vids of all the blenders brands ! I did it first for my self , and now i am glad to write here my Impression for all the customers in order to help you make the right choice . Don't purchase other brand just because it comes with a big Recipes Book. purchase the book apart. Don't purchase other brand just because your neighbor has a different famous blender brand , as to my opinion any other brand will not give you more then this one , and you will not be more satisfied with other brand then with this one . WHERE THE OMEGA BLENDER MADE ? I'v heard them Manufacture is actually located in KOREA , but on the box it said CHINA. We have made a research and we have find out that Omega Manufactured in KOREA. The same manufacture in Korea , made the same units to the US MARKET under the name of OMEGA with the highest standards , And for Europe and all the rest of the world they make the same Units under the name of OSCAR For example: The Omega Juicer 8006 with 15 years warranty , is the exact OSCAR 1000 with 20 years of warranty ! And the OSCAR 1000 is even improved model over the OMEGA 8006 ! This Korean Company made very well products, and they are committed by contract to made all them models units for OMEGA under the US high standards market , so them omega and oscar products are not less good then the Vitamix or Blendtec or any other US Brands . OMEGA IS AN AMERICAN COMPANY But Today , with the hard economical situation , many company's move them factory to the Far East , and i am glad that Omega did it without losing quality ! Pice of advise: GO AND FIND A STORE WHERE YOU CAN SEE THIS UNIT WORKING , AND THEN DECIDE . The OMEGA BLENDER BL630 is new on the market , i think since MAY - 2012 , and Unfortunately not a lot of people know about it . I am glad that i had the opportunity to review this item over here in KATOM , and i hope that my review will truly help other people to purchase this Extraordinary well build beautiful blender . Thank You Etai R.
