The Omega Cold Press 365 juicer is a new release juicer for 2020. Priced under $150, the Omega Cold Press 365 juicer competes with masticating juicers at the lower end of the market.
It is also known by its model number, Omega H3000D.
Is the Omega juicer under $150 a good buy? Let’s take a look at its features to see how it compares to other juicers on the market under $150…
Omega Juicer Warranty
The first thing that jumped out at us, was that Omega offer a 1 year limited warranty on the H3000D juicer.
We are quite accustomed to seeing 10 to 15 year warranties on Omega juicers. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with the cold press 365 juicer.
About the Omega Cold Press 365 Juicer
The concept behind the Omega Cold Press 365 juicer is it compact and affordable.
A good introduction to the Omega juicer range, at a price that fits with most budgets.
Here is the short introductory video by Omega:
At first glance, there doesn’t seem anything special about the Omega Cold Press 365 juicer.
The 1 year warranty isn’t jumping out and saying buy me, particularly when you can purchase juicers such as the Koios B5100 which offers a 10 year warranty on the motor and 3 year warranty on the parts for around the same price.
The run time for the Omega juicer is up to 10 minutes of continuous juicing. For most people, this shouldn’t be a problem making your morning cup of juice.
If you juice in bulk, you will need to wait at least 20 minutes for the Omega juicer to cool down before you continue juicing.
The plastic parts of the juicer are dishwasher safe. Omega make no mention of whether the plastic parts are BPA free, however, they do note that they may stain and discolor over time, depending on which fruits and vegetables you use. This is common, and not something to worry about.
The Omega Cold Press Juicer Offers Extra Functions
On further investigation of the Omega Cold Press 365 juicer however, it seems this little machine offers more than just juicing.
With an additional attachment package, you can also use this juicer to slice and shred foods. For example, shredding cabbage for a coleslaw, or slicing carrots. This attachment needs to be purchased separately.
There is also another attachment to make sorbets, a common feature of the higher end Omega juicers. You will also need to purchase this attachment separately, if you like to make sorbets with frozen fruits, as well as juicing fresh fruits and vegetables.
At the time of writing, these attachments are not showing on the Omega website to purchase, nor could we find them on Amazon. The Omega H3000D manual refers to these parts available to purchase separately.
We have contacted Omega to ask about these attachments and will update this post when we have more information.
Omega Juicer Replacement Parts
One of the things we like the most about Omega juicers is they make replacement parts for their juicers. This includes the Cold Press 365 juicer.
Replacement parts range from $12 to $35 for the cold press juicer. The replacement auger is the most expensive part to replace, at $35.
Here is a link to replacement parts available to purchase on the Omega website.
Omega Cold Press 365 vs Omega CNC80
The next Omega juicer up in price from the Cold Press 365, is the Omega CNC80. You may also find an S or R on the end (ie: CNC80S or CNC80R). This refers to the color of the juicer. Silver or Red.
The CNC80 costs under $250 on Amazon. For less than $100 more, you get:
- A 15 year warranty with the Omega CNC80 compared to 1 year warranty.
- A complete nutrition center – makes sorbets, nut butters, grinds coffee, spices etc. These features are standard on the CNC80, whereas you need to buy additional parts to make sorbets with the Cold Press 365.
- Spin Speed of 80 RPM for the Omega CNC80 compared to 90-110RPM for the Cold Press 365.
- Smaller footprint – The CNC80 measures 16.4 inches x 6.3 inches x 12.4 inches. In comparison, the Cold Press 365 measures 17.1 inches x 12.4 inches x 10 inches.
- There is less than 1 pound weight difference between the two juicers.
Is the Omega Cold Press 365 Juicer a Good Buy?
If you want to stick with the Omega brand, we feel the Omega CNC80 is a better buy. It has been around for much longer, offers versatility with multifunction abilities, and comes with the 15 year warranty.
In comparison, the Omega Cold Press 365 is a new release Omega juicer. It’s the first in the “affordable” line of Omega juicers and the 12 month warranty doesn’t leave us reassured.
It may well be just as good as the other Omega juicers, but only time will tell. Without Omega standing behind their product with a decent warranty, we feel purchasing this juicer would be a bit of a risk.
Most of the consumer reviews on Amazon received the juicer for free, which isn’t a good sign either…
The Omega brand and replacement parts are the pros of this juicer.
There are a couple of other juicers that stand out to us in the same price range as the Omega Cold Press 365 that offer 10 year warranties. These are:
The Jocuu Juicer is in the same price range as the Omega Cold Press 365, yet offers a 10 year warranty on the motor and 3 year warranty on the parts. This is a far better deal than the Omega 365, with the 1 year warranty.
The downside here is Jocuu doesn’t offer replacement parts for sale, however, if anything goes wrong within the first 3 years these parts should be replaced under warranty.

We’ve been raving about the Koios Juicer for some time now and with good reason. Priced under $150, the Koios Juicer offers a 10 year warranty on the motor and 3 year warranty on parts.
Like Jocuu, Koios don’t have replacement parts available at the moment, however, with the great warranty offered you can rest assured parts will be replaced in the first 3 years if anything goes wrong.
