FULL REVIEW: Omega J8006 Masticating Juicer

Looking for a simple but extremely effective way to improve your eating habits?

Well the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer, at $299.99, may not be the cheapest solution but it is without doubt a quick and easy way to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables.

Equipped with a powerful commercial motor, Omega promise, 'no foaming, clogging, or heat build-up.'

This is a dual stage juicing system which 'thoroughly chews up plant fibers to fully extract vitamins, enzymes, and minerals from fruits and vegetables'.

Not only will you be able to produce a high juice yield, you'll also be thankful for the automatic pulp-ejection feature which means you can keep on juicing!

Sturdily built, with four stabilizing feet, and quiet operation this is a quality product, 'engineered for quiet operation and long life.'

With the ability to juice leafy green vegetables as well as fruits, you can be sure that all the vitamins and minerals are retained for your benefit. And as we know, a diet high in fruit and vegetables is highly recommended for both general health and specific ailments such as high blood pressure and cholesterol. 

And once people get into juicing they get hooked - creating tasty and enticing drinks for the whole family.

It's a virtuous circle.

So what do the buyers of the Omega J8006 say about it?

Good things! (just like those fruits and veggies).

'I have rated the 8006 at five stars because of its efficiency, ease of use and quality of materials,' said one customer.

And this efficiency translates into lovely juice - a perfect way to enjoy raw foods.

'Greater juice output compared to other brands,' said another customer. 'For example, five medium sized HoneyCrisp apples produced a full quart of wonderful clear pulp-free juice.'

And it's not just apples. 'I use mine anywhere from 2-3 times a day. It crunches through tough items like beets with indifference.'

And if you doubt that your family will actually make use of this machine, it does seem that simply having one in the house is enough to entice. 'Since receiving my new Omega 8006 Juicer,' said one user. 'I have made juice every day. It is so easy to clean. I now jump start my day with a healthy vegetable drink. Highly recommend it!'

Customers did point out a few aspects which may sway potential buyers.

'I need to point out that the feed tube is only about 1.5" in diameter,' reported one in-depth review....I use a little cutting board to slice items while the juicer pulls them in almost by itself. It works very well.'

So you have to be prepared to do a little prep to get the best out of this machine. As one customer said, 'If you do not want to cut the produce into smaller pieces then this is not the juicer for you.'

And people really like the ease of use and cleaning.

'Mainly the parts are smaller so they're easier to clean thoroughly,' said one. 'There are no awkward nooks & crannies where food can get stuck.'

Another excellent feature is the 15 year warranty.

This is important - especially because some users experienced wear and tear on parts - especially the auger, the bit that 'masticates' all that pulp.

'This machine makes great juice,' said one buyer. 'But the wear of these parts has me very concerned.'

Although I must make it clear that in all cases parts were replaced by Omega.

Some people were disappointed that the product was not all metal. 'I was expecting something a bit more substantial,' said a buyer. 'When I read chrome in the description I expected metal, not plastic. The 15 year warranty is a big plus though.'

And most reviewers agree that, ' that this machine does a great job of making juice.' 

So if you don't mind factoring in a bit more preparation time to cut up your fruits and vegetables, your whole family could soon be benefiting from delicious, healthy juices. 

'This has been a fantastic purchase and I would make it again,' said a happy mom.
