Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Review

Omega J8006 Nutrition CenterPROS:

  • Elegant, compact and lightweight design.
  • Ejects pulp automatically for continuous juicing.
  • Unlike centrifugal juicers that make loud noise while juicing, the Omega J8006 makes very little noise while churning food.
  • Dual stage juice processing system extracts the maximum amount of juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, including wheatgrass.
  • Very dry pulp – This juicer squeezes out every last drop of juice from the pulp.
  • The mighty GE Ultem Auger juices virtually everything you throw at it and can make fresh frozen desserts, peanut butter, pasta and more.
  • Juicer parts can be easily detached for cleaning and are dishwasher safe.
  • The low speed system limits froth and foam preventing oxidation. Low speed masticating style juicer squeezes, instead of grinding, which allows the juice to maintain its pure color, natural taste, vitamins and nutrients and antioxidants, plus better flavored juice and freshness. Juice can be stored for up to 72 hours without degradation.
  • 15-year warranty period.

CONS:

  • Pricey (estimated $300) – It costs more than most regular centrifugal models.
  • Running at 80 RPM it sure takes longer to make juice if you compare it with centrifugal juicers.

BOTTOM LINE:

Overall Rating : 4.7 out of 5

Omega J8006 Overview

Omega J8006
Wheatgrasses, kale, cabbage, spinach, and pine tree needles are just some of the natural products that can be juiced with the Omega 8006 Juicer.
J8006 Nutrition Center is the upgraded model from Omega’s second generation J8005 with an elegant and compact design, additional features, and improved technology. Omega has added FIVE additional years of warranty (15 years as opposed to 10 years on the Omega Model 8005 Juicer), an improved auger, and a built in handle.

Please note: Another Omega masticating juicer model, designated J8004, is exactly the same machine as J8006 with similar features & functions. The only difference is the color –J8004 has a white body whereas J8006 is chrome and black, sold at a slightly higher price.

Omega J8006
Use the homogenizer attachment to make fresh frozen desserts, natural baby food, and nut butters (an all-natural form of peanut butter.)
The J8006 Nutrition Center is capable of extracting the maximum amount of juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, and even wheatgrass, thanks to the dual stage juice processing technology – First, juice is extracted by crushing the fruit or vegetable. Then, before the pulp is ejected, the pulp is squeezed during the second pressed stage. This results in a higher yield of juice and a very dry pulp. It also features an auto pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing.

Featuring the super-hard GE Ultem Auger, which is 8 times stronger than most other plastics and the powerful gear reduction is equivalent to a 2HP Motor, the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center does more than just juice. You can even use the juicer to turn nuts into nut butters (an all-natural peanut butter), make baby food from natural, fresh ingredients, whip up soy milk, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices, and mince herbs and garlic!
