The main difference with the Omega J8006 Juicer when compared with other juicers such as the Hamilton Beach brand or Cuisinart brands is in the way that it extracts the juice. There are two types of juicers centrifugal ones and the masticating style, the Omega falls into the latter category.

A masticating style of juicer is also referred to as a low speed juicer and is perfect for turning those leafy greens into a healthy drink. Many people who want to juice more vegetables than fruit often decide to purchase this type of juicer.

Juicing at low speeds is said to have certain benefits. These benefits include being able to process more leafy types of vegetables while still extracting the maximum amount of juice from them. The lower speeds also help maintain the quality of the food and this allows the enzymes to retain their health benefits for a longer period of time. With the masticating style your juice can be stored for up to 72 hours without losing any quality.

Another benefit is that you will see a lot less foam being produced due to the lower speeds. Your juice will taste fresher and be full of flavor.

The Omega J8006 uses a dual stage processing system which allows you to extract the maximum amount of juice from all the foods you are juicing. This means that you will get lots of juice from any fruits, vegetables and leafy greens. It works by extracting all the juice from the food first and then squeezing the pulp before it is ejected. You will notice that the left over pulp is very dry – extremely important as this signifies that all the juice has been extracted.

A great feature of this machine is that you can use it to make nut butters from nuts and is perfect for anyone wanting to make homemade baby food.

Customer Feedback

Reading customer feedback is extremely helpful when buying a new product, especially one that you have not used before. If this is your first juicer the feedback below can help you see what type of features you should be looking for in a juicer. Take into account if you want to juice leafy greens, make nut butters or make baby food.

* The pulp is dry enough that I’ve never looked and thought “I could get more juice out of that”

* The motor has NEVER given the slightest inclination of straining.

* 4 main parts are very easy to put together and disassemble.

* No heat build up in the juice.

* Hard produce will go easier and quicker if sliced

* The machine itself is sturdy. Having it in a place where you can add the ingredients easily rather than having it stuffed under the cabinet will enhance your access and ease of use.

Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Low Speed Masticating Juicer, Black and Chrome

The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center is a masticating style juicer. Sometimes referred to as a low speed juicer, the Nutrition Center processes at 80rpm, whereas most other juicers process at a speed of 1,650 to 15,000rpm. The low speed protects and maintains healthy enzymes, prevents oxidation and allows juice to be stored up to 72 hours without degradation.

The GE Ultem Auger is 8x stronger than most other plastics and the powerful gear reduction is equivalent to a 2HP Motor. The dual stage juice processing system extracts the maximum amount of juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, even wheatgrass! You can also use the nutrition center 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. Make delicious and nutritious drinks and snacks that everyone will love.

Measuring 7in wide, 15.5in deep and 8.5in tall. Usage of more frozen foods (fruit, ice cream, etc.) than liquids leads to the foods sticking to the sides of blender jars or the mixture becomes stiff (frozen) and will not flow. The juice screen is already installed in the juicer

Product Features

Low speed, masticating style juicing system Omega’s Nutrition Center does more than just juice. You can 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. Includes a GE Ultem Auger which is 8x stronger than most other plastics. Powerful gear reduction is equivalent to a 2HP Motor. Juicer processes at 80rpm’s. Low speed or masticating style juicer squeezes, instead of grinding, which allows the juice to maintain its pure color, natural taste, vitamins and nutrients. Dual stage juicer.

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. Extracts the maximum amount of nutrients, vitamins, taste and juice from minimum amounts of fruits, vegetables, leafy greens such as spinach and kale, even wheatgrass.

Economical. Since the juicer is so efficient and productive, you’ll get the greatest amount of juice from the least amount of produce. The low speed system does not mean a longer time to juice. It means a more efficient juicer. More nutrients and antioxidants, plus better flavored juice and freshness. Engineered for quiet operation and longer life. The low speed system limits froth and foam preventing oxidation. Juice can be stored for up to 72 hours without degradation or the juice separation that occurs with other juicers.

This juicer efficiently juices hard and soft fruits and vegetables without destroying the natural flavor and nutritional benefits.

The food processor attachment chops and minces, providing natural flavor and nutrition from garlic, scallions, red pepper, ginger, and most other foods, including herbs and seasonings. Soft foods for special diets for babies are quick and easy to prepare with the mincing set-up.

Homemade spaghetti, linguini, or breadsticks can be extruded in just minutes with the included pasta nozzles.

Use the homogenizer attachment to make fresh frozen desserts, natural baby food, and nut butters (an all-natural form of peanut butter.)

Wheatgrasses, kale, cabbage, spinach, and pine tree needles are just some of the natural products that can be juiced with the Omega 8006 Nutrition Center. Enjoy the best that nature offers in raw foods of all kinds and juice them for full nutritional benefits.
