Omega J8004 Overview
Omega J8004 Juicer is one most affordable cold press juicers on the market and despite the fact that it was released years ago (comparing to the other juicers available on the market) it still produces high yield of juice.
Ok, let’s don’t run before we walk and review this juicer step by step.
Omega 8004 ‘Nutrition Center Juicer’ is a juicer that operates at a very low speed – around 80 revolutions per minute (RMP). This is a huge difference compared to centrifugal juicers, that run on speed of 6500RPM or even more!
That’s why J8004 is called a ‘slow juicer’. Although it is not a disadvantage – on the contrary, due to such low speed, during an extracting juice from the produce it is being kept out of oxidation and as a result, you get juice with high value of nutrients and vitamins. I believe, there is no need to explain why nutrients and vitamins are very valuable for good health, isn’t it?
Thanks to dual-stage masticating extraction and powerful 2 HP high torque commercial grade motor you can be sure that you get the highest rate of juice out of the produce.
High yield is not possible without tough auger that can masticate the produce and extract juice from fruits, vegetables and greens (that’s why slow juicers are also called ‘masticating juicers’). Omega’s auger made from GE Ultem material that makes is 8 time stronger than melamine auger and squeeze the every ounce of carrots, cabbages, apples etc.
Juicing is not the only thing Omega J8004 can do. It is an actual ‘Nutrition Center’ as it is pointed out in the name of juicer – owning this mastication juicer allows you to:
- make pasta and soy milk;
- prepare baby food;
- make peanut butter on your own;
- grind coffee beans, herbs and spices
- and much more
Every time you are juicing you have to clean up the machine to prevent clogging. It might be hard and bothering while cleaning other juicers but when it comes to Omega 8004 it is easy-peasy and takes no more than 2-3 minutes.
Another one good feature is the time you can keep your juice. Usually juices can’t be stored for, more, than one day, but thanks to the way 8004 extracting juice from the produce, lifetime of juices are quite long – up to 72 hours.
To all this should be added that if in case juicer run down hold your horses – sometimes it happens when you put a lot of the produce inside and motor is overloaded. You just need to push and hold the ‘reverse’ button at the back of juicer for a few second. After that, push ‘on’ again and the juicer will continue squeezing juice.
Omega 8004 vs 8006
These juicers are identical except for the colour: 8004 comes in white colour while 8006 comes in chrome. Both juicers have the same warranty, the same dimensions and they both do a great work in juicing.
The Omega 8006 costs a bit more than 8004, so if you’re okay with white colour you better take the cheaper one. If you want to have a chore juicer in your kitchen – take the Omega J8006.
