  Imagine being able to extract the maximum amount of juice from your produce, from parsley to carrots, with minimal effort on your part. And imagine being able to serve healthful, tasty refreshments to your friends and family over and over again, in a reliable manner. Fortunately, in this Omega 8006 review, we’ll take you through all of the key features and functionalities the 8006 juicer has to help turn some of those visions into reality. 

Most experienced juicers swear by this product and it’s #1 rating on Amazon for ‘masticating juicers’ is no fluke, so let’s examine the J8006 in more detail…

Omega Model J8006 Key Features 

  • Exceptional Juice Quality – The J8006 is a masticating-type juicer that operates at a slow speed (80 RPMs), allowing the juice to retain its natural appearance, taste, and color, all without the foam that usually forms with high speed juicers.
  • Health Factor – Also due to the slow speed of the juicer, there is minimal heat generated, so the immune-system boosting enzymes, antioxidants, and nutrients of your produce remain intact after going through the juicer.Ease of Use – There is an auto-pulp ejection function that doesn’t interrupt you even if you you’re juicing 20 fruits and vegetables!
  • Ease of Use – There is an auto-pulp ejection function that doesn’t interrupt you even if you you’re juicing 20 fruits and vegetables!
  • Increased shelf life – Because less foam forms than high-speed juicers, your juice will last up to 3 days post-juicing.
  • Built for Your Toughest Juicing Needs – The GE Ultem Auger that the J8006 comes equipped with is 8x stronger than plastic and has the power equivalent to a 2HP This allows you to extract juice from just about any kind of produce, even leafy greens like spinach or kale, or harder objects like coffee beans.
  • Unique Juicing Mechanism – The Omega J8006 amazingly mimics the human mouth’s chewing function, by first crushing fruits and vegetables, and then tightly pressing them to extract virtually all of the juice available. This is unlike conventional grinding mechanisms of centrifugal juicers, so the J8006 produces more juice per serving, and drier pulp.
  • More Than Just a Juicer – Serving as a multifunctional food processing machine, the J8006 is able to make soy-milk, churn butter out of nuts, turn coffee beans into powder, mill spies, exude pasta, turn prepared dishes into baby food, and the list goes on and on
  • Cost-Saving – Since the J8006 is able to produce more juice per serving compared with conventional centrifugal juicers, this will end up saving you more money by having to buy less produce in order to whip up delicious home-made juices.
  • Noise-Reducing – Due to the slow speed of this juicer, noise will never be an issue and you can carry on conversations in the kitchen without having to shout.
  • Durability – The J8006 is extremely sturdy and made of high-quality materials that essentially guarantee many years of healthy juicing.
  • Incredible Warranty – Omega grants you a 15-year warranty on this product, which goes to show how much they believe in its long-lasting quality!

Positives and negatives

The Good

  • Superior Nutrition and Taste – The J8006 will give you the best tasting and nutritious juices, and the longest shelf-life, so if healthy is your priority, then look no further because this juicer is for you..
  • Top-of-the-line Quality – This juicer will not break down on you and can handle just about everything you throw at it, from soft fruits, to fibrous, leafy greens, to hard coffee beans.
  • Ultra-Efficient – Due to the masticating mechanism of this juicer, it will extract more juice per serving than conventional centrifugal juicers, granting you the highest yield of juice for your produce.
  • Supreme versatility – Juicing is only a small part of what the J8006 can do. From creating nut butter from nuts, to milling spices, to making homemade pasta, to processing baby food from prepared meals, the Omega J8006 can do it all.
  • Incredible Warranty – No Omega J8006 review is complete without hyping the 15 year warranty, so you are guaranteed to have high-quality, healthy juice for years to come.

The bad

  • Not for the Price-Sensitive – While few quality juicers can be obtained at a lower price, Omega’s product is priced higher than average, and might not be the best option if you’re not sure the juicing lifestyle is for you.)
  • Complexity – The various functions of the J8006 might not be for you, especially if you already own a decent food processor. A simpler, centrifugal juicer might suit you better if you purely want to juice and nothing else.
  • Prep Time – Many fruits and vegetables need to be prepped before they can be added into the J8006, so it could take 10-20 minutes just to prepare your produce before it is ready to be juiced, which may be a turn-off if you were hoping for a quicker turnaround time
  • Cleaning – While this juicer is easier to clean than several other models, it can still be a process to properly clean out certain parts of the juicer, though fortunately the juicing bins, auger, drum, funnel, plunger and screen can all be safely put into the dishwasher.

Answers to Some  Common Questions

Q: How does the Omega J8006 compare with Vitamix or Ninja products?
A: Vitamix and Ninja make blenders, whereas the J8006 is a juicer. Blenders use a grinding mechanism and preserve all of the pulp within whatever is blended. Juicers only extract the juice, while leaving out the pulp, with the benefit being that nutrients will be able to more quickly enter your body than if you drink a blended juice.

Q: What’s the difference between the Omega J8005 and J8006?
A: The auger on the J8006 is made of stronger, more durable material than the J8005, so if you’re willing to pay a little more for a product with a longer life span, then go with the J8006. As mentioned above in our Omega 8006 review, the J8006 also comes with a 15 year warranty as opposed to 10 years with the J8005.

Q: What is more healthy? Juicing with pulp or without?
A: It depends on your objectives, but pulp contains more fiber and a higher proportion of nutrients, while non-pulp juice allows the nutrients to more efficiently enter your bloodstream and supplement your cells, granting a quicker energy boost.

Q: Is the Omega J8006 a cold juice presser?
A: Yes, because the J8006 uses a masticating mechanism, which does not heat up the juice during processing.

Q: Are the Omega J8006 parts all plastic?
A: No, the body (chrome part) is metal and the transmission inside the body contains metal gears. The actual juicing parts are plastic, of two types. The auger and nosepiece are made of heavy-duty plastic that resists wear, while the rest of the juicing pieces are made of general thick plastic.
