Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer Review

This Omega juicer has been one of the best rated masticating juicers for years and it is ideal for those who wish to extract the most from leafy greens, such as kale, spinach and wheatgrass. The Omega 8006 Nutrition Center’s power, versatility and effectiveness makes this the perfect machine to handle just about all of your juicing needs.
Juicing at a slower speed with an 80RPM motor helps protect against flavor, color and nutrient loss that can be seen in higher RPM centrifugal juicers.  Another benefit of slow juicing is a quieter machine with minimal foam production.
This dual stage slow juicer first crushes the fruit or vegetable being worked on, and before the pulp is extracted, it is then pressed further to ensure maximum juice yield and helping you get the most out of the produce that you have purchased.
It not only does juicing, but the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center is also capable of  grinding coffee, making pasta, making butters, mincing garlic and more with available attachments.

Pros & Cons of the Omega J8006

  • Powerful juicing machine. Even though it only works at 80RPM, it gets the most juice out of everything thrown its way.
  • Quiet juicer, especially compared to its high RPM centrifugal counterparts. Great for late night or early morning operation even when others are sleeping.
  • Low RPM’s mean less air is introduced into the juice protecting the quality of the nutrients. Less oxidation enables juice to be stored cold for up to 3 days.  One of the distinct advantages of a masticating juicer.
  • A whopping 15 year warranty. Omega juicers are built to last and the makers stand by their product.
  • Does more than just juice, included attachments make this an extremely versatile machine.
  • The best masticating juicer in its class with impressive customer scores.
  • Small feed chute means fruits and vegetables must be cut up first into smaller pieces. This can add to prep time.
  • A little slower and more methodical style of juicing than using a centrifugal juicer.

Product Features

80RPM Masticating Slow Juicing Motor – The juicer crushes, squeezes and presses fruits and vegetables instead cutting and spinning at high RPM’s.  This is ideal for those who plan on doing a lot of juicing with cabbage, kale, spinach and even wheatgrass and pine tree needles.
The low speed also helps protect the enzymes in the juice and guards against oxidation which allows the juice to be stored for up to three days.
GE-Ultem Auger – This is 8x stronger than augers found in similar juicers.  Strong and durable.
Versatile – Does more than just juice.  Comes with attachments such as a pasta extruder, food processor, and grinder attachment.
Design:  Not only does it look good, but the J8006 was designed for quiet operation and it was built to last.  Commercial grade quality construction that produces a superior quality of juice.

Who Should Buy This Omega Juicer?

If you plan to juice a lot of leafy greens (kale, spinach, wheatgrass) and want to get the highest juice yield possible, then this is the unit for you.
If you want a quieter juicer (compared to centrifugal juicers) and don’t want to wake others while you prepare your juice, then the J8006 is a worthy candidate for you.
If you would like to make large amounts of juice at one sitting so that you can store it in the fridge for 1 to 3 days without it going bad, then this is the juicer you want.
If you want a well built, well designed, high performing machine with a 15 year warranty that produces a superior quality juice, then this model Omega juicer is definitely the one to buy.

Who Should Not Buy This Juicer?

If you do not have a lot of time to juice and you are looking for the fastest juicing experience, then this is probably not the best unit for your needs.  Centrifugal juicers typically make quicker work of fruits and vegetables.  The newer models also have bigger feed chutes which means less prep time is needed to cut up produce into smaller bits. Something like the Breville BJE510XL would probably be a better choice.
If you do not have a lot of counter space and want a juicer with a small footprint, this is probably not the best unit for you.  The J8006 has a wider stance than most of the other juicers on our list.  A vertical style masticating juicer such as the Omega VRT350 or the Kuvings NS-940 Silent Juicer

Bottom Line:

The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center juicer is not just perhaps the best masticating juicer, but one of the top overall juicers on the market today according to users.  Owners love it, and rate it very highly.  It is especially recommended for those who are looking to juice leafy vegetables for maximum juice extraction.  If you are in the market for a new juicer, you cannot go wrong with this slow juicer from Omega.
