Omega J8006HDS Juicer and Nutrition System Review

Omega J8006 Juicer

The Omega J8006HDS Juicer is a 5th gen­er­a­tion sin­gle auger hor­i­zon­tal juicer and a direct update to very pop­u­lar Omega 8004/8006 machines. As expect­ed, the upgrad­ed mod­els pre­serve all the pros of old mod­els and intro­duce a few new features.

Set includes

  • Base Unit;
  • Drum, chute, and hopper;
  • Auger;
  • Juic­ing screen and blank cone;
  • Adjustable juic­ing End Cap and blank End Cap;
  • 5 noz­zles;
  • Plas­tic juice bowl with strain­er and pulp container;
  • User man­u­al.

Motor and Body Unit 

The Omega J8006HDS Slow Mas­ti­cat­ing Juicers fea­ture East­man Tri­tan Copoly­ester BPA-Free Hous­ing with an inbuilt scoop handle.

It has a 200 Watts motor with 2 HP equiv­a­lent of the torque or cir­cu­lar force. The motor rotates the auger with a slow 80 RPM speed to ensure low oxi­da­tion of the juice.

The motor is also equipped with a reset switch and ther­mal cut-off sys­tem to pro­tect the motor from over­load­ing. The juicer is designed for up to 30 min of con­tin­u­ous oper­a­tion before it must be stopped for a few min­utes rest.

Drum, Chute, and Pro­duce Feeding

The Juicer comes with a clear drum and chute and black remov­able hop­per, so you can observe what is going on inside of the juicer while it is pro­cess­ing ingre­di­ents. All drum, chute, and hop­per parts are made from BPA-free clear stress-resis­tant, and durable East­man Tri­tan copoly­ester material.

Although, this juicer fea­tures a few improve­ments over the old mod­el they come with sim­i­lar to the J8004 and J8006 mod­els only 1.5 inches/4 cm chute open­ing. You have to cut the beets and oth­er thick veg­gies into small­er pieces. While you can eas­i­ly feed whole car­rots into it with­out pre-cut­ting, the juicer has enough torque to chew it with­out jam­ming. You also will not require any efforts to push hard pro­duce into the chute as the auger pulls it smoothly.

Gears/Auger

The Omega J8006HDS Juicer is equipped with an auger that is made from upgrad­ed very strong GE Ultem resin mate­r­i­al which makes them more durable under the juic­ing pressure.

Juic­ing Screen

The juic­ing screen is made from BPA-free East­man Tri­tan copoly­ester mate­r­i­al two (2) stain­less steel mesh surfaces.

The Blank cone does not have the mesh screen part and is made entire­ly from Estamn Tri­tan copoly­ester material.

End Cap and Nozzles

The Omega J8006HDS Juicer comes with three (3) lev­els of pres­sure adjust­ing noz­zle which allows the reg­u­la­tion of the strain applied to the pulp before it is eject­ed. Low pres­sure will work for the soft ingre­di­ents and high pres­sure is applied for firm pro­duce to squeeze the max­i­mum juice. You usu­al­ly set the max­i­mum pres­sure for such pro­duces as beets, car­rots, cel­ery, and leafy greens and release it to a min­i­mum for oranges, pineap­ples, and cucumber.

The juicer is also equipped with an addi­tion­al blank End Cap and five (noz­zle) for per­form­ing food pro­cess­ing tasks such as minc­ing, grind­ing ice shav­ing, and dough extruding.

Func­tion­al­i­ty

  • Car­rots and beets juice;
  • Gin­ger juice;
  • Cel­ery juice;
  • Leafy greens juice;
  • Wheat­grass juice;
  • Apple and pear juice;
  • Pineap­ple and oth­er soft fruits;
  • Cucum­ber and tomatoes;
  • Cit­rus juice;
  • Sor­bets;
  • Baby food;
  • Nut but­ter;
  • Nut milk;
  • Grind­ing cof­fee and nuts;
  • Pas­ta.

As with most sin­gle auger hor­i­zon­tal mas­ti­cat­ing juicers the J8006/J8008 is a tru­ly mul­ti-func­tion­al machine and able to per­form a wide range of food pro­cess­ing tasks in addi­tion to juic­ing. The blank cone is used instead of a juic­ing screen to per­form such tasks as shav­ing ice, mak­ing frozen treats, grind­ing cof­fee, mak­ing nut but­ter, and even minc­ing meat. If you com­bine the blank screen with one of five (5) pas­ta noz­zles you can make a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent styles of pasta.

Clean­ing and Assembling/Disassembling, Operating

The sin­gle auger mas­ti­cat­ing juicers are eas­i­est to assemble/disassemble and clean across all types of juicers. And Omega J8006HDS Juicer is not an exclu­sion. For assem­bling you have to con­nect the drum with the main body, secure the auger and fit the juic­ing screen over it, final­ly secure the noz­zle and end cap. Now the juicer ready to operate.

The juicer con­trols are com­prised of only one but­ton with ON, STOP, and REVERSE func­tions. The reverse func­tion is designed for pre­vent­ing jamming.

The clean­ing is also very easy and takes under 2 mins, it is enough to rinse most of the parts just under­wa­ter. While the juic­ing screen is the hard­est one to clean. How­ev­er, the clean­ing brush includ­ed in the set is very handy for scrub­bing the clogged fiber from it.

War­ran­ty

The Omega J8006HDS Juicer comes with the longest and best in the indus­try 15-years War­ran­ty on parts and per­for­mance for domes­tic use in the USA / Cana­da and with 1 year for com­mer­cial and inter­na­tion­al cus­tomers.

Sum­ma­ry

Although, Omega J8006HDS Juicer is not the lat­est 6th gen­er­a­tion mod­el it per­forms very well when juic­ing beets, car­rot, and oth­er hard veg­gies and deliv­er one of the high­est yields across sin­gle auger juicers.

This machine also has very good torque, so you will not require any efforts when feed­ing the pro­duce into the chute which is com­mon for hor­i­zon­tal mas­ti­cat­ing machines. So, if you plan to juice not only the hard veg­gie and look for a mul­ti­func­tion­al juicer that han­dles not only a large vari­ety of pro­duce includ­ing leafy greens and wheat­grass but also a range of food pro­cess­ing tasks such as mak­ing nut but­ter and frozen treat than Omega J8006HDS Juicer is an option worth to consider.
