"As well as having an impressive yield, the Omega J8006 is still one of the most efficient juicers on the market."
The Omega J8006 is one of the most versatile masticating juicers on the market which also operates incredibly efficiently. It has a low speed of 80 RPMs which is a great selling point as it means that it protects the nutrients in the ingredients you use. At the same time, the Omega J8006 uses a powerful gear which has the equivalent to 2 horsepower to power the auger and therefore produces brilliantly smooth juice. Its overall energy usage of just 150 watts also helps to keep noise to a minimum, so if you’re looking for an effective juicer that doesn’t have a disruptive presence in your home, take a look at the Omega J8006 juicer priced at between $250 and $300.
The Omega J8006 has a very attractive appearance. It is constructed mainly from stainless-steel which gives it a sleek, professional look. Its black and translucent grey plastic parts only add to the overall design. This efficient masticating juicer is only 7 inches wide and 8.5 inches tall which makes it convenient to place in your kitchen. However, it is 15.5 inches deep so make sure the surface you choose has plenty of space for it.
The Omega J8006 comes with an averagely sized chute, not an extra-large chute so you will need to chop up most kinds of fruit and vegetables to be able to fit them through. It also does not come with any kind of juice container such as a pitcher which means it is more suited to individual use rather than entertaining. However, the spout is high enough from the base to be able to fit a wide variety of household containers beneath it, so you can still store a larger amount of juice than just a single cup.
The Omega J8006 uses a masticating motion to juice, meaning that a revolving auger forces ingredients against a mesh which then separates the flesh from the juice. The Omega J8006 then transports the juice out through the spout and the leftover pulp is ejected into a separate container which you can then empty when it becomes full. This is a really handy device as it means you don’t have to keep emptying pulp for each cycle.
This great-value juicer has a higher juice yield than a lot of its competitors, which means you get more juice per ingredient, therefore helping you to save money. This puts the Omega J8006 ahead in the race for best juicer. As well as having an impressive yield, the Omega J8006 is still one of the most efficient juicers on the market.
This top-quality juicer only uses 150 watts of energy in total which is much less than its competitors who use up to 850 watts. The Omega J8006 has a low auger revolution speed of 80 RPMs. This does mean that it juices more slowly than some other juicers however, it also means that it makes the most of the ingredients. Having a low RPM means that less heat is produced and therefore transferred to the juice. This protects the nutrients in your juice and means that it can be kept for up to 72 before it begins to deteriorate. This is handy if you accidentally prepare more juice than you end up needing.
One fantastic feature of the Omega J8006 is its ‘Nutrition Centre’. The ‘Nutrition Centre’ consists of a variety of different controls which allow you to choose from a variety of different functions to create lots of different products.
