I treated myself to this delightful juicer after spending an absurd amount of time researching the many different juicers on the market. The Omega 8004 is capable of juicing wheatgrass, and that was a requirement for me. Since I have owned this machine, I have juiced: apples, grapes, carrots, kale, wheatgrass, celery and spinach with wonderful results. If you don't feel the pulp is dry enough, simply run it through the machine a second time for greater yield. I also used the blank screen (included) to make a delicious banana and strawberry sorbet. Clean-up is simple and can be completed in less than 2 minutes. That was a huge selling point for me.
I spent some time researching and decided on the Omega 8006 masticating juicer. I absolutely love it and use it every single morning, so I when I was visiting my parents over the weekend I took the juicer with me. My parent loved it so much I left it with them and bought myself the 8004. Overall, yes the chute is smaller in comparison to other juicers but I don't mind spending a few extra minutes cutting the fruits/vegetable to smaller pieces which I get back later when it only takes about 2 minutes to cleanup. Also, I like that it's low rpm which generates less heat to the juice and comes with other attachments to make baby food, pasta extruder, almond/soy milk and banana 'ice cream'. Overall I would highly recommend the Omege 8006 (black chrome)/ 8004 (white), the harder Ultem auger is worth the extra $. The only comment for the 8004 is that since I juice a lot of carrots there is some slight staining on the white as with the juice cups they provide, those stain too. Other than that it's perfect!
We had decided to get a juicer and after a LOT of research, had found several scattered positive reviews about the Omega j8000 series. It's quiet, it juices beautifully and easy to clean up. In addition to juicing fruits and vegetables, you can make sorbets with frozen fruits (we recommend bananas...makes it like ice cream), you can make pasta dough and use the juicer to cut different shapes, puree foods, make homemade nut butters and more. We looked around for prices and Overstock had a great deal going on...so we saved money on the purchase, got it at the specified delivery time and we've been very pleased ever since.

This juicer is really fantastic. I just used it for a long juice fast and it produced much more juice per veggie/fruit than I thought it would! The pulp was very dry, and I used the included mesh filter to strain the juice further. It juiced ginger, greens, herbs, tons of carrots, etc., with ease. I washed all the veggies, cut them up into smaller pieces to fit through the shoot, and ran them through. Once the fast was over, I used the blank "chopper" piece with a frozen banana and it made a really nice frozen dessert, with similar texture to ice cream.
I'm very pleased to choose this juicer, it's exactly what I wanted. Very easy to use, quite, easy clean, dry pulp. it's perfect. Also I'm very happy that I had good deal buy from overstock and thanks for the fast shipping. Satisfied!

I love this juicer and it has assisted me in creating a healthier life style for myself and for my family. I have had it for over 2 years it I have absolutely no issues with it. I believe it performs just as well today as it did when I purchased it. I love the additional attachments that came with my juicer to allow me to make my own baby food and experiment with juicing. I've previously owned 2 other juicers and using them side by side with the same items to juice, I can produce over twice as much juice using the Omega and the rest is very dry to which I add water to be placed in my garden as compost. Great purchase! I would buy it all over again!
It is able to handle wheatgrass and doesn't heat up the juice with it's slow auger, as advertised. The only downside is I wish the opening was much larger and I think the upright version would have been a better choice because I believe it would have taken up less counter space. Also to allow it to compete and crush it's competition adding the ability to speed up and have the choice to keep the pulp and make soups would make it 5+ stars and more invaluable!
My only complaint is that they shoot you feed the veggies through is really small. That means a LOT of prep is needed. Unless you are juicing whole cranberries, everything has to be cuts into small pieces. It takes me about 35 mins to do a mixture of juice with 8 or more ingredients. The build quality is very good. Easy to clean as everything except for the motor can go into the dishwasher. Love juice done in this machine. It does not "froth up" like centrifugal type of juicers do. The end result is clean fresh wonderful juice. I took away one star because of all the prep required to use this machine.
I finally decided on ordering this juicer after a lot of research. I wanted a way to implement all servings of fruits and veggies into my diet, and this juicer definitely delivers! The parts are easy to remove and assemble/clean. The engine is actually quiet, as its description says. Overall, it's very high quality, and well worth its price!
I couldn't wait for my juicer to arrive and when it finally did I washed it and juiced right away. The parts are easy to assemble and clean. It juiced quietly (big surprise) and produced pulp that was very dry. I have used it twice a day since receiving it and just love it! I have bragged about my juicer to all my family and friends and encouraged them to purchase one for themselves. Get one... you will not be dissapointed.

I am enjoying the Omega J8004 juicer on a daily basis. It delivers much more juice than a cheaper juicer I had previously purchased. The masticating aspect is the way to go. There are 7 pieces to clean, but clean up is quick and all items are dishwasher safe. the product comes with a 15 year warranty.

This juicer works so well. It gets an incredible amount of juice out of the fruits and vegetables leaving a very dry pulp behind. I was looking for this kind of juicer. It is so easy to clean. I do have to cut up some of the fruit and vegetables to fit down the chute but it takes just a few minutes.
