Every kitchen needs the J8005 Nutrition Center from Omega
This appliance functions as juicer, food processor, pasta extruder, homogenizer and grinder
This juicer has a high juice yield
Equipped with a 1/3-horsepower single-phase induction motor, this powerful masticating juicer thoroughly chews up plant fibers to fully extract vitamins, enzymes, and minerals from fruits and vegetables, including wheatgrass and leafy greens
Unit's dual-stage juicing system ensures maximum efficiency, while its low rotation speed of 80 RPMs means no foaming, no clogging, and no heat build-up
In addition to juicing fruits and vegetables, the multipurpose machine can also be used just as effectively to make peanut butter or natural baby food, grind coffee beans and flour, mince herbs and spices, and extrude homemade pasta including spaghetti and linguini with the included pasta nozzles
Other highlights include a high juice yield with very dry pulp, an automatic pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing, a built-in 'reverse' mode to prevent food from getting stuck, heavy-duty construction, and quiet operation
Easy to assemble, operate, and clean, the UL- and cUL-approved masticating juice extractor
This juicer takes items like carrots, apples, any solid items really well. It takes leafy greens pretty well, kale, spinach, etc. Doesn't like tomatoes, plums, any pulpy items tends to clog it up.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. this juicer is not for tomatoes, plums, any pulpy items it gets clogged easily. I have also noticed you must chop your item small so the machine can receive it. Good Juice though.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate. I was under impression you could put anything in this and it could handle it. Not so
This is a very solid juicer, it works well, and is quite easy to disassemble for cleaning. It cleans up very easily and quickly, As other reviewers have said, it is better on the more solid vegetables and fruits, but not to the point of being less usable. It also works very well with greens, spinach, kale, etc. I'm very happy with it. It also has a side benefit as it can be used to make "nut butters" and grind coffee. While I have not used it to grind coffee, it does make nut butter very well. . You may have to grind it more than once to get a smoother consistency, but it does the job quickly and efficiently. It also has attachments to extrude pasta. . I have yet to try that, but if it works as well as everything else this machine does I have not doubt it will do so well. The reasons I didn't give the machine 5 stars was the smaller feed tube, (not a big issue for me) and the fact was not made here in the US. Otherwise it's an outstanding machine which does more than one thing very well. I would happily recommend this product to anyone.

I bought this to replace a popular but much less expensive centrifugal juicer from a big box retailer that I bought first and the blades ate up the plastic after only a couple months use. Ive really liked this new juicer in comparison. It is much quieter, the pulp comes out much drier, and even though I have to cut up the veges a lot smaller the clean up and set up is easier and quicker so it evens out in the end. I would recommend it.

The Omega J8005 works great for making juice of any kind. It also works very well at processing nuts into meal. The only drawback I have is that you have to chop items fairly small to add into the unit. It's a little time consuming but I don't mind because good health is the real issue here. One of the best aspects is the easy clean up and the ease of assembling and disassembling the unit. Very clean.

We bought this juicer to replace our 20+ year old Champion Juicer. The Omega J8005 is more quite, however the screen fills quickly and you have to stir to get all the juice. It does work nicely on all kinds of vegies and fruit.
All and all we are pleased with our purchase.
There are a LOT of juicers out there so choosing one was becoming a very stressful decision--too many options! A friend recommended this juicer to me, and I am so, so pleased with it. It's quiet, efficient, and very, VERY easy to clean. I juice every morning before work so an easy clean up is important to me. I can usually prep, juice, and clean up within 20 minutes now. I haven't used any of the other functions on this machine like the pasta maker, etc., so I can't speak to their efficiency.
I also like this particular machine because of the masticating function. It helps break down those tougher fruits and veggies. The juice doesn't heat up either because the Omega moves at a slower RPM. It's still very fast though, and I don't feel like I've lost nutrients because of the heat found in a centrifugal-powered machine. If you want to juice, this is the machine for you!!

I did extensive research on juicers before buying this one. I wanted one that had a small footprint, not too loud, easy to clean and could juice wheat grass. This one fit the bill. I knew already that the base was plastic and not real chrome, but ordered anyway. The plastic looks realistic enough, just prone to scratches. Just used juicer yesterday. Worked fantastic. I don't mind the small spout as it forces you to prepare your food, which to me, makes it more fun. Perfect carrot and beet juice. Juiced 5 different veggies for dinner as well without any issue. Have not tried to juice soft fruit yet. Easy to clean with simple assembly instructions. As far as recipes, the booklet has maybe 3-4. You should purchase *** for all the recipes your hear desires.

I really like my new Omega juicer, this model the J8005 isn't the latest and greatest. But, after hearing about the differences between this and the new J8006 I don't imagine you could tell any difference operating these two side by side.
This is a handsome piece of kitchen equipment, even the plastic pieces have a sturdy quality feel to them. Every aspect that one could think of has a quality, sturdy and dependable feel to it. The way that the pieces fit together, the sound that the motor makes (it never sounds strained), the look of the juicer (understated, high quality, traditional), the way it works (no drama, no fuss, it works as it should), the cord is plenty long and very sturdy like the rest of the machine.
Be sure to pay attention to the pulp and juice cups; they will fill up quicker than you think. I use a plastic pitcher to pour the juice cup contents into. This lets me juice 32 oz (+/- ?) and mix it all together.
Lately I have been juicing a few carrots, several leaves of romaine (or a few leaves of Bok Choy), one large cucumber, a lemon and two apples. This requires one to empty both the juice cup and the pulp cup.
If you feel like messing about with it, you can send the pulp through a second time. It seems like you get more juice out of it. I don't do this, the pulp is dry enough that I feel like I'm getting my money's worth and don't feel like the hassle.
The pulp can be use to make crackers, or as an addition to quiches, meatloafs, etc.
Hard seeds shouldn't be run through this. I use an apple corer to get rid of apple seeds. I quarter lemons, then make slices perpendicular to the length of those quarters. This exposes slices of lemon (like slices of pizza, with the crust end attached to the skin of the lemon). This allows me to quickly pluck seeds out.
This is a great juicer, you really can't go wrong with this juicer!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very accurate; chrome and black plastic.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of the Omega J8005 is outstanding.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was very accurate.
After using this and making some incredible juices, we decided it was wasteful to discard all the wonderful fiber in the pulp. We then purchased a Vitamix blending juicer and are happier with that. We now use the pulp and it is even easier to clean.
That said, if one wants an extracting/masticating juicer, the Omega J8500 is the one for you. It is a high quality machine but iI would recommend my friends get a Vitamix instead.
