This juicer is awesome! Received about a week after purchase, and was instantly amazed. The product looks great is definitely a heavy, good quality juicer, and comes with all the attachments, and instructions you will ever need! I have already juiced a number of times, made hummus, pasta, and nut butter with this juicer and all came out perfectly! My only complaint is that the catch containers should have been made with a pour spout. But the pulp comes out really dry! Not to mention, this juicer grinds the smallest and finest of fruits and veggies, almost no heat transfer. It definitely produces a high quality, nutritious juice. I have lost 8 lbs now that I am juicing, I cant believe it! Love this juicer, and am assured it was worth the money with the 15 year warranty. You cant beat that!

I recently bought this juicer after extensive research on masticating juicers-- and I love it. The juicer squeezes every last drop of moisture from the vegetables I use, and it is spectacularly easy to clean. The only reason that I give it 4 stars, rather than 5, is that you have to cut the veggie and fruit into small pieces in order to run through the masticator. However, the ease of cleaning more than makes up for the lengthy preparation time.
Love this juicer, very fast and easy to clean. I was concerned because of some of the reviews on other websites about the plastic on the auger shaving off but I have not had any problems like that at all. I have used other juicers and I get much more juice out of my vegetables using this juicer especially when juicing greens.

I was so happy with this juicer that I bought one for my daughter and she loves hers too! I would recommend anyone considering this juicer to look up youtube videos that show you how easy it is to use and clean. It really does squeeze all the juice out of whatever fruit or vegetable that you put into it and the outcome is superbly delicious. I'm very happy with my purchase(s).
I was planning to order a Vitamix and I am so glad I didn't. Dr. Mercola recommended the Omega Masticating juicer. I would have ordered it from his website but decided to look on Overstock.com. Thank goodness, I found it and read the great reviews. I love the ease of use. It is quiet and the clean -up is easier than cleaning a simple blender. I am a cancer survivor and really hated trying to juice in my LaLane juicer ,then the clean-up was a real chore. I gave up and gave it away to sit on some other counter. Now I juice at least once a day and most days twice. Thanks to Overstock.com and a 'special thanks' to all the reviewers who convinced me this one was the best. Yes, it is!

to be honest is a little more work that what I expect at first. I have to take my time getting all the fruit and veggies cut in small / medium pieces, no space for big pieces of carrots but not a deal breaker // the other thing is the cleaning ... Isn't a fast drink to go, you have to take your time to put the pieces of the juicer apart and wash everything ( with a brush include in the box ) Is kinda the same time I spend in a store getting a green juice / made to order / the big difference is in the money $$$$$ at the store my large juice is $*.** - at home with $** dlls I made almost 4 large drinks and still have some veggies for dinner / so far really good
This was my first 'real' juicer when I decided to try juicing for health. I've used it several times and it works flawlessly. Grinds anything I throw in it with ease, including greens and soft fruits like kiwi. It is also incredibly easy to take apart and clean. I can disassemble, clean, and reassemble in less than 10 minutes! It takes up on a small footprint. and as an added bonus, the bright polished chrome looks really nice on my counter top. I look forward to many years of use with this machine. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a top-quality juicer, this one is well worth every penny.
When I read about the different types of juicers available, the resources that I used steered me towards a masticating type because of extraction capability. A few juicer friends said look at Omega for this type. I am glad I did. The pulp comes out almost dry. A recommendation is to mix juices gradually so you can avoid any bitter veggies biting the tongue. Carrot, apples, beets, cucumbers make a great base, then add your Kales, spinach, and leafy veggies gradually so they don't dominate the flavor. A great way to get the nutrients we all need. You will love this juicer...Join the O club and get the free shipping and club dollars and you will save even more! The price here was better than ***, ** already! And where else can you get heavy items like a 12" memory foam mattress shipped free at half the price of retail!
After doing research I decided the Omega 8006 best suited my needs for a juicer as I wanted to juice leafy greens as well as the usual veggies - carrots, beets, ginger etc. This juicer seems very well made and the chrome exterior cleans up beautifully. It is quiet and produces tasty nutritious juice unless you experiment and try to juice a piece of onion. There are no problems with celery strings or fibers from dandelion or other stems. The pulp seems quite dry but I don't have anything to compare it to as this is my first juicer. I did find a delicious recipe for using the pulp to make crackers, so there is NO waste. (I used a dehydrator, but you can also make them in the oven.) LOVE this juicer and look forward to years of optimal nutrition.
