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.
This juicer works great for greens, as well as other fruits and vegetable! My last juicer was unable to extract the juice from greens (such as kale) without just shooting it out. The Omega 8006 does a great job of extracting all the juice, leaving the remaining fruits and vegetable matter completely dry and extracted.
This juicer is awesome for kale and most other vegetables and fruits. I am disappointed with juicing pineapple with this juicer. It takes too long. Otherwise it is awesome! For me personally, the collection container at the bottom can be larger because I juice about a jugful at a time. I often have to stop 3-4 times to empty the container. My entire family loves juicing and is now consuming even more fruits and vegetables! Clean up is easy and I love that it does not have any blades to clean! I highly recommend this product for anyone wanting to drink their fruits and vegetables!
The pulp is really dry so you know that it is really squeezing a lot of juice out. 15 year warranty! Very easy clean up. I was worried about the noise but you will not wake anyone if you juice while they are sleeping. Super quiet. I didn't see that the manual showed what the screen was for but I Googled a couple of videos online to see exactly how to use it. So far, very happy!
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).
love the juicer and cleanup is a breeze. i had another juicer years ago and the cleanup almost made be not want to juice. this juicer is great and cleanup is a snap. i had my 3 yr old and 6 yr old great nephews juicing and they had a ball.

Jjust a few parts, easy to clean, its slow but that is to be expected of a masticating juicer as opposed to a centrifuge type. You have to look up the difference and know what you are buying. It was excellent and priced well.

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!

If you're looking for a juicer to handle your greens well, this is your juicer! I've been using it daily for about 3 weeks now, and it's been great. It's easy to set up, use, and clean (compared to my previous Jack LaLanne juicer). I did quite a bit of research prior to deciding on the Omega J8006, and am very happy with it.

We just love the juicer. Easy to use, easy to clean, makes very good juice. Does take a little more time to cut everything in small pieces, but no real problem.
