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!
