Juicing is a fun and delicious way on incorporating more fruits and veggies in your diet. However, if you don’t have the right equipment, juicing some veggies especially leafy greens, can be tough. Many of the commercially available juicers fail to extract most out of the produce. Also, if you use certain high speed equipment, you stand a good chance of damaging the key nutrients in the process. Today we will be looking at the Omega Juicer J8006X which solves both the problems.
The Omega J8006X is a masticating juicer. This means that it operates at much slower speeds than the the centrifugal juicers. The unique masticating action of this juicer is able to extract the juice to the last drop. Also, as it operates at much slower speeds, the oxidation of the key components in the juice is limited to a minimum. You get both maximum yield and unbeatable quality.
Omega is a very trusted juicer brand. I have been using Omega brand juicers for over a couple of decades and never had a problem. The all-new Omega J8006X juicer lives up to the legacy of the brand and delivers a star performance. Let’s take a closer look at this juicer now!
What is the Omega J8006X best for?
This juicer is really versatile. It can juice literally any fruit or veggie you can imaging. Leafy greens are one of the most difficult veggies to juice and this juicer handles them like a pro. I had no problem whatsoever juicing my kale, spinach, wheatgrass or collard greens.
Apart from juicing fruits and veggies, this juicer is awesome at extruding pasta, grinding coffee and making nut butters and baby food. You can literally use this thing as a food processor. It doesn’t get more versatile than that!
What makes Omega Juicer J8006X such a great juicer?
The Omega J8006X combines all the essential traits of a great juicer in a very well designed durable design. Some of the features of this juicer that sets it part for the competition are:
Masticating action and a dual stage juicing
The omega J8006X juicer operates at a speed of 80 RPM and employs a masticating mechanism in extracting juice. The juice is extracted at two stages. Firstly, as the produce hits the auger, it is crushed in small bits. This results in the release of first batch of juice. The crushed pulp then moves along the auger and is squeezed with immense pressure to release the second batch of juice. This mechanism is very similar to the way we chew the food in our mouths. The combination of slow speeds and masticating process ensures that the produce is juiced to the last drop.
Another benefit from the slow masticating juicing process is less oxidation of key nutrients. Slower speeds limit the mixing of oxygen into the juice and hence can significantly reduce oxidation. As a matter of fact, I was able to store my wheat-grass juice extracted from the Omega J8006X juicer for about 72 hours with no problems.
Great build quality
This juicer is built to last. Most of the Omega J8006X reviews rave about how sturdy the juicer is. I have known people who have been using this juicer for years on a daily basis and had absolutely no problems at all. The Auger itself is made form a special ULTEM material that is 8 times as strong as ordinary plastic.
The juicer houses a very powerful 2 horsepower motor that produces a tremendous amount of torque operating at just 80 RPM. No wonder it is able to extract juice from almost anything!Versatility. The Omega Juicer J8006X is more than a juicer. It can be used to do so many more things. It is a great pasta extruder, a nut butter maker, a food processor and much, much more.
