Omega J8006 Juicer

The Omega J8006HDS Juicer is a 5th generation single auger horizontal juicer and a direct update to very popular Omega 8004/8006 machines. As expected, the upgraded models retain all the benefits of old models and introduce a few new features.

  • Juicing and glossy cone;
  • Adjustable juicing End Cap and glossy End Cap;

Engine and body unit

The Omega J8006HDS Slow Masticating Juicers feature Eastman Tritan Copolyester BPA-free enclosure with a built-in scoop handle.

It has a 200 watt motor with 2 HP corresponding to the torque or the circular power. The motor rotates the auger at a slow speed of 80 rpm to ensure low oxidation of the juice.

The motor is also equipped with a reset switch and thermal cut-off system to protect the motor from overload. The juicer is designed for up to 30 minutes of continuous operation before being stopped for a few minutes of rest.

Feeding with drum, chute and produce

The juicer comes with a clear drum and slick and black removable funnel so you can see what is going on inside the juicer while it is processing ingredients. All drum, chute and hopper parts are made from BPA-free, clear, stress-resistant and durable Eastman Tritan copolyester material.

Although this juicer has a few improvements over the old model, they come with similar to the J8004 and J8006 models only 1.5 inch / 4 cm slide opening. You need to cut the beets and other thick vegetables into smaller pieces. While you can easily feed whole carrots into it without cutting, the juicer has enough torque to chew it without squeezing. You will also not require any effort to push hard products into the gutter as the auger pulls it evenly.

Gear / snail

Omega J8006HDS Juicer is equipped with a auger made of upgraded very strong GE Ultem resin material that makes them more durable under the pressure.

Juicer screen

The juicer is made of BPA-free Eastman Tritan copolyester material with two (2) stainless steel mesh surfaces.

The glossy cone does not have the mesh screen part and is made exclusively of Estamn Tritan copolyester material.

End cover and nozzles

The Omega J8006HDS Juicer comes with three (3) levels of pressure-adjusting nozzle that allow regulation of the load applied to the pulp before it is ejected. Low pressure works for the soft ingredients and high pressure is used for solid products to squeeze the maximum juice. You usually set the maximum pressure for such products as beets, carrots, celery and green vegetables and release it to a minimum for oranges, pineapples and cucumbers.

The juicer is also equipped with an extra glossy end cap and five (nozzle) for performing food processing tasks such as chopping, grinding ice shaving and extruding dough.

Functionality

  • Carrots and beet juice;
  • Ginger juice;
  • Celery juice;
  • Green vegetable juice;
  • Wheatgrass juice;
  • Apple and pear juice;
  • Pineapple and other soft fruits;
  • Cucumber and tomatoes;
  • Citrus juice;
  • Sorbet;
  • Babymad;
  • Nut butter;
  • Emergency milk;
  • Grinding of coffee and nuts;
  • Pasta.

As with most single-screw horizontal augers, the J8006 / J8008 is a truly multifunctional machine capable of performing a wide range of food processing tasks in addition to juicing. The empty cone is used instead of a juicer to perform tasks such as shaving ice cream, making frozen treats, grinding coffee, making nut butter and even chopping meat. If you combine the blank screen with one of five (5) pasta nozzles, you can make a variety of styles of pasta.

Cleaning and assembly / disassembly, operation

Juice machines with a single auger are the easiest to mount / disassemble and clean across all types of juicers. And the Omega J8006HDS Juicer is not an exclusion. To assemble, connect the drum to the main body, attach the auger and mount the juicer over it, and finally attach the nozzle and end cap. Now the juicer is ready for use.

The juice controls only consist of a button with ON, STOP and REVERSE functions. The reverse function is designed to prevent paper jams.

The cleaning is also very easy and takes less than 2 minutes, it is enough to rinse most parts just under the water. While the juicer screen is the hardest to clean. However, the cleaning brush that comes with the kit is very convenient for scrubbing the clogged fiber from it.

Guarantee

The Omega J8006HDS Juicer comes with the longest and best in the industry 15 year warranty on parts and performance for home use in the US / Canada and with 1 year for commercial and international customers.

Yield: 2.2 lbs / 1 kg of carrots and beets deliver an average of 420 ml of juice.

Summary

Although the Omega J8006HDS Juicer is not the latest 6th generation model it works very well when juicing beets, carrots and other hard vegetables and delivering one of the highest yields across single auger presses.

This machine also has a very good torque, so you do not need any effort when applying the product in the gutter, which is common for horizontal mastication machines. So if you are planning to juice not only the hard veggie and look for a multifunctional juicer that not only handles a wide range of products including leafy vegetables and wheatgrass but also a variety of food processing tasks such as making nut butter and frozen treats than Omega J8006HDS Juicer is an option worth considering.
