Omega 8006 Juicer and Nutrition Centre
Review of the Omega 8006 Juicer and Nutrition Centre:
Most people prefer a centrifugal juicer to a masticating juicer, mainly because of speed and convenience. Until recently, that was me. Hubby and I are both health enthusiasts and my life changed when he decided that it was time to try a masticating juicer.
Sceptical at first, I hung onto my centrifugal juicer as long as I could, but I eventually agreed and we bought the Omega 8006 Juicer and Nutrition Centre. I immediately fell in love.
This masticating juicer has a GE Ultem™ juicing auger, which is 8 times stronger than other augers. It also has a reliable 2HP equivalent low rotating induction motor that turns at only 80 RPM and is very quiet. Which is heaven. No longer to I have to turn off a machine in order to hear Hubby’s questions or comments!
It is a bit slower than the centrifugal juicer but, as a health enthusiast who knew only the fast-acting convenience of centrifugal juicers all my life, the absolute thoroughness of this machine came as a pleasant surprise. I have used it for a week now, and the bit of time lost every time I use it is negligible compared to the fact that the juice extracted from produce is so much more, and of a much better quality, than the juice I usually extracted using my now forgotten centrifugal “white elephant.” And due to the fact that the low rotation speed of the motor generates almost no heat, a much better quality juice is rendered.
I have tested the statement that literally ALL juice is extracted when using a masticating juicer, and it’s true! After feeding the pulp back to be reprocessed, only a few extra drops of juice was rendered. The pulp that remains after extracting the goodness is totally dry.
In addition, using the included Nutrition Centre attachments, I can now make my own whole-wheat pasta, lean beef mince and homogenised milk. What more could a homemaker want!?
I just heard Hubby whisper “A great Warranty.” 😉 Which, of course, is true. The juicer comes with a 15 year manufacturer’s warranty, valid at all UK service centres.
Cleaning is a song. Much easier than most juicers I’ve ever encountered.
I definitely recommend the Omega 8006 Juicer and Nutrition Centre to anybody looking for excellence in food preparation.
