Omega J8005 Masticating Juicer
Omega J8005Omega J8005 Nutrition Center Single-Gear Commercial Masticating Juicer is a masticating-style juice extractor. Using a low speed of 80 RPM’s results in minimal heat build-up and oxidation promoting healthy enzymes and longer lasting juices.
They’re designed and engineered for health-conscious individuals who want greater variety in their daily fruit and vegetable juicing routine by having the ability to also juice wheatgrass and leafy greens.
Not just for juicing, they turn nuts into nut butter, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices, mince herbs and garlic, make baby food, and whip up soy milk in a flash. They don’t clog, foam or build up hear, for the most nutritious drinks and snacks you’ll make for your family.
Omega J8005 Nutrition Center Product Description:
Equipped with a 1/3-horsepower single-phase induction motor, this powerful masticating juicer thoroughly chews up plant fibers to fully extract vitamins, enzymes, and minerals from fruits and vegetables, including wheatgrass and leafy greens.
The Omega J8005 Nutrition Center’s dual-stage juicing system ensures maximum efficiency, while its low rotation speed of 80 RPMs means no foaming, no clogging, and no heat build-up.
In addition to juicing fruits and vegetables, the multi-purpose machine can also be used, just as effectively, to make peanut butter or natural baby food, grind coffee beans and flour, mince herbs and spices, and extrude homemade pasta including spaghetti and linguini with the included pasta nozzles.
Other highlights include a high juice yield with very dry pulp, an automatic pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing, a built-in “reverse” mode to prevent food from getting stuck, heavy-duty construction, and quiet operation.
Easy to assemble, operate, and clean, the UL- and cUL-approved masticating juice extractor measures 14-1/2 by 6-1/2 by 15-1/2 inches and carries a 10-year warranty.

A.V. of New York says : “I love this juicer”
I never expected that a juicer could become my favorite kitchen appliance, but here it is! Omega performs beautifully. Here’s what I’ve tested it with:
- leafy greens (dill, cilantro, parsley, dandelion, kale, parsnip etc.): extracts lots of dark green juice; leaves very dry pulp. I haven’t tested Omega with wheatgrass yet, but given its performance with other similar-texture greens it should do fine.
- carrots, beets: approximately half of the volume comes out as juice; pulp is pretty dry.
- berries (strawberries, raspberries etc.): most of the volume is juice, but pulp is rather wet. I had to finish off with carrots to push the soft pulp of the berries through the juicer. It may be a better idea to blend berries rather than juice them.
- hard green apples, oranges: lots of juice, dry pulp.
- yellow (softer) apples, grapes: lots of juice, dry pulp, but have to use something hard/fibery at the end (carrots or beets) to push the remaining pulp out.
- almond butter, walnut butter: these came out somewhat dry/crumbly, not as smooth as peanut butter; had to add oil.
Additional features that I like:
- very quiet, can’t even compare to centrifugal models.
- masticator rotates slowly, so the juice doesn’t get heated, hence less nutrients are supposed to get destroyed.
- Omega squeezes produce cells instead of crushing them at high speed; this preserves more of the larger molecules (amino acids, vitamins etc.) thus making the juice more nutritious.
- Omega doesn’t produce fine-crushed pulp requiring a fine mesh filter (as is the case with centrifugal models), so it’s much easier to wash. There’s no fine mesh to clean, which makes the difference between a juicer that ends up used once a year (as was the case with my old centrifugal juicer) and several times each day (as is the case with my Omega). It’s also very satisfying to see that the bulk of the produce is turned into juice and is not lost in soggy pulp.
