The Omega J8004 is among one of Omega’s top juicers, alongside the Omega J8006. The dual-stage juicer is designed to produce healthy and delicious juices packed to the brim with beneficial vitamins, nutrients, and enzymes.
Masticating Juicer & Benefits
As a masticating juicer, the J8004 is designed to crush and squeeze all juices out of your produce, rather than to shred your ingredients. One of the many benefits of this is that by crushing rather than shredding, it helps to retain all of the healthy components from your fruits, veggies, etc. This method of juicing also helps to ensure that you are left with very little waste and very dry pulp.
Most masticating juicers also struggle to extract juices from leafy greens such as spinach, kale or even wheatgrass. However, you won’t have this problem with the Omega J8004 as it can get the job done in no time!
By incorporating this juicer into your daily juicing routine, you will be getting maximum fiber, nutrients, vitamins, natural taste and juice from the produce you are adding in. If you’re looking for an efficient and powerful juicer with a high nutritional yield, then this is a fantastic option.
Masticating juicers also operate at a lower speed than other juicers. It processes at 80 RPMs, which works to minimize heat buildup within the machine and less exposure to oxygen which is the cause behind the oxidation and damage of healthy enzymes. Low-speed processing systems also limit the amount of froth which can occur during the juicing process.
Multi-purpose Juicing Machine
The J8004 is capable of more than just juicing. It can even break down food! It comes designed with a two-stage process with two chutes, one for juicing and the other for broken down foods.
You can create nut butter, soy milk, hummus, salsa, smoothies, sorbets and smoothies with this multi-purpose masticating machine. It can even be used to mince, dice and chop up various foods for you. The nozzles and attachments required for these endeavors are already included in the box so you won’t have to worry about purchasing these tools separately.
Silent Operating Motor
Compared to a lot of other juicing machines (more specifically, centrifugal juicers), this versatile masticating juicer produces far less noise. However, you can expect some noise from the machine, but it won’t be enough to disturb your neighbors, flatmates, family or whoever might be sharing a building with you.
It can be a hassle to have to clean out the machine after every single juicing endeavor, especially if you’re preparing your juices in large quantities for an event or for a party with your friends. With the J8004, you can juice multiple times throughout one session and clean up after you have finished with everything.
The juicer also comes designed with an automatic pulp ejector, which is really good for continuous juicing. It also comes built with a dual-stage processor, which means that after the initial squeezing stage the produce will enter a second stage process where all juices will be extracted from your ingredients.
Omega Cleaning Process
The Omega J8004 is just as easy to clean as the J8006. It is recommended that the juicer is washed by hand, as it has not been officially cleared as being 100% BPA-free and could potentially release those chemicals if exposed to a dishwashing machine too many times.
By washing all the individual parts — such as the auger, the feed chute, the juicing screen and the collective bin — by hand, you can increase the longevity of the equipment and lower the risk of toxins from the plastic shell. You can wash it through with hot water, as this will ensure that any produce or juice residue will wash out during the cleaning process.
