The Omega J8006 Masticating Juicer is a top seller online. It has close to 1500 reviews and a 5 a star rating on Amazon. This masticating style juicer slowly squeezes the produce, which keeps the taste, nutrients, and enzymes in the juice. It does not grind, keeping the important nutrients and such in the juice, rather than chopping and grinding which can destroys the nutrients so important to the human body.
Omega has built a great slow and powerful masticating juicer. It can juice almost anything you can think of; from coffee beans to wheat-grasses. It can even produce fresh nut butters by grinding up the various nuts available. The 80 RPMs which it turns at can chew through just about anything, effortlessly. The slower speed does not decrease the amount of juice provided, although it does create less froth. In addition, this type of juicer is commonly used in commercial production.
This commercial grade juicer works in a couple different stages. First fresh fruits and vegetables can be crushed in order to extract the juice from the pulp. Before the pulp is ejected it is crushed again a second time to be sure every drop of juice has been released. This process ensures that any waste is very minimal. The low heat process coupled with the low speed allows the juice to be stored for 72 hours without any change in the enzymes and nutrients contained in the juice.
This machine has a high level of feedback because it is made of a solid construction. All pieces are made of the highest quality and should not have any problems with loose fittings or flimsy parts. The low speeds it turns is fairly quiet, for both home and kitchen use.
