Omega 8008 Juicer Review: Notable Features
Top-quality, Nutritious Juice That Lasts
The benefits of cold-press or masticating juicers are well-documented and appreciated by most health advocates. Unlike centrifugal juicers, they extract juice by gently crushing the fruit and then the augur presses it through a sieve. This is done at a slow speed so as not to produce heat or oxidation, thus preserving the vitamins and minerals. Cold press juicing ensures that you receive the full nutritional benefit of the fresh produce.
The Omega works at speeds of under 80RPM. The low speed prevents oxidation and heat build-up, ensuring a top-quality juice that will last for up to three days in the refrigerator with no degradation or separation. Nor will the taste or color alter. So, you can save time and effort by making large batches of juice for later use.
This dual-stage juicer is efficient in operation. It has a 200-watt, 120-volt commercial-grade motor. This drives not just a juicing system. It also grinds coffee, makes nut butters and even extrudes pasta. Use it to make baby food, grind spices, shred herbs or make frozen deserts. The machine is quiet in operation, so you won’t disturb the rest of the household while using it.
The Omega 8008 has a five setting adjustable end cap that will fully extract juices and nutrients. It automatically expels the pulp. Use it for fruit, vegetables, and even wheatgrass. It can also extract plenty of juice from green, leafy vegetables.
The key is to cut your fruit and vegetables into manageable sizes so that it fits nicely into the chute, which is only 1.5 inches wide. Because the machine has a sieve, you can control how much pulp you want in your juice. If your machine becomes clogged at any time, press the reverse button to clear.
