Omega J8004 Juicer Part III: The Best Juicer

Is it really the best juicer? It is for me. There are more expensive masticating juicers on the market that I’m sure will extract a little more juice from your fruits and vegetables, but this one is an excellent price. My conclusion: For the price I think this is the best juicer on the market, especially if you’re juicing leafy green vegetables. Don’t despair, it does a good job on fruit as well. Granted I haven’t tried kiwi, peach, apricot, dates and a lot of other soft fruit, but for my basic fruit like apples, oranges, pineapple and grapefruit it does a great job.

Why It’s The Best Juicer

  1. The price is right!
  2. 15 year warranty
  3. It’s quiet
  4. It does leafy greens GRRREAT!
  5. Easy to clean
  6. Easy to use
  7. Makes great tasting juice (better than a centrifugal)
  8. Juices wheat grass (centrifugal doesn’t)
  9. Does other things (makes sorbet)
  10. Did I mention the price?

I’d like to mention one more thing. The Omega J8004 juicer uses an auger, so it doesn’t have a blade to get dull like with a centrifugal juicer. I think that’s a big plus. After using my centrifugal juicer for a long time, the blade gets dull  making the pulp wetter. So the juicer is less efficient than it was when new. I’ve had it replaced twice (Thank you Wally World). I don’t think this will be an issue with the Omega J8004 juicer. It should be just as efficient ten years from now as it is today.

I’ve read and have heard others say that a centrifugal juicer (like the Breville) will extract more juice from hard produce like carrots, apples and beets, but I can’t say for sure. The pulp from this Omega J8004 juicer is pretty dry so the difference can’t be very much. I haven’t done a side by side comparison, so I can’t say for sure. I suppose it would really depend on “how you juice” and what brand centrifugal juicer you’re using.

After having the Omega J8004 juicer for a couple of weeks, I’ve fallen in love with it. It is the best juicer for me. Compared with a centrifugal, I believe there is a difference when it comes to the juice quality. It’s a fact, masticating juicers like the Omega J8004 produce higher quality juice. I’ve gotten use to cutting up the produce small enough to get it down the chute. At first I was cramming pieces of apple down it. I almost got a piece stuck and I almost got a carrot stuck too. I’ll pay more attention to those as well. Now I just slice apples smaller and they go down pretty quick. Since I’m mostly juicing for myself now, the extra time isn’t a problem.

The first time I juiced pineapple it clogged up the chamber. I had to follow each spear of pineapple with an apple slice. To be fair, I was putting a lot of pineapple down the chute. After a week, I’ve got the hang of it now. See the video, she juices pineapple just fine.

Do I think this is the best juicer for a family of four? Probably not. It’s too slow for me. A centrifugal (Breville) would work better for me if I had a family of four.  Use your own judgement though, because every situation is different. If you have a big family this Omega J8004 juicer might do the trick for you. For me personally, whether I’m juicing just for myself or a couple of other people, this Omega J8004 juicer gets the job done. The juice tastes great and it’s easy to clean up.

So here you have my opinion and I’m interested in hearing from you. What do you think the best juicer is? Does a masticating juicer really make better tasting juice than a centrifugal, or is it just my imagination? Thanks for reading and happy juicing!

    Hello Rich I am Regular Fan Of Your Websites. I had stared my juicing with this juicer. You are doing a great Job.

    My Tips For your Community as well as for Juicing Community:

    Tips: TIP! When juicing for the health benefits, look to using ingredients from greens such as: broccoli, chard, parsley, kale and spinach for the greatest effectiveness. Try to keep your juice content to 50-70 percent greens, making up the rest with fruits and vegetables that add better flavors.

    Juice can be considered an entire meal. A single glass of juice can really contain quite a bit of food.

    Remember to wash your equipment right after juicing. Also, certain fruits and vegetables leave behind juice that can cause stains on equipment and its parts.

    Thanks again. Happy Juicing.

    Really nice reading your thoughts on this juicer, like you I believe the masticating type of juicers are really better in terms of quality of juice produces. The heat from the juicing process is really small(if it exist at all) to cause any kind of oxidation. But for the cost, I will get a masticating juicer over a centrifugal one any day. Great post
