I did my homework before buying. I read many, many reviews (on different websites) and checked out youtube videos. It juices greens and carrots equally well and the pulp is very dry. Juice wet things like cucumbers and apples first. Follow with greens and hard foods like carrots and celery. They will push the soft pulp through the system. I highly recommend this juicer. I have used it almost daily for a month.
Works great its my best investment, if put four different colors of vegetables in your juicer, and cook three different cereals like otmeal, millet, and rice, and you drink and eat this every day, you will see the big difference in your health, and your life, almost in the next two weeks, that fast god bless.
I had been using a centrifugal juicer before but due to the cleaning of the basket, it pretty much just sat on the counter. I researched and watched a lot of videos on masticating juicers, especially all the different omega juicers. I chose this one for it’s multi functions. It’s not a problem at all to cut the fruits and vegetables smaller to fit in the chute. It really squeezes all the juice out of everything. I even put the whole lemon or lime right in it, no messy peeling. Much quieter than the centrifugal juicer. Seems to have a much darker, richer color of juices too. I like knowing that i’m getting much more vitamins and nutrients.
I have owned a breville centrifugal juicer for several years. I started noticing my juicer was making frothy, slightly bitter, oxydized juices. I finally got over the fact that i have to spend another wad of cash to buy another juicer and go this baby. From very first use, the difference is crystal clear. This is a huge upgrade in terms of juice quality. Just thick, heavy, smooth tasting juice. I don’t see any browning or oxydation, or any more bitterness. It takes a lot longer to juice though, but i think will get used to it. After all, we are juicing this for health, and the extra work is a form of exercise.
We use it twice a week and love it. It’s easy to clean, quick to assemble and take apart, and makes an impressive amount of juice. I love how quiet it is because i can still juice while my youngest naps. Customer service is also amazing. It’s a great way to introduce vegetables to a picky eater’s palate. My juice is almost entirely veggies, but for my kids i make a juice blend from 8 carrots, 2 green apples, half a lemon, and some ginger and it’s very well received. I plan on eventually adding cucumber, then spinach or kale once i feel like they will be willing to drink it.
Amazing – so glad i bought this. I’ve researched so many this last year and finally bought this one. I just bought one for a friend as a thank you gift. It works great and easy to clean.
- Great for 1 or 2 cups. Sucks at making big batches for the fridge.
- Upgraded from a centrifugal juicer, and I’m in love
- My favorite juicer, and worth every penny!
It really does the job extracting as much juice as possible, i bought it to replace a centrifugal juicer and it extracts significantly more juice, the pulp is practically dry. I didn’t realize when i bought it that it has attachments for making pasta, nut milks and nut butters. I haven’t used it for that yet but i plan to. I highly recommend this juicer, i honestly couldn’t be more pleased.
This is my first juicer and i so glad i took the time to read reviews. The pulp is dry which indicates that i am getting all the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables i am juicing. It comes with other nozzles for making your own nut butter or noodles.
Well made and does a great job. Just a little slow as limited size intake of produce.
Here’s a quick review on this juicer with leafy greens. (if you’re planning on juicing mostly fruit, check out some of the other reviews as they’ll be of more help). Here’s my experience with the omega j8007s for making green juice:pros- efficient. Pulp comes out like a dry rope. – feed adjustment on front means dryer pulp. – cleans up easily – takes approx 5 min to clean, dry and reassemble. – no mess – no drippy juice or pulp on my counter tops. – minimal foam – less air in juice means healthier juice- cool – doesn’t heat the juice up like many juicers do. – soft greens, hard greens – it handles them all – easily. – virtually pulp free – plus, comes with a fine mesh strainer- 15 year warranty – wow, who does that?- small footprint – doesn’t take up much space on my counter. – silver color looks pretty nice actually – glad i chose it. Cons:- you need to cut things up more to fit the smaller food tube. – slower than high speed juicers – but that means less air, less heat. Example of the kind of juices you can make:today i made a 16 oz glass of juice from dandelion greens, fennel, romaine lettuce, cucumber and broccoli – it was quick & easy.
Sturdy, high quality and yeilds the most juice from leafy greens. A must have for the green juice lovers.

We started juicing about a year ago. My husband had researched juicers, and although we knew masticating juicers were supposed to be better, we weren’t ready to jump into that price point. If i knew then what i know now, i would have gone straight to a machine like this one. It’s much quieter, and faster/easier to clean. The footprint is about the same, but the base can sit back along the counter, whereas our vertical centrifugal juicer needs to be towards the front to clear the top cupboards. The base is pretty much the size and shape of a toaster. I like that this model has the metal screens and thicker plastic cones. There’s a lot less surface area to clean than our old juicer, and no sharp edges to watch out for. With the centrifugal design, we’d have chunks of apple or carrot get shot into the waste bin, and lots of stuff sprayed along the top of the outgoing chute. It also sometimes escaped through the pieces of the juicer, and sprayed the walls.
Does what it is supposed to, most other reviews cover this well. Easy easy cleanup and reassembly. Only downsides for me;as many others have said the feed chute is quite small so be prepared to pre slice items and exhibit a bit of patience. This type of juicer does not like mushy fruits and veggies. Is anything less than crisp and ripe it will create mush in the cylinder that you hopefully have enough firm fruits and veggies to help clear. Great juices can be made and it handles leafy greens and wheatgrass like a champ.
I have been making amazing juices that i would be paying an arm and leg for at my area juice bars. This is very easy to put together and take apart for cleaning. I am very pleased with this purchase.
I wanted to get a juicer for better health and i have searched the reviews on a lot of different juicers both written and on youtube and the omega j8007s juicer was the one that seemed best suited for me. I’m glad i bought this juicer it’s suppose to be one of the best for juicing leafy greens and ginger root and i can tell you that it does juice them very well. It does pretty good with apples and carrots but produces a little less juice than a fast juicer would. Slow juicers are suppose to have the superior quality juice which could be argued. This juicer also has a 15 year warranty. It comes with a registration card that you mail in and if anything breaks on it from normal use they will replace it. I’m very happy with this juicer and use it almost every day. New technology is always on the way but for now i believe this is one of the better juicers you can get. It also does more than just juice and has some extra attachments. Omega has newer juicers than this one but for me this was the best value and does everything i need it to do.
I juice a lot and the quality of the juice that comes out of this muscular info juicer is by far better than my old centrifugal one. The juicers feel richer and creamier. I was thinking of buying an upright masculating juicer, however i am not a fan of the foam in the juice. This one products minimal foaming despite being slower. This is a great machine to improve your health and i think everyone should own a slow juicer.
I waited a few weeks before writing this because i wanted to get past my ‘first impressions’ and see if i still loved using it and if i found any flaws by using it more than the first time. I watched several videos of this juicer in use and the one guy i’ve seen more than the others always preached putting in soft fruit or leafy greens followed by something hard like a carrot. He even uses a carrot to plunge the leafy greens and soft fruits into the chute and lets it chew the end of the carrot off each time. I have followed this routine and it works perfectly. I was most impressed to see this thing grab and pull an entire stalk of celery down the chute and devour it. That means much less time in prep and more time in juicing. Of course you still have to cut down the apples and oranges, pineapple and beets into slim enough pieces to fit in the tube, but i absolutely love being able to wad up a leaf of kale and stuff it down the tube, stem and all and watch it pull it in. I keep the output cap adjusted to the middle setting and the pulp comes out pretty dry and the juice is great. Even with the pile of greens, (kale, spinach, celery and more) the juice doesn’t have hardly any foam on the top when i finish.
Low 80RPM Rotation Speed
I am so happy to finally have a masticating slow juicer. Only thing is i thought the waste would be drier so had to knock one star, but for theprice point excellent buy. Its very easy to clean as well.
So quiet, so easy to use, great instruction manual, don’t mind the mindfulness needed to cut veggies small enough through chute, love that it works for all various greens and has easy to switch setting nob. Everything comes out dry after one juicing as others say. Clean up and put together is simple. Only concern is living in a wet and super damp climate some little rubber areas tucked into pieces that can’t be removed may be hard to clean and dry and may collect mold around deep inner edges but will see.
I have no comparison to other masticating juicers but it seems to work well. My mom has the exact one and has been using it daily for over a year now.
After reading countless reviews and comparisons, i picked this juicer to fit my needs. It was very reasonably priced compared to other juicers and i liked the long warranty. The packaging was great as it protected against damage. Set up, use and clean up is easy. I am very pleased with it’s performance, the small feed tube is not a problem once you get used to how to feed all ingredients in properly to prevent jamming. (the reverse mode comes in handy for that) i appreciate how quiet it is and the pulp does come out very dry, ensuring the maximum yield of juice. I recommend this product to everyone who wants an affordable, efficient juicer.
Solid motor, handles beets/carrots with no problems. Carrying handle on top is actually a plus. Produces dry pulp, so it is extracting, and makes good juice. But, not happy with this design. It does have a problem with soft stuff (cucumber/orange) as it just doesn’t seem to able to push it through. If i alternate – cucumber, then carrots, then cucumber, etc. But what if i just wanted cucumber or fruit juice. ? my main complaints are these: 1) it’s a masticating juicer, which means you can make bigger batches of juice to put in the fridge, no need to juice only as you’re ready to drink it. But the container that catches the juice is maybe 2 cups. So if you’re making a pitcher of juice, it means juicing for a while, stopping, pulling out the juice-catch-container, cleaning out the screen, pouring juice into pitcher, putting everything back, then resume juicing. This increases the time and the mess. If the whole machine sat up higher, a bigger catch-container could be put underneath. 2) there is no ‘close’ valve on the juicer.
So far i’ve really enjoyed this juicer and masticating type is by far the best. It’s a very well made machine, though mine came with a crack in it top frame that i didn’t notice till a few weeks after using it. It’s very easy to clean, assemble and disassemble. While the masticating parts are well made, it is rather disappointing to have the external housing of the unite in plastic, making it look cheap. For this price, we should get stainless. I would recommend this product, though get it when it’s on sale as the full price is not worth it unless they make it in stainless for the same price. You cannot just jam a lot of items down it’s feed tube since it’s narrow, so you must have patients when chopping the fruits and vegetable for feeding. It take a lot more time to prep than to juice. It does have the ability and attachments to make nut butters, pasta, and bread. Yet to use these capabilities.
Continuous Juicing with Automatic Pulp Ejection
I will start off by saying i am a first time juicer. I caught the bug when my wife and i decided to try a 4 day juice cleanse from a company that delivered the fresh cold pressed juices and charged us a little over $300 for the two of us. It was a surprise every juice on whether or not we was going to like that one, and sadly more of them were a not than a yes. One thing i did notice though was more energy and alertness. I finally decided to start researching the juicers and after reading many reviews and watching many videos i decided to try this one. I don’t think i could have made a better choice. So far i have made several different types of juices using many different ingredients including apple,spinach,kale, pineapple,cucumbers, ginger and many other textured items and all have gone through like a champ. The juice comes out amazing every time and i love the fact i can ‘tweek’ the recipes that i don’t love until i do. On top of everything else, the clean up of this machine literally takes less than 3 minutes making it perfect if you want to juice and go, or if your like me and just hate to clean.
This omega really squeezes all the juice out of all the vegetables. I’m very happy with how simple it assembles, clean’s and reassembles.
I have used this juicer now for over a year and love it. It is quick and easy to use and clean up is a breeze. The juice quality is incredible and delicious. Cant wait to make juices for my little one:-)highly recommend for juicing and making nut milks as well as berry sorbetvery reliable and well made.
It works just seems t0o expensive for what it is. An overpriced dildo than masticates fruits and vegetables.
I am in love with this juicer, i use it at least once a day and it never fails me. I did have a little hiccup when i first received it, but the manufacturer was very quick to resolve the issue.
Absolutely love this juicer. The only complaint i have is the prep work requires a smaller sized fruit or veggie to fit into the input chute. Clean up is easy – front unit easily disassembles and a quick rinse / brushing takes care of the remaining pulp. The output juice has just the right amount of pulp and not much foam. The output fiber is very dry – i don’t think much moisture remains – i’ve tried putting it through again and didn’t get much extra juice. I also recieved the adjustable output module as a surprise bonus with this order. Great price (cheaper than local bb&b) and delivered in 2 days (thanks amazon).
The problem i have is not being able to register the product warranty. The website listed on the packing slip does not exist on the website. I just hope that the product hold up, otherwise i will be out of money. If anyone reading this review have any information that will help me register my product.
Includes 6 Nozzles and 1 Juicing Screen
This is my first time writing a review on a product but felt i had to because this omega juicer works so well. I had a jack lalane juicer before, it worked well for many years but the rubber went bad, so i had to search for a new one. The omega juicer works way better, less wastage of vegetables and fruits. . Excellent for leafy greens, be sure to mix up everything before eg. Kale, spinach (i cut everything up small) apple, cucumber, then place in the hopper. What comes out is very little waste compared to what i got with the jack lalane which spit out whole leaves, small chunks of fruits. . So you essentially had to use more products to get the amount of juice you want. The masticating action of the omega works slower which gives more time to extract all the juice. I also love that the juice contains a little fiber, which we all need. The omega juicer is so easy to clean, in 3 minutes you are done.
Since i got it i have juiced almost every day. The pulp produced is very dry indicating the maximum amount of juice was extracted. I used to avoid juicing bc i dreaded the tedious cleanup but this machine really makes it simple. The only screen to scrub is quite small and the stiff brush tool that comes with it makes it easy. The juice stays fresh longer than with the high speed juicers too. So glad i switched from the centrifugal breville juicer to this slow juicer.
This is my first juicer & i’ve investigated a lot before purchasing. If you have the money to purchase a champion juicer or a greenstar juicer, please do so, they are way better. But if you’re like me & want to try something juicing without spending too much then go ahead. I’ve used it twice, the juicer does pretty good except that with soft fruits or vegetables it gets clogged up & you have to stop to clean it before continuing. I tried green apple & broccoli juice, with the apple it did great but the broccoli clogged it. Then i tried orange/mandarin & bell pepper and same thing happened with the orange & mandarin. Like i said, it’s an ok juicer but i really hoped it could have been better since it cost $200esta es la primer vez que tengo un extractor de jugo e investigue mucho antes de comprarlo. Si usted puede comprar un champion o un greenstar, le recomendo que lo hag, son mucho major. Pero si ustes es como yo que quiere intenar hacer jugos sin romperse el bolsillo, pues este es un product mas o menos. Lo use dos veces y si extrae jugo pero siento que deja mucha pulpa dentro del extractor y cuando se abre para limpar todo ese residuo se tira.
I received this product about 2 – 3 weeks ago and so far i’m really pleased. We’ve been juicing lots of apples and have probably juiced about 7 gallons of cider so far. We haven’t tried juicing anything else yet since we finished up canning all our vegetables. We got this mainly for apples. The machine is quite quiet with little vibration. I highly recommend this product.
Takes less time to clean than my last one. After reading the review from other people, i thought that it would take a long time to juice, but it doesn’t. My other concern was the noise, but it isn’t too loud, it just sounds like grinding. My last one sounded more like a blender. I do get more juice out of this juicer and very little food particles. The vegetable ‘meat’ comes out very dry. I haven’t used the strainer, because i haven’t felt the need. My only complaint is that it doesn’t do lettuce as well as everything else.
I’ve had this for at least a year and although i don’t use it every day, it does get used and it’s still functioning just fine. Cleaning it after use is a bit of a pain in the neck but totally worth it.
My 1st juicer was an omega back in 1992 it lasted 12 years two after the warranty ran out. I’ve had two other juicers since, one still going strong from sam’s club (9yrs) and the breville elite which i had to return after 5 months. Disappointed to say the least. This omega 8007 is the last juicer i want to own. Clean up time is quick & easy, under five minutes. I grow my own wheatgrass and the pulp is fairly dry even though i put it thru a second time for good measure. Ginger root & tumeric root juice very well in this juicer( i make tea out of the pulp). All my leafy greens come out dry after one cycle. Carrots, beets, kale, spinach, parsley,cilantro, broccoli, celery cucumbers. Apple, pears & pineapple are the only fruit i use. This juicer gives me the greatest bang for my buck. 22 years of juicing and the omega has turned it into a religion for me & the two year detoxification program i’m committed too completing. By the way i juice & drink about 64 ounces a day on most days this juicer stands up to the task, the breville elite did not last. 8 months into it and have lost 80 pounds juicing the items mentioned above.
I bought this juicer for my daughter, who has crohn’s disease. It is easy to use and clean. She used it to make carrot juice, and it did an excellent job. She will definitely be using it a lot for lots of other juices and for food processing.
The omega juicer arrived in perfect condition with no visible damage to the shipping box. We have been researching for juicers for a while now and decided to go with the omega brand. The juicer is very powerful and worked as advertised. This juicer is very well made and i do believe it will last for a long time. Cleaning is very easy and straight forward. I’m thinking about buying another one for my mom on her birthday.
Tested this and it works better than i expected. Juice outlet screen didn’t get clogged before i had a good amount of juice. Easy to take off, cleaned with sink faucet spray and back on in very little time. I look forward to harvest season to make jams and jellies much faster than traditional method.
This is our first juicer and we were not sure how often we would actually use it. We liked that in addition to juicing we could make fresh pasta and grind coffee beans or make nut butter with this juicer. So we could justify the space this would take up in our pantry because of all the things we can do with it. We have used it for juicing and we have nothing to compare it to, but the pulp seems like maybe it could have gotten more juice out of it. However, i have heard many people complain about how difficult other juicers are to clean and this juicer is easy to clean. Everything comes apart and you can easily wash all parts. There is a brush that comes with it that cleans the screens very effectively. We had watched videos on using this juicer and my husband thought it would be very slow and take a long time. It does not take a long time at all. We found the speed fine both for juicing and for extruding pasta.
My daughter in law has friends come over and the do juicing gatherings. I’ve used it for apple and carrot juice and it is addictive. Met my expectations and more.
I will only buy omega when it comes to masticating juicers and this one fits the bill for the price.
I did a lot of research prior to buying this, and was deciding between this and the hurom. This is a great juicer that really extracts everything from the produce you run through it. The pulp is immensely dry (bonus: great compost for the garden). I have juiced kiwi, apple, greens, pineapple, carrots, and beets with no issues. I also made almond milk that was great. I’ve barely had it for a week and have already used it numerous times. I’ve stored juice 2-3 days ahead in mason jars and have had no issues with taste. The auger & parts feel very sturdy. Overall, the machine feels like a piece of kitchen equipment that i will have for quite awhile to come.
Make sure to cut your veggies small. Wheatgrass in small amounts and cut in half. That’s why i rated this with 4 and half stars.
