Omega Juicers Omega Juicer J8008C Juicer Extractor and Nutrition Center Creates Fruit Vegetable and Wheatgrass Juice Quiet Motor Slow Masticating Dual-Stage Extraction Automatic Pulp Ejection, Known issue with motor-amazon did not replace when notified.

I really like this juicer, but it does create more foam than i thought it would. Also, i wonder why some juice keeps creeping into where the auger is turning?. Maybe i am feeding too fast. I do love the solid construction, and the relative quietness of the machine.

First of all i have a breville j98xl centrifugal juicer. I wanted a better juicer so i started researching masticating juicers and came upon the omega 8000 series machines. When looking at the omega brand models i became confused. What’s the difference between them?. I watched some youtube videos and read tons of reviews online and this is what i found:first of all, they are all very similar. They all use an auger that squeezes, or crushes the produce slowly to make juice. The juice drains through the bottom hole and the pulp ejects out the front. The auger presses the juice in two stages to get the most out of it. This machine is referred to as a ‘single auger juicer. ‘the older models used a white colored auger which is made of melamine plastic. The newer models have a black auger which is a much harder plastic material made by ge which replicates the hardness of a stone. (think of stone grinding) as far as i can tell all of the omega models are now coming the new black auger, which is supposed to be 8 times harder than the older ones. In the end i decided upon the 8008 model. Which is the same as the 8007 only in a different color.

I am using it daily and love it. Nothing works better for green juices. I am drinking a daily mixture of kale or some other leafy green along with carrots and apple. I have had perhaps a dozen juicers over the years, but nothing has worked well with leafy greens. Also, the other types of juices really aerates the juice too much and waste a lot of the green juice. I purchased this to supplement my diet with more green juice. This machine is tough enough to have replaced my other juicers for now.

Comments from buyers

“Great bang for the buck and excellent juice quality
, Awesome Juicer!
, So far so good with this juicer

I like that this juicer handles pretty much everything i throw at it. It makes easy work of juicing fruits, veggies and even frozen bananas and strawberries. I haven’t tried its other functions. I also like that it is easy to clean after use. The only hard item to clean is the filter but the juicer came with a brush which was a nice and thoughtful addition. It also sets up very easily and everything goes together quite nicely and easily so there is no fussing with parts or anything like that. Sometimes when i juice apples or berries, the mashed fruit gets sort of stuck near the spinning screw instead of exiting the machine easily like carrots or other harder fruit does. Putting through more fibrous fruits and veggies helps to clear this out, but it would be nice if it didn’t happen. Also, after a couple of weeks of use, juice seems to get past some of the rubber washers and behind a plate on the face of the machine making the large plastic lock get gummed up. I have to remove 4 screws to get to this area to clean it which is inconvenient.

Had for over a year and it’s still juicing like the day we opened the box. Powerful, juices everything nicely.

The first one i bought broke. It took longer than expected for the new one because omega did not process the order correctly. Problems i have are:when juicing soft things like berries or apples it turns to mush and will not strain through the filter unless something fiberouse is used as a chaser. I have not tried to make butter or noodles yet but i’m working on it. This machine will take all your greens or fruits, along with an entire marijuana plant and anything else you can think of that might benefit you.

I was pretty sad when my old omega juicer died, even though i’d had it for 20 years. After much research, it seemed that this omega cold press juicer would be my best choice – and we are thrilled with it. Quiet, impossibly easy to use and clean – omega has been doing juicing right for a long time.

The juicer works very well and the pulp is practically dry when juicing fruits and veggies. This guarantees you get the most juice from your produce. The product comes with a little brush to brush off any pulp that can stick to the inner crevices of the machine while cleaning. Overall i am very pleased with my purchase.

My family and i absolutely love this juicer. I haven’t attempted to use it for anything other then juice yet, but so far what i bought it for- it’s perfection. *update 12/29/2014: i used the juicer to grind coffee beans christmas morning, it was a lot quieter then my traditional coffee grinder. It also produced a much finer and even grind. I have now decided that this will become my full time grinder for coffee as well as my daily juicer.

Disappointed the nozzles do not fit. That was the whole point of me getting this particular juicer, because of its versatility. Now i can’t use it for that. Otherwise everything else is functional. No issues with the juicer its self.

I searched too much about issue of buying juicer. First must work low rpm & masticarting system, also must work good with vegetables and must have optimum price. Several months has past to use this juicer. I bought 8008 and my friend has bought 8006. Actually there is no quality,technical or performance difference between them. However i like this metalic gear.

Highly recommend this powerful juicer. Excellent quality and juicing with dry substance discharge, meaning it literally got all the juice out of the produce.

I never put much thought into juicing until it was recommended by my hydrotherapist. She insisted that i try it out after taking numerous things about my dietary needs and body type into consideration. As an o-positive blood type, i love to eat meats and can naturally and easily indulge in high amounts of protein without major impact to how my body functions. I don’t get sludgy after a good steak. Rather, dense carbohydrates are my kryptonite, but i’ve done well in staying away from those. What a high protein diet did accomplish, however, was a stopped up colon. Apologies if this embarrassed you, but the body does what it needs to do, and it is what it is. Anyway, the right types of vegetables in my diet provide natural enzymes that help my body break down the proteins. I bought the omega because i was looking for a juicer that would squeeze as much juice from vegetables as possible.

I juice about 15 lbs of veggies once a week and have juice prepped for the whole week sitting in my fridge and ready to go.

Absolutely love the omega series. I upgraded from the 8006 to the 8008. I think if you can find the 8006 cheaper, stick with that. The touted larger opening and better auger do not seem to make that big a difference to me. This juicer absolutely always extracts all the juice leaving no wet pulp. It also does a very good job juicing greens. The only negative thing and it is minor, is that juicing things like pineapples, blueberries, strawberries will have you needing to disassemble and clean out the soft pulp before you can go on juicing.

I owned omega j8006 and nc900hdc. I did like the j8006 then gave it to my sister to buy the 900 version. The 900 was total disaster, i really hate it, then i return it after a few trialthe 8008 doesn’t have much review but i like the compact size and one review prior to mine here. I took the risk to try it out, everything went very well as good as the 8006. I personally think the 800 & 900 model, omega blew that ones. Adjustable knob is useless and the chute attached to the top plate is harder to clean. I prefer it can be attached. I will highly recommend the 8008 model. If money is object to you, then get the 8006 or 8007 (same as 8008 except it’s silver not chrome). I like to match with my other chrome kitchen appliances, that’s personal preference.

I’ve had this juicer for almost 4 weeks now. Been juicing every day once, sometimes twice each day. I am thoroughly happy with it. I’d say juicing takes about 15-20 minutes tops to make the juice and clean up the parts. I make about 2 pints per session. The juice that results is very delicious, and the machine appears to be very efficient extracting the juice as the remaining pulp is extremely dry. Also the machine, being a horizontally layed out, fits conveniently on the counter top. I would recommend this juicer to anyone.

I got this 8008 a couple weeks ago, and it broke the first time i used it. I was juicing apples and then was going to move to carrots, but while i was juicing the apples, it made a loud pop noise and then stopped working all together. Amazon replaced it and i’ve used the replacement. This time i started with vegetables, carrots, kale, beets, greens, and it did all of them fine, but i finished with apples and limes and these got stuck in the juicer. I guess this might work fine for my purposes as long as i alternate the fruit with vegetables. But it’s awfully expensive of a juicer to not be able to do just apples or just oranges, as my kid sometimes wants. Basically, you might need a second juicer for fruits if you want to have apples mixed in. I’ve only used the replacement once, so we’ll see how long it lasts.

I have to say this masticating juicer is built strong as a tank and will no doubt last forever; and i’m guessing may be one of the best masticating juicers on the market in it’s price point. I’m new into juicing and bought this model as it is more efficient as a percentage of volume in extracting juice from leafy greens (kales, watercress, spinach) than a rotary juicer–like the breville 98xl, which i also bought–and that one is more efficient in extracting juice from the higher water-content fruits and veggies like carrots, tomatoes, apples, oranges, etc. So i figured they would compliment one another: masticating omega for the leafy stuff; and high speed rotary breville for the high-water content stuff. But what i found is for me is:– the omega involved way too much cutting and prepping as the chute is only like 1. 25′ wide versus the like 3′ wide chute of the breville– by nature of the slower masticating design versus high speed rotary; it is so much slower in extracting juice, even with non-leafy stuff: it takes a significant while, and it can get ‘clogged. — the volume of the juice holding tanks is so much smaller than the breville; i’m guessing the breville has a 1-liter juice container, and the omega about 25% of that (not good when you want to make drinks for two. )– by design; the juice if more fibrous in the omega versus more liquid in the breville. — time and effort: the omega is messy and time consuming for clean up with a lot more parts–smaller ones with more nooks and crannies that are hard to get to to clean; and with a lot more fibrous gunk packed on to it after juicing. And this was the big deal-breaker for me.

Provides clear juice, unlike the high speed blender types that yield a smoothie type product. It is large so storage needs to be a consideration. If you have the room, it is great.

I purchased this unit a while back, but felt it was time to put in my two cents. Built to last, strong motor, makes great juices and butters, has a easy clean up, and seems to still be going strong. Cons for the unit are it does not like too soft of fruits. The screen on the juicer get clogged when too soft of fruit is used. I have got around this flaw by doing a soft fruit and then following up with a crunchy veggie or fruit. Would buy againnin heart beat.

I had been using another juicing machine for a few month before it broke down. The amount of juice yield from that machine was not great, as the pulp still very moist. I thought that was how juicing machine work, until i got this omega 8008 juicer. The juice yield is much better than i thought, and most importantly, this machine is quiet and almost vibration free.

Filter-thingy gets clogged with lemon or garlic but that’s understandable. Inspired by sprouts (of tahoe) we now have a ‘hot shot’ every morning (grass, ginger, lemon and hot spice). Recommended by a guy who hates most things.

Oster FPST2574CRBW 6 Speed Hand Mixer : The best. Why go for expensive mixer

Once you have it on hand, you can tell it is high quality mixer, and material. It is a gift for the price that is sold. I highly recommend this product.

This is a great mixer – would have given it 5 stars but (as with most consumer products in today’s market) the build quality has obviously gone down to accommodate higher profits.

Oster FPST2574CRBW 6 Speed Hand Mixer with Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Efficient Mixing with 225 Watts of Power and 6 Speed Control
  • Includes Stainless Steel Bowl with Lid for Mixing and Storage
  • Full Size Chrome Beaters Included
  • Ergonomically Designed for comfortable mixing
  • One Touch Beater Eject Button

I am delighted with the hand mixer. It fits snuggly in the mixing bowl, making it easy to store. It works real well and feels sturdy. I had second thoughts about purchasing it because someone commented the speeds were too high, but the speeds seem okay for me. I will admit the low speed is not very slow. You certainly get more than what you paid for with this item.

Gift for my son and his girlfriend setting up new apt. This looked like a great solution for now rather than spend a small fortune for a large mixer, when this was such a good value. Oater is a brand i’ve used for years so no issues there, and the fact that you had the convenience of the stainless mixing bowl/storage bowl w/ lid made it an even more practical purchase for them.

I don’t actually use this little hand mixer, but my wife does and she loves it. It’s been going strong for about a year so far.

Oster FPST2574CRBW 6 Speed Hand Mixer with Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl : Happy with the power of the machine. The beaters were hard to ejectat first, but they seem to be getting easier.

A very nice mixer that has awesome power.I love bakingdes moines, iowa.

It works great and is incredibly powerful. I think it could probably mix cement.

When this does the great job for you.

It works perfectly and actually has 6 speeds as advertised. My only reservation in giving 5 stars is that the cord just hangs there which makes it hard to store. I wrap it around the body of the mixer but it just falls off and without a solid handle you cannot wrap the cord around the handle to store it. I’m spoiled – my other hand mixer had an automatic cord reel which stored the cord within the body of the mixer and out of the way.

I was worried because the beaters were a little rusted. Not enough to send it back bit the quality wasn’t what i had hoped for.

I have not had any issues with this mixer. The settings are a little fast but that’s not really an issue for me.

It works well and storing in it’s own bowl is a big plus. Very powerful with a heavy-duty cooling fan. Other commenters are correct about not having a slow speed but that doesn’t seem to bother my lady.

It’s simple to operate, and the speeds are just right. Having the bowl to store it in is a plus. I have a kitchen aid stand mixer but haven’t needed to drag it out for anything so far. The oster has more than enough power.

I like the stainless mixing bowl. Great for storage and is a good size. Very glad i made this purchase.

I use all the time when i bake cookies, cupcakes and cakes.

I read reviews and thought i might not like this mixer because everyone said it started off too fast. I did not find that to be an issue. Has enough power to work through thick batters and i don’t have any problem with thin batters. I guess the only down side for me is it seems a little front heavy so it tips over easily when you rest the mixer.

Just wish it had more power. If you need one that can handle something thicker than cake batter, spend more money and get a different one.

Mixer, comes with a really nice metal bowl, mixer and beaters all fit in the bowl with a lid.

I use my new mixer quite a bit, and fine that it works quite well. Am very pleased with how it works.

It’s lowest setting is pretty fast, but once you get used to it then it’s not a problem. The mixing bowl it comes with is pretty good as well and serves as a nice storage container for the mixer and beaters.

Great mixer,very attractive and is great to have a bowl for use and storage. I just used it and i really love having so many speeds. Making some candy for the holidays really needs a great mixer. You can tell it is great quality. I hope it lasts as long has my other hand mixer. I like the ease of the hand mixer,and i don’t like all those gadgets the come with the big mixers. Keep it simple to use and simple to store. I also feel the price was great. Thanks amazon and the seller.

Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 2 Slice Toaster – Updated design takes 2 stars off what was once a 5 star toaster

Hamilton beach classic chrome is a nice little toaster at a good price. Works nice and is compact in size. Bagel setting toasts one side, the flat sides of bagel. In front of the slots, there is a picture that shows which way the bagel should be placed. Toast setting has many settings and toasts just right. Crumb tray is large and easy to access. The hamilton beach toaster is replacing a very expensive name brand toaster that worked for only a few years with very light usage and it burned everything. No matter the setting, so for such s small price i am very pleased.

My way-too-large toaster oven died, may it rip. I used the oven maybe 10 times a year and debated if that was enough to warrant the size of the footprint. I opted to go with a toaster – and was overwhelmed at the number of and prices of toasters. Jeez – i just want crispy bread with some convenience. You could easily spend $80-$120 for a toaster – it really was more than i expected. I decided to narrow it down to amazonprime and under $60. It was down to this one and two others. I just liked the look of this one and it had the features that i wanted. It came super-fast (as always) and it looks very retro. Nice, shiny chrome and good design on the knobs.

I had the previous version of this toaster. When it finally gave up the ghost, we looked at other toasters and quickly came back to the ‘tried and true’ for what we saw as the best build quality for the money. What we didn’t realize is that hamilton beach has tweaked the design of this toaster. The cord is shorter and starts in the middle of the toaster’s underside. There are cord guides to take up excess cord and to make it easier (i suppose) to have the cord come out the back, side, or front according to user preference. I don’t like cord clutter any more than the next person, but we had to move the toaster closer to the outlet so that it would reach. The other design change is more of a hassle: the crumb tray that used to pull out from the front of the toaster, now only pulls out from the rear. Emptying the crumb tray is no longer effortless – our toaster lives on a tiny counter that doesn’t have a lot of space for maneuvering it so that we can turn the toaster around (and wait for the it to cool off first, if we’ve just used it), in order to extract the crumb tray. Here are the specifications for the Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 2 Slice Toaster:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Lifts slices higher with toast boost
  • Cool touch exterior
  • Auto shutoff
  • Extra-wide slots
  • Toast boost

Received this hamilton beach toaster yesterday. Last toaster was also a hamilton beach, which we had for many years and is still working, but not all the heating wires are glowing red hot, so it doesn’t toast evenly. This new one also has heating wires that aren’t lighting up red and it’s brand new. That worried me, so i tried a couple pieces of bread to see if it toasted better than our old one. The toast does look fairly evenly toasted, even though a few of the heating wires don’t light up red. I could return it, but another one would probably do the same or worse. This is made in mexico like most everything else, so i wasn’t expecting the best toaster for $19. This toaster some what (this is shiny stainless steel and no part is brushed stainless steel like it kind of looks in this picture) matches our kitchen appliances, where the other white plastic hb toaster didn’t. The old white plastic toaster didn’t get hot. This toaster does get very hot on every part of the toaster except the black plastic parts and amazon says the stainless steel doesn’t get hot on the sides. If you have young kids keep them away from this toaster when it’s hot.I think every metal toaster does get hot as it would have to be very well insulated not to get hot.

This is an awesome toaster and works exactly as it states in the description. I had no problem browning my toast to golden perfection on both sides of my toast. Be aware there are bagel slots which will toast one side and warm the other, as that’s how bagels are toasted. The biggest issue i had was the price. Toasters should not cost $35 but it seems all good toasters are running about that price these days.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Made in Mexico and their quality control isn’t very good, as I found out with this new stainless steel toaster!
  • Updated design takes 2 stars off what was once a 5 star toaster
  • Nice little toaster!

I had gotten this same toaster as a christmas gift 15 years ago and one side finally gave out. I was super sad because i loved this toaster, so i hopped on amazon to search to see if they still made them and they do. My only complaint is the crumb drawers are now on the back instead of the front. I think the front was better because it was more convenient.
