Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicole Love my new Omega!!
I got this Omega because the old Juicer i have does not extract all the juice out of the fruits and vegetables.Plus it is a mess to clean up.This Omega on the other hand is very easy to clean..easy to assemble and quiet.
The only thing, i did not like so far from using it just one time..is that it shakes little while juicing perhaps, i did not attach nozzle into the front part too well so i will have to check that the next time, i juice.
Also..I had to cut up fruits and veggies smaller to fit into the tube shoot...to feed into the grinder.Which took juicing much longer time wise.Plus..when you use this juicer..always use the fruits that are hard..if you do not..then Alternate between the softer fruits and veggies to harder ones..Which makes the extraction at the end better to keep things moving and not get the machine feeding tube clogged up.
Other than that..I am excited to have this juicer and hope to have it for a long long time.
I will say that i have read that you cannot put the rinds/skins of Oranges and Lemons into the grinder also, Coconut.It breaks the grinder..since it is plastic.
Avoid those things to juice in this Omega.
However, i did use 1/2 of a lemon with the rind and it was able to grind without a problem.I did cut it into very small pieces which i am sure helped.Do not run Omega for long..Take time to stop and start ..Do not run machine for more than 30 mins long when juicing.Always take time..and let machine relax and rest..to avoid any parts from cracking ..I have read many reviews and people have had issues with the grinder or blank cracking or wearing down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ilovejesus1 Quality Juicer, Reliable, Efficient and Affordable
I've had my 8006 for nearly four years now and it's been with me everywhere. I've worked with the Norwalk Juicer, the Nutrifast Juicer, a few Brevilles and I have always remained very pleased with this juicer because of its efficiency and quality in comparison to the others. The only (minor) "con" I could list would be while juicing pineapple; It produces a lot of foam for whatever reason and the pulp seems to often get trapped in the drum. For everything else aside, every fruit and veggie under the sun, they all work great with this juicer. If choosing this juicer, have awareness that you'll have to cut your produce up in smaller pieces to fit in the mouth. It isn't bothersome to me, but it may lengthen the time it takes to prepare juice. This juicer is worth every cent and makes you some money back in terms of the quantity of juice it makes from the produce your using. Omega is truly a top quality brand at a more affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debs So easy to use
My husband and I bought this a month ago or so. We absolutely love it. It's so easy to use and, more importantly, easy to clean. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to buy a juicer. I have not had experience with other juicers as this is our first one, and I wish we had bought it years ago. You do have to cut up the veggies and fruits to fit into the chute, but I don't mind doing that. If I'm going to cut them anyway, what size I have to cut them is not an issue. However, the one with the bigger chute may be more convenient for some. I just didn't want to spend the extra money. I haven't used the attachments yet, so I can't review on those. I will though as soon as I have had a chance to use the nut butter attachment. A friend of mine has used one of these juicers for years and has nothing but good things to say about the replacement policy and warranty when things break. She has always had parts replaced with no trouble. As mine is new, I haven't had this issue yet, and hopefully not for a while, but I trust her opinion, and have faith in her experience with this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizz Love it!
I did A LOT of research before picking this juicer. I looked at different brands and different models of Omega. I am VERY happy with this pick. My previous juicer was a cheap centrifugal juicer and it was extremely loud. Not only is the 8006 MUCH quieter, but it also juices greens as well as harder veggies like carrots and beets. It works on everything from apples and pineapple to ginger and turmeric root to the veggies I mentioned above--and more! My boyfriend and I drink juice very day, and the fact that we can make up enough juice to last for 3 days (because of the slow speed and the slower oxidation) is pretty awesome. Less work! Despite multiple parts, it is very easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vgchef Great juicer - easy clean-up
I've had my Omega 8006 since 2011& use it often. It makes delicious, sweet juice & extracts far more juice from the veggies & fruits than my centrifugal juicer does. It also tastes fresher. The best feature is the clean-up - easy to disassemble, I can wash it in 5 minutes, & reassembly is equally easy. My only complaint is the time necessary to cut all the veggies & fruits small enough to fit the narrow feed tube, but that's an issue with all masticating-type juicers & isn't a reflection on the Omega 8006 particularly. I've also made frozen ice creams & sherbets from fruits with this juicer (using the blank screen) as well as grinding soaked nuts & seeds for loaves & burger patties. It made the job very easy & again, clean-up was a snap. My model is chrome & looks beautiful on the kitchen counter. All in all, I would (& have) highly recommend this juicer to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gardener Mary Best thing I own
I have been using my juicer for ten years and it continues to delight! This machine juices everything - tomatoes, apples, carrots, greens and herbs, nuts. (I avoid the problem of food getting bogged down inside by rotating the items - greens can get sticky and dense but following up with apples or carrots makes everything flow again nicely). The motor is still going strong after regular, weekly use. At one point, the motor stopped working in the forward position so I called the company and after a conversation with one of the technical people, I had instructions to remove the switch and attach the wires to a redundant set of leads! I don't know of too many other products that engineer redundancies into their products. How fantastic! This is a great product and a great company. If I ever need another juicer, I'll get the same kind! Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Violet Only juicer I use!
I have purchased a juicer for each of my children for their own home; my own is now 12 years old and I have only replaced one part, which I unfortunately broke myself. It extracts better than any other juicer, it does not heat the juice, an everyone is confident we are getting the most juice from our fruits and vegetables

Rated 1 out of 5 by Maori Don't lose your money
I bought this product and it was working fine until the juicing screen broke only 3 months later; I bought a replacement part and it works for 3 months again. I make only 1 or 2 ounces of wheat grass daily, now I'm losing my wheat grass and unable to juice it until the new screen gets to me. This is a very delicate machine, it surprises me that It can only be use to make one ounce of juice a day and it only last three months until it breaks.
