Rated 5 out of 5 by Amber Nothing short of Awesome!
I wanted a juicer that was multi-functional and capable of juicing all veggies and fruits without any exceptions. This is it!
The 8006 nutrition system leaves the pulp dry, so I know I'm getting the most bang for my buck. I've used the pulp in pasta sauce, soups, quiche, and for baking.
It's also very quiet. I expected something similar to my food processor, but it's 10x more quiet.
The cleaning is pretty quick, honestly. Just rinsing and quickly using the provided scrubber brush to get the bit of extra pulp off the juicing screen. That's it.
I've made various nut butters with ease and I'm looking forward to making my own pasta next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmbeery2011 Love this Juicer!
We bought this juicer about 3.5 years ago. We have done several juice fasts with it along with daily juicing. We just love it! It's easy to clean, put together and provides quality juice. We also love it's special attachment for making other items, such as frozen fruit desserts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rdhudas Amazing and SIMPLE!!!
I bought the 8006 Masticating Juicer 5 days ago and I am truly shocked. I read a great deal of information regarding green juicing prior to making my purchase. My research revealed that people quit juicing because of the time and labor involved in cleanup. The 8006 is a SIMPLE SOLUTION to what has become a complex task for juicers using a lesser quality product. The 8006 has five pieces, I repeat five pieces of hardware that assemble and disassemble with ease making cleanup SIMPLE. The pieces are large too...No chance of losing anything down the drain. Learning to juice with the 8006 has been SIMPLE. I was astonished to find the instruction book short and concise because it's truly that SIMPLE. The Juicer is truly versatile as it does a great job with wheatgrass, ginger, greens, apples, and nuts. I highly recommend this juicer for any beginner or anyone who values daily green juicing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CynT Excellent, but... less plastic please!
Last year I purchased Model 8006. The only initial concern I had was the amount of plastic in which food has to come in contact.
Although the machine is working perfectly, the "Black" (plastic) Auger is now tinted green along the mid-section with stripes of white (worn off plastic?) along the "blades" and the Juicer Screen is also streaked with wear. I would prefer that at least these the auger have a stainless steel cover and the juicer screen be lined with stainless steel. I also want to get a new plunger made of wood (or I will make one with the right-height stopper). I do not put nuts through it and I thin-slice my carrots to speed up the juicing (and minimize the time and friction with plastic parts). Lastly, I have to set it up a bit higher so I can use a glass 2-cup measure to catch the juice. The pulp overflows into a casserole dish so I can easily keep separate what I want to toss into my compost (the wheat grass, garlic, ginger, citrus, etc.) and save for my muffins (carrots, apple, celery, sweet potato, etc.) I have been using a Vitamix instead until I can get the Auger & Juicer Screen replaced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bassbudee What a work horse
I have had my 8006 for 2 years, it sets on my countertop. I juice everyday. This machine is so easy to clean 6 easy to assemble parts and the screen is easy to clean with the included brush. My pulp is very dry. I love it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is slow at juicing pineapple and peaches. The food chute is a bit small too. You have to cut just about everything that you juice. But like I said before it is a work horse and I would not trade it for any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yanny Great product, excellent support
I bought J8006 three weeks ago. I love its juicing power.
It is great for juicing leafy greens and hard roots, such as kale greens, celery, cilantro, parsley, mint, carrots, beets, and burdock root. It yields more juice and very dry pulp without raising temperature, which means more nutrients without being oxidized. Great product!
For softer fruits, such as lemons, limes, cucumbers and pineapples, I can always get all the juice out of them by dropping a celery stalk or any leafy greens to push the slush out of the drum clear.
I juice roughly six 18-fluid-oz. bottles of green juice a day. It is not that much but J8006 handles the tasks well. Until one day, while I was juicing kale greens, celery, cucumber, lime, beets, and fennel, a loud cracking sound thundered out of the juicer and a large split cut across the juicing screen.
Desperate. Requesting for a replacement part under warranty, I sent in my email to firstname.lastname@example.org with an attached photo depicting my broken juicing screen in the evening and I called them at 800-633-3401 about the schedule of delivering in the morning next day. In an email, a courteous sales coordinator (cs1) apologized their late response and promptly addressed my need in the noon time. Three days later, I got my juicing screen. Excellent customer service!
Good job, Omega.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Thai cooker Quality constructed, but will clog-up
We purchased the Omega 8006 Masticating Juicer and use it daily. Although it makes excellent juice, is easy to assemble and clean, and is quality constructed with a powerful motor, the fault we have is you need to stop and clean the feed tube/auger assembly in the middle of your juice making process because it will clog-up with peelings and pulp when adding fruit such as apples and plums to you juice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Juice Diva Best juicer on the planet!
I recieved this for christmas (7 months ago) and I absolutely love it! I make juice for everyone in my house and I'm able to make enough to last 3 days and stay fresh/tasty. I have tried store bought juice since using this machine and I can't event tolerate it. This machine is the way to go. After a week, your taste buds will be used to real juice made with fruits and veggies you may not usually eat. It runs great and extracts the most juice out of any machine I've ever used.
