The juicers are the same except the 8004 is white and less expensive, and the 8006 is chrome colored (both are plastic) and a bit more pricey. I opted for the white, and have no regrets. Here is a YouTube video from discountjuicers.com comparing the two, but I bought mine from Amazon. Fastest shipping ever! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGMXylpfGSY
I replaced by centrifugal juicer with this Omega and I am so glad I did. The Omega is extremely quiet, and wrings every last bit of juice of of your fruits and vegetables. It works very well, and I use it all the time. You can easily clean it by putting the parts in the dishwasher too. I recommend the Omega to everyone.
does this juice wheatgrass Aug 30, 2014
It can juice wheatgrass and other leafy greens. I frequently juice kale and spinach. I've also done collard & mustard greens. It is one of the few juicers that can handle a range of items from very hard (carrots, beets) to soft like wheatgrass.
I bought from Bed Bath & Beyond. Original price was around 250 but I had 20% off coupon. So I got it for around $200
Does the white outer case material stain over time from juicing veggies like carrots, beets, etc.? Jul 12, 2014
Caroline, The main body of the unit will not stain as it rarely comes in contact with the veggies. If a few drops splash on it, they wipe off easily. The top hopper and the twist on front white cap have the most minor amount of staining on small places on the inside. This may be because I just rinse/ hand wash them off when I am done instead of putting them in the dishwasher. The semi clear plastic juice receptacle ( the thing that catches the juice when it comes out of the machine) has discolored a bit. I juice carrots, dark greens and beets at times. All this said, we keep our juicer on the counter because we use it almost every day. It aesthetically looks fine, like any other kitchen appliance. I had the old school spinning blade juicer prior to this one and did some research prior to buying this one. I am pleased so far with the value and the quality of the juice.
How can I tell if the auger is melamine or Ultem? The box says ultem but the manual clearly says melamine. Jan 29, 2014
Ok, here are the FACTS. The previous models such as the 8003 were melamine; this model - the 8004/8006 are the Ultem.
