Wow! Excellent item at the best price I've ever seen... I paid 50 dollars more last year on a deal of the day (or was it a lightning box deal?).

Anyway, if you're interested in a juicer, this is one of the better ones on the market. Rock solid and very efficient.

This does seem like an unexpectedly good price for this juicer. I wonder if juicer sales have fallen with all of the attention given in the last few years to blender-style devices that retain the pulp (like the Vitamix).

I bought this juicer after an experience with a breville juicer. This juicer is very quiet, it has less wasted veggies and is more easy to clean than the Breville. I was told that this juicer would take longer to juice. It takes long to cut the veggies but less time to clean. so over all I don't think it takes longer. There is a lot less waste with this machine.

This 8005 vs the 8006 . . .

The latest juicer model 8006 from Omega with an exciting new look, additional features, and improved technology! The Omega 8006 Juicer adds FIVE more years of warranty (15 years versus 10 years on the Omega Model 8005 Juicer), an improved auger with super-hard GE Ultem material -- 8 times harder than the Omega 8005 Juicer auger -- a built in handle, and fewer parts to clean.

Great price for a great Juicer, Not only does it juice but throw in frozen fruit and make sorbets. Grind your coffee, and mix your herbs. I use it for making juice for my family and everything else I can think of. Makes awesome butters too: peanut, cashew, almond.

I realize that post was written in a smart aleck-y way, but I think it was meant to be funny.

However, it struck a chord with me and maybe you all can help me out. I realize juicing is sort of "in" right now, but doesn't doing that remove the fiber from the "healthy" foods...which is a big part of WHY they are considered healthy in the first place? I suppose cooking does that too to an extent. So, is the thinking that at LEAST you are getting SOME nutrients/benefits by drinking the stuff since many of us aren't eating it anyway?

I not trying to knock the product (and the price seems GREAT today), i just wanted some education from someone who understands it better. :)

I suppose it's better than nothing NJ, but you're right, fiber is a huge benefit to your health. It's not just a benefit that you appreciate 20 years later for your heart (lowers cholesterol) or colon (less risk of colon cancer), but immediately in terms of better poop and less risk of hemorrhoids. It's better to drink nicely processed fruit juice than a soda, but then the next level up would be to eat a whole piece of fruit/veggie than just drink it's juice.

Juicing allows you to take in high amounts of vitamins without the bulk to digest. This process has changed people's lives in ways I can't begin to describe. Juicers like this one don't produce high amounts of heat, ensuring the vital enzymes the body needs are not destroyed (cooking vegetables does the same: kills enzymes).

Juicing allows you to consume a large quantity of the nutrients founds in fruits/vegetables. I can easily drink the juice of 30 carrots, it would take me a long time to eat that many. Thus being you concentrate the nutrients.

Did the juicing thing - only replacing breakfast and lunch - ate grilled chicken/fish type 500-750 cal dinners. Lost 80 lbs in 7 weeks. Switched to "blending", leaving the fiber/pulp in, and went stagnant. For whatever reason, the juicing thing really does work.

This will not be popular with people who believe that masticating is a sin.

Have owned the Breville BJE510XL Breville BJE510XL Juice Fountain Multi-Speed 900-Watt Juicer for over four years and it is still going strong; very happy with that purchase. This seems like a very good deal though. If I didn't still own my trusty Breville, I'd go for it.

This is a great investment in health. I have a Vitamix, too, for smoothies but sometimes I just want the clean goodness of juice. If I could only have one, I'd take the Vitamix, but this gets used several times a week. A glass of juice with greens and maybe an apple or orange is a good "dessert" for me later in the evening. It cuts sugar cravings and gives my body fuel to heal during the night.

Yes, it does remove the fibrous parts. I've found recipes for muffins you can make with the "leftovers." I'd be more inclined to use the pulp/fiber for compost.

Still, you can get a lot of nutrients, but I don't think it's worth it unless you're going to juice stuff like broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and leafy greens. Yummy :/

I'm with you Nj.
I tossed my juicer, which wasted so much of the fruit & fiber, & now use my VitaMix to concoct healthful "smoothies."

I realize that a VM is pretty pricey but I'll bet some less expensive blenders come pretty close to the VM's effectiveness.
