Omega J8003 Nutrition Center Single-Gear Low Speed Masticating Juicer, White
The Omega J8003 Nutrition Center is a masticating style juicer. Sometimes referred to as a low speed juicer, the Nutrition Center processes at 80rpm, whereas most other juicers process at a speed of 1,650 to 15,000rpm. The low speed protects and maintains healthy enzymes, prevents oxidation and allows juice to be stored up to 72 hours without degradation. The dual stage juice processing system extracts the maximum amount of juice from fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, even wheatgrass! You can also use the nutrition center to turn nuts into nut butters (an all-natural peanut butter), make baby food from natural, fresh ingredients, whip up soy milk, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices, and mince herbs and garlic. Make delicious and nutritious drinks and snacks that everyone will love. Measuring 6.5in wide, 14.5in deep and 15.5in tall.
Includes: Juicing Screen Cone with the stainless steel mesh. It is used for all juicing functions and only juicing functions. Blank Cone Used for all functions except juicing. Constructed solid polycarbonate with a stainless steel rim on the inside. It is used for all functions except juicing. Oval Nozzle is used for mincing and chopping vegetables, making nut butters, homogenizing frozen fruit, milk or yogurt, extruding breadsticks Round Nozzle is used for mincing and chopping vegetables, making nut butters, homogenizing frozen fruit, milk or yogurt, extruding breadsticks Four Remaining Nozzles are used for extrusion of various sized pastas. Sieve fits on both of the bowls, may be used after processing items that seem to have too much pulp in the juice or foam on the top of the juice. It is best to use the sieve at the end of the juicing process by pouring all of the prepared juice through the sieve.

Additionally, although this 8003 model is an older model, it has the exact same motor and parts as the more expensive updated models, except for the auger. The newer models have a black auger that is supposed to be harder than the white auger in the 8003. But considering the white auger in this 8003 model has a 10 year warranty, I'm pretty sure it's tough as nails (certainly feels tough as nails!). And even in the unlikely event that it were to crack someday, I would get a free replacement auger from Omega for 10 years! Couple that awesome warranty with the much lower price point for the 8003 ..... and I was sold!
This juicer has been working beautifully for me! No problems at all. The auger really crushes everything I put into it! I juice a lot of leafy greens (awesome juice yield!), carrots, apples, celery, pears, cucumbers and citrus. Perfect operation. Very happy with this purchase! 5 stars! *****
I've owned this juicer for nearly 3 yrs and used it almost daily since i first bought it. All i can say is that I'm surprised that i don't have a single shred of buyers remorse with this purchase and i usually do with almost everything that I buy. It works the same today as the first day which i find to be rare with appliances these days. Since 3 years ago, i've continued my research in juicers and i periodically check if there is a better one out there. There are tons of juicer comparison videos online and I encourage all of you to watch them before making your purchase decision. What i've learned in the past 3 years is that there are 4 main types of juicers: centrifugal, single auger, twin gear, and hydraulic press. If your top priority is maximum juice quality and yield for the broadest scope of fruits and vegetables then you can ignore centrifugal type juicers...in my opinion. When comparing single auger, twin gear and hydraulic press type juicers i find that the difference in juice quality and yield is small. I've thought long and hard about upgrading to a twin gear and even a hydraulic press type juicer over the past 3 yrs but i just can't justify spending the extra $500-$2500 (Greenstar to Norwalk) for negligible increase in quality and yield. If money and preparation time was of no concern of mine i might feel differently. In summary, if your top priority is quality and yield then you get the biggest bang for your buck with a low rpm single auger type juicer like the omega 8003-8006.
1. One thing the the omega 8003 doesn't do well is making nut milks like almond milk or soy milk. I don't ever make those so it's not an issue with me but if it is perhaps a vertical single auger juicer like the omega vrt, kurvings silent juicer or Hurom vertical juicer is right for you. (I would be cautious with the kurvings and Hurom brands because they haven't been around as long so they might not be around to honor the warranty.)
2. A common complaint is that the feed tube is small which requires the user to slice up the produce more than they would have to if using another style juicer. I agree that the in an ideal world the feed tube would be larger but my concern there would be that a larger feed tube would put larger chunks of produce through the machine possibly requiring a more powerful and more expensive motor. The small diameter feed tube doesn't necessarily require more prep time...it depends on what you are juicing. When juicing carrots, i find that baby carrots require no prep and provide the same yield as regular carrots. Kale, chard, celery, collard greens, etc...will fit right in the machine without any cutting. So I find that the small inlet diameter isn't a big deal to me but just know that some people complain about it.
If you're interested in buying this juicer, just know that omega has updated this design and implemented the improvements in the 8004 (white) and 8006 (chrome) models. They've updated the material of the auger to GE Ultem which is a plastic that is 8 times harder than the 8003's melamine auger. They've also improved the juicer cone design to improve it's strength and added 5 more yrs to the products warranty (15 yr total!). Less significant design changes are the design of the collection cups and shell of the motor. These updates are significant enough that if i were to purchase a juicer now i would get the 8004 with the extended warranty, updated juicer cone design and harder auger.
My goal in this review is to help the reader avoid making the same trial and error mistakes that i did with buying and ultimately returning different juicers until i finally bought this one. let my review here be a testament to how satisfied I am with this juicer. People are more likely to write a review of a product that they've had nothing but trouble with. I takes an extremely satisfied customer to take the time to write an honest review. So if I sound like I'm over selling this juicer it's only because i'm extremely proud of this purchase.
I wish you all the best in your juicing endeavors and if you have any questions please post a comment as I love sharing my knowledge and passion for healthy living.
(ORIGINAL REVIEW SEPT 2009)
I wanted to get into juicing so I started researching juicers on Amazon. I originally bought the Breville BJE200XL. This juicer is very popular on this site and received good reviews. I beg to differ. It was cumbersome, difficult to clean, and the juice didn't taste very good. I immediately returned this juicer and did more research. In my opinion, if you're serious about juicing I would highly recommend the Omega 8003. It's quiet, easy to clean, and produces great tasting, high quality juice. It's worth every penny and i'll never make the mistake of buying a centrifugal juicer again.
