The manufacturer of Omega juicers has a well-established presence in the juicer market having been launched in 1958.
They are the only company on the market that offers a whole range of juicers which includes :
- centrifugal models, in both the non-ejection and automatic pulp ejection styles,
- masticating-type auger machines, as well as
- dedicated citrus juicers.
Omega masticating juicer models
Masticating Omega Juicing Machines (Omega8003/8005/8006 and the Omega VRT 330 vertical model.)
If you are shopping for masticating juicers you are probably one of those people that take their juicing quite seriously.
You are likely to know or are learning about the healing power of natural fruits, vegetables, herbs and seeds for conditions like asthma, gout, chronic fatigue, anemia or cancer etc.
If you plan to juice only fruit then a masticating style machine is not the best choice for you and centrifugal juicer reviews will probably be where you should start.
Single gear masticating juicers are good at juicing harder vegetables like beets and carrots.
Some of the benefits of masticating juicers –
- Mastication juicers also produce much less noise than centrifugal juicers.
- They cause less oxidization of the juice which means you end up with a greater level of nutrition ending up in your glass.
- A further benefit of the protection from heat and oxidization is it increases the shelf life of the juice meaning that you can store your juice for a while by refrigerating it.
Omega 8003 and 8005 Juicer Models
These two Omega juicer models are the masticating single gear juicers with 10 years warranty.
Price of Models 8003/8005 range between $230 and $260.
Omega 8006 Juicer & Nutrition Center
These models mostly have the same features as the 8003 and 8005 models but it has a stronger auger, as well as a longer warranty (15 years).
This is an upright single-auger Omega juicer that operates at a very low speed. It has some innovative features like the self-feeding mechanism and the auto cleaning.
Its low speed of 80 rpms results in minimal heat build up and oxidation, which results enzyme preservation and longer lasting juices.
Upright masticating juicers are a new design juicer with all of the benefits of a standard single gear masticating juicer but the upright design is intended to provide some space saving.
Omega centrifugal juicer models
Centrifugal Juicers are the most popular juicers and generally they are also more affordable than masticating juicers.
Omega centrifugal juicers can juice softer veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes but also the harder vegetables like beets and carrots.
One of the biggest benefits of centrifugal juicers are that they work very quickly.
Self-ejecting juicers are especially good for non-stop, fast juicing.
Some models like the Omega 4000 allows you to buy a citrus attachment which makes it possible to juice citrus fruits without having to peel them.
A centrifugal juicer is fairly easy to put together and take apart after you are done juicing.
One of the disadvantages of centrifugal juicers is that they are not effective at juicing green leafy vegetables like spinach.
Another disadvantage of a centrifugal juicer is that the high
speed at which they function causes the juice to get in contact with
lots of air. This accelerates oxidation of enzymes and vitamins and can
impact the nutritional value of the juice.
Centrifugal Style Omega Juicers (models 500, 1000, 9000B and 9000W)
In this a centrifuge holds the pulp inside the basket to spin the pulp and extract the juice.

Omega Centrifugal Juicers with Automatic Pulp Ejection (Models: Omega 4000 and the O2)

That will determine whether you need a centrifugal or masticating juicer.
