Great bang for the buck and excellent juice quality
30 January 2015
Summary: First of all I have a Breville J98XL Centrifugal Juicer. I wanted a better juicer so I started researching Masticating Juicers and came upon the Omega 8000 series machines. When looking at the Omega brand models I became confused. What's the difference between them? They all seemed similar. I watched some Youtube videos and read tons of reviews online and this is what I found: First of all, they are all very similar.
Summary: My family and I absolutely LOVE this juicer! It is perfect! I haven't attempted to use it for anything other then juice yet, but so far what I bought it for- it's perfection. *Update 12/29/2014: I used the juicer to grind coffee beans Christmas morning, it was a lot quieter then my traditional coffee grinder. It also produced a much finer and even grind. I have now decided that this will become my full time grinder for coffee as well as my daily juicer!
Summary: Juicing soft fruits and soft vegetables causes a pulp jam in the auger when done juicing. Inserting more fruit / veg will not unstuck the jammed pulp. Making frozen fruit ice cream causes a fruit ice jam at the nozzle and the frozen matter will flow backwards. And later when the ice jam thaws out at the nozzle, it released the built up pressure, and the ice cream explode out so fast it shoots the ice cream out 4 feet making a big mess.
