Excellent juicer!... the only con: rubbing on the auger.
20 July 2014
Summary: I bought it a few days ago but I've understand it step by step. This is not like others juicers that you just turn it on and ready!... You should know how to use it properly. When I opened the box was awesome because its really beautiful, gorgeous! After reading the guide, was so simple to assemble it. The only thing I still don't know how to use it efficiently is the adjustable juicing nozzle.
Summary: I had researched many varieties of juicers (masticating and centrifugal) and decided on the masticating one from Omega - NC800HDR. I have since tried the Breville JE95XL (centrifugal) a friend let me have. I found the omega extracted more juice, was quieter and much easier to clean up than the Breville. I must say the Breville handles soft fruit better than the Omega and you can put larger fruits and veggies in without having to cut them up.
Summary: Awesome machine. I have the newest top of the line Breville juicer which did a great job for the most part but didn't do greens or micro-greens very well which was the main reason we purchased the Omega. I also had the twin gear Green Star but that was huge, heavy and difficult to clean. My husband and I had done the research for quite some time and felt that this was the best for the money that we wanted to spend. It has not let us down.
Summary: Had this for over a month now and I can say it does everything as advertised. We opted to go for this model vs. the fake metal chrome version, as that is really the only difference. Change your life and eat better with this Nutrition Center form Omega. After ready and researching hundreds of reviews and health blogs, this is the one you want to get.
Summary: I love it ( what else can I say ) I also have the older model 8404 and can say for a certainty that this new model beats the older model by 100% not that the 8004 is not worth it but this new model is a dream, the feeder opening is larger, the juice filter is stronger, and the pulp extractor gives you a more control and drier pulp
Summary: I spent hours upon hours trying to research the best slow juicer out there. After all, to most, this is not a small purchase. What I found was that all juicers are great. At least that's what everybody claims. I'm new to juicing. Trying to get healthier and shed a few pounds. So simplicity was important to me. I started off with the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer B6000S. At first I liked it, but then I returned it, broken. It lasted two days (see my review for the Kuvings).
Summary: I returned the juicer, it was a bit to slow for my life style. It worked well and was a beautiful machine. You would have never know that it wasn't a brand new juicer. The company, was great to work with, and I would have no hesitation purchasing something from them in the future.
Summary: This was a review I put up for the Breville Juice Fountain Elite, but it pertains to the Omega as well... After a year in a half it no longer works... $300 dollars is a lot of money to spend for a year and a half of juicing. :-( I am updating this to tell another side of this story. We called Breville and because the unit was not that far out of warranty they are sending us a refurbished unit with a three month warranty at no cost.
Best bang for your buck, easy clean, large chute, wheatgrass, citrus, hard veggies.

Summary: This juicer is great! A huge step up from the 8006! With a wider chute and a regulator on the front that squeezes more juice out of the pulp. It has a slightly larger foot print that the 8006 but all of the pros make it worth the extra money. The neck on mine is actually breaking. I contacted Omega and they are extremely slow! I sent an email that it was braking and they asked me to send the part to them or a picture.
