The Omega J8005 Masticating Juicer is not just a masticating juicer. It is also a nutrition center that can be used to make various other types of nutritious foods. Of all of the juicers that I read about, I found this one to be the best choice for my family. The three top reasons for my choice are:
- Low speed
- Various functions
- Easy clean-up
Omega J8005 Masticating Juicer Features And Specifications
The Omega J8005 Masticating Juicer has a low speed of just 80 rpm as compared to the 1,650 to 15,000 rpm of some of the centrifugal juicers. Since it is a masticating juicer, the Omega J8005 Masticating Juicer squeezes the foods to produce the juice instead of grinding them which takes a lot more force.
This lower speed does not create a lot of heat that can destroy the enzymes in the juice and delete some of its nutritional value, so the juice that I make is more nutritional for my whole family. By processing the foods at a lower speed there is also less froth in the juice. This may not seem important to some people, but I believe that having less froth increases the flavor of the juice and my family members agree.
Juicing, in itself, is a great way to increase your health, but this machine has so many other functions that make it an ideal addition to the kitchen of any household that wants to eat healthier. We use it to make fresh soy milk almost as often as we use it to make juice. I have also used this machine to produce wonderful homemade pasta. The kids love watching the long strands of spaghetti as they come out of the extruder attachment.
The homemade pasta has a great texture and, in my opinion, it tastes better than store-bought pasta. Although coffee isn’t really a healthy drink, it is one that I enjoy. I found that I can use my Omega J8005 to grind the coffee beans at home and the brew it makes in delightful.
Having such a versatile juicing nutrition center would mean nothing to me if I had to spend a lot of time cleaning it every time that I used it. Trust me, it would be stowed away in a cupboard somewhere and forgotten in our busy household. Therefore, quick and easy clean-up was something that was important in me search for a juicer.
My Omega J8005 Masticating Juicer is super easy to clean up. Disassembling and cleaning can be done in a matter of minutes. Since it is so easy to clean, my family uses it many times a day. In fact, sometimes the parts don’t even get a chance to air dry before we decide to make something else. We just dry them off, reassemble it and enjoy the fun of making something delicious and nutritious.
If you want to make nutritious juices and other nutritious dishes without a lengthy clean-up process to dread afterward, then this is the perfect small kitchen appliance to add to your kitchen. Once you try it, you won’t want to stop.
