Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Cold Press Masticating Juicer Review

You don’t always have to spend thousands of dollars to upgrade a commercial kitchen. With Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Cold Press Masticating Juicer, you can enhance the juicing efficiency of your juice stand or restaurant kitchen by multiple times without spending a lot. With commercial grade motor and Ultem parts, this model is built for heavy-duty, regular use and maintains the highest quality no matter what you juice.

Special Features that Omega J8004 Cold Press Juicer Offers

Performance:

Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Cold Press Masticating JuicerSince it is a cold press juicer which juices by pressing and squeezing the ingredients rather than cutting them and is designed to deliver maximum yield and quality, don’t expect a very high juicing speed. The speed of operation is the feature that you will need to make compromises in if you wish for a high yield. Same is the case with any other cold press juicer that you choose to buy.

Versatility:

Besides being ideal for juicing fruits and vegetables, this omega juicer performs exceptionally well when juicing leafy greens. Assisted with its dual stage juicing process and heavy-duty Ultem auger, the model extracts almost all the liquid out of even the driest ingredients such as wheatgrass and spinach.

Besides being a capable juicer, the model can be used for preparing nut butters, sorbets, baby food and many smoothies. This makes it a versatile kitchen tool rather than simply a commercial cold press juicer.

Construction:

Since the juicer is designed for commercial use, it is constructed with heavy duty, durable parts. Commercial-grade, 2HP motor is installed within the device which powers the dual-stage juicing process of the cold press juicer to juice at a slow speed of 80 RPM. The slow speed ensures maximum efficiency of the output for all kinds of fruits and vegetables.

The auger of the cold press juicer is the unit which withstands the most pressure and in this case it is built from the highest quality Ultem plastic. Even when you use the hardest ingredients and juice continuously for a long time, the operation of the juicer will be smooth and efficient.

Juice Quality:

Omega J8004 delivers one of the best juice qualities in the market. Almost no froth is present in the drink that is produced through the juicer and since the juicing process is slow, minimum heat is produced and the oxidation rate is very low. Owing to the low oxidation rate, the juice stays fresh even when left for 2 days in the fridge.

Cleanup:

The cleanup with this model is as simple as it can get with a cold press juicer. The parts are easy to take apart and put together and since there are minimum parts, the cleanup won’t take long. The auger and the strainer can be a bit difficult to clean but if you clean up as soon as you’re done juicing without leaving it to dry and use the cleaning tool that’s included, the task shouldn’t be too hard.
