It has a dual-stage juicing system to maintain a high degree of efficiency and effectiveness to deliver you the best and freshest juice possible.
A low rotation speed of 80 RPM means that you can make juice that doesn’t foam, clog, or experience heat build-up and oxidation. The juicer also has a high juice yield, creates very dry pulp, and has an automatic pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing.
The unit is housed within a heavy-duty commercial construction and has been designed for long life with a 15 year warranty and quiet operation.

The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer has received a lot of encouraging feedback from its customers but there is always room for other views…
The Negative Reviews
The customer feedback for the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer has largely been very positive. However, a number of quite serious criticisms have also been leveled at the product.
We will now discuss some of the complaints that the customers have made so that our readers can be as informed as possible about this juicer before purchasing it.
The most concerning complaints have been made by a number of reviewers in regard to the product’s auger. It is clear that these reviewers have received defective units.
The problem that these customers have experienced involves the auger grinding against the metal mesh, producing a dust of scrapings which is mostly carried away into the pulp.
While it is fortunate that the manufacturer offers a long warranty period for the product and good customer support, the number of instances of customers receiving faulty units is quite surprising. Perhaps it is due to using the unit improperly because Omega clearly say that the juicer should not be run without produce in it and some purchasers clearly have done!
Other negative reviews have been made in relation to the product’s feed chute. Some of the customers have argued that it is too small. Because of its smaller size than many other juicers, more preparation time is required before produce can be juiced.
The Positive Reviews
The customers of the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer have left a lot of positive feedback for the item despite some of the negative feedback that we have just discussed.
Many reviewers appreciate the low RPM of this juicer. Because of its low speed, the product makes juice that has less oxidation than that of other juicers, and less foam. The customers have found that this results in the juice staying fresh for longer and that vitamins are extracted more effectively.
Positive comments have also been made for the ease of use of the product. The reviewers have found the juicer to be very easy to put together. Additionally, they have found that cleaning the juicer is almost effortless because it does not possess any awkward nooks or crannies where produce could get stuck.
Efficiency is another characteristic of the item that has been praised. It might not function as quickly as juicers with a higher RPM, but still does the job in about 2 minutes.
It is also effective in that it is capable of leaving a dryer pulp than centrifugal juicers.
Other popular features of the product include its quality of materials, its long warranty, and that it functions quietly.
Would we recommend the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer to our readers?
It depends, and here is why:
Based on our analysis of the customer feedback, we think this juicer packs a lot of value. We would certainly encourage any of our readers looking for an efficient and effective quiet juicer that makes juice with a low oxidization to consider investing in this product.
However, it is important to keep in mind that some customers have had to replace their unit after receiving a faulty product.
The main issue seems to be that the auger scrapes against the screen producing scrapings and dust of the plastic used. This does not happen often so it seems like it is a quality control weakness in the production process.
Overall, users have rated this product very highly indeed
