Produce the Omega 8004 Can Juice
Like the Omega 8006 the Omega 8004 juicer can juice a wide variety of fruits and vegetables including green leafy vegetables and wheat grass. While the Omega 8004 works best when juicing harder produce it can juice softer fruits and vegetables as long as this type of produce is alternated with harder produce otherwise the pulp of this softer produce will block the screen not allowing the juice to pass through.
One of the real benefits of the Omega 8004 juicer is it’s ability to juice leafy green vegetables and wheat grass, which is something centrifuge juicers can’t do. In addition, Omega refers to the 8004 and other similar masticating juicers as nutrition centers for good reason. Not only do these juicers create healthier juice than you can buy from your local grocers, it can also be used to grind, chop, extrude pasta, and make frozen desserts.
Technology of the Omega 8004 Juicer
The Omega 8004 juicer uses masticating technology, which is superior to centrifuge juicers because it operates at a much slower speed, which like the Omega 8006 juicer provides less oxidation resulting in saving more of the nutritional benefits. Masticating juicers are considered to be more advanced than Centrifuge juicers and the Omega masticating juicers often cost about the same as upper end Centrifuge juicers.
If you are wondering why the Omega 8004 sells for less than the Omega 8006 even though they are basically the same juicer the reason lies not in how these two juicers look but, rather in how they look. The Omega 8004 has a white exterior that gives this juicer a somewhat dated and cheaper look than the chrome and black coloring of the Omega 8006 juicer. However, if you are looking for a high functioning masticating juicer, and care more about getting a good price, than a good looking appliance than the Omega 8004 juicer will be the best juicer to meet your needs and your budget.
