The Omega 8008 is the latest member of the 8000 series family and it has been released as a direct upgrade to the highly popular 8006. As expected, it maintains all the perks of its predecessor and improves on it where possible. As a result the 8008 now benefits from a pressure adjusting nozzle and an inbuilt scoop handle while still providing the same excellent performance, build quality and versatility we’ve grown used to. For those novice users, this is a slow cold pressed masticating juicer that has been designed to slowly process the produce and extract maximum yield. The slow rotation of the parts prevents heat created within the juice, thereby avoiding oxidation which further preserves the freshness of the juice.
Slow 80 RPM juicing speeds
Large feed tray
Pressure adjustment nozzle
Included homogenising blank and 5 homogenising nozzles
Quiet operation levels
Easy to clean
A big advantage for the 8008 comes in the form of well built juicing parts. Many of the parts have been redesigned slightly over the 8006 and are produced from higher quality plastics such as Tritan and GE Ultem, making them even more durable under the pressure of juicing.
As with a majority of horizontal style juicers, the 8008 is capable of more than just juicing thanks to the inclusion of a homogenising blank and 5 different nozzles. The blank is used in place of the usual juicing screen and allows the 8007 to act as a food mixer, mincer and grinder. When combined with the variety of nozzles available this allows for the production of many foods including sorbets, nut butters, pasta, ground coffee and even minced meat.
As would be expected, the 8008 produces a great juice yield thanks to its well developed juicing mechanism and parts. However, it also benefits from 5 variable pressure levels that can be set through a nozzle on the end cap. These levels allow produce to be put under more pressure as it is juiced, ensuring that optimal yields are extracted from different ingredient types.
A low pressure is ideal for use with softer ingredients and a high pressure is useful to get the most out of really tough ingredients such as leafy greens like kale, spinach etc.
Please be aware, that the 8008 is sold in Europe under a different model name. The 8228 European model is identical to the 8008, but it is built to be compatible with a 220 volt power supply. Other than this, no changes have been made to the motor or parts.

I bought this to replace a smaller upright slow juicer. I read reviews on this site and watched the video also. A great idea. I had seen a famous doctor juicing celery also on his website. I wanted a juicer that did a wee bit more than his .....also Omega. This juicer is fantastic , juices very well, the pulp that comes out is virtually bone dry as it has extracted all the juice from it. Easy to assemble, even easier to clean. My old juicer used to sit around all day waiting to be cleaned as it was such a chore. I clean this one right after use as it is so easy to clean .I look forward to using it for many years to come and trying out all the attachments.

omega 8008 masticating juicer
An excellent and well designed juicer - does everything I want. Easy to clean. Would have 5 stars from me except the little sieve is badly designed and is difficult to use. It does not fit the juice container as I think it is supposed to and although this is a small point, for the price I feel every item should be working properly and efficiently.

I'm juicing everything now!
Amazing - my celery morning juice is so quick to make now. Clean up is extremely fast. The adjustable nozzle is great for squeezing different textures. Couldn't be happier!

Omega juicer 8008
I love this juicer! It's just amazing and makes juice that tastes like fresh sunshine on a tropical island :) The pulp is dry, with the slow rotation I can really taste the difference in juice quality compared with my cheaper masticating juicer. Only issue I had is that while it's quiet, it vibrates a lot and this affected me as I've a very sensitive nervous system (hence why drinking celery juice and such!). But got some anti vibration mat, I put a thick wool jumper over the juicer engine part and then it's fine....still gets 5 stars as like I said, it's amazing :)

Great juicer and food processor
Been juicing all my vegetables for a week now and I feel great definitely a good buy. Great for making other foods as well such as almond milk and minced meat. Great fun.
