Today, we are going to be comparing the Omega J8008C vs J8006HDS. The Omega J8008C and the Omega J8006HDS are both masticating juice extractors. They are unlike the conventional juice extractors that we all know. These devices are perfect for making clear juice. Often, these devices are being compared with blenders and other fruit juicers. But the truth is that they are different from the rest, although their functions could be quite similar.
The Omega J8008C and the Omega J8006HDS are slow rotating speed masticating juicers. So, the juice made with them last a bit longer than the ones made using a high-speed rotating juicer. High-speed rotate juicers are very fast, and as such, they produce heat as they juice. Indirectly, it means that what you are trying to juice would come out warm. The heat would promote spoilage in the juice. Unlike other juicers, the Omega J8008C and the Omega J8006HDS requires so little current to function. They need about 110 – 120 volts of AC to work. There are several usabilities and functions of the Omega J8008C, and the Omega J8006HDS but before we dive into it, let us do a table of comparison, comparing some of the features of both juicers.
From the table of the comparison above, it is more evident that despite both the Omega J8008C and the Omega J8006HDS are very similar, there still exists a substantial difference between them. So, we aim to explain how each of the features mentions in the table of comparison affects the juicers. Again, in this post, you would get to learn the pros and cons of these two juicers as well. And in the end, you would know which among the two juicers is more superior. So, without further ado, let us jump right into the comparison.
In this article, we will compare:
- Number of speeds
- Auto-pulp Ejection
Omega J8008C vs J8006HDS: Power
The power can otherwise be seen as the amount of torque the juicer has to blend through the fibers of the fruits and vegetables. For a juicer like an Omega J8008C and the J8006HDS, the power needs to be sufficient to get you through your day to day juicing. If the power of the juicer is not enough, the first thing is that you would not get a smooth blend of what you want to juice. Then again, there is the problem of the juicer stopping midway when you are blending something hard., which is because the power is not enough to blend what you are trying to juice.
The Omega J8008C comes with a powerful motor of up to 200 watts. The motor is powerful enough to get you through most of your day to day juicing activities. Because of the amount of power the Omega J8008C possesses, you can expect it to be able to squeeze out the juice from items such as leafy vegetables and fine wheatgrass. You can also use the juicer for getting milk out of soy nuts, getting the butter out of nuts, preparing baby food, and so on.
The Omega J8006HDS, on the other hand, comes with a motor that has a power that is peaked at 150 watts. The power of the Omega J8006HDS is powerful enough to blend coffee beans, nuts (such as pecan milk, almond milk, peanut butter and so on), minced herbs and garlic, and so on.
Winner: [The Omega J8008C]
Omega J8008C vs J8006HDS: Speed
The speed at which masticating juicers like the Omega J8008C and the Omega J8006HDS rotates matters a lot. One thing you should note about these masticating juicers is that they rotate slowly but with enough power. It is essential because when processing food, especially fruits and vegetables, heat quickly destroys the nutrients. Moreover, heat also contributes to the growth of microorganisms, thereby causing it to spoil on time. The faster you blend your fruits and vegetables, the warmer it would be at the end of the day, which causes spoilage.
The Omega J8008C is a slow rotating masticating juicer and has a speed of about 80 RPM. The rate of speed of the Omega J8008C is perfect for processing fruits and vegetables. It has also been reported that fruits and vegetables processed at this speed lasted up to 72 hours in the refrigerator. The Omega J8008C can also be used for processing baby’s food, because of its low-speed rate.
The Omega J8006HDS, on the other hand, is also a slow rotating masticating juicer, and it has a speed limit of about 80 RPM. Because of how slow the masticator is, food processed with it can last in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Omega J8008C vs J8006HDS: Number of Speeds
The number of speed regulations a masticating juicer like the Omega J8008C and the Omega J8006HDS has will help to regulate the fineness of the end product. The way the blenders work with varying speeds, that is precisely how the masticating juicers work as well.
The Omega J8008C has just one speed. Although the speed rate of the Omega J8008C is effective at what it does, it is a disadvantage as you can’t vary how coarse or fine you want the end product to be, well except you blend it over and over again.
The Omega J8006HDS comes with just one-speed limit. So, ones you tap on the ON switch, the machine goes ahead with juicing, and its speed can’t be varied.
Omega J8008C vs J8006HDS: Auto-pulp Ejection
The auto-pulp ejection is a feature that makes a juicer unique in terms of usability. Rather than going through the hassle of extracting the juice from your favorite fruits and vegetables, and then you would have to remove the pulp from the juicer yourself, the auto-pulp feature overcomes that for you. All you need to do when your juicer has an auto-pulp feature is to put your favorite fruits and veggies into the juicer.
The Omega J8008C has the auto-pulp feature. So, you don’t have to worry about manually removing the pulp from your juicer; the auto-pulp feature would do that for you. And the best part is that the pulp would come out as dry as it can be because the Omega J8008C would completely squeeze out the juice from the fruit or veggies.
The Omega J8006HDS, on the other hand, also has the auto-pulp feature. The Omega J8006HDS separates the juice from the pulp and automatically ejects the pulp. The Omega J8006HDS does a great job by squeezing out the juice entirely from the pulp, so you get a dry pulp coming out of the machine at the end of the day.
Omega J8008C vs J8006HDS: Pitcher
The pitcher is more-or-less where you put in what you want to juice. So, does the Omega J8008C, and the Omega J8006HDS come with a pitcher? Or do you dice the fruits and vegetables you want to juice and put them through a small hole? Well, let’s find out if they have a pitcher or not.
The Omega J8008C comes with a pitcher. It comes with just one pitcher that has the shape of a tray. What you want to juice would have to be diced into smaller bits, and then put on the tray. The tray then leads into the auger chamber where the real juicing and separation takes place.
The Omega J8006HDS also has a tray like a pitcher. There is a small hole at the edge of the tray. So, you would have to dice your fruits and veggies into the smaller bit to fit into the hole.
