awesome! the husband is stoked that he finally gets his 8006, he's planning on going on a juice fast...we'll see how it goes!
That was one of the motivations for my fiance and I getting ours, and we haven't stopped using it since. We now go juice-only at least a few days each month in addition to making juice for breakfast/lunch a few times a week. Totally worth it. Takes a while to make the juice (requires lots of chopping), but cleanup is practically instant and the juice is incredible. She is also crazy about the coconut cream and sorbets it can make.

8006 is slow.. you will need to be patient and the opening is smaller so you will need to cut things smaller, it also does not work well with things like oranges.. I am leaning towards the VRT but each has it's pro's and con's

There are dozens of comparisons if you google that exact phrase. But the answer is neither. They both have their strengths and weaknesses, as slight as the differences may be. For me, I went with the VRT. Many people in the thread have the 8006.

You'll likely be happy with either one, if a masticating juicer is what you're after.

YEah..it looks like they each have pros' and cons. Too bad I didn't do the research before the deal. The video I'm watching now says the one that's better is the one that fits your juicing style or works better for the things you want to juice. That's kinda hard to say considering I've never juiced and have no idea my style or what to juice.

I was about to purchase the vrt, then I thought about the sorbet capabilities the 8006 has. So I went with the 8006. The sorbet will go well with my diet plus the 8006 will force me to use more greens and less fruits. And 15 year warranty sound pretty sweet.

Seems that this type of discount is difficult to find on the Omega VRT350R so went for that one instead of the 8006.

Thanks OP!

PS: 5% off with disco card.

Truthfully, the differences in the 8006 and VRT aren't that pronounced. Just watch this [youtube.com] video and he explains it all pretty well. The guy has a lot of videos you can watch if you'd like that cover pretty much everything. And yes, he's super in to juicing. But it's his job.

The main difference in juicers in general is masticating style juicers like these and centrifugal juicers(most notably Breville brand) that spin super fast and "shred" the fruit. My sister has one of those, and both of us like it. But now we'll have access to both styles. Hopefully the video(s) answer your questions.

Just used my Omega 8006 to crush up fresh coconut. The flakes are in the dehydrator as we speak. I love this juicer!

Hmm...Think I'm leaning towards the 8006. Cheaper, sorbet function, 15 year warranty, faster clean up. I have a garden so I can plant more leafy greens which 8006 is better at....Ok.. 8006. Price match at BB and B. Any tips on how to get vegetables for less money? They are not cheap when You're talking about the amounts you need to juice eh?

Thanks for the recipe. I hadn't thought about using green apples to help hide it. Ginger, lemon, pineapple, and all the usual stuff can't seem to mask it, but maybe some Granny Smith action would help. Normally I just plug and chug the beet juice down =p
I hope you are peeling the beet. If not, this helps a lot...as the skin is very "dirt tasting." I eat beets in my salads almost everyday like this.

Last time macys said 33 days shipping time on the 8006 and it actually shipped much faster, closer to a week.

I chatted with an Amazon rep and asked about a price match for the 8004 and 8006, but no go.

I did use the "found a lower price" on both items to submit Macy's pricing. I'd like the 8006, but Macy's site says it will ship in 33 days Frown

If you were to only buy one (as do most of us), get the 8006. The 8006 IMO is an overall better juicer. It can do more and have less chance clogging. The 8006 can juice just about anything well. The VRT does a better (faster) job with carrots and when you juice fruits (apples, oranges, etc). Although the VRT will juice leafy greens it has more of a tendency to clog greens, whereas the 8006 excels in this area. If you find you will only focus on fruits, carrots, and an occaision leafy green, then get the VRT. If you plan to juice a fair amount of leafy greens, wheat grass, some fruits, and want the flexibility to do more i.e. banana sorbet, coffee, peanut butter, etc. then get the 8006. Don't get me wrong, I juice two apples, and an orange thru my 8006 every morning, but I also load it with leafy greens. Leafy greens provide the most nutrution per ounce than any fruit. Another thought, if you only juice fruits and are more interested in smoothies, then you should buy a Vita-Mix blender (own one of these too. Different purpose). For most, the 8006 will make you happier in the end. The VRT does produce juice slightly quicker than the 8006, however the 8006 cleans easier. Both models benefit from low rpm juicing. Why is that important? The low rpm does not produce friction heat, therefore your juice will not oxidize as quick. Which means the low rpm quality of your juice from both a taste and nutrution stand point of view will be much higher quality versus a juicer that whips out juice using 15,000 rpm technique. Because of this Omega claims your 8006 and VRT juice can store in the frig up to 72 hours before it goes bad. I have used both (and others), if I would only own one, it would be the 8006. BTW, if you plan to juice wheat grass, don't even think about the VRT, the 8006 is the one! I researched for nearly two years before deciding to buy the 8006 over the VRT. A Omega customer service rep. told me they have less users calling with problems or complaints on the 8006 than any other model. The Omega rep told me VRT users should be more "techie" and more advanced juicers, therefore knowing the VRT limitations. Both of these juicers offer low rpm juicing. I have also have a 20 year old Acme high rpm juicer, when juicing green apple juice in both machines, the 8006 flavor is significantly better (tastier) and the color of the juice is green vs. my old high rpm Acme juicer quickly browns (oxidizes) before your eyes. ....low and slow is always better....lol. laugh out loud BTW John Kohler at discountjuicers.com is the juicer king and today's juicer authority since he sells 90% of the juicers made today. He has great pricing, but this deal (Macy's) smokes any of his offers (today anyway). For knowledge, John is a wealth of info. check out his comparision videos and you will probably end up with the 8006. This is a smokin good price.
