The trays are Jiffy brand from Home Depot 11x22 no drain holes for $1.58 each. You can but hard winter wheat berries for about $1.20/lb at a natural health food store. 1lb will cover two trays. You want to use organic soil, no animal compost. They take on average 10 -12 days to grow. You have to water twice a day. Each tray this size will yield 8-12 oz. I learned all of this in the last two weeks buy reading and watching lots of videos. It is really pretty easy to do and a lot cheaper to do yourself. You can read up by Googling "how to grow wheat grass". Sproutpeople.org is a good site as well and they have a lot of YouTube videos
Awesome! You gave me a project for the weekend. I have an Omega VRT350HD but I've read conflicting reviews on running wheat grass through it. It clogs easily if you use thick produce unfortunately and you have to kind of alternate product to make it work efficiently... i wish I would have purchased the 8006 @ $209 ... nice deal.

Out of curiosity, why is everyone so into making shakes with wheatgrass/growing their own?
Partially there are claims of the ridiculous health benefits of wheat grass. No scientific studies support these claims. They are quite similar to veggies like broccoli/spinach/etc.

Growing wheat grass is great because it grows FAST. That's really the main benefit, a steady supply of juice supplier grown cheap with little maintenance.

hit up a juice bar and get a juice... you get a super insane sugar high feels like you sniffed computer air duster... Embarrassment... after about a week you really feel great and your facial skin changes, too.

How does wheatgrass turn out in something like the Vitamix? I have the Juicetiger and, although the pulp is pretty dry when it's done...it's sad to throw out all that pulp. Rather drink it. Planning on buying a powerful blender to get me smoothies.
I've heard you don't want to put wheatgrass in a Vitamix. Doesn't work well.

We have the Omega 8004. I think it's actually the same thing as this 8006 but a different color. We like it a lot, but I also hate throwing out all the pulp. I've thought about selling mine and getting a Blendtec or Vitamix. It depends what you want. Both a blender and a juicer have their pros and cons.

Blender = blends everything (including pulp), fast and easy setup and cleanup. Probably a little more versatile in that you can blend a lot of fruits and make smoothies. Juicing fruits isn't advised because you're removing the fiber, thus allowing your body to absorb all of the sugars in the fruits much easier. This would create a spike in your blood sugar.

Masticating Juicer (like the 8004 or 8006) = remove pulp from juice so you're only consuming the juice. Because of this, you want to use organic produce to avoid consuming all of the pesticides and other crap that comes along with conventional fruits and veggies.

When we use our juicer, we'll juice veggies 95% of the time (kale, spinach, ginger, collard greens, chard, wheatgrass, and occasionally beets and carrots) and once in a while throw in some fruit, either an apple or pear.

so you dont like the VRT350? I thought that was the better machine and I've been waiting for a deal on that. I see the 330 at Macy's is about $227 now...

I bought the 8004 (white version of 8006) back in May when the manufacturer's website was letting them go for $130 (my best SD of 2012). I have been using it pretty heavily lately and can provide some insights. In short: it's great. The pulp comes out DRY and everything I've tried so far (cucumber, tomato, celery, apple, pear, blueberry, broccoli, spinach, beets, kale, parsley, cabbage, lemon, ginger, oranges, carrots, sweet potato, bell pepper, pineapple, plum, mango, garlic, strawberries) has gone through it effortlessly. The only thing that's given it any trouble so far are raspberries. They sometimes mash up before the auger is done pushing them to the extraction point and get stuck. Running something solid through after them usually clears it out though. I've even used this thing to make almond butter (it comes with attachments to use it as a food processor and it can be used to make nut butters, noodles, and breadsticks as well). I do wish the tube to feed in produce was a little wider, as a large apple cut into quarters is just slightly too wide to fit, as is a particularly large carrot. I really can't complain though, it's a fantastic machine and I highly recommend it.

I felt horribly wasteful at first throwing out all that pulp, so I looked up creative ways to put it to use other than the obvious option of composting it. Assuming you are not on an all-juice diet, you can actually bake it into breads and things or sneak it into your cooking (sprinkled into sauces, for example). Here are a few suggestions:

Having BB&B price match is a no-brainer, they have a forever return policy....

Thanks for this. I've also heard you can use it to make dog treats. Never tried this but there's a website online that explains everything. If anyone has dogs and you don't like giving them treats from China, it's worth checking out.

I too got our 8004 last May when it was $130 on here. Easily one of my best SDs to date. I wasn't even in the market for a juicer at the time. In fact, I didn't really know anything about juicers. Glad we got in on it though. It's been a great way to incorporate a variety of vegetables into our diet - especially vegetables that we wouldn't normally eat (kale, collard greens, wheat grass, chard, and ginger).

I just scored at BB&B. They agreed to price match it but they did the PM wrong. They took 40% off of their own in-store price ($300 vs. $350 @ Macy's), so I got it for $180 + tax = $194 OTD!
