I know the Nutri Bullet is not a juicer but I have friends that use them and say they are much easier to clean than juicers. Can someone tell me the benefits of the J8006 at $189 versus the Nutri Bullet at $85?

Good eye, OP! Thanks, I have had this exact model sitting in my Amazon cart for a couple months, waiting for a drop. Wife's bday is next month, and this is exactly what she wants (but doesn't know it yet). Big Grin

Great juicer and worth every penny, I bought the VRT350 and have it boxed up to return it. Cleanup is easier with the 8006 and it is more versatile. You can make sorbet, pasta, nut butters and more. For me the biggest reason for keeping the 8006 is less foam and a tad more juice with leafy greens. The VRT350 is a great machine and juices a lot faster and requires less prep but cleanup is longer. In the end if I wasn't focused solely on leafy greens I would keep the VRT350 since the prep time is a lot less, I never minded the cleaning. Also, the VRT350 is self feeding where as the 8006 requires a plunger tool to force the veggies inside.

Thanks. Been checking Amazon and Macys daily b/c I've started growing wheatgrass and knew that there have been some good deals in the past.

Anybody have any experience using it as a pasta maker, food processor or coffee grinder? I'm guessing more effort/cleaning than it's worth.

I agree, i got this from the last amazon deal for 199, then returned it as cleaning and prep was a PITA, not to mention the amount of fruit that gets wasted, and you can store the juices for more than 2-3 days, they do go bad. my carrot-celery turned acid after 4 days.
Orange juice just turns to Glob and filtering to remove the pulp is so time consuming.
I'll stick to eating my fruits and let my gut do the juicing :-)
I definitely agree that the prep for the 8006 is a pain (small chute means you have to chop your fruits/veggies pretty small), but the cleaning is an absolute breeze compared to any other juicer I have ever used. I can disassemble and rinse this thing clean in under 2 minutes.

I also found that it makes incredible orange juice--but I am patient and willing to rinse it out again once every 3-4 oranges to keep the pulp screen clean.

I also have to say that compared to other styles of juicer, masticating juicers waste far less juice than centrifugal. The pulp that comes out of mine is bone dry. Yes, the fiber from the fruit/veggie is lost, but that's the whole idea behind using a juicer instead of a blender--removing the pulp/fiber allows your body to more quickly and easily absorb the vitamins and micronutrients.

Sorry if this post sounded like an attack, just had to put it out there that my experience has been pretty much the exact opposite of yours. I absolutely love this thing. I've also used it to make peanut butter, AMAZING fresh pasta, coconut cream, and banana sorbet.

This thing also juices leafy greens as well as or better than just about anything out there. Apple, carrot, kale, spinach, celery, and a touch of ginger/lemon. Ohhhh damn. The bright green color scares the hell out of my friends/family, but they get a taste and their jaws drop Big Grin

I personally like to strain the juice an extra 2-3 times to really reduce the pulp, but not everyone is that patient.

Has anyone been able to pick this up locally? I have a store that has it in stock or price matched with Amazon?

Go to Bed Bath and Beyond. They'll PM it. On top of that they have a hassle-free lifetime warranty on nearly everything they sell. I got my 8006 from them a few months ago. The first one had a crooked auger so the entire feed chute was moving up and down. I brought it back and exchanged it with no problems.

I agree that leafy greens are better in 8006 - but cleanup is difficult with the VRT? It takes me 5 minutes tops to clean all the pieces.. most just get a rinse under running water and plop onto the drying towel to dry... the auger, top and scraper housing fall in this category. The main housing takes a 30 seconds because occassionally you need to pull some pulp out of the tube.. and the screen takes about 60 seconds.. using the brush to go around on the outside and inside.. Takes MUCH longer to prep than it does to clean... I'd buy and recommend the vrt in a heartbeat... works for the greens.. but not as well as the 8006.. but then again, it does most other things better with no need to ever use the plunger (the 8006 requires a bit of force to get the food down).

Anyone has trouble checking out? It kept going back to the check out screen after I clicked on 'Place Order'.

Went to the san diego BB&B and they don't carry it in the stores.

PS this is the best deal I have ever seen. A couple of months ago it was $209... but this is a bargain for a top juicer.

I have the VERT I recently bought for the same price. Is it worth swapping? Looks like this one also has its downsides. Main downsides with the VERT is that it gets clogged when you do more than a cup at a time and when it starts to get clogged you get a ton of pulp in the juice. It also leaks from the base and there is always a pool of juice on the motor. Does the 8006 clog easily with leafy greens and other fibrous veggies? How much can you make at once? The VERT is great if you are only doing less than a cup.
8006 is better if you are primarily doing leafy greens....8006 also gives slightly less pulp in the juice, volume output on both models is about the same. 8006 is easier to clean though.

Which BBB did you go to? I got mine from the Mission Valley location. I did have to wait about a month before I could exchange for a new one because they were waiting for their inventory. I think they might actually be on back order from Omega.

Does anyone have a comparison between this juicer and something like a Hurom?

I asked Omega on their Facebook page what the difference is between the 8004 and 8006:

Me: What's the difference between the 8004 and 8006 besides color and price?
Like · · April 2 at 3:56pm

Omega Juicers: The 8006 is chrome plated. There is a thin layer of chrome on the housing. That is the color and price difference. Functionally, they are the same.
