The Omega 8002 Nutrition Center is a new single gear, masticating juicer put out by the Omega company to bring its masticating line up to date with the latest technology and materials. The Omega Nutrition Center, is exactly what the name suggests it serves as an all in one machine for all your nutritional needs, not just juicing.
The single gear turns at a low 80 RPM’s which minimizes heat creation as well as giving you little to no foam in your juice. And is purpose built to give you the highest juice yield, and the driest pulp possible. With a built in reverse mode, which takes out a lot of the clogging problems that you might have seen in older models.

The Omega 8002 Nutrition center, unlike most other Omega products literally blows other similar machines out of the water in its reviews. Carrying a 5 out 5 of stars possible average rating, which means every review is a 5 star excellent rating. Which is very rare to come by with this kind of product. Especially if you figure, most people only review a product if they had a problem. So to have only positive reviews gives high praise to the machine. And if the amount of people who found the reviews helpful (Amazon) is any indication, the reviews indicate only a tiny portion of actual happy buyers.
The only complaint that could be found after looking through everything, was that unlike the growing trend of large chute juicers. The Omega 8002 has a fairly small feed chute, which means you do need to cut up anything apple sized or larger. Which, overall isn’t a big deal you really should be doing so anyway to maximize the efficiency of the juicer to begin with.
One reviewer compared the Omega to a Braun model which they were stuck with (their words) after moving to Scandanavia. The Omega puts out higher quality juice, thanks to the slow RPM’s and makes the pulp much drier then the Braun did.
Overall, if you need a multipurpose machine. That functions very well as a juicer, as well as serving numerous other needs without having to buy every individual extra attachment you need. The Omega 8002 is probably the most solid buy currently on the market.
