The juicer is very easy to clean and doesn’t splatter on your table or counter. Although it is a slow juicer and you’ll get a glass of juice in less than 5 minutes, you need to consider that it is slow due to low 80 RPM which ensures full flavor with highest nutritional value.
For some people chopping vegetables is a constant problem to feed their juicers. But if you feed chopped vegetables and fruits juice will be made faster. In case you are bothered about chopping, you can simply drop them into juicer and they are taken care of nicely. Additionally, you don’t even have to use a plunger to push them inside.
As compared to other brands, 8003 is compact and smaller. It can be assembled without any hassle. It is great with leafy vegetables and which don’t get wound around the auger as they do in many other similar products.

Omega 8003 Juicer Overall review
This product is a masticating juicer which often people mistake for centrifugal juicers. A centrifugal juicer is best for people who are looking for a quick fruits or carrots juice. However, masticating juicer is for a patient person who is looking at getting more nutritional value from his or her juicing efforts. In 8003 you do not end up losing nutrients to oxidation as you do that in some 1600 RPM centrifugal juicers. The pulp obtained is so dry that the juice produced is flavorful and thicker.
