What Is a Masticating Juicer?
A Masticating juicer, also known as a low-speed juicer, are a type of juicing appliance that juices using crushing and squeezing at a slow speed. Because the juicer works at a slow speed, usually there would be NO foaming, clogging or heat build up. It also protects oxidation and keeps the healthy enzymes of fruits and vegetables. The design of a Masticating juicer is usually horizontal, the juice comes out of one end and the pulp comes out another, where those are located will depend on the model of the juicer.

What Is The Difference Between The Omega J8006 vs. J8008?
- We’ve tried to look hard into this as there’s not much information to find. It seems that the difference is in the design, power and where the juicer is made.
- The J8006 has a different handle design than the J8008, which isn’t a big deal.

If you’re not fussy about colors, then we recommend you buy the J8004 as it will cost you less while giving you the full features of the J8006.

- Using Hurom's cold-pressing system, 35% more juice is extracted from your foods than with traditional high-speed juicers, leaving less and drier pulp.
- Hurom's patented Slow Squeezing Technology (SST) gently squeezes ingredients, preserving natural taste & nutrients lost by high-speed juicers that grind and crush. Slow Squeezing Technology also retains heat-sensitive nutrients such as Vitamins A and C, and live enzymes.
- The Hurom masticating juicer can easily process fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, wheatgrass, nuts, and soy to make a variety of juices, milks, sauces, marinades, even baby food.
- Hurom's durable motor has a 10-year warranty, uses only 150 watts of energy and is practically silent.
- The cold-press juicer features a heavy-duty Ultem strainer and auger, which is eight times stronger than traditional plastics and handles both coarse and fine foods easily.
The Hurom HU-100 runs at the same speed as the Omega J8006, 80 RPMs. It also runs as the same power of 150 Watts. Both juicers are made in South Korea.
- First difference is the design: The Hurom HU-100 has a vertical design, while the Omega J8006 has a horizontal design.
- The second major difference is that the Omega is a mutli-functional juicer that not only juices fruit and greens, but it also minces meats, processes food, makes nut butters, and grinds coffee. The Hurom is a juicer only with no added functions.

Omega J8006 vs. Breville BJS600XL, What’s The Difference?
- Masticating juicer extracts maximum juice yield from soft fruits and vegetables
- Ultra quiet 240-watt motor

- The one feature that the Breville has that the other juicers don’t is the Direction Control feature. This allows you to forward or reverse the direction the juicer is going. Why is this important? It comes very useful when fruit or vegetable jams happen. If you’ve got a piece of food jammed in the juicer, simply reversing the direction can get it unstuck.
- Unlike the Omega J8006, this Breville juicer has only one function of slow-juicing and not anything else.

We can’t really compare the Breville 800JEXL to any of the previous juicers we talked about as they don’t fall into the same category. The Breville 800JEXL is one of the highest end juicers you can buy, and probably has the best quality possible. It’s a great purchase, as long as you know it’s not a masticating juicer, so if that’s what you’re looking for, this isn’t the juicer for you.
