Omega Juicer J8003
Low Speed Masticating Juicers
Both juicers are slow masticating juicers. The “slow” part means that the motor rotates many fewer times per minute than other juicer types like centrifugal juicers. This low-speed prevents your juice from heating up which maximizes your nutritional benefits.
The masticating part means that the juicer works a lot like your teeth. Food put in this juicer is crushed and chewed maximizing juice extraction.
The slow process minimizes oxidation which means that you can store your juice in the refrigerator longer (up to 72 hours) without nutrient or flavor degradation. This gives you the freedom to make more juice in advance which is a huge benefit of a quality slow juicer. Other benefits of a slow juicer include quiet operation and less foam.
Power and Performance…
Both juicers in the Omega J8003 vs J8004 comparison are powerful. But the J8004 is more powerful. A nice amount more powerful. While the motors are the same, the difference is in the auger. The Omega J8004 has a GE Ultem auger that is eight times stronger than the auger found on the J8003. In fact, the gear reduction of the J8004 is the equivalent of two horsepower. So, performance will definitely be better with the J8004 but both will perform very well for you.
There are two stages to the juicing process for both machines. First, your fruit and vegetables are crushed (chewed), extracting juice. Then it is pressed to release even more juice. Your pulp will be nearly dry. And the auto-eject pulp feature means that you can juice and juice without having to stop. This process makes these Omega juicers very efficient.
But these powerful juicers aren’t limited to just juicing. With either model you will be able to: make nut butters, pasta, salsa, soy milk and more.

Omega Juicer J8004
A product warranty is definitely a tale-tale sign of quality. Although there are exceptions, the best quality products have long warranties (5 years or more is what I consider long, depending on the product category). Both juicers in the Omega J8003 vs J8004 debate have long warranties. The Omega J8003 has a 10-year warranty while the Omega J8004 has a 15-year warranty.
Looks and Size…
Both models in the Omega J8003 vs J8004 measure 14.5 inches x 6.5 inches x 15.5 inches. Considering the huge health benefits you gain from a juicer like this, the footprint is pretty small. They take up relatively little counter space.
They look like identical twins. They pretty much are. I’ve looked at both models over and over again and I only see very small differences in appearance. For example, the feet on the J8003 are black while the J8004 has gray feet.
Juicers are small kitchen appliances that are notoriously difficult to clean. It is a process to clean these Omega juicers too. But both these juicers come apart pretty easily so you can access the parts that need to be cleaned. Some customers claim to be able to clean their Omega juicer in less than a minute.
