Trying out my new masticating juicer

last modified: 8 years ago

I used a gift card from my daughter, cashed in my Amazon points, and bought myself an Omega J8004 masticating juicer. I've been using the Acme Juicerator centrifugal juicer I bought decades ago. Last year I tried a Breville Juice Fountain Plus like the one in the movie, "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead," (another centrifugal) but I didn't like it as well.

The masticating process is different, and is said to result in less loss of vitamins and enzymes. As a result, you can make more than you need at one time, and refrigerate some to drink later. I found the juice slightly thicker than what comes out of the centrifugal juicers, and much more flavorful. The machine is heavy, and quieter than the other juicers I've owned.
