Australia's No.1 Omega Seller

The 8000 series of juicers is the predecessor of the NC range from the incomparable Omega brand. The 8228 is a strong and capable machine in its own right and will not only produce amazing cold press juices, it is capable of creating foods such as nut butters, baby food, soy milk, nut milks and tasks such as extruding pastas, grinding spices, mincing herbs and garlic - amongst others. The Omega 8228 really is the complete system allowing you to be as creative as you want, with the ingredients that you choose.

Omega has been successfully operating in the discerning US market for decades and has positioned themselves as the go-to brand for cold press juicers, blenders and their complete Nutrition Centres. You just have to read the reviews on US-based websites to see that they are well regarded.


Explanation of Model Numbers: the 8228 is identical to the US version 8008. The number '2' distinguishes the fact that the machine has an Aussie plug at the end of the cord and is suited to our 220/240V power. This is the only difference. Do not get sucked in to buying a 110V anything from overseas sites - they will not cope with the 240V. The 8228 (Chrome) is identical to the 8227 (Silver) with the only difference being the colour/finish. The 8227 is a matt silver/grey and the 8228 is a glossy chrome finish.

Exceptionally quiet in operation, the Omega 8228 will help you attain that healthy diet you have been looking for. Manufactured in South Korea, the Omega range has been available in the US only - until now. With the Americans being a particularly fussy market, the Omega juicers have been designed with robust parts, a strong motor and with minimum-fuss in mind. You won't be disappointed with your selection of an Omega.

The 8000 Series compared to the NC Range: The 8226 is the earliest model of the 8000 series and some changes have been implemented in subsequent models (ie. 8227/8228). The size of the feed chute is slightly smaller in the 8226/7/8 as opposed to the NC range and there is no adjustable end cap such as the one on the NC's. This cap allows you to adjust the pressure inside the drum based on the type of food you are juicing - ie. sloppy citrus fruits vs leafy greens such as wheatgrass which can become like a tough rope once twisted and juiced. This feature is not available on the 8000 machines so the pulp flows out freely and umimpeded.

The differences in the 8000 series - the feeding chute on the 8227/8228 is slightly larger than the 8226; the juicing screen has a larger surface area on the 8227/8228 which improves efficiency and yield of juice; the juicing screen has a stainless steel sleeve which reinforces the part.

Should any part or parts of the Omega 8228 Juicer become defective during the first 10 full years or the motor during the first 20 full years, the Australian Distributor (located in QLD) will repair or replace the defective part/parts or motor at the manufacturer’s option free of charge.

The Omega brand has been trusted by American customers for decades. Now available here in Australia. All Omega Juicers are 100% BPA-Free.

The Omega range is fast becoming Australia's favourite choice in cold press juicers. Make one yours today. Quality manufacturing from South Korea. Great warranty - Great results.

What you are seeing here is the Omega 8228 Cold-Press Juicer (equivalent to the 8008 but with Aussie plugs). The 8228 is equipped with a powerful motor and thoroughly chews up plant fibers to fully extract vitamins, enzymes, and minerals from fruits and vegetables.

The unit's dual-stage juicing system ensures maximum efficiency, while its low rotation speed of 80 RPMs means no foaming, no clogging, and no heat build-up. You can drink your juice straight away or store it in a sealed container in the fridge for consumption up to a few days (some sites say 48hrs, some say 72hrs - I think it's up to you to make the choice based on what you see in the container. If it looks or smells dodgy, don't drink it. Use common sense more than figures from marketing blurb).

Other highlights include a high juice yield with very dry pulp, an automatic pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing, heavy-duty construction, four stabilizing feet, and quiet operation. Easy to assemble, operate, and clean.

Nutrition Systems are not just for juicing; they turn nuts into nut butter, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices, mince herbs and garlic, make baby food, and whip up soy milk in a flash. Use Nutrition Systems to make delicious healthy drinks and snacks everyone will love.

The Omega brand has been trusted by American customers for decades. Now available here in Australia and fast becoming the go-to Juicer brand for Aussies. Sales have increased dramatically since early-2016. All Omega Juicers are 100% BPA-Free.

Customer Reviews & Quotes

"Wow! what a nice machine. I had been using another juicing machine for a few months before it broke down. The amount of juice yield from that machine was not great, as the pulp still very moist. I thought that was how juicing machine work, until I got this Omega 8008 juicer. The juice yield is much better than I thought, and most importantly, this machine is quiet and almost vibration free. LOVE IT !!." - Golden Cuspid

"I purchased this unit a while back, but felt it was time to put in my two cents...built to last, strong motor, makes great juices and butters, has a easy clean up, and seems to still be going strong. Cons for the unit are it does not like too soft of fruits...the screen on the juicer get clogged when too soft of fruit is used...I have got around this flaw by doing a soft fruit and then following up with a crunchy veggie or fruit...would buy again in heart beat" - Amazon US Customer

"I am obsessed with this juicer. It does my softer fruits like grapes, cherries and pineapples as long as I follow it up with harder fruit too. It's a fantastic juicer. Very happy with my purchase." - Shanny Anny

"I've had this juicer for almost 4 weeks now. Been juicing every day once, sometimes twice each day. I am thoroughly happy with it. I'd say juicing takes about 15-20 minutes tops to make the juice and clean up the parts. I make about 2 pints per session. The juice that results is very delicious, and the machine appears to be very efficient extracting the juice as the remaining pulp is extremely dry. Also the machine, being a horizontally layed out, fits conveniently on the counter top. I would recommend this juicer to anyone." - Amazon US Customer

Cold press juice extractor retaining a very high level of nutrients and enzymes.   

 

Quiet operation - ideal for those who like it quiet at home. 

 

Easy & quick to clean - minimal moving parts. Parts are dishwasher safe but it is best to hand wash the parts immediately after using (or when you've finished your glass of juice!). After awhile, some parts may develop a film or scale and this is easily removed by either soaking in some water/bi-carb soda or in baby bottle cleaning solution.

 

The Omega 8228 has an upgraded juicing screen. Designed with dual stainless steel inserts, the screen boasts 25% more surface area than previous models (as well as the Oscar range). For added strength, the screen is now made with thicker plastic. These improvements ensure the Omega 8228 Nutrition Centre is more efficient and durable than prior models.

 

The Omega 8228 also has a larger feeding chute than previous models (as well as the Oscar range)

Love this juicer. The quality of juice is really good- so much better than any I've bought in the shops! So easy to use and clean - my 3 yr old loves using it and my 7 yr old can even pull it apart, rinse it and put it back together for him!. (Posted on 22/06/2015)
