ProPaleo: I also would like to know about the food processor attachment for mincing and chopping, omega isn't exactly clear on how this works prior to purchasing. Does it come included or sold separate?
Andy Cowan: That sounds terrible! Sounds like a dodgy batch if they broke in exactly the same way. Mine has been super robust. I'll be testing out a new masticating juicer (not from Omega) at the start of April 2013.
Denise Jones: I was looking at the J8006 but decided to go with the VRT350. It's a great juicer and it's weird but a friend bought the J8006 a week after I ordered theVRT350. Omega makes such great juicers!
Andy Cowan: Everything is included :) There are quite a few different attachemnts for pasta. I don't actually use them though. I find the "blank" plate comes in handy for making banana 'ice cream'.
The 'homogenizer' attachment you mention is the "blank" plate. It forces everything through the juicer and comes out at the end.
b: Thanks for posting this video. I am looking to order one of these and I was wondering what came standard with your device? The ad talks about a "food processor attachment" and a "homogenizer attachment." Are those included? It does say that it comes with pasta nozzles for extruding pastas etc but it's not quite so clear on the other attachments.
Are those sold separately?
Andy Cowan: @swanlinnet - Hi Vince, glad to hear you got it sorted out. It's always a little bit confusing when I get a new juicer, but after a few goes, it becomes second nature :)
I'm sure you'll have loads of fun with your J8006. Cheers,
swanlinnet: Thank you Andy . Your video have just saved my sanity !!!!!!!
Have just bought the Omega Juicer this afternoon. However upon unpacking all of the components I had no way of knowing somebody had already assembled the auger and 'other part' together.
And so I have been trying for the last hour or so to put the part provided for making puree into the already assembled auger. : ) : ) : : )
Your video was a Godsend. Really. Thank you for your help. Vince (Lancashire)
Andy Cowan: @Ineedmorelives - I've never made pasta with my J8006. But it did come with a bunch of different nozzles. You'd use the "blank" plate (which appears in the video) and then pick whichever shaped nozzle you require (not shown in the video).
Ineedmorelives: Did yours come with the pasta making plates?
