If you are enthusiastic about juicing for health, you probably already know that the greatest health benefit comes from using a masticating juicer and juicing a wide range of ingredients, with green vegetables and leaves being particularly important. Up until a few years ago selecting a juicer that does a good job with green vegetables used to mean making a commitment to spending more time juicing, because many greens capable juicers took a bit longer to use and clean. With the advent of vertical slow juicers like the Sana by Omega EUJ-808, even greens juicing is now quick and efficient.
Assembly is easier because instead of twisting and locking onto the motor body, the juicing parts on the EUJ-808 simply push vertically down into place. The Dual Edge Auger drives the wiper blades without the need for a separate gear in the juice bowl. The elimination of the gear mechanism present in the older models makes for simpler clean up and a design that’s less vulnerable to wear and damage.
With styling similar to some coffee machines the EUJ-808 will appeal to those who like that look and its angular profile will fit snugly into a corner in your kitchen. It does have a larger footprint than the more compact Omega VSJ version that’s also in our range. There is a juice valve that eliminates drips onto your kitchen counter when you finish juicing. Perhaps the biggest advantage of the juice valve is that at clean up time it allows the juicer to hold cleaning water inside it while being operated which means that the silicone wiper blades can do most of the clean up before you disassemble the juicer. Pulpy juice has historically been an issue that some people comment on with slow juicers. The Sana by Omega 808 juicer gives much less pulp in the juice than most other slow juicers on the market and a higher juice yield that’s equalled only by the Omega VSJ.

Amazing juicer. Bought about a year ago and so far very happy with it. The only minus is that over time, even if thoroughly cleaned after juicing, there is a thin build up created in a bowl and on the juicer parts. This was a bit of a disappointment for me as I expected regular cleaning after juicing would be enough. Every now and then it needs to be soaked in the water for a couple of hours and cleaned with a brush to get rid of the build up. But I guess it might be the same with other juicers.
