Champion vs Omega Juicer 2024 Comparison

Champion vs Omega Juicer

Omega and Champion are two popular names amongst juicing enthusiasts. These brands have been manufacturing juicers for decades between them, and their products are some of the most popular available today.

In this guide, I’ll be comparing the Champion Classic 2000 vs the Omega J8006HDS Nutrition Center Juicer. Both juicers are masticating juicers, but that doesn’t mean they’re identical in performance and operation.

I’ve put these juicers head-to-head in a number of important categories, including performance and juice quality, ease of use, and customer feedback. By the end of this comparison review, you should know which juicer excels in which area – and which is right for you.

🍎 Produce They Can Process

Champion Classic 2000

The Champion juicer can process almost any type of produce, from dense veggies to soft fruits. This juicer can also process leafy greens (though it isn’t the most efficient on the market) and wheatgrass, with the separate wheatgrass attachment. Some beans and nuts can be processed in this juicer.

Examples of the produce you can juice in the Champion juicer are celery, pineapple, ginger, cucumber, pear, carrots, apple, berries, kiwifruit, mango, tomato, peach, strawberry, citrus fruits, and pineapple.

Similarly, the Omega J8006HDS can process dense and soft produce, as well as citrus fruits, leafy greens, nuts, and beans. You can also use this juicer for making almond and soy milk.

Examples of the ingredients that can be juiced in this machine include watermelon, apples, ginger, cucumber, spinach, citrus fruits, strawberries and other berries, kiwifruit, kale, and wheatgrass.

🚦Performance and Juice Quality

Champion Classic 2000

Looking at the product description, you’d be inclined to believe that the Champion juicer was a centrifugal juicer because of its fast, 1725 RPM performance. However, this juicer, intended for commercial use, still has the classic masticating juicer design – it’s just made to operate very quickly.

With its high-speed operation, the Champion juicer technically belongs to a classification of juicers that doesn’t really exist yet. What does this mean for the juice quality? Produce has a shorter contact time with the auger, so although you can enjoy the convenience of fresh juice in seconds, there will be less of it. The high-speed performance also introduces heat and oxidation, causing nutrient loss.

Omega J8006HDS Nutrition Center Juicer

The Omega J8006HDS is a traditional slow juicer, operating at a speed of 80 RPM – exactly what you’d expect for a masticating juicer. The juicer uses Omega’s dual-stage masticating process to extract a high yield of nutritious juice from fruits and vegetables.

During juicing, produce is crushed by the auger and is pushed into the juicing screen, which extracts juice through the tiny holes. The pulp is ejected from the juicer and the juice flows out of the juice spout. As a dual-stage juicer, the Omega is one of the most efficient juicers out there – but you can get even more out of your produce if you drop the pulp back into the juicer for a second run.

The resulting juice is high quality and flavorful. You’ll get more enzymes and nutrients in this juice than you will from similar masticating juicers – and much more than juice from the Champion juicer. You can store the juice in a sealed container for up to 72 hours after juicing.

If you’re looking for a slow juicer, you’ll need to rule the Champion juicer out. In this case, the Omega J8006HDS is better because it extracts more juice and limits oxidation with its slow-speed operation.

✨ Components & Accessories

Champion Classic 2000

As well as the juicer body and cutter, the Champion juicer comes with a screen and holder, a blank, a tamper, a funnel, a juice bowl, a sieve, and a booklet. There are no fancy additional accessories included with this machine, which is fine if you’re looking for a simple, easy-to0-use juicer that doesn’t require different parts for different occasions.

The Champion juicer is a heavy, bulky machine, so you’ll need plenty of side space and storage space for this juicer.

Componets and accessories of Champion Classic 2000

Omega J8006HDS Nutrition Center Juicer

Included with the Omega J8006HDS are a juice cone, a pulp bowl, a juice bowl, and a strainer. Also included is a homogenizing cone and 6 nozzles – 4 for pasta and 2 breadstick. The Omega is the sort of juicer you can experiment with if you ever get bored of making juice.

As a horizontal juicer, the Omega is quite clunky and heavy-duty, but it’s lighter than the Champion juicer.

In this comparison, there’s no winner. You may prefer the Champion juicer’s simple design, or you may enjoy the idea of using the various accessories included with the Omega J8006HDS.

πŸ”Š Noise Output

Champion Classic 2000

For a cold-press juicer with a single auger, the Champion juicer is quite noisy. This is because the heavy-duty motor works at a much higher speed than the average masticating juicer. Even so, the noise level is low compared to the volume you’d get from a fast juicer.

Omega J8006HDS Nutrition Center Juicer

The Omega J8006HDS’s slow and steady cold press juicing process makes this juicer one of the quietest available today. The machine emits a low hum during operation, but it isn’t loud enough to drown out conversation.

In noise comparison, the Omega wins – but only just. Both of these juicers are fine to use during antisocial hours.

🧼 Ease of Use & Cleanup

Champion Classic 2000

The Champion juicer takes a bit of practice to put together, but assembly is easy once you know what you’re doing. However, this single-auger juicer requires a bit of extra maintenance – you’ll need to lubricate the motor shaft with olive or coconut oil.

The feed chute is by no means the biggest you can buy, and you’ll need to cut larger fruits and vegetables to size before juicing. It’s especially important to cut stringy items like celery, as these have a tendency to wrap around the auger and clog the juicer.

You’ll need to push produce down the chute continuously to keep the juicer moving, as the Champion juicer doesn’t juice continuously. There’s an included tamper that can be used for this purpose.

Cleaning the Champion juicer is easy, but the parts aren’t safe for dishwasher loading, so you’ll need to clean manually.

Clean the juicer as soon as possible to prevent stains from solidifying. Cold, soapy water is best for washing this juicer. There’s no cleaning brush included with this juicer, so I recommend buying your own.

Omega J8006HDS Nutrition Center Juicer

The Omega J8006HDS is easy to use, taking just minutes to set up and switch on, ready for juicing. The chute isn’t large enough to fit whole produce, so you’ll still need to take some time chopping your fruits and vegetables before getting started.

The juicer’s food tray is a handy accessory that you can store your produce on before putting it into the juicer. This version of the Omega comes with a larger food tray than previous versions, giving you more room for your ingredients.

To help direct food into the juicer’s barrel and help items catch on the auger, you can use the included plunger.

Cleaning the Omega J8006HDS is also a breeze. After taking the machine apart, you just need to place the components in warm water and wash the pulp away. The included cleaning brush will help you to scrape the pulp out of the juicing screen.

If you don’t like the sound of manual cleaning, you’ll be happy to know that this juicer’s parts are safe for the top rack of the dishwasher.

Both juicers are easy to clean, but the Omega is the winner because you can save time by loading its parts in the dishwasher.

πŸ’²Models & Upfront Cost

Champion Classic 2000

The Champion Classic 2,000 costs just over $400, which is on the higher end of the price scale for masticating juicers. The cost of this juicer comes down to its unique design – you’ll struggle to find any other high-speed masticating juicer on the market. This juicer produces more juice than centrifugal juicers, but works more quickly than a masticating juicer.

Omega J8006HDS Nutrition Center Juicer

The Omega J8006HDS is slightly cheaper, costing just under $350. This is still pricey for a masticating juicer, but in this case, you’re paying for a high-quality product from a reliable brand. The price reflects the quality of the juice, as well as the durability of the components.

In terms of value for money, I think you get a better deal with the Omega J8006HDS. You pay around $100 less for a juicer that provides a higher juice content with minimal nutrient loss. However, if speed is important to you, you may want to pay extra for the Champion juicer.

πŸ’‘ Champion vs Omega Juicers FAQ

How Long do these Models Take to Make Juice?

According to customer reviews, the Omega juicer does a slower job of producing juices, and will take around 45 seconds (excluding preparation and setup) to yield a 12-ounce glass of fruit or vegetable juice. The Champion is much better in terms of speed, and can yield a glass of juice in a matter of seconds. If you need to make big batches of juice in a short space of time, the Champion is best for you. However, none of these juicers are exceedingly slow.

Are Champion Juicers or Omega Juicers Better?

It depends on what you’re looking for. There are several types of Champion juicers and Omega juicers, for one. But if we just look at the juicers on this list, the Champion model has been built for commercial use, being a slow juicer that actually works fast. Reviews say that this model has the power you need for juicing a range of produce, but it isn’t best for juicing greens. If you’re looking for a fast juicer that’ll produce less heat and oxidation than a centrifugal machine, this model is well worth considering.

The Omega juicer has a much slower RPM, with a powerful motor and twin-gear operation that can handle everything – from fruit and veggies to non-juice ingredients – and provide juices with a great taste. This model has a better warranty and various included attachment options, but some reviews say that while the motor is strong, some of the juicer’s detachable parts aren’t. If you’re looking for a high-power household juicer that retains the most enzymes and flavor in juices, the Omega is worth your money.
