PDF Content Summary: Instruction Manual For The Omega Model 8003/8005 Nutrition Center IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following: • Read all instructions. • To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not put the motor base in water or other liquid. • Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children. • Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning. • Avoid contact with moving parts. • DO NOT operate any appliances with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner. • Return appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair or electrical adjustment. • The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury. • DO NOT use outdoors. • DO NOT let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces. DO NOT place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven. DO NOT use appliance for other than intended use. • Be sure to switch to off position after each use of your juicer. • DO NOT put your fingers or other objects into the juicer opening while it is in operation. If food becomes lodged in the opening, use the plunger or another piece of fruit to push it down. When this method is not possible, turn the motor off and disassemble juicer to remove the remaining food. • DO NOT plug in until familiar with all the instructions and operating procedures. • DO NOT unplug from electrical outlet by pulling on the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord, and pull. • Turn off all controls before unplugging from or plugging into an electrical outlet. WARNING: This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

You are ready to use your Omega 8003/8005 Nutrition Center. All items will be placed down the feed chute. Use the plunger to press the items into the chute. Leave the machine running while you process the items. When juicing, the juice will exit the bottom of the drum and the pulp will exit out the end of the drum cap. For all other functions, everything will exit through the end of the drum cap. STEP 4 DO NOT place any metal objects into the hopper. DO NOT place any ice cubes into the hopper. If drum set is clogged or the machine stops operating, press the reverse button 2 to 3 times and press the ON button again to resume normal operation. STEP 5 Switch the juicer OFF before changing or touching any moving parts. Remove the drum set from the main body by turning the locking clip counterclockwise. Remove the Drum Cap by turning clockwise and pull out the screen/blank. Pull the auger forward to disassemble it from the drum set. After each juicing session, wash all parts in warm soapy water. All of the removable parts are dishwasher safe. Do NOT place the motor housing into the dishwasher. Do NOT run juicer more than 30 minutes continuously at any on time. Choosing the Correct Cones Juicing Screen This is the cone with the stainless steel mesh. It is used for all juicing functions and only juicing functions. Blank Cone This is the cone constructed of solid polycarbonate with a stainless steel rim on the inside. It is used for all functions except juicing. All six nozzles may be used with the blank cone. Choosing the Correct Nozzles Oval Nozzle • Mincing and chopping vegetables • Making nut butters • Homogenizing frozen fruit, milk or yogurt • Extruding breadsticks Round Nozzle • Mincing and chopping vegetables • Making nut butters • Homogenizing frozen fruit, milk or yogurt • Extruding breadsticks Four Remaining Nozzles • Extrusion of various sized pastas. SIEVE The included sieve, which fits on both of the bowls, should only be needed after processing items that seem to have too much pulp in the juice or foam on the top of the juice. It is best to use the sieve at the end of the juicing process by pouring all of the prepared juice through the sieve. JUICING FRUIT AND VEGETABLE JUICER Cone: Juicing Screen Nozzle: No Nozzle Needed HELPFUL HINTS •The included sieve, which fits on both of the bowls, should be needed after processing items that have more pulp or foam for your taste. It should not be used during the juicing process. It should be used at the end of the juicing process by pouring all of the prepared juice through the sieve. •While the Omega Nutrition Center can extract juice from unpeeled fruits and vegetables, we recommend you thoroughly wash and peel your fresh ingredients to remove accumulated chemicals. •Cutting fruit or vegetables into smaller pieces may help the juice be extracted more thoroughly. But, it is not necessary. •Turn on the machine and let it run without interruption until all the juice has been extracted. •When using a combination of soft and firm produce, alternate the items. It is best to start with the softer items and to finish with the firmer items. •If the pulp in the drum starts to clog or the juicer starts to vibrate slightly during operation, turn off the machine and empty the drum set. Reassemble and resume normal operation. •Do not juice anything that will change the taste in a negative way. (Example: orange rind) •Items that are traditionally thrown away for meals may be juiced. (Example: carrot or beet stems) •Soft produce will process more easily if refrigerated. •Items like ginger, lemon and beet may be added for taste. They should all be used according to your taste. Although they are listed in many of our recipes, they are optional. Make drinks that suit your personal taste or health needs. •After placing the last piece of fruit or vegetable into the hopper, keep the machine running for a few seconds longer to ensure the machine has extracted the last drops of juice. •Clean all parts that come into contact with juice after each use of the Omega 8003/8005 Nutrition Center. WHEAT GRASS AND GREENS JUICER Cone: Juicing Screen Nozzle: No Nozzle Needed HELPFUL HINTS •It is best to put smaller amounts in at a time and push them into the chute with the plunger rather that trying to force very large amounts into the chute. •Allow most of the juice to exit before pushing the next item in. •When using a small item or piece of an item for taste, insert that item during the first half of the juicing process. If inserted at the end, the full taste may not come through. •Various green drinks may be too strong for some people. If so, it is advised to add carrots or beets, which will sweeten or mask the taste of the greens so you may still enjoy its benefits and nutrients. •The included sieve fits on both of the bowls. It should only be needed when processing items that seem to have too much pulp in the juice or excessive foam on the top of the juice. The sieve should not be on any of the bowls during the juicing process. It should be used at the end of the juicing process by pouring all of the prepared juice through the sieve. GROUND COFFEE BEANS Cone: Blank Nozzle: Round Hole / Oval Hole To grind, gather needed quantity of coffee beans. Place the items in the chute at a steady pace. The items will come out finely ground. There should be no need to run the items through twice. Some coffee beans may have a higher oil content than others, especially gourmet coffee beans. These should be dried out overnight in order to process easier. HOMOGENIZING - NUT BUTTERS, FROZEN DESSERTS, ETC. Cone: Blank Nozzle: Round Hole / Oval Hole HELPFUL HINTS • Nut butters are an all-natural version of peanut butter. • Most nuts need additional oil added. • Remove all skins and shells from nuts. • Fruits can be cut into pieces and then frozen prior to juicing them. • Juice can be frozen in ice cube trays and those cubes can be put through the machine. • You may try to add milk, yogurt, syrups, or sugar to change the taste or consistency. MINCING AND CHOPPING Cone: Blank Nozzle: Round Hole / Oval Hole HELPFUL HINTS • The mincing/chopping function can be used in many “food processor” type ways. • Seed and peel any part of the fruit or vegetable that you do not want in the finished product. • Remove any fat from meat or poultry if not desired in the finished product. • Bone and scale fish before processing. • Chop or grind meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, herbs, and soaked rice and beans. • Uses include marinades, salsas, soups and sauces. PASTA EXTRUSION Cone: Blank Nozzle: Desired Nozzle HELPFUL HINTS • Water may be added if the dough becomes too dry. • Sprinkle a small amount of flour on the holding dish before making pasta. This will prevent sticking. • Sprinkle a small amount of flour on the pasta as it piles up. This will prevent sticking. • Pasta may be cut with scissors or knife to desired length. • Decide which styles of noodle you would like to make and place the appropriate nozzle on the 8003/8005. Place the pasta in the shape of balls or tubes (slightly smaller than the opening). • A consistent motion without any gaps will give you longer noodles as the pasta exits. • The freshly made pasta should be put into boiling water. It will cook much quicker than store- bought pasta. Keep checking in order to remove the pasta at the desired consistency. • If you would like to get more creative, you can make any flavorful additions you'd like. Spinach, basil, or sun dried tomatoes may be added to the pasta dough. • Leftover vegetable juice or pulp may be mixed into dough for extra flavor. • The pasta function of the 8003/8005 is to only extrude pasta. The unit is not designed to make pasta. The following recipe can be done by hand or in a mixer. • If you would like to attempt the full process of making the pasta in the 8003/8005, try the following: after the ingredients are mixed enough that you now have a ball of dough, run the dough through the 8003/8005 several times to knead the dough. Do not use any nozzle when doing this. Recipes WHEAT GRASS AND GREEN RECIPES Wheat grass 5 or 6 handfuls of wheat grass Wheat grass regimens should be started slowly. This natural anti-oxidant can make people nauseous until their body gets used to it. Only an ounce or so is suggested until your body acclimates. Mixing with carrots can soften the taste. Carrot Parsley A “bunch” of parsley 4 or 5 carrots Inserting the parsley first, followed by the carrots. Wheat grass Carrot Handful of wheat grass 5 or 6 carrots Insert the wheat grass, followed by the carrots. HOMOGENIZING RECIPES Nut Butter 2 or 3 cups of nuts, Peanut oil (or other nut oil), and salt (optional/to taste) Place small handfuls of nuts in the juicer. Allow the nuts to process before placing the next handful in the chute. Most nuts will need small amounts of oil added at times to keep the moisture level higher. Most nuts will need to be processed multiple times to gain a smoother consistency. Banana - Banana Berry 2 or 3 bananas (peeled), 6 to 12 berries (no stems or seeds) Place items in a zip-lock style bag. Place the items in the freezer overnight. It is helpful to cut the bananas into smaller pieces before freezing. Place the frozen pieces into the juicer. The result is an ice cream or frozen yogurt-type dessert. You may run the item through multiple times to increase creaminess. Baby Food Fruits and/or vegetables (cleaned, no stems, rinds or seeds) Place fruits or vegetables into the chute. Most items should be processed twice. Most baby food should be diluted with water due to strength of straight juice. For taste or softness, some items may be cooked prior to processing. MINCING AND CHOPPING RECIPES Salsa 1 1/2 cups tomatoes (seeded) 1⁄4 cup red onions (peeled) 1 tbsp. garlic 1 tbsp. jalapeno 1 to 2 tbsp. cilantro – to taste (optional) 2 limes Salt (to taste) Freshly ground pepper (to taste) The two limes are needed for the juice only. You may juice them first or squeeze them for the juice. Process the first five items while alternating. If the mixture seems too wet, some juice may be drained. Add the limejuice. Stir. Salt and pepper to taste. PASTA EXTRUSION RECIPES Pasta Dough 3 cups Seminola flour (most flours may be substituted), 3 eggs, 1/8 tsp. Salt, and Water (as needed) •Place the flour on a large, flat surface. Make a bowl or well-type shape in the pile of flour to hold the other ingredients. Beat the eggs. Add the eggs and salt into the bowl of water. Use your hands or a fork to slowly incorporate the eggs into the inner layers of flour. Once the eggs become incorporated into the flour, begin kneading. Continue kneading until the dough becomes very firm. •If the dough does not feel dry enough, knead it by hand – adding semolina to the dough as you knead. Start by dusting a non-porous surface with seminola and place the dough on the dusted surface. Sprinkle some more of the semolina over the top of the dough, then knead the dough until it is smooth and very firm. •When you can set the dough on a clean countertop (without a dusting of flour underneath it) and trust that it won't stick, the dough is ready. Because of the size of the semolina grain, the dough may not be as smooth as it would be with a flour-based dough. •Wrap the pasta dough into an airtight plastic-wrapped ball. Set dough in a clean, dry area. Let it sit at room temperature for about an hour to give the gluten inside the flour a chance to relax. If the dough isn't given a chance to relax, it will be too stiff to work with and will yield tough noodles. Once your dough has had a chance to rest, unwrap it and make noodles. OMEGA PRODUCTS, INC.
