Reviews

That’s a quick snapshot of the best of the best. In this next section I’ll move onto the individual juicer reviews.

Breville 800CPXL Citrus Juicer

The Breville 800CPXL citrus press is your best option if you know you’re going to be working exclusively with citrus fruits.

You can think of this juicer as being a little like one of those lemon squeezing dishes you’ve probably used before. The fruit is wedged onto a central cone, then the machine rotates to extract the juice.

  • Powerful citrus press housed in professional-grade brushed stainless steel
  • Industrial strength, whisper-quiet motor; revolutionary active-arm system
  • 1-size-fits-all juicing cone provides maximum juice extraction; drip-stop juice spout

You get an impressive amount of juice from the machine, and with very little moisture left in the pulp. It’s always satisfying to get every last drop out of the ingredients you’ve bought!

I really like the modernist design of the 800CPXL too, and it’s a really sturdy, durable piece of kit. The die cast steel chassis doesn’t pick up too many marks, and I think it sits nicely alongside any collection of kitchenware.

It cleans up very easily too, and the parts that can be detached are dishwasher safe. There’s also a stainless steel filter that stops any seeds or pulp from making it into the drink. You might find yourself washing this one element by hand though – not uncommon.

As a bonus, it’s also incredibly quiet! If all you want to do is make a tasty glass of orange juice in the morning – without waking up the entire household – I think it’s an excellent choice.

If you’re not going to be branching out into the wilder side of home juicing, and just want to start the day with a crisp glass of orange or grapefruit juice, this is going to be the best Breville juicer for your kitchen.

Pros

  • Powerful press mechanism.
  • Incredibly quiet.
  • Single cone attachment handless all different citrus types and sizes.

Cons

  • Limited in the sense that you can only squeeze citrus juices with this appliance.
  • Some internal elements feel a little flimsy.
  • Not designed for intensive, big batch juicing.

Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite

The 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite is one of the best all-round centrifugal juicers on the market.

Although it has a beefy 1000 watt motor, the 800JEXL features two speed settings.

That means you can really chew through tough fruits and vegetables at a high speed, then switch to a lower speed for softer produce.

You’ll get the same excellent juice extraction in either case, but you don’t blitz soft items so thoroughly that you generate unnecessary heat, oxidization and foam.

The three inch feed chute is just about large enough to drop in whole fruits and vegetables. Obviously what you put in is going to end up in the drink! If you don’t want skins and seeds in your juice, you’ll need to do a little bit of prep work first.

I also like the Juice Fountain for preparing slightly bigger batches of juice. The juice jug supplied with the machine holds just over a liter of fresh juice, while the pulp container is around triple that size.

It’s a well-built juicer overall, using high quality materials, and it cleans up pretty easily too. The exterior can be wiped down with a damp cloth, and many of the muckier parts are dishwasher safe.

Pros

  • A versatile, powerful juicer that can work with any fruits and vegetables.
  • Slower speed setting means better juice from soft produce.
  • Easy to operate and clean up.
  • Durable, high-quality construction.

Cons

  • Relatively noisy, although it’s hard to make a powerful and quiet juicer!
  • Check the dimensions carefully. This one has a bigger footprint than many other machines.
  • Makes a little bit of mess if you’re not careful.

Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain

There are two big selling points for the BJE200XL: its size and its price point.

With those benefits comes a few compromises, but nothing that writes the appliance off for the right owner.

  • Short Prep Time: The Breville juicer machines unique 3 inch extra wide chute feed allows you to juice…

The 700 watt motor isn’t as powerful as that you’ll find on more expensive Breville juicers, but it still handles tough ingredients remarkably well.

It’s also got a much smaller footprint than other Breville machines, and it’s lightweight too. That’s handy if you have very limited countertop space, and want to be able to store it away between uses.

Being a smaller juicing machine, you won’t be able to make massive juice batches in a single sitting. If you’re just making drinks for one – and don’t need fancy features either – this is a very good entry level machine.

The motor only has one speed setting, so you can’t dial things down for softer produce. It’s also quite loud, so if you’re an early riser living with other people, it’s probably not going to make you any friends…

With that said, the trademark Breville build quality is very much present and correct here and it’s as easy to clean as any other with its dishwasher safe parts.

Pros

  • A great value, entry-level Breville juicer.
  • Small footprint and light weight make it ideal for small kitchens.
  • Impressive juice yield considering its power and positioning in the market.

Cons

  • Rather loud compared to other juices I’ve reviewed.
  • Not designed for big batch juicing. This is a single-serve appliance.
  • Only features a single speed setting for all ingredient types.

Breville BJE830SIL Juice Fountain Cold

If there’s one job the BJE830SIL excels at it’s tearing through leafy greens. This is the sort of ingredient that often gives juicers a real headache, and can leave a lot of grit in your drink.

It achieve this superior performance through sheer brute force. The motor on this centrifugal juicer can blitz your leafy greens at a 1200-watt power rating, although you can also dial down the speed when you’re juicing softer produce.

Breville BJE830SIL Juice Fountain Cold XL…
  • COLD SPIN TECHNOLOGY: Cold Spin Technology allows juice to flow up and through the stainless steel…
  • Shortend Prep Time ; The newly designed 3.5 inch extra large wide chute feed allows you to juice whole…
  • NOISE REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY: Juicing on quiet setting reduces mechanical noise by 40%

Any time you increase the power of a centrifugal juicer though you also increase the noise. Breville’s added a little extra tech though to limit the sound, but you shouldn’t expect an appliance that anyone would describe as quiet!

It also features an extra wide feed chute at 3.5 inches. That reduces the need to prep your ingredients, and provides a lot of space to fit whole produce in.

To accommodate all that juice, you also get a larger than average juice jug. It holds just over two liters of juice, which makes it ideal for large households.

If you just want to make a big batch for yourself, you can store the juice in your refrigerator for around three days.

Pros

  • A high capacity juicer that’s well-suited for preparing big batches.
  • Tackles leafy greens better than just about any other Breville juicer.
  • Cold Spin technology reduces heat build-up.

Cons

  • Can be hard to source at this stage of the product’s life.
  • Noisier than many other juicers, despite the noise-reduction technology.

Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus

The last of the Breville juicers I’ve reviewed for this guide is powered by an 850-Watt motor. That puts it somewhere in the middle of the range in terms of power and performance.

What this one offers amongst all the others though is sheer speed. You can expect to get a standard serving of juice from this appliance in a matter of seconds.

  • UNIQUE EXTRACTION SYSTEM: The Breville juicers titanium reinforced disc and Italian-made micro mesh…
  • SHORT PREP TIME: The juicers unique 3 inch extra wide chute feed allows you to juice whole fruits and…

That speed can be controlled somewhat as the JE98XL features twin speed controls. The lower, as always, is best for softer fruits and vegetables, while the higher setting is for tougher ingredients like carrots.

Although it’s a compact juicer, it has the same trademark Breville build quality and another generously sized three inch feed chute for whole produce.

It’s also one of the easiest juicers to clean, with a rounded design that discourage food from clogging up the sides. Many of the parts are dishwasher safe for when it does need a proper clean, and a scrubbing brush for the micro mesh filter is also included.

Pros

  • A super-fast juicer.
  • Very simple to take apart for cleaning.
  • An affordable midrange juicing machine.

Cons

  • Can leak a little with certain produce.
  • Creates quite a foamy juice.
  • Bigger than other juicers, so check the dimensions carefully.

Breville Juicer Buying Guide

Let’s start with the basics. There are essentially three different types of juicer you can buy: masticating juicers, centrifugal juicers and citrus juicers.

Centrifugal Juicer: A centrifugal juicer blitzes the ingredients at very high speed. They’re the most popular type of juicer, as they get the job done quickly and don’t cost as much money. No chopping or prep is required, you just add your ingredients and fire the juicer up. This sort of juicer is all about convenience, but they can be quite noisy.

Masticating Juicer: This sort of juicer is becoming increasingly popular in home kitchens. These machines work by slowly pressing juice from the pulp. You get more juice from each ingredient, and less oxygen is added to the juice as well. That means it’ll store in the refrigerator for longer. They typically cost more money, but you get more out of your food budget in the long run.

Citrus Press: These are only suitable for juicing citrus fruits, so think carefully before committing to this sort of kitchen appliance. These are simple juicers that work a bit like those glass lemon squeezing dishes you’ll have used. The citrus fruit is pushed down, then rotated to squeeze all the juice out. They’re simple machines, and are often available with a very affordable price tag.

In the next section of this buying guide, I’m going to look at some of the specific things you need to consider before settling on your final juicer.

Speed

If speed and convenience are your most important buying considerations, you’ll favor a centrifugal juicer.

You won’t get as much juice from the ingredients you buy, but you can mitigate this somewhat by letting the machine run for a little longer.

I would also recommend buying a centrifugal juicer that has at least two power settings – a low speed and a high speed.

The low speed is ideal for juicing soft fruits and vegetables, while a higher speed is needed for really tough stuff.

If the juicer only has one setting, it’ll likely operate at a high speed. In that case you run the risk of heating the juice too much.

Finally, whichever type of juicer you settle on, it will take some trial and error to get a feel for the appliance.

You’ll quickly learn how much you should feed it and how quickly. It’s a learning curve, but one I think you’ll get used to in pretty short order

Ease of Use

Most juicers are made of many removable parts. This is important so that the juicer can be cleaned thoroughly.

Look for products that have reviews praising the ease of assembly. If you can’t take the appliance apart and put it back together quickly and easily, there’s a risk you won’t get worthwhile use out of your investment.

Easy to Clean

When you’re squashing and squeezing fruits and vegetables, you’re going to make a mess!

Look for a juicer that promises dishwasher-safe components, but keep in mind you’ll likely have to manually clean certain elements.

If you don’t clean your juicer properly, it’ll get clogged up pretty quickly. You’ll also run the risk of yesterday’s ingredients making it into today’s juice.

Buying a juicer means accepting you’ll have to give it a little TLC. The easier it is to clean, the less hassle this will prove to be.

Noise

If it’s true that juicers are messy things, it’s also true that they make quite a bit of operating noise.

This is more noticeable with centrifugal juicers, as they operate at extremely high speeds.

If you’re living in a household where you need to be careful of noise, you should consider buying a masticating juicer.

It’s a slower way to juice your fruits and vegetables, but you won’t wake the baby in the process!

Leafy Greens

All juicers vary in their performance with certain ingredients, but leafy greens are often the trickiest overall.

Centrifugal juicers in particular tend to struggle with this sort of ingredient.

If you think you’re likely to use a lot of greens like spinach and kale, a masticating juicer will do a much better job of really grinding them down.

Otherwise you’ll notice a lot more grit in your drink. I find this really unpleasant as do many others.

Feed Chute

There’s a simple thing to think about here.

The bigger the feed chute on your juicer is, the less prep work you’ll have to do.

If you don’t like the sound of chopping and slicing your produce first, look for a generously-sized feed chute. Three inches or above is about the right size to look for as a minimum.

Build Quality & Materials

Breville’s reputation for making high quality appliances is rock solid, so I don’t think you’ll have anything to worry about here.

In general though, the more stainless steel an appliance has in its construction, the longer it’ll last.

It’s worth making a special mention on plastic materials here though.

Any plastic parts that come into contact with fresh produce should be advertised as BPA-free.

That’ll eliminate the risk of chemical contamination, which is the last thing you want from a health glass of freshly-squeezed juice!

Size & Weight

If you’re planning to put your juicer out on the counter-top, you’ll need to first of all check the dimensions of the appliance.

Next, check the power cable is long enough to reach the nearest power supply.

If you’re not going to keep your juicer out on the countertop permanently, make sure it’s light enough for you to carry back and forth from storage.

Warranty

Most Breville juicers come with a standard 1 year warranty. I think you can be confident that they’ll last a good deal longer than this with the right care and attention.

If you want more peace of mind, consider buying a warranty extension. Keep in mind though that these are often less expensive the earlier you buy them after purchasing.

Juicing Tips

Finally, here are some tips that I think will help you get more out of your Breville juicer. These appliances are designed to take a fair bit of punishment, but a little bit of careful prep will do much to preserve the lifespan of the machine.

  • If there’s a part of the fruit that you wouldn’t normally eat (ie the skin or the pit), remove it before feeding the produce into your Breville. The motor will have to work harder otherwise.
  • If you’re using ingredients like leafy greens, give them a good wash and trim off the steams before adding them to the juicer.
  • As a very general rule of thumb, use a low speed for soft fruits and the higher speed for tougher ingredients. Start with the soft stuff then work up to a higher speed as you add the final produce.

Frequently Asked Questions

To wrap my review up I wanted to answer some of the most common questions people have about Breville juicers.

Which Is The Best Breville Juicer To Buy?

As an all-round, high-performance juicer I recommend the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite.

It’s not just one of the best juicers from Breville, I also think it’s one of the best juicers on the market, period.

What’s The Best Brand Of Juicer To Buy?

If you’re really serious about your juicing, and want to invest in a slow masticating juicer, I recommend checking out the Omega range of appliances.

These juicers work more slowly than most, but you typically achieve a much higher yield from the produce you buy.

For the average home juicing enthusiast though, you’ll probably be served perfectly well by a Breville centrifugal juicer.
