    Probably the Best Juicer I've Ever Known

    Posted
    PeterTheRabbit

    First, this juicer addresses a major problem glazed over by others. Often a juicing screen is easily put out of round, creating major vibration and reducing the efficiency of the juicer. The Breville Juice Fountain Plus's extraction screen is titanium reinforced; it is ultra strong. You can't put it out of round unless you hit it with a hammer. Incidentally, the extraction blade/screen from my juicer was PERFECTLY round, allowing for extremely smooth and vibration-free operation. There are also neat little rubber feet on the base to prevent any transfer of vibration (the negligible amount there is) to your counter. The motor is powerful! I can run 6 carrots at a time and they will be pulled down by gravity alone; I don't need to push. For extra tough produce, the motor may slow ever so slightly but not much. The 850 watts are more than enough to handle anything. Also, the juicer is very easy to clean, taking about 3 minutes (if you clean it right after use.) I just run the washable parts under warm water, no soap required. I've been though about 10 juicers and this is by far the best. Don't mess around with the cheaper juicers that are out there; bite the bullet and pay the extra money, you won't regret it. One more thing; I've always re-juiced pulp. No matter what juicer you get, there's still some juice left in the pulp; this is simply a function of centrifugal juicers, it's inescapable. I don't consider that fact a negative, in fact I gain a great deal of pleasure getting an extra cup or two of juice that would otherwise be thrown away. About that, with lesser juicers, re-juicing the pulp results in an unpleasant grainy texture from bits of pulp that get through....NOT so with the Breville! The texture of the juice is Perfectly smooth! That's a big deal, for me! Just some metrics: From 80 ounces of carrots I extracted 60 ounces of juice, from the first juicing, 8 ounces from 2 subsequent juicings. On average, from the first extraction, I get about 70% of the weight of the whole produce in juice weight. Firmer, CRISPER produce yields more juice. Do not use wilted produce. If I juice the pulp a couple more times, I can increase the yield to 80% of the whole produce weight. I usually re-juice the pulp until no more juice comes out. With the way produce prices are, I don't want to waste anything! The resulting pulp can be used to make stock. (Filter out the fiber when you're done, BTW.)

    I bought this juicer because I don’t really eat fruits or veggies and I was gaining weight.. I became so unhealthy so I want to get back on track. Well I started making my juices and I lost like 7 pounds within like the first 2 weeks. It’s fast and also easy to clean, when I finish using it, I’ll just rinse it and scrub the filter basket with the little brush and then I do clean it thoroughly once a week. I use the trick that everyone knows already with the leafy greens too and it works fine. My skin is looking healthier too because I suffer from I don’t know what maybe seborrheic dermatitis, tinea versicolor I don’t really know but it’s helping me with that. I also just bought the omega 8004 juicer so that I can be able to store my juice longer because with the breville you know you have to drink the juice the same day because the nutrients go away fast with Centrifugal juicers and with masticating juicers you can store the juice for up to 72 hours. If you don’t really have time or you just want to make juice faster and drink it right away or the same day..get this one it’s great, you will also get the benefits:) I love that I don’t have to cut everything into small pieces all the time, it’s a big time saver and it’s fun.

    OK I got this juicer just as soon as it came out. I read all the reviews of all the juicers I could find, and it was clear that Breville was the best way to go. And the raves were all about the previous model which had less power and only one speed. I love the juicer but I guess I was expecting a divine product by the review I read. I'll just say it is good quality without drooling all over about it... PRO'S: ~Great Power ~easy to clean, (do it sooner rather than let stuff dry on) ~smartly designed electrical plug ~motor cannot run if parts are not locked together (for safety reasons) ~product has few angles and many curves, which makes cleaning easier since pulp/juice can be hard to reach where there are corners ~two speeds: fast for power, slow for soft items ~it really can make 8oz juice in 5 seconds! ~huge food chute can accommodate an entire apple... you save time not needing to cut many things pre-juicing. CON'S: ~tomatoes - even on slow setting, the juicer doesn't efficiently grab all the juice of a tomato. perhaps do tomatoes first, then recycle the 'pulp' back through juicer to get more juice ~even though the plastic is durable and dark colored (to distract against discoloration) carrots do tend to stain it immediately. The con's are really quite trivial but I thought I should mention them since I was expecting pure perfection based on the reviews I read. I love the product and I would not swap it for anything. Besides, it is extremely affordable for what you get out of it!

    I have used this juicer for little over a month. I am new to the plant based lifestyle and admittedly, I was worried about spending the money on a gimmick, it's a nice addition to my already spotless kitchen. I've grown to really love this thing. It juices quickly and efficiently. It is a little loud, but, it sits on my granite counter top, so I guess that is to be expected. I researched juicers and found that this was the best option in this price range. I am currently doing the Reboot (fat sick and nearly dead) juice diet and it's working. 1-2 times a day, this thing juices kale, celery, whole cucumbers, whole granny smith apples, etc. I have never once had a problem. It's actually kind of fun...reminds me of the woodchipper scene from "Fargo". The only thing I do not enjoy is cleaning it. Every piece of this thing needs to be cleaned after every use, which is to be expected. It's not a big deal, but, I am very thorough and I take the plastic pieces apart, scrub them in the sink and then run them through a light wash on the top tray in the dish washer. Overall, I could not be more pleased. If you are not going to commit to the diet, do not waste your money. If you are definitely going to do this, then you will love this thing.

    We had been looking at juicers for a while before we decided to buy this one. We liked the features that this one has like the powerful motor and the separate pulp container. We have had it for two weeks now and are happy with our purchase. It seems to be a rugged machine that will last a while. That being said, we did look at other juicers that had longer warranty period where this one only has 1 year. Some of the reviews we read on this one claim that it leaks. We haven’t seen any leaking. The other problem people claimed was that the food came back out of the feed chute. The only time it has come closer (never came back out), was when we used baby carrots. We switched to regular carrots and have had no problem. We really like the suction cups on the bottom, they work well and the machine has never walked across the counter like other machines we have heard do. About the only con on this machine would be that it does not extract a lot of juice from leafy greens, but we knew that before we purchased it. There are slow juicers that are much better with leafy greens, but they also take longer to make the juice. We did make a video showing the unboxing, parts and demonstration of the juicer for anyone trying to make their decision. Just copy and paste this link... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVs81vcVlCs

    Almost 2-years going strong

    My wife and I bought this juicer nearly 2 years ago (Jan 2013). We were trying to be healthy and had been doing fruit and vegetable smoothies but those were getting just too much to gulp down. So we tried juicing and we loved it, a glass of juice is much easier to drink than a smoothie. After going through a few others juicers, my brother in law suggested we check out Breville's juicers. The cost was a little more than we budgeted but in the long run has more than paid for itself. The dual speed allows you to extract much more juice with a lot less pulp. We usually make enough juice to drink one in the morning for breakfast and take juice with us for lunch so the larger capacity comes in handy so we don't have to clear out the pulp mid way through. Easily makes 32 oz of juice. Yes, cleaning can be a pain but its definitely a must immediately after you finish juicing. Every few months we do a deep clean by soaking it in oxyclean over night to remove any buildup. 2 years running and it still looks and works like new.

    A powerful and well-built juicer

    This is easily a four or even five star purchase. After doing a great deal of research, I chose the Breville brand. Then I chose this model because of the price at Best Buy ($150). I've had it for over a month, so I certainly can't speak to how well this machine holds up over time. Perhaps i'll update this review in 6-12 months. All my research cautioned about the amount of clean up work necessary, but none prepared me for the reality of it. It is so much work that I find myself not juicing anywhere near as much as I'd like. (This is not a fault of the product however, and is probably the same for all juicers). My one complaint about the product (that resulted in a four star rating) is that it doesn't really extract juice well at all from leafy greens. My research lead me to understand that this category of vegetable is a tough one, and that only specialized devices can really do justice. Nevertheless, I was lead to expect some juice extraction. Alas, a head Black Kale is reduced to a mere drop or two. The manual is clear and helpful, though I found the recipe section a bit sparse. Still, I love the juice I make with this.

    I got this juicer for my first juicing experience because I have a great Breville convection toaster oven. I've been very pleased. The instructions were easy to follow. The juicer leaves very dry pulp. I feel great drinking the juice I make, full of dark, leafy greens, healthy veggies, ginger root, and a couple different fruits. The only complaint is some of the veggies, like broccoli, get stuck and gum up the system. The clear cover makes it easy to see where the problem is. If the item is not juiced all the way, I just put it back through the chute. I line the pulp container with a plastic produce bag to keep clean up easy. I do not put the food pusher or the blade part through the dishwasher, washing those by hand using the brush, but the clear plastic pieces go in and come out nicely.

    Great juicer at a really reasonable price

    I have had this juicer for a few months now, and when I first got it, I did a week-long juice fast with it. So I was using it almost constantly from the day I bought it. I still juice almost daily, and I can honestly say that this juicer can handle just about anything. I juice everything from kale to melons to whole beets and apples, and it is incredible to see how quickly and efficiently it handles everything I throw its way. The pulp usually seems to be relatively dry, which means that I am getting most of the juice out of my veggies. Overall I am extremely satisfied with this product and have not had any issues with it yet. Its easy to take apart and clean, and it doesn't take up too much counter space. This is easily one of the best investments that I have made. If you are thinking about getting a juicer, I highly recommend this one for the price, durability, longevity and efficiency with which it juices, especially if you are like me and are planning on juicing often.

    I have NEVER juiced before but I wanted to make sure I was getting the best product for my money. After reading countless reviews just as you are right know, they say the toughest part of juicing is the clean up. There is aways going to be a clean up process but this model makes it very easy. The pulp doesn't get into places that are difficult to clean. When you rinse it with water before you wash it the pulp is gone. It contains well and if you use a bag inside of the trash shoot you just saved yourself time. This isn't a 1,000 juicer so you can't just throw the products you want to juicer and push it down fast like on tv. To get the most out of your juicer just take your time and push it a little slower. After all fruits and veggies aren't cheap so you might as we take your time and get more bang for your buck. Best juicers for beginners!!! P.S. Im using my iPhone so do be hard on my spelling and punctuation

    I have been interested in juicing for quite some time and was always put off at the price of juicers with quality ratings. After a short amount of research I came across this machine which had all of the specifications that several sources had recommended, and it was priced so very nicely. We drove down to our local Best Buy, bought the machine, stopped at the super market and bought a gang of fresh fruits/veggies, then straight home to do a bit of juicing. All I have to say about the proceeding is WOW! I immediately started to feel the difference between drinking freshly extracted juice and all other traditional options. The machine is very powerful. very well designed, but by nature it can be a pain to clean as the shredding surface and mesh extraction screen are precision cut which leads to precision cleaning. The manufacturer provides a scrub brush which is very effective at clearing pulp from the all the nooks. I just found myself dealing with some guilt over not taking time to clean my equipment immediately after use. Other wise, I couldn't be happier.

    Lots of Pulp in the drain.

    It gives a lot of pulp. Some leafy greens come out as they are. Works well with Apples/Celery/Carrots and other root types hard veggies. Overall juice is good if you could find a use for your pulp. There is a lot of research online on slow vs fast juicing. I did not have that much patience. Any juicer will come with a lot of cleanup for sure. Slow Juicers will have extra work of chopping the veggies into smaller pieces. Also the pic on this juicer shows like u could drop a whole apple. Wrong. Very small apple (lemon size ones) might pass thru, But an average size or med size apple will get stuck in the chute. You will certainly need to cut them to larger pieces before you juice. Carrots/celery no problem. 3-4 at a time could be dropped. Not sure how that guy used this juicer & travels cross country on road in the "Fat Sick & nearly Dead" documentary. Practically you may be able to go without washing your juicer for two times in a single day but you definitely need to wash those million parts apart. The brush they gave is real nice for cleaning the corners.

    Well, I saw this on Fat Sick and Dead, and was interested enough to go to BestBuy to see it, and it was really good made thing. Basically when you think of this kind of juicer, you imagine how everything is leaking, everything is all over the place basically. This is a no bs juicer, I am even worried.. instead of eating fruits, we just put it in juicer and drink it, there is NO JUICE in garbage, and if fruit is cut enough (small) you don't even put pressure into it, it takes it much less than a second to make juice out of it. But the good thing of having such juicer is that you can throw lot of "green" stuff there which you wouldn't eat and it enriches the juice with flavor and useful stuff.. Aslo this comes with good recipe book with soups and etc.. Also the pitcher is really good one, it's easy to pour with it so that only the pure juice comes out.

    My husband and I need to lose weight and eat healthier so we decided to try out juicing after our best friends have lost weight by either juicing exclusively or just once a day for breakfast. We tried out a fruit juice that they made us one night months ago and it was delicious. This machine is amazing, the plup is almost dry after all the juice is extracted, it is quick and fairly quiet. I dont have to press so hard on the fruit for the blades to catch and juice, for example, an apple or pinapple. The manual that is provided tells you what speed you should juice at and if you should peel before putting it in the tube. Apples you dont, cucumbers and oranges you do. I read a lot of reviews of other juicers that are almost as expensive and they dont do nearly as good of a job as this, after going to 4 stores I finally found it and it was so worth it!

    I have been using this juicer for a couple of months now and love it! It is so fast and easy to use. Cleanup is pretty easy too. Love the pitcher that holds back the foam when you pour! I juice about 1-2 times a week, so time will tell if it holds up and continues to do the job as well. But so far so good. I also have a Huron masticating juicer that I really liked in the beginning, since it made juice with so little waste...But is a bit slower and over time seems to not to separate as well. The juice is highly fibrous even when using the finer strainer. I started needing to strain the juice after juicing more and more. But the huron is more versatile. It can make almond milk and also wheat grass which the Breville doesn't. But for quick and easy juicing on a daily basis, the Breville is great!

    I watched Joe Cross's documentary Fat Sick and Nearly dead an i immediately knew that i need a juicer. But which juicer was hard to decide. My requirements were - easy to clean - easy to juice - does not leave the veggies pulp wet after juicing. I usually do my online research before buying stuffs. And this Juicer caught my eye. It had great review and met all my needs. The juicer is really easy to assemble, and juices neatly. Its wide chute is great for vegies as well as fruits. You can see the plup is dry after it juices out. Waste bucket is in side so, its very convenient to dis assemble and clean the stuff. Over all great juices. I am very happy with the buy. Plus best buy's price match challenge is awesome. You are guaranteed to get the juicer in the best price. By the way if you haven't see the documentary check this out http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/

    Decent Juicer, Could do Better

    Liked my juicer when I first got it, had great quality juice out of it. Does an excellent job juicing and separating out the pulp. Cons? I definitely did not like that it started after about 2 months leaking (spraying out the plastic sides where the chute connects to the juicing area) and I did not like that I couldn't get inside and clean some of the areas even with the brush. It was like pulp was mashed into the suction/closure area (hard to describe, but it just didn't work right). I thought it would be fine, and I did go back and get a second juicer, and that one squirted juice after a week of use. Don't know if it was just me and how much I was juicing, but I'll probably go with a different juicer in the future. If you're someone who juices conservatively, I would probably recommend it, if you're someone who is a hardcore juicier, do some more research.

    We did quite a bit of research before buying a juicer and felt the Breville JE98XL would meet our needs. This model is very sturdy and comes with two speeds. It is not that loud as many folks have mentioned in their reviews. The booklet that comes along has great recipes and suggestions. The cleanup is very easy. One thing I do recommend is using one of your produce bags to line it just to make the clean up easier. So far we have juiced whole carrots, beets, apples, celery, peeled citrus, kale, cucumber and ginger and so far, it's holding very well. At first, I thought this investment I have made is a bit pricier but it's worth every penny. Why not do it right the first time! You get what you pay for. Definitely recommend this product to everyone.

    I bought this model on the recommendation of a friend and someone who runs a juice shop. My friend used hers constantly and said how much she loved it. The owner of the juice shop told me it was a great juicer for my first one. Not overpriced and durable. The pitcher holds a quart which is a good amount for one person. As for juicing, it's wonderful. Smaller apples don't need to be cut up and the chute is large enough to everything except extra long celery and carrots. My only knock is cleaning everything. It's easy to clean, but there are some sharp edges on the top that I always seem to catch my hand on. More of a nuisance than anything else. I haven't gone full on juicing yet, but I used it every day for the first two weeks to juice about a quart and have had no issues. If you're thinking of getting into juicing, this is the perfect first one to get.

    I like this Breville Juice Fountain Plus and am glad that I decided to get the larger one. It really is a nice addition since I've gone completely raw. I use it daily, sometimes more than once a day. My only complaint is that the inside of the Pulp Container is being stained orange by the carrots that I'm juicing and the stains won't come out. Other than that, I am very pleased with my Juice Fountain Plus.
