The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite has been the leader in radically changing the way the world is juicing. It was featured on the very popular movie Fat Sick & Nearly Dead and has since been helping people get healthier. It is an awesome choice for a juicer. I even read somewhere that it could easily be called the “Rolls Royce of Juicers.” It is a very sleek looking machine, maybe even one you’ll want to put on display on your kitchen countertop. 😉
Not only is it a great looking machine, it gets 5 star reviews on its cutting edge performance.
I’m going to just break the details down for you here.
Size and Design
The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor is a very modern, sleek juicing machine weighing about nine pounds in a 17x11x20 inch stainless steel body. And talking about being high-tech! It has a “smart chip” that senses how much power is needed! It has a large feeding tube with a 3 inch diameter which minimizes the need for a lot of chopping and prepping before juicing.
Its patented design and titanium-plated cutting disk allows you to juice a significant amount of fruits and vegetables quickly and efficiently.
A handy dandy 34-ounce juice pitcher comes with the Breville Juicer. It has a spout opening which means no more overspray.
The lid of the pitcher conveniently separates froth from juice so you’ll get the true taste of the fruits and veggies. If you don’t particularly enjoy having a lot of pulp in your juice, you can simply adjust the container which allows for more or less of the pulp.
It’s smartly designed to be quick and easy to disassemble for cleaning.
Remember those centrifugal juicers we talked about? Well, the Breville is one of those powerful centrifugal juicers. So, it’s really fast. So fast, that noise shouldn’t be an issue.
Just turn it on and you’ll be enjoying your juice in a matter of seconds.
Why is it so fast? The snug fit of its parts, the 115 dual action knives, the titanium-plated cutting disk, plus having the option to choose high (13,000 RPM) or low (6,500 RPM) power (according to what’s best for the type of food you are juicing) make quick work of any fruit and vegetable you choose.
It’s an extremely efficient and powerful machine able to prepare your fresh tasting, delicious juice in an instant. All the reviews I’ve read say that what noise it does have is not a problem at all because of it’s excellent high quality.
The Breville juicer is brilliantly designed to be sturdy and never out of balance. It is a step above some other juicers I’ve reviewed. A powerful high rpm motor and its ejection style booster is what ensures that it keeps it balance. No excess noise. No major mess cleanups like other juicers.
This Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor Breville design comes with 1000-watts, 1 1/3 horsepower and two speeds – high at an RPM 13,000 and low at 6,500 rpm to get as much juice as possible out of any fruits and vegetables you prefer.
High speed on the Breville is about three times as fast as most other juicers, instantly gathering the pulp in the filter that’s small mesh and made of stainless steel. Five seconds is all the time it takes to make a standard glass of juice (approximately 8-oz) from hard fruits such as apple.
Soft fruits and veggies such as tomatoes, leafy greens and bananas can instantly whip out a glass of juice on the extremely quiet, low-speed setting.
There are no screws to interfere with taking apart this juicer for cleanup. All parts are dishwasher safe and stainless steel so no worries about stains like you can have with other plastic juicers.
One of the main complaints about juicers is that the wire-mesh screens of the pulp catchers tend to plug up and are difficult to clean. The Breville 800 juicer is so efficient that the juice rarely has to be strained. Almost every ounce of the fruits and vegetables are converted into juice and pulp is almost non-existent due to its 40,000 filtering pores in its stainless steel micro-mesh filter.
No more having to feed the pulp through for a second time just to get all the juice out. In some juicers, the dryness of the pulp depends on how tight you make the end plug. If the plug is screwed in tightly, you’ll have dry pulp, but not without consequences! The juicer will feed poorly and you might experience backup in the feeder chute and have to feed the fruit or vegetables through a second time.
This juicer efficiently produces dry pulp, but you won’t have to bother with plug settings or feeding the pulp through a second time! All these features make the cleanup of this juicer easy and efficient. This is a really important feature as cleanup in most juicers is complex and just plain dreadful.
Volume and Taste
How much can be squeezed out of the Breville depends on the type of fruit or vegetable you’re feeding it. But, rest assured that you’ll get the maximum volume of extracted juice when using this very powerful machine.
You’ll find that this “Elite” juicer uses much less fruit to produce the amount of juice than other juicers you’ve used in the past. And, there’s no more using brute strength to push the fruits and vegetables through the feeder. Even celery, as fibrous as it is, feeds through with ease.
Some juices tend to taste “oxidized” when put through a juicing process, but users of this juicer claim that the juice had none of that metallic taste and rated the flavors optimal.
Another great feature is the juice 1.1 quart juice container that seperates the foam (froth) from the juice. The Breville juicer converts fruits and vegetables to juice in such a short amount of time that you’ll enjoy a fresher taste than with juicers that require minutes to process.
This is the juicer that juice gurus and enthusiasts “graduate” to when they want ease, optimal taste, and freshness of juicing fruits and vegetables. The cost of the machine is certainly worth the investment if you love your juice and plan to use it regularly. It will save you lots of time and frustration in many ways.
