Would you rather have a juicer that works at 95%, but you never use? Or a juicer that works at 90% and that you use all the time? Breville 800JEXL is the Juicer You Need to HAVE! [taq_review] Today at Juiceful we have the Breville 800JEXL, and boy do we have nice things to say about this baby!  Before we purchased the Breville 800JEXL,  we spent quite a bit of time researching and reading the reviews. Unfortunately  not a lot of sites were very comprehensive, so we decided to make this one. The most attractive claims we found for this juicer was a fast juicing speed, relatively easy cleanup, and the wide-mouth opening. The biggest concern we have with this juicer is the limited warranty; 1 to 3 years, compared to other juicers in its class, which has a much higher as high as a 15 year warranty period.we called Breville to find out the reason on why, they  indicated concerns on the  lifetime of the motor, but this is the elite model, which has a more powerful motor. Well, the juicer arrived and I noticed it was very simple to put together. The instructions were clearly written and the parts are dishwasher safe. So after a quick run in the dishwasher, We set out to try and new juicer! -Size: It's big -- really big. It takes up the majority of my NYC kitchen counter-space, but after using it once, I didn't mind its size. Another big plus is the 3" feed tube. -Construction: It's built solid, and is pretty hefty...this isn't an appliance, it's a machine. -Effectiveness: It DEVOURS everything I put into it. Our apples were large, so we had to cut them up into 4 piece despite the 3" opening.  The apples fed into the juicer easily and very rapidly.  Generally you have to alternate carrots with soft fruits to avoid stalling the screw conveying action; there was no such need with the Juice Fountain.

With other juicers, celery strings wrap around the end of the screws and plug the end plug. The cutting/centrifugal juicing mechanism of the Juice Fountain eliminates such issues completely. The celery fed in very easily and produced plenty of juice. In the Juice Fountain, celery of all sizes, including tips and leaves, fed in easily. For ease of handling fibrous vegetables or long, flexible vegetables, I give the Juice Fountain an A+. Already by this time I knew the Juice Fountain really does make juice fast! I couldn't wait to try the carrots. We put them in whole (minus the cut off tops) and for smaller ones, in bunches of 2 or 3. They just zipped into the juicer!

The instruction manual says that juice yield is higher if you feed them slowly, so we didn’t push the limits of feed speed. Furthermore, there was almost no force required to push the carrots in, a welcome change from the usual problems have hard veggies. What a delight this was! For speed of juicing, we give the Juice Fountain an A+,For ease of feeding, we give the Juice Fountain an A+.

Some Areas I feel that are worth mentioning,

  • So far I have experimented with tomatoes, spinach, kale, watermelon, carrots, celery, cucumbers, strawberries, oranges, apples, and even papayas! In most cases the yield is very good, but for leafy greens and berries I would NOT use this juicer. For those your going to want a Masticating Juicer.
  • It’s a big Juicer, It’s efficient, But Ugly…
  • Store prices might be higher than Amazon.com So we Suggest You buy From there
