Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor
The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor could easily be seen as the cream of the crop – the Rolls Royce of juicers. Its performance is top notch with styling to match. This is an appliance that you’ll be very happy to display for all to see.

Size and Design

The Breville’s attractive stainless steel body will take up 17 x 11 inches of your worktop and weighs in at around 9 pounds. Its design is clean and modern and everything about it exudes its high tech credentials. An intelligent chip varies the motor power when it’s under load to maintain consistent speed. Now that’s impressive!

The circular feed tube is a useful 3 inches in diameter allowing whole fruit and vegetables to be fed directly into the machine instead of having to cut them up first so large volumes of juice can be produced quickly.

Your fruit and veg ingredients feed directly onto a titanium coated cutting disk and are quickly dealt with by 115 dual-action knives.

A large capacity (34oz) juicing pitcher is supplied as part of the pack. It has a pouring spout and its lid skims the foam from the juice as you pour so what you’ll taste from your glass will be pure juice.

The whole thing can be be quickly disassembled for easy cleaning.

Performance and Noise

This Breville 800 JEXL is a centrifugal juicer. That all sounds all very technical but just means that it spins at high speed.

Driven by a powerful 1000 watt motor it can be set to run at two speeds depending on what you’re juicing.  High speed is a whopping 13,000 rpm used for harder produce and 6,500 rpm for soft fruit.

That high speed is probably 3 times the speed of many other juicers so it’s going to be noisier than others too. But the power of the Breville means that it gets to work quickly making your juicing life a whole lot easier.

All the pulp is filtered out by a fine, stainless steel mesh and before you know it you’ve switched the machine off and you’re savoring that delicious fresh juice. As a guide, it takes about five seconds to run up a standard 8 oz glass of apple juice.

The speed of the machine and it’s efficient filter mean that the juice is clear and pulp-free.

Short work can be made of soft fruit and veg like tomatoes and bananas on the quiet, low speed setting.

Cleaning Up

There are no fiddly screws to be dealt with when disassembling the machine. Flip open the clip and the whole thing opens up. There are just four parts to be washed out or popped into the dishwasher. Being stainless steel, staining doesn’t present a problem. Clean up – job done.

A word to the wise. Do the wash out straight after juicing before juices begin to dry off. That goes for ANY juicer.

Volume and Taste

Just how much juice the Breville 800JEXL can extract depends on the fruit and vegetables being juiced however, you can be pretty sure that the power of this machine will produce the maximum volume possible.

It’s a safe bet that you’ll use less fruit to produce the same amount of juice compared with many juicers you may have used in the past. And there’s no need for brute strength to force-feed your ingredients either. Even fibrous items like celery aren’t going to stick in the feed tube.

Some say that high speed spinning has a tendency to oxidize the juice but users claim to be quite happy with their results. They detected none of that ‘tinnie’ taste in the flavor.

The juicer works so quickly and efficiently that the juice will be fresher than with slower process juicers.

Cost

As always, you get what you pay for and the Breville 800 is the juicer that juice enthusiasts seem to graduate to. If you’re a regular juice fanatic then this machine is certainly worth the investment.

Overall Summary

This Amazon comment by cdesai82 is typical.

Design and Dimensions: Clean and modern design which would enhance any kitchen but it might be a bit too large to be accommodated in a small apartment style kitchen.

Performance and Noise: Fast! It’s quick and easy to load whole fruit and vegetables through the 3 inch feed tube and the cutting disk and knives makes short work of juicing them up.

Yup – it’s louder than many other juicers but it is a powerful machine that makes short work of juicing fruit and veg.

Cleaning: Simple. Clip open and all the disassembled parts can be put in the dishwasher.

Volume and Taste: Probably produces a greater volume than most juicers and the taste is clean and fresh.

Cost: Yes – it’s expensive. But if you are a fresh juice aficionado it’s worth the expense.
