Tired of paying through the nose for designer juices at your local juice bar? Our Breville 800JEXL review will show you why the Breville Elite juicer was created with you in mind. According to the manufacturer, it ended up being classified as one of their professional grade tools, since it offers “commercial performance, home kitchen convenience”. In fact, it has proven so fast, powerful and efficient that many juice bars are actually replacing their $3000 machines with a Breville 800JEXL juice fountain Elite. So what’s so special about this particular juice fountain?
Breville Elite Juicer Main Features
For a quick dose of healthy juice before heading for work, nothing beats the Breville 800 juicer. This super efficient juicer will extract juice so fast your main concern will be not to exceed the maximum marking on the 1.1qt (1L-34oz) juice jug. The heavy grade die-cast metal body of the Breville Juice Fountain Elite ensures durability, while its heavy-duty 1000-watt motor and dual speed control offer power and flexibility.
• Low speed (6,500 RPM) works better for soft fruit with high water content like pitless apricots, blueberries, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, seedless grapes, kiwi, mangoes and melons.
• At high speed (13,000 RPM, about three times faster than most other juicers), you will be able to get an 8oz glass of juice from whole apples in 5 seconds flat – good luck trying to keep up with that! This speed is recommended for hard fruit and vegetables such as apples, beet, Brussels sprouts, carrots, celery and fennel.
Its patented extra wide (3”) circular stainless feed tube is large enough that most fruit and vegetables will fit right in whole, including apples, carrots and cucumbers – no need for pre-cutting and certainly perfect for the morning rush.
The patented direct central feed system is designed to ensure maximum juice extraction.
The Nutri Disc blades have been reinforced with titanium to ensure that they retain their sharpness longer, as well as an Italian made stainless steel micromesh filter basket that spins out the pulp. Capable of extracting up to 30% more juice than other juice extractors, it leaves behind up to 40% more vitamins and minerals than other juicers – and very dry pulp.
You can pretty much juice to your heart’s content without having to keep emptying the extra large 3.2 qt (3 L) pulp container with integrated handle. And if you hate foam, the juice pitcher has a froth separator so you can enjoy your juice pure without topping…
Safe operation is ensured through a safety locking arm which prevents the juicer from operating unless the cover is locked into place. Overload protection will shut down the juicer in case of overheating.
All materials that come in contact with food are BPA-free and finally, the power cord can be stored securely under the base.
At 11″W x 17.125″D, its footprint on your countertop is limited, though you should check whether its 19.5″ height will fit under your top cabinets. But then why hide this beauty? The 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite may be highly efficient and superfast, but its stainless steel housing and motor body look nothing short of a sculpture that deserves the place of honor on your countertop.
Breville Juice Fountain Elite = High Efficiency
If your goal is to juice mostly fruit and hard vegetables, you won’t find any better, but let’s be clear: the Breville 800 is not made to juice grasses. That is what a masticating juicer does best. Because it uses centrifugal force, the juice yield from leafy green vegetables, herbs or sprouts will be low, unless you bundle them together or combine them with other fruit and vegs using low speed. For the highest extraction, a combination of starchy and wetter ingredients works best.
This little gem makes healthy daily juicing a true pleasure! “I make juice every morning and there is nothing so easy and fast to use.” – that’s easy to say if you are using a juicer which is a breeze to disassemble and clean up. All parts of the Breville 800JEXL juicer are dishwasher safe, as long as they are positioned on the top rack – except for the mesh filter basket/Nutri Disc.
And let’s face it: while juicing is vital to healthy nutrition, most people give up on juicing because cleaning their juicer is such a pain. If the Elite is not for you, you may want to take a look at other Breville juice fountains here.Share This!
