Let’s face it, when it comes to juicers, there are a lot of different options. If you look strictly at cost, you can find a blender or a juicer for under $100 that will probably handle the basics. It will take some fruit and vegetables, provided you have chopped them into small pieces, and eventually make a glass of juice. The problem with most of the lower cost juicers is that they are under powered and they under perform. This doesn’t mean that a low price juicer can’t work for you. Usually, it will do the job well if you don’t ask too much from it.
Serious Juicing Needs A Serious Juicer
If you plan on following a juice diet, and if you plan on staying with the diet plan, you will probably be better served by a more powerful juice machine. That’s why we recommend the Breville Juice Fountain Juicer (Model 800JEXL) for anyone who does some serious juicing.
The first thing you will notice about the Breville Juicer is that it is solid. Solidly designed and solidly built. The next thing you will notice is that it is designed for serious juicing. First off, the motor is huge. At 1000 watts, this motor can handle whole fruits and vegetables easily. This can save a lot of time, you don’t have to worry about chopping up every piece of fruit or every vegetable that you want to use. Under powered motors can burn out if the ingredient that they are grinding is too dense or solid. A 1000 watt motor, with 2 distinct speed settings, can go through just about any fruit or veggie.
Next, take a good look at the food chute. It is 3″ wide, meaning that you can add a whole apple easily. While this will make the juicer work a bit harder, at 13000 rpm, the motor can handle this job and the result is a delicious juice.
Everything You Need To Make Outstanding Juice
The very sturdy base unit is made from stainless steel and is easy to clean. The blades are titanium coated steel and the filter is a titanium mesh. Many lower priced juicers have mesh filters that are plastic. They can become brittle and break after repeated uses.
Included in this set is a 1.1 quart juice jar with a handle and pour spout. The pulp container holds up to 3.2 quarts of pulp and both the juice jar and the pulp container are dishwasher safe, making clean up very easy. The filter and the puree disc also go into the dishwasher, making for a very quick and easy clean up after you are done juicing.
Price Is A Factor
This Breville juicer is more expensive than most models on the market. It is usually found for around $300, although they do go on sale occasionally. You do get a lot for the price. If you are looking for a heavy duty juice machine that can handle any type of fruit or vegetable, this is probably the unit for you. It will last longer, has a much more powerful motor then most juicers and is designed for serious juicing. If you can afford it, this is an outstanding juicer.
