Do you get the recommended five portions of fresh fruit and vegetables each day?
If not, you’re not alone. We all know we should eat as much fresh produce as possible, and we’ll all aware of the many health benefits of fruit and veg, but sometimes life gets in the way.
Now, juicing allows you to get the nutrients from a wide variety of fruits and veggies even if you’re not ready to start eating them every day.
For anyone new to juicing and not knowing where to start, you’ve come to the right place. While we’ll be including something for everyone on Oh Juice, our focus is very firmly on beginners, so we’re here to guide you every step of the way.
And if you’re new to juicing, Breville makes a great starting point, whether you want an entry-level juicer to see if you like the reality of juicing, or you want an upscale press to last for years.
Breville has been in business since 1932 so you’re buying into a brand you can trust. Founded by Australians Harry Norville and Bill O’Brien – they used letter from each of their names for Breville – the company initially produced radios.
Over the years, Breville has branched out within the consumer appliance industry and steadily crafted a reputation for producing well-built and tech-driven gear at affordable prices.
Today, Breville sells appliances from toasters and espresso machines to blenders and juicers in 70 countries worldwide.
The Breville line of juicers all feature heavy-grade components. Some of the cheaper models are made from plastic, but this is entirely BPA-free. The more rugged and pricey models in the line are made from stainless steel. Materials are all dishwasher-friendly, too.
Lifespan is impressive. If you look after your Breville juicer, you can expect it to last 5 years without any real issues developing. This makes even the costlier models in the line great overall value.
Another key selling point of Breville juicers is the fact they’re remarkably easy to use. Many people arrive at juicing with no idea what to do, and no desire to tackle a steep learning curve. Whatever the model, Breville juicers are a cinch to use even for complete beginners.
If you’re still undecided and wondering why you should choose Breville over other juicer brands, the performance of these juicers is worth a mention. All motors supply ample power without ever overworking the machine. You can expect glitch-free juicing.
The core offering is Breville’s Juice Fountain line. These models are all centrifugal force juicers, so they use extremely rapidly rotating blades to chop and process your fruit and veg as opposed to the much slower process involved with masticating juicers.
The Big Squeeze line comes with cold press technology that helps you to maintain the full nutritional profile of your fruits and vegetables while also getting the optimum texture in your juice.
For anyone who only uses citrus fruit for juicing, Breville also offers some citrus presses. These units are typically cheaper – although there is one upscale variant – and they are also much more limited in scope. If you’re absolutely certain you’ll be juicing nothing but oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit, give some thought to getting back to basics with a press.
Breville presses also make use of the same drip-stop system so you’ll get the most user-friendly juicing environment with practically no chance of spillage – what’s not to love?
OK, we’ll get right down to business now with our snapshot reviews of all the leading juicers in the Breville line.
See which of these, if any, makes the right fit for you.
The 8 Best Breville Juicers
1. Our #1 Pick: Breville 800JEXL Fountain Elite Centrifugal Juicer
Our overall favorite juicer from the broad Breville line is a centrifugal finished in brushed steel. The unit makes a real statement on the kitchen counter, but is it a case of form over function?
Absolutely not! Under the hood, there’s a 1000-watt motor equipped with dual speeds. You can flick between 6,500 RPM and 13,500 RPM depending on what you intend to blitz. This extra element of control is welcome.
The chassis is built to last and made from die cast steel while the cutting disc is titanium-plated for extra bite and increased lifespan.
If you’re looking to juice a wide variety of fruit and veggies, you’ll appreciate the 3-inch circular feed tube. This is so roomy that you can easily feed in whole fruits and veg, shaving off a great deal of prep time when you’re juicing.
Capacity is generous at 1.1 quarts in the juice jug and 3.2 quarts in the pulp container.
A quick note: the manufacturer recommends that you don’t use this juicer for more than 60 seconds in one unbroken spell. You should then let your machine rest for a minute before restarting. Ignore this and the unit could develop problems.
When you’re finished with your juicing, the stainless steel filter bow, puree disc, juice jug and cover can all be placed in the dishwasher so you won’t be faced with any messy clean-up.
If you want controlled power, variable speed, and a commercial-grade juicer ideal for use in the home kitchen, the Elite model of the Juice Fountain line from Breville makes a smart choice. It’s easy to use, just as simple to clean, and gives you scope to juice in a time-effective manner, perfect if you’re always crunched for time.
2. Runner-Up: Breville JE98XL Fountain Plus Centrifugal Juicer
If you’re just starting out on your juicing journey and you’re looking for a cheaper model than the upscale gem we kicked off with, we’d suggest the Fountain Plus. What do you get for your money, then?
Well, you need to make some concessions with any cheaper product and this juicer is no exception. Rather than brushed steel like the Elite, you get a chassis made from high-grade polymer. You’ll benefit from the same steel micromesh filter as the Elite boasts, and you’ll get a cutting disc made from stainless steel, too.
The dual-motor is less powerful at 850 watts, but still more than fit for purpose. Stick with low speeds of 6,500 RPM when you’re pulping softer fruits then pick up the pace to 12,000 RPM when you need to deal with harder fruits and veg.
The classic 3” feeding tube present on Breville juicers appears here, too. You get the freedom to pop in whole apples or veggies without spending hours chained to the chopping board. Who said juicing had to be time-intensive?
There’s a direct central feeding system in place that maximizes extraction and allows you to get all those precious nutrients from your produce.
A safety locking arm is a neat touch if you have kids in the house. Overload protection is another welcome safety feature baked in.
The juice jug has a 34oz capacity so you’ll have enough for the whole family with nobody left out.
Speed is also uppermost and you can enjoy your juice in seconds thanks to the efficient operation of this unit and the minimized prep time thanks to that wide feeding tube.
3. Best Budget: Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain
At the lower end of the Breville line in terms of price and size, the Compact Juice Fountain is a deceptively hard-hitting unit.
The 700-watt motor is more than capable of powering this small, squat appliance. Overall dimensions are 7.4 x 10.4 x 12.7 inches and the juicer weighs just under 10 pounds giving you a space-saving solution for apartments or smaller kitchens.
Despite benefiting from this scaled-down footprint, the juicer manages to deliver most of the functionality of its bigger brothers. A neat trick is built in to make even smarter use of available space with the pulp being trapped and conserved in the front of the unit.
As with all Breville juicers, you can disassemble this after use and pop the components safely in the dishwasher so you won’t be scrubbing and scouring when you could be relaxing with your juice or smoothie. You get a scrubbing brush thrown in as well. This will help you to keep all nooks and crannies of your juicer clean so no debris turns into mold and bacteria.
The feeding tube is substantial and measures fully 3 inches across. This provides ample space for whole fruits and veggies. Let the machine do the work rather than spending time tediously chopping up your produce.
An efficient stainless steel cutting disc is complemented by a micromesh filter, also stainless steel. You’ll get up to 30% more juice and up to 40% more nutrients as a result of this efficiency.
As crowning glory, Breville guaranteed this juicer for 1 year giving you complete confidence at the point of purchase.
4. Breville BJE430SIL Juice Fountain Cold Centrifugal Juicer
The Breville BJE430SIL features cold spin technology. This allows the juice inside to make its way up and through the cutting disc so temperature increase when juicing is minimized.
Although this model looks at a glance like stainless steel, it’s finished in plastic. As with all Breville juicers, the plastic is all free of BPA so you can juice with a clear conscience.
The 850-watt motor gives you a choice of 2 speeds. When you’re working with softer fruits and vegetables, the disc rotates at 6,500 RPM. If you need more speed to deal with harder produce, this unit ratchets up to 13,000 RPM at full clip.
Another shared characteristic with the rest of the juicers in the Breville line is the oversized feeding tube. This is 3 inches wide meaning you can feed whole fruits and veggies in without needing to chop them down.
The Nutria Disc and the proprietary extraction system on this juicer means you’ll get even more goodness than ever extracted from your produce. With very little heat transfer, you’ll protect the enzymes and also help to optimize absorption of the nutrients within. All in all, you get a tech-based approach to juicing that lets you steal an unfair advantage.
The design of the Seal and Store juice jug lets you store any leftover juice for up to 3 days in the fridge. This is ideal if you have a hectic lifestyle but always want some fresh juice on hand.
When you’ve finished juicing, pour the contents straight into your glass with no spillage thanks to the intelligently-designed spout.
5. Breville BJE830BSS Centrifugal XL Juicer
Next up is another centrifugal force juicer with Breville’s cold spin technology doing its part to minimize temperature transfer and to give you all the nutrients from your fruit and veg.
The jumbo 70oz capacity means you get enough juice for a large family. The juice nozzle makes it super-simple to pour it directly into a glass, and you can also keep the leftovers in the refrigerator.
The 1200-watt powerplant allows you to slice through harder fruits and vegetables without too much resistance.
If you dislike the idea of juicing because of the sound it creates, this appliance lets you dial back to a quiet setting with dramatically reduced noise.
Although this Breville juicer is pretty pricey, we’d argue it represents superb overall value. The rugged stainless steel build should return years of faithful service and all components are precision-engineered with a long lifespan in mind.
At 3.5 inches across, the feeding tube lets you throw in large hunks of fruits and veg, even whole apples, so you won’t waste too much time in the kitchen preparing for your juices.
With this model in particular, a handful of customers reported receiving damaged packages so check the contents of your delivery closely. Customer care is normally reasonable.
This juicer only runs on 110/120 volts, so make sure your electric system supports this or you’ll need a transformer.
If you’re looking for a cheaper juicer, this model is absolutely not for you. If, on the other hand, you don’t mind paying for appliances that function impressively and stay the distance, we can’t recommend the XL strongly enough.
6. Breville BCP600SIL Citrus Press Motorized Juicer
Have you considered buying a dedicated citrus press? If so, the BCP600SIL is an entry-level motorized model that’s well worth popping on your shortlist.
First, a quick disclaimer. If you opt for a citrus press, you won’t get anywhere near the flexibility afforded by an all-purpose juicer. Depending on your intended usage, this might not be a concern, and in this case, citrus presses are a cost-effective solution. If you’re in any doubt, we would recommend going for a juicer instead.
Still fancy the citrus press? Well, you get ease of use that’s perfect if you’re just starting out juicing.
You get a single cone that’s compatible with all types of citrus fruit. Throw in your lemon, lime, orange, or grapefruit, pull down on the domed grip then let the patented fins do their work and extract all the juice from your fruits.
The plastic build is free of BPA and also designed to be shatterproof so you should get a faithful juicing ally for years to come if you keep this press cleaned and maintained.
All components are safe to pop in the dishwasher saving you from any tasky clean-up duty.
When you’re finished juicing, just flip up the spout to cut down on any dripping.
Again, if you feel there’s any chance you might to expand beyond citrus fruits and you like the idea of experimenting, this is not the press for you. For anyone committed to citrus fruit, on the other hand, this limitation is no restriction at all and the BCP600SIL makes a great choice and ensures you’ll always have fresh orange juice for breakfast.
7. Breville 800CPXL Citrus Press Pro
As we edge to the end of our search for the best Breville juicers, we’ve got another specialized citrus press for you in the form of the 800CPXL.
Although this model is much cheaper than the citrus press above, it’s currently available at a discount, so act quickly and you could steal yourself a bargain for the holidays.
Where the previous model is finished in plastic, the Citrus Press Pro comes in stainless steel so it’s capable of withstanding some serious punishment.
The die cast steel cone is designed to cope with all sizes of citrus fruits from small limes through to bulkier grapefruit. The cone is 4-sided so you’ll get the most juice out of whatever produce you’re introducing. A pair of filters helps you to achieve variable pulp control.
The arm comes triple-hinged so there is ample downward pressure right throughout the process of juicing. There’s a safety switch that prevents the cone from spinning until you’ve lowered the arm and applied sufficient downward pressure.
This juicer comes with a motor that’s more than powerful enough for your needs without kicking up too much of a racket. In fact, it runs almost whisper-quiet so juice away without disturbing the rest of the family or your neighbors.
Measuring 11 x 9 x 18 inches, this is a reasonably substantial appliance so make sure you have the space to accommodate.
Dishwasher-friendly components make this a cinch to clean up after when you’re done juicing and gives you just one more reason to buy this Breville.
8. Breville BJS700SIL Big Squeeze Slow Juicer
If you understand the benefits of juicing slowly, you’ll love Breville’s range-topping BJS700SIL, also known as the Big Squeeze Slow Juicer. The name of this unit nails its colors firmly to the mast, so how slow does it go?
The motor is rated at 240 watts and it runs very quietly by the standards of blenders due to its low-impact design.
By utilizing a low-speed extraction method, and with very little heat transfer taking place, you get everything you need to extract all that goodness from any fruits and veg you throw in this Breville.
The smart cap onboard lets you create mixed juices with ease. Browse out site for more ideas about which fruits and veggies work well when juiced in combination. Don’t be afraid to experiment, and remember that imagination is your only limitation.
The stainless steel mesh filter allows you to get the most out of the contents of your juicer without straining yourself.
The forward and reverse motion at your disposal comes in handy if you feel the juicer starting to clog up.
Quick rinse technology is a nice touch. Fill the mixing bowl through the spout and rinse the whole juicer between juices without needing to disassemble it. When that time comes, follow the red dot indications marked on the juicer.
Now, this model might be pricey, but if you have a fluid budget and exacting tastes, the Breville Big Squeeze Slow Juicer is a must.
We’re aware that Breville has a wide bench of juicers and that things can seem quite confusing when you first explore the range.
We would advise you to first firm up your budget and this will immediately whittle away many options. There’s quite a discrepancy between prices so you can immediately formulate a shortlist based on budget.
You’ll then be faced with the usual choices when you’re buying a juicer…
Should you buy a masticating juicer or a centrifugal force juicer?
What type of fruits and vegetables are you looking to juice?
Will you only juice citrus fruits?
These questions and more should guide you toward the type and style of juicer that makes the smoothest fit. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution with these things.
