Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite Review
The Breville 800JEXL Juice Foundation Elite is a Centrifugal Juicer. A process in which a high speed blade separates the juice from the pulp of the produce, similar to that of a blender.
Housing of the Juicer is sleek and stunning die-cast steel. Made almost entirely of metal makes this appliance very sturdy.
The base too has a die-cast finish which is rust resistant. The cutting disc is reinforced with titanium, enabling it to last a very long time. So if you longevity of the appliance is on your checklist, this one definitely ticks the box.
If you like smooth, pulp free juice then you will love the Breville 800JEXL. It does a great job at removing most of the pulp to ensure a smooth juicing experience.
The large sized pulp catcher and 1 liter juicing jug is an added bonus to make larger batches of juice in the one go. One review stated that 15 lbs of fruits and vegetables took a mere 4.5 minutes to juice into 2 quarts of juice. It’s a high quality juicer that will extract as much juice as possible leaving the pulp dry.
Let’s take a look now at the features and specifications in this Breville 800JEXL juice review to reveal more about the appliance.
Size: 17” x 11” x 20”
Weight: 17.2 lbs
All metal housing – this is a great bonus, not only is it good to look at, but it’s practical because of durability and rust resistance.
Heavy duty 1000 watt motor with dual speed control – a unique feature to have for a juicer. You can choose the low speed, 6,500RPM for soft fruits and vegetables and high speed, 13,000RPM for fruits and vegetables that are harder.
Extra large feed chute – measuring at 3” wide, this results is little no cutting of produce.
Safety locking arm – The Juicer won’t operate without the cover locked into place.
Easy clean – Comes with a cleaning brush and ALL parts with the exception of the mesh filter basket/Nutri Disc and food pusher can be washed on the top shelf of your dishwasher – how’s that for making it an easy clean? Place a bag into the pulp container for even easier cleaning.
Short warranty – Breville only offers a 1 year warranty.
Juice has a short life – As the juice needs to be consumed as soon as made and can’t really be stored safely for more than a few hours, this can be annoying only being able to make juice as you need.
Works best with:
The Breville 800JEXL works best with both hard and soft fruits and vegetables. However, it can have some issues with leafy greens. This can be worked around by ‘packing’ the leafy greens in tightly into the juicer rather than placing them in loosely one by one.
When making juice with the Breville 800JEXL, consume it as soon as you make it. Even when stored in a glass jar in the fridge it spoils within a few hours. This is typical not just of this juicer but centrifugal juicers in general. This is due to the fact that lots of air goes into the juice, making the oxidation process take place faster.
Best suited for:
Beginner juicers looking for an easy to use juicer that is fuss free and easy to clean and not wanting to have to replace the juicer any time soon – this one will have a long life as it’s very high quality and durable. Also suited to anyone needing to make juice in the morning quickly, this juicer is the one for you.
I rate the Breville 800JEXL 8/10.
The Breville 800JEXL is a great centrifugal juicer that does what it says it will. Fresh juice made with ease, when you want. A high quality juicer that will last for many years.
