Quality, quality, quality. This juicer has it. I am an avid juicer and have tried many juicers over the years. But, I must say, the Breville BJE200XL is a first rate machine. Its under $100 price tag is well worth the purchase. I juice regularly and found that I can make an 8 ounce glass of delicious freshly pressed vegetable juice in about 5 seconds. And, the pulp that shoots out into the pulp container is finely chopped up ensuring that I am getting maximum juice extraction from the veggies and fruits I run through the unit. It uniquely features a cyclonic system that spins the strainer basket enabling the high output juice extraction.
This is a powerful machine. It houses a 700-watt motor and operates at 14,000 RPM delivering fast operation. When I juice using the Breville, I barely have to use the food pusher to push the produce down to the strainer basket. It is so powerful it pretty much pulls the foods down into the mouth of the juicer on its own. However, be warned that you may want to use the pusher nonetheless since you may end up with splatter on your ceiling as a result of the pulverization of the foods during the juicing process.
This is a result of the stabilizing dual knife assembly that is featured on the Breville BJE200XL. What this does is center the foods over the middle of the cutter and filter allowing them to mince into finely chopped minute particles. This stabilizing feature forces the particles into this juicers stainless-steel micro-mesh filter increasing the production of juice by about 30%. Pulp is neatly shot out into the pulp container for easy disposal or use for other purposes such as soup stock, compost or veggie burgers.
This is a great feature. I have found that I get my moneys worth when juicing with this unit. I get more out of my produce plus the fresh juice is produced 10 times faster than competitor brands.
With all of the power the Breville BJE200XL 700-watt compact juice fountain exudes, it can actually juice a whole pineapple – rind and all. I tried it!
Another feature that I like is that the 3 inch feed tube is extra large and centered on top of the unit. This makes juicing whole veggies and fruits possible. I do not have a lot of time during the day and appreciate not having to chop up most fruits and veggies before I juice them.
What’s more is that this juice extractor is easy to clean with dishwasher-safe parts and an included custom-cleaning brush. This powerhouse of a juicer has so many great features that save me time and money. I don’t see how you couldn’t love it!
