This juicer packs a lot of power. I am able to produce 8 ounces of juice from whole apples in a quick 5 seconds with my Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus. It is efficient and easy to use. The large feeding chute makes it easier since less chopping prior to juicing is necessary.
I like the dual-speed motor and stainless-steel cutting disc. These components enable this juice extractor to extract the juices from a variety of produce with little effort. I run everything from cucumbers, soft melons, pineapple (with the rind on), apples, and carrots through it with no problem at all. Again, thanks to the extra-wide 3-inch feeding tube along with the power of the 850-watt motor. The yield is delicious, fresh, nutritious juice – every time.
Like must juicers I have tested, the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus comes equipped with a pusher which assists in feeding produce into the feeding chute. This makes the juicing process a whole lot easier. Also, the two power settings make it easy to juice denser fruits (high power – 12,000 RPMs) or softer fruits and leafy greens with the lower power setting (6,500 RPMs). Choose your power by choosing your setting.
The pulp collector is a large capacity allowing for the maximum of seeds, pulp and skin to gather leaving delicious, nutritious juice. The pulp nicely collects in the container and does not build up around the cutting blade making clean up easier. It also makes it more convenient to use the pulp for recipes. Sometimes, I use the pulp to make soup stock or delicious veggie burgers. It can enhance so many dishes and is a shame to throw away. It is packed with fiber and nutrients. The Breville chops it up finely with it stainless steel cutting disc making it a simple addition to whatever use you may find for it.
The Breville JE98XL juice extractor can fit right on your countertop. It has a nice looking polymer exterior that is heavy grade and features a locking arm for safety. It has an attractive stainless-look housing that is sturdy and durable. There is an LED overload protector that will keep the motor from burning out from overburden.
When I got the unit home and unpacked it, I was thrilled with how it looked on my countertop as it is an attractive unit. The instruction booklet for setup and use was easy to follow and intuitive. I was up and running in no time.
Included with this juice extractor are a 1-liter juice jug with a froth separator, a micro mesh stainless-steel filter basket, and a cleaning brush. The pieces are top-shelf dishwasher safe. The cleaning brush makes the stainless cutting basket easy to clean as well. Once you brush off most of the debris on the basket, you can run it through the dishwasher as well. While it is a bit pricier than some other juicers on the market averaging under $150, you get what you pay for. I have used my unit for over 2 years with no problems or signs of wear. And, it is still going strong.
A glass of juice is a glass of goodness for your health. The Breville makes it quick and easy to nourish yourself.
