Buying guide for best Breville juicers

Last Updated September 2019

Apple and mango, carrot and ginger, or plain old OJ: there's no limit to flavor combos when you make your own juice. Whether you're juicing for health benefits of just for the fresh flavor, a Breville juicer is a fantastic, reliable choice.

You've settled on a Breville juicer, but which one? Although it varies, you'll usually find around nine Breville juicers to choose from at any one time, so you need to pick the right one to fit your requirements. Read on to learn about Breville juicers: the offerings made by the company, what to expect, and why you might want one.

Juicing is a delicious way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet.

Types of Breville juicers

Juice fountains
Juicers belonging to Breville's Juice Fountain range are centrifugal juicers. These types of juicers extract juice by chopping and spinning very quickly in a central chamber. The juice is separated from the pulp and is channeled out of the spout, while the pulp is collected in a separate container. Juice Fountains produce juice quickly, and most allow you to introduce whole fruits through the chute. However, they're not great at juicing greens and some soft fruits. You can find a range of different Juice Fountain models, including compact models and those that use cold juicing technology.

Big Squeeze juicers
If you're in the market for a masticating, or "cold press," juicer, check out Breville's Big Squeeze juicers. These juicers slowly press the juice out of fruit, which proponents claim retains more nutrients and gives a better flavor. We love how quiet these juicers are, and the juice has an excellent flavor. They're also great for juicing wheatgrass and other greens. On the downside, they're more expensive and aren't great for people in a rush.

Citrus presses
Breville also makes motorized citrus presses that are designed for juicing oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and other citrus fruits. They're not as versatile as other juicer varieties, but if you're completely sure you only want to juice citruses, keep in mind that a Breville citrus press does this quickly and effectively — no need to peel.

EXPERT TIP

You'll find your Breville juicer has a range of extras included, such as a pusher to help food down the chute and a cleaning brush for those hard-to-reach areas.

EXPERT TIP

It's important to thoroughly clean your juicer after each use. Otherwise, the traces of fruit left inside could spoil and grow harmful bacteria.

Key considerations

Juicing speed
How quickly does your chosen Breville juicer produce a glass of juice? A centrifugal juicer will produce juice very quickly, so your juice should be ready to drink in a minute or so. Masticating juicers, such as those in the Big Squeeze range, are slower, taking a few minutes to extract enough juice for a large glass. Juicing speed doesn't matter to everyone, but if it matters to you, one of Breville's Juice Fountains would be your best bet.

Motor size
As a rule, the larger the motor, the more powerful the juicer, and the quicker and more effectively it will extract juice. So, a 1,000-watt juicer is more powerful than a 700-watt model. However, you also need to look at juicer type. You can't realistically compare the motor sizes of centrifugal and masticating juicers to one another, since the way that masticating juicers work doesn't require as much motor power.

Size
Some Breville juicers have quite a large footprint, which can be an issue for people without much counter space. You can find more compact models with smaller footprints, but sometimes, these are taller to make up for it. This could be a problem if you have wall cupboards overhanging your counter, as you might not have enough headroom to use a tall juicer effectively.

Ease of cleaning
One of the great features of Breville juicers is that they tend to be easy to clean. The majority are dishwasher safe (all the parts that need cleaning, that is) and/or have a quick rinse function to rinse off the juicer between uses. This is a huge benefit when you're making a range of different juices at the same time, as you can rinse the juicer to prevent the flavor of your last batch from tainting the next one.

Elite status

With its attractive stainless steel body, the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite is a sight to behold. Once you get past the looks, it performs exceptionally, too. It might be expensive for a centrifugal juicer, but its powerful motor makes quick work of the toughest fruits and veggies, and the extraction system is designed for nutrient retention.

Features

Chute: The chute is where you put your fruit and vegetables to introduce them into the juicer. The majority of Breville juicers have extra-wide chutes, which means you don't have to chop any but the largest of fruits or vegetables.

Jug: Breville juicers have a jug that sits under the spout and catches the juice, so it is ready to pour. These jugs range in size from just over three-quarters of a quart to just over two quarts. If you're juicing for the whole family, a large jug is ideal. Lots of Breville juicer jugs also feature a froth separator to keep the foam that juicers often produce out of your glass.

Pulp container: The pulp that's separated from your juice needs to go somewhere, and that place is the pulp container. The larger the pulp container, the less likely it is that you'll need to stop to empty it part way through a juicing session.

Outstanding value

On the hunt for a more affordable Breville juicer? The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus could be what you've been searching for. The 850-watt motor might not be as powerful as the top models, but it still packs a punch. The one-liter jug is large enough to hold several glasses of juice and is equipped with a froth separator.

Breville juicer prices

Breville juicers are quality appliances, so they aren't cheap. The most inexpensive Breville juicer costs around $100, while the most expensive Breville juicer costs around $400. Mid-range options cost around $200 to $250. How much you pay will depend on the size and variety of juicer you're looking for.

Tips

  • Consider how many people you're juicing for. Also consider how much juice they drink. If you're only juicing for yourself, a slower or more compact model will do. If you need to make five or six glasses of juice each morning, you'll want a quick juicer with a large-capacity jug.

  • Check your Breville juicers speed settings. The majority of Breville juicers feature two speed settings. Lower speeds are best for soft fruits and greens, whereas high speeds are more effective at juicing hard fruits and vegetables.

  • Know what to do in case of a jam. Masticating juicers (such as those in Breville's Big Squeeze range) can become clogged, but they have a reverse function that helps to clear jams.

DID YOU KNOW?

It's easy to buy spare parts for your Breville juicer should something become lost or broken.

Other products we considered

You can't go wrong with a Breville juicer, so it was extremely tough to pick our top selections. For those with limited counter space or kitchen storage space, the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain is another great choice. Its compact footprint makes it a much more manageable size, though it's slightly less powerful than its larger counterparts. The Breville BJE830BSS1BUS1 Juice Fountain Cold XL is also an excellent choice. The two-liter jug collects enough juice for the whole family, while the cold spin technology helps retain nutrients and means your juice is nicely chilled straight out of the juicer.

The mesh filter basket in a Breville juicer helps give you the smoothest juice possible, free from pulp, seeds, and other bits.

FAQ

Q. Why choose a Breville juicer over another brand?
A.
There are hundreds of juicer brands on the market, so why choose Breville? The Breville name means something; it's a trusted brand with a history of making quality kitchen appliances. Breville juicers get consistently impressive customer reviews and are built to last. They're made with the user in mind and have a range of handy features that make them a pleasure to use and maintain.

Q. Are Breville juicers loud?
A.
Some Breville juicers are quite loud, but the same can be said for all juicers; this isn't a trait unique to Breville models. If you're looking for a quieter option, pick a masticating juicer over a centrifugal model.

Q. Are Breville juicers BPA-free?
A.
While we can't guarantee Breville juicers are 100% BPA-free, any parts of the juicers that come into contact with food are, so there's no chance of leaching.
