Comparing different models from the same brand can be can be confusing. This is usually because they’re built using the same foundational designs and technology, and it’s the subtle differences that give one model superiority over another. We’d say this is the case with Breville juicers.

Many people know Breville as the manufacturer of high-quality kitchen appliances like kettles and toasters. They also do juicers, though you know that already if you’ve found yourself on this page.

Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite Centrifugal Juicer, Brushed Stainless Steel

Our rating:

The best Breville juicer is, unsurprisingly, one of the most expensive. The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite lives up to its name as one of the best-regarded juicers in the Breville catalog. This Breville juicer replaced an older model that was discontinued and we love it.

As is the case with many Breville juicers, it can run at two juicing speeds, 13,000 RPM or 6,500 RPM, thanks to the 1000-watt motor contained inside it. There aren’t many other Breville juicers that can reach a max RPM of 13,000, so you’re getting the performance you pay for if you get the 800JEXL Elite model.

You get a lot for what you pay for, too, since this is a seventeen-pound model that has a large and sturdy presence when it’s set up in your kitchen. This weight acts as an anchor to prevent any accidents occurring with the juicer being knocked aside, and whilst we couldn’t test it, the model feels like you couldn’t break the outer shell if you tried.

The 800JEXL model is known to leave the leftover fruit pulp very dry, which is a very basic way of showing you that it’s gotten the most juice out of the fruits you’ve loaded into it. It’s one thing to have a fancy and unnecessary display that tells you how well it juices fruits, but you can’t deny your own senses, and touching the fruits after they’ve been juiced will show that they’re dry as a bone.

As you can imagine, completely draining fruits or vegetables of their juices can leave a mess behind. The mess is contained entirely within the juicer, and thankfully it’s safe to clean in the dishwasher if you have one. If not, it’s still pretty easy to clean as long as you clean it after use as you should.

As one of the more expensive Breville products, they offer a warranty that lasts for one year when you purchase this product. This protects you should the product fail in this period through no fault of your own.

 

Pros
  • Is capable of two juicing speeds, 13,000 and 6,500 RPMs, by using a 1000-watt motor.
  • The large and sturdy frame is almost unbreakable. High-quality construction.
  • Leaves the pulp dry as a bone.
  • Dishwasher safe, so it’s easy to clean.
  • Comes complete with a 1-year warranty.
Cons
  • Higher price compared to the rest of the Breville catalog.

Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus Centrifugal Juicer, Brushed Stainless Steel

Our rating:

Now that we’ve gotten our number one Breville juicer out of the way, next we have one of the most popular juicer models they offer. This is the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus and, if the similarity in names didn’t tip you off, the Juice Fountain Plus could be considered the smaller cousin of the Juice Fountain Elite at number one.

Running off of an 850-watt motor, this juicer has less power but is quieter than the previous juicing option, so this can be a great choice for those who dislike louder kitchen appliances. It can also run at two speeds.

The slower speed is 6,500 RPM again while the max speed is 12,000 RPM, which isn’t quite as much as the previous model but should be ample power for most juicing.

The juicer features an extra-wide three-inch feeding chute that you drop the fruit into. It’s large enough that most fruits can enter it whole and, once the juicer whirs to life, it’ll produce eight ounces of juice in only five seconds of juicing.

Afterward, you can clean the juicer in the dishwasher or use the accompanying cleaning brushes to make it squeaky clean. There’s also a filter basket and froth separator that makes it easy to clean up.

Like its larger cousin, the JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus has quite a rigid construction. It’s made with a heavy-grade polymer body that resists any dents and accidents that could happen when it’s set up in your kitchen.

You shouldn’t need to worry about this juicer breaking from any accidental knocks. The JE98XL is also covered by Breville’s one-year warranty against poor workmanship and other troubles that aren’t caused by you, the customer.

Pros
  • A smaller, quieter, and more affordable juicer that runs off of an 850-watt motor and juices at 12,000 RPM and 6,500 RPM.
  • An extra-wide 3-inch feeder chute allows this juicer to produce 8 ounces of juice in five seconds.
  • Easy to clean thanks to the inclusion of a froth separator, filter basket, and cleaning brushes.
  • Sturdy heavy-grade polymer body makes it perfect for busy kitchens.
  • Breville’s 1-year warranty applies to this product.
Cons
  • Can struggle with leafy greens.

Breville BJE200XL Juice Fountain Compact Centrifugal Juicer, Silver

Our rating:

Next, we have an option that’s perfect for those who may not have much space to operate with. We say this because next up is the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain, a juicer that weighs only ten pounds.

It runs off of a 700-watt motor to achieve a very admirable 14,000 RPM when spinning and juicing your favorite foods and vegetables.

For how small this model is, you’d be surprised at how much noise this juicer can make. We’d say this is the only truly unpleasant disadvantage. It has a smaller capacity and only one speed, too, but given the nature of the product, we’d assume that you’re at peace with this being a smaller and simpler model.

Don’t mistake its compactness for weakness, however, as this model also has a heavy-grade polymer body that’s resistant to scratching and other damage that can occur to your kitchen appliances.

Even despite how compact it is, the BJE200XL model shares the three-inch feed tube that other Breville juicers have. This allows you to feed whole fruits into the machine and maximizes the amount of juice it can produce in a short time span.

It’s dishwasher safe, too, and it comes with a custom cleaning brush to help you get into those tight spaces where some extra elbow grease may be required.

Between having a dishwasher option and a manual cleaning option, you shouldn’t have a problem keeping this Breville model squeaky clean.

This ease of maintenance is only helped by the Breville one-year limited warranty that protects your purchase should the model break through no fault of your own.

Pros
  • A lightweight, 700-watt juicer that spins at 14,000 RPM.
  • A heavy-grade polymer body ensures this compact model stays durable.
  • Has a large 3-inch feed tube despite its smaller size.
  • Comes with a custom cleaning brush and is dishwasher safe.
  • Covered by Breville’s 1-year limited warranty.
Cons
  • For a small juicer, it sure makes a lot of noise.

Breville BJB840XL Juice and Blend Dual-Purpose Juicer and Blender

Our rating:

Lastly, we have a juicer that isn’t just a juicer, it can act as a blender too. It’s the Breville BJB840XL Juice and Blend Dual-Purpose Juicer, and it’s the perfect Breville model for those who don’t want to waste any of the pulp left behind after you’ve juiced fruits.

With this product, you can juice certain fruits and, if the pulp is whole enough and will make a good smoothie, you can blend it to use every last cell of the fruit.

It shares the three-inch feeder tubes that are common with Breville juicers, and this feature is arguably more important here since you’ll want to also put the pulp into the blending area. It makes sure to process every ounce of food material through its hemisphere blade and bowl technology that hugs the sides of the juicing and blending bowl.

It also has five variable speeds for both the juicer and the blender portions of this machine, so you won’t find yourself wanting some added functionality if you choose this machine. You should be aware that they both run off of a single motor and so, if that motor breaks, you’ll lose all that this product offers.

Pros
  • Juicer and blender combination allows you to use the entirety of the fruit, pulp and all.
  • No pre-cutting required thanks to a 3-inch feeder tube.
  • Hemisphere blade & bowl tech eliminates food traps.
  • Five variable speeds for both the juicer and blender portions of the model.
Cons
  • Both machines run off of one motor.

Best Breville Juicer Reviews – Buyers Guide

How to choose the best juicers

We’ve been talking about Breville juicers a lot for this article, and for good reason, since they’re a reputable brand that field a lot of quality products. We have written this buyers’ guide to explain not just what makes a good Breville juicer but also what makes a good juicer in general.

We’ve done this by highlighting the different considerations that you should have when choosing a juicer in the subheadings below, so take a look if you want to learn how you can find the most quality juicers on the market without needing our help in the future.

Types of Juicers

As of right now, there are three main types of juicers available to consumers, which are centrifugal, masticating, and triturating. Some are known by different names like, for example, masticating juicers are often called slow juicers or single gear juicers while triturating ones are called dual gear juicers.

So, what does each mean? Centrifugal juicers are the most common, in both the home and in Breville’s product catalog. Because of how prevalent they are, you can likely find many cheaper but high-quality centrifugal juicers since it’s the most competitive juicer market. They’re also the most convenient, often having wide feeder chutes that allow you to load whole fruits into the juicer without having to cut them. We’d suggest getting centrifugal juicers over masticators or triturating juices because of how convenient and cost-efficient they tend to be.

Masticating juicers are the slower, pressure-based juicers that pulp fruits without using any heat when in operation, making them quite safe. As we said, they’re quite slow, so they’re not for the impatient but are instead best for those who want to extract every drop of juice out of their fruit. Masticating juicers also limit oxidation.

Triturating juicers are very high-end, so you shouldn’t go looking for them if you’re on a budget, and because of this, they’re thought of as being the option for professionals. The higher price tag isn’t without justification as these fancy machines will get the most nutrients and enzymes out of your fruit.

Extraction Quality

A juicer isn’t much use if it doesn’t juice well, that should go without saying, but how do you judge the extraction quality of a juicer without getting into metrics that the average person would struggle to understand? Many juicers try to demonstrate their ability by saying that they’ll leave the pulp very dry since there’s no liquid left in it.

Unfortunately, you can’t take every seller on the internet at their word. What we’d suggest is that you check reviews. If they weren’t exaggerating how dry the pulp is left by their juicers then they were probably telling the truth, but unhappy customers will call them out if they said that and it wasn’t true.

Speed Settings

Assuming you have a centrifugal juicer like the ones in our list above, you’ll usually be relying on electricity-powered motors that allow the juicer to do its job and do it fast. Now, speed isn’t everything when juicing, sometimes a longer juicing process will get you more juice.

That said, it can be handy to have more than one speed setting. Centrifugal juicers will usually either have a single speed that’s at or over 12,000 RPM whilst those with two speed settings will have a faster speed but also include a slower speed, often half as much as the fast speed at 6,500 RPM.

If you want more options in how you can extract juice from your fruit, we’d suggest getting a juicer with two speed modes for the best of both worlds.

Ease of Cleaning

Once your juicer has done its job, it should be easy to clean. A harder cleaning process will make using your juicer a chore.

Look for juicers that are either dishwasher-friendly or come with custom brushes and other tools that you can use to easily and effectively hand clean them. Some even support both cleaning methods so you can tackle all messes that form inside the juicer.
