Review Of The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor
It should come as no surprise that the latest juicer from Breville, the 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite Juice Extractor, took the top of the charts in nearly all categories. It’s been labeled the best mid-range juicer on the market in 2017. Wondering why? Read the following review, explaining some of the finer details.
A look at some of the specs:
- Operates using 1000 watts.
- Dimensions of 17 inches by 11 inches by 20 inches.
- Safe to clean in the dishwasher.
- Centrifugal design.
- A few accessories included, like a brush, container, bin, and separator.
First, here’s a look at the pros of the appliance.
1. The Choice Of Material.
The choice to use die-cast has delivered an appliance that not only looks spectacular but is also extremely durable. Chances are, you could throw it on the floor without taking any damage. But of course, we don’t recommend that you do so. The stainless steel design allows it to fit in with any modern kitchen décor. It’s an impressive size and does stand out, but that’s not a bad thing.
2. Cleaning Is Very Easy.
After using the appliance, there are four separate components you need to remove and rinse. It takes only a few minutes and its back up and running for another juice. Being so easy to clean makes it perfect for juicers who don’t have much time on their hand. There’s no complex assembly required.
3. Large Opening.
This another feature that the busy juicer will appreciate. There’s a three-inch wide feeder, which means you don’t need to spend half of an hour getting the vegetables or fruits ready to go in the juicer. If it’s a small fruit, then you can put the whole thing in there. Most other fruits might need to be cut in half or quarters at most. Overall, very little work is needed, which makes it a faster process.
4. Variable Speeds.
Not all fruits and vegetables are easy to juice. That’s why we’re so glad that this juicer has two-speed options. If you have a vegetable that is particularly hard, then you can crank the juicer up to high and watch it make quick work of it. Combine this with how easy it is to load and clean and you’ve got yourself the fastest juicer on the market today.
5. High-Quality Blades.
Some buyers might be turned away from the high cost at first, but once they see the high-quality titanium blades at work, you realize where that money is going. The blades make this juicer worth every penny of the cost. They cut fast, and they require very little maintenance.
Of course, no appliance is perfect. There were a couple of areas where we thought they could have improved their product.
1. The Duration Of The Warranty.
It’s great that they offer a warranty, but unfortunately, it’s only a year long. When you consider how much money you are forking over for this appliance, it makes you wish it was a little longer. It’s even worse when you consider competitors who offer warranties of 15 years or more.
2. Quality Of Customer Service.
While Breville offers amazing products, it seems their customer service isn’t quite up to par. There were numerous complaints stating that their customer service was rude and often unhelpful. Hopefully, this is an issue they will have fixed as soon as possible.
There’s a reason that this appliance was ranked the number one mid-range juicer. It’s durable, fast, and easy to work with. It’s so easy that it would make a great juicer for the first time buyer. Not only would they get a machine that is easy to use, but also one that can produce high-quality juice in record breaking times. But it’s not only for beginners. The quality of the juice and the durability of the machine makes it perfect for intermediate juicers as well. Even the advanced juicers will appreciate the titanium blades. Overall, it’s a great machine for anyone interested in juicing.
