Cuisinart CJE-1000 1000-Watt 5-Speed Juice Extractor

A three-inch feed tube that gobbles whole veggies and fruits is one of the great features of the Cuisinart CJE-1000  juicer. That means there’s less dicing and chopping for you.

Another fantastic feature is that it was designed as a juice extractor, which means it extracts the juice with centrifugal force, so you can use fruits or vegetables that are harder in nature, such as raw carrots and apples rather than the soft varieties such as bananas and cucumbers.

Some other great – and not so great – features of the Cuisinart CJE juicer are listed below.

Size and Design

This Cuisinart juice extractor weighs in at a lightweight 9 pounds, so it’s perfect for small kitchens where you can hide it away and easily bring it out to make your juice.

Unless you have an abundance of counter space in your kitchen, the 15 ¼ x 11 1/8 x 19 inches that it takes up might be a problem. The juicer is die-cast with a stainless-steel exterior and all parts are dishwasher safe.

The tree-inch feeding tube makes using whole fruits and vegetables easy and it comes with a specially designed, filter basket that helps eliminate foam, a 2-liter pulp container, one-quart pitcher and a brush you can clean it out with.

Another design feature that’s exclusive to this juicer is the lock and lift system that ensures stability and juice leakage. An anti-drip, adjustable flow spout completely eliminates drips or spills and you can control the speed with the 5-Speed control dial.

A blue LED light ring is also part of the sleek design of the Cuisinart juicer.

The design of this juicer isn’t as sleek as the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain, but it does have the same ability to juice whole fruits and veggies – an extra plus if you’re in a hurry for your juice.


Users of the Cuisinart CJE 1000 juicer praise it for its smooth and quiet operation. The fact that you can use the 5-speed control dial for the type of fruits and veggies you’re feeding the juicer helps to eliminate much of the noise you might experience with a juicer that only has one or two settings.

If noise matters to you, this juicer is one of the more quiet ones tested.


The Cuisinart juicer contains a powerful, 1000-watt motor and you can choose speed settings according to the easy to use control dial. Your preparation time for fruits and vegetables will be much less because of the 3-inch feed tube. Just insert whole apples, pears and oranges into the feeder and watch this juicer make fast work of them.

You can make up to a quart of juice to place on the table or keep leftovers in the pitcher to store in the refrigerator for later.

Clean Up

Clean up is no problem with the Cuisinart. All parts are dishwasher safe and can be quickly and easily removed. Cuisinart has even included a cleaning brush and a 2-liter pulp container that makes the process of discarding unwanted pulp easy and fast.

The design and usability of the product makes cleaning it a trouble-free and almost effortless task.

Volume and Taste

The Cuisinart juicer won’t produce as much juice as the Breville 800 juicer, simply because of the efficient 115 dual action knives and cutting disk that gives the Breville extra action.

The Breville juice extractor comes with a 34-ounce juicer, whereas the Cuisinart is designed for only a quart of juice. If you have a large family and are passionate about juice-making you may not be happy with the amount of juice you get with the Cuisinart compared to the Breville – using the same fruits and vegetables.

The taste of fruit and vegetable juices extracted from this juicer is refreshing and tasty. The fact that you can feed whole fruits and veggies into its 3-inch feed tube ensures that you get the freshest taste and that vitamins and minerals are passed on in the juice.


The Cuisinart juice extractor is less expensive than the Breville, but you may be sacrificing a few desirables such as the volume of fruit and vegetables extraction you can produce.

The Cuisinart is definitely worth the asking price and will be a great addition to your kitchen appliances, both in design and durability. This unit comes with a 3 year limited warranty.
