Breville 800JEXL Review

Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor

The Breville 800JEXL Juice juice extractor could easily be called the Ferrari of juice machines. Its looks and performance are revolutionary in the world of home appliances, and you’ll want to display it on the kitchen countertop as a piece of art.

Size and Design

The Breville Juice Fountain weighs nine pounds in a 17″x11″x20″ body of stainless steel. Its structure is modern and streamlined and every component is high tech, from the “smart chip” that instructs the blades how much power to use to the circular, three-inch feeding cylinder that lets you insert entire fruits and vegetables rather than slicing them into sections.

The feed tube fits right over the slicing blades in a patented design that permits you to process large quantities of fruits and vegetables fast and effortlessly.

You’ll also get a 34-ounce juicing pitcher with a spout opening, which translates to no overspray. The lid of the pitcher handily separates foam from juice so you’ll have the true flavor of the vegetables and fruits. You’ll also love the 100-ounce pulp container with the Breville juice fountain that lets you pick less or more pulp. All components disassemble quickly and easily.


Because the Breville does its task so quickly, noise isn’t a real problem. Turn it on and in moments you’ve got your juice. The snug fit of its components, the 115 dual action knives and the titanium-plated cutting disk make speedy work of any fruit and vegetable you select.

It’s an extremely impressive machine, but what noise you’re exposed to is secondary to the quality of the product and the tasty vegetable and fruit drinks you can prepare in an instant.

The Breville juicer is designed to be sturdy and never off balance. Its ejection style enhancer and high rpm motor makes sure that it maintains its balance and won’t cause unwanted noise and major cleanups like other juicers.


This Breville design contains 1000-watts, 1 1/3 horsepower and two speeds – high at an RPM 13,000 and low at 6,500 rpm to get as much juice as possible from any fruits and vegetables you prefer.

High speed on the Breville is approximately three times as fast as most other juicers, instantly gathering the pulp in the filtration system that’s small mesh and made of stainless steel. Five seconds is all the time it takes to make a standard glass of juice (approximately 8-oz) from hard fruits such as apple.

Soft fruits and veggies such as tomatoes, leafy greens and bananas can instantly create a glass of juice on the quite noiseless, low-speed setting. Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain close-up view

There aren’t any screws to interfere with taking apart this juicer for cleansing. All parts are dishwasher safe and stainless steel makes certain that you won’t have to deal with stains like other plastic-made juicers.

One of the primary complaints about juicers is that the wire-mesh screens of the pulp baskets have a tendency to plug up and are tough to clean. The Breville 800 juicer is so effective that the juice rarely has to be strained. Virtually every ounce of the fruits and vegetables are turned into juice and pulp is almost non-existent.

In some juicers, the dryness of the pulp depends on how tight you make the end plug. If the plug is screwed in tightly, you’ll create dry pulp, but the juicer will feed poorly and you might get backup in the feeder chute and have to feed the fruit or vegetables through again.

This juicer effortlessly generates dry pulp, but you won’t have to mess with plug adjustments or feeding the pulp through a second time. All these features help make the cleanup of this juice machine easy and efficient.

Volume and Taste

Simply how much can be squeezed out of the Breville depends on the type of fruit or vegetable you’re feeding it. But, rest assured that you’ll get the maximum volume of extracted juice when using this powerful machine.

You’ll find that this “Elite” juicer uses much less fruit to generate the amount of juice than other juice machines you’ve used in the past. And, there’s no more using brute strength to force the food through the feed tube. With the Breville, they never stalled in the feeder tube – even with fibrous items like celery.

Some juices have a tendency to taste “oxidized” when put through a juicing process, but users of this juicer report that the juice had none of that metal taste and scored the flavors optimal.

One feature of this juicer is that froth that forms from the juicing process is divided from the actual juice, making it easy to separate. The Breville juicer converts fruits and vegetables to juice in such a short amount of time that you’ll enjoy a fresher taste than with juicers that require minutes to process.


This is the juicer that juice fanatics “graduate” to when they want ease, taste and freshness of juicing fruits and vegetables. The cost of the machine is certainly worth the investment if you love your juice and plan to use it regularly.
