Breville 800JEXL Juicer: Top Pick
Why do we think the Breville 800JEXL is the best mid-range centrifugal juicer?
Beautiful and Durable
First of all the housing is made of die-cast steel which makes this juicer one of the most durable models you will find. Additionally the gorgeous look that the die-cast steel gives this juicer makes this model a perfect fit in any kitchen.
This juicer is fairly large and a bit heavy but this is just a testament to it’s quality construction and solid build.
Only 4 Parts to Clean
This juicer only has 4 parts that need to be cleaned after each use and they are dishwasher safe so clean up really is quick and easy with this model. More importantly than the ease of which this centrifugal juicer can be cleaned is the fact that there are only 4 parts, this means it won’t take much effort when it comes to assembling and disassembling your juicer.
3 Inch Wide Mouth Feeder Chute
The Breville 800JEXL features a 3 inch wide mouth feeder chute which is going to reduce the time it takes you to make your juice. Why, having such a large feeder chute means you will spend less time cutting up your fruits and vegetables. This does not mean that some cutting may be required but most fruits and vegetables will fit with just one or two cuts and many with out having to be cut at all.
Slow Speed Juicer
Although this is not a slow or cold press juicer it does have two speeds the lowest of which is going to work best for tough greens and soft fruit. Additionally this juicer produces much less heat than many other centrifugal juicers, only 1.8 degrees F, this means less of the enzymes and antioxidants will be lost due to heat.
Although the Breville 800JEXL is a fairly expensive juicer the blades alone make this centrifugal juicer a great deal. The titanium-reinforced blades will not only stay sharper for much longer than ordinary blades but they will do a much better job cutting the fruits and vegetables thus producing more juice.
We really can’t say enough about the difference these blades can make.
What is the Breville 800JEXL Lacking
The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite is far from “Elite” when it comes to its warranty. Unfortunately this otherwise fantastic juicer only comes with a 1 year warranty. You would expect a warranty equal to other juicers in this price range which are typically going to be 15 years and often times even for life.
This is definitely an area that Breville needs to improve on.
Unfriendly Customer Service
We can not speak from first hand knowledge but from what we could learn Breville does not have a very helpful customer service department. In fact there seems to be many complaints of customer service representatives being rude or hanging up on customers.
The Breville 800JEXL is our choice for the best mid-range centrifugal juicer and for good reason. This simply is the best juicer when it comes to centrifugal juicers in this price range. It is easy to use, it cleans up easily, it works well with all types of fruits and vegetables and it has a reasonable price.
You can find centrifugal juicers for a much lower cost but they are not going to perform nearly as well as this machine and the fact that it is so easy to use makes it a great entry level choice for someone who is new to juicing but wants a better and healthier juice than a less costly model will produce.
