Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor
Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor is very popular and powerful, yet very simple to use, centrifugal juicer. It is medium size home juicer, with minimum maintenance and very easy to clean.
It comes with 1-year limited warranty, but if used properly, it can last for a long time.
If you like Mediterranean cuisine, then you prefer freshly made juices from artificial liquids that can be found in commercial stores.
Breville JE98XL juicer is one of the best buy juicers on the market, so if you need a good juicer, consider this one.
Juicer features an extra-wide, 3 inch (~7.5 cm) feeder chute, and it can create 8 oz. (~ 230g) cup of juice in just 5 seconds. It is suitable for making juices and smoothies from both fruits and vegetables, raw and cooked (boiled, steamed etc.), but raw fruits and vegetables are preferred choice for juices and smoothies.
Cutting disc is made out of stainless steel and the unit is very efficient in extracting the juice.
Breville JE98XL is powered by 850W dual-speed motor and it is very simple to use - switch has just three positions: high, off and low. Personally, I would recommend 'Low' setting in the beginning and when you get used to the machine, choose 'Low' or 'High' according to your needs. 'Low' speed setting (6500 rpm) is recommended for softer fruits and vegetables, while 'High' speed setting (12000 rpm - 200 rotations per second!) is recommended for harder fruits and vegetables.
Safety features include safety locking arm and overload protection LED. If it happens that LED is turned on often, consider adding less fruits and vegetables, check your cutting disc or check if something is blocking the disc. This is very strong unit and its protection LED shouldn't blink at all.
Pulp collector is quite large and it can store pulp from many juices. However, after each use, clean it - simple rinse with warm water is often enough (depends on the pulp, of course).
Breville JE98XL is made of dishwasher-safe parts - to be sure how to clean individual parts, how to use the unit and similar, please, check the manual which comes with the unit.
Unit includes 1-liter juice jug with froth separator, filter basket, and the cleaning brush. It measures 13.2 x 16.5 x 18.2 inches (~33.5 x 42 x 46 cm) - obviously, there are smaller juicers around, but there are also bigger once. Breville JE98XL is just the right size :)
The power cord wraps around the feet of the juicers and clips into position under the base for a reduced footprint.
