Reading single Breville juice extractor reviews may provide you lots of information and facts about each model that they produce. However, suppose you don’t know which one is ideal for you? In fact, the prices range between $99 to $499. There is certainly a difference among them! That is where a comparison review goes in. In this post we will include all 7 of the Breville juicers and discuss exactly what features they possess in common and where they differ.
The Seven Breville Juice extractor Models are:
Juice Fountain Compact BJE200XL of $99.00
Juice Fountain Plus JE98XL of $149.00
Ikon Multi-speed Juice Fountain BJE510XL of $199.00
Die-cast Juice Fountain Elite 800JEXL of $299.00
Dual Disc Juice Processor BJE820XL of $399.00
The Juice and Blend BJB840XL of $499.00
Die Cast Citrus Press 800CPXL of $189.00
All these 7 models are produced by the same company, Breville, an Australian manufacturer that has engaged in the industry since 1932. They are all quite similar other than the very last one in the above list, the die cast citrus press. We’ll take care of that one very quick, as it is so different from the others.
The citrus press juicer is a hand powered press style juicer that juices only citrus fruit; grapefruits, oranges, lemons, etc. It is made from die cast metal to endure against the acidity of many citrus fruits. Besides that, It features a power assisted press, which can make it less difficult to extract the citrus juice, much less muscle mass needed! The big detraction on many customer juicer reviews is that there is a plastic material part under the press that wears out with heavy use.
Okay, now let’s go over the other six juice extractor reviews in this line. The first 4 in the list, the compact, the plus, the ikon and the elite are all home level juicers. They are the models that many people would choose to buy for home juicing.
They are all centrifugal juicer extractors (compared with masticating juicers. Read more on the comparison between these two types of juicer here). What it means in simple English is that they can juice quickly (much quicker than the other type) but will also heat the juice much more than the other one generally do. This shall be a problem only when you are really concern about the heat and enzymes contain in your juice produced. The more fresh juice is heated up, the more it loses beneficial health encouraging enzymes. If this is a problem for you, consider another model of juicer from another manufacturer altogether.
The compact features a 750 watt motor, the plus an 850 watt motor, the ikon a 900 watt motor and the elite has a 1,000 watt motor. With regard to industry standards with centrifugal juicers, these are quite good. With centrifugal juices, the higher the motor wattage the better.
The first 2 in the line, the compact and the plus, possess a plastic housing in a silver finish that imitates stainless steel. The ikon can make the improve to stainless steel and the elite to die cast metal. All of the Breville juice extractors reviewed have a really appealing appearance, yet the silver finish on the last two models would wear with time.
Some other differences are the speed controls. The compact is a one speed juicer. The plus has 2 speeds setting, the ikon has a tremendous 5 speeds, the elite has 2 speeds.
Therefore between these four, which one is the best juicer reviewed? The compact is an excellent purchase for the casual juicer at a low price of $99. The plus at $149 is a pass because of consumer reports of motor burn-outs. The upgrade to the $199 ikon is more efficient. The elite at $299 and titanium cutting blades is heading into durable juicer area. It is for customers who need to do extensive juicing. With regard to most families the compact or the ikon would be perfect.
Now what about those other two juicers? Both the dual disc juice processor and the juice & blend are juicer/blender combos. At $399 the dual disc features a durable die cast body, a 1200 watt motor, 5 speed juicing and titanium cutting discs. Just revealed in August 2010 is the $499 juice & blend. It differs from the twin disc in that there are two individual top mounts that could be connected to the motor base. One is a juicer and one is a blender. They are generally two separate devices that share one signle motor base. The juice and blend also features 5 speed settings and titanium cutting discs. These two are for serious juicing and smoothie making fans, or cooks who would like the creme de la creme of devices in their kitchen!
