Power & Noise Levels
Now you might think that due to its compact size that it’s perhaps a bit lacking in sheer juicing power. This is simply not the case, as this Breville juicer is ultra-powerful. Its 700-watt motor easily spins the stainless steel cutting disc at around 13,000 rpm. This allows the cutting blade to easily extract juices from any type of fruit or vegetable.
Though most customers who purchased this product are quite impressed with its power there is, however, some downfalls to using a juicer that operates at this level. One of these minor complaints is that the product is a bit too loud for some people, as it operates at such a high rpm there is bound to be a bit of noise.
It certainly isn’t something that has people refusing to purchase this product and some even say that it’s a bit quieter than some other brands. The other complaint associated with this product is that the motor tends to suck in quite a bit of air and produce a bit of heat when extracting the juices, which, in turn, will oxidize the juice rather quickly.
Breville BJE200XL Juice Quality
This simply means that the juice extracted from this Breville juicer will not keep well for long periods of time. In fact, it’s recommended that you drink or use what you are extracting right away as it will only be good for about a day. Most juicers adhere to this rule so there really shouldn’t be any surprises there, but it’s worth mentioning nonetheless.
As far as the quality of the juice extracted by this product, it’s very good. The juice will taste great and the yield will be very high. In fact, about four carrots, a couple sticks of celery, two apples, and two pears or similar fruit and vegetables were able to produce about 16 ounces of juice according to one customer. There will, however, be a bit of foam in the final product, but most customers don’t find that to be much of a problem.
Size of Feeding Tube
Now that the two very minor complaints have been mentioned it’s time to focus more on what makes this product great. Besides the sheer power and compact size of
this Breville product, it also incorporates a rather large 3-inch tube where you will befeeding the ingredients into.
This is a bit larger than some juicers and will definitely save you some time as it can fit larger bits of fruits and vegetable with ease. This makes it much faster to use than some other juicers as you will not have to spend a bunch of time chopping your ingredients up.
Juicer Ease of Use
This product is also very easy to use because it only has five removable parts, the cover, shredding disc, plunger, pulp catcher, juice jug, and it uses a simple on/off switch. You won’t need to waste a ton of time and energy assembling the product or trying to figure out which settings to use because it’s very straightforward.
Cleaning the BJE200XL
This also makes it a breeze to clean as the removable parts are dishwasher safe and the product also comes with a pretty handy scrub brush for the stainless steel blade. It also comes with a lidded one-liter pitcher, a spatula, and a froth separator. Any of the parts are also easily replaced if one happens to get damaged or lost. You can find them with relative ease from the Breville website. If something does happen to malfunction or break within a year of its purchase, the warranty will cover it.
Cost of the Breville Juicer
The price tag on this product is certainly something to talk about because it’s one of the least expensive products of its kind on the market today and you can enjoy this product for only around $100. This certainly won’t put too much of a dent in your wallet as some juice extractors can run you twice that amount.
Pros and Cons
This juicer is simply a great product for those looking for a compact, powerful, and reliable juicer. Its simplistic design makes it easy to use and hassle-free to assemble, disassemble, and clean. It incorporates everything you need in a juicer and will not disappoint. As mentioned above, this product may not be for everybody as the juice has a very short shelf life and the juicer can be a bit too noisy for some users.
It also only operates at one speed and, therefore, it may be a turn off for more experienced juicers who like to customize the speed with which they juice certain fruits and vegetables. The pros of the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain 700-Watt Juice Extractor certainly outweigh the cons and most people who have purchased this product simply love it.
