Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor – A Complete Review
For good health and vitality, we all need vitamins and nutrients from fresh fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately squeezing fruits and vegetables into vitamins and nutrients requires time-consuming preparation which conflicts with our modern, busy lifestyles. A Breville Fountain Juicer takes fruit and vegetables and separates the nutrient and vitamin-rich juice from the pulp. And it does this quickly and easily. A fresh juice with no preservatives or additives is way healthier and better than store-bought, pre-processed juice.
The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite is popularly known as the Cadillac of juicers but does it really live up to its claims?
The Breville 800JEXL has an Italian made an electronic motor that increases power when it’s under heavy use in order to maintain filter revolutions.
You can choose between 2 speeds for soft and hard fruits plus you’ll have a 3-inch feed chute where you can easily prepare and put in your fruits and vegetables. It also has an elegant stainless die-cast steel housing which you can confidently display in your kitchen table.
Unrivaled power meets the highest quality components and revolutionary design in this life-changing appliance. Touted as North America’s fastest juicer, after being timed making an 8-ounce glass of juice in an astonishing 5 seconds, the world’s fastest juicer might be a more apt description. Designed by innovative, world-renowned engineer Keith Hensel in 1999, the Breville Juice Fountain was the world’s first domestic juicer to accept whole fruit and vegetables with no chopping, peeling, slicing, or dicing. The fruit is largely composed of water, but its selling point is its nutritional value. How do you extract the juice from fruit, without leaving the nutrients behind? Breville’s Nutri Disc and patented juicing system extract more nutrients than other juicers and transfers less than 1.8°F of heat to protect enzymes and maximize nutrient absorption of select nutrients. The uniquely designed juicing system features a feed chute that is centered over the shredding disc. This allows for more efficient juicing than systems that introduce ingredients on the side of the shredding disc. Two speeds allow you to adjust for the type of ingredients you are using. It is suggested that when juicing a variety of ingredients with varying textures, you begin with the softer textured ingredients on low-speed then change to high speed for harder texture ingredients. If you are juicing herbs, sprouts or leafy green vegetables either wrap them together to form a bundle or juice them in the middle of a combination of ingredients on low-speed to obtain the best extraction. An extra-wide, 3-inch across feed chute makes it possible to feed whole apples, carrots, tomatoes, and peeled oranges into the juicer, saving you time and effort.

Breville 800JEXL Review
One thing that you’ll love about the Breville 800JEXL is that it gives you a very fast juicing speed. It’s also relatively easy to clean up and it has a large chute so you can fit 3 regular sized carrots at once or 3 medium-sized apples or oranges without any need to cut them. A nice added bonus is that it comes with a stainless steel exterior so you don’t have to worry about those nasty stains which you can get from juicing vegetables.
The Breville 800JEXL never gets out of balance because it’s an ejection style juicer. When it comes to its juicing efficiency, it actually does a great job of extracting every bit of juice because it has a very powerful motor. You can even use it as an attractive display in your counter because of its sleek design. This juicer doesn’t produce a significant amount of heat and the juice produced is a bit warmer. The temperature change is not that huge but you can notice it. You can use two speeds: low and high. The low speed works great with cucumbers, broccoli, tomatoes, etc. While the high speed is perfect for carrots, apples, celery, sweet potatoes, etc. But people said that the Breville 800JEXL isn’t your best pick for juicing those leafy greens or wheatgrass.
The instructions for setting up the Breville 800JEXL are clearly well-written so you’re going to have a breeze in putting it together. When it comes to the juicer’s speed, I have to give you a warning because you’re going to have so much fun in using it that you’d actually forget how much juice you’ve made in just a short time.

Cons – The biggest concern for most people about the Breville 800JEXL is their limited warranty period which is only 1-3 years (other related juicers go as high as 15 years). However, they said that the attractive features were more than enough reason to give Breville 800JEXL a shot.
Some people are also saying that it’s noisy when it’s juicing but that’s not entirely the case. It’s not as quiet as the Green Power juicer but it’s certainly not annoying.
You will definitely feel confident that you’ve made the right choice when you purchased the Breville 800JEXL. A lot of the people who bought this juicer have owned juicers of different classes and they all rated the Breville 800JEXL at the top. The price is expensive but it’s actually nothing when you compare it to the cost of what you’re going to put in it.
Overall, you’re going to love this juicer. It’s really fast as the manufacturer claims, very easy to clean up and makes great-tasting juices at high yields. It compares very favorably with more expensive, top of the line juicers.
Let me show you want the current owners to have to say about it:
After having my neighbor do some juicing for me I decided to find out what she was using. She told me that she purchased a Breville juicer about two years ago and that she would not use any other machine. I decide to do some research on the brand and found it to be rated very high. Since it has arrived I been juicing away. Great product!
