Should you choose this juicer?
The Breville Juice Fountain Elite isn’t just a high quality industrial grade juicer; it’s something of a work of art. Its designers set out to create a juicer that had as few parts as possible, rounded shapes on what parts they ended up using, and extremely well-designed construction throughout. The juicer is made from stainless steel and zinc/aluminum compounds and the entire unit is die cast to ensure a lifetime of efficient, practical use. However, despite these exceptional materials and craftsmanship the Breville Juice Fountain Elite only comes with a standard 1year warranty, which means that potential buyers should learn as much as they can about it prior to making a decision.
-The Juicing Quality
Most people who are “on the fence” about the Breville Juice Fountain Elite only need to see it in operation once or twice to be convinced of its vast superiority compared to other commercial-grade blenders. In fact, the Fountain Elite model was developed in response to requests from juice bars in the United Kingdom who wanted smaller, more efficient units for their establishments without resorting to using household appliances that couldn’t possibly stand up to the test of time in a commercial application.
One of the most important things about any juicer is that it makes great juice leaving little waste. When you examine the pulp pushed out in the basket the pulp is moist but not sopping wet. It does a very good job extracting the juice from the fruit or vegetable.
The Breville Juice Fountain Elite was developed in response to the need of a quality compact juicer that gets the job done and is today used in as many residences as juice bars and restaurants – and with good reason.
The Breville Juice Fountain Elite boasts some pretty impressive specifications: operating at 1000 watts with speeds as high as 13,000 RPM, this juicer makes very short work of most fruits and vegetables, rendering a dense cup of ingredients into nutritious juice in a matter of seconds. While this juicer is still relatively new on the market, Breville juicer reviews often report that the machine overall is ten times faster than comparable models and produces 30% – 40% more juice when used properly.
Unfortunately the Breville Juice Fountain Elite is a fairly noisy machine that is large and bulky for small kitchens. This makes its operation in juice bars somewhat difficult, although the Breville machines are undoubtedly quieter than the other industrial machines that were in use within the last several years. However, as this is generally the only complaint that consumers have with this juicer, it seems like this is a completely acceptable, minor annoyance when compared to all of the health and time-saving benefits that this juicer brings to the table. And it doesn’t keep us from using ours.
Some other benefits and features that make the Breville juicer one of the best in the industry include:
*Titanium cutting disc and blade
*Dual speed motor to handle hard and soft foods
*Extra large 3 inch feed tube (not much cutting needed)
*40,000 pores stainless steel filter results=exceptionally smooth, clear and fresh juice
*Automatically ejects pulp for continuous operation
Breville juicers are easy to clean as most parts are safe to put in the top rack of a residential dishwasher. The entire unit consists of just four parts that are purposefully rounded for easier cleaning. And because the housing and all components are crafted of extremely dense materials, there’s little chance for scratches, dents and chips that can make cleanup of your juicer a nightmare.
The Breville Juice Fountain Elite is one of our top picks because it is affordable, fairly easy to clean, and it gets the job done leaving little waste. We love it and own one ourselves.
