I noticed that most of the reviews mentioned how fast it makes juice, how beautiful it looked on the counter and how easy it is to clean. All of this is very true. But very few mentioned that the remaining pulp is dry. This is what I was looking for - a juicer that doesn't leave a lot of juice in the pulp. I found that the remaining pulp was very wet with the juice that I wanted to drink. I also found that it produced a lot of foam. For this reason I am going to return it.
I spent a long time researching juicers and the Juice Fountain Elite 8000JEXL by Breville is the one that consistently garnered great reviews. I can see why. I'm delighted with this product. It juices fruit and vegetables very efficiently, very quickly, and it's easy to operate and to clean. Most parts are dishwasher safe. A small brush is included for making sure the filter is free of debris when you're cleaning it. Further, by lining the pulp bin with plastic bags either recycled from the grocery store or purchased specifically for the Breville juicer, clean-up is that much easier. The main parts are stainless steel, making the machine not only sturdier but attractive on the counter. It does have rather a large footprint and height (I measure it at 16 3/4 inches tall). It fits under my standard cabinets but I feel it is too big and bulky for me to store in a cabinet and to hoist out daily.) That's not a deal breaker in my book, but it might be an important consideration for someone else. The only negative comment that I have is that it's loud, but it juices so rapidly that the noise is not problematical. If you're serious about juicing, then I would definitely recommend this product.
This is the best juicer I have ever owned. I got it for a great price too! Clean up of the machine is easy. The design of this machine is great. It takes less time to juice than any other juicer I've ever owned. I get more juice than from other machines. The debri is very dry and can be used in many dishes or for composting too. Best purchase I've made all year.
I've had this juicer for 5 months now. Before I purchased this juicer, I was using a **** ****** juicer. There was nothing wrong with the***** ******* juicer, and when I bought the Breville, I wondered what I was paying $XXX for other then the great reviews it had. I've found out. It's really powerful and does an really good job making juice. I'm glad I treated myself to it.
This juicer, the Fountain Elite, has to be the best juicer since the original Omega (white) came into the market in the early 80's. I gve the Omega which still works to my daughter in law and truting the Omega brand I ordered the 'Masticating' jiuicer. Who on this earth came up with this idea? who can prove to me that this masticating system is better?oh...yeah...the centrifugal juicer kills the nutrients because it heats the juice!!! how can this happen when the juice comes out as fast as a bullet!! I guess companies need to experiment to make more sales. MY suggestion is stay with the Centrifugal Juicer for several reasons...and if your budget allows it, go with the Fountain Elite...the cheaper version just doesn't work, I returned it last year...it broke the first time I used it and the juice of the fruit wasn't squeezed as good as with the orignal Omega. My juicer, the Breville, arrived on Monday and I have been using it since them. If we compare this juicer with the masticating by Omega, you are making the same comparison between a Lexus and a Toyota Corolla. The Breville is a good looking machine made all of stee...the cheaper version looked like stainless steel but it was plastic. What can I tell you? I raised my three boys on home made juices.........sure, I pay more for food but I am making an investment in my heath. My granddaughter asks for apple juice, and voila!!! i peel the apple and in seconds she has her apple juice. I use this juicer mainly for veggi juice..........sometimes I want to have a smoothie and for this I use my Vita Mix where no pulp is ever wasted. It all depends what is your mood in the day. The advantage of this juicer is that the chute is really wide, you can put a whole lemon through it, not possible with the masticating BS system where you had to cut the fruits or veggies very thinly...and sometimes the fruit lodged at the end of the chute and you had to dismantle the whole machine....the maticating juice claims to make pasta, well I have a pasta maker...claims to make butters, so does the Vita Mix...so if a juicer is what you want, go for this one....the Fountain Elite!!! Best, Oh....it was suggested by one of my best friends who has been enjoying it for the last 5 years...................
The Breville 800 JEXL is all it is claimed to be. My only concern was with the spray back received when feeding dense fruits and veggies with too much force. Then I found out I didn't have the pulp container seated correctly. Now all is well and I am happily, and quickly, juicing daily and loving it!
I purchased this juicer after my other juicer was getting worn. Wow! This was quite a bit more than the last juicer I purchased but I plan on juicing on a daily basis. This juicer is just like one I used to buy juice from at a local health food store! It is quick, has two speeds, so depending on what you are juicing makes it so efficient. I was amazed at how easily it juiced a beet as this was usually really quite hard to juice with my last juicer. If you are serious about juicing GET THIS One. Easy clean up too- which for me, is a huge plus :)
I am a beginner on juicing so I am not sure how important my opinion will be on the product. It is made well and I bought it after looking at what seemed to be a million. My neighbor has been juicing for a while and this is the one she had so I bought it. I love it so far.
Great product. Have a large space on your counter tho as this is a large piece of equipment . Do use a plastic bag to collect the pulp. Saves washing the cannister. After use, I just rinse all the pieces in very hot water and they are like new. The basket you have to brush tho. I have tried many combos of fruits and vegetables, all good. Someone said to run the pulp through the second time and I will try that. You will get even more juice. You can only make so many muffins from the pulp so this is a good idea. Great way to add more vegs to your diet.

The machine itself (metal/stainless steel) appears to be high quality. The plastic container that catches the juice is VERY THIN plastic and feels fragile. I wish this was made of better quality material. Otherwise, the way the machine functions is very efficient and MUCH easier to use than most other juicers--which is why I got it.

Easiest to clean juicer for the high output. Juicer works fine on slow speed even! Wow, what a fine machine. I will buy from this manufacturer again and recommend this as the first juicer you ever buy. Note, I also have a Viatmix Machine (and some comparable whole juice Mixers for certain recipes and then some...) Great to finally have an extractor that did not cost too much for the value.
