I absolutely love this juicer. I put off buying this juicer due to cost, although I have looked at this product for several years. I had a different variety of juicer that juicers much slower that I had read was better because it supposedly "protected" the vitamins in the juice better because it did not create so much heat. However, I disliked using that one because it took so long to cut up all the veggies and was much harder to clean. The Breville is wonderful to use, juices very fast, and is very easy and quick to clean. I absolutely love it and now have juice almost every single day.
I love the Breville Juicer. I use it every morning. It is so easy to use and the clean up is done in seconds. I would highly recommend the product and have. A week after ordering the juicer, a national magazine rated the Breville 800JEXL as the top rated juicer.
Juices fruits and vegetables quickly and with little pulp remaining. Nice large feeder opening for beets and apples. Unfortunately the plastic housing, plastic pitcher, the filter/strainer basket and the stainless basket housing all become discolored very quickly. It comes with a brush and I clean it after every use, but the (mineral?) residue is extremely difficult to remove. I tried soaking in vinegar, lemon juice, and baking soda, but nothing has completely removed it. It is a large appliance and takes up a fair amount of counter space...and now it looks ugly and dirty too. Clean up is still tedious because of the 5 parts that need to be cleaned each time (every juicer out there is hard to clean), just remember to put a bag in the pulp container so you don't have to clean that part. I do love this juicer though, it does a great job.
