The Breville BJE200XL Compact Juicer has a 700-watt motor, operates at with a unique Cyclonic Juicing System at 14,000 RPM and has a powerful filter and cutter system — all available for as little as $155 which is a very low cost of juicer. The dual knife assembly means fruit and vegetables are centered over the cutter and filter, for improved extraction.
For added convenience, there is no need to chop, slice, dice or peel your foods; simply drop them into the feed tube and let the juicer do all the work. This allows you to extract juice from whole fruits and vegetables, and even pineapple with the rind still on.
If you think you need to spend hundreds of dollars to get the best juicer, many users of the Breville BJE200XL will disagree. One user, who juices at least once a day as part of a raw food diet, describes this machine as first rate. He highlights the fact that it is so powerful, you do not often have to use the pusher (although it is advisable to use it to cover the top of the feeder when juicing soft fruits to stop it from spurting out). Another positive aspect of this juicer is the design; reviewers find it extremely user-friendly, down to the molded loop on the plug. When it comes to cleanup, it seems it could not be quicker. One user describes it as a two-minute operation, and so easy to clean it is not even worth using the dishwasher (although all removable parts are dishwasher safe).
As with all juicers there are some areas that could be improved upon, such as the wetness of the pulp and some problems with a couple of the parts. All users agree that when it comes to juicing, the drier the pulp is, the more juice will be there for drinking. While the pulp from this juicer is perhaps not as dry as from other models, most users are still impressed with the amount of juice is extracts overall, so this does not appear to be a real cause for concern. One user reports that after using the machine for a few weeks she noticed that juice was collecting in a small area at the bottom of the pulp collector — this was impossible to clean and did not come out after soaking. This is likely to be a simple manufacturing error, as it does not seem to be a common problem. Another user found that the filter’s mesh net tore after 18 months of use. Again, this could be down to a fault or too much wear and tear. In general, the reviews for this juicer are extremely positive, with some users reporting that they have used it on a regular basis for years and found it to be faultless.
