I am a personal trainer, so as you can imagine, I consume a very well-balanced diet. In fact, each morning before I start my work out regiment, I like to enjoy a fresh glass of wholesome and healthy juice.
While I know that you can certainly buy nutrient-packed juices from the supermarket, I prefer to make them myself. You see, to me, there is nothing healthier than juice that is directly made from fresh ingredients. That being said, I have been making my own juice for a while now. When my old juicer (which was the first one I ever bought) finally gave out on me, I started my search for a new one.
I didn’t want to settle for any old juicer; I wanted one that would be really simple to use, that would make my drinks quickly and that would create a delicious and nutritious beverage. I asked other personal trainers that I know for their opinions, and I also did some research on my own, and all arrows pointed to the Breville Juicer.
After purchasing the Breville Juicer and using it for about a month, I have to say that this appliance is exceptional. Not only is it easy to use, but it also makes an exceptional product. I use this juicer everyday and I am more than pleased with it.
Features of the Breville Juicer
- It has an incredible 850-watts of power
- 2-speed electronic control; a low speed for soft ingredients and a high speed for denser ingredients
- A patented micro mesh basket
- Large-sized feed chute, which whole fruits and vegetables can easily fit through
- A professional juice extractor that adjusts to the amount of ingredients
- 1-liter juice jug with a froth separator
- 2 ½ liter removable pulp container
- 1 year warranty
How it Works
The 850-watts of power behind the Breville Juicer really make this appliance exceptional. In order to use it, all you have to do is insert your fruits and vegetables into the feed chute. Once the ingredients are added, the juicer’s micro mesh filter, which spins at an amazing 14,000 RPMs, will pull the juices out of the fruits and vegetables. The froth separator and the pulp container collect all of the fibers and seeds from the fruits and vegetables, leaving you with a finished product that is completely smooth. If you are juicing soft fruits and vegetables, like strawberries and oranges, set the machine to low speed. For denser ingredients, like kale and carrots, set the juicer to high.
If you want to make your juice quickly, which I usually do, since I make them first thing in the morning, you don’t have to worry about chopping your ingredients first; since the feed chute is so wide, you can fit whole fruits and vegetables right in. Plus, since the juicer is so powerful, you can make an 8-ounce glass of juice in just 5 seconds, which impresses me each and every time that I use it.
Clean up after using the Breville Juicer is also a snap. Simply take apart the juicer and you can toss all of the components that need to be washed right into the dishwasher. The fact that it is dishwasher safe is another perk that I really like, since I am always on the go.
Advantages and Disadvantages
As with all appliances, there is always a good side and a bad side, and the same is true for the Breville Juicer. Here is a look at some of the pros and cons that I found with this juicer:
- Exceptionally powerful.
- Super easy to clean.
- Makes juice at lightning speed.
- Two speeds.
- Extra large food chute, which can fit full-sized fruits and vegetables.
- Fully extracts juices from fibers.
- While the plastic is very durable, it does still tend to stain a bit.
- Though the juicer does come with a warranty, it is only offered for 1 year.
Where to Buy
You can purchase the Breville Juicer from a variety of places, including fine retailers and online stores, as well as directly from the Breville website. In my honest opinion, however, I wouldn’t suggest buying the juicer from anywhere else other than directly from the website. The reason I suggest this is because when you buy it directly from the retailer, you can be sure that you are buying an authentic juicer and that you will be backed by the warranty (even if the warranty is short, it is still a good thing to have.)
As I mentioned, I have been making my own juice for quite some time. I am over the moon with the quality of this appliance and the juice that it produces. With the Breville Juicer, I know that I am getting a highly nutritious and an extremely delicious beverage each and every time I use it. What could be better than that? If you are interested in making great tasting and healthy juices, than I highly recommend the Breville Juicer.
