The Breville 800JEXL juicer accomplishes the holy grail of most products: providing commercial performance, so that it may be used in a restaurant, while at the same time retaining home kitchen convenience.
This review will take the 800JEXL, and thoroughly sift through the chaff to give you the satisfaction of knowing the merits of this juicer against the downsides. That will help you make an intelligent decision next time you go juicer shopping.
Patented Juicing System
Why do we juice fruits and veggies? Because of the nutrients. Some fruits comprise mostly water, but it’s not water you are looking for when you put the apple in the juicing chamber. The Breville 800JEXL incorporates a patented juicing system that enables it to obtain more nutrients than other juicers. It also transfers less than 1.8F of heat to the produce, which protects the enzymes from breakdown of their cellular structures, maximizing nutrient absorption.
Positioning of Feeding Chutes
Some juicers have their feeding chutes to the side of the shredding disc. The 800JEXL is different. The feeding chute has been positioned directly above the shredding disc. This positioning makes juicing more efficient than when you introduce ingredients from the side of the shredding disc. It ensures all the produce falls will be shredded, and the process won’t take much of your time.
Dual Speed System
Different types of ingredients come with varied textures. Some are soft; some are hard. Some have tough skins. Some need to be crushed with greater force than others. The 800JEXL Juicer incorporates a dual speed system: 13,000 RPM for harder ingredients and 6,500 RPM for softer ones. This opens up a variety of produce to the juicer’s radius, including the infamous leafy greens.
Extra-wide Feed Chute
Its 3-inch wide feed chute enables users to insert whole apples and oranges into the juicer. This convenience saves them the time they would have spent in cutting up the oranges into smaller pieces before initiating the juicing process.
For safety purposes, the juicer comes with a safety locking arm mechanism. It prevents the juicer from doing anything if the cover has not been locked into place. This will prevent spillages during juicing. It also prevents little children from putting their hands into the juicer when operating, a fact that makes it even more attractive for homemakers, especially those that have small children to think of.
Cleanup is easy for two reasons:
- It comes with a cleaning brush
- All parts, bar the mesh filter basket and the food pusher, can be washed on the top shelf of your dishwasher.
The bane of most electrical appliances is overheating. Keeping this in mind, the makers of the 800JEXL have included an overload protection mechanism which automatically shuts the juicer down when the machine begins to overload. If it does not overload, it won’t overheat. If doesn’t overheat, it will last a long while.
Other features include BPA-free materials, large capacity pulp container, Nutri Disc with titanium reinforced cutting blades, and Patented direct central feed system.
It may be prone to leaking, especially when you feed fruits with high water content such as watermelon into the feed chute at a rapid rate. To avoid this, push the food pusher slower, and use the low speed when you should.
Is It Worth It?
This juicer will suit those who look for efficiency in a household appliance. It can accomplish much without overburdening itself or its user with an excess of extra features. It focuses on the primary goal of making juice and performs that task ably. I recommend it heartily.
