When it comes to juicers, there are various models on the market that offer a variety of features. The Breville 800JEXL is a centrifugal juicer constructed from metal, giving it a strong and stable build. The following review provides detailed information about this appliance to help determine if it is an appropriate choice for an appliance.
The one feature which sets the Breville 800JEXL apart from most other juicers is its all-metal construction, making it a strong and capable product. If you juice on a daily basis or very often, this heavy duty juicer is most definitely built to last. This juicer is also suitable for a professional kitchen and is designed not to be moved around.
Compared to the Breville JE98XL, its less expensive plastic relative, the 800JEXL has a stronger motor and a faster juicing time of fewer than two minutes per session, depending on how much you are juicing. Your juicing needs should determine if it is worthwhile to pay extra for this heavy duty version.
This is a very powerful juicer which can juice whole fruits, such as apples and peaches. The titanium reinforced blades operate at two speeds (6500 RPM and 13,000 RPM), making quick work of most fruits. The extra power in the motor does come with one drawback: this blender is slightly louder than most juicers.
Please note that this juicer does not give a large yield of juice when using smaller fruits such as grapes and berries, or vegetables such as spinach and cabbage.
After juicing, most of the pulp remnants usually retain an amount of juice, which you can pass through the juicer a second time for some more drippings. This pulp can also be used for cooking stocks or other types of similar food preparations.
Simplicity of Use
One of the advantages of the Breville JE98XL Juicer is that it is a product which is extremely simple to assemble, use and clean (it even comes with a multi-purpose cleaning brush). Aside from the filter, all of the parts can be cleaned in the dishwasher. However, they can also be cleaned manually with little trouble.
Another beneficial feature of this juicer is the ample-sized mouth area, which saves time by not having to chop the fruits and vegetables into small pieces to fit through the opening. Also, the one-liter jug and the three-liter pulp container ensure that you should be able to go through your juicing process without having to waste time emptying the pulp and juice often.

This is a fast and muscular juicer which is designed to be utilized on a daily basis and kept stationary at one location. In fact, this is such a well-built unit, and you also have the option of using this juicer in a commercial, professional kitchen environment. If this pricey unit is within your budget, it is worth looking into.
