Review – BLACK and DECKER JE2400BD


 

Centrifugal juicers are popular as they are fast and powerful and the BLACK and DECKER JE2400BD is no exception.  Powered by a 400 Watt motor this juicer makes short work of your fruit and vegetable ingredients, separating fresh juice from the pulp, which is collected in a separate provided container.

Relatively inexpensive, this juicer feature Stainless steel blades and mesh screen which is good news for clean up and hygienic reasons.  A large pulp container means you can juice much longer before having to empty the pulp.  Feeding the juicer is by a small chute which some say is a disadvantage, however others find the process of cutting and juicing to be therapeutic and don’t mind spending a few more minutes preparation time.

Alternating hard and softer ingredients is the best way to ensure trouble free feeding on these type of machines as it helps to prevent clogging of the mesh.  Another  tip when juicing leafy vegetables is to roll the leaf up tightly then the machine shreds it easily and produces more juice.

√ TIP – With any juicer we recommend using as little pressure as possible when using the pusher. This allows the machine to operate efficiently and avoids clogging and wasting time – just relax and enjoy your juicing!

Juice Quality and Yield

The juice quality is good though not exceptional.  As with other centrifugal juicer types there is a fair amount of foaming and some pulp remains in the juice, however it is minimal.  If you plan to drink the juice soon after juicing then any oxidation brought about by the foaming is not really an issue.  It handles hard fruits and vegetables well and will juice leafy greens, however it is not the best machine for leafy greens and can produce more waste than a masticating type juicer.  The pulp that is ejected from the juicer is fairly dry, but not as dry as a masticating juicer.  The trade-off here is that centrifugal machines are much faster whereas masticating juicers give a higher juice yield.

Noise

The BLACK and DECKER JE2400BD is not the quietest juicer but not as noisy as some blenders.  Rubberised feet help to minimise the noise and vibration.

Cleaning

The machine is easy to disassemble and assemble, use, and clean. It’s top shelf safe for the dishwasher so a no brainer if you are in a hurry, however some owners find it easy to hand clean in warm water using a fine brush for cleaning the mesh screen.  As with all juicers this machine is best cleaned immediately after juicing as any fine particles then have no time to adhere to the mesh.

√ TIP -To minimise cleaning time, line the pulp container with a produce bag to collect the pulp. Pulp can then be used for other dishes, or as compost for gardens or discard in your normal waste or bio waste bin.

Our Verdict


This juicer is inexpensive but performs well and may well be the best juicer to buy for an all round solid introduction to juicing.  As noted in our review it handles most fruit and vegetables well, however if you are intending to mainly produce juice from leafy greens then it is not the best choice and one of the masticating juicers would be a better choice.

A two year limited warranty is good news for a model in the lower price range.  Best juicer on the market for you?  Only you can decide if it is the best centrifugal juicer to buy, but we hope our review has helped you make an informed decision.
