Review – Breville BJE200XL 700 Watt Juice Fountain


Centrifugal juicers are fast and very popular with juicing enthusiasts who lead a busy lifestyle.  The Breville BJE200XL 700 Watt Juice Fountain will appeal to anyone who values their time, as it is a fast and powerful machine.  As with several recent designs the Breville BJE200XL features a generous wide feed chute which cuts down on preparation time.  Small fruits can be fed in whole and other larger items require minimal cutting.

Operation is simplistic – a single on off switch and no other settings to worry about, making it an ideal juicer for beginners.  The juicer operates at high speed, the 700 watt motor spins the cutting blades at around 13,000 RPM.  This is good from a time saving point of view but like other centrifugal juicers has one drawback.  

Small fruits can be fed in whole and other larger items require minimal cutting.

High speed introduces air and oxidises the juice, and also creates quite a bit of foam, however the machine comes with a generous juice jug that has a foam separator.  How much oxidation is difficult to quantify, however for the price point and if you drink your juice soon after juicing then it is not too much of an issue. Small fruits can be fed in whole and other larger items require minimal cutting.

The machine has non slip feet and in operation does not move around much.  One drawback of this machine is that it does not have a separate pulp container.  The pulp collects inside the machine and if doing a long juicing session then the juicer needs to be opened and the pulp removed.  You also need to keep the feed chute covered when juicing to avoid splashes.

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.  Juicing leafy produce such as Kale can be troublesome with this machine.  For best results with leafy greens roll the leaf up tightly and place in the feed chute with other hard fruits, then the machine shreds it more efficiently and produces more juice.

√ TIP – As 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 for a machine at this price but as noted above there is quite a lot of foam and oxidation.  This juicer produces a good yield, especially from the harder fruits and vegetables such as apple, carrot, celery etc.  The pulp that is ejected from the juicer is fairly dry, but not as dry as a masticating juicer.

Noise

Relatively noisy as far as centrifugal machines go, as loud as a large blender.  This is not one to use when the family are aslseep!

Cleaning

The machine is easy to disassemble and assemble.  The manufacturers advise that it’s top shelf safe for the dishwasher, however some users have reported that the pusher has warped after washing in the dishwasher.  We suspect that could be due to placing it in the lower part of the dishwasher.  As with all juicers we feel this machine is best cleaned immediately after juicing and therefore we recommend hand washing the parts in warm water.  Pay particular attention to cleaning the mesh and blades with the supplied brush to prevent any fine particles from clogging the screen.

√ TIP – Finish your juicing session with hard vegetables such as carrots.  This pushes the softer fruit pulp through the mesh and makes the clean up easier.

Our Verdict


This Breville juicer is an inexpensive, fast and easy to operate juicer that performs well for the cost.  It may well be the best juicer to buy if you are budget conscious or just wanting to try juicing out.  As noted in our review it handles most fruit and vegetables well.  If you are intending to mainly produce juice from leafy greens then it is not the best choice, perhaps one of the masticating juicers would be a better choice for you.

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.
