Breville 800JEXL Review
Performance: Powerful, Heavy-Duty and Efficient
Regarded as the 'Rolls Royce' of juicers, the 800JEXL centrifugal juicer was designed to thrive in the kind of heavy-duty juice extraction medium-to-big families demand to support their everyday healthy living.
To ensure the juicer produces consistently high performance, it is equipped with a heavy-duty 1000-watt motor with two speeds that support both hard and soft ingredients. When you want to juice hard fruits and vegetables, the 13,000 RPM speed handles this process fluidly.
And for juicing softer ingredients, you can switch to the 6,500 RPM speed mode and the machine will ton down its power while still maximizing grinding efficiency for consistent results.
Speedy outcomes are not just the function of a powerful motor, but juicer’s extra-wide feed chute. At 3 inches in width, the chute will accommodate large fruits and vegetables whole so that you don’t have to waste any time preparing or cutting them.
If you’re juicing apples, for instance, tennis-ball-sized ones will pass through quite easily. Then, when they enter the juicer’s patented direct central feed system, maximum juice extraction is achieved. So far, it is possible to see just how efficient the system gets even before the juice has been extracted.
Efficient extraction is made possible by the high-performance micro mesh filter, which boasts of a staggering 40,000 pores that guarantee optimum juice and nutrient extraction, smoothness, and sweetness.
When it comes to actual juice collection, you get a generous 43-ounce juice jug, which has a froth separator to ensure that only fresh juice that’s free of debris and froth gets into your glass, with all the nutrients intact. For pulp collection, the juicer offers an even larger 123-ounce container with an integrated handle to allow easy installation and extraction during use.
There is a robust safeguard built into this tool to prevent potential damage from overloading and overheating. An overload protection system intervenes to automatically shut down the machine when it detects overheating.
In case overload protection is tripped, simply unplug the unit, allow a few minutes for it to cool, then press the overload button on the motor’s base, and resume using the appliance.
Design & Construction: Elegant Metallic Finish
Because this juicer is metallic, Breville capitalized on this material and applied a brushed stainless finish on it. Not only is this finish elegant, but it also complements most of your other kitchenware and appliances.
Another design enhancement you’ll love from this juicer is its enhanced accessibility. You will not be assembling many components just to make a glass of juice. The chute is ready to use and the pulp container just requires simple alignment and you can have your juice effortless.
For an appliance you may end up using almost every day for a lifetime, its build quality should be a top priority. And the 800JEXL does not disappoint when it comes to ruggedness and durability.
The main housing is made of dies cast steel, which is admittedly strong and even rare. Not many consumer juicers feature this material. Expect this one to handle all sorts of intensive use without straining its structural integrity.
It’s not just the housing that has been built to last. The internal components that handle most of the workload are also metallic. The Nutri Disc is made using titanium-reinforced stainless, and so it is the micro mesh filter basket. The blades on this disc stay sharper for longer and will not wear off.
Now, it’s worth noting that since the juicer is a large and high-capacity one, it weighs 14.4 pounds, which is not very light. Also, it is not the most compact and you may find that it eats up quite a chunk of your counter space, but all that is justified for such as the heavy-duty unit.
Loudness: Consistent with the Power Output
When you consider the combination of power and grinding motion that this juicer outputs, expect it to be notably loud especially as you squeeze down the fruit using the food pusher and the blades kick in.
When operating at the highest 13,000 RPM speed, the juicer is louder than a blender, so it’s best if you don’t juice late in the night or early in the morning otherwise, you’ll be waking some people up.
But to be brutally honest, the loudness of this juicer is within the acceptable range and you do, eventually, get used to the noise especially if you’ll be using it daily.
Ease of Cleaning: Simplified and Fast
You’d think that cleaning such a sizable unit is tedious, but to your delight, it isn’t. A lot of work went into simplifying this task for you.
To start with, you’ll be pleased to know that some of the accessories you get with your juicer include a cleaning brush that is very handy. You can use the brush to remove residue froth from the juicer’s crevices. For this task, use the spatula side of the brush.
You can then slot the rest of the parts into the top shelf of your dishwasher and it should finish the cleaning job with a touch of thoroughness, as you sit back and enjoy your juice.
There’s just one component, the stainless-steel micro-mesh filter, which cannot go into the dishwasher. To clean this one, start by brushing the outside of the mesh, and then proceed to brush the inside as well.
Here are some handy cleaning tips that will make your life easier with the 800JEXL. First, it’s advisable that you clean your juicer after every use. And second, consider getting the Breville Clean and Green Biodegradable Pulp Container Bag, for collecting and disposing of pulp efficiently.
Price: Commercial-Grade Value at a Bargain
The 800JEXL is, by no means, cheap. But the value you’re getting for about $300 makes this price almost sound like a bargain. It is reflective of the commercial-grade performance the juicer offers.
What gives you even more confidence is getting one of these is the fact that you’ll probably never have to upgrade your juicer or constantly worry about gradual wear.
A brushed stainless-steel body and internal components of a similar material ensure that no matter the intensity of juicing, these components will never wear out.
Also, the capacities of this juicer are superior, so that you can prepare large juice quantities even for big families. When it comes to quality, no other tops this juicer.
A high-performance, durable, and high-capacity juicer that can deliver on the daily demands of a large healthy family.
800JEXL’s 1000-watt motor ensures consistently smooth performance even in the most demanding juicing tasks, while a metallic build guarantees a lifetime of service from this high-capacity family juicer.
