Sleek and Simple Design
The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor is the lower wattage juicer in the Juice Fountain Plus line, but it is still a powerful juicing machine that can stand up to vigorous daily use. It has a small footprint on the countertop and looks sleek and clean. The dial is so simple that you will never wonder how to use it – there are simply two speeds depending on the texture of the produce you are juicing.
Easy To Live With
The extra-large chute on this machine will be one of your favorite features. You can feed many fruits and vegetables directly into the Breville JE98XL without even having to chop them at all. Cutting prep time to a bare minimum is really important to be able to juice on a regular basis. Also, the easy to remove parts are dishwasher safe and the juicer comes with brush that makes it easy to clean the filter between uses.
In addition to the cut of prep time offered by the extra wide 3” chute, this juicer is very fast when it comes to actually working through the produce when you add it. You’ll have your juice ready in mere minutes, and that’s an important factor in actually being able to juice regularly.
Juices Greens Better than Competition
Juicing green vegetables like spinach is a very healthy way to get great nutrition. Unfortunately, many juicers can’t really handle the leaves and end up spitting them into the pulp bucket without sending much juice out. The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt is the exception. It will juice leafy greens like a champion.
Stability on the Countertop
For such a high powered juicer, it’s nice to know that this one stays very stable and steady. It won’t wobble or shake around, even when working through really hard veggies at a fast rate.
Might Make a Countertop Mess
If you are planning to juice things that have a lot of water, this juicer may end up making a mess on the counter. Because it does go fast, some of the water from higher content produce ends up spraying from the pulp outlet. You can lay some paper towels down, but the mess may be a big deal when used daily.
Can Clog at the Pulp Bin
The pulp bin outlet can get clogged, and if you aren’t paying attention when this happens, pulp will begin to overflow into your juice. Keep the outlet clear and this will not be an issue.
The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor is a good lower power model for everyday juicing. While there can be some issues regarding the pulp outlet such as water spraying and clogging, the overall design is excellent. It works well for all produce, even leafy greens and the two speed setting makes it simple to use.
