I can't say enough great things about this juicer. It is high quality and powerful. I have had it for close to a month and use it everyday. So glad I went with the Breville Elite. Worth every penny.

I have a Champion juicer, but after seeing the Breville demos, I decided to get a Breville. I am doing a lot of juicing, so a juicer that didn't require cutting everything into small pieces and one with a large chute that could handle greens appealed to me. I like the Breville because it simplifies juicing, is a time-saver, and the clean up is easy. I love the design and the stainless steel construction. That said, the Champion is a better juicer. With the Champion you get carrot juice and pulp that resembles sawdust. With the Breville I can squeeze the carrot pulp and get more juice. Also, pieces of veggies show up in the juice, sometimes large ones. However, for ease of use, it's a trade-off I'm willing to make. And it looks great on the counter.

After checking out reviews on the Breville, I finally decided to get one. I was delighted to find it on Zappos, one of my favorite companies. Three days after I ordered it, there it was on my doorstep - super fast delivery. A lot of thought was put into the design because it's so fast and easy to disassemble, clean, and assemble. I am impressed with the amount of juice that it extracts. This is a quality juicer. Try it, you won't be sorry.

An amazingly powerful machine that makes a LOT of juice VERY quickly. I love the big feed tube--you can pop smaller-sized whole apples in there! Extraction is very good and the pulp turns out very dry. The included foam-skimming pitcher is pretty ace. Cleans up very easily, too. Build and functionality are top notch.

This two speed juicer is great for anything other than leafy greens. I juice twice a day, usually carrots, beets, ginger, tomato, cucumber, celery, cranberries, lemon. Sometimes I throw in blueberries or pineapple or kiwi for a bit of sweet. I love the large capacity feeder tube. It is a breeze to clean, and that is a big deal to me. The enclosed brush makes quick work of the basket. While I wish I could do greens, I am happy to do everything else!

This machine juices very well and I find it easy to clean. Make sure you are quick on the plunger when juicing beets and other dark red fruits and veggies it will spray some splatter on the counter tops. Perfect size for two people.

I did a lot of research before finally committing to purchase the Breville 800JEXL Elite Juicer. After realizing I was going to continue juicing, I decided to retire my old, cheap Elite juicer and get something more substantial. This juicer is large and heavy but snazzy enough to leave out on the counter as an appliance. The unit is well made; sturdy, easy to assemble parts. The main reason why I decided to get a better juicer was to reduce the waste, which I saw a lot of with my previous juicer. After watching a video clip of Martha Stewart using this juicer, and seeing how dry the pulp was, I was sold. I experiment by using challenging ingredients like spinach, celery, zucchini, orange, kiwi fruit, pineapple, grapes (which by the way, makes a great tasting juice) and set the speed to slow. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the ingredients yielded about 25% more juice than the Elite juicer, but was disappointed to see that the pulp, although not as slushy, was not as dry as I hoped it would be. Squeezing the pulp produced more juice. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I anticipated seeing much drier remains. I decided to process the same ingredients with the setting on "high" to see if it would make a difference. While the pulp consistency was the same, I discovered that processing soft items (like pineapple and oranges) produces more foam and some of the spinach whipped through without being processed. Luckily the juice container has a great foam separator that eliminates the foam as you pour. The lesson here is to use the proper speed for what you're juicing. Overall, I'm still satisfied with this juicer. I feel that it does produce a lot of juice, it's well made, easy to clean (the brush that's provided makes cleaning the filter basket a snap), pretty quiet (Note: the "low" setting is very quiet while the "high" setting is much louder), and nice looking. It's well worth the price.

I love this juicer! It has a powerful motor and has taken on every fruit and veggie I put through it. If you're looking to have some pulp in your juice, then this one is not for you!

I read numerous reviews of juicers before deciding on the Breville Juicer. I decided to order it through Zappos because of the free shipping! I have been thrilled with the Breville Juicer. It is easy to use, easy to clean, fits on my kitchen counter perfectly, and makes great juice!

This is by far the best juicer I have ever used. I have tried fasting using other juicers and did not have near as much success as with the Breville.

This is amazing! It has made the transition into a healthier life style so much easier. Someone tried to tell me that I would not get any juice from an apple (based on their experience with a different juicer) and we are able to get about 3oz of juice from 1 apple! It cuts through everything. It arrived in lightning fast speed as always.

It works great, all the juice comes out of the fruits and vegetables, only very dry pulp is left. Easy to clean, easy to use.

I'm very happy with this juicer. Prep is easy because the machine accepts large chunks of produce. Cleanup is also easy. I have better results with carrots, cucumbers, and apples than with leafy greens, which don't give much juice.

I was hesitant to buy because of the price but after reading all the reviews I decided to go for it. And I love it! The juicer does an amazing job and the fresh juice is awesome. The juicer is big and heavy to move around but love that I can just rinse and wipe everything down and it is good to go next time. The juice comes out virtually pulp free. And love that it is as fresh as you can get for juice. Am extremely pleased with the purchase!

I have loved this juicer from day one! It is very efficient and really seems get every drop of juice. It is fairly easy to clean, the only time consuming part is cleaning the mesh center piece. Overall, I am very pleased. It is solid in structure and should last a long time.

The Breville 800JEXL is the gold standard of all juicers in my opinion. I have owned and burned up three juicers in the 12 years that I have been juicing. None of them created the bang for your buck quality of juice that this juicer does. The electronic RPM control does exactly what it says it does. It adds power the instant you add load. It cleans up nicely and it looks great. Five stars all around.

I have juiced on and off for the past twenty some years. I decided to replace my first juicer (Juiceman Jr.)after watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead on Netflix, which launched me into a serious juicing adventure. The Breville 800JEXL (used in the documentary) is such an improvement over my old Juiceman. I think that it is worth the the extra money if you are going to use your juicer a lot. It is very fast (zip zip) and easy to clean (which met my first two requirements). In addition, the feeder spout is twice as big as the one on the Juiceman, the pulp is a bit drier, and it comes with a pitcher equipped with a foam reducer. It is also good looking and not a problem to leave out on the counter. It is loud, but not obnoxious. You have to be careful to place the pulp catcher correctly or pulp will fly all over the kitchen. Finally, even though this seems like a peculiar item to buy from an online shoe store, I was pleased to see it show up on Zappos site. I like Zappos much better than Amazon. I love the return policy and customer service, and my shipping is usually upgraded (I got it within two days). So even though the Breville was a little less on Amazon, I went with Zappos. It is funny that I need to rate the comfort and style, but I went with all 5's because I think you will know what I mean. I like this product.
