I have used a couple of juicers, but this one is definitely a great machine. It is the fastest juicer I have ever seen. They thought of everything, an electrical plug with a finger hole in it, a brush with one end to clean the strainer and the other to scrape the pulp container. It is a breeze to clean afterwards. I just love it. The sound of it is not loud. I just can't say enough about this machine. I love it. I find myself juicing much more than I ever thought I would!

Surprised by other reviews...Quite disappointed with mine. Will try it one more time and then may return it. I need copious amounts of veggies to get one glass of juice and there are large chunks left when I'm finished. I think it's a classic case of you get what you pay for. Will probably break down and buy much more expensive one.

This Juicer is great, for a person who grew up with juicing I've seen all kinds of juicers from a few well up a hefty price, some that were around the same price as this one so I know that in comparison while this isn't a pro one it works just as well for every day use! Its practical and easy to clean only depending on what vegetable your are juicing the cavity that keeps the flesh fills up rather quickly or maybe I'm just juicing too many vegetables at once, its not too bad but it is something that I have to do if I'm juicing more than 32 oz.

After doing extensive research and reading a lot of reviews, I settled on the Breville Juice Fountain. It has a relatively small footprint and looks good. It is sturdy and powerful. The best thing is that it is extremely easy to clean, coming apart easily and going back together easily. The cons for me may be inherent in all juicers of this type, but there is a lot of waste. I find nearly whole slices of apple, leaves of kale and chunks of citrus in the waste pulp compartment after juicing. Considering how much kale, for example, I put through the machine, I get mere drops of juice, and it seems wrong to be dumping out so much produce that has been shredded up. Sometimes I'll run the pulp back through the machine to give it another go. The other downside is the amount of debris (bits of produce) that comes flying out of the chute when you add more to the machine. You add your fruits and veggies and use the plunger to get it down to the business end, then lift the plunger to add more and you get sprayed with bits of pulp. I have to wipe down my kitchen in the vicinity of the juicer after each use, and I have to pick bits of it out of my hair and off my clothes! I try to be careful, allow the machine to deposit the pulp into the pulp compartment before lifting the plunger, but stuff still comes out. If you lift the plunger out of the way enough to add more, you're likely to get hit. I love my juice and use this machine at least twice a day - the kids use it too - but I may want to invest in a pricier machine for more efficient juicing.

I use it every morning to make unpasturized, fresh juice. Except for a little scrubbing you have to do with the provided brush on the mesh grater, cleanup is pretty easy. There is a little froth in the juice, but it is acceptable to me for the ease of use and quickness of juice making. There is a little bit of a learning curve as you learn to juice the hardest things like carrots last and the juiciest things like oranges, grapes, strawberries first. Learning to put the juiciest things in first and putting the pusher on (before even starting it up) is a good idea. Little tricks like putting your finger on the hole where the juice comes out when disassebmling to clean and using a finger to hold the lid on the pitcher when pouring are learned as you use it and encounter little messes. I have bought one for my daughter now because I am very pleased with the product. Cheers!

Brands I'd also recommend: Komo Grain Mill, Cuisinart Food Processor, KitchenAid Mixer, Merrill Shoes

Do not be mislead by the positive reviews! I have been searching for a decent economically priced juicer for a long time now. I finally settled on the Breville compact due to all the positive reviews on this web site and others. Unfortunately, I did not pay close attention to the negative ones. Why did I give this machine one star? The reason is quite simple: it cannot be properly cleaned and is unsanitary. Regardless of how the appliance performs in other aspects, if it cannot be thoroughly cleaned due to its design, then it is useless. Unless, of course, you're a fan of food poisoning. The problem with these juicers is a design flaw in the basket/cutter assembly. The assembly is made up of three parts that are held together with three small screws. The screws secure the plastic base to the strainer bowl and the cutting disc. The juice seeps through the clearances between the plastic base and the cutting disc (because of poor mating tolerances). This requires the assembly to be disassembled in order for the juice debri to be cleaned out. Otherwise, there is no possible way to completely clean food from the assembly. It was not intended to be cleaned that way. I highly doubt this problem is rare and I would bet that if you inspect yours after juicing, you'll find the same problem. It is a manufacturer's defect. Yes, the juicing performance is good, but what does that matter if you can't make the juice in a sanitary way? If you look through reviews on other sites, (Amazon) you'll see that others have noticed this flaw.

I didn't realize how much work juicing requires. There's a lot of prep and clean up involved. For anyone considering a new juicing hobby, keep in mind that it takes roughly a half hour from start to finish to make about 16 oz. of juice. As for this juicer, I cannot complain, considering most juicers operate the same way and this one seems built better than others I looked at in this price range. The pulp is very dry after the first couple vegetables, but after the strainer becomes a bit clogged, the pulp will be moist. I recommend that you remove the strainer and brush it off for every 3 or so vegetables/fruits that you run through it. There's no need to spend twice as much to get a juicer with a pulp receptacle and variable speeds.

This little machine has changed my life! So well worth its price, and the quickest setup. I was juicing right away! Clean up is super easy just as long as you do it right away you only need to rinse it with warm water. It's incredible the amount of fruits and veggies that you can drink in just one cup!

Probably not the best for if you plan to juice more than a few days a week but it gets the job done. Chute splatters a bit. Overall, I'm not disappointed. It's fairly easy to clean and does not take up too much counter space. Shipped quickly and without a scratch.

Absolutely perfect. Compact. Powerful motor. Easy clean-up. Inexpensive (and free shipping). Works great on Veggies and fruits. I juice raw kale, romaine, spinach, squash, Zucchini, cucumbers, ginger root, celery, brussel sprouts, asparagus, apples, melon, grapes, strawberries, you name it. I'm on day 7 of a reboot and have lost 7 pounds. I feel great and its good knowing I'm healthy on the inside. Couldn't be more happy. Great product!

This is the best purchase that I have had in a long time. Zappos was great as well. I was kept well informed of my purchase up to delivery. Kudos to Breville and Zappos. This juicer is compact enough to not take away a lot of space in my kitchen. It is easy to clean and durable.

This juicer is the best combination between value and quality. Breville juicers are one of the best brands as far as quality in the juicing industry and this product really shows it. All the features are very well thought out and designed. It juices all my vegetables and fruits whole without a problem. Most people buy juicers and stop using them because they are such a pain to clean, but this one is super easy to clean and it takes no time at all to use, clean and put away which is keeping me motivated.

I bought this unit on the basis of many positive reviews. Glad I did! I love it! So far, it is quieter than I expected and I had a ball putting veggies and fruit in there to juice up a few glasses of nutrition which actually filled me up, usually I snack late but I have a feeling this lovely machine is going to aid in appetite control and good health! Very satisfied!

This juicer is amazing. It is the first one I have bought and I love it. I am doing a juice diet and when it comes to getting the most juice out of my fruits and veggies this works. It is a little loud when it runs, but it is comparable to a blender.

We bought this juicer based on reviews. It's a great juicer. Perfect for our needs. We juice every morning for our breakfast both fruits and veggies. It is fairly easy to clean (we mostly hand wash right after use as we know we'll need it again before we've had a chance to run the dishwasher). Yesterday we juiced a whole pineapple with the core. Yum!

I read many reviews for this juicer on Amazon but bought from Zappos because of free shipping both ways. Apparently all the problems I read about on Amazon were another model from 2007-2008. I have nothing but great things to say about this juicer. Pulp is very dry, very easy to clean, and is perfect for making juice in quantities for 3-4 people. I love it! And it was a great value!
