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.

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!

It is a wonderful juicer! Easy to use and clean, compact and modern design. I bought another one for my mother in law. One of the best purchases I've ever done. And Zappos as always perfect! I've got it next day!

This is the first juicer I've ever used and I love it. I received it as a gift for Christmas and I've made juice once if not twice a day since. It's very easy to break down and clean, goes through whole apples and pairs; no need to core them, and it even comes with a pretty handy recipe guide. I would definitely recommend this Breville to anyone looking into juicers.

I bought and love the Breville juicer! I bought it for a juice cleanse and have been pleased at the easy to clean design of this juicer. It is my first, but considering I used it 30 times in the last 10 days I would say I'm becoming an expert. It takes a bit of time to scrub the filter each time, but nothing else even needs a scrub- it just washes off. I have read that other juicers extract more liquid and leave the the pulp more dry- I wouldn't know, but I would believe it. The pulp was a bit wet, not too bad though.

I love it. Easy to use and clean up and takes up less space for those of us with not too much counter top area. Especially love Zappos no shipping cost and it got here in just a couple of days. Very, very exciting!

The best juicer ever! I had an older Breville that was amazing but larger and louder. This compact one has the same capability and is super quiet! Amazing. If you have never had a Breville, they are great and have powerful motors so no need to worry about it getting stuck. Love this compact model!

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.

It works fine and is relatively easy to clean. What I am not sure about is how efficient is it in squeezing juice out of veggies. I seem to end up with a lot of waste and sometimes a lot of uncut and unprocessed pieces of salad or carrots or strawberries. But this is my first juicer, so I will keep it for now.

This fits all right in our tiny New York City kitchen. It was still kind of huge to me considering it is a small" juicer and I had to make an ample amount of room for it in the kitchen cabinet to store all the parts. It was simple to put together and use right away. Easy to clean all the parts except the mesh tray that catches the pulp; you really need to scrub hard with the brush it came with and use warm/hot water. Juice comes out great! Juicer works easily enough. Again, it is just the clean up and storage that is a pain.

Great juicer and would recommend it in a heartbeat! I do not juice green leafy vegetables (eat them instead) so this juicer works great for fruits and most vegetables.

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!

My old juicer curled up it's toes after 10 years. This came recommended by a site called "best juicers." The Breville compact juicer works very well. I'm not sure I'd call it compact. It does take up quite a bit of room on my counter. 10" across, 14" high and 11" deep. This juicer is very easy to operate, clean and resemble to start again the next time you want to use it and it is not messy. I have arthritis in my hands and I'm always concerned that something will be to hard to snap back or operate but this juice is very easy on my hands. It has a large port to drop fruit and veggies in. I've had this juicer about 2 weeks now and use it every day. I love the handy cup that holds the juice. It might be a bit loud. More of a humming sound than a loud noise. It's not to heavy either. I recommend this juicer. It's a keeper.

I must say The Juice Fountain is my first juicer that I've purchased. I grew up drinking freshly juiced veggie and fruit juices. When I moved out of my parents house my mother gave me one of her juicers. But it was definitely a love hate relationship. Years later I finally decided I wanted the benefits of fresh juice, but I had a budget. After researching what style and price range I was interested in I purchased The Juice Fountain by Breville. I absolutely love it! I don't have a lot of container space so the compact size is ideal. It is a rather handsome juicer and the pulp is pretty dry. Juicing slowing definitely produces drier pulp. There is a heated debate regarding which is better for you, Juicing or blender. It comes down to fiber. All the fiber is in the pulp which has been separated from the juice. But I think you can have the best of both worlds. In the instruction booklet are recipes. You can juice to your hearts content and reap the benefits of the nutrients going directly into your bloodstream. Then use the recipes in the booklet to get ideas on how to use the pulp so you wouldn't lose your fiber benefits either. I am going to make some muffins and soups with mine. My juice combos varies on my mood. I have juiced cucumbers, parsley, radishes, beets, kale, apples, carrots, celery, sweet potato, bell pepper, ginger root, and spinach in some type of juice combo with relative ease. With spinach, parsley, and kale I try to make it as compact as possible before feeding it into the chute. Hard tubers like beets and sweet potatoes seems to get stuck if you don't place them in the chute in a certain way. If that does happen it seems to remedy itself with a little encouragement. The juicer is rather powerful. The noise volume is less than my old juicer and clean up is pretty easy. For my first purchased juicer I couldn't be happier!

This is an update to last nights comment that was not a review but rather a question. I tried my juicer and found it easy to operate, fast to. I bought this to replace a masticating juicer that was very expensive difficult to operate and didn't last long. The basket is easy to clean if you scrub the outside the residue washes off and then rest moves inside - then scrub the inside. I put all parts in hot soapy water first and let then sit awhile before cleaning. The only thing I do not like about it is the bulk and I have a small kitchen and was hoping it would be more compact. 9 x 17 doesn't look big in print but is huge in my tiny kitchen. To compensate I had to accept juicing was of equal if not greater importance to me then cooking and arrange my kitchen accordingly.

This is an excellent juicer. It works fast and is easy to clean. Just rinse parts out with water. The blade and mesh filter require scrubbing with soap and brush but that is it. It is a great purchase for your health.

The juicer does exactly what it claims to do. However, the novelty of juicing has already worn off due to the effort it takes to clean the machine after each use. I'm already over it. Love Zappos for the quick delivery though!
