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.

Love it! This is the compact size available for Breville. Very easy to clean, only few parts. Getting really addicted to juice daily. I have been using it daily for last 30 days or so and no complaints.

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.

This is the first juicer I have owned, so though I have nothing to compare it to, I have really enjoyed it so far. It is not that difficult to clean (make sure you clean the underside of the mesh strainer - I missed that the first few times). I have juiced lots of veggies, with no problems. I especially like the lid of the pitcher, which strains out the foam, leaving you with pure juice. One con might be that the remaining fruit/veggie fiber is still pretty wet, suggesting that there is more juice to be strained. But for the price, this is a great juicer!

My Jack LL's juicer died only after using it 25 or so times. I decided to buy this model. I do like to put greens in my juice so I think I will cut them up and not just stuff them in like I have seen in some videos. Last night I used my new Breville for the first time. I loved it, but I do not like the small area where the pulp goes. If you have large fingers you will have trouble scooping it out without a device to help. Also, the juice is frothy, which means more oxidation and less nutrients. Other than these two minor issues I love it. I am committing to juice every day.

An amazing juicer for the price. Even my partner who is a juicer snob is impressed with it. I am using it 2 times per day, hand-washing it right after. Juice is perfect, there are zero issues with the machine. Some tips: Make sure you use the wire brush on the filter so it is well-cleaned. Don't put juicer parts in the dishwasher...it isn't necessary. Also, remember to tip the machine towards you at the end (once it's switched off) to get the last few drops of yummy juice. To the person who seems to not be getting a lot of juice, there must be something wrong with it. I am amazed at how much juice this thing makes eg. one large carrot, one lg. apple and a chunk of cabbage makes about 1 cup of juice...more than enough first thing in the morning. Happy juicing!

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!

I have only read rave reviews about this product. It was a gift from a friend and my first juicer. My mom and I wanted to begin juicing together, neither of had a juicer. Since I was receiving mine the first week of May and Breville was highly recommended I ordered my mother a Breville BJE510XL for Mother's Day. I wish I had used mine first and had known Breville was not going to provide me with ANY customer service what so ever. I would have never provided them with any more business. Based on all of the positive reviews and feed back I am so suprised I am having the problems I am having from my juicer. I have taking many pictures hoping Breville will call me back or email me back so I can show someone my problems. When I juice I am getting large chunks of apple, pear, carrots, cucumber, kale, and spinach in my pulp collector. Celery does great! My mom received her juicer. As I said, I received the 200XL and she has the 510XL. Her pulp is very fine and dry. Mine is very wet and my carrots are literally just cut in half and that is it. It looks like my apples have been cut up to eat. Also my juicer was a gift from a friend from out of town. I do not want to call her and tell her I received a LEMON. I assume it is a lemon since everyone else seems to love thier Breville. This is a true disappointment. I have no where to return my Breville, it is not functioning properly. Breville will not return my call, answer the phone, or respond to emails. I called Monday and Tuesday afternoon. It rang the first time until it went busy...like it rang off the wall.

I bought this juicer as a gift for my son. He is very happy with it. It is easy to use and the amount of produce to generate a glass of juice is less than the juicer we use which is a different make.

This is my first juicer and it is perfect for my needs (mostly vegetable juicing). I read a lot of reviews for other juicers in this price range and had the most confidence in this one. I think it's wonderful, easy to use, easy to clean, relatively compact (for a juicer), handsome. I'm very pleased with it.

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.
