Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer Review
Breville fountain crush is the best juicer if you are that person that makes juice almost daily, this slow juicer 80rpm is very quiet, you can use it in the middle of the night without the worry of disturbing your kids or neighbors.
The manufacturer says it’s a smooth and pulpy, many people find this contradicting, it somewhat is, but I get what they are saying.
I like my juice the way this juicer makes it, smooth but with a small amount of pulp, I think some fiber is good for digestion. You can, however, sieve your juice afterward if that’s not your thing.
It’s a slow juicer so it won’t work for you if you are in a rush, you will also need to pre-cut your food because the feed is small and if you are juicing kales this will avoid clogging.
The juicer comes with an overload switch and a change of direction. It has a 10yr warranty on the motor and 1yr for the other parts. This should not be a bother ‘cause the plastic used to make it is x8 stronger, so unless you try some weird things, the juicer is made to last longer with frequent use.
This is the most quite Breville juicer I know; you could be juicing and having a conversation normally, no need to raise your voice. What I like about this is that I can make my juice after the morning workout and not bother anyone not ready to wake up.
The screen and the auger are made of 8x harder ultem plastic. This will last for a long time even if you use it on a daily basis. Its compact design also enhances its durability.
Being a slow juicer, both the juice quality and quantity are great. The pulp is fairly dry compared to other juicers. The juice will last longer as compared to the juice from centrifugal juicers since the slow process reduces the oxidation of the juice. This means for the same quantity of juice it will have more nutrients.
Ease Of Use
This juicer is quite easy to use. You can disassemble and reassemble it within a minute. The parts are marked with indications of how they align. Cleaning it is easy; it comes with a brush to clean the screen. The back end of the brush can be used to clean the inside of the pulp ejection output. All you need to do is plug it in, feed your prepared food and get the juice. In case you get stuck you can use the direction switch to reverse it, a little then carry on, and it will pick up.
This Breville juicer is designed to give you great results at an affordable cost. It will give you great juice full of nutrients; the dry pulp tells you that you are getting the most juice. If you like fresh quality juice everyday, this juicer will put a smile on your face.
