The Bottom Line: This Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor is a perfectly sized juicer that packs a punch and that will get through all of your juicing jobs! Stable, powerful, easy to clean, and great looking, you will want to keep this juicer on your kitchen counter at all times. Highly recommended juicer!

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
With a low (6.500 rpm) and a high (12,000 rpm) speed, you can choose the juicing power based on the food you are using, and based on the kind of fruit or vegetable you are juicing, you will get a lot of juice out of each food. Some wetter foods like pineapple will require that you run the pulp another time, but no matter what you will get lots of juice with every food.

Stability While in Use
This juicer is probably one of the most stable juicers I have ever used, even when using tougher vegetables or fruits, it never moves from your counter or rotates.

Ease of Cleaning
This juicer is fairly easy to clean, and the different cleanable parts are easily removable and you can either stick them in the dishwasher or wash them by hand, which is what I usually do, because I tend to do several juicing jobs one right after the other. This juicer makes it easy to switch from one type of vegetable to another with a quick rinse in between jobs. It also includes a great cleaning brush which has come in very handy.

Durability
I received this juicer at Christmas of last year and have not had one issue with it so far. With a heavy grade polymer construction, it is quite sturdy and solid.

Versatility/Number of Features
I have used this machine for every fruit and vegetable imaginable, and I have yet to find a food this juicer was not able to conquer!

Design
This machine is very cleverly designed and there are almost too many smart features to list but my favorite ones are: 1)The extra wide feed chute makes it easy to just drop the food in without having to cut it up in smaller pieces, so you can drop an entire apple or orange in and get to juicing right away. 2)The two settings (6,500 rpms or 12,000 rpm) is an awesome feature that allows you to choose the correct setting based on the type of fruit or vegetable you are juicing. 3) Even though I have not had to experience it, the machine has an overload protection that prevents it from over heating and will shut the juicer down automatically and not burn out the motor. 4)The safety locking arm will prevent the juicer from operating without the cover locked into place, so never worry about making a mess! 5) The large capacity self-ejecting pulp feature is super convenient when you want to use lots of produce at once, so that you don't have to constantly empty the pulp container.

I was looking forward to using this juicer! I was debating between this and the Jack Lalane. I wish I would have gone with the latter of the two. The Breville turned the fruit to froth instead of juice. It was not good! It was also a little difficult to clean, I would definitely not recommend this one.

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

Love the fact that it leaves some pulp, but shredded up enough not to get stuck in teeth. It is easier to clean when we use bio-degradable bags that we use in out counter compost bucket. Easy to clean, but must be done as soon as possible or it's hard to get the pulp out of the screen.

Just has on/off of hi or low speeds.

The best juicer I've come across.

By 

from Millville, NJ

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

I have heard a lot of stories about how overpriced some juicers were, so I was nervous about picking out the perfect juicer for my family. I found the Breville Juice Fountain Plus at a store on sale one day and knew about the reputabilty behind the brand so I figured I'd give it a chance.

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
I liked the fact that there were two juicing options, but really would have liked to see a different setting for leafy greens.

Stability While in Use
This juicer was very stable and when it juiced it was always very smooth when running.

Ease of Cleaning
This juicer was so easy to clean. Most of the parts are dishwasher safe which is an added luxury.

Durability
I've had this juicer for two years and it is still working as great as it did the first day.

Versatility/Number of Features
I really liked that this Breville Juice Fountain had safety features like the locking system where it had to be locked in to place before it would operate, and how the machine would shut off if there was too much build up inside it so that the motor didn't get burnt out.

Design
The design was very clean and it fits well on my counter without hogging up too much space.

Great juicer

By 

from USA

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

The breville juice fountain plus 850 watt juice extractor is an excellent juicer to own. I really love using mine. I recently discovered the health benefits of juicing and I juice at least once a day. The thing that I like most about this particular juicer is how fast it is. It does not take a lot of time or effort to get your perfect glass of juice. I also have found that it extracts a great deal of juice at one time. Some juicers leave out big chunks or fruits or vegetables but this particular juicer really gets it all. I will say it was a little more expensive than I cared to pay but it was well worth the extra money. If you love to juice I think you will really like this particular juicer.

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
Great setting effectiveness.

Stability While in Use
Wonderful stability while using. It never shakes too much.

Ease of Cleaning
I will say it's a little difficult to clean this machine. Overall it's worth the extra work.

Durability
Very durable.

Design
Great design.

Juice Fountain transforms your produce into fresh juice.

By 

from USA

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

For the price, this is a great juicer! Super strong motor easily juices all your choices into a tasty drink. Virtually any fresh produce you can think of can be turned into an easily consumed juice. All of the nutrients and vitamins that are found in a case of fruits and vegetables and be condensed down to a simple, flavourful drink. What would take days of chewing is instead delivered to your body in the form of a refreshing drink. Once you are done juicing, simply take the juicer apart and rinse everything out and you are ready to put it away. I should mention however, the metal basket which separates the pulp from the juice requires a good scrubbing with the brush that came supplied with the unit. This is the only time consuming part of the cleaning process.

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
Easily extracts just the juice.

Stability While in Use
Very heavy base stays in place.

Ease of Cleaning
Only some of the parts go into the dishwasher. Mesh basket requires a brush to clean.

Durability
Very sturdy

Versatility/Number of Features
Just juice. Hi and Low setting

Great Juicer!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

I love fruit drinks in the morning instead of coffee. For years I had been using a blender to make fruit smoothies, but after hearing friends and family rave about juicing I decided to give it a try. I went to the store and picked out this model, the Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor. The first day I used it, I fell in love! There is absolutely no comparison between a blender and a juicer. A juicer, specifically this model, is so much more easy/effective and it creates a much better tasting finished product. So if you are a fruit drink addict like me and are currently using a blender I would highly recommend the Breville Juice Fountain instead!

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
In the eight months I've used the Breville Juice Fountain I have never found pulp in my juice!

Ease of Cleaning
The cleaning of this machine is fairly time consuming. You must take all the pieces apart to thoroughly clean them. But all the components are dishwasher safe, so just the taking apart and assembling takes time.

Durability
In the eight months I've had it, I have yet to have any sort of problem with it.

Versatility/Number of Features
It is a very simple machine, there aren't a ton of extra features to it. Which I find to be a good thing, it's easy to use and perfect for the everyday juicer.

Great juicer!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

I'm very pleased with this product overall. It juices both hard and soft vegetables with ease, and produces tasty, relatively pulp-free juices. Two speeds give it some versatility, and it's extremely stable on the counter when running, the feet actually keep it in place and it doesn't "walk" away.

The juicer comes apart quickly for cleaning and re-assembles easily. The supplied brush has a pulp scraper on one end which makes scooping the basket easy as well. A quick brush under running water takes care of the cleaning.

On the downside, it's pretty loud when running, though not obnoxiously so. Large vegetables like beets may need to be cut before juicing, despite the larger feed tube. The plastic and metal components stain after a short time, and I haven't found anything that cleans off the stain, though that's fairly typical with any juicer.

On the whole, this is a great product for the price.

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
There's no setting for pulp, it just is.

This is a great option on this juicer. It is very effective depending on my mood of the day whether I want pulp in my juice or not. No other juicer I have had had this setting.

It is very stable while it is in use. I never had a problem with my juice going all over the place.

It is very easy to clean. The design makes it very easy to get to every part of the juicer to get it clean.

Wheelhorse of a juicer!

By 

from Baden, PA

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

Powerful juicer. It has two speeds. On high it is loud but it juices like crazy! I put a plastic grocery sack in the container that collects the pulp for easy cleanup. It comes apart easily and comes with a brush for cleanup too. When adding fruit, I didn't get the plunger in quick enough and it shot the piece of Apple across the room. The blade spins very fast! I love this juicer!

Comments about Breville Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor:

I got my breville juicer after watching the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I have had this juicer for awhile now and I think it still works great. It juices almost all fruits and vegetables and I have never had a problem with anything I have juiced. I use it a few times a week and it is very easy to take it apart and clean it as well as to store afterwards.

Ease of Cleaning
I clean it as I take it apart. It is very easy.
