I only give the Breville Juice and Blend a nine out of ten because the price just seems outrageous. It is a great machine and does an excellent job of juicing, but I just do not feel it is worth the extra money. You can get a comparable one for almost half the price. It is super noisy when you use it, but I do not mind that, it is the people still asleep that have a problem with it! It is nice that it comes with a pitcher that is not attached also. You do have to put it on an angle to get the juice out, but it works fine with minimal spilling. The pulp setting effectiveness is amazing because there is always almost no pulp in the juice which is just the way I love it. Just be forewarned that there are a few parts you will have to scrub because they are always going to have pulps stuck to them. Other than that it is pretty easy to take apart, clean, and put back together. Versatility/Number of Features It just juices.
