Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus Centrifugal Juicer Review

As both a simple and effective tool, the Breville JE98XL juicer manages to quite literary blend in all the features one could hope for in a quality juicer, while making it also fairly easy to use. At the heart of its effectiveness is the heavy-duty 850-watt motor, which enables this machine to turn anything from a soft banana to a crunchy apple into juice with ease. It has a dual speed control, each of which is determined by what is placed in the jug, with 6,500 rpm and 12,000 rpm options that can be set with the simple switch of a button.

A 3” feeder shoot means that large chunks of what needs to be juiced can be easily fit in, after which the impressive Nutri Disc goes into action. By using a combination of the disc’s stainless steel blades set to spin at either a high or low rate, and a patented design that ensures that no more than 1.8°F of heat is transferred during the entire process, not only does this machine turn hard solids into juice, it does so in a way that ensures as many nutrients are maintained within that juice as possible.

Regarding the design, as mentioned before, a 3” direct central feed system means it is easy to place whatever fruit or vegetable is wanted in the chute. Once water is added, simply opt between one of the two speeds and the juicing process begins. The 1-liter jug that it comes with begins to fill at a rate of 8 oz. every 5 seconds. Apart from being able to bar froth, this juicer also comes with a large-capacity pulp ejector, ensuring that juice is served in its purest form.

The juicer is made up of a number of detachable parts, including the aforementioned juicer jug with a froth separator, a filter basket, and a cleaning brush, all of which are dishwasher-safe, making the juicer as easy to clean as it is to use. As an added safety measure, apart from the lock function that disables use when the cover is open, the juice features overload protection to prevent overheating.

  • Heavy grade polymer body

Blades uncharacteristically not easy to clean


It is one thing to have a juicer that is durable and does the job of turning solids into liquids, as this particular one does, but it is something special to have one that is as efficient at this, all while making it easy for anyone to use. The materials used make sure that it does not cower from any fruit or vegetable, no matter how hard, and along with the convenient design and various safety measures, users are offered quick results while engaging in other activities with peace of mind. The quality of the juice produced, in both texture and nutrition, all bears testimony to the Breville JE98XL’s exceptional quality.
