Breville juicers are some of the original and some of the best. Joe Cross features them in his documentary Fat Sick and Nearly Dead which gave them their rise to fame (and is possibly even why you’re here?).
They have a big range of products though so it can be hard to know which one to choose.
That’s where I come in, I’ve reviewed all the currently available Breville juicers to help you find the one you need.
But before you get to the reviews there are a couple of things to consider, so let’s start.
Masticating Breville vs Centrifugal
You need to decide whether you want to buy a masticating juicer or a centrifugal juicer. I’ve had an in-depth look at the differences between the two here but for this article, I’ll keep it brief.
Why You Might Want a Masticating Breville Juicer
I love masticating juicers, they’re my favourite type because they’re just so much better. They have a higher yield of juice for the amount of fruit you put in so they save you money in the long term and they don’t heat up the juice you’re making which means it lasts longer.
That’s why they’re often called cold press juicers but more to that they’re also called slow juicers because they work by spinning a big auger which crushes the fruit squeezing out all the juice.
The result of the slow process? They aren’t nearly as loud, so you can juice without waking up the whole house and the neighbours.
Pros of a masticating juicer
- Quieter juicing for a more pleasant experience
- Save money by needing less fruit
- Keeps The Juice so it stays fresher and keeps more nutrition
The downside is that they cost more initially, you save that if you plan on juicing often though on the amount you’d otherwise be spending on organic produce! Because masticating juicers make an average of 30% more juice from the same amount so you save 30% on your juicing grocery bill every week which quickly adds up.
With all that said why would you buy a centrifugal juicer?
Because they’re cheaper, if you’re just trying out juicing you might want to just dip a toe in with a nice cheap juicer.
Centrifugal juicers work with a fast spinning blade that shreds up the fruit and using centrifugal force whips the pulp onto a mesh allowing the juice to pass through and the pulp to be collected in a separate container.
So what’s it going to be? Masticating or Centrifugal? And don’t worry, Breville have both.
Why Choose Breville
These are the things common amongst all Breville juicers and the reasons why they’re such a great brand.
Breville have been making juicers for a long time, and people have been enjoying them this whole time! Thousands upon thousands of people have chosen Breville as their juicer of choice, some models even have over 5000 Amazon reviews!
And if you consider not everyone who buys leaves a review that must be a good sign, definitely a sign you’re not alone in your choice.
Unique Extraction Process
Breville use an ultra sharp titanium reinforced cutting disk in their juicer which is sure to make short work of anything it comes into contact with. This is the surrounded by an Italian made micro mesh filter that helps extract up to 30% more juice and 40% more vitamins and minerals!
Extra Wide Chute For Minimum Prep Time
All their juicers come with a 3-inch feeding chute which means you can put in most fruit and vegetables more or less whole. What does that mean? Well it means you can get to making your delicious juice faster with less prep time.
Finally all the juice collection jugs come with a froth separator which works to keep froth out your juice when it’s made. Because when you’re taking a drink of juice and get nothing but the foam on top it can ruin the taste somewhat, an ideal thing to avoid.
Best Breville Masticating Juicers
No surprise but I’m going to start with my top pick for the best Breville juicer, the masticating Big Squeeze juicing machine.
Breville Big Squeeze Juicer Review
- Easy Cleaning With Stopper Cap
- Quiet Juicing With Low Power Motor
- Save Time With Large Chute
This is Breville’s one and only masticating juicer, they’ve done it once and they’ve done it right. It’s got two feed chutes into it one for smaller fruits and vegetables and the other for larger items which is very clever.
It means you can juice whole items without having to chop them up first which saves time, but the smaller chute means you can juice the likes of greens and berries with full effectiveness just as well, because sometimes smaller items get stuck along bigger chutes which is a nightmare to try and clean.
And of course it’s got all the trademarks of a masticating juicer, slow speed, high yield and the motor is very quiet so you can juice away happily you don’t have to clear the room first.
I also really liked the stop cap on the juice outlet, it works really well for cleaning because you can put the cap on and run it through with water to fill it up and rinse it out. Cleaning can be a pain so any way to make that process easier to save you time is a win in my book.
My absolute top pick for the best Breville juicer, you can’t go wrong with The Big Squeeze.
Other Breville Juicer Reviews
Now onto the rest of the juicers, Breville’s other juicers are all different models of their juice fountain, a great and affordable centrifugal juicer.
Breville Juice Fountain Compact
- Budget Friendly Price
- Dishwasher Safe
- Takes Up Minimal Space
If you’re looking to try out juicing but aren’t that sure then this is the juicer for you, it’s a very reasonable price and does an effective job of making juice. A nice big feed chute for minimum prep time and it doesn’t take up much counter space.
In fact, it’s a got a clever design so that the pulp is collected inside the base of the juicer itself, funny it’s the compact model eh? It’s pleasing to look at too, something about it is just very sleek and modern.
And another huge plus is that it’s dishwasher safe, it also comes with a custom cleaning brush so you can get the chunks out before it clogs up your dishwasher, overall it’s a fairly painless cleaning experience.
The original and one of the best juicers you can get to start juicing, ideal for beginners.
Breville Juice Fountain Plus Review
- High and Low Settings
- 850 Watts Of Power
This really is the plus version of the Compact juicer, it’s got an extra 150 watts of juicing power to cut down anything you put in it and an adjustable two-speed motor that for maximum control.
The two speeds, high and low, can be used for soft fruits and leafy vegetables or hard and dense vegetables respectively. This just gives you that little bit more control and lets you get the maximum amount of juice out of your produce.
It’s a little bigger (as the name suggests) which means it takes up more room but overall it’s still not that big. And the main reason it’s bigger is that the pulp catcher is on the outside of the machine which makes it easier to empty out and clean up after.
Breville Juice Fountain Elite
- High 1000 Watt Motor
- Large Pulp Container
- Large Juice Jug
Another power upgrade for even more effective juicing and large juice and pulp containers so you can just keep on juicing.
The collection jug has a froth separator so you get all the juice without the annoying froth on top that sometimes comes with making juice. And it’s a generous 5 cups in size so you can juice to your heart’s content.
The 1000 Watt motor is getting to professional standards when it comes to juicing, you can make any juice you want and it’ll get handled tremendously well in this juicer. It’s also got the 2-speed settings so you can make everything perfectly.
And once again dishwasher safe parts so you can get everything cleaned up in no time.
Bevilles most professional juicer.
Breville Juice Fountain Cold
- 850 Watt
- Cold Spin Technology
- Seal And Store Jug
This is a really cool juicer because the other Breville juice fountains are all fairly similar but this one has some new technology which stops the heat transfer from the spinning blades! A huge plus because it will keep your juice lasting longer and ensure more nutrients and enzymes end up in your glass.
With that this includes a seal and store jug which, as it sounds, seals your juice so you can keep it in the fridge where it will last for up to three days.
Essentially you’re getting everything you could need from a masticating juicer with the price tag of a centrifugal one! Except, in yield, the Big Squeeze will still outperform the Fountain Cold when it comes to how much juice is produced.
A really interesting choice for a Breville juicer.
Breville Juice Fountain Duo
- Blender & Juicer
- 5 Variable Speeds
- 1200 Watts
This is a combination blender and juicer, it juices similar to the other juice fountains but it can also make fruit smoothies out of soft fruits. I’m not sure how useful that actually is, because you can buy a smoothie blender that has far more capability and versatility than just making soft fruit smoothies.
And for the cost that it is you can buy a blender and a juicer, it’ll take up more space because you’ll have two appliances that at least do everything they’re supposed to.
So as you can tell I’m not a fan of the Breville duo, better to stick with one of the other juicers or even better get the Big Squeeze so you’re spending the same amount of money but have a far more capable machine.
Breville Citrus Press
- One Size Fits All
- Easy To Use
- Drip Stop Spout
If you have a lot of oranges to juice then this is what you need, it’s a simple and effective way to juice any citrus fruit.
The way yo use it is intuitive, you just place half an orange on the juicing cone and squeeze down the handle to start turning it, hold it there till all the juice has come out then you have an entirely juiced orange half and you can move on to the next one.
It’s all citrus fruit, lemons, limes, grapefruit, not just oranges but generally orange juice is the only thing you make a lot of. The drip stop spout works to stop drips falling onto the counter keeping the mess to a minimum which is a plus and the parts fit together easily and intuitively so you can take it apart for cleaning really easily.
So there you have it, all the Breville juicers reviews. My favourite is still the Big Squeeze masticating juicer, it’s so effective at making juice that’s as healthy as possible with the maximum amounts of enzymes and nutrients so.
But the Juice Fountain Compact is also great if you’re a beginner looking to just try out juicing, it’ll give you everything you need to try your hand at making juice but be warned. Once you try it and start feeling amazing you won’t go back! Check out these green juice recipes once you’re ready to get started!
