Breville JE98XL Review Part II

Well I started juicing this morning with my newly acquired Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor. After having a good experience with it the day before I was enthusiastic to get started this morning.

Did I mention I think this one is easy to clean? It is, just a little soap and warm water will do it. The screen is a little tougher to clean than the one in my Omega J8004, but that’s because the screen is much larger in the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor.

First on deck I’m making a green juice. 1 large cucumber (I extracted 8 ounces of juice from it and it had some froth), 2 kale leaves, 2 celery stalks, 1/4 lemon (peeled) and 2 granny smith apples.

Everything juiced well. Fast and easy, just how I like it. My Omega J8004 will certainly get more juice from the kale. So if you’re juicing lots of leafy greens the Omega J8004 is the first choice or at least a comparable masticating juicer.

The granny smith apples needed quartered. They were just a little too big for the chute.

The juice turned out delicious! I love a healthy, tasty green juice.

Next was a fruit juice recipe that I just threw together, just like the green juice recipe above.

I had 1/2 pineapple, 1 orange, 1 grapefruit, 1 granny smith apple and 1/4 lemon (peeled).

The 1/2 pineapple was first. I juiced it as I did yesterday, with the skin and core in tact. (Next time I’ll remove the skin.) With 1/2 pineapple the Breville extracted approx. 10 ounces of juice and 5 ounces of froth. It was thick juice.

The remaining fruit went as expected. I got about 32 ounces of juice with that recipe and there was still a lot of froth left in the juice jug. I poured some more out after the froth settled and got a little more juice.

The froth separator works like a charm!

The end result was delicious. I don’t mind some pulp or a thicker juice. I still used a little purified water to thin it out. That way I get more juice and it cuts my sugar intake. Sometimes I just add ice and let it melt a little to dilute the thick juice. Sparkling water is another good alternative!

I still have some more juicing (testing) to do with the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor. Is it worth $149? Certainly it is! Think of the good health you receive from fresh fruit and vegetable juice. Remember, “There’s No-Thing Better For Your Body Than FRESH Fruit and Vegetable JUICE!”

Update: I was putting my juicer back together this morning when a piece of the filter bowl surround broke off. I called Breville support for a warranty claim since this is just a month old and they said the parts above the motor are not under warranty and I would have to purchase the part from their website. Not what I expected from Breville, but understandable I guess.

I have a GE juicer and have had the screen replaced by them at no cost, no questions asked.

    I know this juicer. I think it worked pretty well in cutting and crush fruits or vegetables to be a smoothie to drink. A juicer is worth to be recommended.

    Hi rich, they’re looks great as usually 🙂
    I see you start using a new juicer. You must have many juice recipes to be made by it. Btw, the second juice is full of Vitamin C fruits and it’ll be my favorite one…
