The Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-W Juice Extractor combines the performance of a commercial juicer with the convenience of a home kitchen appliance to deliver a truly high-end value.
Based on the extraction method, there are two principle types of juicers. The masticating extractors are slow moving juicers fitted with an auger that ‘chews’ up the produce, squeezes out the juice and spits out the pulp. On the other hand, the faster and more popular centrifugal juicers make use of a fast-rotating cutting assembly (usually a disc or blades) that first grinds the produce and then crushes it for extracting the juice.

The Breville Juice Fountain extractors fall in the latter category, ie, centrifugal juicers. These are fast, efficient and easy-cleaning fruit-and-vegetable juicers that are quite ideally suited for on-the-go juicing. The Juice Fountain range has a variety of models to suit your juicing requirements and habits. Some of these have been discussed below along with the pros and cons for each.
The Omega range of fruit-and-vegetable juicers includes the slow-speed masticating type models as well as the centrifugal type pulp-ejecting juicers.
These are the masticating type models equipped with slow-speed augers that minimize heat build-up and oxidation, resulting in tastier and healthier juices. The Omega range of slow-speed juicers can further classified into Nutrition Centers and Vertical Masticating Juicers
These juicers feature the traditional masticating ‘arm’ design where the augur directly extracts the juice and pours it into the receiver glass without letting it swirl around inside, unlike in centrifugal juicers. This ensures a fresh and more flavorful juice drink.
Made and endorsed by the late fitness legend Jack LaLanne, these are powerful but affordable centrifugal juicers that are suitable for juicing fruit as well as vegetables. Centrifugal juicers basically work this way: The food is first cut up and ground into a pulp. This pulp is then spun around at a high speed, forcing the liquid and the smallest particulate matter through a mesh. The pulp residue is then forced upwards and into a receptacle. Simple enough!!!
Jack LaLanne was a health and fitness expert. So it is not surprising that the Power Juicer embodies the same principles of good health that have made him a household name. The juice you get is as close to the original produce as possible. It will not be clear. It will have particulate matter. JL juicers are designed for the utmost nutritional value, so if you’re more concerned about the flavor, or juice only to entertain guests, the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer might not be your best bet.
