Which Breville Juicer was Joe Cross using in his movie?
In the movie “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross, he was using a Breville juicer. You might be curious what’s the model that he was using. The movie shows how Joe lost weight and regain his health through juicing. The machine he was using for his reboot is a Breville JE98XL.
Since then, Breville has come up with an upgraded version which is the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite. They have given the upgraded version a much more powerful motor and given it a shiny metal body. Feedback from users is that the upgraded version does a better job at juicing leafy greens than the JE98XL.Let’s take a look at what the upgraded version offers.
Is the Breville 800JEXL a Masticating or Centrifugal Juicer?
These are the 2 common type of juicers. The masticating or slow juicer extract the juice using a crushing action. The pulp tends to be dryer. The centrifugal or fast juicer extract the juice using a high-speed blade that will tear up the produce. The pulp is reasonably dry too.
The upgraded model is a centrifugal juicer and it is designed to give you up to 30% more juice for your enjoyment.
Besides giving you more juices, you might also be interested to know how much nutrients it can extract.
A test has been done on the juicer on how well it can do that. The test results show that the machine is able to extract up to 70% nutrients from the produce. This would definitely help you to achieve the nutrients that you need daily.
Does it heat up the juice?
I have been reading reviews about masticating vs centrifugal juicer which states that the centrifugal juicer will heat up the juices. This makes me wonder if the precious enzymes in the juice will be destroyed during the process. With so many different reviews, which one should I believe?
This is when I chance upon the foodthinkers website. I found that tests have been carried out on the Breville Juicer. Look what I found.
The test results stated that the juicer only increased the temperature of the juices by 1.2°F, which is not enough to destroy the enzymes. This is good to know. Now we don’t have to worry that the precious enzymes will be destroyed due to the heat from juicing.
What Features does this juicer have?
Ability to juice whole fruits
The Breville Juice Fountain Elite comes with a patented 3″ extra-wide feed chute that can fit in a whole apple or a beetroot. Which means that you spend little or no time to cut up the produce before juicing them. Just wash the produce, put it into the juicer and enjoy the end product.
Being able to juice beetroot whole has another benefit, drumroll … no more stains. You can enjoy your beetroot juice and not have to worry about the cleaning up. It can be a chore trying to remove those purple stains from your hands. With the extra wide chute, you can enjoy sweet beetroot juice without worrying about stains on the hands anymore.
This wide feed chute is no doubt a benefit but this also means that the machine will be bigger which will take up more space on your countertop. So do keep this in mind when considering this machine.
Heavy Duty Motor
This model comes with a 1000 watt motor which gives it more power. It can juice almost anything. Users have commented that this juicer makes juicing almost effortless.
There’s two speed to choose from. Low speed (6500rpm) or High speed (13,000rpm). The low speed is meant for juicing soft fruits and leafy greens while the high speed is meant for juicing harder fruits and vegetables.
It comes with a food pusher. When you are juicing, you want to use the food pusher to make sure that all the produce has gone down the feed chute. Always push it down slowly to let the juicer extract the maximum amount of juice from the produce. Especially when you are juicing high water content produce, like the watermelon, you want to go slow to avoid any leakage.
It has a safety locking arm to keep all the parts in position. If the safety locking arm is not in place, the juicer will not work.
It also has an overload protection. When the juicer gets overheated, it will shut down automatically. This will prevent the motor from burning out. When this happen, just unplug the unit from the power supply and wait for it to cool down. Then look for the Overload Protection Button at the bottom of the unit. Press on it to reset the machine and you will be able to use it again.
The upgraded version is made of die cast material. This gives it a shiny and beautiful appearance which is not just good to look at but is also much more durable. Another benefit is that juices will not leave any stain on the unit.
Is it easy to clean?
Users have commented that this juicer is very easy to clean. Most of the parts can be washed on the top shelf of the dishwasher. This is another time saver.
The unit comes with a 1-year limited warranty which will start on the day you purchase the unit.
