OMEGA J8004 NUTRITION CENTER COMMERCIAL MASTICATING JUICER, WHITE REVIEW

The Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer, White is the white model of the chrome plated Omega J8006. If you want to be able to juice not only fruits, but also leafy vegetables and wheatgrass, this single-gear masticating juicer is up to the task.

Unlike with centrifugal juicers, the Omega J8004 uses a low speed of just 80 RPM which ensures that heat build-up and foaming is kept to a minimum during the juicing process, so your juice lasts longer and is healthier to drink.

OMEGA J8004 NUTRITION CENTER COMMERCIAL MASTICATING JUICER, WHITE FEATURES

OMEGA J8004 NUTRITION CENTER COMMERCIAL MASTICATING JUICER
  • Powerful single-gear motor
  • Dual-stage masticating juicing system
  • Low rotation speed (80 RPM) prevents clogging, foaming and heat build-up
  • High yield with dry pulp
  • Automatic pulp ejection for continuous juicing
  • Backed by 15-year warranty

Low Rotation Speed (80 RPM)

The Omega J8004 has a low rotation speed of 80 RPM, resulting in less foam in your juice and minimum heat build-up during the juicing process. This prevents the nutritious vitamins from the juice from getting destroyed thus resulting in healthier juice for you to drink. Impressively, it is very quiet in operation due to the low rotation speed, even quieter than your typical blender or food processor.

Automatic Pulp Ejection

The automatic pulp ejection feature allows you to feed produce into the machine continuously without the hassle of needing to clean out the pulp container, thus saving you time.

Goes Beyond Juicing

The Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer isn’t just great for juicing. You can use the provided attachments to make baby food, grind coffee, make nut butter, extrude pasta and mince herbs.

Easy to Clean

Cleaning the Omega J8004 is a very quick task which requires you to clean just four parts. After juicing, just undo the parts then run them under running water. The cleaning process typically takes just 3-4 minutes.

PROS AND CONS OF THE OMEGA J8004 NUTRITION CENTER COMMERCIAL MASTICATING JUICER, WHITE

Pros

The Omega J8004 is robustly built with quality durable components.

The low operating speed results in foamless juice which tastes great and is healthy.

For added versatility, the Omega J8004 does more than just juice, allowing you to make baby food, nut butters and more besides using the supplied attachments.

It is very quick and easy to clean.

It’s backed by a 15-year warranty, giving you peace of mind for a long time.

Cons

The feed tube is rather small, so some produce needs to be chopped up before being fed in. Although keep in mind, this is common with all masticating juicers.

It doesn’t juice soft fruits too well, leaving too much pulp behind.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE OMEGA J8004 NUTRITION CENTER COMMERCIAL MASTICATING JUICER, WHITE

The Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer is an outstanding juicer which can juice just about anything you put through it. When it comes down to it, this juicer ticks all the right boxes. It’s quiet, easy to clean and use and results in a very dry pulp. The low operation speed ensures that the juice it produces is full of nutrients. It excels best at juicing leafy greens and vegetables.

Being a masticating juicer, its slower and more time consuming to juice than using a centrifugal juicer. Therefore, if you are juicing for a large family you should bear this in mind.

We would have liked to have a seen a pulp regulator to have the option of adding a wee bit of pulp now and then, but as there is no pulp or foam in the juice we can’t really complain.

One thing consumers love about this juicer is that it’s backed by a 15-year warranty, so should you encounter any problems within the first 15 years of owning it, just contact Omega and they’ll send you any required parts to start getting you juicing again.

There is also a Black and Chrome version of this juicer available – the Omega J8006. It’s higher priced than the white version, but you may find it best suits your kitchen decor.

OMEGA VRT350 HEAVY DUTY DUAL-STAGE VERTICAL SINGLE AUGER LOW SPEED JUICER REVIEW

If you plan on juicing on a daily basis then investing in a heavy-duty juicer such as the Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer is a good decision. This is a single auger juicer so it’s perfect for juicing wheatgrass and other leafy greens without producing high levels of oxidation which result in less healthy juice.

There are 3 models in Omega’s VERT juicer line-up. The previous two models are the Omega VRT330 and the Omega VRT330 HD. The Omega VRT350 HD under review here is their most advanced model to date.

The design of the Omega VRT350 is rather unique. Instead of being horizontal like a typical single auger juicer, it is vertical to ensure the machine is compact and gives you the extra efficiency of self feeding.

OMEGA VRT350 HEAVY DUTY DUAL-STAGE VERTICAL SINGLE AUGER LOW SPEED JUICER FEATURES

OMEGA VRT350 HEAVY DUTY DUAL-STAGE VERTICAL SINGLE AUGER LOW SPEED JUICER
  • 80 RPM low speed operation
  • Compact base
  • Able to juice wheatgrass at a high yield
  • Fine and coarse juicing screen to control pulp amount
  • Automatic cleaning system

Low Speed Operation

The Omega VRT350 juices produce at a low speed of just 80 revolutions per minute which results in less oxidation and build-up of heat so the juice it produces retains its nutrition and has a longer shelf life than the juice produced by high-speed juicers.

The other benefit the low speed provides is that the juicer is very quiet in operation, making just a low whirring sound from the motor and a crunching sound as the produce gets crushed in the auger whilst juicing.

Vertically Designed

The Omega VRT350 differs from most singer auger juicers, by featuring a vertical design. Not only does this result in a smaller footprint, but it means you can drop hard produce such as carrots straight into the feeding chute without pushing, due to the vertical positioning of the cylinder.

Fine and Coarse Juicing Screen

The juicing screens allow you to control the amount of pulp which goes into your juice. We like this feature as it lets you have your juice to your own personal preference so you can have either a pulpy juice drink or juice free of pulp.

Dry Pulp

Due to the dual-stage process used which extracts the juice via two stages; the pulp which comes out of the machine is very dry especially when juicing leafy vegetables.

Ultem Screen for Heavy Duty Performance

An improvement over the Omega VRT330 model is the addition of an ultem screen. The screen is 8x stronger than the plastic screen used in the earlier VERT model, allowing you to juice frequently on a daily basis without worrying about the screen cracking.

PROS AND CONS OF THE OMEGA VRT350 HEAVY DUTY DUAL-STAGE VERTICAL SINGLE AUGER LOW SPEED JUICER

Pros

The Omega VRT350 juices at a low speed to give you maximum nutritional benefits from the juice you drink, ensuring vital nutrients are not destroyed.

The silver and black finish is elegant and stylish, ensuring it will look good in any modern kitchen.

If you have a kitchen that is choc-o-bloc with appliances or you have a small worktop, you’ll really appreciate the small footprint of the Omega VRT350 due to its innovative vertical design.

It’s easy to clean. A good quality cleaning brush is included which is very useful for cleaning the screen.

Omega has backed the VRT350 with a 10-year warranty. This is far longer than what most competitors offer.

Cons

It tends to leave some foam on top of the juice. You can either quickly remove this foam with a spoon or put a sieve underneath the spout whilst juicing to vastly reduce the amount of foam.

It does not juice celery well. However, most juicers have problems juicing this vegetable because of its string-like structure. For juicing celery, we recommend you get the Omega 8004 or 8006.

Tip:

Some consumers have complained that the pulp ejector spout tends to get clogged up too easily. This problem can be avoided by alternating the type of produce which you juice. Start with soft produce first, and then put in hard produce after. This allows the hard produce to push the soft produce through the feeding tube thereby preventing problems of clogging.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE OMEGA VRT350 HEAVY DUTY DUAL-STAGE VERTICAL SINGLE AUGER LOW SPEED JUICER

The Omega VRT350 Heavy Duty Dual-Stage Vertical Single Auger Low Speed Juicer is a highly efficient masticating juicer which is suitable for juicing a wide range of fruits and vegetables, making it one of the most versatile low speed juicers in the market.

It’s ultra quiet, compact, easy to setup and produces incredibly dry pulp and high quality juice. The fact it’s heavy-duty and also backed by a 10-year guarantee, makes it a juicer you can be confident is going to serve you for the long haul.

We recommend this juicer to anyone who wants juicing to be a serious part of their lifestyle.

GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5000 JUMBO TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR REVIEW

The Green Star Elite GSE-5000 Jumbo Twin Gear Juice Extractor is the latest model from Tribest’s highly acclaimed Green Star range of juicers. Featuring an all new body and an advanced twin-gear system amongst other enhancements, the Green Star Elite GSE-5000 is Tribest’s most improvised Green Star juicer model to-date.

For serious juicers who want to get maximum yield and nutritional value from their produce, investing in a twin-gear masticating juicer such as the Green Star Elite is the way to go.

GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5000 JUMBO TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR FEATURES

GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5000 JUMBO TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR
  • Automatic pulp ejection enabling continuous juicing
  • 3-Stage juice extraction
  • Jumbo twin gears
  • New locking mechanism
  • Built-in carrying handle
  • Safety switch
  • 5-year warranty

Easy Assembly / Disassembly

The presence of side latches on the unit instead of the awkward knobs used in previous models makes attaching and removing the gear housing an easy task. This is particularly handy when it comes to disassembling the machine for cleaning.

3-Stage Juice Extraction

The Green Star Elite is the first ever juicer in the market to feature a three-stage juicing system. Unlike earlier Green Star models which only used two stages that crushed and pressed produce in the juicing process, the innovative gearing system used in the Green Star Elite utilizes two 7″ jumbo gears which have a crushing, pressing and mixing stage to give you greater juice yield and the driest pulp whether your juicing soft fruits or hard vegetables.

Safety Switch

To ensure safety and prevent any chance of injuries, the Green Star Elite only operates when the safety hood is correctly in position on the machine.

Cleanup

Cleaning a twin-gear juicer is usually the main drawback of owning one due to the numerous small parts, but the Green Star Elite is rather easy to clean and takes just a few minutes. The new latch system makes disassembling the machine and removing the parts that much easier so you’ll have them out ready for cleaning in no time.

Two cleaning brushes are included which are of very good quality. One of the brushes has long bristles for scrubbing. The other brush has hard, thin bristles which make it very handy for cleaning particles out of the screen.

PROS AND CONS OF THE GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5000 JUMBO TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR

Pros:

The Green Star Elite GSE-5000 Jumbo Twin Gear Juice Extractor is incredibly efficient for juicing a wide range of produce with a very high yield whilst still retaining vital nutrients.

Excellent build quality and construction. Many users report their machine is holding up well after many years.

Wide range of accessories included.

Cons:

We would have liked Tribest to have at least released a model with stainless steel housing to prevent staining occurring over time. However, as long as you are thorough with cleaning the machine immediately after each juicing session you shouldn’t have any problems.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5000 JUMBO TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR

The Green Star Elite GSE-5000 Jumbo Twin Gear Juice Extractor is a juicer in a league of its own and an excellent step-up from the previous Green Star models. It’s incredibly versatile so it suits the needs of people who want to juice a wide variety of fruits and vegetables with a very high yield.

Despite its versatility, the Green Star Elite isn’t suitable if you want a machine that can give you a fresh glass of juice quickly with little time required to cleanup. In this case, you should consider a centrifugal juicer such as the Juice Fountain Elite.

Out of all the masticating juicers available in the market, the Green Star Elite is our #1 choice which we highly recommend.

CHAMPION COMMERCIAL JUICER G5-PG-710 – BLACK MODEL REVIEW

When juicing enthusiasts are discussing juicers which stand the test of time, Champion juicers more often than not get a mention. Renowned for their heavy, durable parts and versatility, these masticating juicers are designed for people who want an affordable heavy-duty machine which is easy to maintain and produces juice of a high nutritional value.

Champion manufactures both household and commercial juicer models. Both models are almost identical apart from the fact the commercial models feature a more powerful motor, making them geared for commercial use.

In this review we look at the Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 and reveal whether the Champion is a winner in every sense.

CHAMPION COMMERCIAL JUICER G5-PG-710 FEATURES

CHAMPION COMMERCIAL JUICER G5-PG-710
  • Heavy-duty 1/3 HP motor
  • 1.75″ diameter large feeding tube
  • 10-year limited warranty (1-year on blade and screens)
  • Includes Juicing Screen, Blank Screen, Sieve, & Tamper
  • Available in four colors (black, white, silver and almond)

Built to last

One of the main reasons Champion Juicers are so highly regarded by health enthusiasts is due to their high durability. It isn’t rare to hear from consumers who have owned their machine for over 15 years and it’s still going strong.

The Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 is heavier than most juicer machines due to its heavy-duty motor and stainless-steel construction. For enhanced durability, the parts are made of nylon instead of plastic which most manufacturers tend to use.

Low Speed, High Yield

To keep vital nutrients and enzymes intact in your juice, the Champion Commercial Juicer uses a low speed, heavy-duty GE motor which turns at 1725 RPMs during the mastication process. The cutting cone turns slowly as it quietly squeezes juice from the produce.

GE motors have a reputation for being highly reliable in both home and commercial appliances, so a long lifespan is almost guaranteed.

Large Feeding Tube

The feeding tube has a 1.75″ diameter, which keeps down the amount of cutting and prep work you need to do prior to feeding your produce into the machine.

PROS AND CONS OF THE CHAMPION COMMERCIAL JUICER G5-PG-710

Pros:

The Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 is constructed to a very high standard with quality materials.

Has the versatility to make baby food, ice cream, nut butter, fruit sauces, fruit smoothies and sherbets with use of a blank plate.

Very easy to assemble and clean.

Faster than most masticating juicers due to its 1725 RPM motor.

Cons:

The main drawback of the Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 is the fact it’s heavier than most masticating juicers, so moving it from your counter into an area for storage after a juicing session could be a bit awkward.

It can’t be used to juice wheatgrass effectively unless you purchase an additional greens attachment. Furthermore, the attachment itself has had very poor feedback from consumers, so we wouldn’t recommend this juicer if you intend to juice a lot of wheatgrass.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE CHAMPION COMMERCIAL JUICER G5-PG-710

For its price, the Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 is nothing short of incredible. We are very impressed with the durability and versatility of this machine. Even the cleanup itself is a breeze which isn’t something we can often say about a masticating juicer.

There are juicers out there that give you a higher volume of juice, but not in this price range. If you’re tired of juicers breaking down on you and you’re looking for an efficient, masticating juicer, then this is a machine to go for.

BREVILLE JE98XL JUICE FOUNTAIN PLUS 850-WATT JUICING MACHINE REVIEW

The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juicing Machine is an updated version of the Breville JE95XL. Despite the Juice Fountain Plus being the second cheapest model out of the seven juicers in Breville’s juicer line-up, it still delivers the power and performance to make delicious juice at a rapid speed.

One critical problem which some consumers experienced with the previous Juice Fountain Plus model was the motor burning out. To address this problem for the Breville JE98XL, Breville implemented an LED for overload protection to give you ample warning if the motor is under strain.

For the price range which it’s in, the Juice Fountain Plus is regarded by many people as the best juicer available. Juicer Reviews sets out to discover whether it really is the best in its class.

BREVILLE JE98XL JUICE FOUNTAIN PLUS 850-WATT JUICING MACHINE FEATURES

BREVILLE JE98XL JUICE FOUNTAIN PLUS 850-WATT JUICING MACHINE
  • 850-watt motor
  • Dual-speed settings (low/high)
  • Large 3-inch feeding chute
  • Stainless steel cutting disc
  • Safety locking arm
  • LED for overload protection
  • Dishwasher safe parts
  • Includes cleaning brush and Juice jug with 1-liter capacity and froth separator
  • 1 year limited warranty

Design

The Breville JE98XL is designed to Breville’s usual high standards. The body is finished in silver satin which gives the juicer the stylish appearance of a stainless steel appliance. The housing is made of high quality plastic unlike the higher-end models in Breville’s juicer line-up which feature stainless steel and die-cast metal housing. The main concern with the silver satin finish is that it will wear away over time, but realistically by the time this occurs most people will have either replaced the juicer or upgraded to a higher-end juicer.

The rubber feet below the appliance provide added sturdiness and ensure that the juicer doesn’t shake or wobble during operation.

Dual-speed Settings

The Breville JE98XL features two speed settings to allow you to get optimum extraction from softer produce and have the convenience of high-speed when juicing harder produce. The low speed setting runs at 6,500 RPM which is ideal for juicing soft fruits and leafy produce. The high speed setting runs at 12,000 RPM which is ideal for juicing dense fruits and vegetables such as carrots.

While this juicer lacks the variable 5-speed control of the Breville Ikon, the two speed settings simplify things and mean you don’t need to learn exactly which speed setting each produce should be juiced at to achieve the balance between speed and a high extraction rate.

Large 3-inch Feeding Chute

Most of us have experienced in the past, the time and effort involved slicing produce before putting them into a food processor. The Breville JE98XL saves you this problem by featuring a large 3-inch feeding chute which can fit in many whole produce without requiring any prep work.

Safety locking arm

The safety locking arm on the Breville JE98XL gives you added peace of mind that the juicer can only be operated once the locking arm is securely in place. This safety feature is especially useful if you have children.

PROS AND CONS OF THE BREVILLE JE98XL JUICE FOUNTAIN PLUS 850-WATT JUICING MACHINE

Pros

The Breville JE98XL is very user-friendly, compact and robustly designed. The silver satin finish allows it to blend in nicely with even the most contemporary of kitchens.

The 850-watt motor gives you ample power to juice fruits and vegetables at a rapid speed. The dual-speed settings are very useful for getting maximum yield from each produce you juice.

Easy to clean, providing you clean all 5 parts straight after juicing. If you don’t fancy hand washing the parts, you can put them in the dishwasher to make the cleaning task even easier.

The LED for overload protection is very useful for preventing the occurrence of motor burnout as it gives you indication if too much strain is being put on the motor.

The provided 1 litre juice jug has a froth separator which is great for removing the froth from your juice.

The noise level it makes during operation is relatively quiet for a centrifugal juicer.

Low price. The value which the Breville JE98XL offers is unprecedented.

Cons

For leafy greens, the Breville JE98XL is too fast to get a good amount of juice from them. If you juice a lot of leafy greens we advice you buy a masticating juicer instead.

Quite a lot of foam is produced due to the high speed it juices at. However, the froth separator on the juice jug does a good job of removing most of this foam.

The 1-year warranty is a little short for our liking, but based on our quality trend analysis this juicer has a good lifespan so we wouldn’t recommend purchasing an extended warranty.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE BREVILLE JE98XL JUICE FOUNTAIN PLUS 850-WATT JUICING MACHINE

If you’re not a heavy juicer who needs a commercial grade machine, you’ll be pleased as punch with the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juicing Machine. The power this machine puts out is quite staggering and can handle the hardest of produce to give you a delicious tasty juice drink in minutes.

If you can stretch your budget a little further, Breville’s next model up – the Breville BJE510XL Ikon, has a few key improvements. The base and feed chute are made of stainless steel for extra durability. It also features a 900-watt motor opposed to the 850-watt motor in the Juice Fountain Plus. There are also 5-speed settings to give you optimum control over the speed which your produce is juiced at.

Both the Breville JE98XL and Breville BJE510XL Ikon are fantastic mid-range juicers which are both functional and attractive. If you can afford it we recommend you go for the Breville BJE510XL Ikon due to the extra durability the stainless steel construction provides.

BREVILLE 800CPXL DIE-CAST STAINLESS-STEEL MOTORIZED CITRUS PRESS REVIEW

If you intend to juice mostly citrus fruits such as oranges, limes and lemons as part of your juicing regime then investing in a citrus juicer is wise for maximum efficiency and minimum hassle. The Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized Citrus Press boasts of several unique features which make it stand out above other citrus juicers in its price range.

The Breville 800CPXL earns top marks from an overwhelming majority of consumers for its beautiful stainless design, high-speed and ease of use. Juicer Reviews takes a closer look at this model to see if it really is the best of the best.

BREVILLE 800CPXL DIE-CAST STAINLESS-STEEL MOTORIZED CITRUS PRESS FEATURES

BREVILLE 800CPXL DIE-CAST STAINLESS-STEEL MOTORIZED
  • High-quality brushed stainless steel housing
  • Industrial strength, high-speed quiet motor
  • Revolutionary active-arm press featuring soft grip handle
  • Quadra-Fin™ juicing cone for optimum juice extraction
  • 2 filters provide variable pulp control
  • Cord storage

Design

The design team at Breville have done a stellar job with this citrus press. The machine is housed in high-grade stainless steel for outstanding durability and exquisite looks. If you have a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances then this machine will blend in perfectly.

The power cord is a bit too short for our liking, but this can be extended with an extension lead if you don’t have a power outlet nearby.

Easy Assembly / Clean-up

We’re pleased to see that the Breville 800CPXL is a piece of cake to assemble. With just 3 parts needed to be put together, it can be assembled in less than a minute even from a juicing novice.

Clean-up is also a quick task, taking just a couple of minutes. Just simply remove the cone, strainer basket and bowl from the base then rinse them under warm water and give the strainer basket a good scrub with a brush then leave the parts to dry.

Active-Arm Press

The active-arm press system utilizes built-in sensors which cleverly monitor the arms position so the cone only spins when it contacts the fruit. The spherical dome perfectly centres the fruit on the cone to ensure you get a consistently high level of extraction from every fruit you juice.

High-speed Citrus Juicing

The 110-watt motor powering this machine makes juicing effortless on your part. A light push of the soft-grip handle is all that is required for the machine to go into action and press your fruit.

Quadra-Fin™ Juicing Cone

For maximum convenience, the stainless steel Quadra-Fin juicing cone can juice citrus fruits of any size without involving any hassle of changing cones. The cone features four multi-tiered fins which have been meticulously positioned to ensure that the citrus fruit stays securely in place whilst being pressed.

Comes With Two Strainers

Depending on your personal taste, you may like a lot of pulp in your juice or only very little. The two types of strainers included give you the choice of either a small holed strainer so little pulp will get into your juice or a coarsely holed strainer if you prefer a lot of pulp.

Safety

Safety is assured with the Breville 800CPXL thanks to key safety measures in place. The machines safety mechanism uses a dual-switch which prevents the cone from spinning until the arm is lowered down and adequate pressure is applied on top of the juicing cone.

Drip-stop Spout

Another nice feature is the drip-stop spout. With a quick upward flick of your finger, the spout can be closed to stop juice coming out of the bowl at your convenience. This feature is particularly handy when you want to change glasses and avoid any dripping occurring.

PROS AND CONS OF THE BREVILLE 800CPXL DIE-CAST STAINLESS-STEEL MOTORIZED CITRUS PRESS

Pros:

The Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized Citrus Press combines innovative features with great looks.

Extracts a high amount of citrus juice at high-speed and operates almost silently.

The heavy-duty parts ensure a high level of durability.

It’s very easy to use due to its revolutionary design.

Easy to clean and assemble.

Cons:

The high height of the handle makes it too high to store under most kitchen cabinets. We would like Breville to incorporate a handle lock down feature in their next model.

Another lacuna is that the bowl which stores the juice is rather small so it has to be emptied out around every dozen fruits.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE BREVILLE 800CPXL DIE-CAST STAINLESS-STEEL MOTORIZED CITRUS PRESS

The Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized Citrus Press is a first class juicer which delivers fast and efficient citrus juicing with minimal amount of effort needed. Its solid, sturdy die-cast construction and heavy-duty components makes the machine both stable and durable.

If you’re currently using a hand press citrus juicer then you’re in for a treat if you upgrade to this machine. We recommend the Breville 800CPXL to anyone who regularly juices citrus fruits.

BIG BOSS JUICER| 700W 18000 RPM REVIEW

The Big Boss Juicer brings powerful juicing capabilities to your kitchen with its high-speed 700-watt motor and large 3-inch feeding tube. This appliance is marketed as a high-end juicer despite its low to mid-range price so it’s still within reach for those on a budget.

Consumer feedback on the Big Boss Juicer has been mostly favourable with an overall 4 star rating on Amazon and similar positive feedback across the internet, indicating good consumer satisfaction.

BIG BOSS JUICER, 700W 18,000 RPM FEATURES

  • 2 speed settings
  • 700 Watt motor (18,000 RPM)
  • Large mouth opening
  • Stainless steel design
  • Dishwasher safe parts

Stainless Steel Design

The exterior of the Big Boss Juicer is made of stainless steel, which gives it a sleek, attractive appearance and ensures it blends in nicely with most other modern kitchen appliances.

However, the housing and most other parts are made of plastic. This is a little concerning regarding its durability long term, but given the fact this juicer cost 3-4 times less than juicers which have full stainless steel construction, you are getting what you pay for.

2-Speed Settings

Unlike most centrifugal juicers at this price point which tend to only feature a single speed setting, the Big Boss Juicer features 2 speed settings (low/high) so you can use the lower speed to get optimum extraction from soft fruits and vegetables so juice isn’t gone to waste and nutrients aren’t lost.

700 Watt motor (18,000 RPM)

The 700-watt motor operates at speeds up to 18,000 RPM. Although the motor isn’t heavy-duty, it has enough power to juice hard vegetables such as beets and carrots at a reasonable extraction rate.

Large mouth opening

The large mouth opening is 3-inches wide, which allows you to fit whole produce in the feeding tube without cutting them up beforehand, reducing the preparation time required. Larger fruits and vegetables will not fit down the feeding tube without being sliced, so some preparation will be required for them.

Cleaning

Cleaning the Big Boss Juicer is rather easy apart from when getting to the cutter/filter. This part is a bit awkward to clean due to the ingraining of the pulp on the edges. The included cleaning isn’t very good, so we advise you to invest in a more solid brush with harder bristles which will do a better job at tackling that pulp.

All the parts are dishwasher safe, but most consumers have found that cleaning the parts using hot soapy water immediately after juicing is very effective.

PROS AND CONS OF THE BIG BOSS JUICER

Pros

The Big Boss Juicer ticks a lot of the right boxes. It’s stylish, easy to assemble, powerful and produces a good amount of juice, leaving a dry pulp.

The multi-speed option is very handy when it comes to juicing soft produce.

The included recipe book has some great tips on food safety to educate you on the dos and don’ts of juicing.

It is easy to clean on the whole, due to being easy to disassemble and comprising of dishwasher safe parts.

Low priced.

Cons

The included cleaning brush is rather flimsy, so we advise either using a different brush or purchase a good quality brush such as the Oxo Steel Dish Brush.

The pulp container isn’t transparent so if you like to juice a lot of produce in one go, you need to check it occasionally to ensure it doesn’t overfill. Although the container is generously sized so this shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Some consumers have encountered a problem with the motor burning out after owning the juicer for only a short period, so there are some concerns about durability. However, this doesn’t seem to be a common trend so we aren’t too overly concerned about this.

It’s rather loud in operation especially when juicing hard produce, but given the high speed it zips through produce this shouldn’t be much of an issue.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE BIG BOSS JUICER, 700W 18,000 RPM

The Big Boss Juicer has impressed those of us at Juicer Reviews as it represents incredibly good value for money. The fact you can make other things besides juice such as baby food, soup and sauces, is an added bonus and adds to this machines versatility.

However, the fact it is built mostly of parts made of plastic means it lacks the durability of higher-end centrifugal juicers such as the Juice Fountain Elite.

We recommend the Big Boss Juicer to those who are either on a budget or want to buy their first juicer to see if juicing is something they want to pursue before investing in a more expensive and durable juicer.

  • Titanium reinforced cutting disc
  • Heavy-duty body made of die-cast metal
  • 3-inch sized Feed Tube

  • Backed by 1-year Replacement Warranty

Easy Setup

Breville couldn’t really have made the setup of the Breville BJE820XL any easier. The supplied manual gives you instructions on how to put the parts together in an easy 7-step process. Two discs are included (a juicer disc and a puree disc), allowing you to operate the machine as a juicer or a juice processor.

5-speed Dial

The Breville BJE820XL is powered by a 1,200 watt motor which is controlled by a 5-speed dial for variable speed from as low as 6,500 rpm up to 13,000 rpm. The low speed is ideal for juicing leafy vegetables and soft fruit. The top speed is ideal for juicing dense fruits and vegetables such as beets or carrots.

3-inch sized Feed Tube

The large 3.3” sized feed tube allows you to feed in fruits and vegetables without needing to chop them up first, minimizing the preparation time required.

Cleaning

Clean up is a breeze due to the way Breville have cleverly designed this machine. The parts are easy to disassemble from the 1200 watt base. All of the parts are safe to wash in the top shelf of your dishwasher. The only part you shouldn’t put in your dishwasher is the filter basket. A cleaning brush is included which allows you to clean the micromesh filter.

PROS AND CONS OF THE BREVILLE BJE820XL DUAL DISC JUICE PROCESSOR

Pros

The Breville BJE820XL functions as both a juicer and also a juicer processor, saving you the space of having two separate machines to handle both tasks.

The 5-speed dial makes it highly versatile for juicing a wide range of produce and getting a dry pulp.

Very well engineered and housed in a die-cast stainless steel body for maximum durability, making it a true commercial grade appliance.

Impressively quiet even on the highest speed setting.

It is very easy and quick to clean.

Cons

The appliance is rather tall, being almost 17 inches in height so those with kitchen cabinets positioned fairly low down, may find storage to be a little awkward.

It is only backed by a 1-year warranty.

JUICER REVIEWS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE BREVILLE BJE820XL DUAL DISC JUICE PROCESSOR

The Breville BJE820XL Dual Disc Juice Processor is an expensive piece of equipment, but it’s extremely good at what it does. Its robust die-cast steel construction and heavy base give you the confidence that this machine has been built to last. With its 1200 watt motor, this powerful machine has the raw power to handle anything.

The convenience of being able to swap out the juicer disc for a puree disc to make 100% fruit smoothies is very handy. If you don’t need a puree feature for making smoothies and various healthy dips, we recommend you get the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor instead.

Bottom line is, if you need a juicer and you love smoothies, but don’t have a dedicated blender this machine is highly recommended.
