Breville JE900 Juice Fountain - If you take your juicing seriously, then you will definitely fall in love with the Breville Juice Fountain. Taking juicing to a new level, the juice fountain can give you a glass of juice in just 5 seconds!! It can do this with a powerful 600 watt motor and a patented extra large feed chute that can juice fruit & vegetables whole!
Get a nutritious start to your day with fresh tomato, carrot, apple, or orange juice--or invent your own healthy blend. This powerful (and some would say noisy) 600-watt juicer churns out a quart of juice in just one minute. An extra-wide feed tube saves chopping time since it accommodates whole tomatoes, carrots, and small apples, and the removable parts make this one of the fastest juicers to clean. To operate, simply turn the juicer on and insert washed whole or chopped fruits and vegetables through the feed tube--pulp and seeds will shoot out one side into the provided pulp container, and juice will pour out the spout. To catch the juice, you can use either a glass or a provided juice container with lid. The juice container features a handy divider to separate the juice from the froth when pouring. Weighing thirteen pounds, the juice extractor measures 15 by 6-1/2 by 16 inches and comes with a one-year warranty. A helpful instruction booklet that includes tips and recipes is included to get you started. --Ann Bieri
From the Manufacturer
Changing the World, One Apple at a Time
Unrivalled power meets highest quality components and revolutionary design in this life changing appliance. Touted as North Americas fastest juicer, after being timed making an 8-ounce glass of juice in an astonishing 5 seconds, the worlds fastest juicer might be a more apt description. Designed by innovative, world-renowned engineer Keith Hensel in 1999, the Breville Juice Fountain was the worlds first domestic juicer to accept whole fruit and vegetables with no chopping, peeling, slicing, or dicing.
Named for its ability to produce literally a fountain of continuous juice, where other juicers generate a mere trickle, the JE900 Juice Fountain has seriously changed the way the world looks at juice. Where traditional juice extractors require time consuming preparation, feeding, and cleaning, the Juice Fountain completes the whole home juicing experience in less time than it takes to brew a cup of coffee. The Juice Fountains ability to juice whole fruit, to reduce juicing time by up to 90%, and to yield up to 30% more juice, stems from a combination of innovations. Even its unofficial tagline as "a juice bar in your own home" doesnt do justice to just how fast and convenient the machine is. Thousands of families from Australia to Japan and everywhere in between enjoy fresh, healthy juice every day thanks to the Breville JE900 Juice Fountain.
600-Watt Centered Motor
The Juice Fountains motor is positioned directly under the drive shaft so no power is lost in electrical transition or resistance. At 600 watts, the motor is one of the most powerful domestic juicers available, and its centered location directly over the drive shaft means a true 600 watts of power is delivered to the cutter and filter. The higher wattage not only delivers faster and more efficient juicing, its also powerful enough to juice regularly without significant stress on the motor.
Patented Center Knife Blade Cutter Assembly
The Juice Fountain is the worlds only large feed tube juicer to feature a centered feed tube and knife blade cutter assembly. Other juicers receive fruit and vegetables toward the circumference of the cutter-blade putting uneven pressure on the cutter and filter. As a result, it is not possible to balance the cutting assembly to attain sufficient speed for optimum juicing. The patented Juice Fountain design accepts fruit directly on to the center of the cutting assembly where a small, dual-bladed Italian made knife shreds the pulp into tiny particles and pushes it against the filter.
Over 14,000 RPMs!
The unique centered cutter assembly, together with the 600 watt motor, allows the Juice Fountain to deliver unparalleled speed to the filter. The Juice Fountains Italian micro-mesh filter spins at an incredible 14,500 revolutions per minute. The greater the revolutions, the faster the fruit can be juiced, and the greater the pressure on the pulp against the filter. Brevilles lightning speed filter G-forces the maximum amount of juice from the pulp and makes an 8-ounce glass of juice in as little as 5 seconds (tested using apples). The 14,500 rpms of the Juice Fountain compares to about 5,000 rpms on most other juicers.
Italian-Made Stainless Steel Micro Mesh Cutter and Filter
Italian engineering is renowned for its uncompromising quality and eye for detail. The Juice Fountains micromesh filter is no exception. Comparing this to other filters it is easy to see that the engineering differences are significant. The filter holes on the Breville filter are so tiny that the individual holes cant be detected with the naked eye yet the screen is see-through. The thousands and thousands of tiny, micro-mesh holes maximize the juicing surface area to squeeze every last drop of juice from the pulp. Because the holes are so small, they effectively block any seeds, pulp, or rind to deliver nothing but fresh, delicious juice.
3-Inch Wide Feed Tube
The Juice Fountain features the largest circular feed tube of all juicers in America. The unique rounded shape allows for easy insertion of whole apples, pears, tomatoes, peeled oranges, even handfuls of carrots at a time. Where other juicers take several minutes of chopping, peeling, slicing, and dicing, the Breville is large enough and powerful enough to accept whole fruit. This revolutionary design reduces juicing time by up to 90%, making the Juice Fountain a practical way to get natural nutrients and vitamins for the whole family each and every day.
Extra Large Pulp Container
The extra large pulp container is designed to fit a standard plastic grocery bag to capture all the pulp for no-fuss clean up. Because the pulp is exceptionally dry with the Breville Juicer, and the pulp container is so large, it is practical to juice continually for several minutes before the pulp container needs to be emptied. For those that dont want to waste the pulp, the Juice Fountains free instruction manual has delicious recipes for muffins and cakes using the pulp.
Smooth Rounded Dishwasher Safe Parts
Easy cleaning was at the top of the priority list for the Breville design team when engineering the Juice Fountain. Having tested dozens of juicers and spoken to thousands of consumers, the overwhelming response was that juice extractors are just too difficult to clean. The Breville Juice Fountain is a delightful contrast. Not only is the pulp container designed to insert a grocery bag to capture the pulp, but there are only three other parts that require cleaning. All of them are top-shelf dishwasher safe and feature smooth, rounded surfaces that rinse easily under the tap. Even washing by hand takes only seconds as pulp residue slides right off the smooth surfaces. The Juice Fountain comes with a bonus cleaning brush designed to slide effortlessly around the micro-mesh cutter and filter making cleaning a breeze.
Bonus Juice Pitcher with Froth Separator
The Juice Fountain comes with a bonus 1-quart juice pitcher. Like the machine itself, the pitcher is cleverly designed with an adjustable froth separator. Some juice recipes produce a froth residue at the top of the juice and while some consumers enjoy the froth, others would rather drink their juice without it. The easy slide froth separator allows the user to have as little or as much froth as they desire. The bonus pitcher also comes with an air tight lid to store left over juice in the fridge.
The Breville Story
Brevilles first electrical appliance rolled off the factory line in 1932. Over 70 years, and 30 million satisfied customers later, theyre still one of the worlds most innovative name in kitchen electrics. From the worlds first scissor action sandwich maker, to the worlds first juicer to juice whole fruit, Breville continues to bring clever ideas to life. Their renowned design team ensures that every Breville product makes life simpler, works smarter, and looks better, than any other appliance on Earth. Despite Brevilles global success, they only entered the U.S. market in January 2003 and are quickly becoming one of the fastest growing brands in the country. Breville have a proud history of innovation and an uncompromising vision to bring more great ideas to life.
After my flimsy Juiceman Junior finally went to small appliance heaven, I decided to look around for a machine that I can actually live with = use it without hating to clean the thing afterwards. I'd never heard of Breville before, but the solid 5-star rating caught my eye. The idea of a wide enough feeder tube so I don't have to spend so much prep time was enticing, but what made me decide to buy the machine (cheaper some other place, look around) were the high marks on cleanup and performance. - Usually I don't write a review right away, but this juicer simply blew me away. What a beautiful piece of well thought-through craftmanship! Being German, I certainly prefer lasting performance over flimsy throw-away items, and this machine looks and feels like it will stand the test of time. I don't find the motor any louder than my previous machine, so that's not a problem. One reviewer wrote to put a damp paper towel around the pulp catcher rim to prevent tiny bits of pulp from flying out. I still had few tiny escapees, probably because I didn't do it right, but one quick wipe took care of it. Cleanup is indeed almost a joy compared to other machines. The mesh screen is build solidly, no plastic parts to wear out where it counts. This machine is worth every penny and then some, and I thank all previous reviewers for having helped me select such a wonderful piece of kitchen equipment!
I got this machine as a birthday present and am over the moon about it. I've made some wonderful juices...papaya/apple, apple/carrot/ginger, and citrus mix. Anything I put in is thoroughly juiced...very little moisture is left in the pulp container. It is loud but this doesn't bother me at all. I do find that I have to cut the fruit into smaller wedges...whole apples, in spite of what's advertised on the box, do NOT fit down the spout. Still, a very minor point. I highly recommend this machine...for the price, you can't beat it. And clean-up takes all of 5 minutes if you're thorough. Even comes with its own scrub brush.

I research almost everything I buy: my blender, coffeemaker, palm pilot, my car, electric razor, laundry detergent, etc. After about 5 hours of research, I decided on the Breville JE900. My mother has a juicer from the TV guy (Jack LaL...) which I thought was decent. But I wanted to try something different, and the Breville had the highest marks I could find for the price. Assembly was a snap after unpacking the box. While the juicer is mostly plastic, its high grade plastic and looks sharp on the counter. The biggest differences between the Breville and the Jack LaL... juicer are: 1) size, 2) cleanup, and 3) noise. The Breville is smaller (but juices just as much), MUCH easier to clean (the Breville mesh screen quickly snaps in and out, while the other one requires a special tool to unscrew the screen), and is louder than the Jack LaL juicer. All of the reviews I read said "the Breville is TOO LOUD." It may be a bit noisy, but it can crunch through hard pineapple, apple cores, grape stems, hard broccoli stalks, etc. Its a power-house! In summary, a great buy at a great price (I didn't pay the full price - I found a site that sold it for about $30 cheaper, but charged $16 for shipping). It arrived in 5 days and I've been using it everyday before and after work. Enjoy!
Most careful buyers research before buying, and with a potentially life-enhancing device like the Breville Juice Extractor, it is wisdom to compare juicers. Before I purchased the Breville, I compared it to its primary competition, most notably Jack LaLane's PowerJuicer. Fortunately, I had friends with both so I was able to make side by side comparisons. In the areas that count--ease of use, clean up time, amount of juice extracted, reliability of construction--both were roughly equal. The LaLane juicer was noticeably quieter, but the warranty was for merely 90 days while the Breville was for 1 year. In the world of tradeoff, I could endure a brief burst of vacuum cleaner level noise secure in the knowledge that the first year of operation is critical in deciding whether the cost was worth it. Essentially, both Juicers are quite similar and represent the inescapable world of tradeoff between desire for healthy living and the irritation factor in achieving that living. The nature of any juicer is to provide juice. What separates the juicer also rans from the truly quality devices is the convenience. And it is precisely here that the Breville stands out. No juicer user is immune from the rather tedius chore of cleaning the device, but the designers of the Breville juicer have minimized the fuss so that one can thoroughly clean the juicer within 3-4 minutes. This time frame suggests that, even for the Breville, one is not likely to make a single glass of juice at a time. Rather, one is far more likely to make several glasses for the family at mealtimes or snack times. The amount of juice extracted is another significant factor. The Breville juicer gets at least as much juice as the LaLane PowerJuicer.Read more ›
