This review is from: Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor (Kitchen)
I bought JE98XL Juicer for my wife and have had it about 2 months. This is our 1st Juicer so i'm no expert just reviewing what I have found.
1) After some research found that the 98xL replaced the 950 Breville because the motor was bad in the 950.
2) Juices carrots,whole apple and kwi,celery, ginger root very well.
3) softer things like bananas,small berries, fresh parsly and spinach NOT so well they get thrown into the pulp container. try to put in together with harder things to juice together. Some things (grapefruit) I just squeeze the juice in.
Fruit juices all taste good, lots of sugar and no fiber, remember you throw that away (pulp). The Vegetables ones you need to experiment on for a alright taste.
Overall I think a good juicer takes 2-5 minuts to rinse everything. Would be nice to be able to reuse all the pulp which I just throw away.
I would like to try a juicer that sqeezes the juice out.

I'm with you, save your fruit pulp for fruit smoothies and quick breads. Put your veggie pulp in soups, spaghetti sauce, chili, lasagna...etc. You get the picture. It adds a great flavor to your cooked meals...that is, when you aren't "rebooting"!!!! :)

FYI: You can't juice bananas! No juicer will do that. Bananas have to be blended in a blender. You also can't juice citrus in anything but a citrus juicer. I have friends who say they make delicious muffins from the pulp. You can also compost the pulp and use it in your garden.

I make my own dog food and add the veggie pulp to the dog food. If I didn't do that then adding it to soup is a good idea, or experiment with puttting it in baked goods. If you like carrot cake, it would save the time to grate carrots.
