This review is from: Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor (Kitchen)
I used an Omega 1000 for 7 years. The Omega would often get out of balance (you have to stop juicing, disassemble, clean and start over), has a small feed chute and at times would "spray" some juice from the spout.
The Breville 800 has the following great features:
Big feed chute. You can process 3 regular size carrots at once or three medium apples or oranges (stacked in the feed chute). No cutting needed. The chute is 3" in Dia and 7" tall.
Disassembles quickly. No screws. Fits easily in the dishwasher.
The pitcher included has a spout opening, so there's no overspray. Additionally, the lid is made to separate the foam from the juice.
Never gets out of balance because it's and ejection style juicer. It still does a great job of extracting the majority of juice with the high rpm motor.
Last, it looks very nice on the counter with the stainless steel construction.

thx for your review, Chris. however, this space is for the 1000, not the 800.

I think he meant the 800JEXL, not the wattage.

When you make orange juice with this juicer, do you have to peal the skin first or just stuck the whole thing in?

i have the model below this, i think 750hp, and i often use oranges/lemons for juicing. i can't say with 100% confidence because i don't juice just oranges, but from my experience, i can taste a little bitterness which i assume is from the white rind underneath the zest of the orange. when i'm not lazy, i peel off majority of the skin and there is no bitter taste.

Hi irunsoicaneat --
there was a big hoot laugh and a half on another thread because the initial reviewer also referred to HP (rather than WATT strength)! Some commenters got really cute and mentioned things like how they juiced oak trees and small redwoods ... a real riot ...
