Nutrients in the juice, fiber in the pulp
Centrifugal juicers get the job done quickly, but what if you want your juice smooth with some pulp ? That’s where masticating juicers come in. Also known as slow juicers or single auger juicers, they crush and squeeze rather than shredding. That means that it maximizes the amount of nutrients extracted and more of the fiber stays in, making for a delicious glass of thick, smooth juice.
Why choose a slow juicer?
There are two main types of juicer: centrifugal juicers and slow (or masticating) juicers. Centrifugal juicers work by shredding the fruits and vegetables and then spinning at a high speed to separate the pulp and juice. Slow or masticating juicers crush and grind the fruits and vegetables to extract the juice, then filter out the pulp. They're called slow juicers because they don't spin rapidly, not because it takes a long time to make juice; it only takes minutes to produce juice! Slow juicers produce drier pulp than centrifugal juicers, and extract more juice from leafy greens like kale. Some people have a preference from juice from a slow juicer, since it tends to be less frothy and more thick.
Versatility for maximum yield and results
Masticating juicers are best at juicing softer fruits like berries and wheatgrass and excel at juicing leafy greens, but can also juice harder fruits and vegetables like apples and carrots. Because the Juice Fountain Crush juices slowly, it keeps more of the fiber and less of the froth in the juice and produces very dry pulp.
Juicing made simple
The Juice Fountain Crush makes juicing and cleanup easy. With features like a safe start system that requires all parts to be locked in before the juicer starts, reverse direction control, and an overload protection system that automatically stops the machine from operating when the load is too high, the Juice Fountain Crush makes operation safe and easy. To cleanup and flush out the system between making different kinds of juice without having to disassemble the entire machine, simply pour in 1-2 cups of water while the motor is running to flush the previous ingredients through. It comes with a cleaning brush to remove the pulp from the mesh basket, and the handle of the brush is the perfect size to clear out the pulp chute of the juicer. And, even though it’s powerful, the Juice Fountain Crush’s 240 watt motor runs quietly so your morning glass of juice won’t wake the rest of the household.
Designed with the consumer in mind
The upright design gives the Juice Fountain Crush a smaller footprint than horizontal masticating juicers, making it easier to fit on your counters. It includes a juicing jug for catching the juice that’s extracted, a pulp bin for the pulp, and also includes a filter cleaning brush, which can be used for brushing out the filter or (using the smaller end of the brush) cleaning the pulp out of any crevasses.

The prep work is longer than a centrifugal juicer, and you do have to put the victims (ahem, vegetables) in more delicately, but the taste, texture, and nutritional difference will keep you coming back for more.
The juices also last longer because the ingredients aren't exposed to the air as much as with a centrifugal type.
This unit is very quiet. I'm not sure what to compare it to, maybe an ant hill rock concert. It won't wake you up, but you'll wanna shake your thorax if you're in the kitchen.
Beware: Juicing recipes may have to be halved using this juicer! You get so much more out of each chunk than you ever have before.
The biggest con would be the cleaning. But really, if you start filling up the sink with soapy hot water while you're chopping your ingredients, it's not bad. You'll thank yourself for not letting it sit dirty for too long. It comes with a brush that really gets into the mesh that keeps the pulp from getting into your juice. (pulp in juice can make it harder for your body to absorb the nutrients)
Do your body a favor and take a chance with a hot little juicer named Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer.
I have found that some ingredients need to be cut into smaller pieces than I expected. For example, carrots and beets, or anything that is hard. If you don't the machine will make very loud crunching sounds, and it will probably get stuck. The reverse switch is handy, but I think it's best to take the little extra time so that you don't have to use it.
I have also found that cutting stringy or stalky items into very short pieces is less likely to result in clogging the exit chute. It took me a few uses to realize that the handle of the screen cleaning brush is good for clearing out the exit chute if stringy materials start to build up too much.
Cleanup is quick. The parts assemble and disassemble easily. Give the screen, especially the lower part, a careful cleaning.
I started using the juicer after I returned home from the holidays and have been very happy with it. A couple of times it has jammed but a flip of the button to reverse the motor and the jam has cleared without me needing to do it manually. After a couple of times assembling the unit it's become a snap attach the juicer to the base unit. I have found it easy to clean - takes a couple minutes.
I do find it interesting that Amazon shows a List Price of $599.99 when the Breville website shows a List Price of $299.00. I'm happy to have saved $120.00 but don't be fooled into thinking you are getting a better deal than you really are.
It's easy to use and easy to clean. You will not have any issues with it jamming up if you just cut everything in smaller pieces. Half the fun is inventing your own combinations and trying veggies that otherwise you may have never eaten. Like kale or jicama!
When I spend money on organic, fresh produce for the purpose of juicing, I expect that my juicer will help me yield the most juice possible from said produce. The first item we juiced with this particular Breville model was oranges and grapefruit. The pulp was so wet that juice was coming out of the juice spout as well as the pulp spout. There's no excuse for this!
Many years ago, I owned a Juiceman Juicer (ala Jay Kordich) and I got spoiled by that thing ... No matter what I was juicing, the pulp would come out bone dry. Mind you, the Juiceman was not made for juicing greens really. It was more ideal for fruits and veggies with a higher water content than leaves.
It's back to the drawing board. There's no way I am going to waste my money juicing with this thing.
My older Juiceman broke from being dropped while moving years ago. I'm going to go buy another Juiceman online right now and will be *donating* this Breville to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. What a disappointment!
