The Breville BJE200XL is currently the lowest priced juicer on offer from Breville. It sells at around $100 and is of course a centrifugal juicer. This model seems to get mainly positive reviews. Indeed Breville juicers seem to be well respected on the whole which adds to their already good reputation in the kitchen appliance market.
It’s worth noting that this isn’t the juicer used by Joe Cross in his movie” Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”. That was the Breville JE98XL which is a bit more expensive, selling for around $150 online. It too is a centrifugal juicer although it comes with a more powerful motor and dual speed control.
The Breville BJE510XL is a top end centrifugal juicer. It’s price point is interesting in that at $200 it’s bordering on masticating juicer territory. So why buy a pricey centrifugal juicer when you could pay a little more and get a low end masticating juicer?
The answer is features. If you’re someone who likes a lot of features then this is the juicer for you. Personally I would sacrifice features for better juice quality but hey, it’s your money you’re spending.
I would not consider Hamilton Beach a premium brand. It’s no surprise then that most of their juicers fall into the sub $100 price range. Obviously this means the Hamilton Beach 67601 is a centrifugal model. At around $75 it’s $25 cheaper than Breville’s BJE200XL, so is it worth saving $25 or should you save up and go for the Breville?
First thing that strikes you about this juicer is that it doesn’t feel like you just spent $75. That said it really isn’t that bad of a juicer. It does the job it was intended for but I can’t help thinking that the construction on the Breville BJE200XL is way better and at just $25 more that would be my choice.
