Centrifugal Juicers

Breville JE98XL Reviewed

Breville JE98XL Review

This review of the Breville JE98XL (a centrifugal model) is somewhat unfair. You see I am used to using the fabulous Omega VRT350 (a masticating model). But I will attempt to look at it from the perspective of someone who is both a first-time juicer and on a budget (JE98XL cost: $150 vs VRT350 cost: $350).

The first thing this review needs to mention is that the JE98XL is famous. This juicer has appeared in a movie. Can you guess which movie it was? That’s right… the JE98XL appeared in “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” alongside Joe Cross. If you’ve not seen the movie you should go watch it right now. At the time of writing this it’s free to watch on Hulu. Joe Cross traveled across the USA with his trusty Breville juicer so it should be pretty good right?

Well of course it’s a great juicer but at $150 it’s obviously going to be a centrifugal model and come with all the drawbacks of not being a masticating model (sorry but I like masticating juicers). Of course it’s well constructed and a reliable juicer from a respected brand. You only have to look at the reviews on this and other Breville juicers to see that Breville is doing a great job of making juicers. And the price point is well chosen. It’s an affordable centrifugal juicer that looks good and does what it supposed to, plus there’s dual speed which is a bonus.

Hamilton Beach 67650

Hamilton Beach 67650 Big Mouth Juicer

The Hamilton Beach 67650 is a no “bells & whistles” juicer. It’s a really basic centrifugal juicer. At around $55 it’s meant as a juicer for those on a very tight budget. It’s not fantastic but it does the job well enough. It’s not super strong and those of you who are heavy handed may break this juicer, but it’s really not a bad juicer for the money.

If you treat this juicer gently it will juice for you and it does seem to get a lot of good reviews. But it is what it is… a cheaply made juicer with nothing to really shout about.

Breville 800JEXL

Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite

The first thing to note about the Breville 800JEXL (apart from the $300 price) is that it’s a centrifugal juicer. Usually when we’re talking about juicers in this price range they’re masticating. So why pay $300 for a centrifugal juicer?

This is supposed to be an awesome centrifugal juicer that provides commercial performance in a home juicer. It’s got features like dual speed control, a powerful 1000 watt motor and a patented direct central feed system which is supposed to yield more juice.

It has an extra wide feed chute (always an advantage ) and titanium reinforced cutting blades.
