The Breville BJS600XL is Breville’s answer to the Omega VRT350. It is Breville’s vertical masticating juicer aimed at savy juicers with a decent amount of cash to spend on a new juicer. At around $350 it feels slightly pricey compared with the Omega VRT350 which has a slightly higher price point (although you can get one on sale for around the same price of $350).
It would have been nice if Breville had priced it lower at say $320-$330 but it’s really not a bad juicer. Reviews are mainly positive and the juicer feels well constructed and it juices even hard produce with ease. However, I find it really hard to justify buying it when you can get the Omega for practically the same price. If you like Breville as a brand then this is a great juicer but I can’t help that feel Breville would have been better going for a lower price point. If it was me I would buy a VRT350 for this price.
Update: The Breville BJS600XL was recently on sale at Amazon for $209.99!!! Sorry if you missed out on that deal but I did tweet about it on Twitter. It’s currently selling at just under $300. This lower price makes this juicer a much more attractive proposition. I suggest you check the current price on Amazon when considering if you should purchase this juicer over other vertical masticating models. I still love the Omega VRT350 but the Breville BJS600XL is a great juicer too. Check out the latest price here.

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.
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. 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.
