Excerpt: My family and I have jumped on the health conscious bandwagon. We purchased the Breville too soon after reading several reviews online and saw that it was the best choice for us...at the time. However, after a few uses with the Breville juicer I have had a slight change of heart.
Excerpt: It takes a lot of time to read all the reviews and try and figure out what products are best. I scratched my head over juicers for a while before I finally bought this Breville model. So far, it works very well and I am pleased. Seems well made. I think I made a good choice.
Pros: Easy To Clean, Fast, Large Feeder Tube, Produces Lots of Juice
Excerpt: This Breville juicer worked very well for our 10 day juice fast, and we have used it since for various juices. It handles a wide variety of fresh produce like a champ, including kale, spinach, apples, garlic... Anything we threw at it.
My 8 year old likes running it but isn't crazy about drinking the veggies.

Summary: If I were buying the juices in restaurants or co-ops, that I have made, in the month that I have had it, I would have easily spent $100. It takes up a bit of space and doesn't finely reduce kale like one with more power might, but as a starter juicer, I am completely satisfied.
Excerpt: After all my other juicers failing on me I decided to pick up the Breville Juice Fountain Compact Juicer. What I like about this juicer is that you can put whole fruits and vegetables into the juicer without have to cut them or dice them before hand.
Summary: This was one of the best purchases I have ever made. I bought this as a gift for my mom after we watched the documentary "Fat, Sick & nearly Dead". Ever since it arrived my mom has had a lot of fun coming up with her own concoctions and trying new fruits and veggies that she never would have eaten...
Summary: 3.5 stars (if I could give a half-star). Several intelligent design features and it seems quality. However I wonder if the design or the speed (it's really fast) or some combination thereof causes it to sacrifice extraction efficiency.
