Love this juicer
11 September 2013
Summary: This is my first juicer and I can't believe I waited so long to get one. (I was blending and straining before - what a mess!) I decided on the compact after much research because I wanted a versatile juicer with a small footprint. As the previous review said, some juice does get into the center area but the juicer is well-designed so any trickle can be easily transferred into the matching pitcher without issue.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Power, Easy to Clean, Size, Quiet, Design
Summary: The product seems to be of good quality however is too powerful. Its hard to say that of a juicer. When you use the juicer, the juice of whatever fruit or vegetable being used goes up the inside of the container and leaks under the lid and comes out the sides when tightly secured. This makes quite a mess on the counter. Because of the power, its also quite noisy.
Conclusion: "This was our first juicer. We bought it because my wife's nutritionist said it was the best value for beginners and they were right. We used it for over a year juicing gallons of fruits and vegetables every week. Eventually we wore out the blade and decided to upgrade to another brand. Only after juicing with a Jack LaLanne for over an hour did we realize what an amazing value our original Breville had been.
Conclusion: "I had a problem with the rubber feet on my juicer. Breville Customer Service responded quickly and addressed my problem with replacement at not charge. The support was astonishing. Its almost secondary, yet as important, to mention the juicer performs flawlessly and provides a healthy result.
Conclusion: "I have used this juicer for two weeks straight, juicing twice a day and found that fruit flies were entering and leaving through the back vent slots. Upon closer inspection, we discovered that juices had been leaking down in through the top of the motor shaft (around the base of the black plastic fitting that the mesh screen unit sits on), and building up above the motor and along the sides of the inside of the motor case. The smell was of fermentation.
Conclusion: "Love the juicer, use it every single morning. Word of caution though, I put the juicer components into the dishwasher (it's listed as dishwasher safe) and it melted the food pusher. Had to order a new one. Please adjust the info in the user guide to warn against putting in the dishwasher. Other than that, a really great product that we've recommended to all our friends and family.
Conclusion: "After only a week of use, the food pusher has warped in the dish washer such that it no longer goes all the way down. I have had to order a replacement. I will now be very careful about washing the juicer and am disappointed. I thought that it was dishwasher safe. Otherwise, so far so good. I love juicing.
Conclusion: "This is an excellent machine! Super-high quality and an incredible price. Easy and fast to make a juice and break down and clean (3 minutes or so). I was amazed at the free and fast shipping--ordered on a Monday and was sipping a fresh juice Saturday afternoon. Does not crowd my counter-top, is reasonably quiet, and processes the vegetables and fruits instantly. I will happily recommend this product and company to anyone.
Conclusion: "My daughter-in-law bought a Breville juicer and every time I went to see them in NYC she fixed me a glass of the "green" stuff every moring. After I got home this last time I decided that it was good way to get the veggies that I wasn't cooking for us. I shopped around until I found the Compact model at a discounted price (store was closing) and found this "juicing" process was even easier than I thought.
Conclusion: "My first juicer for a graduate student - the juice is delicious and I can use the pulp from my fruit to mix into yogurt and it is very tasty. I've had my juicer for two days. As of today, I've juiced apples, celery, cucumber, carrots, green pepper, onion, beets, and I have a bunch of fresh foods that I am planning on experimenting with. Warning: fresh apple juice is very sweet and you will feel like you just drank a double shot of coffee if you drink too much.
