It is so powerful I usually don’t even use the pusher except to cover the top so your ceiling doesn’t get covered with stuff.
Clean up is really a 2 minute operation and I don’t even own a dishwasher. It will stain eventually, as every juicer I have ever owned does. Carrot juice would make a great dye.
This juicer makes much smaller pieces of pulp though – and my experience so far has been that it gets just as much juice from a pound of carrots as other more powerful juicers I owned.
Solid piece of engineering, sturdy long lasting parts, excellent workmanship. Best features are its simplicity and ease of cleaning.
Though named “Compact” the unit is pretty large. The 700 HP motor is powerful and not too loud. Pulp container is of decent capacity. Do not expect to juice entire apples, unless you are using very small apples.
The pulp extract is pretty dry so you are getting almost all the juice out of the fruit/vegetables with this unitThe Breville is the best juicer I have had.
It is an example of good product design in that it is simple, practical and attractive. It is powerful, has a feed tube large enough to take large whole carrots, beets and small apples. It is quiet, comes apart easy and cleans up quickly. The capture pitcher which nests into the machine has a nice cover so you can store the juice for later. If making juice is a hassle you’re going to put off doing it. This juicer makes juicing easy and not a hassle.
For the price the breville bje200xl 700 watt compact juicer is a good price. I have noticed recently that amazon seems to have the best pricing and you can probably pick up a used or referbished one pretty cheap.
