Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus Centrifugal Juicer Review

Juice quality and yield:

Braville JE98XL is an affordable machine which is designed to squeeze maximum quantity of juice leaving behind less quantity of dry pulp.it has superior quality of juice yet it is not as good as a masticating juicer.

High speed motors are normally the weakness of fast juicers as they suck too much air which breaks down or oxidize the nutrients of juice and the centrifugal juice extraction tends to be frothy. However, this issue can be settled with little management. Either consuming it immediately or storing it in an airtight container away from light in the fridge can enhance its shelf life to 24 hours.

Although it is a very high-speed juicer, there is minimal heating of juice as it has fast blades which crush the product quickly by maintaining minimum contact time. The very low heat generation ensures that the enzymes and nutrients are not degraded as could happen with some poorly designed centrifugal juicers.

Braville JE98XL can be used on all types of hard and soft veggie fruits and citrus fruits. Hard products like carrots, jalapeno, peppers, garlic, water melon, pumpkin, cucumber, Yakon, turmeric, pear, ginger, sharp melon, broccoli, cauliflower. Apple, guava,  Citric fruits like tangerine, orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime, pomegranate.

The low speed used to make juice of soft fruits like strawberry, avocado, peach, mango, blackberries, and kiwifruit. Its efficiency may not be at its best against soft fruits like centrifugal juices but it can be enhanced by using it by mixing with hard fruits and veggies. That also helps it clean its mesh grill.

Bravellie JE98XL is not very efficient against the leafy vegetables like spinach, spring onion, kale, wheat grass, dandelion, romanion lettuce, beet green, moringa and pine trees.

Noise Level:

Braville JE98XL operates with high speed which makes it noisy then other masticating slow speed juicers but having said that majority of users report it particularly more noisy then other centrifugal juicers.

Warrenty:

BRAVILLE JE98XL provides a one-year product warrenty which is not very appealing however it is a reliable machine and customer care of braville is very good that’s why it is not an issue for the customers.
