Review – Breville Juice Fountain

I’ve been researching a lot about the benefits of juicing lately, and have wanted to get a juicer for some time already. Yesterday, I decided to make use of the $100 department store gift voucher I claimed (using frequent flyer points) and also make use of the start to the retail sales season. Enter – My brand-new Breville Juice Fountain! I’ve juiced twice since last night and OH MY it tastes great! My partner is not a “healthy” fan and would rather have chosen a smoothie blender over a juicer, but I managed to convert him when he tried his first glass of Green Grannie Apple, Pear and Carrot Juice. Instant win! The Breville Juice Fountain retails for $169.95, but was reduced to $144.45 and minus my gift voucher, I spent $44.45. I didn’t opt for the more expensive models (they can go up to $600!!!) because I’m an ametuer, and don’t want to spend lots of money. The more expensive models can be quieter, produce more juice from fruit, easier to clean, etc. So far mine is not as noisy as I expected (I read somewhere they’re on par with the noise of a subway. Not true.), reasonable easy to clean, and as far as the juice goes, excellent! It does produce a fair amount of pulp each time, which is not enough to stop the whole juicer from juicing, but I am wondering what the best use for it is. I emptied out last night’s pulp in my cherry tomato plant, but I don’t know what to do with the rest from this morning. If I kept dumping it every day in the same place, my sparsely decorated pot plant (it has 1 cherry tomato) will be more compost than plant. Anyway, my novice rating is a 4 out of 5 – Easy to use and assemble, not uber expensive for a juicer, 5 minutes to clean and not too noisy.

    1. Hahaha! It’s a decent blender. I’ve been drinking fresh juice every day. So much better than store bought, and no preservatives or sugar. Just fresh fruit! I decided that all the extra vitamins would make for brighter eyes, skin, hair nails, everything! And of course it will be good for healthy diet! Do try using it 🙂
