If you happen to love fresh squeezed juice like I do, having a great high end juicer is an essential part of your kitchen. Not only will your juice taste amazing, there is no additives like sugar or preservatives that you get when buying store bought juice. When it comes to luxury juicers, there is no comparison to the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite.
This juicer is not only the best performing of the machines we tested, we also feel it was the best looking for adding some extra counter top style to your luxury kitchen. The stainless steel finish and commercial appliance look was one of our favorite features.
If for some reason the Breville is not your favored brand or if the 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite is not available, a second close runner up to the best high end juicer is the Cuisinart CJE-1000.
For our test we tried out the top 3 rated Breville juicers found on Amazon as well as 2 others: The Cuisinart CJE-1000 and the Kuvings NJ-9500U. Our juicers were priced at $150 and up and had to have at least 2 prosumer features to be considered a high end juicer.
There are several types of juicers, even the vintage style hand powered crank style. We only wanted to review electric juicers, and these are the following types:
- Hydraulic Press Juicers
- Triturating (Twin-Gear) Juicers
- Masticating Juciers
- Centrifugal Juicers
We wanted the juicer to perform well in the action of getting juice easily from fruit, as well as yielding the highest possible amount of fresh fruit juice from our grocery store fruit. We used common Florida navel oranges for our test bought from a chain grocery store.
The Breville Juicer is a powerful and efficient unit with a compact motor base. It features stainless-steel extractor basket with micromesh screen to separate and strain pulp, a clear dome cover, and a food pusher. It has high horsepower motor; two-speed capability to adjust for soft and hard produce. We found this juicer was the easiest to use, fit the largest sizes of fruit, and produced the biggest yield of juice for the amount of fruit used. This juicer is great to start changing your diet and increase your daily amount of fresh fruit and vegetables!
