Fabulous! Buy it, it's worth every penny!
on August 20, 2012
I just received my Juice Fountain today, and I'm certainly pleased with my purchase. My first juice was effortless and fun!
Before deciding on this product I read many reviews, blogs, and watched YouTube videos on various products. I then went to the store to compare various brands, including several Breville brands for ease of assembly, cleaning, etc. All in all, this product is great! And it's highly recommended in many health/juicing articles as well!
The previous reviews were not joking in claiming this machine is much quieter. No, it's not silent, but in comparison to many other machines, including the Juiceman, it's quiet. Not to mention, my other half was sound asleep and only 10' away without a stir. So yes, it's rather quiet.
Many pulp ejection/centrifugal juicers have troubles with leafy greens, and fresh herbs; even so that I had read in some blogs that this machine also struggled, but that is NOT the case. My first juice with this machine included one cup of fresh beet greens and one cup of fresh basil, and this machine chewed it up without issue, actually processing it, not just spitting it out fully intact like the other machines.
The clean up is nice and easy, about 10 min. The reality is that the clean-up is rather comparable to most pulp ejection juicers, BUT, this machine doesn't have any of those nuisance joints, cracks, or indents where the food is trapped like in other machines. And I very much like that the food chute is stainless steel to meet the blade bowl. The design of this product is very well thought out.
I am ecstatic to have the Juice Fountain Multi Speed as a part of my continued path to better health! Thank you Breville for a fabulous machine! It's worth every penny!
