on October 6, 2015
I purchased this product after extensive research on the best juicer to buy for the money. Breville came highly recommended without having to take out a small mortgage like you do with the Omega brands.
At first, it worked fine although I had some initial concerns that the pulp was a bit wetter than I was expecting. I participated in a 30 day juice challenge which meant that I was juicing the hell out of the machine at least 4 times a day every day for 30 days. Towards the end of my challenge, I noticed that the pulp felt wetter and wetter AND many of the fruits/veg I was dropping in were going unjuiced! Very frustrating.
If that was annoying enough, 3 months into my ownership of this product and daily use, it started to leak around the seal edges regardless of how much or how little I throw into it. I've checked and rechecked and there are no cracks or legit reasons WHY it should be leaking so I'm at a complete loss with out to deal with this.
I specifically purchased this product not only for the value (although far from the cheapest brand on the market) but for the quality and it's supposed endurance to withstand daily juicing. At this point, I'm not convinced of either of those. Unfortunately I can't afford to purchase a $400-$500 juicer and I'm not entirely convinced those would be any better for the money. I guess I'll just have to learn to deal with what I've got until I can afford something else OR just pitch it and buy another one and hope for the best yet again :/
