The Breville JE98XL Juice Extractor uses centrifugal juicing technologies to quickly pulverize fruits and vegetables at much greater speeds than other juicers. Compared to a masticating juicer, the centrifugal juicer performs at faster revolutions per minute (RPM) to deliver amazing cold-pressed juice in seconds!
A masticating juicer has a less powerful motor and only performs at a speed of 80 RPM. On the other hand, centrifugal juicers like the JE98XL perform at 12,000 RPM. The design of the juicer causes the difference in speed. Experts claim that the fast performing speeds of the centrifugal juicer may produce too much heat, thus destroying important nutrients in the fruit and vegetable juices. However, this can be easily avoided if the juicer is set to low speeds.
The slow-moving abilities of the masticating juicer are not practical in this fast-paced world. With a masticating juicer, you may be waiting several hours for the final product, but with the JE98XL, you get amazing juice in a matter of seconds! For anyone wanting freshly-pressed juice in the morning before heading out into the day, waiting for a masticating juicer to perform is not practical.
Breville has provided a large pulp container with a 2.5 liter or 2.64 quarts capacity while the feed chute measures 3.3 inches wide. This means that you can easily prepare 8 ounces of juice in as little as 5 seconds!
There are two different speed options: low and high. Low is best used for softer items while high is better for produce that is denser like apples.
The stainless steel cutting disc included in the JE98XL is much more effective compared to its predecessors and has shown to extract 30% more juice than its competitors. This provides you with 40% more vitamins and minerals from your cold-pressed fruits and vegetables. With its 850-watt dual-speed motor, you can easily get fast results. It even comes with a safety lock mechanism which stops the machine from turning on if the compartment is overloaded!
The body is made out of heavy grade polymer, which combines durability and sustainability and is much sturdier than everyday plastic. The 1-liter or 1.1-quart juice jug is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. A dishwasher safe froth separator is also included so that you no longer have to worry about frothiness in the juice.
Additionally, the unit comes with a micro-mesh filter basket and a cleaning brush. Both components are dishwasher safe, so you no longer have to worry about complicated cleaning solutions or brushes!
Overall, the JE98XL measure 13.5 inches wide by 16.5 inches deep by 18.5 inches high and comes with a limited one-year warranty. For juicers, the best way to measure the performance is to test how the juicer handles thicker produce like apples, carrots, and beets. Smaller juicers may have difficulty pulverizing the fruits or vegetables. However, the JE98XL zooms through tougher produce with little preparation time.
What do the owners say?
Overall, the reviews for the JE98XL are very positive. What seems to please a lot of people is that the JE98XL is very easy to use and very uncomplicated so that you can have a fresh drink very quickly. It is incredibly efficient and hassle-free.
People like the ease of just having two-speed options, leaving little room for error. You simply use the slow setting for soft fruits and the fast setting for harder, more fibrous fruits and vegetables. Once done, you can quickly disassemble the juicer and throw the dishwasher-safe pieces in the washer or simply rinse with hot water.
It is also astonishingly resilient. Many owners who have submitted updated reviews report that their units have been used daily and still perform well after two or three years of ownership. It is quite stable and secure and moves very little during operation.
