The health and wellness craze is on the rise, catching people from all walks of life, young and old alike. However, all the physicality in the gym and outdoor exercises will be for naught if the food intake is not healthy. Carbonated drinks with sweeteners are taboo for health buffs; healthy drinks are in.
The winds of change have blown in favor of juicing. The benefits are enormous. Concoct vegetables and fruits to come up with a detoxifying drink that will remove harmful chemicals from your body.
There are claims fresh pressed juices can help you lose extra pounds, boost immunity, and prevent maladies. Heck, true or not there’s no harm in trying – Right?
The only problem is what juicer to buy. People want their juice in a jiffy making centrifugal juicers popular among fresh pressed juice aficionados.
The Breville brand is known for sturdiness, convenience, and speed in the centrifugal juicer market; the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-watt is no exception.
It has a dual speed and runs on 850 watts. The lower setting of 6,500 RPM handles softer fruit and veggies and adjust the speed to 12,000 RPM for hard ingredients. A pineapple with the outer layer on is no match to the powerful stainless steel cutting disc, and the extracting of the juice is easy.
Breville BJE 430SIL
The 430SIL is powered by a proficient 850 watts motor and operates on two speeds, 6500 RPM and 13,000 RPM, for soft and hard veggies and fruits. At low speed, toss in leafy green vegetables such as cantaloupe and spinach but don’t expect good results. Due to the lower water content of leafy vegetables the juicer doesn’t have the chance to remove the juice before the discharge to the pulp container.
Conclusion: Both the Breville centrifugal juicers run on 850 watts with the same performance in juicing.
Cold Spin Technology
The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain does not apply the cold spin technology.
Breville BJE 430SIL
Cold Spin Technology allows it to filter juice through a mesh filter to ensure an insignificant temperature increase.
The Breville BJE 430SIL transfers less than 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit when separating the juice. A cold spin is applied to the juice before it is dispensed through the nozzle. It protects vitamins and minerals in veggies and fruits from heat.
The cold spin technology lengthens the shelf life and the destruction of nutrients. The juice can be stored up to 72 hours maintaining its freshness and taste.
Fill the 34 oz. (1L) juice jug with the froth separator in a jiffy. The juice will be good for up to 24 hours.
The elevated juicing system allows storing more juice with a 70 oz. (2L) juice jug. Detach the lid once juicing is done to catch the liquid, place it back and store for 72 hours. The more juice you stock the better, meaning less time in prepping and cleaning.
Conclusion: The juice jug of the Breville BJE430SIL is double the size of the Breville JE98XL Fountain, it can hold more juice, and the lid will keep it fresh for up to 72 hours.
The Breville JE98XL Fountain’s pulp container can hold 2.6 qt. (2.5L) of leftovers from the extraction. Place a disposable plastic bag in the pulp container to catch the solid waste. Once you’re done juicing, pick it up and off to the bin, you don’t have to clean up.
Hot water and some cleaning detergent are all you need to remove the residues of juicing in both Breville machines. This has to be done immediately to save you trouble form detaching dried pulp. All goes to the dishwasher except for the filter baskets which has to be washed manually.
Include the Breville BJE430SIL’s jug and an airtight lid that is not dishwasher safe.
Conclusion: All parts of the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain and BJE430SIL are easy to clean.
All centrifugal juicers are noisy. The motor is large which makes juicing fast and the food is chopped in chunks so expect a loud noise from these juicers. The upside, both machines are quick at getting juice from veggies and fruits so noise will not last long.
There were innovations in the Breville BJE430SIL for less noise, but the decibels are still high compared to a masticating juicer.
Conclusion: Expect noise from the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain and BJE430SIL centrifugal juicers coz of the powerful motor and large chunks of food. But it’s just for a sec.
The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain and BJE430SIL centrifugal juicers are both effective and durable made by a reputable company. They are quick to piece together, simple to operate, and cleaning is easy. A great partner for a health buff.
However, the Cold Spin Technology applied to the Breville BJE430SIL is a huge improvement. Fewer nutrients are lost when extracting juice from vegetables and fruits. The juice jug has a seal and store feature which is a great way to store juice up to 72 hours. And the 70 oz. (2L) capacity allows to stock more juice good enough for guests.
It comes with a removable nozzle attachment to juice direct to a glass.
