The smart control system

Variable speed control system allows you to juice produce in the BEST possible way

This is a versatile juicer that is able to squeeze the juice out of any fruit or vegetable ranging from soft and mushy to hard and super dense. Yes, with other juicers you can still juice soft and hard produce, but you wont be getting the maximum possible juice and nutrients. This speed system makes it easier to choose the right setting, meaning you get more bang for your buck with your end product.

The accompanying juicing speed smart chip takes the guesswork out of your juicing by automatically adjusting the speed according to the load. The result is efficient juicing of a wide range of textures and consistencies with very little waste.

The generous feed chute greatly minimizes prep work

Because the 3-inch feed chute is wide enough to gobble up huge chunks of produce, you can save time and effort since you don’t have to do much slicing and chopping.

The unique Direct Central Feed System enhances juicing efficiency

Unlike other models which let you feed produce to the side of the cutting disc, this juicer has a feed chute that is positioned directly over the Nutri-Disc to fine-tune efficiency. This also offers the added advantage of stabilizing the juicer and reducing both noise and vibration issues.

Built to last

All the way from the 900-watt motor to its titanium-reinforced stainless steel cutting blades and premium-grade polymer body construction, this juicer is cut out for many hours of heavy use.

The juicer comes with several safety mechanisms

To ensure your safety, all surfaces that come in contact with your food – the feed chute, juice jug, pulp container and Nutri Disc – are all BPA-free. Read here for more information about the dangers of BPA products in your home. To prevent overheating, the juicer is equipped with a sensor that discerns overload and automatically shuts the machine down. There is also a Safety Locking Arm to prevent operation whenever you forget to lock the cover in place.

Super easy to clean and maintain

Most of the parts can be washed safely, and very easily on the top shelf of the dishwasher. The stainless steel body maintains its sleek finish for a neat yet sexy look on your counter-top. Even the cord is designed to hide beneath the base, minimizing clutter and footprint on kitchen surfaces.

The bad

This is a centrifugal juicer and the high speed involved means a juice output that is a little frothy and therefore does not keep well for days (if this concerns you, go for a masticating juicer) Centrifugal juicers are not as efficient as masticating juicers in extracting the juice of leafy greens such as wheat-grass and kale, which we cant do without. Yes, it can juice most types of produce very easily, from soft to hard, but leafy greens wont fair well.

Best suited for

The juicing enthusiast who wants a juicer that is solid, fast, versatile, smart and easy to use will find all these features in the Breville Fountain Multi-speed juicer. If ease of use and getting the most out of your fruits and veggies is important to you, this machine has got you covered. Armed with a smart chip that senses load, the juicer auto-selects the right speed so you don’t have to do any guesswork. Maximum output for minimal work.

Not so great for

This juicer is not so great for the hard-core juicing fanatic who cant live without juicing wheat-grass and other leafy greens on a daily basis. If you are very particular about your nutrients, and we mean VERY particular, you should be looking at a great quality masticating juicer.

The verdict

When it comes to ease of use and juicing efficiency, its hard to look past the Breville juice fountain multi-speed juicer. The easy to use system, combined with the integrated smart chip, almost makes it impossible for you to produce a great, high quality juice – and isn’t that such a great thing to wake up to each day? To cap it all off, it has a super-durable yet beautiful construction, which will last for many years of  happy juicing memories.

If your looking for a centrifugal juicer which is top of the line but at the same time makes life (very) easy, this one is a no-brainer.
