Breville BJE430SIL Review 2018
The Breville BJE430SIL The Juice Fountain Cold is a rather remarkable product. It really stands out among its competitors simply because it has everything you could ever want in a centrifugal juicing product. If you are looking for a high-powered, fairly inexpensive juicer, then this is the product for you. Here is what makes this product one of the best on the market.
First and foremost, it’s important to begin by explaining what Breville set out to accomplish with this product. They wanted to make a juicer that would significantly expand the life of the juice and they certainly accomplished that goal with this product.
Typical centrifugal juicers create juice that is only good for about a day or so, even when refrigerated. This made it rather difficult for juice enthusiasts to create bulk amounts of juice because it would simply go bad before you could use it all.
The reason the juice doesn’t remain good for long is that the heat of the blades that suck the juice out of fruit and vegetables causes the oxidation level in the juice to be quite high. This will cause the juices’ molecules to break down at a higher rate thus decreasing the amount of time it will remain good enough to drink. The heat from the blade can also reduce the number of enzymes, minerals, and vitamins in the juice.
The Breville BJE430SIL Difference
Breville’s solution to this issue manifests itself in the BJE430SIL. By incorporating Breville’s patented Cold Spin Technology and Elevated Juicing System technology, The Juice Fountain Cold is able to create juice that will remain good for about 72 hours. This nearly doubles the life of the juice when in comparison with other centrifugal juicers. It accomplishes this by reducing the amount of heat transferred during the juicing process.
Studies have shown that only 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit is transferred from the blades to the juice during the juicing process. This is what allows the juice to remain good for an extended period of time. By incorporating their new patented technology with a fantastic Italian-made precision mesh filter, the life of your juice is significantly extended. The product also comes with a seal-able 70 oz. pitcher that can be easily stored in your refrigerator.
The Juice Fountain Cold not only creates a longer lasting juice product but does so quickly and easily. The powerful 850-watt motor in this Breville juicer will have you juicing any fruit or vegetables with relative ease. The motor can be set to either high or low speeds, which are a great option to have, as some items require a bit of a slower speed to maximize the amount of juice extracted.
The same goes for the high-speed option, which is great for harder items such as carrots and pineapples. Though some find the noise of this powerful motor to be a bit louder than some other juicers, it certainly isn’t loud enough to cause any discomfort and therefore won’t be much of a problem.
Power and Performance
You will notice the sheer power of this product almost immediately as it will easily chop up fruit and vegetables. The actual process of juicing is also rather gentle and you won’t need to strain much at all either holding the product in place while it is juicing or while using the three-inch feeding tube.
The sizable feeding tube also makes this product a significant time saver as you can easily put whole fruit and vegetables down the chute without having to chop them up. Speaking of size, the Juice Fountain is rather large, but not too big to prevent you from easily storing it in your kitchen cupboard. The large size of the product is mainly due to the large 70 oz. pitcher and 3.4 L pulp container.
Because this product’s focus was on creating a large amount of juice that can be kept for up to three days, it needed to ensure that the liquid and pulp containers were big enough to hold larger amounts.
Cleaning the Juicer
Cleaning this product is made easy, as most parts are dishwasher safe and will easily fit into any sized dishwasher. It also comes with a scrubbing brush, which is perfect for cleaning out the tiny bit of pulp from the mesh filter.
As with any product, there are a couple complaints that have been associated with the Breville BJE430SIL. One complaint that is often brought up is the ability of this product to juice leafy green vegetables and nuts. Though this doesn’t mean that you can’t juice items such as cabbage, kale, lettuce, or almonds, you may not get the amount of juice you would expect.
The best way to maximize the amount of juice you get from nuts and leafy vegetables is to process them together with harder fruits and vegetables or roll them into bundles before putting them in the feeding tube.
Breville BJE430SIL Pros & Cons
All in all, the Breville BJE430SIL is a noteworthy product. By significantly extending the shelf life of its juice, this Breville product stands above the rest. Combine that with its powerful motor and rather inexpensive price tag and you have a great investment that you are sure to enjoy.
Breville accomplished what it set out to do with this product and customers around the world are extremely satisfied with the quality of this product.
