The Breville BJS600XL juicer is an upright, rather than horizontal, masticating juicer so it takes up less counter space. Its 240 watt motor runs rather quietly, especially when compared to a centrifugal juicer that has a similar capacity.
I enjoy using my Breville BJS600XL juicer several times a day. It makes great juice without a lot of froth. When I shopped for a juicer, I wanted one that only made juice, not one that had attachments to do various other things. Every time I get a multi-purpose kitchen appliance, I find it too bothersome to switch out parts to do something else. Aside from the fact that this is just a juicer, the aspects that I found the most favorable for buying this one are:
- Safe start system
- Reverse button
- Easily juices soft foods and leafy greens
Why Breville BJS600XL Juicer?
I like to involve my kids in preparing foods at a young age, including learning the proper way to use knives when cutting up whole foods. When I decided to get a juicer, I was worried that they would not be able to help me with it. But the Breville BJS600XL juicer eradicates that worry because it will not run unless it is completely assembled properly and all of the pieces are locked in place.
So, not only does this juicer give our family nutritious juice to drink, it also helps our children learn that following instructions is important, especially for assembling things, which I think is an ideal thing to learn at a young age. Of course, this juicer doesn’t have a ton of parts that need to be put together, so the assembling process isn’t extremely complicated. Nevertheless, I think it is good that the kids can help as much as possible so that they are more prepared when they finally move out on their own.
Another thing that is great about this particular Breville BJS600XL juicer is the fact that has a reverse button. If the foods get stuck in the juicer and the auger can’t move properly, all we need to do is press the reverse button and it will spin in the opposite direction which usually dislodges the stuck chunk of food.
With some other models of juicers, a stuck chunk of food can only be dislodged by turning the juicer off and taking the top off so that the offensive food chunk can be dislodged by hand. That is time-consuming and it can also be messy if the chunk is under the rest of the food.
Breville BJS600XL juicer doesn’t massacre soft fruits, soft vegetables, and leafy greens when they are used as ingredients in the juice I am making. The auger gently processes them, extracting the most juice possible. In addition, it doesn’t get hot like the centrifugal juicer my sister owns. That means that the enzymes in all of the juices that I make are not destroyed by the warmth.
If you want a great juicer that doesn’t take up much counter space, you should buy the Breville BJS600XL juicer. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and the juice will keep your family healthier.
