What criteria should you consider before buying a juicer? First, a juicer should be efficient — it should yield the maximum amount of juice it could squeeze out of a fruit or a vegetable in a short time.

Secondly, the time it will take you to assemble, disassemble and clean the juicer, especially for the on-the-go individual;

And last, the ability of a juicer to juice whole fruits and vegetables.

This machine will give your day a healthy and delicious head start to set the stage for great things.

Features

Modern High-Quality Design

Breville’s Juice Fountain Plus has 12.6″x14.1″x16.4″ dimensions made with a sleek design of high-quality polymer parts.

This product comes with a juice jug with a froth separator, a large filter basket, and a cleaning brush.

The Juice Fountain Plus is a centrifugal juicer that works at high speed to extract juice from any of your choice of fruits and vegetables.

The Breville Plus has a pretty big container: a 35.2 fluid ounce juice jug with a froth separator and a 3.2-quart pulp container that allows you and your family to have a glassful of some fruity and veggie goodness all at the same time.

Storage has also been made easy by the Breville Plus, as each component piece is designed to disassemble quite easily from the core piece, and the Breville Plus is storage-friendly enough to fit in your countertop.

The power cord also can be wrapped on the base and has a snap underneath the juicer.

It makes it perfect for a modern-day user’s apartment living because of the product’s compact and space-saving design.

All plastic components of this juicer are made in a high-quality polymer that is BPA free guaranteeing the highest maximum juice quality anywhere and anytime.

A remarkable feature of this juicer is that as a security measure, it automatically turns off when overloaded so as to prevent overheating.

Also, the juice press will not operate if the lid is not secured correctly.

You can be assured of avoiding any accidents with these security measures.

 

Unique Extraction System

The Breville Juice Fountain Plus is for all juicers — from beginners to seasoned ones because of how easy it is to use.

Like many Breville juicers available right now, the Breville Plus has its signature extraction system with a reinforced Titanium disc and an Italian-made micro mesh basket, which is made to augment the juice extracted from the fruit and vegetables.

Ensuring a 20% increase in nutrients and minerals than any other juicers.

This is achieved because of Breville’s Nutri Disc and its patented juicing system.

This juicer extracts more minerals and nutrients by transferring less than 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit of heat to protect the enzymes and nutrients from the fruits and vegetables — less heat than any other available juice press in the market.

Breville’s Juice Fountain Plus will surely deliver from green juices to cold-fighting citrus drinks, even salsas and fresh sauces.

The Breville’s Plus has an extra wide 3.3-inch feed chute, wide enough to fit an apple and even a pear whole.

Saving you from the extra work of chopping and slicing your ingredients.

It also features the patented central feed system, whereas other juicers have them on the side; Breville made the Juice Fountain Plus and mounted the chute on the middle for maximum juice yield.

Two-Speed Electronic Control

The Breville Plus has a two-speed electric control: a low speed and a high speed.

If you are juicing fruits such as strawberries, peaches, papayas, mango, or kiwis, it is best to use the low-speed setting as it is best for soft fruits and vegetables.

When you plan to juice asparagus, beets, pears, apples, broccoli, or cauliflower, it is advised to use the high-speed setting as it is best for hard produce.

The low-speed option runs with 6,500 rotations per minute, whereas the high-speed one goes for 12,000 rotations per minute.

The Breville Plus’ micro-mesh filter does an excellent job separating the juice from the pulp, the skin, and the stem.

 

FAQ’s

Is the Breville Juice Fountain Plus a cold press juicer?

No. It is a masticating juicer because it uses low-speed squeezing technology.

The other type of juicers are called centrifugal extractors and they run at very high speeds, up to 15,000 RPMs.

In comparison, the Breville Juice Fountain Plus operates at just over 1000 RPMs.

It squeezes rather than grinds and chews up more of the cell walls and membrane releasing more enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients which results in a higher juice yield.

Does the Breville Juice Fountain Plus produce as much juice as a cold press juicer such as the Greenstar Elite GSE-5000?

Yes. In fact, it is better at extracting juice from soft fruits than the Greenstar thanks to its powerful 850-watt motor, extra-large 3-inch feeder chute and titanium reinforced cutting blades.

As for hard vegetables such as carrots, the Juice Fountain Plus processes them just as quickly as a cold press juicer because of its twin gears that rotate at a low 80 RPM – twice as slow as centrifugal juicers.

What is the difference between Breville Juice Fountain Plus and juice fountain cold?

Juice Fountain Plus and Juice Fountain Cold both have high-speed power, the ability to make sorbet and ice cream, a self-cleaning feature, and a pulp container that is removable.

The difference between the two is while one has a large 1.1-liter juice jug (a 50% increase in capacity from the original), the other contains a 0.7-liter jug (a 25% increase).

This means that you can make more at one time in the juice fountain than the cold model (with its smaller capacity jug), but with the cold model, you don’t have to stop your juicing process in order to empty and clean out the pulp container.
