The Breville BJE510XL Ikon Variable-Speed Juicer is a stainless steel juicer with five speed options ranging fro 6,500 RPM for soft fruits and leafy greens to 12,500 RPM for hard apples, beets and carrots.
This juicer is easy to use; you simply feed your food into the 3-inch circular tube, without any need for chopping, peeling, slicing or dicing. Because the tube is positioned directly over the cutting disc, results are consistently impressive. The “smart chip” technology means increased power is automatically delivered under heavier loads. At 16-4/5 inches by 15-1/2 inches by 10-1/4 inches, this juicer is bigger than some but still compact enough to leave out on a countertop. WWW.ReviewYOURJUICER.com claimed the BJE510XL to be a masterpiece in the juicing world.
Users of this Breville BJE510XL juicer find little to complain about. One reviewer (and long-term juice fan) describes it as a top quality piece of equipment that is fantastic at juice extraction. Highlights for this user include very dry pulp, quick and easy cleanup and low noise level. The pulp goes into a separate container, making it simple to remove (even more so if you line the container with a plastic bag, as many users do). When it comes to cleaning the Breville BJE5, the only common complaint relates to the filter device, which can be tricky to clean thoroughly. The cleaning brush provided seems to make this a lot easier, however. Users recommend cleaning the juicer straight after use to prevent a buildup of fruit and vegetable particles in the filter. What is an acceptable noise level for a juicer is different for everyone, but it seems that this machine falls in the low to medium noise category, i.e., around the same noise level as a regular blender. Noise does not appear to be a serious issue for any reviewers. In any case, with the average time to make an 8-ounce glass of juice coming in at 5 seconds, any noise will not last for long!
At $200 — $300 (depending on the retailer), this juicer is a fairly expensive model, but not as pricey as some others. If you are a fan of juicing and are going to be using it on a regular basis, it appears to be worth every cent. Most users find it to be a good investment and report no major problems. The choice of speed settings seems to be a major factor for people who are trying to choose between the Breville BJE5 and other similar juicers. It offers more flexibility and greater juicing options. There are a few users who do not like the fact that this juicer sometimes ejects juice into the pitcher somewhat violently, which can sometimes make a bit of a mess. To stop this from happening, it is important to make sure the pitcher is securely attached.
