December 17, 2011Great tasting juice: Great Juicer
"There are many expensive versions of it and you can decide but this juicer is more than adequate and it costs, $149.00. I normally take a look at the reviews for an item that I buy. I can show you ways to avoid all of the things I have read at Amazon.
Using low speed all the time and slowly, slowly, just letting the food presser sink down with the food, allows for much more juice. They suggest using a plastic bag for faster clean up. Funny! It takes one second to rinse the tub. If you don't use the tub and you have a bowl near you, you can take the contents, and put it back in the mouth of the juicer and once again just allow the presser to sink down with the food. (I would also recommend taking the pulp off of the roof of the juicer to include in the second juicing. You will know what I mean if you decide to juice.) Perhaps there will be a few more crumbs on the counter, but guess what, we have to wipe the counter anyway. I never use soap. To make cleaning faster, I just fill up the sink or leave the sink full (I rinse the organic celery and kale in a full sink of cold water), add some hot water and rinse the parts of the machine. The basket is very easy to clean if you let it sit for a minute.
I would go for taste and a little more work as opposed to the heaviness of grinding the very delicate fruits and veggies
September 5, 2011love it!
"I really love my Breville!! I started juicing a few months ago, but wasn't sure if I'd stick with it. I had friends who purchased expensive juicers, but I decided to start low (compared to theirs) and then trade up, if I had to. Well, I don't think I ever will trade up. My machine juices wonderfully, is super easy to clean, and I love the taste of the juice. Looks good on my counter, too. I was excited to watch "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" tonight and see that Joe uses MY juicer :) I recommend them to anyone who asks about my juicing. Oh, since I've begun juicing I've lost 20 lbs, my psoriasis is getting better, my knee joints no longer ache, my cuticles stopped splitting, and people are commenting on how great my skin looks.
We are so excited to hear that juicing is working so well for you! We're also so happy to hear that your health is improving so much! We know that your results aren't typical but they are so hopful and wonderful to hear!
Please let us know how the juicing continues to work for you!

"Yeah, I thought I saved a few bucks. I bought a Juiceman on sale.
It lasted 1 week.
It vibrated terribly, was difficult to clean, and the cutting basket was hard to remove.
It choked and died on some carrot/apple juice.
Lots of people in the USA are crazy over Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead (rightfully so, for those of us who are out-of-shape). So, this juicer is sold out almost everywhere. I found one at Macy's, spent the money on it, and here are my thoughts:
The Juice Fountain Plus is a TOTALLY different machine than other makers' models I looked at.
The packaging is attractive, the instruction booklet it easy to read, and the machine looks good on the counter.
The interior surfaces are molded so they don't have the sharp edges, nooks or crannies, I see on cheap(er) juicers. It really is a breeze to clean, and the juice jug that comes with it is genius.
It's loud on High, but it's more like a jet turbine than a possessed blender. The Juiceman scared my kids.
It's powerful, and it had no trouble spitting out a ton of juice. There was far less material around the basket than there was in the Juiceman. Juice flowed from the spigot, and plant-stuff shot out the rear- just like it's supposed to.
I'm quite pleased with this purchase, and I'm Reboot bound w/ the blessing of my doctor.
Thank you so much for that amazing review. It's really great to hear that people are enjoying the juicers just like we hoped they would!
Also good luck to you with your juicing plan!
July 24, 2011it really does work
"First time juicer and I bought it after seeing the film. I joined the reboot and am gradually increasing my produce intake. The tips below on the spinach were helpful (ball it up). I used shredded red cabbage and it did the same thing, sort of whipping into the pulp collector. I guess it was a tad disappointing seeing all of that roughage go into the trash bin but the juice was phenomenal. The bright purple juice of the cabbage tells me I'm getting some good stuff. Don't put bananas in it, do put a bag in the pulp cup for ez clean-up. Use low speed for softer stuff, high for apples-carrots, hard things. "
July 23, 2011Love this juicer!
"we recently purchased this juicer after seeing a documentary on juicing. So far it is fabulous! Easy to use, easy to clean, and makes great juice! I realize now that we cannot juice softer fruits like banana and berries. Is there a part sold separately that could accommodate the softer fruits?
We're so happy to hear that you are enjoying your juicer!
Unfortunately this particular model does not come with a seperate soft fruit attachment, however most of the softer fruits, including blueberries, are suggested to be used on low speed. We do, however appreciate you giving us that idea for an attachment specifically for softer fruit! I'll definately pass that on to our product managers!
Thank you again Caroline!
July 20, 2011Inspired by the film "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" by Joe Cross
"After seeing this inspiring film on Netflix Streaming Video, I immediately went to Amazon.com and read many of the 100's of excellent reviews the JE98XL received. Amazon.com was out of stock so I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to purchase mine. This juicer is an Engineer's dream. Easy to put together, easy to use, and easy to clean up! I plan to juice fast for 60 days and get my "real" self back! Good luck to all those Juice Fasting Folks out there! "
July 17, 2011Excelent Quality. Lost 13 Lbs in 5 days,
"I am "Juice fasting". I am 41, healthy but over weight. I am 5'11" and Weighed 244 lbs when I started. On my 5th day now and I have lost almost 14 lbs.
I Juice fruit and carrots as a base in the morning and afternoon and in the evening I juice Mostly leafy greens.
I had been drinking an extreme amount of coffee. I had not eaten breakfast in years so my body has been in survival mode and I could not take the weight off.
I am going to see my doctor tomorrow and hopefully he will give me the go ahead for a 60 day fast,

March 18, 2011New to juicing
"We will never buy cartoned juice again! This is our first juicer and we are really enjoying the wonderful taste of fresh juice.
My only concerns are: After first initial use, pulp tends to be on the wet side. Also, the majority of spinich and kale ended up in the pulp basket with very little juice extracted. What am I doing wrong? Otherwise, we absolutely love our new purchase!
Thank you for the review. We're happy to hear that you're enjoying the machine! If you're juicing kale, spinach and other leafy greens it's best to take a big handful of leaves and ball it up tightly then juice it. If you do a few leaves at a time the force of the juicer will just kind of whip the leaf into the pulp container. As for wet pulp, you want to be sure that after each use you soak the filter basket in warm water and then wash with the provided brush to make sure all tiny fibers from fruit/veggies are cleaned from the basket. "
February 7, 2011Love it!
"So far we love this juicer. Effortless to create and clean up. Hoping to try new recipes!
January 31, 2011I love this thing!
"This is my first juicer and I have no complaints. It makes quick work of anything I throw at it, from jicama to sweet potato to soft things such as kiwi or mango. It's a breeze to clean (thanks to the little brush that's included with it). It makes and stores enough juice for four or more...
If you're thinking about adding fresh juice to your diet, this is a wonderful way to get started! It's a fabulous investment in your future and your health."
