Ease of Use

This Breville juicer combination unit is so fun and easy to use it will have you enjoying 100{9a380f4e84d98486cb4e3fb0b774145dd920d53eef77a0fda2ce39067aee7610} pure fresh juice, smoothies, soups and dips quickly and effortlessly. The combined power and functionality of this powerful, single-motorized-based blender and juicer in-one makes for one remarkable machine with unparalleled performance.

Clean-up

This Breville juicer combination unit is really easy to clean; Breville was kind enough to include a nylon brush to aid with washing, but it takes only a few minutes to rinse off all the parts. The only part that really needs attention to clean is the screen blade bowl, but as with any juicer, be sure to clean the machine immediately to avoid a hardened mess later. To simplify the process try lining the catch bin with a plastic bag to help cut down on the cleaning time, rinse the other pieces off and put them into some hot soapy water, if needed, and let them soak clean while you enjoy your drink. Also, when juicing a lot of juice at one time, remember to empty the pulp container to avoid having pulp make its way back into the juicer.

Quality/Specs combination

The Breville Juicer BJB840XL is an interchangeable juice and blender in one made of die-cast metal construction and is one of the upper mid-ranged priced models out there. It probably costs more than a lot of people can justify spending, but then quality isn’t known to be easy on the wallet. The blender is as powerful as the juicer and it’s not near as loud as some videos out there portray it. In fact, there is no need for raising one’s voice when it is running, and the RPM of the motor won’t let you down. If you can afford a gem like this one, this machine is one to consider. In addition to being one of the best juicers/blenders available, this machine combo is something anyone would be proud to have on their countertop.

Summary Review

The Breville Juicer BJB840XL is one of the best and safest juicers on the market that provides all the power, performance, and speed you’ll need. Just think of all the money and time you will save making your own drinks at home. And this is without doubt a fast, easy and convenient appliance that you are sure to use and enjoy for years to come.

A side note: There are some remarks floating around about this machine not juicing leafy greens too well, so I must point out the fact this machine was not designed for effective handling of greens. For juicing greens efficiently, I would recommend a masticating juicer instead. But, I also offer a suggestion to assist this machines performance and improve its proficiency with large leafy greens and that is to simply roll them tightly like a cigar before introducing to the juicer.
