When an item on Amazon.com receives 570 customer reviews (at the time of writing) and has four and a half stars, you pretty much know you are onto an item of outstanding quality. The Breville 700 Watt Compact Juicer is the item in question.
What is it about this very affordable Breville Juicer (less than $100) that’s got so many people dishing out stars like confetti?
Could it be the heavy duty build quality? The centred knife blade assembly? The 700 watt motor that produces 14,000 RPM (revolutions per minute) for “maximum extraction” (you don’t want to lose any of the juice, do you?) giving this juicer the power to produce an 8-ounce cup of juice in just five seconds, and if you like pineapples you don’t have to remove the rind as this Breville juicer is strong enough to extract the juice without doing so.
Maybe it’s the extra-large three inch centred feed tube or the stainless-steel micro-mesh filter?
If it’s none of these things perhaps it’s because it’s dishwasher safe, comes with a custom cleaning brush of its own and a one-year limited warranty?
Truth is, it’s probably all of these things that make this juicer so popular.
Another thing to add to the list of qualities is its size and weight – 9.5 x 8.8 x 16 inches / eleven pounds.
Whenever I buy anything that costs more than I earn in a few hours worth of work I always like to see what other people have to say about the product I’m interested in. Amazon is a great place to do research as the customer reviews are very honest and open and almost always tell it as it is. Of course, there are people that don’t like the Breville BJE200XL 700 Watt Compact Juicer, but the vast majority of people who have taken the time to leave a review have a lot of good things to say about it. Here are a few snippets for you:
This one works like a gem. Fast and clean! No big mess and no hard pushing. I owned another brand, years ago, and it was always a big mess to clean up. This one is easy. I bought it based on the high reviews of another customer who purchased theirs in 2007, and still loves it.

This juicer rocks!!
This is hands down the best juicer for around $100 that Ive found. It’s solid and does exactly what they say it does. I’ve had it for a little over a month and use it multiple times each day, and cannot find any flaws in its operation or cleaning. If you want a good juicer and dont want to spend much more than $100, get this one.
