Increase and decrease power as needed. The result is more juice in less time; it takes about five seconds to make eight ounces of juice.
Five-speed settings range from 6500 RPM to 12500. The low setting is used for soft fruit. The high setting is good for extracting juice from tougher fruits and vegetables like apples and beets.
The patented 3-inch feeding tube cuts down on prep time and is centered over the cutting disc for consistency and balance.

This juicer has received hundreds of reviews, and most of them are very positive. It is hard to pinpoint what people are most impressed with. This is just an outstanding juicer.
It sets up very easily and makes great juice. Not only does it extract juice quickly, but the large feeding tube makes it quicker to use. Users like the sleek and contemporary design.
It is also well built, solid, and durable. The removable plastic parts are dishwasher safe, making it easy to clean. Reviewers also report that the mesh filters are a breeze to clean, especially with the included cleaning brush.
There really are not that many negative reviews, but it is always wise to review them as well no matter how highly rated a product might be.
The common theme that runs through the most negative reviews is motor trouble. Many of the people who gave this juicer a low rating complained that the motor seized up or stopped working.
This was especially disconcerting to those who had been avid fans of Breville juicers in the past. Customer service for these units has been questionable, although there are reports of satisfactory replacements being delivered.
One reviewer put these complaints in perspective by explaining that this sturdy unit with a powerful motor can be easily overloaded.
This would naturally cause the motor to fail. Forcing too many large vegetables through the chute at once creates too much pulp, jamming the machine and burning out the motor.
This is a very highly recommended juice extractor. This is a high-speed unit, generating a good bit of juice very fast. The process results in the loss of some nutrient content and does not do a particularly good job with very soft fruits like blueberries. But, if you are looking for a quick high-volume juicer, then this might be the one for you.
