For people in Australia, the word breville means a toasted sandwich. The reason for this is that the Breville corporation makes a range of sandwich toasting devices and the company is actually based in Australia. Now a days they make much more than just sandwich toasting devices. Other things that they produce include coffee makers and juicing appliances. Since we are becoming more and more concerned about our own health, it is their juicers that are becoming one of their best selling products. These days, the advertise seven different juicing machines on their homepage. In this article I want to analyse the Breville JE98XL. This is their second least expensive machine. But low cost, in the case of Breville, does not represent low quality but rather good value. Is this the best juicer in the Breville range? Let us find out.
The most expensive juicer in the Breville range is a dual juicer and blender, it costs about $500! So the $150 price tag for the JE98XL seems cheap in comparison. Indeed it is a very good value machine. What I like about this model is that it has most of the technology of the more expensive units. For example, the $300 800JEXL is a dual speed machine. So is the JE98XL. The 800JEXL has a separate pulp container and so does the JE98XL. So why is the Breville JE98XL so “cheap”. The main difference between this model and the more expensive 800JEXL is that this one has a plastic body. The higher price unit has a completely stainless steel body and to be honest looks really good. It can even be used as a commercial juicing appliance.
As a home juicer, the Breville JE98XL is a really good buy. It is very user friendly and the dual speed setting helps to extract the maximum amount of non-frothy juice from the fruit and vegetables that you use. Juicing is a simple way to have a big impact on our own health. You should try it.
