Great at whole pieces of fruit!
This is a very robust machine. Great quality juice and beautiful looking setup. The only problem I see is the cleaning involved with using a juicer. But you get that with any juicer. The soft fruit attachments have never been used. So I can’t say if they are useful or not. It’s not terribly noisy so won’t drive everyone out of the kitchen when you use it.
Purchased in December 2016.

I started a thyroid diet, which needed me to drink celery juice every morning. I also experimented with vegetable juice blends, and it doesn't transfer any heat to the juice. It also does fruit in a separate blade, so I feel like it's a complete setup. The froojie was excellent. Quick, sharp and effective. And best of all, sooo simple to clean.
I love the freshness of the juice that comes out, its filter absoltely does all the work for you prehaps better than the nutribullet when it comes to breaking down the bits of fruit and vegetables
It is very loud, which is quite annoying at times
IT IS EASY TO CLEAN BUT TAKES UP TO MUCH TIME
Failed after about 2 years
Unit broke down after little use for over two years. I would expect more live from the product as is was not the cheapest. When was working I’ve been very happy with the job that’s been doing. I also realize that Breville offer only one year replacement warranty on this product not sure why?.... I hope this is just a bad luck as I have a lot of appreciation for this Company.
I love this product!!!
We are really happy with this juicer, after doing lots of research we finally decided on this and it hasn't disappointed. It produces perfect juice each and every time, it is easy to clean compared to previous juicers that I have used. Highlight recommend this Froojie Fountain. Fresh and healthy juice is a great start to the day! Kids love it too.

Best kick start to the day
This has to be the best juicers i have ever bought. I only steered clear from it for so long cause people were telling me it was a great juicer but when it came to cleaning it, it was a headache. NO WAY!! It is the easiest juicer to clean after using it. Instructions are so easy to follow
Just what I was after!
I've had this juicer for about a month now and have used it every day without incident. I rinse it immediately after I've used it so it's easy to clean, and I give it a once-a-week proper wash in soapy water. I bought a 3 year extended warranty on the whole appliance for $50 so I feel assured this will last me a long time. Since starting juicing everyday I've got absolutely glowing skin - I can't recommend this highly enough as an addition to your healthcare routine. I haven't yet used the Froojie component, so I reserve judgement on that. My favourite recipe is:
a small piece of ginger
+ optional small handful of strawberries, if you like it a bit sweeter
Really Great Juicer
Bought this juicer after I returned a crap juicer and this is 1 week old and hasn't missed a beat. It chops through the hard vegies with no strain at all. We are very happy and it seems to have strong stainless steel top section not cheap plastic. This is a good model, we are happy perfect for those boost juices but at 1/4 of the cost.
What a difference the machine has made to our life styles. Had an old cold press juicer however my new Breville one leaves it way behind. Juices so many varieties of foods easily without leaving fibres or by products stuck to filters. Efficient and easy to clean. Settings for different textures of food. Waste product is almost dry showing how much juice is extracted. LOVE IT
Bought this juicer a week ago based on reviews on this site and elsewhere and (so far) it has been faultless. It juices everything I want it to and is very simple to use and easy to clean, especially if you line the pulp catcher. I have had other juicers in the past but this one is much better in terms of quantity and quality of juice produced, simplicity and ease of cleaning. I would highly recommend this juicer to anyone thinking of buying a juicer.
Sturdy, effective and easy to clean
This is the first juicer we've owned and has proven to be a good investment for getting rid of apples and other fruits which are past their prime in the fruit bowl. The components of this juicer are still in good condition after 6 months of use. Overall the build quality seems to be good and most of the parts are surviving regular washes in the dishwasher (except for the large plastic plunger and waste bin which we wash under the tap). The only minor fault with the unit is that some of the elements on the display screen no longer light up. A...lso, unsure if a design flaw or just the reality of juicing, however occasionally when juicing a large batch of fruit it is hard to judge the fill level of the output jug and the unit will start blowing sticky froth out of the top of the jug. Careful attention to the level can help avoid this. Care also needs to be taken whilst feeding oranges into the unit as they seem to occasionally "bounce" and throw up small amounts of juice. Despite these small setbacks (which possibly stem from the simple, elegant design of the machine), the resulting juice is tasty and the waste is usually very dry, which is testament to the Frooji's effectiveness.
Excellent centrifugal juicer
1) Good quality material used in this product, and well constructed. Taking it apart and putting it back together was easy, which makes washing easy.
2) Make no mistakes. This is a very powerful machine, and yet quiet when operating a full speed. It leaves the pulps pretty dry. I previously owned a Tefal infinity cold press juicer. This juice easily puts the Tefal juice to shame.
Fabulous Juicer! Cannot fault it!
Purchased this Breville Juicer after a Philips Quickclean one basically blew up after only a few uses. Love the variable speeds for soft and hard fruits/vegetables. I find it easy to clean and do it immediately after use. The pieces all rinse off and clean easily, with just a quick and gentle scrub needed for the mesh component using the brush provided. No need to wash the pulp container either if you pre-line it, I use the large freezer bags as they fit the pulp bin perfectly. I also like that you can juice straight into a glass or another con...tainer (other than into the jug provided), you just attach the little rubber nozzle for this. The juice produced has no pulp in it, and that's the way I like it. I have yet to use the puree disc, so cannot comment on this function of the machine. I purchased it from Harvey Norman for $249.00.
I originally saw this at the Qantas Club lounge and couldn't believe how well it worked for all types of fruit and vegetables. The next day after returning home I ended up buying two - one for me and one for a birthday gift. Initially I used mine almost every day - however the novelty wore off due to the relatively lengthy cleaning time. I like the idea someone had about putting a plastic bag i n the container - I never thought of that and it will save some cleaning/rinsing time for the pulp catchment.
The juice always comes out the same consi...
Love the machine, disappointed with the customer service department though
Purchased the juicer 14 months ago. I noticed a fault in the mesh part of the filter 3-4 months ago and I realise I should have addressed the issue at that point however I failed to do so until last week. I contacted the customer service centre to discuss the problem and they were completely disinterested and told me the juicer was out of warranty! After thinking about it for a short time I called the customer service centre a second time and purely because I told them I was dissatisfied with their initial reaction they told me to take the fil...ter to one of their service centres and the bloke would have a look at it and replace the item if he felt that appropriate. Although he agreed with me in relation to the faulty filter he said because it was out of warranty all he could do was take some photos, forward them to Breville and hopefully someone would be in touch with me. Still waiting, very disappointed. A rather expensive machine and now I could be up for a further $100 or so to replace the file and it's only 14 months old. I don't think that is fair nor reasonable!
I have only had my Breville Froojie Juice Fountain for a few weeks but I think it is wonderful. Everything is juiced completely and the pulp is dry. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a juicer. It also makes yummy smoothies. Very easy to use and not too bad to clean.
Reliable and very handy.
Only thing wrong is that it is made in China.
Don't ever buy from Breville Factory Shop
Over a year ago I bought this juicer from factory shop, It never seemed to be right, but as it was a 2 hour round trip to the shop i let it go until it got worse, I took it back and after been put down in the shop I took it for repair, after a month they had to give me a new one, this lasted about 6 or 7 months, then it exploded, It was 1 month out of warranty, The Breville help line is disgusting and arrogant, they would not replace it, Then i called again and said the motor warranty is 5 years, so they said take it for repair, the repair shop said they do not have replacement motors, so my $200 machine went in the bin, Never again Breville
Bad warranty service
Wonderful alternative to using TWO appliances
This is exactly what the market needed! I prefer my juice to have a bit more ooomph than just a plain juice so until the Froojie landed on my doorstep, I'd use my juicer and then use my blender to add a whole banana or berries. More than once, I didn't follow through my urge to make juice because I couldn't bear the thought of having to clean two applicances. Which makes the Froojie the perfect alternative.
The puree attachment isn't as good as a blender, of course, and the juice ends up just a little chunky but it's still small enough to dr...ink through a straw (or a bottle, as my children do) and considering the time and mess it saves me, it is well worth it. Thoroughly recommended. Large chute, puree option, easy to clean, handy jug Puree involves a little wastage of otherwise usable fruit
Ikon Froojie 5 speed juicer
Just bought one of these juicers from Good Guys who beat Bing Lee's sale price of $299 by $1, so I got it for $118!!!
I have found it is best to stack the feeding tube with produce THEN switch on (after speed selection of course(). There is around about one second wind up to speed which is great, gives time to get fingers off the off/on button and concentrate on the juicing. I also found it best to not force the pusher if all veges etc in the tube don't juice straight away and the motor seems to labour just back off until that bit has been jui...
