Good price for a functional juicer, but not the best if you're after the quality.
What other people said in their reviews are true. A day after receiving this juicer, I tried to make a glass of green juice (kale, spinach, apple). It was good, but I also found some chucks left in the wastage in the juice collector. The wastage was also wet, which I guess still have quite some juice liquid left with them.
For the second time, I made pure orange juice and can see juice leaks from the juice collector.
Pro: If you're after a budget juicer that does the job, this is not bad.
Con: some juice goes to waste; leakage; might not last for long
Purchased in April 2020.
I didn't realise this was so good until I read reviews for others
To be honest, I have just started looking to buy a new juicer because I have had this one for approx 6 years and there is so much hype about cold-pressed juicers so I was about to jump on the very expensive bandwagon.
Now, after reading about how annoying to clean and time-consuming (some) cold press juicers can be and how many juicers don't last very long and some don't handle celery (which is a necessity for me), I am actually pretty awed by this one! The one that I have taken for granted as just an inexpensive bit of kit. I am actually ver...y very impressed with it. It did have a year off, but has been juicing up to three times every single day for the last 4 months and doesn't look like it will stop any time soon. Before that year it had off it was used 3-14 times weekly for about 4 years. So after doing hours of reading and watching reviews for other machines I think I am just going to stick with the one I have. Having said all of that, I will list the cons (which I don't see as that bad tbh) Cons -noisy (really noisy) -occasionally leaves chunks which can be wasteful but that doesn't happen very much -not good with soft fruit or salad leaves (IMO), and ok, this is actually a bit annoying and I might actually buy a relatively cheap slow press one for the random occasion that I want, I don't know, blueberry juice or something. Buuut, I usually just make smoothies with soft fruit and salad leaves so maybe I'll just save my money.
Breville Juice Fountain Compact BJE200
I juiced oranges, apples, pears, leafy greens and carrots getting a full container of pulp and only one small jug of juice that came with the machine. Pulp was wet and dripping, wherefore it should have been heaps drier, giving more juice. It went to the bin. I would NEVER buy a Breville juicer ever again.
Juiced great and used about 50 times before burning smell from motor and started to run slow. Warranty was only 12 months so I had to through away . Would have expected it to last longer.
My wife has juiced every morning for many years but her faithful old Philips juicer finally gave up the ghost. It was now a discontinued model so the search for a new one began, reading reviews and watching youtube clips etc. Our main worry was that most juicers under the $200 range did not seem to be good with the harder veges such as carrot and beetroot. Anyway, the Breville Juice fountain was chosen and we haven't looked back. It really is an excellent juicer and it is much easier to clean than our old one - and processes the juice much bett...er too. It is a nice looking machine too and we keep it in a corner of the kitchen on the work bench where as our old one was always tucked away in a cupboard as it was a bit ugly! We have had the machine a year now and it has worked for us nearly every day without a problem. Some of the reviews on here seem to complain about apple juicing but we have never juiced apples so can't provide any feedback there. We would recommend this machine for carrots, beetroot, celery, cucumber and lettuce. My wife gets one large drink with no lumps with 2-3 carrots, 1/4 beetroot, 1/4 cucumber and two sticks of celery so a healthy drink is cheap as chips.
A great juicer
Been making apple and strawberry juice and watermelon juice. It so quick and fast. Easy to clean. Yes a lot of pulp, but thats good for my compost bin. Out of 4 apples and 250gms of strawberrys I got 800mls juice. Out of 1/4 watermelon got about the same for total of $1.55. Update...notice now when juicing juice leaks out under the round pulp collector. Not to happy about this. Will be returning to store for a refund!
October 26th 2019 Update: Leaks juice around the top
Had this juicer since Dec 2018. When used a lot at first, it didnt leak juice. Now it leaks juice from around the top of lid and down the side of juicer. Returning for a refund!
Not much juice
Bought this juicer because of all the good reviews. Juiced a variety of greens (kale, celery, spinach) - provided minimal juice and a whole tonne of pulp in the garbage section. Used about $20 worth of veggies to get a cup of juice - would've been easier to spend $12 for a 1L juice at Top Juice. Don't recommend.
Great: easy to use and clean.
I usually make fruit juice with carrots and celery and they are perfect. The juicer does not work well with frozen fruits. It is compact and extremely clean to use. The amount of juice extracted exceed the average juicer I have tried before. I would recommend to anyone looking for a fair price/quality option.
The price is at a normal price, I bought it at $98 which is alright. The size is okay, can juice out 1.5L that’s mean 6 cups of water which is suitable for a family if each one of you only drink 250ml
There’s a easy clean design, its round shape prevent trap of food in the bleander and it also comes with a brush when you buy it which is so convenient, if you do not want to brush it by yourself, you can also put in to the dishwasher, love it!
Was Ok but not good as I was hoping
I used it to get Apple and carrot juice, It always left big chunks of fruit even though Apples. And from my opinion it’s not worth the money. If you are spending $95 for just a juicer and wasting your fruit as well.
Not worth it. I bought it from good guys and they said it meant to be do that. If you don’t want the chunks go for a big one which is the next model of $167.
Probably not worth it
Sister bought this product and only used it twice, depends on the fruits you buy but you have to buy quite a few apples to get a cup of juice. The cleaning process after is tedious and its quite noisy so you'll have to use it in the daytime. It does its job pretty well but i would probably just go out and buy some juice or boost to save myself the hassle.
Extremely happy with my purchase of this juicer! After watching some documentary movies ie, fat sick and nearly dead. I decided to give juicing a go and borrowed a old juice fountain but found clean up a absolute nightmare but this juicer is compact and easy to clean and I have now ditched the juice fountain for this one. It's only me juicing in our house and it doesn't have a very large capacity so just keep that in mind. Would say perfect for one or two people max. Excellent product none the less
Love it!!! No complaints so far!
I have had this product for about 3 months, got it at a very good price at Harvey Norman. No complaints so far! Been having my fresh juices so easily and don’t have to buy at Boost juice and pay $7 for a cup of healthy drink! Using a flat spatula to remove pulp around the round container makes cleaning a breeze! When it lasts for years then I’ll give it a 5!! But all in all very happy with it.

Amazing Juicer. Too Good for its price
Recently bought it from Good guys store. This juicer is so easy to use and clean and not heavy on your pocket too. Using it every single day for last 2 weeks. Juicer works smoothly and extract maximum juice from all the veggies and fruits with its high power rotor. Highly recommendable to everyone.
7 YEARS - EVERY SINGLE DAY!
This thing is a beast when it comes to longevity. Ours has only just ended its lifespan after 7 years of DAILY use.
Pros - quality, juices 'general' fruit and vege (carrots, apples, oranges)
Cons - clean up might be annoying to some, don't even to juice spinach
Not as good as its other version
I was gifted this.. i found it works perfectly and does the job as it says but leftover collects in a machine so its fill up quite easily and to empty it have to undo everything..but saying i am using it from last 4 years and it works perfectly !!!!
My old fountain juicer
I've had my breville juice fountain for twenty years and just updated to this one today I've had got a lot out of it and was an excellent product I'm sure this will see me through hopefully as the other fountain juicer did all those years ago and thanks to breville for your great products regards Dorothy
I absolutely love this new juicer.
This is the first time I am using a juicer and it is wonderful. The pulp is dry and juices out maximum juice out of any fruit. It's cheap and does a good job. However with soft fruits like strawberries and mangoes it's not that great. Overall I would recommend this to anyone new to juicing.
Great juicer for the short term
I've had this juicer coming up to a year now. It has been fantastic and made great juice 2-3 times a week. I tend to juice apples, cucumbers, oranges and sometimes a bit of ginger. Remember to clean the filters straight after use with a nylon brush as they block easily and can be troublesome to unclog. The blades are getting a bit blunt now and I've looked into replacements which are going to cost $68.69 which seems excessive when i paid $99 for the original machine. Would certainly recommend for light users or if the blade replacement cost was less
Questions & Answers
The arm that goes over the top to hold the lid on has vertical movement and does not hold the lid at all so all the liquid sprays out everywhere.
lid does not clamp down
have the steel clamp bar to the right of the juicer to start with....then the plastic lid has to sit down which it will only do if it is aligned properly on the left hand side where the shute for the pulp is. Once that is aligned properly it will sit down snugly and you can raise the steel bar to close the lid.
