This juicer can join the other ones on the footpath

This juicer produces very juicy pulp, which means I have about a quarter less juice in the jug compared to my previous juicer. At times the last part of the veggies get stuck between the chute and the filter basket, the juicer starts to dance over the kitchen bench because the motor goes wild and smelly, which leaves an unpleasant aftertaste in your mouth. Also, whole chunks end up in the pulp container, no juice extracted. Parts of the pulp escape upwards through the food pusher, and juice seeps through the sides of the pulp container, both resulting in frequent extra wiping of kitchen cupboards and bench.
I regularly noticed this juicer sitting in the street and wondered why, I now have understood the reason and I am ready to do the same. Luckily I did not pay the $ 250 sale price at David Jones, but a lot less at Breville warehouse. I have never been more dissatisfied with any electrical equipment and question the professionalism of the technicians/designers/businessmen who put this product on the market. I recommend it to be removed from sales as it is not doing what it is meant to do, extract the liquid from fruit and vegetables and provide a healthy drink.

Excellent juicer, solid performer

I bought one from the Good Guys for $167.

Easy to assemble, dead simple controls of high, low or off. The switch is an old school toggle type, a satisfying clunk when switching on or off. Consider it will last a very long time.

Low speed is meeting soft fruit juicing needs, harder stuff like carrots and apples juice easily. High speed really gets things going, I have a feeling you get the most juice from high speed although I have little to back this up.

Once high speed winds up, the noise can be a bit high especially if you're an early riser as the house will know what you're doing. Its not jet engine levels but that juicing basket really does move and generate a bit of noise. Personally I dont have a problem with it. All part of the theatre.

In that case, low speed works fine for the likely breakfast juice types.

Although a general juicing caveat and not directly this units tendency, be prepared for using volume to get decent juice amounts. Nine or ten big oranges for a full mug, several carrots, several apples and a palm sized chunk of ginger to generate enough juice for one big serve or two moderate. If you intend to juice regularly, stock up.

The feed chute does a great job of containing product dropped into it, as they bounce and splash on the spinning juicer baskets shredder teeth. Keep the feed plunger near and you wont have a clean up issue, some product does splash.

Doesnt seem to do loose or leafy product well unless you juice it with other product. Having said that, the amount of juice from leaf material is obviously going to be less, again the volume idea.

Rubber sucker feet on the engine casing make it a certain fit on the bench top. Will not move. There is a metal U-shaped loop connected to the base that swings over and clips over the juicing housing, holding it secure. There is a safety switch built in, cant turn the unit on unless that loop is in place.

Cleaning is as simple as rinsing, a brush is provided to scrub the basket and is a perfect cleaning tool. Re-assembly is simple as the parts fit together like Lego, there are no threads to screw onto or pins to replace, it just all fits together.

Excellent product, very happy with the purchase.

A faulty and expensive product

A friend gave me this juicer a week ago. He had it at home and never used it. The first time I used it juicing carrots and beetroot and it was okay. Today I juiced carrots and by the sixth kilo it started sticking, let off a burning smell and seized up. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. If you bought cheap then you could justify the weakness however my friend paid full price for junk. Show details

It just works

Easy to clean and fast, with a big chute. This is an excellent juicer. We've owned it for about 8 years. It's probably been used about 500 times and, although it shows wear and a little discoloration, it keeps going, juicing and doing the job. This was after two broken Sunbeam juicers, we couldn't be happier.

Fantastic Juicer

This juicer is so easy to use and I've bought a few different ones in my lifetime. The fruit can be put in whole, the pulp that comes our it nearly dry, there are no bits in the juice and its easy to clean. Only thing that I found a little annoying is getting the part that pushes the fruit down to align properly though really that's not much of an issue just a bit fidly if you are working fast.

Awesome Juicer

Easy to use, produces tasty juice. Must clean juicer properly straight after every use not Days later for the juicer to perform its purpose. If you don’t then you’ll have problems every time you use the juicer as fruit bits dry up within the siv if not cleaned properly. Show details

Loud and juicy

Been using this juicer for years without a problem

Easy to clean and quick to use I would reccomend

Doesn't have any fancy features and is no good for delicate fruit but perfect for vegtables and regular fruit Show details

Love this juicer

This juicer is quick and efficient. The juice is clear and there is no pulp. I place a biodegradable bag in the pulp container and put it in the compost bin. No mess and minimal washing. Usually a quick rinse does it. I am very happy with this product and highly recommend it. Show details

Great product

Brought this juicer in Christmas and it's a game changer! It worked perfectly and so easy to use and clean. It's a bit bulky but overall it's a perfect juicer that can make fresh juice every day. Show details

Life changing product

Juicing as opposed to blending is suitable for individuals with poor gut health, being more gentle on your digestive system. I find celery and pear produce a sweet tasting juice Show details

Wonderful !!

What an improvement. Our old juicer from about 12 years ago was inefficient and difficult to clean. The Juice Fountain Plus is so powerful and produces a large volume of juice. It takes large chunks and is super easy to clean - as long as you wash it IMMEDIATELY after juicing. In fact, running cold water for most parts is sufficient. The brush provided is necessary for the mesh. Great value. Show details

Cleanest juicer I’ve ever used

This is the cleanest juicer I’ve ever used. There is little mess and it brings out heaps of juice, making the most of the veggie or fruit. I would definitely recommend this to health junkies Show details

Sturdy machine!

This juicer performed wonderfully for me. It is sturdy and hasn't malfunctioned in the six months that I have it. I used it on a daily bases for two months no problems. Like any machine, you need to use it properly and no put very tough cores or stems on it. Read up on how to juice properly or get tips from YouTube to get the most of your machine. I give it a four because it doesn't juice small leaves like spinach very well. Other than that, I love my juicer.

How do I get the mesh with juicer container and the plastic surround to come off?

Harry K.

Hi Corinne. The mesh sits comfortably within the plastic surround. To remove you gently lift around the edges and it will come off.

Thanks so much for your reply. I persevered and finally got it off.

How can I uncouple the juicer or remove the bit where the fruit sits to juice.
