Had high hopes
We thought this was going to be a great citrus press and where really happy when we first started using it, seemed really good, easy to use and got lots of juice per lime, but after about 15 limes it just stopped. we had a couple of buckets worth of limes to do and freeze. we took it back as we thought it was faulty and they gave us another one. it worked perfectly for another 15 or so limes and stopped again. it seems that the motor is over heating. this is ridiculous for such an otherwise great machine. we will be returning as this is not fit...for purpose, 15 limes is not much for such a powerfu, heavy duty and expensive machine. Breville you could have done well here with a bit better cooling designed into the motor installation, a fan on the bottom of the shaft and a cooling vent would probably have been fine, but fully inclosed like it is the motor has no chance. Build Quality is great, just the design is flawed,

Another Breville Heap of Crap!
If you want to juice more than six oranges, don't buy this over priced rubbish. Cone falls off repeatedly, and the machine shuts down before it juices one lousy bucket full of fruit!

love it/hate it
I love the concept of this juicer, the overall quality is crap. I make orange juice every day & need a quick reliable machine & after 2(of these Breville Citrus Press Pro 800CP just stopping, they just dont last. Never again, back using Aldi citrus juicer it has never had any problems in the years of use. Do not buy, if you get one given to you or find a bargin on gumtree go for it, but dont be surprised when it dies. Also breville customer service is appalling.

Magnetic cone fails after 6 months. Breville says it is not covered by 2 year warranty.
The magnetic cone that holds the fruit in place keeps falling off. I bought this in December 2017 for my mother who has a shoulder problem. So I contacted Breville, who offered to sell me one for $27.57 plus $10 postage.$37.57 each 6 months? No, I don't think so, Breville.
This is the second appliance from Breville that has not been fit for purpose.. I dont think I will be buying another one. Customer service is also non-existent, with it being made obvious that they just dont care. Maybe they bought that jacket too...

Overheats and crappy customer service
Machine over heats after 10 to 15 fruits being juiced. Called their customer service and a very rude man told me that this is normal. Breville, do not hire people who hate helping customers, its not that hard. I rarely write reviews about any product but this time I had to.
Bulky Useless Piece Of Junk
I purchased this thinking I could juice lemons (when in season) and freeze, however after juicing just 7 lemons, I could smell something & I thought it may just be "the new motor smell", squeezed another 3 lemons and it stopped working. It was hot to touch and it smelt. I unplugged it and decided to try it again after 15 minutes. It squeezed one lemon & stopped again. I called Breville and the first thing she asked me was "How many lemons did you squeeze?" I told her, & at the same time, I was thinking, What does it matter?? It is a bulky, expe...nsive juicer. It is SUPPOSED to be made for juicing large quantity of juice. Why would someone purchase a BULKY EXPENSIVE juicer to juice 10 oranges???? I was told that the machine was not made to juice more than 10 oranges at a time & the machine then has to rest for 4 hours!!. ARE YOU FOR REAL??? I have 5 in my family. You need at least 3 oranges for a glass of orange juice. Do I just tell half of my family that they can have their morning orange juice at lunch time or maybe dinner time? I have a NO BRAND small juicer that is over 15 years old and I have used it to squeeze NOT one but TWO boxes of oranges/lemons at a time, no smell, no rest. Why on earth would someone purchase an EXPENSIVE & BULKY machine so they can juice 3 glasses of orange juice at a time? I was told the machine was faulty because of the smell, however I returned the machine for a refund, NOT an exchange THINK TWICE before purchasing. What a waste of time & money.
I have had mine for over a year, worked well till this morning, the motor burned out, could smell the burnt out motor and smoke coming out. Have written to Breville this morning, will wait for their respond. Was good while it worked. Has anyone else had the same problem?

Overheating/stops working and lost part
Great Machine, Have one that is around 5 years old, I think. i have Lost/misplaced the Juicer Cone, cannot seem to be able to buy a replacement. So purchase a new model a week or 2 ago, stops working after a couple of oranges or lemons being juiced.
New model is about half the weight of my original model.
Now have my original working with new models juicer cone(most expensive way to purchase a spare part!?!?!
Origanl model great, new one rubbish, but atleast i have a new Juicer cone for my old one
New model over heats
Overheating and Filtering Problems
I was amazed with the look and construction, really liked it in the shop. Started using it – very quiet operation, effortless juicing. But after a few oranges started overheating and nasty smell slowly filled in my kitchen, then it stopped dead. I waited 15 minutes and tried again, I tried to put as minimal pressure as possible during juicing. After three oranges it stopped operating again. The smell spoiled my juice. Was very disappointed. Other minuses: The pulp filter was filling out too quickly. After squeezing all the juice from the orange (which is done extremely well) it stays with the pulp and getting thrown away.

Questions & Answers
with all the bad experiences people have had of not being able to juice allot of oranges has the problem been addressed and corrected. I am wanting to buy but not if magnetic holder falls off and overheats too easy. Thanks Wendy
No idea. We returned 2 then gave up.
What is "alot of oranges" ? I have two of these units (at two addresses) but only juice two large glasses of juice per day (oranges, lemons and large grapefruit). Never had an issue.
As per my review we are now on our third unit and have never had overheating issues, but we wouldn't juice more that 5 to 10 oranges and limes at one go. The juicing cone isn't magnetic, its held on by plastic circlips which can wear over time but the machine comes with several spares. I have noticed a few minor design changes between the 3 units we've owned but it's the same basic unit, just slightly improved (and some accessories like plastic dust cover and fine pulp filter have been deleted).
