Does the best job. Minor design flaw
I did a lot of research before purchase.. This juicer scores high for yield (how much juice is extracted), ease of use, versatility and ease of cleaning. I would have given it 5 stars except for an annoying design fault with the juicing cup (the bit that sits over your fruit. It has a little plastic circlip that holds it in place to allow for easy removal of the cup for cleaning. The cup has a tendency to pop out of its locator. Breville have indirectly acknowledged this design is flawed because they now provide four spares with each machine. H...aving said that, my research did not uncover a better juicer for citrus fruits. The lever action requires little effort, the juice yield is better that any other product, the unit is very quiet and the parts are all easily and quickly removed for cleaning (which is also very quick and easy). Works with limes, lemons, oranges and grapefruits with no change of parts to accommodate the different sized fruits. The strainer seems to allow just the right amount of pulp into the extracted juice (very healthy I'm told). The unit is housed in a stainless steel casing and seems very solid. If you enjoy fresh citrus juice, give this product some serious consideration.

Best juicer in 30 years
We've had an orange tree for more than 30 years and went through lots of citrus juicers before we found the Breville 800CP. We have fresh squeezed orange juice 5 days a week and the 800CP is the only one that can handle this for years on end. And so easy to use with the lever action and fruit dome which fits all sizes of oranges, limes and lemons. We've just purchased our third 800CP - they tend to last about 5 years then the gearbox gives up.

I thought it died then it came back to life
The kids were juicing about 10 oranges and i was telling my friend how much i liked the juicer and what a great solid design it is. Then in that moment it just stopped with a bad electric motor smell. Dissappointing after about 15 months of use. However, seemed it just needed a rest and it started working again when i checked 20 mins later. So seems to be a protective mechanism.
Annoying how the bit that fits over the fruit has such a flimsy attachment and often falls off.
I have been using the stainless steel version for over two years to make two glasses of fresh orange juice every morning. A brilliant functional design, works faultlessly and it still looks like new!
Easy to clean - immediately after use I just rinse/brush the units clean under cold water then pour hot water from the kettle (after making cup of tea) over the unit to help it dry (with paper towel) and then reassemble the unit.
Fresh pressed orange juice is so much nicer, and cheaper, than the bottled variety. Buy oranges by the bag, enjoy the seasons, navel / valencia, from around Australia. Fresh is definitely best.
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 My New ‘Toy’!
I was sick of hand juicing oranges from my heavily fruited trees every year. I researched available citrus pressers, and this came on top. Today I juiced 30 oranges, of varying sizes, in a fraction of the time taken hand juicing. The 800CP didn’t miss a beat. It juices fruit thoroughly, straight into the jug (not provided) underneath without drips.
Other reviews stated problems with the juicer cone constantly falling off, yet Breville have addressed this.
The cone didn’t fall off, and Breville have supplied extra C Clips should this become problematic in future.
Easy to clean- I just ran components under warm water, but they are dishwasher safe.
I’m actually looking forward to next ‘big juicing’
Purchased in July 2019 at Bing Lee Physical store for $209.00.
I have had this juicer for many years. It is easy to clean. It is very quick and very easy to use. I use this regularly and have had no problems with it.
The only con , is that it's a little heavy to lift in and out of the cupboard and place on the bench top.
During the citrus season and during spring summer, I use this so much , it just stays on my bench top, as it is fairly compact.
I am recommending this , especially for people with families, we easily juice a bag of oranges in minutes. The pith and the seeds are automatically strained out , so the juice is delicious.
I can't quite remember when I bought it but it has had a lot of use and I believe it is at least 5 years old.

Could do better
I have had this press for a week now and it is very good at doing what it's supposed to do. It seems simple and solid enough and clean up is quick and easy.It is also chunky enough to have it's own place on my kitchen counter top. Time will tell whether it will be a hand me down or end up under the sink with the Scotty dog biscuit tin.
At $220 it's not cheap so I expected near perfection which sadly I don't have.
There is a cone on the handle for holding the fruit while pressing which constantly disengages itself and randomly drops of. Could ...
Excellent product, saves time, & easy to clean!
Because our family prefers the full flavor of fresh orange juice, I decided to purchase the Breville Citrus Press Pro after reading favourable reviews on www.productreview.com.
I have used this product almost on a weekly basis to juice two bags of oranges for approximately 12 months and there is nothing to complain about.
At first the appliance did overheat and switch off, but this issue was resolved after I read the user manual. I realised that I had been juicing the fruit halves for too long and this resulted in the motor switching off...to protect from overheating and burnout. The manual does state that "The 800 Class Citrus Press juices very quickly so each fruit half will be juiced in a few seconds". So I simply followed the directions, reduced the juicing time to a few seconds and the problem was solved. I have since, not had the appliance stop working and I can even juice two bags of oranges in one session, and do so quickly. Cleaning is a breeze. After each use, the parts are very easy to remove and clean with soapy water. Verdict: This product works exactly as advertised. The Citrus Press saves me time, is easy to clean and delivers fresh orange, grapefruit, lime and lemon juice that we can drink straight away or use to blend with watermelon and other fruits for a delicious juice. Thank you Breville!
Brilliant - works very well
This citrus press works simply perfectly for us.
In addition it is durable and very easy to clean.
In my eyes the citrus press is worth every single cent if you have to process a lot of citrus fruit.
The time saving compared to manual processing is staggering.
As a result, no more body aches!
Love This Product
Really happy with the juice I get from this product. So easy to clean! It is used every Sunday. Usually 2 largish oranges gets us a small glass for one. I juice 10 oranges with ease for the family, Have not had any issues with this product so far. Based on some of the reviews I hope it stays that way as I am loving my juicer!!!
Have had this for a couple of years and am generally happy with its performance EXCEPT that the cone has chipped and broken at the attaching spike and the coating on the body under the strainer and at the point where the cone attaches has chipped away and has left quite sharp and dangerous edges. I would not expect a product in this price range to be in this condition after a couple of years. We only ever juice 2 oranges per day so not overused.
I bought top of the range ( commercial ) model at DJ. Have been using it for more than 5 years. In summer time I am a juiceboy and this juicer is top: lives oranges and grapefruit skins dry. Fast squeeze , easy 1 min clean & WIPE. ( about 8-10 oranges to 1 liter)
With 2 oranges you can have a glass of fresh juice in one minute. Takes all the orange pulp and makes a lot of juice. Very quiet to operate for early morning risers. Made of heavy duty steel, it is a must for any kitchen. Looks great on my kitchen bench too with my steel appliances. Love it!!!!
Loved it. finally a quiet product that is solid and easy to clean and can handle any size citrud
Hooray . What an improvement on my old plastic breville juicer that had a citrus attachment that required a finger breaking move to detach for cleaning and roared like a chainsaw. However i was gutted when the handle jammed in the secondweek. Thank goodness a reviewer on this site provided the solution _to tighten the screw. Breville should add that advice to instructions. So easy to clean. And it is not necessary to hold it down hard nor for very long. Just make sure the strainer and bowl bits are fitted in correct place . Happy and simple juicing!
quiet and easy to clean and ss not plastic
just a loose nut that results in handle malfunction. easily adjusted so no problem
Heavy duty citrus press
I had a few citrus juicers over the years but have now settled for the Breville Citrus Press.
I bought it 6 months ago on sale. We juice citrus fruits about 3 times a week for a family of four. Three oranges will make a glass of juice. We use roughly 12 oranges at a time.
We had a cheap plastic unit which was taking too long to juice and it broke after few months. We then bought a centrifugal juicer to juice different types of fruit and vegetable juices but the citrus juice did not taste the same as freshly press juice.
I saw the Brevi...lle citrus press in store and liked the solid feel and look of it. Did some research online and decided to buy it. It is that easy to use that even the 3 years old will have a go at it. Cleaning only requires a quick brush and rinse or on busy mornings, the parts just go into the dishwasher.
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.
Look, very quiet operation, effortless juicing
Overheating, juice stays with the pulp and getting thrown away
Great for juicing
Had the older version for years, using it most days. Though quite heavy in weight, best orange juice squeezer i've ever had however the lip eventually came off.
Replaced it with the newer lighter model about 6 months ago. So far no problems, and i don't have to permanently leave it on kitchen bench because of the weight.
New version didn't have the additional lemon pulp filter but the one from my previous juicer fits perfectly
Light weight, great for squeezing citrus fruit
Didn't come with lemon pulp filter
Excellent juicer! Fast and easy to clean!
We love this juicer for so many reasons. You can make your juice in a clean and fast way. Extracting the juice is very easy with the soft grip handle. We use it a lot and have had no problems with it so far! I highly recommend it to everyone!
-It has a juicing cone that fits different sizes of fruits and veggies. -The juicer press arm comes in handy. It leaves your hands clean as you don't need to have direct contact with the fruits/veggies you are juicing. -The filter is adjustable into fine or coarse thus giving you the option to choose to decrease or increase the pulp content in the juice. -Removable parts are dish washer safe. -The juicer comes in with a dust cover that covers the juicing cone and juice collector.
Love It But....
I've had many citrus juicers but the Breville Citrus Press was my all-time favourite. Alas, though, after at least five years of smooth working, the arm seized and it wouldn't function. I had it repaired for about $45 and it worked for another year. Now, the same problem. I've been careful with that arm, making certain it doesn't get forced in any way, so am now worried I am on the hunt once again for the perfect juicer as shelling out $45 every year doesn't seem sensible.
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).
