Breville is an Australian company offering small household appliances. They are reputable in the industry, and have some well known espresso machines, microwaves and tools on the market. Today we will be discussing a juicer by this Aussie company, in this Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Extractor Review.
Like the name suggests, the Breville BJE200XL is compact – it measures 9-1/2 by 8-3/4 by 16 inches all told. Despite its small size, the motor is 700 watts with a motor at 14000 RPMs. What’s especially handy is that the feed chute is large for a juicer this size – three inches.
Even though the juicer is smaller, because it is so powerful it is possible to juice a large amount of plant matter and not have to worry about the machine heating up. It is also easy to do so because the feed chute is so large you can just place whole fruits and vegetables into it.
It’s a centrifugal juicer – so it will be ideal for juicers looking to use fruits, and vegetables such as carrots or tomatoes. The downside is, it will juice leafy greens, but not as well as a masticulating juicer. However, for a centrifugal machine the quality of the juice is excellent – the pulp can be dry to the bone.
The juicer is composed of sturdy materials – stainless steel micromesh filter, a titanium cutting disc, and a three inch circular feed tube that can process whole fruits. The juicer comes equipped with a compact juice fountain – but it is heavy duty with a centered knife blade assembly. The parts are dishwasher safe and it comes with a custom cleaning brush as well.
Although this juicer is dishwasher safe, it can be very inconvenient to clean. The juicer is a commitment to care for and utilize – more experienced users might be better suited for the Breville BJE200XL.

Final Thoughts on the Breville BJE200XL Juicer
Because of how small it is, its surprising that this is a quality juicer that packs a punch. It is probably built more for an experienced juicer because it is a little harder to maintain and clean up after. However, the machine does not work well juicing seaweed or leafy greens, which is something that more experienced juicers might desire. For experienced juicers interested in juicing fruit and vegetables like carrots and tomatoes, this is a great pick due to the quality of the juice and the craftsmanship of the machine.
