We have been juicing for about two years now. Our first juicer was a XL
Juicer. It was a fine little juicer and perfect for getting started. It was at a price point we felt comfortable with while we tried to decide if juicing was really for us and it did what it was supposed to do, it made juice. The downside to it was it was messy, it did not come with a pitcher that fit under the spout and had several parts to clean. It honestly got to the point that we didn’t want to juice regularly.
Fed up with the mess and the lack of juicing I decided to Google “cleaning a juicer”. I found the video below. When I saw how streamlined the Breville Juice fountain was and how quickly he was able to clean it I decided to buy one. The results from the juice fountain have been superb. We have been using it for about a year and a half and it is still juicing as well as it did on the first juicing and clean up is as easy as the video shows. I have very limited counter top space but the Breville juice fountain has certainly earned a permanent spot.
I only do two things differently from the video.
1. I always wipe down the lower half of the unit that houses the motor, including the underside, because juice will occasionally drip down there.
2. I never throw away the pulp! That goes into the compost bin for the garden.
