The Good :

Good quality centrifugal juicer

Though this centrifugal juicer is at a more basic level, it still has the power and resolution to quickly juice and produce healthy amounts of juice from various fruits and vegetables in comparison to other more powerful and feature-packed, masticating juicers.

Juice is tasty and nutritious

The output of juice produced with this unit is good, tasty and just as nutritious as the output from larger capacity juicers. Maintaining and cleaning this smaller juicer’s pulp extractor and filter is the key to the quality, taste and nutritional value of the juice output.

Efficient

This juicer is efficient in that it can extract most of the juice content from fruits and vegetables. Any reported food waste is due to not maintaining the pulp, filter and blade components through routine cleaning. Savings can be made on fruits and vegetables as long as the unit is carefully maintained.

Basic and easy to use

With this unit you’ll get the experience you need to initiate juicing at a less confusing and hectic pace. You can juice fruits and vegetable and even delve into heavier leafy greens with a little practice, such as bundling the greens together before placing them in the chute. You can juice as much or as little as you want without having to remember complicated instructions.

Inexpensive

In comparison to other juicers, this basic and compact unit is sold at a reasonable price, particularly for those just starting out with juicing, as well as for those who aren’t ready to go full force expense wise while getting acclimated to the juicing routine.

The bad:

A little less easy to clean

In spite of this juicer’s compact size and basic parts, cleaning it can be an issue as its inner pulp unit, disc filter and blades can quickly fill or become entangled with fibrous fruits and veggie throw offs. Efficient and immediate cleaning of these components is the best way to deal with plugging, clogging and entangling.

Disassembling of the component parts on a regular basis can be frustrating as it requires an almost immediate cleaning response so the fibrous materials don’t dry on any of the parts.

May not be complex enough for you

The limited number of functions on this juicer may not be enough to do what you want with juicing projects. Its smaller size and capacity may limit the kinds of foods that you want to juice or process on a regular basis. It could get frustrating not having other functions available to complete larger and more time consuming recipes, and other food projects.

Best suited for:

The novice or beginning juicer who may not juice on a regular basis or just wants to try juicing before moving on to a higher level or more advanced juicer with additional features. This is also a less expensive alternative for those just experimenting with basic kinds of juicing rather than more complicated juicing projects.

Not so great for:

Those individuals who are really into juicing would probably not be interested in the limits of this juicer, particularly if they are way beyond the novice juicer level. Those who are interested in additional extractor or food processing functions may not like the pure and simple, and on and off, limited features of this compact juicer.

Conclusion

The Breville Compact Juice Fountain is just that, compact, portable and easy enough to operate without a lot of instructional time and effort to get it into juicing mode. Its powerful motor and RPM operating capacity make this little extractor fast moving, efficient and a juice producer.
