In this week’s equipment review, we are back with another countertop appliance. In this Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain review, we will take a closer look at one of the smallest juicers from Breville.
It may be small, but the Juice Fountain Compact delivers all the power and performance you’d expect from a Breville juicer. This unit was cleverly designed to use less parts and take up less space than ordinary juicers. With its solid performance whether juicing fruit or leafy vegetables, this unit is one of the most solid options on the market, for those who are looking for a good and compact juicer.
Nowadays, more and more people try to have a healthy diet and lifestyle. Men and women are actively pursuing fitness routines, nutrient-rich and clean diets in order to revitalize their well-being. One of the easiest ways to get those nutrients that your body needs is through juicing, and there is where the Breville Compact Juice Fountain comes in handy.
This unit is a centrifugal juicer, which means that this is the kind of juicer that does its job in a flash which is perfect for people on the go. As the name suggests this is a compact juicer that will not take up too much space on your counter. For us, this is one of the greatest advantages of this product because it means that you can always have it on your countertop, which will allow you to use it more often.
Another great benefit of this model is its power. The secret behind the high speed of this unit is its 700W motor that operates at 14000 RPMs. Having such speeds is perfect for saving time, making it super convenient for busy persons. The only downside of such a powerful motor is the noise it produces when it’s on. It really gets loud when it is time to make some juices!
One of the features that make the Breville Compact Juice Fountain so easy to use is its large 3-inch wide chute feed. This will allow you to juice whole fruits and vegetables without pre-cutting. This makes it much faster to use than some other juicers as you will not have to spend a bunch of time chopping your ingredients up.
The unit also comes with a patented center knife blade cutter setup. This system guarantees that whenever fruit or vegetables are placed in the feeding chute, a tiny dual-bladed knife cuts up and grates the pulp into tinier particles while forcing it against the filter of the juicer. In terms of juice, the quality is good but not the best. We would love to taste a smother juice and with less foam.
Last but not least, one of the things that make this unit easy to use is its cleaning process. At first, this may not seem a big deal, but believe us when we say that the cleaning process is one of the most important things in this type of equipment. If this process is hard and painful to do you will not use the juicer, and you just waste your money.
But luckily in the Breville Compact Juice Fountain, this process is actually very straight forward. The unit only has 5 components that you need to clean and maintain after a juicing: the juice jug, the plunger, the shredding disk, the pulp catcher and the cover. Both parts are safe to clean in the dishwasher in case you do not want to wash them manually. The package also includes a custom cleaning brush to help you with maintenance.

We consider this juicer a great product for those looking for a compact and powerful juicer. Its simplistic design makes it easy to use and to clean. It incorporates everything you need in a basic juicer and will not disappoint.
However, the lack of some options like control speed, having the ability to juice wheatgrass or green leafy veggies might be a turn off for more experienced juicers. But the pros of the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain certainly outweigh the cons making it a great solid option for most people, especially if you are just starting.
if you are looking for a powerful, compact, and easy-to-use centrifugal juicer that will make a great juice in no time, then the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain may be the one for you.
