Build Quality and Design
The Breville Juice Fountain Cold feels like a sturdy machine with a stainless steel construction and BPA-free plastic parts.
While it’s spacious, I like its premium look and certainly wouldn’t mind showing it off in my kitchen.
How Long Is the Warranty?
The Breville BJE430SIL comes with a short 1-year warranty, which does leave something to be desired and this can sometimes be indicative of the juicer’s longevity.
Juice Quality and Yield
For the best bang for your buck, you should use the low-speed setting for soft fruits and greens and high-speed for hard produce.
Also, you should mostly use large or bulky produce like:
Centrifugal juicers, this one included, generally don’t do very well with leafy greens.
One person did say you can place leafy greens inside collard greens, roll it up very tightly, and push it through the juicer to get more juice from greens.
This juicer yields a good quality and great tasting juice with little foam. If you store it properly, you will preserve the nutrient value for longer and the juice can last up to 3 days.
Performance and Noise
With speeds of up to 13,000 RPM, the Breville Juice Fountain Cold is a powerful machine and will efficiently extract the juice from your produce, leaving a fairly dry pulp.
The juicer is quite noisy in use on both speed settings. So if loud performance is a deal-breaker for you, you may have to reconsider this one.
Is It Easy to Use?
After you’ve unboxed and rinsed the detachable components, the assembly is easy and you’ll be ready to make your first juice in a matter of minutes.
The juicer is straightforward to operate and most whole fruits will fit into the wide feed chute without needing to be cut into smaller pieces.
Is It Easy to Clean?
Most reviews I’ve seen say the juicer is pretty straightforward to disassemble and clean.
However, its micro-mesh filter does require a minute extra of your time for a thorough brushing compared to the filters in other centrifugal juicers.
While most detachable parts are top shelf dishwasher safe, a few are not: namely the juice cover as well as the jug and sealing lid. These few pieces you just rinse thoroughly by hand and set to dry.
Should I Buy the Breville Juice Fountain Cold?
Overall, I’m impressed with the Breville Juice Fountain Cold. It carries a premium look and feel and comes at an affordable price.
If you’re looking to make large quantities of juice in batches—which you can even store for a few days—in a small amount of time, then this is the juicer for you.
