Howdy my “fresh juice” loving partners. Today, I’ll be reviewing the Breville Juicer model #JE95XL. Although mine is a somewhat older model, Breville’s newer models appear to have carried over all the same awesome features plus have added some cool new ones as well.
I’ve also included a short video where you can see the juicer in action. Check it out below!
In the video above I’m juicing 4 apples, half a lemon, and 1 cucumber. This one is a hit with the kiddos and is a great way to “sneak in” a few veggies they might not regularly eat.
The juicer I’m using in the video below is well over three years old and is used almost daily. This thing is seriously high quality. You can tell just by handling it that it’s made of solid materials that are made to last.
Size of Feeder Chute
The feeder chute (where you put your fruits and veggies in to be juiced) on this juicer is huge! 3″ in diameter huge to be exact. This allows you to juice most fruits and veggies whole without having to cut them into smaller pieces first. Total time saver.
Size of Pulp Collector
This is another great feature that most people don’t even consider when searching for a juicer. However, the size of the pulp collector (2 1/2 liters) on the Breville Juicer comes in super handy especially when making lots of juice at one time. Plus, it’s super easy to clean so win-win.
The Juice Jug
This is one of my favorite features of the Breville Juicer. Whereas some other juicers make it so you need to juice directly into a cup, the Breville Juicer comes with a one liter juice jug that your juice goes directly into while juicing. This comes in really handy when you’re making juice for more than one person or when you want to make lots of juice at one time without having to worry about getting your ratios of fruits and veggies right each time.
Additionally, the juice jug comes with a froth separator which is good if you’re not really a froth person.
Easy to Clean and Assemble
You know what you do with a juicer that’s hard to assemble and even harder to clean? Not use it, that’s what. Seriously, if you’re not looking to purchase an expensive dust collector then you need to make sure your juicer is easy to assemble and clean. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself quickly not wanting to use it. Fortunately, this Breville Juicer is both easy to clean and assemble.
It’s Dishwasher Safe
I always just wash mine in the sink but pretty much all of the parts (except the motor) are dishwasher safe. This is of course useful if you don’t feel like…oh, I don’t know…doing dishes.
Again, not a feature I would have thought was important when I first started looking at juicers but it is something I’m glad I have now.
Basically, it has a slow speed and a fast speed. The slower speed is recommended for softer fruits and veggies like oranges and cucumbers while the faster speed is recommended for harder fruits and veggies like carrots, apples, and beets.
Remember what Tim “the Tool Man” Taylor always used to say on the show Home Improvement? More power! Well, he probably wouldn’t have to say that about this juicer as is packs a whopping 850 watts of power. This allows you to juice things like carrots and beets with ease.

Juice Jug Made of Plastic
The only gripe I have about my particular model is that the juice jug is made of a thin plastic that becomes a little difficult to get clean when used a lot. Although it’s lasted over three years of regular use, it does have a couple chips in it from accidental drops onto the floor and also now looks permanently dirty no matter how much I clean it. But for being over three years old and being used almost daily I guess it’s not really that big of a deal.
Overall, this is a great juicer that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in getting started in juicing. Also, it should be noted that there are many Breville models available that look incredible depending on your needs. Check those out here.
