The juice cleanse fad may be so 2005, but the act of juicing is timeless. Whether you're concocting a morning beverage, a cocktail mixer, or simply prefer your produce freshly-squeezed, a juicer is a wise investment for practically any household.
But when it comes to appliances, nobody does juicers better than Breville—the industry leader in turning all of your favorite fruits and vegetables into liquid.
“Breville juicers have been our choice in all of our smaller locations since we opened," says Max Alcobi, co-founder and CEO of Loco Coco, whose favorite model for commercial use is the Breville 800JEXL. "It handles large volumes and never gives up.”
“The stainless steel seamless construction of the unit is so stable and well-built that we never encounter problems, which we do with all of our other equipment. It’s quite impressive that these juicers are built to last like that,” he adds.
Lucky for most consumers, Breville juicers are also now more affordable than ever, with many models priced competitively compared to others on the market.
Looking to make an investment in your health and bank account (because let's face it, those $9-a-pop blends from your favorite stores are burning a hole in your wallet)? Check out the five best Breville juicers below.

Best Citrus Press: Breville BCP600SIL Citrus Press Motorized Juicer
Best Citrus Press
Removable Parts: Yes | Extraction System: Juicing cone with fins | Juicer Material: Plastic, metal | Feed Chute: No
- Small and compact
- Fun to use
- Great for single-person use
- Requires more manual labor
- Not effective on most vegetables
Why we chose it: A motorized citrus press is ideal for the consumer who lives alone and doesn’t mind putting in a bit of elbow grease.
You don’t need a big appliance to enjoy the wonders of freshly-squeezed juice. This motorized citrus press may require a bit of manual labor, but it’s actually quite fun and entertaining to use as you press down the lever to activate the motor and yield fresh juice. Of course, it’s designed to accommodate only round, citrus fruit halves (and likely for no more than 1-2 people at a time, unless you feel like giving your hand and wrist a real workout), but it’s a wonderful foundation to the juice of your dreams. Simply add pre-juiced vegetable juices for added health benefits.
How We Chose These Products
Since the number of new Breville juicers is limited, we provided a list of models to chefs and juicing experts like Alcobi for their initial thoughts and rankings. From there, we identified which appliance worked best for various consumers and purposes and evaluated their extensive number of reviews and testimonials to narrow down the list to five diverse options.
Features to Keep in Mind When Shopping for Breville Juicers
The more powerful the motor, the quicker you’ll have juice. Units with higher wattage also tend to use up more of the fruit or vegetable than other models, which makes the juicing process less wasteful and more environmentally friendly. If efficiency is a priority and/or you want to maintain the nutrients of a harder-to-break-down rind or skin, make sure the motor is a minimum of 700 watts.
Most Breville juicers have removable plastic and metal parts that can be washed safely in a dishwasher. They also come with a standard cleaning brush that you can dip in soap and water prior to removing sticky residue from hard-to-reach crevices.
A 35.2 oz. jug is standard for most Breville juicer models, though some products boast bigger options to accommodate larger families or prepping for future consumption.
Ask the Experts
Q: What is the most important factor to keep in mind when shopping for a Breville juicer?
"It's a matter of how much space you have to use for a juicer. They all function quite similarly with the deviation of capacity and output. Most homes don't need the largest juicer available," says Alcobi. "Get what you think looks the best for your home and kitchen, because if it’s Breville, it’s the best."
Q: What can I juice in a Breville juicer? Whole apples? Does produce need to be peeled?
"I would not suggest ever putting a whole fruit into any juicer in the world," says Alcobi. "Always cut them in fourths or halves. You don’t necessarily have to peel any citrus fruit. It will just change the flavors to be a more bitter juice, but most of the nutrients live in the peel so you’re getting all the benefits you can if you keep it."
Q: Can you put ice in a Breville juicer?
"Don’t ever do that!" says Alcobi. Adding ice to a centrifugal juicer can blunt the blades; adding ice to a slow juicer will jam the machine. If you want to cool your juice, add ice cubes, or blend with ice in a blender.
Whether you’re pining for a punch or serially slamming back celery, a juicer is a necessity for any health-conscious household that requires their daily, nutrient-packed fix. Breville is the industry leader when it comes to this type of appliance, so revel in the fact that they’re now as affordable as they are reliable and make that purchase. You and your palate will not regret it.
