Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer Review
When it comes to eating healthy, there are numerous things that you can do to improve your diet. Overall, however, what it really comes down to is paying attention to what you eat and making sure that you put more fruits and vegetables into your body than anything else. For me, one of the best ways to do that is through juicing.
Before I started making fruit and vegetable juices, I would constantly struggle with trying to incorporate more color and greens into my diet. However, once I discovered the Breville BJS600XL, my whole life changed. Suddenly, I was buying produce like never before, and, more importantly, I was eating it.
If you want to see what the BJS600XL can do for you, then read on my friend. I can only hope that this machine will benefit you as much as it did me.
Powerful 240-Watt Motor
Part of the reason I love juicing so much is that it is such a simple way to add fruits and vegetables to my eating habits. What makes the whole process so easy is that the Breville comes with a powerful motor which can render almost anything into a nice, juicy pulp. For best results, you need to prep your food beforehand (so you don’t clog the machine), but overall you can process almost anything with this juicer.
Before I started juicing, if you had asked me what the difference between a masticating or a centrifugal juicer was, I would have just responded with a blank stare. Simply put, the Breville machine replicates the process of chewing (mastication) so as to break food down and extract the most juice possible.
Whereas centrifugal juicers are meant to work quickly, these kinds of devices are slow operating, thus creating a higher yield and generating less overall waste. If you want to get the most out of your juicer, you need a masticating model.
Directional Juice Flow
As I mentioned above, one thing that you have to consider is clogging. Thankfully, the Breville makes it easy to unclog the BJS600XL by having a directional flow. That means that you can just reverse the direction and pull out any obstructions.
Finally, what makes this juicer so fantastic is the fact that it purifies your juice while it operates. If you don’t like pulp (like me), then you will love the fact that it strains your juice for you, so you don’t have to worry about it. With some fibrous ingredients, pulp is a natural side effect (the mesh can only stop so much), but overall the straining process is much better than I anticipated.

When talking about the Breville BJS600XL, I refer to my life as “before and after.” Before I got this incredible machine, I was eating junk food, and my weight was higher than it had ever been before. Afterward, though, I started really paying attention to what I was eating, and the results have been phenomenal. Whether you want to lose weight or just want to get more vitamins and minerals, the Breville can help you get the most out of your diet.
