The Breville BJE510XL is not quite as cheap as the Breville BJE200XL although for the money, you do get a more sophisitcated machine. Just looking at it, you can tell that the BJE510XL Ikon juicer is a bit more advanced. The features that this model offers are:
- reasonable price
- variable juicing speeds
- separate pulp collection container
- easy to clean
- wide feed chute
- includes a cleaning brush
- 1000ml juice jug with built in froth separator
You should be able to find the Ikon from Breville for under $200. It is pretty much double the price of the Compact Juice Fountain. Both are good quality juicers. As far as looks go, I personally prefer the more mature and stylish look of the BJE510XL. All the buttons and knobs have a high quality feel to them. When it comes to user friendliness, Breville juicers are very nice. Every part of this model, except the base unit, can safely go inside the dishwasher. The cleaning brush is really only needed for the filter basket where bits of pulp can get trapped in the tiny holes.
Since many of the parts are made of stainless steel, there is much less of an issue with staining than other plastic juicers. This should help with the longevity of the product. Even though it only comes with a one year warranty, the build quality of Breville juicers is excellent.
The point behind the variable speed is to help extract the maximum quantity of juice regardless of the type of produce that you use. In its price range, I would say that this is the best juicer for the money. In this video you can see just how easy it is to use this juicing appliance.
