The Breville Multi-Speed 900-Watt Juice Fountain is packed with the power I would expect from a mid to high-priced centrifugal juicer with the addition of several spectacular special features.
As always, it is my intention to walk you through the various features of this juicer in an attempt to discover if it is the juicer for which you have been searching. I know my own hunt for the perfect juicer lasted far longer than necessary and included a lot of trial and error. Luckily for me, those trials and errors were performed using other people’s juicers. Eventually, I figured out just what it was I was looking for. Unfortunately, that was in addition to exhaustion and I nearly lost my determination along the way. It is my hope that this article and the others on this website will make your own journey less frustrating than my own.
Packed With Power
Only one in an entire line of Breville Juice Fountain Juicers, this particular Juice Fountain is packed with 900 watts of power. For comparison sake, consider that the general range of motor wattages for centrifugal juicers is 600 to 1000 watts. This places a 900-watt motor near the top of its class.
A 900-watt motor isn’t necessary for juicing at low speeds and, therefore, is not a requirement for juicing soft foods such as bananas and oranges. Let’s face it, though, those of us who commit ourselves to a juicing lifestyle do so because we are looking to supplement our diets with nutrient-packed juices, and those juices need to be made up of more than just soft fruits and vegetables. Different fruits and vegetables offer us different types of vitamins and minerals. Therefore, it is important for us to pack as many different types of these foods into our juicing diets as possible.
Carrots are the base for many nutritious and balanced juices, but are so hard that they are difficult for a 600-watt juicer to handle. High speeds are required to break down hard fruits and vegetables with the rotating blades used by centrifugal juicers. Low wattage motors risk overheating and breaking down if they attempt to power a juicer’s blades to move at such high speeds for long periods of time. Thankfully, the 900-watt motor of this Juice Fountain isn’t likely to experience such difficulties; it is likely to stand the test of time at high speeds without overheating or malfunctioning.
