The Breville BJS600XL (aka – the juice fountain crush) is the perfect masticating juicer for people that don’t have room to keep a horizontal juicer on the counter. This is an upright model that sits vertically to give you back the counter space you need to prepare all of the vegetables and fruit that you’ll be using in the juicing process.
Most of the masticating juicers on the marketplace resemble a meat grinder and take up a lot of space. This fountain crush unit sits vertically and works just as well or better than many of the horizontal slow juicers out there.
The Best Features Of The BJS600XL
- Ultra-quiet 240 W motor (You’ll be amazed by how quiet this thing is)
- It’s child proof (A two step safety start makes it impossible for most kids to figure out)
- Juices Wheatgrass (A very expensive and hard to juice superfood)
- Maximum yield without heat build-up (Low heat build up is key to preventing juice oxidation)
- Easy clean up (A cleaning brush is included)
- A Huge Juicing Jug (I hate small jugs that have to be transferred into larger containers.)
- Easy to move (The big handle and upright design make it easy to move around)
- 10 year motor warranty (Just in case)
So Quiet You’ll Wonder If It’s On
Instead of waking up the whole family on an early Saturday or Sunday morning to make yourself a glass of juice you can use this ultra-quiet model instead. Don’t let the lack of noise fool you though – this machine can stir up a juice that’s just as powerful and delicious as the bigger brute machines that are obnoxiously loud.
Your Children Are Safe From Accidents
As an added safety feature there is a 2-step safety start on this unit so that children and toddlers with little hands won’t be able to start the machine accidentally. According to a lot of reviews left by juicing enthusiasts with families, this feature is greatly appreciated.
Pulp As Dry As Cardboard Let’s You Know You Got All The Juice
The design of the auger and strength of the motor combine to completely wring out your fruits and vegetables. This is key, especially if you’re are buying organic or trying to juice the ultra hard to process wheatgrass.

This single auger juicer is able to chew up the produce with ease and you won’t have to worry about burning up the motor either. You’ll be surprised to see just how cool this machine runs, even with its powerful 240-motor.
A cool motor is an important feature of a juicer. If the motor heats up the juice it can actually start to break down some of the vitamins and minerals through a process call oxidation. Don’t worry about it. The Juice Fountain Crush is designed to keep that from happening.
Cleans Up In A Jiff
Once you’ve finished juicing it only takes a minute to disassemble the unit to give it a quick clean. You simply need to use the brush that’s included to clean out the filter and it usually only takes a few minutes at the most.

One of the few drawbacks is that the parts aren’t dishwasher safe. Fortunately, warm soap and water is all that you need as there aren’t cracks and crevices that you have to chase pulp out of.
Why It’s Impossible To Over Work The Motor
Don’t worry about over working the motor. If you jam some machines full with dry fibrous vegetables like broccoli,wheat grass, and kale they have a tendency to start over working the motor which causes it to burn out. The Breville BJS600xl has a sensor that will automatically stop once it gets overloaded.
Keeping The Whole Family Healthy
Make larger amounts so that you can get the most out of your juicing efforts. This unit can fill up 2 full glasses of juice at once so that you can double up on the juicing and spend less time preparing and more time sharing drinks.
This is one of the most versatile little juicers that you can find on the market. When you are looking for something more but don’t have a lot of space to put it in, this would be the perfect small appliance for you.
It also makes a great stepping stone for when you don’t have the budget to purchase a super high end commercial juicer, but don’t want to put your health at risk by having to wait until you have more money. This will give you nutritious the healthy juicy you need, that will to fit right into your busy lifestyle.
