Breville bje510xl Centrifugal Juicer
Size and Appearance
The Breville 800jexl measures 17 x 11 x 20 inches while the smaller Breville bje510xl measures 19.2 x 15.5 x 10.3 inches. Either one takes up quite a bit of space for a small kitchen appliance that serves just one function. I’m a fan of appliances that have multiple functions because we have limited counter space. But, if you plan on juicing a lot, the size might not be an issue.
As it relates to the juicers themselves; their dimensions aren’t so different that it would influence your purchase decision either way. Both should fit underneath your kitchen cabinet with ease.
If you’ve read any other Breville related post on this site, then you know that I am a big fan of the look and design of Breville products. Both juicers in this comparison are very good looking machines clad in stainless steel (not that all stainless steel products are aesthetically pleasing).
It may not be the most important aspect of a product but I think that appearance is important. I’ve come across several customers who tuck away their ugly appliances when they have guest. Personally, I think that ugly appliances get used less often.

Ease of Use
According to customer reviews and the product description, it appears that both juicers are easy to use and clean. Although juicers aren’t the easiest things to clean, the Breville brand makes juicers that can be disassembled easily. Both also come with a cleaning brush and most parts are dishwasher safe.
Power and Performance
Both juicers in the Breville 800jexl vs bje510xl are of the centrifugal variety. They spin at very high speeds and so have powerful and durable motors. The Breville 800jexl is the more powerful of the two machines. It has a motor that is powered with 1000 watts which translates into a RPM range of 6500 to 13000. On the other hand, the Breville bje510xl, has a 900 watt motor with an RPM range of 6500 to 12500.
I don’t think that the difference in RPM’s will cause a noticeable increase in performance. Sure, you might juice a little faster with the 800jexl, but I don’t think it should really influence your purchase decision.
The Breville bje510xl has five speed settings while the 800jexl has just two. More speed settings means that have more control over the texture and efficiency of your juice. For example, soft fruits require a lower speed than a carrot to maximize juice extraction.

Cutting Disc, Feed Tube & Stainless Steel Mesh Filter
The cutting disc of both machines are very durable and plated in titanium. The feeding tube for both juicers is three inches wide. This means that you don’t have to do a lot of pre-chopping prior to juicing. In fact, you will be able to put insert whole fruit. The fine stainless steel mesh means that you will end up with a very smooth juice.
Price and Warranty
Both Breville juicers come with a one year warranty.
