Breville BJE820XL Juicer.

Appearance and Size

While both products look very much similar in appearance, having a heavy grade die-cast metal body, the difference lies in their size. They are both shiny and attractive in appearance and might very well be mistaken for the other. The 800jexl measures 17 x 11 x 20 inches and the other is 8.5 x 13.5 x 17 inches in size.

Power and Performance

The 800jexl model is a 1000-watt juicer with a high and low speed control of 13,000 RPM and 6,500 RPM respectively. While the bje820xl is about 1200 watts with 5 different speeds that range from 6,500rpm to 13,000 RPM. In this category the bje820xl offers a better and more powerful performance.

Both of the juicers have a 3″ circular feed tube that can process whole fruits, adding to their ease of use. They also have a centered dual knife blade and a stabilizing knife. The bje820xl also has a second cutting disc that works well to make smoothies and purees.

Both models are equipped with patented Breville “Nutridisc”, this ensures that very little heat is transferred during the juicing process. This is very important as heat degrades nutrients.

Both products are easy to use based on the customer reviews. They are also comparatively quiet, unlike the loud whirring juicers we have often seen. They also come with a retractable cord that can be wrapped back in and clips into position at the base.

Cutting Disc

Both of the models are made of stainless steel micromesh filter and a titanium-plated cutting disk. The bje820xl model also has a stainless steel puree disc.

Since both the cutting discs are same, their durability is also the same.

The mesh filter in both juicers can be easily cleaned and no residue is left at the end.

Pulp

The 800jexl model and the bje820xl models both have a pulp container. Some customers complain that the vegetables or fruits are not squeezed properly so the pulp is mostly fruits and vegetables looking neatly sliced. But it is no hassle to eject the container and clean it.

Each comes with a juicing pitcher, a separate pulp container and a manual as well recipe book is also included. All parts are dishwasher safe and the best part is that all parts fit together rather than through screws and nuts so can be easily separated and washed.

Customer Reviews…

Breville 80JEXL

I noticed that there a lot of customers that compare this juicer favorably to their previous juicer. Well, that makes sense, first time juicers don’t usually invest in the highest quality juicer. Some customers really expressed their satisfaction with the performance of this little centrifugal juicer, it seems to be able to handle all sorts of fruits and vegetables with few issues, according to customer reports.

There seemed to be an appreciation for the large feed chute, you don’t have to chop your produce into little bits. It also appears to be easy to use and clean. The quality of the construction gets high marks as well. But it isn’t all good with this machine (or any other for that matter). Some complaints that stood out to me included: messy, inefficient, noisy. Well, you can expect any machine to have its share of complaints. Still, there are many satisfied customers who love this juicer.

Breville BJE820XL

The Breville BJE820XL gets praise for its power. The 1200-watt motor gets the respect that it deserves. It is reported to pulverize anything that is put in it. It also gets compliments for its looks. A number of customers report that cleanup, including drying, disassembly takes just a few minutes. The extra-large 3.5-inch chute is appreciated as well (larger than the 800jexl).

As to be expected, some customers reported problems, however. Of the complaints one of the more serious ones seems to be the efficiency or, as reported by some customers, the lack thereof. Other complaints include that it is too large, but that is relative to amount of space that you have available in your kitchen. Despite some concerns, I still believe that this is a quality machine.

Summary & Recommendation

In the Breville 800jexl vs bje820xl, there is a clear winner, in my opinion. The bje820xl is the better buy. It is more powerful with 1200-watts, compared to 1000-watts for the 800jexl. It has 5 speeds which gives you a wider range of flexibility when juicing. In the looks department, it’s dead even in my opinion. Both have the same 1-year warranty. Either way you go, you can’t really make a “wrong” choice here.
