The Oster FPSTJE9020-000 JusSimple is a 5 speed juicer with extra-wide feed chute. The 1000-watt machine measures 13.5 x 8 x 16.2 inches and weighs 9 pounds. For owners of juicers, it’s usually a centerpiece in their lives.
The small size means that you should have no problem finding a prime location on your counter for it. There are a bunch of juicers out there to choose from. I’ve researched this juicer and compared it to others. Check out the review below to determine if this is the right juicer for you.
EASY-TO-USE JUICER WITH EXTRA-WIDE CHUTE?
The Oster FPSTJE9020-000 JusSimple is a centrifugal juicer. Centrifugal juicers work by shredding the fruit and vegetables into a pulp, while the centrifugal motion pulls the liquid out of it. It has a 1000-watt motor giving it the power to churn through whatever you throw at it. Certainly, it can handle your juicing needs. This much is confirmed by customers.
Juicers with “extra-wide” chutes are getting popular. In fact, I’ve recently taken a look at another juicer that touted an extra-wide chute. It’s for good reason too, juicer owners want a juicer that requires less prep work and time to make their juices. The chute on the Oster FPSTJE9020-000 JusSimple juicer is large enough to fit an entire whole apple. This is a feature of convenience.
Although, you must consider, centrifugal juicers grind up everything and release the juice. If you put in an entire orange, including the skin, your juice will taste bitter. Seeds and skins of certain fruits may make your juice taste a little off-putting. So, you might still do some minimal prep work to remove them before juicing. Be mindful though, very small food items have been known to fly back out of the chute.
Some customers have said that this juicer isn’t very easy to use. I’ve come across words like convoluted to describe this juicer. Convenient appliances get used more often than the cumbersome ones. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like this juicer is very convenient.
Like with all centrifugal juicers, the Oster FPSTJE9020-000 has many parts that will need to be rinsed off or cleaned after use. While not the hardest thing to clean, multiple customers have stated that it isn’t easy to clean either. However, the mesh filter is said to be easy to clean; just rinse.
The base is made of stainless steel. The pitcher is large with a capacity of 32 ounces. The pulp collector is large as well. It has 5-speed settings.

vs Other Centrifugal Juicers
The Oster FPSTJE9020-000 JusSimple offers a low-cost alternative to many of the more expensive centrifugal juicers on the market. And overall, it seems to be an okay choice. But you might not be completely sold. It would be wise to consider other juicers on the market. Below, see what we think about the competition.
vs Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor
The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain is a juice extractor that’s been around the block a time or two. It has many many reviews. Many customers are satisfied with their purchase. It is slightly larger than the Oster FPSTJE9020-000, measuring 13-1/5 by 16-1/2 by 18-1/5 inches. It has 850-watts of juicing power, slightly less than the Oster but still powerful enough to satisfy your juicing needs.
I always consider aesthetics when I look for a new appliance. I know, looks aren’t the most important attribute to consider when looking for a juicer, but the Breville is definitely better looking.
The Breville has more convenient features, including a froth separator and a cleaning brush. Some customers have complained that the froth created when using the Oster FPSTJE9020-000 is stiff and thick. The froth separator on the Breville is a convenient feature that makes your juice more palatable.
All things being equal, if I were in the market for a juicer, I would probably choose the Breville JE98XL over the Oster.
The Oster FPSTJE9020-000 is a modestly priced juicer. I think you can achieve decent performance with this model. I trust that it is a decent juicer. But it isn’t the easiest machine to clean. And, it certainly won’t get you the best performance. If you want a juicer with more history and better performance, you can always go with another option, like the popular and proven Breville JE98XL.
