"One of the key features of the Breville 800CPXL is its impressive style."
The Breville 800CPXL is a highly-attractive, commercial standard motorized juice press. With its die-cast brushed stainless-steel exterior, it would make an impressive, professional addition to any kitchen. This top-quality juicer uses an innovatively designed cone which is uniquely finned and undulated, and industrial-level strength to create perfect juice for any occasion. Priced between $180 and $240, you would expect high standards from such a niche device, and Breville really delivers with the 800CPXL.
One of the key features of the Breville 800CPXL is its impressive style. You’d think this was an industrial-level juicer on face value as it has been constructed from die-cast stainless-steel. The steel is also brushed which always gives any device a sleek, stylish finish. The Breville logo has even been embossed into the main panel to further accentuate the elegance of this top-quality juicer. Even the spout has been integrated to create a smoother finish which is a very nice touch by Breville.
The only part on this top-quality juicer that has not been constructed from steel is the black soft-grip handle, but this is so it's comfortable to use. When the handle is vertical, the height of the Breville 800CPXL reaches a full 18-inches but don’t worry; this is the universal standard for kitchen cupboard height so it will still fit perfectly beneath them if that’s where you’d like to position it. This premium style juicer has a sturdy shape to reflect its impressive build quality, but it is still compact enough to be able to find space for it easily in your kitchen.
The Breville 800CPXL has industrial-level strength, so even though it is less versatile than the more complex centrifugal and masticating juicers, it does a fantastic job of exactly what it is supposed to do. This top-quality juicer focuses on pressing citrus fruits to create delicious juice that you can use in cooking or even just to create a fresh, natural and extremely healthy drink in the morning. The cone on the Breville 800CPXL is large enough to fit everything from a small lime to a large grapefruit, which is handy as it gives enough options to suit any palette.
This great-value juicer comes with some brilliantly innovative features too, such as two separate pulp filters which allows you to choose between juice that is extremely smooth, and juice which is a little more textured if that is what you prefer. The cone itself is uniquely finned and undulated for maximum extraction and the Breville 800CPXL, therefore, has an impressive juice yield. This is a great feature for saving money as it makes the most of each ingredient so you would need to use less overall.
Unfortunately, the Breville 800CPXL doesn’t make use of a reverse function and doesn’t have an additional process for pressing the pulp however, the juice it creates does have a 48-hour shelf life which is beneficial if you make a larger batch and don’t quite manage to finish it off. This device is only compatible with citrus fruits and only juices rather than having the ability to make smoothies and purees for example, like the more complex centrifugal and masticating juicers which are capable of creating lots of different products. However, you often find that when a machine has been designed specifically for one purpose, it does tend to excel at that specific function. This is certainly the case for the Breville 800CPXL.
Ease of Use
The steel which has been used to construct this great-value juicer is not only durable, meaning that this juicer will last a long time, but it is also rust-resistant and acid-resistant. These are crucial properties for a device that deals with citrus fruits, as they do have the ability to corrode some materials. All in all, the Breville 800CPXL has impressive longevity, and this is reflected in the fact Breville offer a 1-year warranty included in the price.
This top-quality juicer is also really easy to maintain as it has removable, dishwasher-safe parts which include everything that comes into contact with the fruit. Other handy features of the Breville 800CPXL include a drip-stop spout, so you don’t have to constantly clean up mess after each use, and useful cord storage in case you want to put the juicer away in a cupboard while it is not in use. Although, it does make such an impressive visual addition to any kitchen that it would be a shame to do so. Lastly, the Breville 800CPXL is extremely quiet which can make a real difference during those morning rushes when stress levels are running high.
All in all, motorized juicers are a great way to kickstart a healthy lifestyle. They are a brilliant way to make sure you’re getting your five a day, with the added benefit of this particular juicer being really easy to use and maintain too. The power-assisted handle makes this great-value juicer ideal if you have arthritis or just struggle generally with the effort of manual juicing, not to mention the speed. And the dishwasher-safe parts make cleaning this device a doddle. So, if you’re looking for a juicer that will give you top-notch juice with none of the hassle, the Breville 800CPXL is the juicer for you.
