Breville JE98XL Review

A centrifugal juicer has the base, including the motor, blade, and chute. Then there is a jug that attaches to the side. Dimensions will vary depending on the shape but the average size is approximately 14 x 10 x 8 inches. The average weight of a juicer will be around 13lbs.

The Breville BJE430SIL

This juicer is14.5 x 10.5 x 17.6 inches, so slightly bigger. However, it does only weigh 11lbs- handy for moving it.

The Breville JE98XL

The dimensions are 16.5 x 13.2 x 18.2 inches, significantly larger and you need to bear this in mind when thinking about storing your juicer. It weighs 12.7lbs, not much more than the average.

The winner is- The BJE430SIL

Breville BJE430SIL vs JE98XL: Power and Speed

Breville JE98XL Function

The more power a juicer has, the more efficiently it will slice and chop the fruit and vegetables. Most centrifugal juicers have between 240w and 350w. When looking at the speed in which the blade rotates, you will find anything from 6000rpm to 13000 rpm. The faster your blade spins, the quicker it will chop the food.

At 850w this machine will have no problems powering through harder food. On the low setting, you have 6500rpm and the high setting 13000rpm. It really is a super efficient juicer.

The Breville JE98XL

It has a little bit less power than the Breville BJE430SIL, 800w. This is still a lot more than other juicers. When used on the low setting there is 6500rpm. The high speed is 12000rpm.

The pulp container is extra large with a capacity of 3.6qt. The jug holds 70floz with a seal and store function. The juice will last up to 3 days in the fridge.

Aside from things like cleaning brushes and storage bags, the juicer can be advertised as “noise reducing”. Perhaps the machine is an easy-assemble or it has modern technology installed.

The Breville BJE430SIL

Pros:

  • The extra large pulp container and 70floz jug
  • The spin technology so your juice is nice and cold
  • Powerful and faster than the average juicer

  • It would be nice to see an overload protection feature

The Breville JE98XL

Pros:

  • Speed and power still above the market average
  • LED Overload Protection
  • The juice will last up to 24 hours without steal and store feature

Cons:

  • The pulp container and the jug are a lot smaller than on BJE430SIL

The Final Verdict

We prefer BJE430SIL, although both juicers work incredibly efficiently. The BJE430SIL had some features that made it stand out more. The extra large pulp container was a real winning feature, so was the seal and store. They mean lots of juice and kept for longer. What we really fell in love with was the fact that the juice was super cool once it was poured.
