Breville Big Squeeze

Breville Big Squeeze or the Breville BJS700SIL is the offspring of the company’s first slow juicer, or rather its replacement. If you’re looking for a Breville cold press juicer, this is your only choice.

What’s interesting about the Big Squeeze Juicer is its dual chute system. There’s a bigger 3-inch chute intended for whole apples and larger portions of fruits and vegetables and a smaller chute where longer items can fit, like 3-inch long sections of celery stalks.

Whole slow juicers are a new breed of juice extractors. They are the best juicers for celery juice. Apart from high level of nutrient retention, you won’t need to chop your celery stalks into small pieces.

While being efficient at extracting juice from celeries, the Breville Big Squeeze slow juicer is also great for any type of produce.

Pros

  • Compact design
  • The price is cheaper than other competing slow juicers
  • Dual chute; there’s a big one which can take 3-inch soft fruits and vegetables, and there’s a smaller one for fibrous produce and leafy greens
  • Juice yield is higher, producing dryer pulp compared to other Breville juicers
  • 72 hour juice shelf life
  • BPA free
  • Its self-cleaning system allows you to fill up the mixing bowl and completely rinse the machine out in-between juices.
  • It can process all types of produce such as soft fruits, hard produce, leafy greens, citrus fruits, soybeans and nuts.
  • Ultra quiet motor
  • This is the only Breville juice extractor which has a 10 year warranty.

Cons

  • Not dishwasher safe

I can’t think of any other disadvantage of this machine. It’s almost perfect.

Breville Big Squeeze Features

Is Breville BJS700SIL Easy to Use?

There are some unique steps that you need to follow when operating The Big Squeeze. It may overwhelm you at first but I bet it’s going to be a piece of cake the next time you use it. Be sure to read your manual when you assemble and use this juice extractor. Carefully following the steps will ensure a smooth juicing experience.

I mentioned above that this machine has two chutes. I’ll explain how to use it in a bit but I just wanted to add that in the context of usability, this feature adds some degree of difficulty to the user.

Is Breville BJS700SIL Easy to Clean?

The Big Squeeze Juicer requires some effort to clean. It’s not dishwasher safe like other juicer brands. However, constantly exposing plastic to harsh chemicals in the dishwasher can damage its integrity over time. The best way to clean your juicer is by washing it manually.

Juice Quality

The slow juicing process is the gold standard of juice quality. This masticating action along with the BJS700SIL’s BPA-free components guarantees a full-bodied flavor and a nutrient-rich juice every time you use it. You can even store your juice for 3 days if you’re planning to go on a juice fast.

What Kinds of Produce Can the Breville Big Squeeze Process?

This juice press can take all types of fruits and vegetables such as dense produce, soft fruits, leafy greens, citrus fruits, and nuts and beans (soaked overnight). There are just some special considerations to follow, which I’ll tell you in a bit.

Dense vegetables that are high in fiber such as carrots, beets, and spinach need to be cut to 2cm wide and 5cm long. There’s a separate smaller chute for this type of produce. The same thing goes for fibrous leafy greens. Following this instruction will maximize your juice yield and prevent damage to your juicer.

Though the chute is big enough for a whole apple, I don’t really suggest dumping it as is. It can cause a lot of stress to the plastic and it might break. The instruction manual says that soft ingredients such as apples, oranges, and tomatoes should be cut into 4 pieces before putting it in the feeding basket. On top of that, you’ll have to remove hard seeds or pits in fruits.

If you love making nut derived milk as a non-dairy substitute, this machine definitely delivers. It can help you make those milk alternatives provided that you’ll soak your nuts or beans overnight.

Last but not least, frozen fruits need to be slightly thawed before processing. Making smoothies out of frozen fruits is a big no-no for this juicer.

Verdict

The Breville Big Squeeze Juicer is a great contender in the cold press juicer space. It comes with lengthy warranty coverage and it gets the job done as any other slow juicer brands, plus it’s cheaper.

If you’re looking for a cold press juicer with a seal of quality from Breville, I highly recommend The Big Squeeze. It’s a great slow juicer that’s not going to squeeze your wallet.
