The Breville Citrus Press and Citrus Press Pro are great juicers for those wanting to only juice citrus. Citrus juicers like these Breville devices are specifically designed to ream every last ounce of juice from citrus fruits. And these Breville citrus juicers do just that!

Breville Citrus Press vs Citrus Press Pro

The Pro and standard versions are exactly the same except for two features: the dome and the handle. The metal-finned dome is the part that holds the fruit in place and extracts the juice. The handle is used to squeeze the fruit down onto the dome.

The pro version has an acid resistant die-cast metal-finned dome. The standard version utilizes uses a BPA-free plastic dome. Whether you go with the pro or standard model, our testing shows the units producing the same amount of juice.

The die-cast metal will hold up better over time. But if you go with the plastic version, it’s likely the handle or motor will wear out before the dome needs replacing.

The Breville Citrus Press Pro contains a soft grip handle and a die-cast metal dome. The standard version loses the soft grip handle and opts for a BPA-free plastic dome.

Review of the Breville Citrus Press

Now that know the difference between the pro and standard models, let’s look closer at the features, functions, and overall quality of both units.

The Breville Citrus Press is Easy to Use

Juicing citrus is extremely fast:

  1. Start by plugging in the device and turning the device on
  2. Cut in half any citrus fruit you wish to juice
  3. Insert the fruit face down onto the dome
  4. Gently press the handle down onto the fruit (see warning below)
  5. The citrus press will automatically engage and juice the fruit

The entire process will take only a few seconds. In less than a minute, you can extract enough juice to fill an entire cup with fresh, non-manufactured orange juice!

Warning

Do not press down too hard on the handle or it can crack!

Extremely Efficient

The citrus press is an extremely efficient citrus juicer. Just insert the citrus half onto the dome and lightly press down on the handle. In just a few seconds, the rotating dome extracts all the delicious juice from your fruit.

There won’t be any more juice to squeeze out once it is finished.

Dripless Spout

Let me tell you about the spout. Specifically, let me tell you about why I both love and hate it.

The spout, as a feature, is both simple and ingenious. By flipping it up you won’t have to worry about those last few drops of juice dripping out onto your countertop after you remove your catch glass.

However, the spout is secured by metal pins into a plastic housing. We have doubts about the longevity of such as design.

To maximize the lifespan of your spout, be gentle when using it!

Breville Citrus Press Motorized Juicer

Breville Citrus Press Motorized Juicer

$149.95 ($9.37 / Ounce)

Just like the Citrus Press Pro, but without the die-cast juicing dome and soft grip handle. The plastic dome won't last as long as the die-cast metal version. But it's likely something else will fail on the unit before the plastic dome shows meaningful wear. This is a viable option if you are shopping on a budget.

Pros:
  • Fast & Easy to Use
  • Easy to Clean
  • Extremely Efficient
  • Drip Stopping Spout
  • Quiet
  • Easy to Assemble
  • Easily Juices All Sizes of Citrus
Cons:
  • Handle may crack if you apply way too much pressure
  • Mounting pins for spout are secured in a plastic component, leading us to worry about its lifespan
