Breville Juice Fountain Cold is the brand’s answer to the low shelf life of juice extracted from centrifugal juicers. It comes equipped with their proprietary Cold Spin Technology and Elevated Juicing System.

Normally, juice coming from high-speed juice extractors only last for 24 hours but Breville BJE430SIL overcame this limitation. The kitchen equipment juggernaut claims that your juice can last for three days with this innovation.

But how?

Your standard high-speed juicer collects the juice at the base of the chamber, close to the motor. Prolong usage may cause this area to build up heat.

This degrades the quality of the juice along with other external factors such as exposure to light and oxidation.

With the Cold Spin Technology, the juice doesn’t touch the base of the juicing chamber at all. It flows up leading to the spout, thus reducing heat exposure. In a temperature test, we noticed that the juice increased a total of 3°F, which is not zero, but considered negligible.

The Elevated Juicing System further preserves the quality of the juice by slightly positioning the spout above the cutting disk and through its unique juice jug design.

Apart from collecting the juice, it’s also a great (semi-airtight) pitcher. This can come in handy when you’re preparing for a 3-day juice cleanse.

Now let’s get back to the details.

This electric juicer is quite similar to Breville JE98XL which has a dual-speed setting and it also comes with a standard 3-inch wide feeding chute.

The difference lies in the larger pulp container and the new technology that keeps nutrients, minerals, and enzymes alive in your juice.

Breville Juice Fountain Cold Features

The Breville Juice Fountain Cold has a number of features that make it a great pick for a centrifugal juicer.

3 Inch Wide Chute

If I had to pick my favorite feature of the Breville Juice Fountain Cold, it would be the wide chute! Wide chutes are one of the things Breville Juicers are known for.

On this model, the chute is “only” 3 inches wide. While not as wide as the chute on the Pro or XL model, it’s still one of the widest in the industry.

When Breville says, “prep less, juice more,” they mean it!

3 inches

Slip On Juice Nozzle

Needing to juice a lot of produce? Leave off the nozzle and the juice flows directly into the large pitcher.

Need to juice a little? Slip on the rubberized nozzle, turn it down, and direct the juice into a single-serve glass. This saves you from having to wash an entire pitcher if all you need is a little fresh orange juice!


Cold Extraction System

Breville’s Cold Extraction System only increases the temperature of the juice by about 3 degrees, which isn’t enough to cause damage to the juice’s nutritional value.

This is a much better performance versus most centrifugal juicers, which impart a lot of heat into the juice. Many believe heat damages the nutritional content of the juice. It certainly harms the juice’s flavor. But with the Breville system, you don’t have to worry about either!


Is Breville BJE430SIL easy to use?

This fast juicer is a breeze for those with little time in the morning. Most oversized produce, like apples or cucumbers, will not need to be cut before juicing. Just make sure to wash them and remove the stems or leaves, etc.

This juicer is easy to assemble. Before juicing, you will have to snap the safety arm into position; otherwise the machine will not turn on. That’s one of the great things about this system: the parts snap into place. If they don’t, the parts aren’t aligned properly.

Juice Fountain Cold is loud once you begin juicing; about 98 decibels. But it only takes a couple of minutes to complete the entire process. Place your items into the feed chute and use the food pusher to lightly push them through the cutting disc. It is a gentle process to feed the produce through the juicer.

When juicing greens, it is a good idea to either tightly roll them or wrap them around something hard, like a cucumber. After a couple of minutes, everything should be complete, and you can enjoy your freshly prepared juice.

Important Pro Tip

Always, always have the food pusher or your hand over the chute when juicing produce. if you don’t, shredded produce will escape the juicer and and spew all over your kitchen.

Is Breville BJE430SIL easy to clean?

Almost everything on the Breville BJE430SIL is dishwasher safe, but only on the standard setting. The only exceptions are the juice cover, juice jug, and sealing lid. These must be washed by hand, rinsed, and set out to dry.

Rinsing and placing everything in the top rack of the dishwasher literally takes about 30 seconds.

Take the cleaning brush and scrub the pulp out of the stainless steel micromesh filter basket before placing it into the top rack of the dishwasher. Be mindful of the sharp blades.

The juicer base can be wiped down with a clean rag. When you have more time, take advantage and wash everything by hand as that is always recommended to help extend the life of your juicer parts and accessories.

You can also minimize cleaning by placing a biodegradable bag into the pulp container to catch the pulp.

Juice Quality

The new technologies that Breville introduced in this juicing machine are geared toward prolonging the shelf life of your juice and improving the juice quality overall.

Since centrifugal juicer’s inception the low shelf life was a bit of an issue for most including me and to date I would still prefer a masticating juicer over a centrifugal one.

However, this improvement caught my attention, I was so interested in the Cold Spin Technology and the Elevated Juicing System Breville was raving about.

Since it’s a high speed juicer, oxidation is still at significant levels and they won’t be able to change that. To extend the shelf life of the juice from 24 hours to 72 hours, they thought of a way for it to be stored right away.

You’ll notice that the juice jug of Breville BJE430SIL looks like a standard pitcher. Once you finished extracting 70 fl. oz of highly nutritious juice, just twist the lid of the juice jug, then store it in the refrigerator.

This will help you preserve all the nutrients, enzymes, and minerals in your juice for about 72 hours.

Don’t Forget

Cold-pressed juices can definitely help increase your intake of important micronutrients, but keep in mind that they’re best consumed in addition to (not as a replacement for) a balanced, fiber-rich diet.

What kinds of produce can Breville Juice Fountain Cold Juicer process?

This juice extractor will work best on dense produce, soft fruits and citrus fruits.

Dense produce includes bitter gourd, pineapple, broccoli, pumpkin, cauliflower, watermelon, garlic, pear, sweet potato, beets, ginger, apple, cucumber, celery, pepper, turmeric, yakon, carrots, fennel, cilantro and asparagus.

Citrus fruits include lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, mandarin, lime and orange.

Using a low speed setting can process soft fruits such as grapes, blackberry, mango, papaya, pomegranate, strawberry, melon, avocado, tomato, cranberries, peach and kiwifruit to make a puree.

Can it juice leafy greens and nuts?

The short answer is no, centrifugal juicers are not efficient for juicing green leafy vegetables, let alone making soy and almond milk.

Thus, it’s not advisable for juicing any of the following—collard greens, cabbage, peppermint, kale, romaine lettuce, beet greens, spinach, dandelion greens, parsley, pine tree needles, wheatgrass, basil, lettuce, spring onion, brussels sprout and moringa.

If you really want to juice greens with your juice fountain cold, process it along with hard fruits and vegetables.

Some even suggest to place it between hard produce like a sandwich or roll it in bundles but that won’t yield as much juice as cold press juicers.

Is Breville Juice Fountain Cold worth it?

The ultimate selling point of this juicer is the 72 hour juice shelf life making it one of the best juicers for fruits and vegetables. However, it shares the same weakness with high speed juicers, it doesn’t work that much for leafy greens but if your juicing routine consists mainly of fruits and dense produce then this shouldn’t be an issue.

The price tag on it is lower than many of the other fast juicing machines out there, which makes it attractive to those looking for a budget friendly machine. The only real complaint surrounding the Breville juicers is the one-year limited product warranty.

If you are looking for a centrifugal juice extractor, that isn’t going to break the bank, yet still delivers delicious and nutritious juice, then you might want to check the Breville Juice Fountain Cold Juicer.
