The Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL (BJE830BSS) is large. It has an extra large feeding chute of 3.5 inches, extra large pitcher which can hold up to 70 fl.oz., and a massive bin for collecting pulp. You can juice an entire apple in about 4 seconds!
The Bottom Line
The Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL minimizes heat transfer to the juice, prolonging its shelf life. Its large chute means minimal prep work. You can juice entire cucumbers, apples, and carrots in seconds. Being a centrifugal juicer, it isn't best for hard vegetables or leafy greens. But if you want juice fast and with minimal prep work, it is a great option.

Pulp & Juice Yield
The Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL is a fast, centrifugal juicer. These types of juicers are as efficient as slower, masticating juicers. This is especially true for hard, root vegetables and leafy greens.
As a centrifugal juicer, The Juice Fountain Cold XL is fast but not as efficient as slow juicers. This is especially true when it comes to juicing root vegetables and leafy greens.
In a squeeze test, you can wring additional juice out of the slightly moist pulp that remains after being juiced.

Just take a look at it, it’s a beautiful piece of kitchen equipment. Breville is slowly moving away from its horizontal architecture. It’s embracing the space-saving L-shape design.
Moving on to its capabilities, Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL is indeed a plus size. It has an extra large feeding chute of about 3.5 inches, extra large pitcher which can hold up to 70 fl.oz., and a massive bin for collecting pulp.
In my previous review about the very first juice fountain cold, I’ve explained the Cold Spin Technology. It’s just a fancy word for positioning the spout above the cutting disk away from the heat source, thus minimizing heat transfer.
The company claims that this technology along with its complimentary semi-airtight juice jug (under certain conditions) prolongs the shelf life of the juice to 72 hours. It is a big deal since juice extracted from centrifugal juicers typical last for just 24 hours.
Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL Features
Is Breville BJE830BSS easy to use?
The Breville Juice Fountain Cold lineup is unique. These are the only fast juice extractors in the market that can offer 72-hour shelf life. If you want to take advantage of that, you need to pay attention to the manual. It’s not that complicated, but it will require a little bit of precaution. One of that is to make sure that your produce is fresh and clean. Then, maintain the temperature at a certain level. In short, you need to put your juice in the refrigerator immediately.
I’d like to note that this particular juicer has an extra-large feeding chute. It can accommodate a whole apple and even a whole carrot. This will cut your preparation time significantly.
Is the Breville XL Juicer easy to clean?
All the detachable parts but the food pusher are dishwasher safe. It comes with big parts, but most of it can go into your dishwasher. As with all high-speed juicers, you need to be extra careful when cleaning the mesh-blade assembly. You can further minimize your clean up time by placing a biodegradable bag into the pulp container.
The Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL claims to offer 72-hour juice shelf life. Its proprietary Cold Spin Technology paved the way for this breakthrough. According to laboratory tests commissioned by Breville in Australia, the amount of heat transferred to the juice is insignificant.
Here’s a fact, though: apart from the heat, high-speed juicers like Breville BJE830BSS spins at thousands of RPM. Unless this happens in a vacuum, this process incorporates a lot of oxygen into the juice.
Oxygen is the main catalyst of oxidation. Under normal juicing conditions, oxidation will occur and at a significant rate as far as high-speed juicers are involved.
Based on this analysis, slow juice extractors are still the king in terms of juice quality. This is my humble opinion, so you need to take that with a grain of salt.
To sum it up, the Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL surpasses all the high-speed juicers when it comes to nutrient retention but still doesn’t come close to cold press juicers.
We’re all aware of the importance of staying hydrated throughout the day, and cold-pressed juice can be a helpful tool. Since fresh juice is mostly water, it can be used to meet your daily hydration needs.
Because juice is more flavorful than water, some people prefer the taste and find it easier to drink more liquids with juice than plain water. However, be careful of replacing your entire water intake with juice, especially if you juice a lot of fruit. The sugar in juice, although natural, acts like added sugar in the body because the fiber has been stripped away.

Is Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL worth it?
After over 100 juice reviews, the 72-hour juice shelf life from a centrifugal juicing machine sounds too good to be true. As I’ve mentioned above, high RPM is still the biggest factor as far as oxidation is concerned.
If you’re in the market for a good centrifugal juicer, Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL is definitely the best in its class. However, if you’re looking at it as a slow juicer machine alternative, I doubt this product can compete in the context of juice quality and nutrient retention.
