If you haven’t already,
Check Out Part 1: The Ultimate Guide To Fresh Juicing.
As you can read in part one, juicing with fresh fruit and vegetables has an amazing impact on your heath and energy. But there are so many dam juicers out there to choose from, and everyone claims to be “the best.”
This guide should help you understand a little bit more about what you need in a juicer.
When looking for a juicer there 4 main components I was looking for:
1) It needed to be easy to clean
I hate cleaning. The worst thing ever is cleaning your protein shaker out after a gym session. Scratch that, the worst thing ever is opening up a protein shaker that you forgot to clean the day after a gym session.
So why would I want to have to spend 15 minutes cleaning my juicer every morning. That’s a waste of my life.
2) It needed to be compact
My kitchen is not what I would call big. At all. I needed something compact that could fit in the corner of my counter and not be in the way of me enjoying my fruity pebbles.
3) It had be affordable
I’m not rich (yet..), so I needed a juicer that isn’t going to put me on edge of paying my rent.
4) It had to work!
I’m not gonna cheap out on a juicer that is more trouble than its worth. There’s no point in spending 100 dollars less just to have a broken juicer after a month, and then have to go and buy a good one anyway.
A little more money spent now, can save you a lot more money in the future.
And The Winner is..
After a lot of looking around we decided the winner is the Breville BJE200XL
1) Its easy as hell to clean
Watch the video below. This thing is easy to clean.
2) Its extremely compact, and it even looks good
3) It is under 100 bucks
$100 is not nothing, but when it comes to juicers, they can get expensive. Its not too cheap that I have to worry about it breaking, and its not too much that I’ll be super pissed if I stop using it in a year.
4) It is a top quality juicer
Breville is a brand you can trust. This juicer has hundreds of positive reviews on the web.
[quote]”As first time juicer I reviewed the top products and Breville was right up there and they back it up . A strong little machine that you have the control of making thousands of creations of your choice . Great product and price”[/quote]
[quote]”Makes juice fast and easily. As always, Breville products are well made and do a great job!”[/quote]
[quote]”This juicer accomplishes everything a person on a diet would need. Cram all your fruits, vegetables and other healthy food items you would not normally eat in its raw form, and mash it all together in a reasonably tasty, all liquid snack. Discard the dry food particles, rinse all pieces, and repeat. It may take some time to clean, but it’s definitely worth it considering you can spend $15 on a 12oz vegetable juice drink at your local grocery store. After about a week of using the juicer, the thing will start paying for itself.”[/quote]
The Breville BJE200XL in action:
This thing is a little beast! You can buy the Breville BJE200XL Juicer here.
Now if you know or think you will definitely be into juicing for the long run you can think about getting one of the even better models. Even though the 200XL above is fantastic and I am extemely happy with it, these models have a little bit extra to offer.
The next model up, The Breville BJE98XL has a lot of added benefits, check it out below.
1) A little more power to it.
2) All the pulp goes into a separate container that you can catch in a bag = even easier cleaning.

If you are really hardcore and see yourself as a big longtime juicer, you can splurge a little and get the next model up. The Breville BJE510XL. Like the 200XL and 98XL this thing is killer. I was extremely close to buying his one but I opted on the less expensive model.
Take a look at the video of the 510XL. Its a beast.
1) One of the most powerful juicers on the market
2) Has adjustable speeds. Gives you a greater juice yield.
3) Again, easier pulp cleaning, by using a plastic bad in the pulp catcher.

The point is you should definitely start juicing. For your health, your energy, and even your family.
