So let’s see what we have uncovered in this Breville Elite vs Breville Ikon Juicer comparison:
When comparing Breville 800JEXL vs BJE510XL you will see that there is a big difference in prices between the two. But is it worth to spend those extra $100 dollars for the 800JEXL?
Well, that depends.
On our research for the Breville 800JEXL vs BJE510XL comparison, we have found that there are two main differences between the two and why the 800JEXL costs approximately $100 dollars more.
The two main differences reside in:
- Juice disc
- Motor design
- Juicing Speed
The first one is the fact that a Breville Elite 800JEXL Juicer has an ultra sharp titanium reinforced cutting disc while the Breville Ikon BJE510XL makes use of a stainless steel cutting disc. This is one of the differences between a Breville 800JEXL vs BJE510XL comparison.
The second part refers to its motor and it is certainly hard to know about that unless you call the Breville company directly – which we did!
What we have found out is that the 800JEXL has a new motor design with around 1.000 Watts worth of power while the BJE510XL has a 900 Watts motor. Both are great reliable motors which you shall not have a problem with either of them.
The main difference between the two is actually the speed options that you will have with each of them.
The difference between the 800JEXL and the BJE510XL is the fact that while the BJE51X0L have 5 different speeds (from 6,500 RPM up to 12,500 RPM) to choose from, the 800JEXL only has 2 different speeds (starting at the lower speed of 6,500 RPM and the higher speed of 13,000 RPM).
But how decisive is this!?
Honestly, not much. Again this will come down to a personal preference.
We have talked with a few of our readers and they have stated that they only use the high speed of their 800JEXL, so they don’t miss having 5 different speeds like the BJE510XL is able to offer. Take a look at what one of our customers said about this:
“I use the high speed for everything. Don’t see any need for two speeds, so why 5???
The 800 has a stainless steel bowl, more durable and easier to clean. Darn it , can’t find any faults!”
(H. W. K.)
To find out what are the speeds recommendation with regards to the juice that you will be making, please refer to page 14 of the 800JEXL manual and page 10 of the BJE510XL manual. Both can be found below.
Both are able to extract and process similar amount of juice regardless of its motor, so there is no need to worry about that. As for leafy greens, wheat grass and similars, both juicers are able to juice those, but you would be better off with a masticating juicer if that is your main concern. But using the lower speed of both these juicers should enable you to juice leafy greens and wheat grass without a problem.
When we compare the Breville BJE510XL vs 800JEXL one of the first things that will immediately get your attention is their design. While the 800JEXL is all made out of stainless steel, the BJE510XL have some plastic parts like at the top of the BJE510XL.
But does this necessarily makes the 800JEXL a better option!?
Not at all!
That will really come down to what kind of kitchen you have at home. We have stated many times here at FlowingHome that you should never buy any kitchen appliance or furniture based solely on the way it looks in the store or in a nice picture from the web.
What you need to do is to always consider the environment and the space where you will be using your chosen Breville juicer.
For example, if you have an old-fashion kitchen with many wooden cabinets, then we believe that the Breville BJE510XL is a better option since its looks will just fit better with your kitchen.
On the other hand, if you do have a new, modern kitchen, then you could certainly go for a Breville 800JEXL since it will look way better and it will nicely complement your kitchen’s design while the BJE510XL might fall behind.
Remember, always think about your own space before you decide on the right product for your kitchen. Bear in mind that we are not talking at this moment about the best prices for a Breville 800JEXL or the best prices for a Breville BJE510XL since this will be dealt with later on.
On talking with one of their sales representatives we inquired them about the differences between these two products and we openly stated that one of our main concerns for our clients was the limited warranty they had to offer.
You see, both these products will have a 1-3 years limited warranty and sometimes we believe that could’ve been better, especially when in comparison with other brands and products like an Omega J8006 and a Green Star GS-1000. That being said, we have not received complaints from our customers regarding the warranties of their products due to the outstanding quality of the Breville products which we offer here.
Please bear in mind that this is an unbiased review and we are stating here the facts before you. We are not trying to embellish and sell you any of these products right away. We just want to inform you as much as possible so you can make a better purchase decision for a centrifugal juicer that you feel comfortable with.
There are some other factors that caught our attention when analyzing the Breville 800JEXL vs Breville BJE510XL. Find below what more information we have found in our Breville Elite Juicer vs Breville Ikon Juicer comparison:
- Safety Locking Arm: We have found that the Breville BJE510XL safety locking arm is a bit easier to use when in comparison with the 800JEXL locking arm due to its ‘bulky’ size. It is not a big difference, but it is there and we thought we would let you know about that. Additionally, some people may find that the locking arm of the BJE510XL has a better feel and design when compared to the 800JEXL’s. We don’t think that to be true and we believe it will come down to personal preference.
- Size: in a Breville 800JEXL vs BJE510XL comparison, you will notice that the 800JEXL is a bit bigger and this might make a difference depending where and how you will be using your centrifugal juicer. If you have a tight kitchen and you need to make the most of each inch of your kitchen, then you might be better off with a BJE510XL since the 800JEXL has a longer feed chute and pusher. If you do have an ample space to place your juicer, then the increased size of the 800JEXL should not be a problem for you.
- Cleaning: both juicers are extremely easy to clean because most parts of both these juicers are dishwasher safe. You may check our Breville 800JEXL cleaning guide for a complete guide on how to clean your Elite 800JEXL juicer. The process is very similar in an Ikon BJE510XL juicer. You may refer to both manuals for furthers instructions.
As a comparison, the Ikon juicer measures 16 x 9 x 16 inches and weighs 16.8 pounds while the 800JEXL measures 17 x 11 x 20 inches and weighs 21 pounds. So you can easily see that the 800JEXL is indeed a bigger appliance and it also weights more than twice the weight of the BJE510XL. Please refer to the image attached below:
Regardless of which of these two centrifugal juicers you buy, you can rest assured that both the Breville BJE510XL and the Breville 800JEXL are certainly some of the best centrifugal juicers for sale and you will be making a great purchase!
That being said, we believe that if you have the budget for it, we recommend buying a Breville 800JEXL due to is ultra sharp titanium reinforced cutting disc, new powerful 1000 watts motor and outstanding stainless steel design.
The Breville BJE510XL might be a better option if:
- You have limited kitchen space and intend to place your centrifugal juicer under an upper kitchen cabinet;
- You are not a heavy user meaning, using your juicer more than 2 or 3 times per day;
- You are on a tight budget and would like to save some dollars while still having a great centrifugal juicer at home.
Again, we would like to remind you that if you took the time to plan and build a modern and elegant kitchen, then it would be wise to consider your choice of purchase when, especially picturing how it would look like in your kitchen.
But we know that this fact is not all that important for some people and in that case, then it would be better buying a BJE510XL and maybe use those extra dollars that you have saved on buying some nice juicing books like:
- “Complete Book of Juicing: Your Delicious Guide to Youthful Vitality” by Michael. T. Murray
- “The Big Book of Juices and Smoothies: 365 Natural Blends for Health and Vitality Every Day” by Natalie Savona.
- “The Juice Master: Turbo-Charge Your Life in 14 Days” by Jason Vale
