You have already seen some of these articles like when we discussed if a Breville 800JEXL was a good choice to juice wheatgrass and leafy greens, if you could put ice cubes on your Breville BJE200XL and also if juicers are able to handle frozen fruits and vegetables. Now, we continue this serie with some common question about the great Breville Fountain Juicer Elite, also known as Breville 800JEXL.
If you would like to use your Breville 800JEXL to juice blackberries, then it is advised that you use your Elite juicer in its lowest speed setting (around 6,500 RPM). Additionally, it is also recommended that you clear your filter basket frequently during your juicing process to enhance your juicing performance.
You may find that a Breville BJE820XL would maybe be a better alternative due to its dual disc design. Unfortunately, this comes with a price: around $100 dollars more than a Elite 800JEXL.
While you can certainly juice blackberries with both the 800JEXL and the BJE820XL, maybe you would be better off with a masticating juicer like an Omega VRT350 HD or maybe an Omega J8006 Juicer since it would allow a higher and better volume of juice for berries in general and grapes.
Juicing nuts and seeds with a Breville 800JEXL (or any other of the Breville Fountain Juicers like a Breville BJE200XL Compact Juicer and a Breville BJE510XL Ikon Juicer) is certainly not recommended. Due to the way Breville juicers work – using centrifugal force to push fruits and vegetables against a strainer screen – juicing nuts and seeds is certainly not recommended.
If you do use your Elite Juicer for nuts and seeds, you might have:
- Seeds lodged in the blades which will impact negatively on the performance of your Breville 800JEXL. And …
- Making your 800JEXL cleaning process would become troublesome since you might end up with many seeds lodge in the blades making it difficult to remove them.
For the reasons described above, using a Breville 800JEXL Elite Juicer to juice nuts and seeds is not recommended.
