You can learn a lot about each juicer they make by browsing individual Breville juicer reviews. But what if you don’t know which one is best for you? After all, the price ranges from $99 to $499. Of course there are differences between them! This is where the comparative perspective comes into play. In this article, we will cover all seven Breville juicers and talk about their similarities and differences.

All seven models are made by the same company called Breville, an Australian manufacturer that has been on the market since 1932. All are very similar, with the exception of the last model on the list, the die-cast citrus press. This is very different from the others, so we will cover this very quickly.
The citrus juice is a manual juicer that only extracts citrus juice. Made from cast metal to withstand the acidity of many citrus fruits including grapefruit, orange, and lemon. There’s also a secondary press that requires less strength and makes squeezing citrus juice easier! The main downside of numerous consumer juicer reviews is that there is a piece of plastic under the press.
Now let’s take a look at the other Best Juicer Reviews in this series. The top four on the list are Compact, Plus, Icon, and Elite home juicers. These are the models most people prefer to purchase for making juice at home.
They are all centrifugal juicers (as opposed to ruminant, two wheeled, single wheel and auger juicers). In plain language, this means quick juicer (much faster than other types of juicers), but tends to heat up the juice more than other types. This is only an issue if you pay attention to the high temperature of the juice and the retention of enzymes. The colder the juice is heated, the more valuable and health-promoting enzymes are lost. If that’s the problem, consider a completely different type of juicer from another manufacturer.
The compact model has 750w motor and 850w motor, 900w icon motor and 1000w motor elite centrifugal juicer to meet industry standards. For centrifugal type, the higher the motor output, the better.
The first two in the series are compact and feature a plastic body with a satin silver finish that mimics stainless steel. Icon is an upgrade to stainless steel and a premium upgrade to die-cast metal. All the Breville juicers reviewed here look very attractive, but the silver finish of both sub models wears out over time.
Another difference is speed control. It is a compact single turn juicer. Plus offers 2 speeds, Icon offers 5 speeds, and Elite offers 2 speeds.
Which of these four juicers is best for testing? This compact is a great buy for your daily use juicer for $99. The $149 bonus is a pass due to consumer reports of engine fires. It makes more sense to upgrade to the $199 icon. For $299, the Elite and Titan slicing blades go into the juice realm. This option is for those who like to drink a lot of juice. Compact or Icon is suitable for most families.
How about the other two juicers?
Two plate juicer is a combination of juicer and blender, juicer and blender. Priced at $399, the Dual Disc features a durable die-cast body, 1200W motor, 5 rotational speeds and a titanium slicing disc. $499 Juice and Blend, released August 2010. The difference with the dual drive is that there are two separate top links that connect to the motor mount. One is a juicer and the other is a blender. They are basically two separate machines that share a common motor base. Juice and Blend also has 5 speed and titanium cutting discs. These two are for true juice and smoothie aficionados or chefs looking for custard in the kitchen!
