Juice it Up! Our Breville Juicer

Posted on October 23, 2011


Yes, this week was a health-focused one. D and I purchased a Blendtec blenderand a Breville Juice Fountain Elite. We’ve been waiting quite some time for these appliances so I am thankful we were able to save up for them!

Do you need a high-speed blender and juicer for a healthy lifestyle? No, of course not! It’s a choice we made and are excited to have these new appliances in our kitchen.
I wasn’t expecting the juicer to arrive until next week but again, I was surprised when it came a mere three days after placing the order.
The juicer has a thicker manual than the Blendtec but there are a lot more moving parts. D had it up and together in no time, i.e. he did not read the manual 🙂
So pretty!
We went with apple juice as I’ve never tasted fresh apple juice.
Ready to fire up
The juice was delicious!

Making the juice is a breeze but cleaning takes more time – well, just the basket, really.
Here’s the culprit and its brush
D is continuing to experiment with easier ways to get squeaky clean but right now, it’s time consuming. We’re all ears if you have any suggestions!
I had promised to myself when I got a Blendtec or juicer, I would embark on another feasting journey. Not only did I start but D is joining in this time. We’re on our second day but that’s another post.
Happy and healthy weekend!
