      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Too difficult to disassemble

      The Breville JE7 was given to me as a gift. I think it is in the lower price bracket for a fruit and vegetable juicer. It does do the job but it has a couple of shortcomings that make me unable to recommend it even at the low price point.

      It seems fairly sturdily constructed except for the two long handles at the sides which feel fairly flimsy as does the juice funnel with the integrated pulp container. It is certainly solid enough to sit firmly on the work surface. There is only one speed.

      The instructions are basic but adequate. The blades seem to be able to deal with most fruits and veg and have no problem with hard veg like beetroot. The pulp does come out a bit less dry than expected so I think some juice is going to waste.

      The good part is that this machine is very easy indeed to clean. There are no awkward corners to get gunk out of, a quick rinse and a wash is all it really needs.

      Which is a shame, because there is one major problem with this machine that I cannot work out and that is how to get the blades section out of the pulp container. It always comes out eventually, but I still, after a couple of weeks, have no idea at all what the trick is to getting it out, and I am afraid it does spoil the experience a bit, having to spend ages struggling. Maybe there is a trick to it, but this is simply bad design, and the manual gives no indication of how to do it easily.

      If it wasn't for this really major fault, I would rate this product more highly due to its low price and solid feel, as well as its ease of cleaning. However, I can see that after a while I am going to get sick of trying to get the blades out and have to buy a new one.

      In summary, cannot be recommended.

      Update: Still haven't really worked out how to take the blades after several weeks of use, but detaching the bottom section and wiggling it seems to help.
