I have been contemplating getting my “juice savvy on” for quite some time. I have always loved fresh, raw fruit and vegetables and know the importance of incorporating these into your diet. Needless to say I jumped at the opportunity to review the Breville Juice Fountain Cold. Not only does it look cool, I had fresh juice right at my fingertips for days!
Definition of Juicing/Extracting Juice
First things first, what is juicing? Juicing basically refers to taking a whole fruit or vegetable and putting it through a process which extracts the juice from the fresh produce. The Juice Fountain Cold uses cold spin technology to process the fruit and vegetables, without damaging them with heat which preserves nutrients and vitamins. If you are still not sure what the difference is between juicing and blending, read this.
Components and Putting your machine together
The Juice Fountain consists of quite a few componets, which seem complicated initially but once you have built your fountain a couple of times it comes as second nature.
Processing your Fruit and Veg Using the Juice Fountain;
The Seal and Store Juice jug can be stored directly in the door of your refrigerator and its sealed lid keeps juice fresher for longer. Juice can be kept fresh for up to 3 days.
Large juice jugs and pulp collection cup makes it easier to juice large amounts for later storage.
Heat and processing can damage vitamins and minerals found in fruits and vegetables. Cold Spin Technology ensures juice is extracted without heating up the machine which results in less damage to nutrients.
A powerful 850-watt motor generating up to 13,000 rpm processing speeds the juicing up. The large feed chute means you can juice whole fruits and vegetables without pre-cutting, reducing prep and clean-up time.
The juicer comes with a nozzle attachment so you can juice straight into a glass and includes a brush for clean-up.
