One of the most trusted manufacturers of juicers is Breville. Both are quality machines that will do the job, but hopefully this information will help you make a more informed decision.
When it comes down to it, these juicers are nearly identical. The key differences are simple and evident from outward appearances. The internal workings and how both produce juice is virtually identical as well. Those include:
- Material (Stainless steel vs high-grade polymer plastic)
The Breville Ikon has a heavy-duty 900 watt motor and features five speeds. Some reviews have commented that the high speed of the Juice Fountain Elite and Plus is too high while the low speed is too low. Having five speeds in a range from 6,500 rpm to 12,000 rpm can solve that dilemma
The multi-speed is a relatively quiet, low-vibration, sleek stainless steal machine, and it costs around $200, depending on where you purchase it.
- 5 speeds ranging from 6,500rpm to 12,500rpm for getting the maximum yield from soft fruits to hard vegetables.
- Stainless steel body
- Modern styling
- Between $150 and $200 (hover on links above. Adblock must be paused.)

Juice Fountain Plus
The Breville Juice Fountain Plus has a slightly less powerful engine at 850 watts and features two speeds. It also has a slightly smaller juice jug at 1 liter, but it still comes with all the safety features of the Ikon. The juicer itself is made of silver plastic with a stainless steel filter basket and blades. It costs around $150, again depending on where you purchase it.
Both the Juice Fountain Plus and the Ikon have an extra large feed chute, which means you can process large fruits and vegetables without pre-chopping them. Both juicers are also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning (except the food pusher).
- Low speed of 6,500rpm, high speed of 12,000rpm.
- Heavy grade polymer body
- Under $150
The Ikon is more stylish and slightly more functional with its variable speeds. The Plus is more affordable.
