Customer Reviews and Scores
The Breville 800CPXL is a good option for those who are not planning to juice anything but lemon, orange and grapefruit. It is very simple to use and clean. Although the motor is powerful, it runs smoothly and quietly. As of this writing, this citrus press has been reviewed by 316 customers and has received a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars.
The majority of the reviews are favorable. However, I would still like to point out some negative comments mentioned by a number of users to help you decide if this juicer is for you or if you need to look for another brand of citrus press. One nagging concern among users is that the machine stopped working after a while. Some users said “Well, the six month mark came yesterday, and it died. I juiced half of a lime, and when I put the other half in… nothing.
I guess the internal switch that activates the motor when one depresses the lever failed”, “It is a beautiful product but after a year of making juice daily for three adults it start skipping the rotor, I open it and find out that the gears were worn out” and
“My wife tried for 2 hours and the motor did NOT work”. Other users on the other hand didn’t encounter this problem.
Other reviewers are happy with the juicer’s performance and said “Best Citrus Juicer I’ve Found at this Price”, “Well made, solid, practical, & the term “work smarter not harder” applies here” and “This press is heavy duty and easy to use, and it extracts all the juice”.
Overall, the Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized Citrus Press is a fantastic juicer for those who want to make their own fresh citrus juice at home. It is a little heavy but that is due to the fact that the machine is made of die cast stainless steel. It works great and most users are very satisfied with their purchase and they recommend it to others.
