Breville's the Juice Fountain Compact is designed to take up less space, yet perform like other juicers. This 700 watt juicer has a centered dual knife blade assembly that works to stabilize processing fruit and vegetables. The stainless steel cutting disc surrounded by Italian made micro mesh filter extracts up to 30% more juice and 40% more vitamins and minerals than other juicers. The unique extra wide chute feed, measuring 3", allows you to juice whole fruits and vegetables without pre-cutting, and the juice jug features an integrated froth separator for more juice, less froth. For added protection, the juicer will not operate without the cover in place and safety locking arm in place in the vertical operating position.
