The Breville Die-Cast Citrus Press 800CPXL (*Est. $200) costs a pretty penny, and stands alone in the field of high-end electric juicers meant only for citrus. (You're more likely to find an all-purpose model that handles anything -- to a certain degree -- in this price range.) That said, it's also the most popular juicer of all those we evaluated. It even beats out the Breville Ikon Variable-Speed BJE510XL (*Est. $200), a very highly rated, all-purpose juicer, when it comes to the sheer volume of praise it attracts from reviewers.
The editors of Bon Appétit magazine characterize the Breville 800CPXL as "love at first squeeze," saying they very much like its interchangeable filter baskets, which allow you to choose between pulpy or pulp-free juice. Owners say the 800CPXL's combination of an electric reamer with a manual press makes juicing easy and fun, even if you have upper-body weakness. They also say that it works well with all sizes of fruit from small limes to large grapefruits; many lower-end models can only handle a limited range of citrus.
The Breville 800CPXL is very good at extracting every last drop of juice from your fruit -- another common complaint about other citrus juicers. However, if its high cost is an insurmountable hurdle, for one-tenth of the cost you can get a perfectly serviceable electric citrus juicer, the Black & Decker CitrusMate Plus CJ625 (*Est. $20). The Breville 800CPXL's advantages include its die-cast body better capable of handling frequent, high-volume juicing, and it's not finicky about how much pressure you apply. Owners say it's sturdy and stable, and, on the off chance you have a problem with your juicer, Breville's customer service is competent and friendly.
