Start your morning off right with freshly squeezed orange juice. With the Breville 800CPXL Citrus Press, nothing could be easier than juicing oranges. Cut your oranges in half and juice them, two simple steps are all it takes in order to enjoy true orange juice. With a motorized arm and a quiet motor, squeezing juice in the morning is near effortless and you will not disturb anyone in the house due to the sound of the machine. Nothing tastes better than a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice when starting the day off.
Once finished juicing your fruits, cleanup is a breeze. As with any juicer, remove the parts that actually touch the juice and rinse them off in the sink right after finished with juicing. I find it best to just wash these parts with soapy water and a sponge then and there, but they could be cleaned in a dishwasher. One part that can be troublesome is the top dome that pressed down on the citrus. In order to clean this in the sink, you would have to manually detach it from the juicer every time. Wiping it down with a soapy paper towel works well when cleaning it.
Treat this machine as a piece of art in the kitchen. With a stainless steel construction, the Breville Citrus Press is a real attention getter. Do not be ashamed of this appliance and attempt to hide it under the counter or in a cabinet when it is not in use. Take pride in this citrus press as you would with a piece of quality art. Truly this is one of the nicest looking appliances you could possibly own. When touching the machine as well, you will notice that it is made of true quality. While we may know that some blenders that have a plastic aesthetic are awesome appliances, most Vitamix blenders will simply not look anywhere as cool as the Breville Citrus Press. In order to keep your citrus press shining like new, wipe it down with a paper towel or microfiber cloth that has been soaking in distilled white vinegar once or twice a week.
Bring freshly squeezed citrus drinks to parties to amaze friends. I will be honest, when I bring vegan hors d’ouvres to parties I am not always well received by non-vegan party goers. When you are eating a healthy whole foods vegan diet, your taste buds will be different than the typical party guest on the SAD. However, fresh citrus juices always amaze everyone. My personal favorite recipe involves about 14 naval oranges squeezed into a 64 oz Vitamin container, a head of parsley, and frozen mango chunks. Blend all of that up and pour into some portable container (mason jars). I sort of get disappointed when people inevitably begin mixing this homemade healthy drink with their alcohol, but oh well.
There are a few issues with the juicing arm. For the first part, the juicing arm simply doesn’t feel as high of quality as the rest of the juicer. It would have been far better if Breville made the grip be stainless steel instead of the black rubber plastic style end. Also, I would have preferred if the design of the press arm was a straight post rather than being curved, the curved design seems sort of weak. Another issue with the arm of the Breville Citrus Press is that it actually swivels back and up, this takes up more space than you would expect. It can be an issue if your entire counter top space is only under cabinets.

Value For Money
The Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized Citrus Press is a great item to buy for anyone who wants to drink citrus juice in the morning, but doesn’t want to spend tons of time making the juice or running a loud motor that wakes up the entire house. Making juice is incredibly easy with this machine, and I like that it handles limes and lemons fairly well. For the added bonus of receiving an appliance that looks like something that could go in an art gallery, I give this juicer two thumbs up.
