Breville recommends safety first

We at Breville are very safety conscious. We design and manufacture consumer products with the safety of you, our valued customer, foremost in mind. In addition, we ask that you exercise a degree of care when using any electrical appliance and adhere to the following precautions:

Important safeguards

Read all instructions

Remove and safely discard any packaging material or promotional labels before using the Juice Fountain™ Elite for the first time.

Do not touch the small cutting blades in the base of the stainless steel filter basket.

To eliminate a choking hazard for young children, remove and safely discard the protective cover fitted to the power plug of this appliance.

Do not place the Juice Fountain™ Elite near the edge of a counter-top or table during operation. Ensure that the surface is level, clean and free of water, food, etc. Vibration during operation may cause the appliance to move.

Any significant spillage onto the surface under or around the appliance, or onto the appliance itself, should be cleaned and dried before continuing to use the appliance.

Do not place the Juice Fountain™ Elite on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or where it could touch a heated oven.

Always ensure the Juice Fountain™ Elite is properly assembled before use. The appliance will not operate unless properly assembled.

Do not use the Juice Fountain™ Elite on a sink drain board.

Do not leave the Juice Fountain™ Elite unattended when in use.

Always ensure the Juice Fountain™ Elite is turned off by positioning the switch in the off position and unplug the cord. Make sure the stainless steel filter basket has stopped rotating and the motor has completely stopped before releasing the safety locking arm and/or attempting

to move the appliance, when the Juice Fountain™ Elite is not in use, and before disassembling, cleaning and storing.

Do not operate the appliance continuously with hard fruits and vegetables for more than 10 seconds. Allow the motor to rest for 1 minute between each use.

Do not juice stone fruit unless pits have been removed.

Regularly inspect the supply cord, plug and actual appliance for any damage. If found damaged in any way, immediately cease use of the appliance and call Breville Consumer Service Center.

Recipes in this instruction book are not considered a heavy load. However, hard fruits and vegetables will put excess strain onto the motor if a low speed is selected. Please refer to the juicing guide to determine the correct speed for the fruits and vegetables selected for juicing.

Keep hands, fingers, hair, clothing as well as spatulas and other utensils away from the appliance during operation.

Do not push food into the feed chute with your fingers or other utensils. Always use the food pusher provided. Do not place hand or fingers into the food chute when it is attached to the appliance.


Breville recommends safety first


Fully unwind the power cord before use.

Do not let the power cord hang over the edge of a counter-top, touch hot surfaces or become knotted.

To protect against electric shock do not immerse the power cord, power plug or appliance in water or any other liquid.

The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

This appliance is for household use only. Do not use this appliance for anything other than its intended use. Do not use in moving vehicles or boats. Do not use outdoors. Misuse may cause injury.

Do not use the Juice Fountain™ Elite for anything other than food and/or beverage preparation.

Keep the appliance clean. Refer to care and cleaning section.

Remove rind from all citrus fruit before juicing.


Extra wide feed chute. Do not place hands or foreign objects down feed chute. Always use the food pusher provided.


Your Breville appliance is fitted with a short power supply cord as a safety precaution to prevent personal injury or property damage resulting from pulling, tripping or becoming entangled with a longer cord. Do not allow children to use or be near this appliance without close adult supervision. Longer detachable power strips or extension cords are not recommended but may be used if care is exercised. If an extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of

the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally and (3) the extension cord must include a 3-prong grounding plug. Be careful when handling the stainless steel filter basket as the small cutting blades at the base of the filter basket are very sharp. Mishandling may cause injury.


Your Breville appliance comes with a unique Assist™ Plug, conveniently designed with

a finger hole in the power plug for easy and safe removal from the wall outlet. For safety reasons it is recommended you plug your Breville appliance directly into its own electrical outlet on a dedicated circuit separate from other appliances. If the electric circuit is overloaded with other

appliances, your appliance may not function properly. Use in conjunction with a power

strip or extension cord is not recommended.

1.Wash your selection of fruit and vegetables ready for juicing.


Most fruit and vegetables such as apples, carrots and cucumbers will not need to be cut to size as these will fit into the feed chute whole. When juicing carrots place the tip of the carrot into the feed chute last.

2.Ensure the Juice Fountain™ Elite is correctly assembled. Ensure the Stainless Steel Filter is thoroughly

cleaned before each use. Ensure you place the Juice Jug under spout before commencing juicing.

3.Plug the power cord into a 110 or 120V power outlet. Flip the two-speed switch either up for low speed or down for high speed depending on the type of fruit

or vegetable being juiced and the unit will automatically start. Use the speed selector table as a guide for juicing different fruits and vegetables.

4.With the motor running, place food into the Feed Chute. Using the Food Pusher, gently guide food down the Feed Chute. To extract the maximum amount of juice, always push the Food Pusher down slowly.

5.Juice will flow into the Juice Jug and the separated pulp will accumulate in the Pulp Container.



The Pulp Container can be emptied during juicing by turning the Juicer OFF and then carefully removing the Pulp Container. (Replace empty Pulp Container before continuing to juice). Do not allow the Pulp Container to overfill as this may prevent correct operation or damage the unit.


To minimize clean up, place a produce bag into the Pulp Container to collect the pulp.

Overload Protection Button

The Breville Juice Fountain™ Elite is fitted with a safety device which safeguards against overheating with excessive loads. If this occurs, the Juice Fountain™ Elite will automatically activate the overload

protection button and the unit will turn itself off. If this occurs unplug the Juicer from

the power outlet and allow the unit to cool. Then press the Overload Protection Button found on the bottom of the Motor Base. The safety device will then be reset and the Juice Fountain™ Elite is ready for use again.

Never use fingers to push food down the feed chute or clear the feed chute. Always use food pusher provided.

Always ensure that the Breville Juice Fountain™ Elite is turned off. Remove the plug from the power outlet before cleaning, disassembling or assembling and storing the appliance.

Follow these instructions to clean all surfaces of parts that come into contact with food during normal use.

For easy cleaning – immediately after each use rinse removable parts under running water (to remove wet pulp).

Allow parts to air dry.

After disassembling the unit all removable parts may be washed in hot soapy water.

The Juice Fountain™ Elite Cover, Filter Bowl Surround, Pulp Container, Nutri Disc™ and Juice Jug are dishwasher safe (top rack only).

Wipe the Motor Base with a damp cloth.

For consistent juicing results always ensure that the Nutri Disc™ is thoroughly cleaned using the supplied nylon brush. Using the nylon washing brush, hold the Nutri Disc™ under running water and brush from the inside of the basket, hold it up towards a light to ensure the fine mesh holes are not blocked. If the holes are blocked soak the Nutri Disc™ in hot water with 10% lemon juice to loosen the blocked holes. Alternatively wash the Nutri Disc™ in the dishwasher.

Do not soak the Nutri Disc™ in bleach.

Always treat the Nutri Disc™ with care as it can be easily damaged.



Discoloration of the plastic may occur with brightly colored fruit and vegetables. To help prevent this, wash parts immediately after use. If discoloration does occur, the plastic parts can be soaked in water with 10% lemon juice or they can be cleaned with a non abrasive cleaner.


To assist with cleaning, soak the Nutri Disc™ in hot soapy water for approximately 10 minutes immediately after juicing is completed. If pulp is left to dry on

the filter it may clog the fine pores of the filter mesh thereby lessening the effectiveness of the Juicer. For your convenience a nylon cleaning brush has been included with your Juice Fountain™ Elite.


To minimize cleaning, line the pulp container with a produce bag to collect the pulp. Pulp can then be used for other dishes, or as compost for the garden or discarded.

PAgeTips onheaderjuicing.....



Although juice drinks are usually developed with flavor, texture and aroma at the forefront, the health benefits certainly add to the pleasurable taste experience. Up to 70% of the nutrient content of fruit and vegetables is found in the juice. Liquids extracted from fresh fruit and vegetables form an important part of a well balanced diet. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are

an easy to make source of vitamins and minerals. Juices are rapidly absorbed into the blood stream therefore being the quickest way in which the body can digest

nutrients. When you make your own juices, you have complete control over what you include in them. You select the ingredients and decide if you need to use sugar, salt or

other flavoring agents.


Always wash fruit and vegetables before juicing.

Always use fresh fruit and vegetables for juicing.

To save money and obtain fresher produce, purchase fruit or vegetables that are in season.

Keep your fruit and vegetables ready for juicing by washing them before storing.

Most fruits and hardier type vegetables can be stored at room temperature. The more delicate and perishable items such as tomatoes, berries, leafy greens, celery, cucumbers and herbs should be stored in the refrigerator until required.

preparation of fruit and vegetables

If using fruits with hard or inedible skins such as mangoes, melons or pineapple, always peel before juicing.

Citrus fruit can be juiced in the juicer if peeled first.

All fruits with pits, hard seeds or stones such as nectarines, peaches, mangoes, apricots, plums and cherries must be pitted before juicing.

A small amount of lemon juice can be added to apple juice to prohibit browning.


Your juicer makes invigorating, frothy orange juice. Simply peel the oranges and juice. (It is best to refrigerate oranges before juicing).

The right technique

When juicing a variety of ingredients with varying textures, start with the softer textured ingredients on low-speed then change to high speed for harder

texture ingredients.

If you are juicing herbs, sprouts or leafy green vegetables either wrap them together to form a bundle or juice them in the middle of a combination of ingredients on lowspeed to obtain the best extraction.


PAgeTips onheaderjuicing.....


If juicing herbs or leafy green vegetables on their own, the juice yield will be low due to the nature of centrifugal juicing, it is advised to juice them as with a combination of other fruit and vegetables.

All fruit and vegetables produce different amounts of liquids. This varies within the same group i.e. one batch of tomatoes can produce more juice than another batch.

Since juice recipes are not exact, the precise quantities of any juice are not crucial to the success of a particular mixture.


To extract the maximum amount of juice always push the Food Pusher down slowly.


It is easy to create great tasting juice. If you have been making your own vegetable and fruit juices, then you know how simple it is to invent new combinations. Taste, color, texture and ingredient preferences are a personal thing. Just think of some of your favorite flavors and foods – would they work well together or would they clash. Some bold flavors could over power the more subtle flavors of others. It is however, a good rule of thumb is to combine starchy, pulpy ingredients with those high in moisture.


The remaining pulp left after juicing fruit or vegetables is mostly fiber and cellulose which, like the juice, contains vital nutrients necessary for the daily diet and can be used in many ways. However, like the juice, pulp should be used that day to avoid loss of vitamins. Some of the uses of pulp are

to bulk out rissoles, thicken casseroles or soups or in the case of fruit, simply placed in a bowl topped with meringue and bake for a simple dessert. Apart from the consumption use, pulp is great used in the garden for compost.


When using the pulp, there may be some pieces of fruit or vegetables remaining. These should be removed before using the pulp in any recipes.
