It’s common knowledge that you’ll always get what you pay for. However, this saying does not apply to Bella (13694) High Power Juice Extractor. Despite being affordable, this product exceeded my expectations. It’s a capable juicer that can help you turn dense produce, citruses and leafy greens into a refreshing, nutrient-rich glass of goodness.
Breville Juice Fountain Plus is far more superior than this juicer, but this High Power Juice Maker can process exactly the same set of fruits and vegetables. Function-wise, it’s relatively similar which makes the Bella juicer a worthy rival. The Juice Fountain Plus is generally bigger, it comes with larger pulp bin and wider chute, but that’s all there is to it.
There’s just one downside to this fantastic product. It’s not BPA Free. If that’s a major concern, feel free to pick a BPA Free juicer.
If we forget that fact for a second, I can still say that you’ll get the best bang for your buck out of this centrifugal juicer; considering that its price is just plus or minus 50 dollars depending on the store, you’re getting it.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
Bella 13694 Juicer is very straightforward. You just need to assemble a total of seven parts to get those juices flowing. If you have an experience using a centrifugal juice extractor before, you won’t have any issues operating it.
Like popular high-speed juicers, it also features a 3-inch feeding chute. It’s wide enough to accommodate a whole apple and larger chunks of fruits and vegetables. Thus, you won’t need to spend a great deal of prep time.
Is it Easy to Clean?
In this aspect, I’m giving the Bella High Power Juice Extractor an average rating. Don’t get me wrong, this is true to all centrifugal juicers with a traditional mesh filter basket. This part requires a lot of attention due to pulp getting stuck to it.
Once you’re done getting rid of all those fibers, you can put it on the top rack of your dishwasher along with other detachable parts.
Pro tip: Place a biodegradable bag in the pulp bin. That’s one item off your long list of parts to wash.
In terms of juice quality, Bella High Power Juicer is also on the average spectrum. It’s good enough, but it’s sub-par in comparison to slow juice extractors. All thanks to its high RPM.
The rapid rotation mixes a considerable amount of oxygen into the juice, which causes the nutrients, minerals, and vitamins to break down. That’s why it only takes 24 hours for the juice (extracted from centrifugal juicers) to lose all its nutritional value.
What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice?
Dual-speed centrifugal juicing machine like Bella High Power Juicer can only take on dense produce and citrus fruits.
It’s going to work best on fruits and vegetables like beets, cauliflower, asparagus, bitter gourd, turmeric, cucumber, yakon, carrots, sweet potato, pumpkin, ginger, fennel, cilantro, pear, garlic, celery, pineapple, watermelon, pepper, broccoli, and apples.
And as well as citruses such as lemons, mandarin, tangerine, grapefruit, oranges, and lime.
High-speed electric juicers are not ideal for extracting juice from leafy greens. They are not as efficient as cold press juicers. However, you can still make green juices from this type of juicer by placing your leafy veggies in between produce with high water content.
