One major advantage Breville Juice Fountain Cold Plus has over the very first iteration of juicers equipped with cold-spin technology is its space-saving design. Instead of the traditional horizontal configuration, it has an L-shape form to fit smaller counter spaces.
Apart from the L-shaped design, if you’ll take a look that the original Juice Fountain Cold[link], you’ll see a startling difference. Breville BJE530BSS is more refined and elegant.
In terms of performance, there’s no difference between the two. It’s just a matter of preference. If you like stainless steel but a more expensive juicer, go for the Plus. If you prefer a budget-friendly option, go for the classic model.
Or if you or your family have a massive appetite for nutrient-rich juices, you might want to go big by getting the Juice Fountain Cold XL.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
Centrifugal juicers are quite simple to operate. With Juice Fountain Cold Plus’ ultra-wide chute, your prep time will be significantly reduced. It can accommodate a whole apple, a whole carrot, celery stalks, or anything that can pass through its 3.5-inch opening. All it needs is a little help from the food pusher.
Is it Easy to Clean?
High-speed juicers are a tad difficult to maintain because of the following.
- They have huge parts, which can take some time to wash.
- The filter basket accumulates fibers and residue, which can build up if not taken care of right away.
On the positive side, most parts of Breville BJE530BSS are dishwasher safe, but please don’t skip running it under your faucet with warm water.
Dishwashers can damage plastic over time, so you’ll have to wash it manually every now and then.
To make things easier, you can line up the pulp bin with a biodegradable bag. Now, you don’t have to deal with the oversized pulp collector.
Breville claims that its proprietary Cold Spin Technology can extend the juice’s shelf life to 72 hours. If that’s true, it’s comparable to cold press juicers. The way Breville “achieved” this is through minimizing heat transfer by moving the spout above the cutting disk. This minor modification will keep heat transfer at less than 1.8°F.
However, I’ll take it with a grain of salt as heat only plays a small part in the breakdown of essential nutrients. Oxidation eclipses heat in the grand scheme of things, which is impossible to minimize in the case of high-speed juicing machines.
Still, cold press juicers have the edge when it comes to nutrient retention and juice extraction efficiency.
What Kinds of Produce Can It Juice?
Breville Juice Fountain Cold Plus will work best on dense produce, softer ones, and citruses. You can mix leafy greens along with water-rich fruits and vegetables like cucumber, apples, etc., but you shouldn’t juice green leafy vegetables all by itself.

The Breville Juice Fountain Cold Plus, or should I say the Juice Fountain Cold family are quite impressive, but I’m still not sold on the idea that it’s on par with cold press juicers. If we’ll keep the battleground to high-speed juicers, Breville Juice Fountain Cold, without a doubt, is on top of the food chain.
If you like things fast, then Juice Fountain Cold Plus could be your perfect match.
