Breville Ikon Froojie Juicer - Detailed Benefits & Features 

  • Two discs for juicing different types of fruits - the breville Ikon Froojie Juicer is a dual disc machine: it comes with two stainless steel blade disks that are titanium reinforced for durability and maximum extraction- the Juice Disc is for preparing ordinary juices from fruits and vegetables - this disc removes the pulp from the juice so you'll get a clean juice drink.- the Froojie Disc & Insert is designed specifically for processing softer produce like bananas, mangoes, straberries, raspberries to make 100% natural smoothies, froojies, purees. You can also make sorbets, vegatble dips, sauces.

The Froojie disc leaves much of the pulp in the juice making it creamier and rich in fiber that is beneficial for the digestive system. When you use the Froojie Disc always set the machine on low speed ( level 1 or 2). Do not process hard fruits and/or vegetables with the Froojie disc because it can damge it.

  • ​Strong 1300-Watt motor/1.7 horsepower (spins at 6500-13000 rpm) operates the machine that carries 5-year warranty.
  • High-quality materials - the Breville Ikon Froojie Juicer is made of a combination of premium quality stainless steel and die cast: The cutting discs and the micro mesh filter basket are titanium reinforced stainless steel.
  • 5 speed settings - the small LCD screen on the side of the juicer and it indicates the speed level you set the juicer with the dial under the display screen. Always set the juicer on low speed (1 or 2) when juicing with the Froojie Disc. The pulp container includes a speed guide to help you select the right juicing speed.
  • ​ The On/Off switch is above the LCD screen. After 3 minutes, the LCD display will automatically turn off if the ‘On/Off’ switch is not turned ‘On’, or a speed is not selected.
  • Extra wide, stainless steel feed chute (84 mm, 3.25 ") lets you add whole produce or large chunks of it -it really acceleartes the juicig process since it reduces preparation time. When using the Froojie disc remove the skins and core from fruits before juicing. The unique central feed system ensures maximum juice extraction. The stabilizing knive centers the food over the dual-stage cutting system ensuring high juice yield.
  • Safety latch arms made of sturdy die-cast metal hold the juice lid securely attached to the bowl. When the safety locking arm is not locked into place on top of the juicer cover, the LCD display will illuminate and flash with an “L”, indicating that the safety locking arm should be locked into place.
  • Rubber feet on the base of the machine dampen noise and vibration and preevnt skidding.
  • ​Large (3 litre) pulp bin (plastic) - it attaches smoothly to the back of the juicer to catch the pulp (line the conatiner with a plastic bag to eliminate cleaning it). No need to use it when you juice with the Froojie disc.
  • ​1.2 litre juice jug with froth separator - if you prefer your juice with froth remove the lid before pouring the juice in a glass.
