Why I Recommend Breville Juicers for Orange Juice

I have used Breville Juicers for 10+ years. They are efficient, durable, and easy to use. Breville juicers are made for juicing oranges and other citrus fruits. Their citrus juicer models are specially designed for this purpose. They have a cone-shaped reamer. It fits perfectly into half an orange. You can juice the fruit with minimal effort. The reamer spins at a high speed to extract the maximum amount of juice from the fruit.

To get started, cut your oranges in half and place them cut-side down onto the juicer reamer. Apply light pressure while the reamer spins- there’s no need to push too hard. The Breville citrus juicer will do all the work for you. You’ll have a glass of bright orange, freshly squeezed juice in seconds.

The juicer parts are also very easy to clean. The reamer and mesh filter basket are top-rack dishwasher safe, so you can rinse them off and pop them in the dishwasher after juicing. The base wipes down easily with a damp cloth. You can also run water through the spout to flush out any excess pulp for a deep clean.

I highly recommend considering a Breville juicer. It is affordable and easy to use. The juicer makes light work of juicing oranges and other citrus. 

Their citrus juicers start at around $20 and will change how you enjoy orange juice forever. Take it from an experienced juicer – you won’t regret adding a Breville to your kitchen countertop!

Step-by-Step Guide to Juicing Oranges With a Breville Juicer

Step-by-Step Guide to Juicing Oranges With a Breville Juicer

I always turn to my trusty Breville juicer when I want fresh-squeezed orange juice. As a kitchen specialist, I’ve found it’s the best for extracting maximum juice from citrus fruits like oranges. Here’s my step-by-step process for juicing oranges with a Breville:

  • First, wash the oranges thoroughly to remove any dirt or residue. Even organic oranges should be washed before juicing.
  • Next, cut the oranges in half. I like to cut them horizontally, which gives the juicer blades more surface area to work with. Place the orange halves cut-side down on the juicer feed tube.
  • Turn on your Breville juicer and wait until the blade reaches full speed. Then, slowly drop the orange halves down the feed tube, one by one. For the best results, do not overload the feed tube. Allow each orange half to go through the juicer before adding another.
  • The Breville will automatically separate the juice from the pulp. The juice will flow from the spout into your glass or pitcher below. The pulp will collect in the pulp container. After juicing, strain the juice for pulp-free juice through a mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
  • To get the maximum amount of juice from your oranges, press down gently on the fruit with the juicer’s built-in plunger as it’s being juiced. It helps the spinning blade extract more of the juice.
  • Once done, turn off the juicer and disassemble the parts to clean. Rinse all parts with water to remove excess pulp and juice. Allow parts to air dry completely before storing.

With some practice, you’ll be whipping up pitchers of fresh-squeezed orange juice in no time. Your taste buds will thank you! Let me know if you have any other questions. I’m always here to help.

Tips for Getting the Most Juice Out of Your Oranges

I have learned some tricks as an experienced home juicer. These tricks help me get the most juice from oranges. Here are my top tips:

Tips for Getting the Most Juice Out of Your Oranges

1. Choose the Right Oranges

The variety and ripeness of the oranges you use can make a big difference in your juice yield. I prefer Valencia or navel oranges, which are juicy and sweet. Select oranges that feel heavy for their size. This usually means they’re juicy. Slightly soft oranges also tend to produce more juice than firm ones.

2. Roll and Room Temperature

Before juicing, roll the oranges on the counter with your palm to help break down the segments inside. This makes it easier for the juicer to extract the juice. Letting the oranges sit at room temperature for 30 minutes helps. Warm fruit gives up more juice than cold.

3. Alternate Orange Sizes

Feed whole oranges into the juicer chute, but alternate larger oranges with smaller ones. The smaller oranges will push the larger orange chunks through, resulting in more thorough juicing. I’ve found this method produces at least an extra 1/2 cup of juice per batch.

4. Push the Pulp

Once most of the orange has been juiced, extract the remaining pulp from the chute. Squeeze it over the juicer to free any trapped juice before disposing of it. The filter in your juicer is not completely efficient. This step saves valuable juice that would otherwise go to waste.

5. Strain the Juice

For the smoothest, pulp-free orange juice, strain the juice after juicing using a mesh strainer or cheesecloth. It will remove lingering pulp and seeds and give you an extra half cup or more pure liquid gold. Your patience will be rewarded!

By following these tips, you’ll turn your oranges into fresh-squeezed juice. Your taste buds-and your wallet-will thank you! Let me know if you have any other questions about home juicing. I’m always happy to share what I’ve learned.

What is the best way to store freshly squeezed orange juice for freshness?

Properly store fresh orange juice for maximum freshness and flavor. Here are some tips I’ve learned over the years

1. Keep it Cold

The enemy of fresh-squeezed orange juice is heat. As soon as you’re done juicing your oranges, refrigerate the juice immediately. This stops the oxidation process that can lead to loss of nutrients and changes in flavor. For best quality, drink the juice within 3 to 5 days.

2. Use an Airtight Container

Exposure to air is another culprit that can speed up spoilage. Pour your orange juice into an airtight container, like a glass jar or pitcher with an air-tight lid. This creates an oxygen-free environment that will keep your juice fresher for longer. If there is excess air in the container, the juice may develop a “stale” taste due to oxidation.

3. Avoid Light Exposure

Light, especially UV light, can have detrimental effects on orange juice over time. Store your juice in a dark area of the refrigerator away from the door. An opaque container can also help block light.

4. Don’t Dilute Until Ready to Drink

Do not add water or ice to your orange juice for the freshest taste until you are ready to drink it. Adding water introduces oxygen. Oxygen speeds up and runs nutrient concentration. Dilute and chill only what you plan to neume. Neume within 19.94 heure.

5. Consider Freezing for Long Term Storage

If you can’t drink all the juice within five days, consider freezing some of it for up to 6 months. To freeze, pour into airtight containers or ziplock freezer bags, leaving a little headspace for expansion. When ready to drink, simply thaw in the refrigerator overnight and give it a quick shake or stir before serving over ice. Homemade orange juice concentrate!

By following these tips, you’ll be enjoying your homemade orange juice’s bright, fresh taste for days to come. 

Final Say

That’s the basic process for juice oranges with a Breville juicer. As you can see, it’s quite simple once you get the hang of it. The key is using fresh, ripe oranges and not overloading the juicer. If you follow these tips, you’ll enjoy fresh-squeezed orange juice quickly. 

I hope this guide has inspired you to start juicing at home. It’s a great way to get more fruit into your diet and experiment in the kitchen. 

Happy juicing! Let me know if you have any other questions. I’m always here to share more of my kitchen adventures and expertise.
