We know that not all citrus fruit is created equal, so Breville designed a Citrus Press to maximize juice yield from all types of citrus, making juicing easier and more enjoyable.

Building on Breville’s renowned Citrus Press technology, the BCP600 Citrus Press takes advantage of modern, lightweight materials and new manufacturing processes to make Citrus Juicing faster, simpler and more enjoyable.

The lever handle requires less grip strength than conventional, hand-held reamers, increases leverage and reduces effort. As a result, juice can be produced up to 5 times faster, making it easier to prepare juice for your friends or family.

More juice, less fuss.

  • Breville has invented a unique Citrus Cone and Reamer, with undulating fins, to extract juice all the way to the rind, regardless of size. This makes our juicing cone effective for all citrus fruit sizes. In combination with our newly engineered, single-hinge, plastic arm, customers are offered reliability and strength usually reserved for more expensive die-cast parts. Composite plastics and FEA analysis have resulted in light-weight, yet sturdy construction, designed to withstand the rigors of daily use.

  • Citrus Juice is popular worldwide but there is little differentiation in juice extraction methods. A whisper quiet, easy cleaning and our lift-away juicing assembly makes juicing easier and more enjoyable. Efficiency and ease of use were key design criteria. Each fruit half is juiced in 4 seconds with minimal effort. When juicing is complete, simply close the drip stop spout, lower the main arm and remove the upper fruit dome. The upper fruit dome is designed with a magnetic locating mechanism, allowing easy removal and fixing for juicing. The whole juice collector assembly can then be removed and taken to the sink for a quick rinse or placed in the dishwasher.

  • Attention to detail in ergonomic design is demonstrated in the handle form, the easy loading of fruit, the mechanical advantage in the juicing action, the magnetic fixing of the fruit dome for cleaning, and the 2 position non-drip spout that opens to an easy-clean position. The product semantic is such that it can be used with no instruction.

  • The soft form in combination with vibrant colour focuses the user's attention on the product touch-points. While form does follow function, the BCP600 Citrus press takes further advantage of the modern Tritan co-polyester to create clear, glass-like parts; in the juice collector and citrus reamer; resistant to the aggressive wear and tear caused by citric acid, dishwasher testing and frequent use. These transparent parts lighten the form, highlighting the functionality of the pulp collector and add bold visual impact that enhances user experience.

    A key safety feature is the double switching system (patents pending). The movement of the arm is monitored to ensure the reamer does not spin when the fruit is loaded onto the stabilizing fins. As the arm moves down over the fruit a first stage switch is activated. A second switch then monitors when a specific force is applied to the reamer by the arm, allowing the fruit to be gripped in the dome before the reamer starts rotating. Rotation is a safe and whisper quiet 120rpm. The housing is designed to prevent fluid ingress. Cord storage underneath is also provided to ensure there is no

    The product has been life-tested to 40,000 cycles, and is fully serviceable. The high-torque motor is brushless and comes with a 5 year warranty. The juice collector and reamer cone are constructed from Tritan, highly durable, clear, co-polyester. The drip-stop spout and pulp filters are all stainless steel. All removable parts are dishwasher safe. Manufacture and assembly were also a key consideration during the design process. The design is tolerant to part variations and the assembly is simple. Simplification of fasteners and integration of features into the minimum number of parts ensured a simplified dis-assembly process.
