The ikon® Juice Fountain Plus is the latest addition to Breville’s range of centrifugal juicers. Elegance and performance are combined with a host of innovative features.
A feed chute 25% larger in area than any available on the market to take bigger apples meaning more juice, less preparation and quicker clean up.
It has variable electronic speed functionality with an LCD display for optimising fruit types and juice yield.
The simple, clean geometric shapes integrate a diecast lock bar with single handed operation, stainless feed chute with knife, and a robust stainless steel body.
Why does the product represent design excellence and why do you believe it deserves an Australian International Design Award?
Tired of cutting up your apples?
With a 25% larger feed chute in area than any other, the Breville ikon® juicer has made it even easier to enjoy fresh juice. This patented feature lets you juice bigger produce than ever before, whole!
The larger stainless steel chute with integrated stainless knife has been designed to work in combination with Breville’s patented centralised feed chute geometry and high speed micro-mesh basket.
Variable speed functionality puts you in control.
The speed of the cutting blades during juicing affects the amount of froth produced and amount of juice extracted. To achieve optimal results, a wide range of speeds cater for different fruits and vegetables depending on their water content and hardness.
Breville’s strong patents force competitors to offset the feed chute from the centre of the cutting disc resulting in an unbalanced system. To avoid vibration problems our competitor units generally run at 4-8000rpm, half the speed of the Breville unit. At these speeds sticky fruits such as apples cannot be completely ejected from the filter mesh face which blocks the mesh and lowers the yield.
Available for the first time on any juicer, this juicer features a variable speed controller with a continuous range from 6,500rpm to 13,000rpm. The speed dial works in combination with an intuitive LCD displaying recommended fruit types at the selected speed to achieve maximum juice extraction with minimal froth.
Quiet, the kids are still sleeping!
Super quiet operation comes from special rubber motor mounts, a dual layer motor base housing with integrated cooling duct, and use of soft elastomer over-moulds on selected components isolate noise and suppresses vibration.
Designed for mass manufacture.
The control panel of the juicer is designed as a separate sub-assembly, housing the high tolerance PCB, safety micro-switch with offset spring arm, variable control dial and power switch. This enables functional testing before installation into the main housing.
The power switch and display position is such that a unique offset pivot was designed to maintain a centralised spring force for the lock bar. The motor and cord assembly are attached with quick connects to allow for easy after sales diagnostic analysis and servicing.
Modular product configuration for the world market.
We offer our global customers a range of options to tailor the juicer to specific market requirements and price points. The juicing lid is designed to take three sizes of feed chutes, depending on the countries’ approval requirements. The separate stainless steel chute construction provides this alternative with minimum requirement for new tooling and components. The main housing is designed to accommodate different motor sizes: incorporating an integrated magnetic speed sensing device for simple plug-in compatibility.
Understated style that blends in.
The small appliance is the last decision in how the kitchen looks. Some try to stand out, missing the consumers call for order and cleanliness. ikon® is made from simple, clean geometric shapes and finishes which blend with the modern kitchen they live in.
