Freshly squeezed juice is a treat, but all too often we compromise. We may have shelves and shelves of all kinds of juice blends staring at us from our supermarket's shelf, but nothing quite beats the real thing. In fact, the mere existence of all those juice varieties is testament to the pure deliciousness of fruit and vegetable juice. While many store-bought juices are quite good, having juice at the press of a button is the best.

If speed and convenience are what you are looking for, bypass the juice aisle and consider a juicer. The Breville Juice Fountain Compact BJE200XL marries power and speed into one handy appliance. Literally at the touch of a button you could be enjoying a glass of your favorite juice in as little as 5 seconds. With specs that claim 10 times faster juice extraction along with an increase of 30 percent efficiency, this juicer aims to challenge packaged juices for convenience.

The 700-watt motor spins at a rate of 13,000rpm, delivering juice not only quickly, but also with little prep work. The 3-inch circular feed tube allows for uncut fruits and vegetables to be juiced with ease. The powerful cutter and filter system could even juice a pineapple with the rind on. The juicer is capable of producing 1.5 quarts of juice before the internal pulp collector would need to be emptied. The removable parts are all dishwasher safe while the whole unit measures a compact 9.5 inches by 8.75 inches and stands 16 inches tall.
