Can you put a whole apple in a Breville juicer?

You will be able to save more time or juice faster if you can put your whole apple in your juicer. Especially when you juice lots of apples.

Breville has different types of juicers eg centrifugal, masticating, citrus, Bluicer.

you can put most apple variants as a whole in a Breville’s juicer that has the size of the feed chute at least 3 inches in diameter.

As apple size can vary from 2 to 4 inches. average apple size is around 3 to 3.5inch in diameter.

Breville’s centrifugal, Bluicer and a few masticating juicers feed chute size is around 3 inches in diameter and that is more than enough to juice a normal apple without chopping.

The maximum size of apple a Breville centrifugal juicer or Bluicer can handle is 3.5 inches. and one of the masticating juicer models, the Breville Big Squeeze, can handle an apple size of 3-inch diameter max.

What is chute size?

Related questions

Do I need to peel apples before juicing

whether to keep the skin of your apple, depends on your own preference, nutrition value, taste.

Apple juice taste will be sweeter if you choose to take take the skin off.

apple nutrition (less vitamin C and dietary fiber) is more near to its skin than other parts. you will get less nutrition if you remove the peels/skin of your apple before juicing.

but it’s better to take the skin off if your apples are not organically produced.


is it safe to juice whole apples including the seeds

yes, it’s safe to juice the whole apple with seeds.

apple seed contains cyanide, which is a poisonous chemical for humans. but to kill someone, you need lots of crushed seeds to ingest.

which is unlikely, as adults will need to ingest crushed 150 to thousand apple seeds depending on the apple variety you are using for the juicing.

regular apple has only 8 seeds.
