About Breville BJE510XL Juicer

The uniquely designed juicing system features an extra-wide feed chute that is centered over the shredding disc.

This allows for more efficient juicing than systems that introduce ingredients on the side of the shredding disc.

The 3″ chute eliminates the need to pre-chop ingredients before feeding them into the juicer, saving you time.

Nutri Disc with titanium-reinforced blades shreds both hard and soft fruits and vegetables with ease.

The 900 watt, high-grade 5 speed motor features a built-in electronic smart chip that increases power to the cutting disc under heavy loads.

As a result, the filter extracts more juice and can make an 8 oz. glass in just 5 seconds.

  • Heavy-duty 900 watt motor with variable speed control from 6,500rpm to 12,000rpm: 5 speed selector with LCD juicing speed guide to help maximize juice extraction
  •  Patented extra-wide feed chute (3” wide): juice large fruits and vegetables with little to no cutting or preparation
  •  Patented direct central feed system for maximum juice extraction
  •  Nutri Disc with titanium reinforced cutting blades, which ensures the blades stay sharper for longer, and stainless steel mesh filter basket for spinning out the pulp
  •  Noise and vibration control: patented unique direct central feed system, which centers the chute over the Nutri Disc to minimize vibration and noise
  •  Heavy grade polymer body for durability
  •  Premium materials combining high grade stainless steel and die-cast alloy for durability. Stainless steel body, micromesh filter, cutters, and engineering-grade polymers
  •  1.2 liter juice jug with froth separator
  •  Large capacity pulp container with integrated handle
  •  Cord storage: the power cord wraps around feet and clips into position under the base for a reduced counter-top footprint
  • Safety Locking Arm prevents the juicer from operating without the cover locked into place
  • Overload protection prevents over-heating, automatically shutting the machine down when it senses that the machine is overloaded
  • All materials that come in contact with food are BPA-free, ensuring safe use

Benefits of owning a Breville BJE510XL Juicer

Fruit is largely composed of water, but its selling point is its nutritional value.

How do you extract the juice from fruit, without leaving the nutrients behind?

With Breville’s Nutri Disc and patented juicing system extracts more nutrients than other juicers and transfers less than 1.8F of heat to protect enzymes and maximize nutrient absorption of select nutrients.

Smart Home vs Dumb Home Revolution

smart home vs dumb home revolutionWe don’t see much on the surface – yet – but beneath us there’s pressure building to unsettle the million of people who live their happy lives.

Don’t worry it’s nothing bad but it will surprise you if your not ready for the smart home vs dumb home revolution that is coming. That’s right, I said Smart Home vs Dumb Home Revolution!

What will this revolution involve?

The smart home vs dumb home revolution will involve replacing most of our home appliances and electronics with new equipment that can be networked together and controlled with software installed on  our smartphone and tablet devices.

That’s right, your coffee maker will be controlled by an iPhone or Android app, and so will your washer and dryer.

Housing Market Tipping Point

What can I do to prepare my home? Most of us won’t do anything but there are already products available that can retrofit dumb homes if you ready want to get started.

I’ve also read about newer homes that are being built from ground up with smart home technology.

Home Automation System Demo Video – Control4 Smart Home Technology



Smart Home Technology is heating up and we”ll be there to cover this revolution…

Your turn to share your thought and comments on smart home vs dumb home…

The Age of The Home Automation System Has Arrived

smart home techJust like the industrial age changed our life by giving us the factory, automobile and airplane, the age of the home automation system will change our lives once again.

Welcome to the Smart Home Techy blog where we’ll be tracking and reporting on the smart home technology which will soon be common place in most homes.

These systems will control the many dumb appliances and devices we use daily, such as: coffee makers, microwaves, refrigerators, air conditioners, etc. This list is just a small example, there will be so many more items home automation will affect and many of them are still yet to be invented.

Smart Home vs Dumb Home Tipping Point

Last year, 2012, was the last year people will buy dumb products without considering their comparability to a larger home automation system. Think for a moment about all the televisions, stereos and other products that are cluttering our homes now that will need to be replaced?

The list is too great to include in this post but you probably get the point I’m making…

iOS, Android, Home Control Apps

I know I’m getting ahead of myself but I foresee 100’s of iPhone and Android apps to control every system in our home. These apps will also integrate into our automobile to give us more information than we’ll ever need, but somehow we won’t be able to live without this new technology. For example, your automobile xBox game system will connect to the internet just like it does at home.


I know this may sound too futuristic but I am telling you the future is here so be looking out for the home automation system to come to you home soon!
