SYDNEY: Breville aims to put its Professional 800 Collection Juice Processor into the record books as the Guinness World Record fastest juice processor. The company ran a competition where a Sydney local created 1.2 litres of fruit juice in 31.47 seconds.

At a competition at Circular Quay last Friday, 30 members of the public lined up to win the title of ‘unofficial world’s fastest juicer’.

Competitors faced off in heats of five and juiced 1.2 litres of banana, strawberry and apple juice in the fastest possible time using the Professional 800 Collection Juice Processor. The fastest two juicers then competed one-on-one in the final.

In addition to the title, and chance to make the Guinness World Records list, the finalists were competing for a complete Professional 800 Collection kitchen appliance set. The second placegetter won the runner-up prize of a Professional 800 Collection Juice Processor.

Nathan Yip from Bondi, Sydney became Australia’s first ‘Fastest Juicer’ by winning the final in 31.47 seconds. His fastest time from the tournament will now be submitted to Guinness World Records for consideration for a potential new category of the world’s fastest juice processor.

To ensure that the record attempt was legitimate, there were official time keepers, a professional videographer, photographer, press in attendance, and official witnesses from Pan MacMillan Australia, the Australian Guinness World Records publishers.

Breville is now gathering all the event information, including images and video, to document it and submit it Guinness, for consideration as a new record category.
