The Aicok Juicer Wide Mouth Juice Extractor is a centrifugal type juicer which means it processes juice fast. The downside of this is that heat and oxidation are introduced into the juice. Heat degrades some of the nutrients and oxidation decreases shelf life, you have to drink the juice as soon as possible after making it. Also, some centrifugal juicers are less efficient. More juice is left in the pulp than with other types of juicers such as slow masticating types.
The good news is that, according to the manufacturer, the Aicok Juicer Wide Mouth Juice Extractor extracts more juice (20% according to Amazon) and 30% more vitamins and minerals (according to Amazon). Unfortunately, they don’t say what it is compared to.
If you are not getting enough fruit and vegetable nutrient goodness into your diet, juicing is a great way to start. There are pros and cons to juicing, however. Read my article “How Is Juicing Healthy?” to learn more.
The Aicok Juicer Wide Mouth Juice Extractor has a 3″ (75 mm) wide feet chute which makes preparation much easier and less time-consuming than other juicers. You don’t have to spend a lot of time cutting fruits and vegetables into small pieces in order to feed the machine. However, if you have time, it is recommended to cut whole foods into smaller chunks for even better efficiency and quicker processing.
One confusing specification is the power rating. It is advertised on Amazon as 1000 watts, but the product description and packaging state 800 watts. For this review, I’m going to stick with 800 watts.
