Click the image or “Continue Reading” button to learn more in my detailed review of this quiet, easy to use cold press juicer.

Why Juice?

The US food guide recommends plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole grain foods in your daily diet balanced with protein. The new Canadian food guide increases emphasis on fruits and vegetables over whole grains. Here is a link to the USDA Food Guide Pyramid.

How do you get more vegetables and fruit into your diet?

One way that many people have found helpful is to turn to juicing.

Why juice at home?

The healthiest juice is homemade because packaged juice has additional ingredients that you don’t want in your healthy diet. Things like sugar and chemicals that enhance the color, increase the shelf life, and homogenize the juice.

Read the label on your store-bought juice sometime and see if you can pronounce some of the added ingredients. If you don’t know what they are do you really want to drink them?

What is the healthiest way to make juice at home?

Centrifugal juicers are faster than masticating juicers. However, the rapidly spinning blades of centrifugal juicers introduce oxygen and heat into the juice. The oxygen reacts with and breaks down enzymes and vitamins. And heat speeds up this chemical reaction. The result is that the nutritional value of the juice starts to decay almost immediately.

Slow masticating cold press juicers are much healthier because the slow speed avoids oxidation and heat. Juice made this way stays fresh longer, tastes better, and keeps its nutritional value even when stored for several days.

Is juicing good for you?

Juicing does have a couple of concerns among health experts.

Although no sugar is added to your homemade juice, pure fruit juice is naturally high in sugar. If you are diabetic or obese, drinking fruit juice is not good for you. Drink vegetable juice, with some fruit to sweeten it, if you like, to avoid the high sugar drinks.

The other concern is that separating the pulp from the juice takes fiber out of your diet. As long as you include fiber in your meals this isn’t a major problem. Just be aware that you aren’t getting all the entire benefit of the fruit or veggie by juicing. Eating the whole apple, carrot or whatever is healthier for you in many ways.


Aicook Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer – Overview

The Aicook Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer rotates at a very slow speed. The slow, chewing action of the auger produces the highest nutritional value of the juice.

More juice is made and the pulp is drier. There is very little froth and almost no heat so enzymes and vitamins are not lost.

All kinds of fruits and vegetables can be juiced. Leafy greens, wheatgrass, celery, ginger, carrot, apples, oranges, and more are no problem.

Dry pulp left over from the juicing process is a good indication that the most juice is being extracted from the produce. The Aicook Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer makes very dry pulp.

Don’t waste the pulp, it is great in salads, soups, tea, veggie burgers, mixed in baked goods, dehydrated for snacks, and can be also be composted into excellent fertilizer.

You will love this Aicook Juicer. It is quiet and easy to clean. Assembly and disassembly is quick and all parts, except the motor base, can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

Note about Aicook: There is some confusion about Aicook vs Aicok. They are different companies both owned by the same parent company, Changchun Chengji Technology CO., LTD., based in Shenzhen, China. They are not knock-offs of each other but their products are very similar so I’m not sure why there are two companies making the same things.

  1. You’re providing a good education for me.  I was unaware of the nutritional benefits of masticating over centrifugal juicers.  With the video and your explanations, the process and operation are pretty clear with this product. One thing that puts me off buying a masticating juicer is the long period of time that you need to manually insert the ingredients.  Also, having lived in China for 17 years and done the import/export business for a portion of it, I have skepticism about the quality and durability of a non-name brand Chinese product.  I have bought several centrifugal blenders from China over the years, granted they were cheaper models, but they didn’t hold up.  I think I would investigate some other brands before buying.  Thanks a lot.

    Best regards,

    Joe

    1. Agreed, Chinese products standing the test of time is always an issue although I have had been fortunate with some products still in my kitchen after many years and working fine on a daily basis.

      However, I will always point out any products made in China by not well known manufacturers. And my rating will reflect a deduction for this fact.

      For the time being I will rate the Aicook Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer as above but continue to monitor comments and reviews, as I do with all products on my website. If negative customer comments start showing up with increasing failure rates above the norm I will lower the rating and Buy recommendation. Hopefully, that isn’t the case.

      Meanwhile, for other brands have a look at my post, The Best Juicers For 2018.

  2. Thank you, Ed, for sharing your Aicook Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer Review. I just recently purchased an instant pot for cooking and now in the market for a decent juicer. This is differently a convenient way to add more fruits and vegetables to my diet. I believe the Canadian food guide is right.When mankind was created by God, all we ate was fruits and vegetables. It wasn’t until after the flood that the animals became afraid of man. Remember, we lived longer and healthier lives. Methuselah, he lives to be 969 years old. And then came the flood.After the great flood, our eating habits changed. So that is why I need a juicer because I inherited some of our ancestors’ traits.Drinking vegetable juice is the way to go for me. And homemade is the best. But sometimes it can jam up the blender so the reverse function on the cold press juicer is going to be nice to try out.I like learning something new every day. Masticating and centrifugal juicer are what I learned today. I now know the difference. Thank you, if I have a question I will contact you. ~LeNard

  3. Hi Ed, 

    Thanks for this great review. I currently have a centrifugal juicer and while it says that it only heats the juice 0.5 degrees, the pulp is still quite damp which tells me I’m not getting as much juice out as I could. I’ve been thinking about investing in a masticating juicer for a while and this one does look good. 

    I was really interested to learn also that Canada is putting more emphasis on fruit and veg over grains! I am a holistic health coach from the UK and I totally agree with that. There are lots of carbohydrates in fruit and veg and most people don’t eat enough and rely too heavily on grains, especially refined ones. 

    I can attest to not wasting the pulp – I process mine with soaked seeds and spices and dehydrate into raw crackers to have with soup. So delicious. This also alleviates any concerns people have about not getting the fibre from the fruit and veg. You are still eating it, just at a different time to the juice!

    On the point about sugar content in juice, I recommend to my clients to juice 90% veg and 10% fruit. Many veggies like carrots and beetroot are sweet anyway. Green juice should be mainly cucumber and celery, with dark leafy greens like kale, spinach, parsley etc and a little green apple, ginger and lime if desired. Super yummy!

    Keep up the good work!

    Warmest wishes,

    Natalie.

  4. Hello

    I’ve never had a masticating type juicer.

    Since this is a ‘little known manufacturer’, is there a warrantee? I would be interested to know how well it test over even just a few months.

    The noise of a centrifugal-type was, I thought, endurable was its was fast, and the large chute was great…not a lot of cutting.

    I would, however, expect masticating types to handle small items and herbal additions easier. Is this true?

    Cheers,

    1. Hi Dave,

      Thanks for the great questions. 

      Yes, there is a very good warranty of 2-years (Amazon ad states 3-years but Aicoo.cc website says 24 months. It also has a 30-day money back guarantee. However, if you are returning it simply because you don’t like it you will have to pay the return shipping cost.

      Masticating juicers handle small items just as easily as centrifugal but with more efficiency and less heat. Herbs, green leafy vegetables, and things like wheatgrass are more difficult for some masticating juicers. The way around this is to sandwich these type of ingredients in between harder ones.

      The Aicook Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer handles all types of fruit and vegetables well.

      Hope this answers your queries.

  5. I used to use a juicer years ago when my kids were little. I loved it, but I hated the cleanup. It almost didn’t seem worth all the trouble. But, now that I’m older, I’ve been thinking about juicing again as I am working on eating more veggies and fruits. I’ve been searching for a while, but this one seems to be the best and it looks like there is a really easy clean up with it. Thanks for the recommendation.

    1. Hi Wendy,

      Thanks for taking time to leave your fine comment here. Glad that I was helpful. If you need to search a little more to be confident that this is the right juicer for you, browse my site and especially look at my post, The Best Juicers For 2018.

  6.  The juicer I currently use in at my house really sucks. It breaks down and it doesn’t do a good job. Aicook Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer looks like an amazing product. I read through your while review and it seems like a reliable one to have in my house. The price is not expensive either. I’m going to show this to my parents and if they like it I’m getting it right away.

    Thank you so much for sharing this article.
