If you’re looking for a no-nonsense review of the Aicok slow juicer, then you’ve come to the right place!
I purchased the 75mm Aicok juicer back in November 2017 and have been using it every single day for the last three months.
On this page, I’ll write about what I like, what I don’t like and I’ll also reveal the test results where you can see how much juice I extracted from a selection of fruits and veggies.
This is isn’t the first juicer I’ve owned, the two previous products were fast spinning juicers and they both failed within two months, hence why I’ve waited three months before writing this review!
To avoid confusion, here is a photo of the 75mm juicer I own:
Why I Chose The Aicok Juicer
Here are the main reasons why I chose this juicer from Aicok:
- I wanted a juicer with a wide chute so I didn’t have to waste time chopping fruit and vegetables into small pieces (this juicer has a wide 75mm chute).
- Price – this Aicok is competitively priced and is good value in my opinion – see current prices here.
- I really wanted to try a slow juicer after experiencing previous problems with two fast juicers.
- Noise – I often work nights so I wanted a juicer which is a little quieter than the fast juicers that tend to produce a lot of noise and vibrations from the spinning parts.
What I Don’t Like About This Slow Juicer
This product is huge!
I don’t mean width, it’s fairly narrow at around 190mm.
The problem is the height.
With the plunger included, the height of this Aicok juicer is over half a metre.
Half a metre!
To be exact; the height is 545mm. If the plunger is removed, the height is 495mm.
Here’s a couple of photos:
As you can see, I can’t fit the juicer underneath the kitchen cabinets, this thing is huge!
The space between the worktop and the kitchen cabinets is too narrow.
Obviously, this limits the number of locations in my small kitchen where I store this thing.
Sure, I can dismantle the juicer and store all the parts separately, but that’s not ideal as I would like it all in one place and “ready to go”.
If space is limited in your kitchen, I suggest you measure the distance between your worktop and the cabinets, if it’s less than 495mm then it won’t fit at all, even with the plunger removed.
Also, the juicer is plasticky and the build quality can be best described as average.
What I Like About The Aicok Juicer
There’s much to like about this juicer, for the price I feel you’re getting a good product.
Here are the key points:
- It’s easy to dismantle, clean and reassemble and this can be accomplished in less time than I’ve experienced with previous juicers.
- It can handle raw carrots, even huge ones! Sure, the motor does strain a bit but after three months, my Aicok juicer is still grinding the juice out of those carrots without any issues.
- It doesn’t seem to get clogged with fibrous fruits such as pineapple, unlike other juicers I’ve tried.
- Because it’s a slow juicer, it doesn’t pump lots of air into the juice, thus the juice stays fresher for longer. The finished drink is also less frothy.
- The waste material seems very dry, so I believe I’m extracting as much juice as possible and the product is efficient.
The Test Results
This table shows exactly how much juice I extracted from a selection of fruits and vegetables:
|3 x Gala apples||250ml|
|4 x large carrots||350ml|
|1/2 a medium-sized pineapple||250ml|

My Aicok slow juicer has been in use every day for the last three months and I haven’t had any issues at all.
It’s far better than my previous fast juicers, which were both the same price. This juice is less frothy, there’s less waste and less noise.
Overall, I would recommend this juicer, it’s just a shame the product is so tall and there’s only one place in my kitchen where I can store it!
