AICOK or AICOOK is dominating the world of kitchen appliances lately. AICOK is not a misspelling. In fact, it’s the official brand, and AICOOK is its subsidiary.
Affordability is AICOOK’s ultimate selling point. The Chinese company sells cheap slow and high-speed juicers. It’s going for Breville and Omega’s dominance in the juicing market.
The AICOK AMR516-1 400W Wide Mouth Centrifugal Juicer was its answer to Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus. It has similar capabilities but only cost half as much. How can you say no to such a deal?
It’s not as powerful as the Juice Fountain plus, but it’s still a functional juicer. The AICOOK AMR516-1 can help you make common juice recipes out of dense produce and citrus fruits.
- Safe to operate—it comes with a locking mechanism that prevents the motor from running unless all the parts are lined up correctly.
- 2.5-inch wide feeding chute, though smaller than other popular juicers, it can significantly reduce your prep time
- Stainless steel mesh filter-blade assembly
- Food grade BPA Free Parts
- High capacity pulp container (1.6L)
- 450mL juice jug
- Being one of the fastest juicers in the market, it can make a glass of juice in just 4 seconds
- Dishwasher safe parts
- 2-year warranty
- To prevent overheating, it requires 2-minute cool down for every minute of usage.
- 24-hour juice shelf life
- Smaller feeding chute in comparison to other popular centrifugal juicers
- Limited to juicing hard produce and citrus fruits
- A relatively new company, with a reputation to build
Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
AICOOK AMR516-1 Centrifugal Juicer is a typical dual-speed juice extractor. It works the same way as any Breville Juicer. In short, it’s very straight forward. Assembly, operation, and maintenance is a piece of cake.
Unlike the AICOK GS-336 it comes with safety locking feature. This is a relatively harmless machine, but you just need to stick to its limits. It’s not designed to extract juice from leafy greens and soft fruits efficiently. Also, it has a 1 minute operation time (as I noted in the cons section).
If you only need a glass of juice, that will just take 5 seconds.
Is it Easy to Clean?
This high-speed juice extractor is dishwasher friendly. You don’t need to spend a lot of time cleaning it after you’re done with your juicing routine. If you want to make your life even easier, put a biodegradable plastic in the pulp bin. Now you just need to deal with the smaller parts.
In terms of juice quality, AICOOK AMR516-1 will just have a score of 5/10. That is in comparison with slow juicers. Slow juicers don’t incorporate a lot of oxygen into the juice. This is why juice made out of this type of machine last longer, 3 days to be exact.
It is the exact opposite of fast juicers like the AICOK AMR516-1. The high RPM draws a lot of air into the juicing chamber which causes your juice to oxidize or spoil faster.
Here’s the trick, drink your juice right away or at least within 5 minutes. Most of the nutrients are still intact during that time. The longer you wait, the more nutrients you lose until it’s all gone in 24 hours.
What Kinds of Produce Can the Juice Fountain Plus?
The AICOK AMR516-1 Juicer will work relatively well for hard and soft produce.
Fruits and vegetables like asparagus, bitter gourd, turmeric, carrots, celery, sweet potato, pineapple, cucumber, garlic, pear, ginger, yakon, pumpkin, cauliflower, apple, watermelon, broccoli, fennel, pepper, cilantro, and beets are compatible with this machine.
It can also juice your favorite citrus fruits such as lime, grapefruit, mandarin, orange, lemon, and tangerine.
This juice maker is not efficient in juicing leafy greens and soft fruits.
