AICOOK is a subsidiary of AICOK. I’ll use these brand names interchangeably in this review.
One thing that I noticed from the AICOK AMR-519 Masticating Juicer is the absence of the company’s trademark juice jug platform. It looks way nicer without it. I’m not sure if the side panel design has a purpose, but overall AICOK really did a great job in crafting this product.
Aside from its looks, its features are similar to AICOK AMR-509. It can also juice dense fruits and vegetables, citruses and leafy greens. If you’re in the market for a great celery juicer, you just found what you’re looking for.
One advantage of getting the AICOOK AMR-519 instead of an older AICOK slow juicer is the reverse button. You see, slow juicers with small chute clearance are prone to getting clog if you’re feeding a lot of produce in it. It comes standard with other brands, but as far as this kitchen company is concerned, they only introduced it in this model.
Price seems to be the most significant advantage of AICOOK products. You can get this baby for a little over 100 bucks. That is still way cheaper than an Omega or a Hurom slow juicer.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
The AICOOK AMR-519 juicer is user-friendly. Just like any standard horizontal slow juice extractor, you just need to assemble more or less 6 parts to get it working.
Is it Easy to Clean?
Slow juice makers don’t come with large sections as centrifugal juicers do. In addition, its filter basket is too small and doesn’t have any sharp components. Add the fact that the detachable parts are dishwasher safe, and you’ll have a juicer that’s super easy to maintain.
Since oxidation is minimal with masticating juicers like the AICOK AMR-519, nutrients stay at high levels in an extended period. You can store a cold-pressed juice for a maximum of three days.
What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice ?
The AICOOK AMR-519 juice press can process almost all types of produce. These include dense fruits and vegetables, citruses, and leafy greens.
Using this machine, you can easily prepare simple juice recipes out of celery, watermelon, asparagus, yakon, pineapple, cucumber, cilantro, sweet potato, carrots, turmeric, apple, pear, pepper, ginger, garlic, bitter gourd, pumpkin, broccoli, beets, cauliflower, and fennel.
If you want to take your juice to a whole new level, why not try green juices? This cold press juicer is also capable of extracting juice from dandelion greens, basil, cabbage, pine tree needles, kale, spinach, wheatgrass, beet greens, brussels sprout, collard greens, moringa, lettuce, parsley, spring onion, and peppermint.
How about a glass of citrus juice? Oranges, lemons, tangerine, limes, mandarin, grapefruit are the easiest type of produce. For sure you won’t have a hard time extracting juice from these fruits.
In comparison to popular horizontal masticating juicers, this AICOK model can’t puree soft fruits. It doesn’t have a blank cone, to begin with. This accessory is also required for making non-dairy milk alternatives.
In short, AICOK AMR-519 is not designed to process soft fruits like peach, pomegranate, papaya, kiwifruit, melon, cranberries, blackberry, mango, grapes, avocado, tomato, and strawberries. It won’t also be helpful if you’re planning to make nut-based milk.
