AICOOK is a subsidiary of AICOK. I’ll use these brand names interchangeably in this review.
The SD60K Wide Mouth Vertical Slow Juicer completes AICOK’s juicer family. It does look promising taking into consideration how cheap it is. You won’t find any other whole slow juicer that will just cost you more or less a hundred bucks.
You can also opt for the Mueller Austria Juice Max Pro in the same ballpark. By the way, Mueller Austria resells (and put their logo) on most of AICOOK’s product lineup, including this juicer.
Both options are cheaper alternatives to an entry level Breville juicer. For juicing newbies, you can have this machine instead of a high-speed juice extractor which is pretty limited to processing dense produce and citrus fruits.
AICOK SD60K is excellent for juicing dense fruits and vegetables, citruses, and leafy greens. It can also puree berries, avocado, banana, and other mushy fruits. Its capabilities also extend beyond juicing. You can also use it to make baby food, nut butter, and sauces.
If you love non-dairy milk alternatives made of soybeans, almond, cashew or any other nuts, this cold press juicer can also help you with that. Provided, that those items have been soaked overnight.
The AICOOK SD60K is indeed a multi-talented powerhouse. Despite being budget-friendly, it’s not a cheap product.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
AICOK SD60K’s large feeding chute has a considerable advantage. It will significantly reduce your prep time. There’s no need to cut your produce into small pieces like in your standard vertical slow juicer.
However, please don’t put a whole apple or a whole carrot in it. It’s purely a marketing strategy. Though the chute opening is big enough, like the very first whole slow juicer model from Kuvings, you are going to risk damaging your machine if you don’t remove the seeds and pits from your fruits, and don’t chop off fibrous veggies such as carrots.
Going back to this product’s usability, initially, it will give you a hard time. However, I’m quite sure you’ll get used to it in no time. One thing that you have to keep in mind is to line up all its parts perfectly, otherwise, it won’t run.
One quirk that isn’t mentioned by AICOK is that the juice this juice maker produces is a little pulpy. If you don’t want that extra fiber in your drink, you’ll need to purchase a sieve.
Is it Easy to Clean?
By any means, the AICOOK SD60K is not easy to clean. It may be true to all whole slow juicers like this because of the chute profile and the filter basket. The non-dishwasher rating makes it even worse. That’s a piece of terrible news for those who do not want to wash their juicers by hand.
Even though its usability rating is disappointing and cleaning it is a bit of a chore, there’s still something good left in this cold press juicer—it doesn’t disappoint in terms of nutrient retention.
This juicer’s speed is capped at 60 RPM. It’s noticeably lower than the AICOOK JE6008‘s 80 revolutions per minute. This 25% difference in speed reduces the oxidation rate even more. Thus, maximizing your juice’s nutrients, vitamins, and mineral content.
What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice?
The AICOOK SD60K juicer is a great companion for juicing dense produce, citruses, soft fruits, and leafy greens.
Dense fruits and vegetables include asparagus, bitter gourd, ginger, fennel, pepper, pear, watermelon, cucumber, carrots, sweet potato, apple, turmeric, garlic, yakon, cauliflower, celery, cilantro, pineapple, beets, pumpkin, and broccoli.
Leafy greens like parsley, collard greens, pine tree needles, wheatgrass, moringa, spring onion, basil, peppermint, brussels sprout, cabbage, beet greens, kale, lettuce, dandelion greens, and spinach can also go well on this juice extractor.
The filter basket has large holes. It’s also designed to take on soft mushy fruits like berries, bananas, avocadoes, etc.
And obviously, citruses like oranges, lime, lemon, grapefruit, etc., are a piece of cake for this juice press.
This juice press is not all about juicing. It’s a versatile kitchen equipment that can help you make nut butter, baby food, sauces, and as well as nut-based milk.

Price is the best selling point of the AICOOK SD60K Wide Mouth Vertical Slow Juicer. You don’t need to break the bank just to get your hands on a juicing machine like this.
As I stated above, it comes with flaws—it’s not that easy to use and clean. But it’s still a capable machine worthy of my recommendation. If not for the price this juicer wouldn’t have passed my standards.
If you’re just looking for a celery juicer or you would like to try juicing out, IMHO, AICOK SD60K is worth considering. It’s good to note that it’s capable of making not only basic recipes but green juices as well.
For experienced juicers, pick a quality slow juicer instead.
