No matter what angle I look at it, the Aobosi Whole Slow Juicer fails to impress me in many ways. However, its price tag succeeded in winning over the cheapskates in me. Where else can you find a wide chute cold press juicer that will just cost you a little over a hundred bucks?
Most of the juicing machines in the same category are worth over $400, particularly those coming from established brands. If we do the math, you can buy four Aobosi whole slow juicers with that amount. This product is definitely a great score for bargain hunters.
If we’ll just focus on juicing, this product is capable enough. It can juice dense fruits and veggies, leafy greens and citruses.
Obviously, you won’t get all the bells and whistles offered by top brands such as:
– Ability to puree soft fruits
– Make soy or almond milk
– Extra food processing functions such as homogenizing baby food, making frozen desserts, and mincing ingredients to make a dipping sauce
– Spinning brush to mix the juice inside the juicing chamber
– The self-cleaning feature is also absent
– Dedicated cleaning tool for the filter basket
– Long warranty coverage
Just don’t expect those features in an inexpensive whole slow juicer and you won’t regret having this machine on your side.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
I would be lying if I’ll tell you that the Aobosi whole slow juicing machine is easy to operate. It’s going to be challenging at first, but it will get easier as you use it more and more.
The dual chute system, despite its advantages, added complexity to its operation. There’s a recommended cut for different types of fruits and vegetables that can go on each chute opening. I’ll cover this in detail on the following section.
Is it Easy to Clean?
It’s nice to note that the detachable parts of this juice maker are top-rack dishwasher safe. That’s definitely a plus, but you can’t skip on brushing off fibers which got stuck on the juicing screen. So yes, cleaning this type of juice extractor will take some time, five minutes to say the least.
Cleaning your juicer immediately after each use is highly recommended.
The Aobosi whole slow juicer belongs to an elite class of juice extractors—cold press juicer. It’s a fact that a cold-pressed juice tastes better and retains more nutrients than those drinks processed by high-speed juicers, and it all boils down to oxidation.
Minimal oxidation happens in slow juicers, that’s why juice produced by it can last for up to three days. That’s a wide margin compared to centrifugal juicer’s 24-hour juice shelf life.
What Kinds of Produce Can It Juice?
This juice press can process dense produce, leafy greens, and citruses.
Though the Aobosi wide chute slow juicer has a big chute, I wouldn’t recommend dropping a whole apple or a whole orange (like in the product photo) in it. Keep in mind that this juicing machine is a cheap product. I bet it’s not designed for heavy-duty usage, so you’ll have to handle it with care.
However, you can skip on slicing your fruits and veggies into small pieces just like you would in a standard vertical slow juicer with small chute opening. Larger portions would do just fine.
Tougher produce such as beets yakon, pumpkin, turmeric, sweet potato, fennel, and other items like pineapple, watermelon, garlic, broccoli, etc. can go into the 3-inch flip over inlet.
Celery and asparagus don’t need cutting, these items can go straight down the smaller chute. Carrots, radishes, cucumbers, zucchini should be cut lengthwise into four equal slices, and the 1.5-inch chute is also its best point of entry.
You can put your leafy greens like kale, spinach, collard greens, parsley, spring onion, moringa, basil, peppermint, lettuce, beet greens, etc. on either of the two chutes.
Citruses such as limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruit, tangerine, etc., can also go on either inlet. Remove the peel, rinds, and seeds for best results.
This electric juicer is not designed for pureeing soft fruits and making soy and almond milk.

They say that price dictates a product’s quality and I couldn’t agree more. As long as you’ll not expect Aobosi Wide Chute Masticating Juicer to be a heavy duty machine, and treat it with respect, it will probably last you a year or two.
I highly recommend this product for bargain hunters and those looking for a dependable celery juicer.
