Best Cheap Chinese Knockoff Juicers

It is well known that South Kore­an juicer man­u­fac­tur­ers pro­duce juicers of the high­est qual­i­ty in the juic­ing world. South Korea has invest­ed heav­i­ly in devel­op­ment and tech­nol­o­gy research in its pro­duc­tion facil­i­ties. Through this invest­ment, it has suc­ceed­ed in com­ing up with gen­uine and most rep­utable juicers. How­ev­er, Chi­na has ven­tured into the juicers pro­duc­tion mar­ket but lacks its research and devel­op­ment facil­i­ties. Chi­nese have been copy­ing the best tech­nol­o­gy from the USA and South Korea in their man­u­fac­tur­ing facil­i­ties. Juicer made in Chi­na seems sim­i­lar to the South Kore­an juicers though they are of poor qual­i­ty. Cus­tomers some­times can­not tell their dif­fer­ence unless they are famil­iar with those from South Korea. Although Chi­nese mod­els are of low­er qual­i­ty, they pro­vide rea­son­able ser­vice to the users and are also afford­able. Here, we have select­ed some of the best afford­able Chi­nese knockoffs.

How they were selected

Before rat­ing these Chi­nese mod­els, we have con­sid­ered var­i­ous fac­tors that make them stand out among oth­er knock­offs. The first fac­tor is the qual­i­ty of the mod­el. We select­ed the mod­els that can work rea­son­ably. Sec­ond­ly, we chose mod­els that are made from safe mate­ri­als to safe­guard users and enhance clean­ing. Fur­ther­more, we select­ed brands that have a long war­ran­ty in case the mod­el devel­ops some inef­fi­cien­cies after pur­chase. Our find­ings also con­sid­ered the avail­abil­i­ty of cus­tomer sup­port ser­vice; hence we picked out com­pa­nies that have these after-sale ser­vices. It is worth not­ing that, although Chi­nese juicers pro­vide rea­son­able juic­ing ser­vice, they are made from out­dat­ed tech­nol­o­gy. This is because Chi­na does not invest in the improve­ment of tech­nol­o­gy and func­tion­al­i­ty of juicers but instead copy from Kore­an. They sim­ply make the best tech­nol­o­gy looka­likes. Some of the best cheap Chi­nese knock­off juicers include the following.

#1 Aicok Slow Masticating Juicer AMR521

aicok juicer

Aicok Slow Mas­ti­cat­ing Juicer AMR521 is a hor­i­zon­tal sin­gle auger mas­ti­cat­ing juicer that is man­u­fac­tured in Chi­na and dis­trib­uted under the Aicok brand that was reg­is­tered in 2016.

Motor and pow­er: The juicer comes with a 150 watts pow­er motor that rotates the auger with 80 RPM. This is a slow mas­ti­cat­ing mod­el hence pre­serves more vit­a­mins, min­er­als, enzymes in the juice, and reduces foaming.

This machine is designed for up to 20 min of con­tin­u­ous oper­a­tion and should allow rest­ing before resume working.

Design, feed­ing chute, and cham­ber: The design is a Chi­nese fusion of the clas­sic Sam­son and Hurom DU Hor­i­zon­tal sin­gle auger machines. It comes with a trans­par­ent plas­tic cham­ber and round 1.5 inch­es feed­ing chute open­ing. Mate­ri­als that are con­tact­ing with food are claimed to be made from BPA free.

It is con­trolled with the sin­gle switch that has ON/Reverse and off func­tion, the reverse is acti­vat­ed if machine jams ingre­di­ents and it move auger in oppo­site direc­tion to unclog it.

Auger: Aicok Slow mas­ti­cat­ing juicer has a stan­dard for sin­gle auger machines auger design. How­ev­er, the auger made from PMAA acrylic and claim to be safer than stan­dard for South Kore­an brands ULTEM mate­r­i­al. Whether it is true or not remains unknown since the Aicok does not reveal any mate­r­i­al cer­ti­fi­ca­tion documentation.

Screen/strainer: It comes with a plas­tic screen frame and stain­less steel meshed insert. It has one stage screen while the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of sin­gle auger machine usu­al­ly has a two-stage screen that means two seg­ments of meshed inserts are used for high­er juicer yield.

Func­tion­al­i­ty: As any sin­gle auger hor­i­zon­tal machine it han­dles firm and fruits and veg­gies well, also good and leafy greens and able to juicer wheat­grass, it deliv­ers less yield than ver­ti­cal juicer from soft ingre­di­ents. How­ev­er, this Chi­nese mod­el is not a heavy-duty machine and it will not process the ice or frozen ingre­di­ents, it is not also designed for tougher ingre­di­ents like pomegranates.

The juicer does not come with any extra attach­ment and thus will not process but but­ter, baby food, nut milk, or any oth­er food pro­cess­ing task (while the orig­i­nal South Kore­an juicer is usu­al­ly designed for the extra tasks).

Con­tain­ers: The juice is equipped with juic­ing and pulp plas­tic containers.

Weak points:

  • There is no replace­ment part avail­able for these juicers;
  • Cus­tomer ser­vice is hard­ly responsive;
  • It also has a very tricky screen that is very dif­fi­cult to clean prop­er­ly if pos­si­ble at all;
  • It can stack when you dis­as­sem­ble the machine and you will need efforts to fin­ish the tasks;
  • It can start to release a much high­er noise lev­el after a few times use than it did initially.

Sum­ma­ry: It is known as the best Chi­nese knock off hor­i­zon­tal sin­gle auger juicer on the mar­ket. It does deliv­er a decent yield from the firm and leafy ingre­di­ents, you also can juicer suc­cess­ful­ly cel­ery with it, how­ev­er, it not high duty and tougher ingre­di­ents may cause fatal jams. 16.1 x 7.9 x 11.6 inches

Although the juicer comes with 3 years war­ran­ty it is not a durable juicer and lasts around 1–2 years and if you are lucky it may serve you longer.

Just remem­ber, that you will not ever find any replace­ment part for the juicer, and cus­tomer ser­vice unlike­ly to be help­ful if major prob­lems will hap­pen with the juicer.

 #2 Jocuu Slow Masticating Juicer

aicok juicer

Jocuu is anoth­er Chi­nese juicer that is dis­trib­uted under the Jocuu brand reg­is­tered at the end of 2019. There are anoth­er few juicers that have a very sim­i­lar design but dis­trib­uted under oth­er brands — AMZCHEF Pro­fes­sion­al Cold Press Juicer Extrac­tor Machine (reg­is­tered in 2019)/ Picberm PB2110A Slow Mas­ti­cat­ing Juicer Extrac­tor (reg­is­tered in 2019) /CIRAGO Slow Mas­ti­cat­ing Juicer Extrac­tor Two Speed Adjust­ment (reg­is­tered in 2018). These mod­els may dif­fer just slight­ly by motor unit exte­ri­or design but have iden­ti­cal tech­ni­cal parameters.

Motor and pow­er: All mod­els equipped with 150 watts motor and 60 – 80 RPMs rota­tion speed, the machine comes with two speed for soft and hard pro­duce and the soft speed oper­ates at 60 RPMs while the hard speed oper­ates at 80 RPMs.

Jocuu/ AMZCHEF/ Picberm/ CIRAGO juicer motor is equipped with a motor pro­tec­tion sys­tem and auto­mat­i­cal­ly stops after every twen­ty min­utes that allow gives your juicer to cool hence, pro­vid­ing longer motor ser­vice life. 

Design: The design of this set of juicers seems copies of the Hurom Chef mod­el. These mod­els come with a plas­tic body and 2 speeds. The cham­ber and feed­ing chute is made of trans­par­ent plas­tic.  The juicers user man­u­al does not say any­thing if the plas­tic they use is BPA-free while if you ask cus­tomer ser­vice ques­tions they insist it is BPA-free. Quite a con­fus­ing moment. The juicer comes with 1.5 inch­es feed­ing chute open­ing that is typ­i­cal for Chi­nese dupe and applies to old­er 4th and ear­li­er sin­gle auger gen­er­a­tion models.

Auger: The juicer comes with a stan­dard shape plas­tic auger, as was already men­tioned the user man­u­al says noth­ing about the mate­r­i­al the juicer auger made from. How­ev­er, few cus­tomers report that the auger is not durable and may start to chip after a few months of use.

Screen: The screen is made of a plas­tic frame and stain­less steel holed inserts. The plas­tic frame is not durable and tends to break eas­i­ly. The screen is one stage that is typ­i­cal for old­er gen­er­a­tion juicers if com­pared to a well-built South Kore­an machine.

Func­tion­al­i­ty: Jocuu Slow Mas­ti­cat­ing designed to juice hard and soft fruits and veg­eta­bles, leafy greens, wheat­grass, cit­rus fruits. While the juice is rather pulpy. The juicer also may have a jam­ming prob­lem when juic­ing hard ingre­di­ents such as car­rots or beets. How­ev­er, it juice well leafy greens and soft­er pro­duce. The juice is not designed to process frozen ingre­di­ents, nuts, or per­forms any oth­er food pro­cess­ing tasks.

Weak points:

  • Frag­ile plas­tic auger material;
  • Break­able screen frame;
  • Uncon­firmed if the juic­ing bowl, auger, and strain­er are made from BPA-free materials.

Sum­ma­ry: Notably, the juicer is very easy to assem­ble and dis­as­sem­ble, it is easy to clean and dish­wash­er safe. How­ev­er, the juicer has frag­ile plas­tic parts such as a screen frame and auger. Although it in gen­er­al not bad and deliv­er decent juice yield it still has very ques­tion­able plas­tic mate­r­i­al wish also tends to break.

It is a very cheap machine and you can buy it with the prob­lems list­ed above in mind. The juicer also has a con­fus­ing war­ran­ty, the ama­zon says 3 years on part and 10 on the motor while the user man­u­al says only 1 year.

Although it is one of the best sell­ers, I would not rec­om­mend one of these juicers.
