The lady at the check out said that her son had one just like the Oster "MyBlend" that I got and that he liked it very much. She said to be sure to chop up the fruit into small pieces before putting them into the blender/juicer.
I asked about green vegetables and she strongly suggested that I chop them up. She said to stay away from carrots because they were hard. She also said that her son topped off the juice with a shot of gin.
When i got home, I went to the garden to select my green vegetables: I picked a large leaf of mustard green, several leaves of curly kale, searched for small leaves of arugula, and a green pepper.
I removed the stems from the leafy vegetables, rolled each one up separately and chopped away. I also added some of the green pepper. Finally, I chopped up half an apple to sweeten the concoction.
I filled the bottle up, not quite half way, with water, and added the vegetables. I did not pack or load too tightly, fastened the blade assembly, turned the bottle upside down and placed the bottle in the blender's base.
With a simple touch, pushing the bottle down, the pulsing/blending began. It was up to me to decide when the juice was drinkable. I poured the green juice into a glass and handed it to my taster. After a sip, he gave it back to me and I tasted it. Hmm!
I replaced the blade assembly with the drinking lid and put it in fridge. I think the helpful cashier's son was right.
