When I first got it, however, I thought I had made a bad purchase decision. When I opened the package, I saw that the screen was already installed inside the juicer, so I just left it in there figuring it was supposed to be there. After 10 minutes of cranking, only a couple of drops of juice came out of the juicer. The only way to get anything green to come out was to pour water in the juicer. So, I did that for a couple of days and was going to give up on the juicer. Finally, I realized I should try removing the screen and as soon as I did, the juicer operated normally and produced juice within a couple of minutes.
A couple more points: Definitely run the pulp through again, there is still a lot of juice left in there. I find it really easy to just put a bowl under the juicer to catch the juice and just grab the pulp with my fingers when it comes out and put it on a plate. Then later I run the pulp through a second time.
Also, don't waste your time trying to juice vegetables with this, it's really made for wheatgrass. Anyone who has used wheatgrass for any length of time and knows the health benefits will be absolutely fine with that. The important thing to most of us is that we get our daily shot of wheatgrass juice.
I highly recommend this. You can be a complete beginner and learn how to operate this right out of the box. It's low tech and it's tiny (which is great because you can store it easily). It looks like it will last for years and years. I absolutely love it!
The owner's Manual, such as it is, is long on the virtues of wheatgrass, and very short on using the product (English as a second-language).
Revisiting: I have shimmed the auger as needed. It boggles the mind that the lack of a $0.75 part should be the cause of such poor performance, but I used a nylon washer to build out the auger in such a way that the end cap, the part that does the squeezing, can actually work. That accomplished, the juicer works well. The loose handle is still an issue, but one gets used to it and can work around it. I have decided to keep the juicer, and tap a restraining nut to better hold the handle on during operation; not absolutely required, but it will make a more satisfying experience.
Finding a 5/8 i.d. nylon washer is not easy to do. The company should include several in the basic package. The hassle of looking for the washer keeps the rating at 3, even though the unit can be made to work well. Consider the Healthy Juicer as an alternative.
Next is the mount very strong and effective however it only opens to a maximum of one and a half inches limiting to what you can clamp it onto. So, if your counter top is that size or less you're in luck but make sure it's extreamly strong !
I camp it onto a 2x12 plank clamped onto sawhorses. (Outside my garage) My counters are 2" on the edges and besides I wouldn't risk the chance of cracking the marble. If you have tile or granite, or any similar materials I wouldn't chance it.
A second part to the mount issue is the height, it will only accommodate a very low bowl or saucer. Only about 2" of clearance. There you have it ! I hope that helps.
