Thing about this juicer banana does not juice, it just build up in the juicer. If I watched the end of Curious George where the kids do experiments, I would have known that. I had to chop food to go through the slot, it actually took more time than I realized and more fruit & veggies to get juice. I know there are some juicers that take the food larger. Well at least my son gets a kick out of it.
Adding stuff to it was my son favorite thing. I had a hard time getting him to drink much. $29.00 cost for the Black and Decker Juicer at local Wal Mart, not bad. If I was to make more juice I wouldn't mind if it could handle larger fruit pieces, but it's cool for us.
