CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

We know Southeast Health dietitian Raina Childers likes the nutritional benefits of juicing, but will she like this specific juicer? It's the Jay Kordich Power Grind Pro. What makes it different is in the name "grinder."  It grinds fruits and vegetables, even nuts, all to make healthy preservative-free juices.

Problem is....there aren't many directions that go with this high-dollar machine, so Raina and I will toss a little of "this and that" in.

"We don't know what's going to happen," said Raina.

So, we throw in unsliced strawberries, with the leaves on.  It grinds and juices perfectly.

The Power Grind is a pro at that. Carrots, too...these are peeled though. So, the machine's working so far, but we know you're wondering, how does it taste?

"Not bad!"

We're not clinking those glasses on our next try. As we go along, the juicer's getting clogged and our fruits and veggies are coming out the opposite side.

However, the manufacturer reminds you this is a grinding juicer. So, you might have to pour in some water. We do. Our bananas end up less pureed, along with sliced unpeeled oranges, whole kiwis and blueberries.

It's worth noting: to make the healthy spinach drink the maker shows, we used an entire bag of spinach leaves. This is turning out to be an expensive endeavor, which is a little tough to chew on...let alone drink.

"Oh my! It's a little grassy. I now know how a cow feels!" as we laugh and taste the spinach drink.

Back to the point of the test...

"Once we figured it out , it worked, and it did what it said it did."

But, there's a lot of time involved cleaning this model in between juicing and grinding. Our dietitian thinks there might be other products that might work well.

"I've known other people who've used other brands that were easier."

So, if you have a lot of grinding to do with almonds and other nuts, this is your product. For juicing, as long as you add some water, you should be fine once you swallow the almost $300 price tag.

"For a rating, I'd say a 'C."

We'll take our vitamin C to go and give the Jay Kordich Power Grind Pro a 'C' on this Does it Work test.   You can buy it online here.
