Q: I recently watched the YouTube video on using a mason jar with a blender. Thank you for your helpful hints.

As I saw that most of the people advocating using mason jars with blenders have the Oster brand, I recently purchased an Oster Professional Series blender for this purpose. However, when I attempt to attach the jar to the blade base, the thin silicon gasket keeps on getting graunched by the jar and then pops. The gasket is needed, otherwise the setup leaks.

I even purchased a set of genuine Ball mason jars thinking that maybe the thickness of the glass had something to do with it, but it doesn’t. Any suggestions?

Editor: Readers, has anyone tried to use mason jars with this specific model of Oster blender with success? Do you have a different model that works with mason jars?
