That’s a very high rating, being the average of hundreds of customers.
It has a 36-ounce size blending jar for making tropics type alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. And the no-brainer mixer with the markings on the side helps you measure for the right amount of ingredients in margaritas, daiquiris, Pina Coladas and more. First, you fill the top part with ice, then add the ingredients by using the measurement mixer, press the green Start button and let it shave and blend, and serve your drinks into margarita glasses.
White, silver and green Margaritaville Bahamas weighs 17.7 pounds and measures 14 x 9 x 18 inches and will not occupy much space on your counter. And as it is quite easy on the eyes it can have a permanent spot on the kitchen or bar bench. The ice tank can hold the amount of ice for one full pitcher. And at the auto mode, the right amount of ice will be mixed into your drink. It also comes with a brand new design jar that makes it easy to pour your concoction, by just opening the hatch and pouring it into your glass. So you do not need to remove the lid to serve the cold drinks.
You’ll be able to make your favorite frozen drinks much quicker and easier. The Start button will trigger the automatic cycle that uses a sharp shaving paddle for shaving ice evenly from the ice tank into your concoction. You’ll find more blades inside the blender jar to further pulverize everything at an optimal level. You can have up to three cold drinks out of the 36-ounce size pitcher. You can choose the blend only or shave only cycles manually or simply go for the auto shave and blend cycle by pressing the Start.
You’ll find a single pre-programmed drink setting on this Bahamas model, and you may want to check out Key West and Bali models by Margaritaville for 4 drink settings, larger ice reservoirs, more power and larger pitcher (in Bali) and even better quality materials and finish. You can also use it like a normal smoothie blender to make smoothies: First hold the lever down to pulverize the ingredients, add the ice to the top, and push the start button. The instructions say you can only put clear ice on top and not frozen fruits or wine ice cubes that could potentially ruin the unit.
You can purchase the replacement jar- Margaritaville AD3200 at Amazon.com if or when you need it. It is very easy to operate and will deliver restaurant or bar quality frozen concoctions with great taste and texture in thirty seconds or so. By making your own and not buying from the bar it will save you some money. It is offered with a limited warranty of one year by Margaritaville. Customer support is very good if you encounter any issues. They will replace or repair the broken unit if it is not because of misuse, they will simply send you a new one. Please note that all parts other than the motor base are safe for putting in the dishwasher.
