Margaritaville DM1900 Frozen Concoction Maker
Less than $300
The DM1900 is the latest update of Margaritaville’s extremely popular Key West line of home margarita machines. The new Key West gets a larger ice reservoir and 4 preprogrammed settings.
Give your party a special touch by serving restaurant – quality frozen beverages with this distinctive Margaritaville Frozen Concoction machine.
Much more than simply an regular blender, the machine mechanically shaves ice and blends up to thirty two ounces of your desired cool drink, all at the tap of a button. Basically just pour the ingredients into the glass jar and put ice in the top reservoir.
Choose how many drinks to make, and the appliance automatically mixes the correct amount of ice by the ingredients.
Additional highlights consist of easy front access controls, a steady footprint, an easy-to-clean design, and a solid handle and drip-free spout on the glass jar for elegant serving.
Accurately spot on to its claims, the machine really makes ideal consistency slushies and margaritas (and every other frozen beverages you can imagine). I believe I like it better than my wife who wanted the machine. It has a “power tool” vibe to it that guys are pleased about. Whirling blades plus high speed motors. What can possibly go amiss? Well be alert on these few things:
1) It’s HUGE. It scarcely clears the front of our kitchen cabinets and is too tall to fit beneath them. Quite weighty to raise on top of a high shelf too.
2) It does a better consistent task making a “full” jug than only a single glass of something. Putting a lot of ice in the hopper is the best solution; placing a single glass full of ice in will probably be too diluted if you use the programmed cycle. To solve this, I manually hold the “shave” button on for 5 seconds before starting the programmed mix cycle for a single cold drink. Works wonderful for me.
3) Even though the lid is “dishwasher safe” it turned a odd spotted brown/green tint and brittle after one wash. We are not certain if it was the high temperature or the detergent. Their customer service gave a free replacement that we only hand wash now.
All in all, it works as promised
