If you are looking for a quality blender, the Margaritaville brand makes a blender called the Frozen Concoction Maker, designed specifically for mixing delicious blended drinks. However, the six different types of Margaritaville blenders can cause some confusion. Which one should you buy? Apart from color, is there anything else about the blenders that differentiates them from each other? Yes, there is, but the type of blender you buy depends on the number of frozen drinks you want to make and the power of the machine you want to buy. Let’s go over each type so we can make a more informed decision.
For starters, the “Bahamas” Margaritaville blender is the base model. It is a 450 watt machine and comes with an ice bin and 4 pre-programmed drink settings. It has dual motors to shave ice and mix drinks as well. You can mix up to 36 ounces of frozen drink. The cordless variety is battery-powered, so you have the added benefit of being able to mix drinks on the go. The 18-volt rechargeable battery powers the blender and blends up to 80 drinks per charge. The wireless “Explorer” model is the same as the base wireless model, just in a different color.
The “Key West” model costs as much as the cordless models, but adds features not seen on the base Bahamas Margaritaville blender. Although it blends slightly less liquid (32 oz. vs. 36 oz. on the other models), it comes with several drink accessories, including a shot glass and salt shaker, which is handy for mixing margaritas and make those drinks look like they do at the bar. These accessories would cost more to buy at a liquor store, and it saves you the hassle of having to buy them separately in the first place.
The “Fiji” Margaritaville blender has the same capacity as the Key West model, but costs $50 more. The additional cost comes from the additional power; This mixer uses 500 watts of power, compared to the usual 450 of the rest of the models. The “Tahiti” frozen concoction maker is the top model. It has several features that none of the other blenders have. It comes with 3 24-ounce mixing jars that can be mixed simultaneously. The ice falls, while it is stationary in the other models, it rotates between jars in this model. You can make more than 6 different types of drinks, including smoothies, landslides, and mojitos. It also has a bamboo wood construction and an aluminum finish for visual appeal. Considering the powerful blending they do, Margaritaville blenders are worth more than their purchase price.
