Product Reviews for Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker - Key West
Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker - Key West5TaronaJuly 31, 2008I've wanted one ever since a friend of mine got one last year. She made me a drink and I knew I had to have one of my own. The hubby got it for me for our 35th wedding anniversary. I couldn't be happier with it. Worth the money!

Is the sealing ring cracked, broken or rotting?
Does the item being blended exceed jar capacity?
Are the blending jar, jar lid, and blending blade dishwasher safe?
Yes they are dishwasher safe. Useful hint: Before washing the blending jar assembly, please disassemble jar parts and wash separately.
Can I make other frozen drinks besides margaritas? How?
Yes. To make other frozen drinks, first add the ingredients and blend manual. After ingredients are well blended then run the preprogrammed cycle as usual.
For example – Making a smoothie
First manually blend the fruits in the blending jar.

Can I stop the programmed cycle?
Yes. The programmed cycle will stop by hitting the power button.
How do I improve the quality of my frozen drinks in the Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction® Maker?
Some suggestions for improving the quality of your drinks:
If the drinks in your Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction® Maker seem to be too watery, simply add more shaved ice by holding the toggle switch in the "Shave Only" for the desired amount of shaved ice. Then, blend it by holding the switch in the "Blend Only" position.
Another option is to make sure that you are using the correct drink setting, 1, 2, or 3 drinks. That will adjust the amount of ice that shaved into the pitcher.
Important Note: The unit will produce a smaller amount of ice if the ice is too hard (right from the freezer) versus soft ice that has been sitting out for 10-20 minutes. For best results the ice should be allowed to sit for 10-20 minutes before placing into the hopper.
How do I clean the ice out of the top reservoir?
Hold the shave toggle down until all the ice is shaved and goes through to the pitcher. You can then go ahead and empty the pitcher.
Do not put hands in the ice reservoir. Shaving blade is extremely sharp.
What should I do if the glass blending jar is overflowing during the shave ‘n blend cycle?
Follow the drink recipes included in “making frozen drinks” section of the instruction manual and make sure to not exceed the specified total volume.
