Kick start any party by serving up restaurant-quality frozen concoctions with this unique, easy-to-use appliance. Far more than just an ordinary blender, the unit automatically shaves ice and blends up to 36 ounces of a favorite frosty drink, all at the touch of a button. Simply fill the top reservoir with ice and pour the ingredients into the glass jar. The machine utilizes two motors, one for shaving (not crushing) the ice and the second motor for blending the drinks. Shaved ice ensures better drink consistency--no more chunks or watery drinks. The blender's automatic shave n' blend cycle automatically makes a perfect 36-ounce batch of frozen margaritas.
