I would have selected 0 stars but it was not a choice.

My husband had purchased the Margarator for me during the winter in preparation for opening the pool in the spring. I am the person that is in charge of refreshments whenever we entertain and he thought this would be helpful in saving me trips back and forth to the kitchen because it is so large and self storing.

I have now UNSUCCESSFULLY used the item 3 times and have disappointed over a dozen guests that were hoping for a refreshing slushy drink by the pool. After my first unsuccessful attempt, I had my husband read the directions that I had read. He set up the machine the same way that I did, filling the ice to the Max line, adding the 2.5 cups of Tequila mix and the bottle of margarita mix. We even pre-crushed the ice cubes to try and help it out. Again, after 12 minutes of letting it run, it produced 1/2 cup of slush that would come out of the nozzle and the rest was trapped inside with large pieces of ice.

So the third time we chopped up the ice more, added extra fluid to try and help it AND shut if off and stirred with a wooden spoon occasionally. Same results as the previous 2 times. So we yet again scoop out the ice chunks, jam a straw into it and hand it to our disappointed guests.

Because he bought this in the winter, I can no longer return it to the store that he ordered it from. Do we have the receipt - NO. I am willing to pay to ship this back to the Hellman Group - NO. We have wasted enough money on mixes and alcohol alone.

I am EXTREMELY annoyed and disappointed with the malfunction of this product, as are all my parched guests. Am I willing to try it yet again? Thats what the Hellma Group asked me to do after I contacted them.

Margaratorthe 1st 2 times we used this machine it worked great!, wonderful margaritas for our party guests.... Well on the third use, the plastic collar on the grinding cage broke. The manufacturer was very helpful and sent out a replacement. Then the motor burned out!!!!! (it does take more like 1/2 hr to make the margaritas.) This was during our party so we dashed out to our local walmart to get another machine, so as not to disappoint our guests. This worked well, a great time was had, until the second time we used it a few weeks later, the plastic collar broke again!!!. We returned this machine, and thought we'd give it another try, the new machine worked for 20 minutes, then the motor went kaput!!....so, back to the store we went, exchanged it one more time!......same result, motor died after an hour!!!! (we gave this product more than a fair chance!) we finally sent the one 'on line' purchased machine back ($99) and our store bought machine was returned, out of 4 machines none of them worked consistently, and they were expensive. Great idea (when it works) poor design, Hellman group keep trying, maybe a new design will work better?........I do not recommend this product at the present time July 2007

I thought this was nothing but a piece of junk! I paid a nintey bucks for one of these and it was worse than my 14 dollar blender. You pretty much have to make a gallon at a time to even get it to be slushy ice mixture but by the time you add enough ice, your drinks taste like a bad watered down mexican restauarant 2 for 1 margaritas. The instuctions are not very precise, says wait 6 to 8 min but it actually took the machine about 15 minutes. Oh and after about an hour it all melts down. After wasting about 40 bucks worth of tequila on this trying diff techniques I took mine back to Walmart. The customer service rep also told me it wasnt the first one that was returned for the same reason. SAVE YOUR MONEY! A Cheap blender works better than this!

The Margarator made pretty good Margaritas for about the first five times. We took good care of it and cleaned it thoroughly right after use. The base was never immersed in water. Recently we tried it and the electric motor threw some smoke and carbon traces from the bottom, and then it froze up. The unit no longer operates. We would return it for warranty replacement, but its a pain in the @$$. Then we read other reviews. It looks like others are just as displeased as we are. Frankly, we aren't sure why this thing is still on the market. We use a good blender now and it works just fine. We keep the non-functional unit on our bar (we entertain quite often), and when people ask us what it is or how we like it, we are happy to tell them what we think. None of our friends own one as far as we know. We also question the quality of the stores that carry these things.

this item is good for a party setting, not for small gatherings. The quantities you must mix are large (1 gallon at a time) because otherwise the machine does not work properly. If you wait to serve the second batch it is watered down because of the amount of ice that you have to put in to make the machine work. The Margarator works much slower than the directions state. After 3 unsuccessful attempts to make the perfect batch of margaritas I returned the machine!
