Review: Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker
The good: An excellent choice for those on a budget, the Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas is equipped with all the essential features found on other models of Margaritaville blenders.
The bad: Having been stripped of unessential features and making sparse use of high quality materials in order to introduce a new low price point to consumers, this Margaritaville blender offers only the most basic options for making frozen margaritas and other frozen drinks.
The bottom line: Like all Margaritaville blenders, the Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas creates frozen drinks with an incredibly smooth consistency due to its unique method of shaving ice rather than simply blending it. Pre-programmed to make frozen margaritas, it takes the guesswork out of adding just the right amount of ice to your ingredients, thereby consistently creating perfectly smooth, delicious tasting frozen margaritas.
Redesigned and built for the budget conscious consumer, the Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas comes equipped with only the most basic features found on other models of Margaritaville blenders. While the absence of the additional features may deter some, the new low price point has allowed many consumers to own a margarita machine and has since made the Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas one of the most popular margarita machines available.
Design and features:
Looking to extend the Margaritaville brand of frozen drink makers, designers were tasked with designing a “lite” version of the classic DM1000 Key West Margaritaville blender. The new Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas Margaritaville blender features a conical main body, island shaped base, and parrot beak ice shoot which create the basis for this island inspired drink maker.
All-in-all the changes made to the design are quite positive. The new unit has substantial construction, appears well crafted/assembled, and also has a considerably smaller footprint than the original Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker. Additionally, the custom graphics and branding details applied to the new Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas effectively evoke the island oasis lifestyle of the Margaritaville brand.
As expected, the Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas’ performance is impressive. Like all Margaritaville blenders, the DM0500 Bahamas comes equipped with not one, but two powerful motors. While the first motor is used to power the blending jar, the second is used exclusively for shaving ice. Margaritaville blenders use a superior method of first shaving ice in a separate compartment before then adding it to the ingredients
where it is then further blended. This process eliminates any and all ice chunks that are commonly found in drinks made with other blending machines, and also enables them to accurately add just the right amount of shaved ice to the ingredients. Thanks to this process, the drinks they create are incredibly smooth—as good as anything you might find in your favorite bar or restaurant.
While the DM0500 Bahamas is in fact only equipped with the most basic features, most users will find that it is capable of handling most of their needs. The additional features found on the premium Margaritaville blender models, specifically the Drink Volume Selection Dial and the Drink Type Selection Dial, while quite useful, may not be worth the additional cost to the average consumer.
With its low cost, ease-of-use, and excellent performance, the Margaritaville DM0500 Bahamas is an excellent choice for those looking to own their own margarita machine.

It seems like no matter what we put into this thing, it comes out a magical new favorite. Delightful! Refreshing! Easy.
