Exotic drinks are no longer off-limits at home cocktail parties when the bar area is equipped with this automatic ice crusher. Simply feed ice cubes through the top into the appliance's ice chamber and then press the power switch to grind cubes into chips. Crushed ice falls into the transparent container at the bottom of the unit, ready for making frozen margaritas, piña coladas, mojitos, or just plain old Cokes with ice. The container holds 14 ounces of crushed ice at a time for making several rounds of drinks at a time, a bunch of snow cones for the kids, or using to fill wine buckets or line serving trays for seafood. The 6000 has a high-quality stainless-steel blade and comes with an ice scoop for self-service bars. This appliance stands 9-1/4 inches tall and is covered by a one-year limited warranty.
