Unitasker Wednesday: The Ultimate Professional Drink Maker

What does one do when a craving strikes for a delicious slushy or smoothie? You can head over to your favorite smoothie joint and partake in their wide variety of flavors or you can invest in the Ultimate Professional Drink Maker. That’s right, now you can have your very own icy concoction 24/7. No need to travel out of your home to enjoy that fruity sensation. You also can use it to make some alcoholic drinks in the form of a tasty margarita or daiquiri.

So what is the catch? C’mon, you knew there had to be a catch. First off, the size of this unit is not very small. Weighing in at 55 pounds and measuring 13″ x 17″ x 30″, it has a pretty hefty footprint. The other catch is the price tag. It will set you back $2000. You must really like your homemade smoothies to own this monster!

Thanks to reader Samir for bringing this unitasker to our attention.

**Each week, the Unitasker Wednesday column humorously pokes fun at the unnecessary, single-use items that manage to find their way into our homes.

    This bad boy would only be good if you add some alcohol to the mix. Otherwise, total waste of $… :)

    Wow, I like homemade smoothies – no way I’d want that on my counter all the time though. I can also think of a lot of other things to spend that much money on too!

    How does this differ from a regular blender?

    That’s just a damn blender!

    For two grand, you could have FOUR Vita-Mix’s!
    (I should SO get something for that plug.)

    Seriously, you could open a smoothie STORE for that much money…

    @Gabriel — A smoothie store! Brilliant.

    I always thought the Jimmy Buffet Margarita-ville margarita maker was quite the unitasker. I haven’t seen this version before. So heavy! Literally AND on the pocketbook.

    I love homemade smoothies – I use a blender, which was actually a birthday gift from my parents to my husband (he’s the cook), and so didn’t cost me a dime!

    well it does say PROFESSIONAL drink maker, not HOME drink maker…

    My husband and I are known as margarita drinkers, and I have lived for the last several gift-giving holidays in fear of receiving one of the “margarita machine” products. At least anyone giving me a gift is too cheap to get me this one.

    It is a bad sign that I sometimes read Unitasker Wednesday posts and then start searching online for one of my very own? This blender is awesome looking!

    It’s still probably not worth the $2k.

    My blender cost $20. I must be missing out on something.

    I’d rather go the bar for a cockail or Jumba for a smoothie. Even with gas prices as they are, you’d probably still save money versus buying this thing!

    Wow, talk about disposable income! Aside from the fact that it looks enormous, I use a stick blender for fruit and yogurt smoothies, and a regular blender if ice is involved.
