The Blendtec Designer Series WildSide Blender is a top-rated margarita blender, according to Good Housekeeping. This blender received an A+ rating, the highest among all blenders reviewed in a 2013 test. Amazon.com users also give the WildSide Blender 4.5 out of five stars.
Good Housekeeping applauds the Blendtec WildSide for its LED control panel, preprogrammed cycles and an exceptional grinding ability. The review does point out the blender's noisiness, and it carries a price tag of over $400 as of March 2015. At a fraction of the cost, the Oster Beehive Osterizer Classic Blender also received an A+ review from Good Housekeeping. The review praises the Osterizer for outperforming blenders that are much more expensive. Like the Blendtec WildSide, however, the Osterizer's noisiness was a factor.
