"He was thrilled."

In fact, buy a second canister as backup. The cO2 canister that comes with the product is not filled with cO2. Doesn't apply to Heineken or Newcastle kegs as they're pre-gassed. I've run this unit daily for the past 2 years or so. We entertain a lot so this a must have. It's important to have a fan to move air around. Fridge easily fits two 20L kegs or 1 30-50L.

Midea HS-209BESS Final Thoughts

"That cost a star."

Would highly recommend this product for a first time kegerator users! I ordered the unit from VM Express. The only small thing is there is no internal tower cooling fan but can be added. I purchased this keg because I loved the dual tap feature. Tower is insulated to keep temperatures low from keg to faucet. Thankfully, they put a couple extra in there. Friends enjoy coming over to use it.

"This was a great buy."

My only problem now is the keg is may! If you don't get them tight, expect leaks. I've run this unit daily for the past 2 years or so. It's so much fun, the beer tastes so much better and.

Powerblanket PBICEKEGIP Final Thoughts

"We live this kegerator!"

Big size compared to many other kegerators. Don't kid yourself on the money saving aspect. The dispenser is pretty simple, and basic, but works just fine. It starts cold at 32 degrees and beer is perfect temperature. It is shipped in the original Danby box and arrived without any damage. You'll need to know at least slightly what you're doing. The cO2 canister that comes with the product is not filled with cO2.

"Should be ok after that."

Already gone through a keg with it and no issues. Tower is insulated to keep temperatures low from keg to faucet. I work in the beer industry and I'm going to say this kegerator is on point. My only problem now is the keg is may! Other than that, comes With everything you need minus the gas and beer. Paintball places are also a good place to look. Doesn't apply to Heineken or Newcastle kegs as they're pre-gassed.

  • Kegerator Tower Cooler for Beer Tower - Neoprene Design - Perfect Fit for Kegerator Tap Tower - Easy to Use Beer Tower Cooler Accessory (3.0" Diameter Beer Tower)
  • MAINTAINS ICY COLD BEER TOWERS: Upgrade your beer dispenser with this simple to use Neoprene kegerator tower insulation sleeve. Ensure that every pour from your draft beer tower comes out icy cold. Even the first!
  • END FOAM NOW: Maintain a constant temperature throughout your kegerator system with a Keg Tower Insulator. Beer warms rapidly as it travels through a poorly insulated beer tower. Our product reduces foamy pours and wasted beer.
  • SAVE ELECTRICITY WITH LITTLE EFFORT: The added insulation of a Keg Tower Insulator will reduce kegerator energy consumption. Unlike kegerator tower cooler chiller fans, our product takes only seconds to install.
  • MINIMIZE CONDENSATION: Kegerator towers sweat. Condensation buildup is a sign of poor insulation and will lead to corrosion and rust. Increase the lifetime of your kegerator with a beer tower cover.

Redwood Brew Supply A-2 Final Thoughts

"Works well as described."

It gets colder than a lot of other residential kegerators I have looked at. People having bad experiences must have just stuck with a lemon. Fridge easily fits two 20L kegs or 1 30-50L. I am finally pleased with my purchase. Thankfully, they put a couple extra in there. I find myself drinking more and inviting friends over more. Product arrived with a damaged interior door.

Beer Meister First Impressions

"Very impressive."

Fridge easily fits two 20L kegs or 1 30-50L. I like most of my beers pretty close to 34 or 35 degrees. My family and friends and I love this purchase! It's empty because I'm sure you can't mail pressurized gas canisters. If you don't get them tight, expect leaks. Make sure to defrost according to the instructions. It's so awesome coming home to a freezing cold tapped beer.

"It fits the purpose."

Go there and have it filled up or else your Keg WON'T WoRK. I finished my first keg and it did alright by me. I bought this kegerator because it was one of the highest rated. Already gone through a keg with it and no issues. So if you get the 3 tap version, just quit and put the CO2 on the outside. Secondly, the unit is set up for Commercial Couplers. It's so much fun, the beer tastes so much better and.

This is my first venture into owning a kegerator. The temp control is great, it holds beer down to about 38F pretty easily. Reference the pic I ordered a tower sleeve to keep it insulated.

"Bottoms Up!"

All components were securely packed and wrapped within the unit. It's not difficult, but setting up hose systems is a bit of a pain. Watch YouTube videos on setting it up and troubleshooting. Other than that, comes With everything you need minus the gas and beer. You might need some other couplers if you plan on having some imports inside.

"He was thrilled."

Unfortunately, it did not start off that way. I find myself drinking more and inviting friends over more. Paintball places are also a good place to look. This did not resolve the issue so I was sent a replacement tower. Paintball places are also a good place to look. It's empty because I'm sure you can't mail pressurized gas canisters. Other than that, comes With everything you need minus the gas and beer.

  • Kegco Keg Dispenser, Single Faucet, Black
  • COMMERCIAL OR FREESTANDING USE: The Kegco Z163B-1 features a durable construction, high powered performance, and quiet and energy efficient operation that make it suitable for both commercial and residential applications. It has been CSA certified to conform to NSF/ANSI 7.
  • INCLUDES COMPLETE KEG TAPPING KIT: The Z163B-1 comes complete with a single tap draft dispense system and everything you need to tap a domestic D system keg, including a single faucet stainless draft tower, a chrome faucet, an empty 5 lb. CO2 tank, a double gauge CO2 regulator, and a D system keg coupler.
  • POWERFUL COOLING TECHNOLOGY: Intuitive push button controls and a clear LED display make it easy to precisely set the internal temperature between 32 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, one of the widest available temperature ranges of any keg dispenser on the market today. Fan-forced cooling helps maintain the optimal refrigerated storage environment, and an air-cooled draft tower ensures that every drop of beer remains refreshingly chilled from the keg to your glass.
  • CONVENIENT DESIGN FEATURES: This beer dispenser has all of the same great features that you've come to appreciate in other Kegco models, like an easy-to-clean removable built-in drip tray, a chrome guardrail that helps prevent glasses from sliding off of the countertop, and easy rolling casters that allow you to easily move the unit from room to room in your home or business! These casters lock to keep the unit from moving again once it's in position.
  • LARGE INTERIOR: The generously sized 5.8 cu.ft. interior can hold one full size keg (including Miller kegs, Coors kegs, and rubber kegs), one pony keg, one quarter slim keg, two 5 gallon commercial kegs, three ball lock kegs, or two pin lock kegs. When you're not using it to store and dispense kegs, you can use the three wire storage shelves to convert the keg refrigerator into a regular all-refrigerator. The unit measures 35.875" H x 24.375" W x 24" D.

"The kegerator is awesome."

People having bad experiences must have just stuck with a lemon. The temp control is great, it holds beer down to about 38F pretty easily. This Unit Was just about everything I expected, it works great! Also, Do not remove the duck bill from the CO2 line input! 5 gallons kegs on the metal shelf no problem. Too much money to arrive with damage. This is my second kegerator and I love this one more.

"I love this thing!"

Already gone through a keg with it and no issues. People having bad experiences must have just stuck with a lemon. This is probably one of my favorite Amazon buys ever! Secondly, the unit is set up for Commercial Couplers. It keeps everything so frosty cold. You'll need to know at least slightly what you're doing. This is by far a great bucket list item for a guy if they don't already have one.

"Easy assembly."

Wish there was an option for the Perlik taps which should really be the stock item. No more embarrassing beer bottles filling the recycling bin on the curb! This is a great product as far as function. So if you get the 3 tap version, just quit and put the CO2 on the outside. I bought this kegerator for my boyfriend for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. Tower is insulated to keep temperatures low from keg to faucet. But don't plan on driving anywhere that day.

"Looks good on my bar."

I've run this unit daily for the past 2 years or so. We replaced our hose clamps after all of the CO2 leaked out. Make sure you find a company that sells c02 if you plan to have it ready for a date. 5 gallons kegs on the metal shelf no problem. It was shipped fast and came very well packaged. Gasket didn't want to work where the unit connects to the keg. There are three things in my opinion that you need to do when you get this.

"Looks good on my bar."

It's important to have a fan to move air around. It will fit 2 sixtels and if you keep it minimally cared for it will make you happy. Since replacing them, we haven't had any problems. Thanks to The Beverage Factory for finally resolving the issue. It's empty because I'm sure you can't mail pressurized gas canisters. You might need some other couplers if you plan on having some imports inside. We were a bit worried about the set up but this Detailed manual made it a breeze!

"This thing works great!"

You'll need to know at least slightly what you're doing. This is probably one of my favorite Amazon buys ever! Also, Do not remove the duck bill from the CO2 line input! Fortunately, if you bring a glass, that's not such a bad chore. Did not give it 5 stars because of the directions! I bought this kegerator for my boyfriend for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. The dimensions listed and in some of the comments are not quite right.

  • Half-Barrel Keg Dolly - Inexpensive and Easy Way to Move Half-Barrel Kegs and Large Heavy Pots - Transport Kegs from Walk-in to Keg Fridge at Bar - Makes it Easy to Roll Kegs to Mop Cooler Floor
  • Move 160 pound kegs with 1 finger! The Keg Dolly is great for relocating kegs from a storage refrigerator to outlet beer coolers or to easily move kegs when mopping walk-in coolers.
  • The black StackCo Keg Dollies are much better than the less expensive keg dollies you'll see on Amazon. Ours are made of reinforced durable plastic that will hold 2 kegs without a problem.
  • The 5 casters have non-marking polyurethane wheels which are superior to 'plant' dolly rubber wheels that will quickly wear down with the weight of a keg. One of our dolly's casters has a brake to prevent rolling on uneven floors.
  • We like to call this keg dolly our "Holy Roller" since it is designed with ridges and open slats to allow drainage for condensation that accumulates on the kegs.
  • A full beer keg can weigh 160 pounds. Transporting kegs the wrong way can cause serious injury. Using good-quality keg dollies is a smart investment in your business.

Too heavy and large to return so we contacted mfg regarding just replacing door. It's not difficult, but setting up hose systems is a bit of a pain. Bought it with Prime and it came in 2 days. Great buy, especially for the price. I bought it off here, and it arrived in perfect condition. Otherwise, its best for this price. I bought this kegerator because it was one of the highest rated.

"Just saying."

Some adaptation form the the keg setting that comes with it. That being said, make sure that it is ordered with the correct tapping fitting. Friends enjoy coming over to use it. Seller could have offered me the same option but didn't. So far works good, it comes set up for a sankey keg. Therein is a problem Kegco created. I bought this kegerator because it was one of the highest rated.

  • Slim Keg 11" Sturdy Dolly - Inexpensive and Easy Way to Move Sixtel and Quarter Slim Kegs and Small Heavy Pots - Great for Transporting Slim Kegs from Walk-in to Keg Fridge at Bar
  • The Slim Keg Dolly is great for relocating Sixtel kegs and Slim 1/4 Barrel kegs from a storage cooler to an outlet beer kegerator or for moving kegs when mopping walk-in coolers.
  • These black Keg Dollies are much better than the red keg dollies you'll see on the internet. Ours are made of reinforced durable plastic that will hold 2 slim kegs without a problem. They have been approved to roll up to 300 pounds.
  • The 5 casters have non-marking polyurethane wheels which are superior to the red dolly's rubber wheels that eventually wear down. One of the casters has a brake to stop rolling on uneven floors. In addition, the wheels have an axle bearing rather than a singular axle pin that makes them able to endure more use without seizing.
  • We like to call this keg dolly our "Holy Roller" since it is designed with ridges and open slats to allow drainage for condensation that accumulates on the kegs. You won't find the wheel brake or the open slats on any other keg dolly and the black color keeps the dollies looking clean.
  • These can also be used as plant dollies but never use a plant dolly for kegs! That would be a waste of your hard-earned money.
