This is a really great product! Bought this as a Father's Day gift for my boyfriend. He really likes it. The beer does foam a bit, but it's a great size for the counter. More realistic than traditional kegerators. It sits on the counter next to my Margaritaville machine. Getting ready to purchase the adapter kit for other mini kegs. When I received the machine there was a handwritten thank you note inside the box. Very awesome touch. You don't see things like that anymore. I will DEFINITELY be recommending this product!
Much better than the Beertender as it can take both the Heinekin kegs and regular mini kegs (with the accessory kit). Downsides: 1. If the keg isn't already cold don't plan on this chilling it in under 12 hours. Its better to put the keg in the freezer for 2 hours then transfer it. 2. For the accessory kit you must buy 16gm Co2 cartridges. The device goes through one cartridge per keg. So final cost per keg = $1.25 Co2+$19.00 Keg=$20.25 for 16 10oz beers. 3. Interior light is blue (can turn on & off). Should have been white LED as with blue it is hard to display the keg and just plain looks stupid.
My wife bought this for me last May (2013). When I got it, I was ecstatic about it. I went out and bought my first keg, which was Newcastle. Put the keg in and waited for it to get cool. I waited 24 hours like it said. Then I went for the fist pour and nothing but foam came out. That was because the beer wasn't cold. So I waited another 24 hours and the same thing. So I contacted Edgestar about the problem and they gave me some tips, like make sure there is enough room behind the kegerator for air flow and make sure you chill the keg beforehand. I did all that and still had 60 degree beer. So they sent me a cooling node to replace the one that is in the unit. There were no instructions, just "take a look at this YouTube video for a different model and see if that will help." So I did end up replacing the cooling node by myself. I started over with a new chilled keg and same thing; 60 degree beer after 24 hours. The keg had been refrigerated for two days in the fridge beforehand. So then I just shelved the thing and basically forgot about it until yesterday when I contacted support again to see if they could help with the problem (Feb. 2014, still within the 1 year warranty). They told me that there is only a 90 day warranty on the labor and that I would have to pay*** in labor to have them fix it. Otherwise I would have to take it to a small appliance repair shop and let them fix it (which I would have to pay them labor for). The parts are covered for a year, but nothing else. So in short, their support sucks. They are unresponsive and not helpful at all. I would recommend the Krups model if you just want to get pressurized kegs. If you want to have your own kegs, then you will have to find a model that will work, but I wouldn't suggest anything made by Edgestar. I'm an IT guy and I am very good with electronics, so I'm going to try to fix this myself.
This product is a good idea for people who like Heineken. We do not and are now unsure of what exactly to do with this product. It works well and looks nice but the selection of 5L kegs is very limited if not completely nonexistent in our area.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very light weight, almost a little flimsy. Seems like it will chill well.

From a 1-5 I would rate this a 4. Pros: Keeps beer perfect temp, smooth pour, easy to set up from the start. Cons: can only use Heineken unless you purchase the optional CO2 accessory kit, must have beer chilled before hand or will take forever to get to temp.

This was purchased as a christmas gift for my husband. He owned a keg cooler before but it doesn't come close. The only issue we have with it is that the description of the item didn't mention the accessory kit needed for certain kegs. This is a problem as the company doesn't ship to Canada. Why offer this product on Overstock Canada if additional items aren't available?

This mini kegerator only accepts a Heineken 5-liter draught keg, but can easily be modified to tap and serve any non-Heineken, standard-size 5-liter keg using a CO2 accessory kit. The keg is not included with the product.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 29, 2012
