Keggermeister KM2800SS Kegerator Reviews
Although there are not many reviews for the Keggermeister KM2800SS Kegerator, they are all positive. Reviewers commented on easy assembly/setup and the quietness of the kegerator.
One reviewer was pleased that the provided tap handle can be easily replaced with a standard brewing company handle. The coupler pressure release pin on this kegerator is an essential feature. This means that if the beer in the keg becomes over-gassed then the excess gas can be vented without unscrewing the coupling. This feature is not available on all kegerators and should be taken into consideration when deciding which kegerator to buy.
In summary this is a very cost effective kegerator. It has all the features required and also comes with a co2 bottle which has to be purchased separately with some other kegerators.
