What is a Kegerator?
We love the word kegerator it is one of those modern words which perfectly describes the product as well as providing an innovation with a memorable name. The word combines the word keg with the word refrigerator, which perfectly describes what this interesting white good product is.
On top of the unit is a beer dispenser or beer tap very similar to the type you see in pubs and beers. When you fancy a draught beer, you can have one. All you need to do is to pull the lever.
When the keg is finished, all you have to do is to open the door of the fridge and change the keg. Connecting the keg to the pump is easy you just attach the pipe that runs from the pump lever.

The vast majority of the reviews for the Nostalgia Electrics kegorator beer keg fridge were very positive. Most users were happy with its performance.
Here are some of the positive things users said about the unit in their reviews.
This keg fridge is extremely easy to use.
The fact it is on wheels makes it easy to manoeuvre and to stow away in between parties.
One of the biggest problems home users have with a keg is that it takes too long to get through the whole keg. What tends to happen then is that the beer goes flat. This does not appear to be a problem with this particular model. Most users found that the beer did not go flat even when kept in the unit for six weeks or more.
This unit is approved for both home and commercial use, which means that it is made to a very high standard. The fact that the beer tapper is spring loaded made it easy to use.
The double regulator measures the psi as well as the volume of CO2 left in the cylinder. This is helpful because it ensures you always know when it is time to replace the gas.
Because this is a freestanding unit it is very flexible and can literally be used anywhere.
This model is not designed for use outdoors, which some users felt was a bit of a drawback.
The keg coupler only fits D system valves, so you cannot use a non-standard with this system.
Overall this kegorator is a good buy. It works for most people and at a pinch could be used as a spare pump in a bar or other commercial premises.
