Keggermeister KM2800BK: For customers on a budget
What we had in mind while we tested the Keggermeister KM2800BK was that it wouldn’t be that good because it is quite more affordable than similar models. But it turned to be surprisingly awesome.
The manufacturer says that it can maintain a beer fresh for 3 months, and it can also hold a full-sized keg while occupying not too much room, providing you quite a lot of beer.
You will love the elegant design and the safety addition of a chrome guardrail. But what really blew our minds was the price.
I don’t want to use a pejorative word like “cheap” to describe this great beer dispenser, but if you have a limited capital and want a basic machine to keep your brew cold, this one does that and does it good.
You just can’t expect additional features.
I may sound as a simpleton, but it does what it has to do.
- Elegant look
- Holds full-sized kegs
- No additional functions
- Won’t cool down your beer like other kegerators do
- The rear side is a bit delicate
Keggermeister KM2800SS Review
The Keggermeister KM2800SS Kegerator features adjustable temperature control for chilling to perfection, a three-sided chrome guard rail around its countertop-style work surface, and a single-tap design with a semi-gloss black tower and black-and-chrome spout that accommodates a variety of different-size beer glasses and mugs.
The Keggermeister KM2800SS Kegerator beer dispenser can be used with one full-size keg, one pony keg, or two 5-gallon kegs (also called D system or Cornelius kegs), and has a co2 bottle included, offering enough gas for up to four full-size kegs. Best of all, the unit keeps beer chilled and fresh for up to three months. This kegerator has 4 smooth-rolling casters and lightweight construction make it easy to relocate.

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.
