Cons:

  • Noisy: The appliance often makes loud popping noises.
  • Thermostat Issues: Users have complained about temperature problems and the beer not getting cold enough. While others have had complaints of their appliance getting too cold and freezing up their kegs. The thermostat requires a lot of tweaking before you reach the temperature that is ideal for you.
  • Unsatisfactory Installation Guide: The directions in the manual are that of a single tap kegerator so the installation process can be very difficult especially if it’s the first time you’re setting up a kegerator. Online guides and videos can be helpful in the process.
  • Storage limitations: The kegerator does have a limited storage capacity and does not support Coors, Miller rubberized or other oversized kegs.
  • Quality Issues with Certain Parts: There have been complaints regarding the quality of some of the parts like the drip tray which is made of plastic and the faucets that can seize up.

All in all, the EdgeStar Full Size Stainless Steel Dual Tap Kegerator has a decent design with good features especially the dual tap functionality. Most of the drawbacks are minor and can be sorted out with a little bit of work. However the loud noises make this kegerator less desirable than the other EdgeStar kegerators.
