But, it has a single wired shelf for holding the beer.

Then the EdgeStar KC3000 comes with a deep chill mode so you can enjoy tasty chilled drinks, adjusting the temperature to your liking – a feature you won’t find in many of the other kegerators. The operation is really easy, and you can set it up wherever you like.

The Nostalgia KRS2100 requires installation; especially the tower installation can be a good challenge if you do not have the first-hand experience with kegerators.

The EdgeStar KC3000 weights about 79.4 lbs while the Nostalgia KSR2100 is a 96 lb unit. So transportation and installation, both can be a quite challenging!
