Anyone got one?
The Blade seems popular the the Phillips is half the price and has decent reviews.

I was thinking of getting one , but I think the novelty would where off fairly quickly . There’s some good offers on beer hawk though

Would it be like a Tassimo where it ends up in the cupboard and you just go and buy cans?
this has crossed my mind which is why I didn't want to fork at £500 quid for the blade.
The Phillips is £200 and they do Stella.

And it’s £30 for a 6 litre keg which is what roughly 10pints you can get 3 cases for the same price or less

a lovely pint though apparently but yeah, pushes up the weekly ale bill.
Think Moretti for the blade works out slightly cheaper.

Keep an eye out on either amazon or Tesco as I seen the krup dispenser being sold for about £80/90 last year on Black Friday

My mate has a blade, and gets the Moretti. Absolutely swears by it. Turning him into an alcoholic haha. You get money off kegs when you send back returns apparently.

Fancy spending a load of money and a beer machine and using it to serve up that piss water. Like putting Nescafe through my bean to cup machine (no offence)

Surely you've got local micro breweries or indie boozers willing to deliver mini kegs or bottles etc?

Spend yer wedge with them instead of some gimmicky tat.

I'm with you as it happens, seems too much money just so you can pull a pint instead of pouring one.

I think having considered the sage advice of some of the forums greatest minds I'm not going to bother with such a frivolous purchase in these uncertain times. Cheers!

Start a beer thread, get some recommendations (sure there was one already, but I can't be arsed to find it!)
I may have started a few of those , but I can honesty recommend Rossini from Aldi ( phoney peroni) really nice and very smooth and in my opinion better then peroni . Although during this lockdown I’m not going to drink as much for the first few weeks I was on it every night

Been tempted a few times with these but feel the novelty would wear off quickly unless I had a bar or a proper designated place for it

Everyone I know who got one has it now gathering dust next to their George Foreman grill
