Has anyone used these? http://www.cornykeg.com/catalog.asp?...showprevnext=1

Looking to buy a couple 3 gallon kegs and looking for opinions the price seems nice on these.

Thoughts?

Also, trying to determine if two of these would fit in my danby DAR440BL fridge, as I will be converting it soon.

Wow. That's a decent price, even for a used keg.

Just be careful if these are chinese made kegs. I've read that they're difficult to find replacement parts for.

They are also not NSF rated (no proof of being foodsafe if you are into that sort of thing)

Why would they need to be? Stainless steel is obviously food safe....

That style of Chinese kegs uses standard parts. Not really a problem find a oval lid or 19/32 posts.

I purchased one and will prob end up buying atleast another 3 gallon and a 5 gallon as well. Lid and posts were all interchangeable with the 5 gallon cornies I had. Seemed nice for the money. I'm not sure how they'll hold up to heavy or long term use but for the money I'm not all that concerned.
