When there is a KEG in The BLADE, it should stay plugged in. We recommended unplugging The BLADE when it doesn’t have KEG installed.

The temperature gauge uses a sensor to indicate the temperature on the exterior of the keg. The optimum drinking temperature is when the pointer of the temperature gauge is at the bottom of the scale. Note: use only pre-cooled kegs at a temperature of 37-39⁰ F.
The BLADE chills to 36° F and can’t be set to any other temperature.

No. You will hear the air pump inside the appliance during pouring. After closing the tap the pump will be in operation till the controlled pressure is reached. This can take some seconds.
Unplug The BLADE before cleaning the inside and outside with a soft cloth. Use a damp cloth to clean the cover and a dry cloth to clean the cooling chamber. The BLADE should never be immersed in water. Harsh cleaning agents may damage The BLADE.
Clean the drip tray with warm, soapy water after every use.
We recommend cleaning the tap every time you load a new KEG to avoid contamination and mixing different beers.

A KEG holds eight litres of beer
Blade kegs can be ordered from your local Heineken or Five Points Trading Company beer distributor.
The full range of available beers is listed in the BEERS section of our website. The selection of beers may vary by state and we’ll be introducing new beer brands over time.
Blade kegs will be delivered with in a box. The box sizes are: 15.01”L x 8.22”W x 8.46”H
Store the keg on a cool place and pre-cool the kegs at least 16 - 20 hr prior to use. The beer should be chilled down to 39 ⁰F.
No. The KEG should not go below zero degrees as this may damage the packaging and cause beer leakage. You will no longer be able to use the KEG once frozen.
Cooling down a warm keg in the BLADE will take more than 24 hours. After 3 or 4 hours, you are able to pour your first couple of beers. After that, you can pour every hour around 1 litre of beer. If the keg is pre-chilled at 39 ⁰F, you can pour direct after placing the keg in the appliance.
Once a KEG has been opened, you need to keep it in The BLADE and keep The BLADE plugged in. This will keep the beer at the right pressure and freshness. You can take the KEG out before it is empty, but once removed it should not be consumed.
No, the KEG is specifically designed to be used with The BLADE. The beer inside the KEG needs to be kept under controlled pressure, otherwise the beer will not be the quality you would expect. Piercing a KEG is only allowed when the keg is fully empty and disconnected from the appliance.
No, KEGS are designed specifically for The BLADE.
The KEGS are sturdy, but they could leak if they freeze or they’re punctured. If you have a KEG that was leaking when you received it, please contact your distributor representative.
