FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1.1 What is Blade?

Blade is an 8-litre countertop draught dispenser that provides a freshly tapped beer.

1.2 Where can I buy Blade?

Blade can be ordered online on uk.blade.shop.

1.3 What are the dimensions of Blade?

Dimensions including drip tray are the following: 590 x 290 x 471 mm (h x w x d).

1.4 How much does the appliance weigh?

17,6 kg (26 kg including a keg).

1.5 Is Blade battery powered or do you plug it in?

Blade is not battery powered. Blade must be plugged into the wall mains with a 2 meter power cable.

1.6 Should I leave the appliance plugged in?

When a keg is loaded in Blade, it should stay plugged in. We recommend unplugging the appliance when it does not have a keg installed.

1.7 How energy efficient is Blade?

The energy consumption will be approximate 0,8 kWh per day. This is comparable to a 35 Watt lamp in your outlet.

1.8 How do I load a keg into Blade?

Check out our HOW IT WORKS section.

1.9 How do I know when my keg is cold enough?

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 3-4 ⁰C.

1.10 Is it possible to regulate the temperature of Blade?

The Blade appliance chills to 2 °C and cannot be set to any other temperature.

1.11 My Blade appliance makes a noise while cooling the keg - is this a problem?

No. You will hear the fan at the back of the cooling system when the appliance is cooling the keg.

1.12 My appliance makes noise when I pour. Is this a problem?

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 a few seconds.

1.13 How do I clean my Blade appliance?

Unplug 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. Blade should never be immersed in water. Harsh cleaning agents may damage the appliance.

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 kegs.

1.14 I lost my Blade user manual. Where can I find it?

The Blade user manual is delivered with the appliance. You can also download it here.

2 KEGS
2.1 Where can I buy kegs?

Blade kegs can be ordered online on uk.blade.shop.

2.2 How much volume of liquid does a Blade keg hold?

A keg holds eight litres.

2.3 What brands are available?

The full range of available brands is listed in the BUY BEER section of our website. The selection we offer may vary depending on the country, and we’ll be introducing new brands over time.

2.4 What are the dimensions of a keg?

Each keg measures 205 x 369,1 mm. The kegs are delivered in individual boxes. The box dimensions are: 209 x 215 x 381,5 mm.

2.5 How much does a keg weigh?

8,3 kg.

2.6 What is the shelf life of a keg?

6 months. Once the keg is installed in Blade, it will stay fresh for up to 30 days.

2.7 How should I store kegs?

Store the keg on a cool place and pre-cool the kegs in the fridge at least 24 hr prior to use. The keg should ideally be chilled to to 4 ⁰C.

2.8 Can I put kegs in my freezer?

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.

2.9 How long does it take to chill a keg?

We recommend that kegs are pre-chilled in the fridge for 24 hours before use. Cooling down a keg directly in the appliance will take more than 24 hours. 

If the keg is pre-chilled at 4 ⁰C, you can start serving right after placing the keg in the appliance. For best results, ensure the needle is pointing at the bottom of the temperature dial before pouring.

2.10 Can I take out a keg before it is empty?

Once a keg is open, you have to keep it in your Blade appliance. You can store the open keg for up to 30 days. This will keep the keg at the right pressure and freshness. You can take the keg out before it is empty, but once removed it should not be consumed.

2.11 Can I open a keg and serve it like a can or glass bottle?

No, the keg is specifically designed to be used with Blade. The beer or cider inside the keg needs to be kept under controlled pressure, otherwise it will not be the quality you would expect. 

2.12 Can I use kegs with other home draught appliances?

No, the 8 litre keg is designed specifically for the Blade appliance.

2.13 What should I do if my keg leaks?

The kegs are sturdy, but they could leak if they freeze or they are punctured. If your keg is leaking, please contact our Blade Customer Hub.
