  • Electronic temperature control with digital display allows you to easily adjust the interior temperature

Note from HBF: At the very least… this can be used as a party cooler.  Since it’s refrigerated, it’s possible it could be converted to a kegerator or a fermentation chamber.  I’ve never seen this before and don’t know what the internal dimensions are.  Maybe someone can way in.

As of this posting, this is marked down $78 to $147.  Check product page for current price and availability.
