So everyone wants to know what a Soda Stream is well its a machine that allows you to make soda at home in your own kitchen. Yes I know sweet right. Ok so the machines start out at 79.99 to 199.95 it depends on which model you get some are a little fancier than others and they have gas gauge and a fizz strength gauge I thin I would like this feature as I could get the same exact amount of fizz every time and I would not have to guess how much was left in the carbonator, The model I received is nice and looks cool on my kitchen counter but does not have the gauges on it. The SodaMix flavors range from $4.99 a bottle to $9.99 a bottle. Each bottle of SodaMix flavor makes about 12 liters of soda or 33 cans regular cans of soda I believe they have over 30 flavors. they also have sparkling water flavors and several different tea flavors. There is a new Sparkling Naturals that has no artificial flavors, no artificial colors and no artificial sweeteners, and do not contain any preservatives. Last but not least they even have energy drinks both a regular and a diet. The Carbonator we received Carbonates up to 130 liters of water and cost about $29.99 to have it refilled. You can either take it to a exchange location or you can order one on line and ship the empty back to them. All in all it comes out to be about 25 cents per can of soda. Its always fresh and you never have a waisted bottle of soda sitting in the fridge.

Cleaning is simple which I love because I hate cleaning. the only real cleaning you have to do is to wash out the 1 liter bottle after you finish off the soda that's in it. You can wash it out with a mild soap and warm water and allow it to air dry. they do offer a dishwasher safe bottle that you can buy. But to be honest I don't mind washing it by hand.
