SodaStream Home Drinks Maker

We drink way too much pop in our house. Soda, pop, carbonated beverages, what have you. I often worry about my family’s sugar intake. I have tried to cut back in the past but quite honestly, I like the taste. Since I started watching what I eat and watching my weight this has been a problem. This is until I discovered SodaStream. 


What is SodaStream?

Sodastream allows you to make your favourite beverages from home in seconds. Not only is this environmentally friendly (less bottles being used) this is also a great way to save money. 

SodaStream is the world’s largest manufacturer, distributor and marketer of Home Carbonation Systems. Our brands are sold in over 55,000 retail stores in 43 countries including home & electrical appliance stores, hypermarkets, supermarkets, department stores, convenience stores, DIY, specialty and “green” stores, water specialists & dealers, as well as online and in catalogs.

Our long standing and deep heritage dates back to 1903, when we introduced innovative solutions to the beverage market. We continue to grow as market leaders in both technological advancements and the quality of our products.

The SodaStream system enables consumers to carbonate water and to flavor carbonated beverages at home as an alternative to purchasing pre-packed bottles or cans. This has many important benefits to the consumer including cost savings and no hassle with bottles.

The advantages of SodaStream’s Home Carbonation System include:

Convenience: No need to carry heavy bottles from the store. The SodaStream system is simple to use and requires no batteries or electricity.

Environmentally-Friendly: SodaStream is an “Active Green” solution that minimizes the huge eco-footprint caused by the manufacture, transport and waste of plastic bottles.

Variety: SodaStream offers over 100 flavors to suit everyone’s taste. Regular, diet, natural, fruity flavors, ice tea, energy drinks, sport drinks, tonic and many more.

Space Saver: No need to store bottles of beverages or empty bottles for recycling in your home.

Personalization: Make drinks just the way you love them… more bubbles, less bubbles, sweeter or lighter, even create your own flavor!

Family Fun: The system is quick and easy to use. It’s fun for everyone and kids just love it!

Value for Money: Great savings compared to pre-packed carbonated water and beverages.

Satisfaction Guaranteed: SodaStream drinks makers are of extremely high quality and include a money-back satisfaction guarantee.

We have been enjoying the convenience of our SodaStream for a couple of months now. We really like it. It is easy to use (my kids can do it) and the variety of flavours is endless. Replacement syrups and CO2 canisters can be replaced online or in selected retailers. There is a distributor close to me so I am happy. We love that it uses fresh water out of the tap and we can control the amount of fizz we add to each bottle. I love that there are so many low calorie flavours to choose. They even have Kool Aid for a fun one. 

Today when I was at the bank my teller had a smaller SodaStream bottle. I asked her about it and she said she bought it in store and it was her travel size. The bottle I have is 1 Litre and hers was half the size. 


Our fave flavours are Gingerale, Cola and ink Grapefruit.

How it works

Once you have chosen your flavour you add your  bottle filled to the fill line with tap water to the drinkmaker. The Cylinder is in the back and this will add the fizz. Press the fizz chip to add as much fizz as you desire. Remove, add syrup, shake lightly and drink.

We love the taste and the variety. I think it is very cool looking and often get asked by company about it when they see the Green Drinkmaker on my counter. I love showing it off. Best of all we can make as much or as little as we like. This is a very affordable option and I feel it is helping me achieve my fluid intake goals. (My dietitian said I need more fluids) Today at the bank my teller told me she just drinks the bubbly water.

You see the 60L? This means there is enough fizz for 60 or my 1 L bottles. This is going to last for a bit 🙂

Have you tried SodaStream before? What is your favourite flavour?


  1. I was thinking of giving one of these to my daughter for her birthday this year. Thank you for the great review!

  2. I don't have one at the moment, but I imagine my favourite would be the cola-flavoured one. Though given the sheer amount of varieties SodaStream has available – and, hypothetically, flavours you can make yourself – my favourite flavour might have competition.

  3. Thank you for the review! I have seen this repeatedly in Walmart and as a big pop fan, I have been considering purchasing it. Your review was very helpful!

  4. I've wanted one of these for such a long time now! Hopefully by the summer we'll have one; it would make a good birthday present for me!

    Great review, I may just invest in one

  6. I've wanted a Soda Stream for many years. Soda Stream was actually one of the first reviews I found online when I started reading blogs – ever since I've wanted one. Enjoy!
