I am a big soda drinker so when I found the SodaStream Fountain Jet Starter Kit, I had to review it. This is the only home machine I found of this kind that can make Soda. Now I can cut back at going to the supermarket to pickup a 24 pack of Coca-Cola or other carbonated drinks. I have all need at home.
Fountain Jet soda maker
110 Liter carbonator gas cylinder
2 1 liter bottles with caps
The SodaStream Fountain Jet Starter retails for $149.99 but is on sale for just under 100 bucks. It includes everything minus the Soda Mixes and water. The mixes are only 4 to 5 bucks and you can make a lot from just one mix.
There is over 25 regular, diet, energy and caffeine-free flavors.
Design: The machine is lightweight made mostly of plastic and would fit with most Kitchen décor. I think it can hold up to years of use without much wear.
Function: Boy was I surprised just how simple this product was to use. I opened the box. Then I removed the back paneling which revealed a second bottle. I removed the bottle and then inserted the carbonator gas cartridge after I removed the cap. Once properly screwed on I reattach the back paneling. Half way their already.
Ok now we take one of the liter bottles and fill it up to the line. You can use filter water, tap water, or bottle water. Screw the liter bottle to the front of the unit. And now push on the top button until you hear a buzz noise. Then push it a couple of times more to hear the buzz each time. The more you push the fizzier it will be though you should limit it so you can get the most of the cartridge.
Now you can remove the bottle and take your favorite flavored mix and then add it to the water. I used diet cola. Mix it up a bit. And then let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and drink up your Home made soda creation.
Conclusion: This is a fantastic product for anyone who takes many trips to the supermarket to buy soda. You can save money and go green at the same time. Also there are the diet flavors that taste as good as the non diet ones. Plus the mixes do not have High fructose corn syrup which is bad for you. Overall a great purchase for you or as a gift for the soda drinker.
