£20 for a bottle of gas that does 60 litres. I make that 33p a litre whereas a bottle of 2l sparkling water is about 20p. Just failing to see the point even at this price

Agreed, seemed like a pretty good deal until I saw the price of the canisters.

You can buy 24 cans of coke in tesco for 6 quid

Agreed, however it's MUCH more fun to make it with a soda stream!!

Heat from me as it's a good deal for what it is!.

Put water in a bottle, put bottle in machine, press button.

If you consider that fun you need to get out more ;)

I have to admit I always fancied having one when I remember the 80's advert. However when you grow up you've got to think about the space, etc. Also not only is it 33p for the gas per litre but you've also got to pay for the syrup which as far as I can tell is no longer official Coca Cola (it used to be) and costs £3 and makes 12 litres.

So its 25p a litre for the syrup and 33p for the gas, and what you're making is just cheap knock off coca cola. I make it £1.16 for 2 litres of the stuff, cheap pop in Morrisons is about 50p and not all that bad to be honest, proper bottles of Coke are 4 for £4 at the minute.

Its a very high premium to pay (33p a litre) to have the faff of making it yourself

The cylinder with the old one as exchange is a tenner, less if you shop around, http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/8424956.htm

Lakeland sell replacement cylinders for £7.99 - you just bring your old one back and they give you a new one. That's 13p per litre. The syrups are £2.99 each for 12 litres - that's 25p per litre. All in all, you're paying 76p for 2 litres. Admittedly, the coke is pants, but they do have some really nice flavours - the lemonade is one of my favourites. Many people also like the tonic. They do some really nice fruit flavours as well - They do a gorgeous Raspberry and Cranberry drink.

They can save you money - 76p for 2 litres isn't bad at all, aslong as you're not buying it for the coke. Plus, you don't have the hassle of storing 2 litre bottles or carting them home whilst shopping. I'm a big fan of soda stream - just make sure you try some of the different drinks they do and it might sway a few more people.

Hot from me by the way - £25 is a bargain for a soda stream.

Forget the comparisons with coke / lemonade and sparkling water, think creatively - carbonated Gin anyone, or a sparkly Merlot?

I used to fight wars with other kids to get my hands on the Soda Stream machine in the 1980s.

I've ordered this, Argos also have a 6 pack of the lemonade 500ml syrup for £11.88

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/8430476/Trail/searchtext%3ESODASTREAM.htm

Considering we usually spend £1 + per 2 litre bottle of pop, i've just spent £39 on enough to make 84 litres, including the cost of the equipment.
#14
No you spend £1+ on decent name brand pop, cheap lemonade is about 40p for 2 litres. You'd save even more if you just started buying cheap pop from the supermarket

Yes I buy 'Brand' pop usually, I certianly wouldn't class it as 'decent' as it's no good for you, the amount of plastic bottles we throw away/recycle is shameful, and i'm sick of lugging them from the shop.

Even if I bought cheap nasty pop that we'd end up throwing away at 40p a bottle, that's still £16.80 for the same amount I can make out of the syrup i've just purchased for about £14.00.

With this I can make a bit of pop when I fancy, Admittedly i'm no eco-activist or anything, but the less pound coins I hand over at the supermarket the happier I am.

Blast. Bought one last week for £39.99 Thoght I had a good deal with a free sampler pack.
To those who don't get it....
I live alone. I make up a couple of litre bottles in the fridge. It takes all of thirty seconds and tastes pretty good. No more empty plastic bottles, no flat half bottles, no lugging the stuff from the supermarket, good choice of flavours and you can make up your own drink ideas.

How have you come up with making flat tap water?

When i've purchased enough syrup to make 84 Litres?

I guess i'll be doing what millions of other users will be doing, when the gas cartridge runs out i'll be using their recycling programme.

Hardly rocket science.

So your figures were wrong as the replacement gas isn't free. On another note I was offered one of these free with a full gas bottle the other day. Turned it down. After reading the fizzy gin post though I think I should have taken it, used it and binned it.

No my figures weren't wrong, they would have been wrong if I had included the replacement gas and got the figures wrong.

This site always amazes me, people here slagging off this machine as making 'expensive' pop, yet today £7 for 36 cans of coca cola is in the top ten hot deals. It's equivalent to 11.9 litres at nearly 60 pence a litre, not including the cost of the extra petrol to carry the weight of 12 litres of liquid back from the shop.

This machine would make 12 litres for £4.15, £2.49 for syrup and £1.66 worth of the CO2 from the canister i.e. 35p per litre. It would be this price for the estimated ten year life of the machine therefore returning your initial investment of £24.99 quickly.

The more salient point on cost is quality of ingredients, the Sodastream syrup doesn't use Glucose/Fructose syrup, otherwise called High Fructose Corn Syrup, which is used in the coca cola because it's dirt cheap compared to sugar; it's also worse for you than the more expensive sugar or splenda i.e. sucralose used by sodastream in their syrups.

So which is it, short term thinking or a lack of basic arithmetic by those voting the coca cola deal scorching hot?
#22
Oh, if you bought one and you wanted extra water bottles, lakeland has them on offer at two for £4.99 instead of the £12.99 argos charge.

Lakeland are also cheaper for the refills at £8.29, if you ring sodastream on the 0800 0858373 freephone number to get a returns label instead of the standard expensive 0845 one listed.

1st 60 litres of juice costs £0.799/ltr

From then on its £0.374/ltr.

Cost of machine & 60ltrs worth of gas = £24.99
Starter pack 12 flavours syrup (giving 12 litres) = £12.99
4 packs syrup @ £2.49 ea. (48 litres) = £9.96, total £47.94 making 60 litres = £0.799/ltr

Replacement gas canister (60 litres) = £9.99
5 packs syrup @ £2.49 ea. (60 litres) = 12.45, total £22.44 making 60 litres = £0.374/ltr

Obviously using current Argos prices which could fluctuate, similarily you should be able to find the syrup cheaper.
Also I've included the more expensive starter pack of syrup @ £12.99 for 12 litres, IMO newbies to Sodastream should try this so not to waste whole bottles it turns out they don't like.

I've opted for one, if nothing else it'll be a novelty for the kids and will cut done on the embarassing amount of plastic bottles we go through..

1st 60 litres can be had for £0.58/ltr

From then on £0.33/ltr

Concentrate found here for £2.00 per bottle (giving 12 ltrs) delivered free to store.

Cost of machine incl 60ltrs worth of gas = £24.99
5 x bottles concentrate @ £2.00 = £10.00, total £34.99 making 60 litres = £0.58/ltr

Replacement gas canister (60 ltrs) = £9.99 (can't seem to find it cheaper)
5 bottles concentrate @ £2.00 = £10.00. total £19.99 making 60 ltrs = £0.33/ltr.
