Carbonated drinks making machine - including gas and bottle

SodaStream drinks makers work by dispensing CO2 from a gas cylinder in the back of your machine into fresh tap water to create a sparkling carbonated beverage. Loads of exciting flavours are sold separately.

Offered here in grey, this SodaStream Drinks Maker comes with a full CO2 gas cylinder included with a starter pack. With this pack, you also receive a one-off 'user licence' entitling you to use the gas cylinder throughout the life of your drinks maker. When the gas in the cylinder is used up, just exchange the empty for a full one, paying only the cost of the gas refill.

You fill the bottle with water and a mix of your choice you then put it in the soda stream and it will fizz the drink for you.

In short, it makes soft drinks fizzy!

Ordered, heat

Get busy with the fizzy...

Another gadget that will be put to the back of the cupboard in 6 months time.....They also don't say how much the gas costs.Just buy a 17p 2 litre bottle of lemonade from Lidl and add cordial.

Have reserved, not sure on this though. Seems another bread maker type thing (Once the novelty wears off just stuck in the cupboard), Surely it works out loads more expensive than just buying a bottle of fizzy pop from supermarket?

Just buy Carbonated water for 10p and add squash, simple and probably better for you and cheaper.

Waste of money

Will it fizz up a milkshake?

Watch this before you buy



And This one, from our american friend, Jack.

All reviews seem to suggest that it goes flat quickly and tastes rather rank at times.

Also, unless you're buying the Gas canisters on the cheap, they work out more expensive then buying branded bottles of soft drinks. Certainly not worth it if you're OK with the flavour you're getting from the store brand drinks, as the soda stream is pretty much on par with them at best.

However, it's a nice novelty item that might keep the kids happy over christmas, at a birthday party or something.

Thats convinced me not to collect mine, I vaguely remember owning one of these around 20 years ago and i am sure that at the time the fizzy soon went out of the drink after being left a while. I will stick with the supermarket brands

We use ours to make just soda water - the concentrates won't be to everyones taste - they used to licence branded versions. Good price. Just bought the model in the video from Argos for £44. I'm sure unless the instructions have changed, you carbonate thewater (best from the fridge) and then add the concentrate, not the other way around as in the video.

If you were fussy you can buy branded concentrates from wholesalers that are used in the wonder bar machines (sadly in massive quantities). We have some concentrated ginger beer "Sweeto" from South Africa and it tastes great with that.

Great for soda water on a hot summers day with a squeeze of lemon in it. Not so sure you'll save money, but I guess it's environmentally more friendly than having your supermarket lug diluted drink in lorries across the country when you could do it at home, plus the plastic the drink comes in that may not get recycled etc.

The syrup/cordial flavour things are also all clearance in Currys.

I have used mine every day for about the last 2 years. I only use it for making soda water as I like it to be fizzy & the bought bottles of fizzy water go flat very quickly.

We love the Sodastream in our house. I would highly recommend the - Energy - Diet Cola - Cream Soda and Cherry flavours.

The Range have some of the flavourings on offer 2 for £4 and they are also selling a packet of the extra bottles £7.99.

Give over.

The syrup's are and have been £2 at Asda forever.

I use mine quite often.

I disagree with a lot of the abuse thrown at Sodastream so here's my rundown of common complaints and a potential response;

C: Another gadget that will be put to the back of the cupboard in 6 months time
R: for some people, yes, i'm normally one of those people, yet the sodastream is in very regular use

C: Surely it works out loads more expensive than just buying a bottle of fizzy pop from supermarket?
R: If you don't shop around it can be very expensive, but the syrups are regularly on offer and the gas is cheap, i can make 2L for about 65p putting it around the price of supermarket own brand, however some of the flavours are far far nicer than supermarket and in my opinion some are better than branded, this is of course a preference thing and your feelings may vary. Don't forget you can also control the strength

C: Just buy Carbonated water for 10p and add squash
R: this is certainly an option, you could even use soda stream flavours if you wanted to, however you're still lugging 2L bottles back from the shops (not easy in bulk for those without a car), you're still storing those large bottles at home wasting space and you're still throwing them away

C: All reviews seem to suggest that it goes flat quickly and tastes rather rank at times
R: if this were true nobody would buy it, however there are reviews on both sides of the argument as the taste issue is one of individual preference (a bit like coke vs pepsi) as for how long the fizz lasts, i find it lasts no less than normal pop does once opened, but if you're that concerned make only what you need (500ml bottles are available)

The fact is Sodastream isn't for everyone, but i like the vast majority of the flavours, i also have a small kitchen and so love that i don't need to store several large plastic bottles, i also like adding fizz to cheap wine and milkshakes and generally love the gadgetty nature of this retro product. I'd certainly never pay for one of the £100 versions of the machine but the basic models like this one do the job just the same

I just rushed out and bought one!!! But forgot to get any flavours! Darn!

Beat me to it xD Although Ashens was playing with fire by putting the syrup in first before fizzing up the water. I'm surprised that it didn't go everywhere.

Mum? Is that you, Mum? Are we back in the 70s?

Fond memories from the late 70s

Loved the Irn Bru

Again though, for taste, nothing will beat a 2Ltr bottle of Barr's American Cream Soda

I bought the Sodastream Source when it was on offer in currys at christmas. I was also told that I would never use it and it was a waste of money but I ignored all comments and bought myself the machine.

Well its never been out of use. The cherry is by far the best in my opinion and takes you right back to your childhood. Great, The cola is not bad either and the orange is nice.

It has surprised me how much i use it, cost aside it is very handy.


If you buy 2lt bottles you dont have
A; space in cupboards etc.
B: as much choice as having all concentrates in the cupboard.
C: The ability to make a fresh cold fizzy drink should you finish whats in the fridge.

So for me its a thumbs up and kids love it.

Can you put more gas by using this into coca cola or is it only certain items you can use?

Turf wars were fought over the Sodastream machine in the early 1980s.

Ahh just what I wanted to go with my "Under the sink collection range"

My parents had a soda stream in the early 90s but I was too afraid to use it myself (not that I was allowed) because the bottles were made of glass! then they got one with plastic bottles and the bottom fell off of the bottles when they were washed and had to be glued back on xD Every syrup for it we had was rank except the cherry soda

You can fizz up some water and use it to dilute any cordial, such as Vimto, Robinsons or Ribena.

you do that and it explodes all over the kitchen. Water in bottle add gas then add flavor

The Mrs likes Highland Spring fizzy water if we just put normal water in it and gave it a blast would it taste like her fizzy water she's buys?

These are fab. I've never fizzed water in mine but I have done vodka, whiskey and rum! Fantastic. Makes a cheap box of wine so much better. Tried milk once...fizzy milk is as bad as it sounds.

Find I save a fortune by not going.into the supermarket for cola etc then picking up stuff that didn't need.
