The 60 litre has cylinders usually last for about 50 litres in real life and cost about £20 to £23 to buy (or roughly £13 to exchange). This represents poor value when you can buy sparkling water from eg. Lidl for 17p for a 2litre bottle (or 60 litres for £5.10).
So unless you can buy the spare gas cylinders anywhere for less than £5... I'm out.

No, they weren't missing the point. The calculations demonstrated that there is another product available at better value.

They don't have your bougie views to require fizzy water. Oh and apologies for your "ethnic" shop not stocking your particular requirements.

A better counter view would have been reduction in plastic bottles.

If you know you like sparkling water enough to buy a gadget that produces 60 litres of the stuff then you should also know to keep stocked up. I buy cases from Costco, £2.79 for 30 bottles... 10p a bottle, 20p a litre... 60 litres = £6

And to quote myself we have a Samsung fridge with a built in soda stream compartment and a sparkling water dispenser on the front and I still buy bottles!!!

Not all about cost. This is way more convenient, less wastage and no massive list of chemicals on my drinks anymore.

You pay for a soda stream if you want a soda stream. If you want sparkling water then yes you go to the shop and buy sparkling water. Different product is different. Personally I hate the taste of most sparkling waters but soda stream produces a rather nice flavour (out of my tap at least)

It's also FUN experiencing with mixing flavours in.

A similar comparison is PC to console for gaming. Console is cheaper and suits many people but PC will still be the choice for many because it's not always about price.

"Oppressive views" Shut up you 🔔🔚



Lol - funny how you found that offensive.
£35 with my partners Boots discount ... thanks
Ok, I take my comment back, I've just discovered you can buy a 34kg bottle of food grade co2 for £54 which will refill a sodastream bottle approx 85 times. That's about 64p per bottle. I'm officially sold. I understand I have to store a 34kg bottle but I already stack about 5-6 cases of sparkling water, so this will take up less space.

If you're unsure on refilling there's dozens of guides on YouTube.

I still won't be buying this though as I have sodastream built into my fridge, I've just never looked into it before.

No, other than the fact the bubbles can make you feel fuller so great if like me you're on a diet.

Does it come with a 60l gas cylinder or is this just the machine?? not sure as the boots page does not say
Apart from the 34kg co2 bottle what kind of adapter kit would you have to buy to refill the sodastream bottle?

That is actually not true, if it were just a deals site then you'd list the product and vote and that would be the end of it. The fact there is a public forum element allows for discussions and different views.

Genuine question - are Lidl’s sparkling water actually bottled in Afghanistan?

In what way are they Al Qaeda water? Is that the name of the brand much like Evian? I’m intrigued :/

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but the "people" who vet comments on here are supposed to remove anything political or religious. However that happens on a hit and miss basis. Probably according to their own views but in the terms of this weird place, that type of stuff is now banned. Sport next no doubt or anything that they feel like unless of course they posted it!!.
Picked one of these up when sodastream were doing them for £20 direct from them. Use now and again for sparking water, find the syrups aren't that great but a handy machine to have. Find the big 2L bottles go flat far too quickly!

No... It was a sketch from max and paddy - road to no where... Referencing the cheapest most horrible bottled water available. I'm surprised no one got it.... I'm more surprised by the backlash it caught. Some of you need to wipe away your tears and get a grip

I have a Sodastream and absolutely love it, I appreciate it may be more expensive than pre made drinks, but it means I always have fresh tonic on hand and I prefer the taste of Sodastream coke to "normal" coke, I was fed up of buying a bottle of mixer having one glass out of it and then going back and it was flat, problem now solved.
I use my Sodastream about once a week, is it for everyone?....probably not, if you want one then it's not a bad price.

Tempted... I used to buy boxes of cheap white and rose wine and fizz them up. Worked really, really well. Vodka and whiskey were dangerously addictive. Don't try milk though, there's something evil about fizzy milk. Love the fact you can get an adapter and large cylinder for refilling. £40 for a sodastream - heated.
We have been sick of all that plastic junk.
We bought Sodastream on Christmas and love it.

Is there any health benefits to fized water?


One thing worth noting is carbonated water is quite a bit more acidic than plain water (which is pH neutral, i.e. 7.0, lower numbers are more acidic), therefore, by default, carbonated water is worse for your teeth. I was horrified when I found out, but the chemistry makes sense, here's a quote from Wikipedia:

Carbon dioxide gas dissolved in water at a low concentration (0.2–1.0%) creates carbonic acid (H2CO3)[14] according to the following reaction:

H2O(l) + CO2(g) ⇌ H2CO3(aq)The acid gives carbonated water a slightly tart flavor. The pH level between 3 and 4[15] is approximately in between apple juice and orange juice in acidity, but much less acidic than the acid in the stomach. A normal, healthy human body maintains pH equilibrium via acid–base homeostasis and will not be materially adversely affected by consumption of plain carbonated water.[8]Alkalinesalts, such as sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, or potassium citrate, will increase pH.
We love our sodastream too, which was more expensive than this. If this deal was available I'd have bought it. We filter the water first, fizz it up at the touch of a button. The kids enjoy watching it do it's magic! Tastes great, no heavy bottles to lug about, no plastic waste, water stays fizzy longer! Great product. Highly recommend
