The Amazon picture has an 80ltr gas bottle so maybe it's more than 60?
Don’t think so. I got this bundle from Amazon as a Christmas pressie and it’s a 60 litre cylinder.
Does anyone know of a site to get all the pop flavours cheap from ?
Does it taste any good

Not sure of the exact differences, but the "Genesis" is the old, now discontinued model and the "Spirit" is the new version.

Didn’t know that. Both appear to be manual ‘press action’ and use the same bottles and gas so possibly just a refresh if the model range.

The casings are different and the bottles are different designs.
The gas bottle installation is simpler on the "Spirit".
Also, the "Spirit" uses a push fit "snap-lock bottle system", with a guide and the "Spirit" uses "1 litre BPA-free PET carbonating bottles have a lifespan of up to three years".
The "Genesis" uses a push and twist bottle and the casing needs to be taken apart to install the CO2 cylinder.

Genesis......

Spirit......

Just FYI. Always feel the weight of new refills, they have some weight. Twice now my mrs brought home sealed canisters but were empty. The retailer tried fobbing me off to Soda Stream but I argued my rights and got them to exchange them.

Yeh - this company and all companies like it should be boycotted. I certainly won't be giving them a penny of my money. Also, never buy their overpriced syrups - you are just lining their pockets and that's how they make a fortune out of you. Only worth using a sodastream to make interesting drinks that you can't buy easily IMO - things like elderflower cordial work really well.
Aren't these more expensive than just buying fizzy bottles? Replacement cartidge £15 (25p / litre) + syrup (83p / litre). So I make that £1.08 per litre?

Yes they are much more expensive. They are not worth it unless you wanna make an interesting drink you can't buy. Normal supermarket own brand colas have improved so much over the years that now they're actually pretty good and much better than anything this can produce.
This was junk in the 1980s and it's still junk.
With all the recent sweeteners being added to fizzy drinks, which I hate, would a sodastream be a viable option?
Honestly the flavours I've tried, orange and mango sugar free was disgusting, lime was ok, but just has too much sugar.

I end up just using sugar free stuff like apple and blackcurrant cordials supermarket own brands tbh.

Yeah, the price of running one of these is horrific. It's far cheaper to buy 2 litres bottles of sparkling water to use at 17p a go. Some people try to argue the environmental cost of not buying loads of plastic bottles but when you compare it to the impact of the plastic and steel used in making one of these it doesn't add up.

And the taste of the syrups is generally awful. You'll get the defensive "But we really like the Doctor Plopper" but really. It's still costing you more than buying the real thing.

I've carbonated lots of white wines and they taste rank because the carbonation adds acidity and completely unbalances the flavour - think flat coke vs fizzy. You can sweeten the wine but do it BEFORE you carbonate it because if you try adding sugar or powdered sweetner after you get a volcano of badness.
I drink a lot of carbonated water and wanted to get one of these so I could cut down on plastic bottle usage but it's just not viable because the gas bottles are more expensive per litre
Can’t believe these are still a thing
sparkling water is 17p for 2 litres art Tesco
buy that and put whatever dilute flavour in that takes your fancy

Assuming 40 litres of water per canister; 20 less plastic bottles per reusable gas canister used in the soda stream.

I used to do this a lot and it works well but can be tricky to get right. Recommend you get the wine you want to fizz really chilled before - I used to use cheap boxes of rose and white wine from France that had been kept in the fridge. Fizz it up in the sodastram until it honks and then leave it for a good 5 minutes to settle. When removing it, be prepared for it to really fizz up so gently (really gentle hiss) let the gas out and be prepared to tighten it back up. If successful IMHO it tastes great - it will be really sparkly, larger bubbles but I'm sure you can cope with that.
Recommend you do try fizzing a cheap bottle of spirits - I tried a whiskey once and it was amazing.
Don't do milk.

Excellent, I was going to aim for posher white wines though. A half decent chardonnay perhaps and make my own blanc de blancs, I feel like Les Dawson...
Good luck - do it somewhere that's easy to clean up in the event of an accident!

lol wut? You got me - I'm their marketer and you just got sodastreamed

Seriously, though... In case it's still not clear to you, Kayleigh was telling you that they don't want to buy/waste a bunch of plastic bottles and you dismissed it because of the cost involved. So, yes, you missed their point. For Kayleigh, it's not about the monetary cost.

You can also exchange instore at The Range if there’s one near you. On their website it says it costs £12.99 but people have commented that they’ve exchanged and it only cost £9.99.
