I bought one the other day, great buy
Actually, once you buy the Sodastream and Syrup required to make the 60Litres it will have cost you around £40... compare that to 2L for a pound of most flavours you could buy 80L for £40, asda have a 2x2L for £2 deal on now...

Then your next 60L of Sodastream will cost you £35, £19.99 for a 60L gas cartridge and £14.95 for 5x12L syrups, you'll still be much better off buying fizzy juice at the supermarkets or B+M and Home Bargains...

If you have a John Lewis nearby, if you take your old one back you get a refill for £7.99, £17.99 on it's own.

Anyone know the cost of the gas refills? Is the one at Argos the cheapest at £19.99?

If £19.99 is the best price then that's 8 Litres at £2.66. 8 Litres at Tesco is £1.40. http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=258016788

Yeah there's the whole 'eco' thing but it's almost half the price. Would be great if the Soda Stream price could be brought down.

Once the one that comes with it is finished you can exchange it & only pay the cost of the gas.

Thanks but that's all based upon the premise that you're using the syrup. I was particularly interested in carbonated water.

Further to the replies above, considering the price to replenish the gas is £10 (£7.99 if using John Lewis), then this seems a good deal. Hot from me. Have reserved one.

I was in Argos earlier today to pick up a previous reserved item. I saw a bloke walking out with one of these. Wonder if he saw the deal here.....?
you dont have to buy there syrups, I use it with the normal syrup and it wroks fine
Here I go again... sorry guys! Is John Lewis the cheapest for extra bottles?

EDIT: Lakeland have them for £4.99 but the delivery takes it to £9.24. lakeland.co.uk/147…les

Anyone ever tried using this to turn white wine into Champagne style fizzy wine? Could be very nice
Not just a eco thing - if u don't drive luging 2l bottles on the bus is not fun. Also the 2l bottle is more expensive as u cannot carry other stuff so incur another 2 bus fairs to pick up what u could not carry due to the 2l bottles.

R the refils the same as the ones that u got 20-10 yers ago or have they changed them?

BANG!!!!

seriously. it gets messy. wine everywhere. tried the heston blumental blue nun into sparkling wine trick.....lots of kitchen roll required.
This died out in the 80's for a reason folks, don't hype it up again!

I remember bad tasting cheap cola and other flavours + near-mold build up in the soda stream because you couldn't clean it very well (obviously we used to put liquid in other than water!)

The tizer was the best D&B was good as well. However u r right about the mould so tossed mine after u could not get tizer anymore.

Still have a few spare gas bottles for gasing up home brew. Thinking about getting one again to reduce transport hassle but not if they have changed the gas bottle.

lol, yeah get busy with the fizzy. Had one in the 80's, parents probly bought it from Rumbelows. Why would you want to bother now?
Last week asda had the syrups at £2 a bottle or £2.50 for a sample pack. They also have the spare bottles priced at 2 for £10. I saw this a few weeks back and paid for it using nectar points. Husband has been most impressed with the energy drink flavoured syrup.
Its for the people who werent priviliged to have one in the 80s like me
spendlesslee, thx for link as i know where to get cherry 7up 2 for £2
ahhhhhhhhhhh old skoool ... thanks op
this is handy if u are sick of semi flat 2 litre bottles of pop lying around. At least this is on demand.
It's cheaper to buy sparkling water from any of the supermarkets (17p per 2litre), than paying for the gas to make it from this (cheapest gas still 23p for 2l) and thats not considering the cost of purchase it the first place. Waste of money.

Thanks piggy.
Great, a first class ticket to see the future generation of our children with fuc*ed up intestines! YAY!
Lakeland currently do 2 empty bottles for a fiver. Probably useful since you only get 1 with this offer from argos.
Like the idea of it, but i know when the gas runs out that will be it something else just cluttering up the worktop & then will probably be rammed in the back of a cupboard until it finally gets skimmed in the bin...... Hot for price mind

That's very true, what I did once to get a spare gas cylinder is buy one of the early ones that did about 250ml glass bottle max form a boot fair. Then took the gas cylindes out and bined the machine.

Does this one use the same gas clynider as 20-30 year old ones?

Bought one last month (the pricier model, looks great in chrome!) absolutely love it, real savings in terms of money, convenience and legwork. HOT, you have to buy one!

Not at all. I dont have a car and live in the middle of the country, one mile walk to the nearest local shop. these are so convenient.

in other words your lazy with 2 much money to waste
Had one of these back in the 80's and the only flavour/syrup the family liked was Cherryade. Does anyone know if they still make a Cherryade for this latest revision of Sodastream please????
I bought my wife one, with a 2nd gas cylinder and two spare bottles a while ago. She drinks a lot of fizzy water. She swaps the gas cylinder over at Lakeland and pays, I think £6 to swap for a full gas.

Unfortunately, since I bought it, they stopped doing their range of fruit juice style concentrates which were actually quite good (and needed to be kept in the fridge as they weren't loaded with E numbers and preservatives) and reverted to the fizzy pop concentrates which aren't nearly as nice.

Does anyone know where you can get real fruit juice concentrates for this?

thanks!

I think the sodastream is better for the environment - you're not buying bottles of fizzy pop and filling up landfill with them! You get fizzy water when you want it, you don't fill up yr cupboards with gigantic bottles of fizzy pop either.
reserved one! got a 10 quid voucher for argos too so bargain!!!
hot on the price but these are crap.

Voted hot.
