“I love my sodastream”

Written on: 11/03/2014 by gbenfo (1 review written)

Some flavors do seem to be a little off but that is what you have to expect you are buying Cola not Coca Cola or Pepsi. To me it taste like real Cola, so I like it. The Mount Dew version I wasn't impressed with but I haven't had a mount dew knock off that even comes close to the real mount dew, so no biggie. 


The price I don't care about, its drinkable. The flavor isn't horrible and here is the best part...... it's healthier than normal soda! I weigh 300lbs, I don't eat a lot but I drink tons of

If you drink large quantities of Sodastream you really should buy a Sodamod kit. Then you can just use commonly available, cheaply refilled paintball cylinders with the Sodamod valve adaptor. I refill my tanks for about $2 at my local shop.

“I HATE MY SODA STREAM”

Written on: 23/02/2014

None of the stores in my area have the CO2 replacement canisters, I have been to Bi-Mart, Fred Meyers, Staples, kohl's, and Wal-Mart they all say they have not received a shipment in weeks. WHY ???? I wasted $100. for the soda stream plus $50.00 on different soda flavors that I can no longer use because I can not buy the CO2. I want my money BACK!!!!!! … Read Full Review

“Not Worth the Money”

Written on: 10/01/2014 by Azkatfan (1 review written)

Any product that prohibits universality is doomed and the Soda Stream does that. The proprietary thread of the charger prohibits refilling the CO2 cartridges with any CO2, but only the high cost cartridges they provide. The soda flavors are all bad tasting and are worse than most house brands you buy in the supermarkets. Even the natural essence which is supposed to mimic Arrowhead sparking water or Crystal Geyser does not taste good. WalMart gets $9.99 for the three pack of these essences and… Read Full Review

I bought an aftermarket adaptor valve that screws onto a paintball cannister. Stupid cheap, easily available CO2 refills. Taste is subjective of course. I don't believe most people find it as offputting as this reviewer.

“measuring cap”

Written on: 12/12/2013

Love the machine -but for the older person or one with limited eyesight the dark caps with lines is hard to gauge if you are measuring the right amount . Maybe an alternative would be to have the amounts given so we could use a small measuring device instead of dark cap. Thank you for listening… Read Full Review

“sodastream needs a competitor!”

Written on: 22/08/2013 by Tobysgirl (1 review written)

Sodastream is, unfortunately, an arrogant company that needs some competition. Our soda maker lasted a few years, could have been repaired, but not with help from Sodastream. I now have too many empty carbonators and they will not take them back or refund the money so I am out $14-15 for every empty. It can be difficult to find the seltzer flavors and they are too expensive, so will try the reviewer's suggestion about flavors available in the supermarket. I will probably not replace the new… Read Full Review

“unfortunately disappointing”

Written on: 10/06/2013 by awortman (1 review written)

I had heard great things about the soda stream from friends so I decided died go try it. I should have done more research. My husband and I both thought it tasted "diety" the first time we tried it. I happened to look at the label and was GREATLY disappointed to find that the REGULAR sodas contain artificial sweetener, sucralose. Then I found that they have "naturally flavored" syrup with cane sugar, but those are twice the price for less syrup! Had I known this information, I would never have… Read Full Review

“Greatly disappointing”

Written on: 02/06/2013 by Catscratch62 (1 review written)

We bought the SodaStream bundle when QVC first offered it. It was mostly bundled with a lot of strawberry energy mix, which I cannot have, odd tea flavors, root beer, lemon-lime, and a couple of orange flavors. So far, nothing but orange is close to pallateable!!! And it had to be adjusted to get a good taste. I had such high hopes of making my own sodas and saving money. Also saving my family from too much sugar. The bottles they provide take in the flavor of the drink you mix in them… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/04/2013

there is a trick to it:

1: Fill the bottle to the line with water
2: Add 5 or 6 pumps of the sodastream
3: Tilt the bottle as you would do when poring a pint then slowley poor in the concentrate.
4: Screw the lid on and shake.
5: Put in the fridge to get nice and cold.
6: after 30 mins open and enjoy!.

It does more then overflow. It explodes!! That stupid machine exploded in my husbands hands (bottle). It left him cut to pieces and blood everywhere. He now can't even open a door without help. I would not recommend this machine to anyone.

“Diet Cola”

Written on: 27/03/2013 by RWich (1 review written)

The Sodastream works great, just like advertisement says. I have made seltzer for wine spritzers and loved it. The only drink I have tried so far is the diet cola. I was expecting that it would taste like Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi or even Refresh Cola from Safeway. No Luck!! This stuff was NASTY. It had an after taste that was bad and lingering. Luckily I just made 1 liter from the sample that came with the device. Try it before you buy it… Read Full Review

“Better way to flavor your CO2 waters.”

Written on: 17/03/2013

I tried the flavorings that are offered by Sodastream but was not impressed. So I was at the supermarket and thought I would try the newest thing out (Mio) or other water flavorings. These are small and have the ability to flavor a little or a lot. And at about $3.00 I get many more bottles for the money. So give them a try. They do not have (soda) flavors but you can get fruit, tea and many other varieties. I am quite happy with the Sodastream but wish the flavorings were a little cheaper… Read Full Review

“I really like the ease of making the flavored water ”

Written on: 25/01/2013

I really like the ease of making my own flavored carbonated water. I also like not having so many bottles to recycle from bottled soft drinks and flavored water. It is economical also, cheaper than sodas and flavored waters. My only question is: I have installed my second CO2 canister. When filling a new water bottle there is no 'loud buzz" as is supposed to happen. Anyone...any idea why?… Read Full Review

“I Like It ....”

Written on: 03/01/2013 by vrbango (1 review written)

I like water and also the carbonation of a coke hitting the back of my throat. I started cardio and riding my racer bike (50 miles 2 days a week). Anyway - the marrage of plain water and the co2 from the SodaStream is awesome! Low Calories and I drink more water now and that carbonation hitting the back of my throat, NICE! When I bought the machine, I thought the cost of a replacement cynider of $30.00 was kinda high so I was going to return it. I tried it for one last time, just water, no… Read Full Review

I have tried using less flavor and sometimes it helps.The regular coke taste like diet coke to me.I find it hard to determine the exact amount of flavor to use,and the exact amount of carbarnation. This should come with better instructions.This is made the same way that is done at a fast food resturant and it is hard to get the right mixture.

The taste is horrible, with or without the flavoring. Has a taste similar to what I think gasoline would taste like.

“convenient, but doesnt always work”

Written on: 03/12/2012

I have had my sodastream for a year. At first it worked great. But after a year it has gotten so that it doesnt always work well. After putting in the latest carbonator I have been having trouble with the o-ring not sealing properly. It does save money, but it is a pain to get fixed. A lot of things, like the o-ring the company expects you to fix yourself. Not very good customer service or support. But the machine is handy to have and does save a lot of money. I enjoy mine to make sparkling… Read Full Review
