C was so excited when we received the box. You would have thought it was Christmas! We couldn't get the Fountain Jet and the flavors out of the box fast enough. We were sent a ton of flavors, including Orange Mango, Cola, Lemonade, and some of the flavored water. C's favorite is Lemonade, while A likes the Orange Mango. Hubby made his own using the Cola and said it tasted a little too syrupy. (So the obvious answer to that would be to add less syrup, right?!) He did like the Orange when I made it. :)
- It is so easy to use, and only takes about a minute to make a liter of soda. Both boys helped me make their soda.
- It costs less to make your own. Each syrup bottles makes 12 liters of soda and one carbonator makes 60 liters of soda – so you’ll be spending only $0.83 per liter. No more waiting until your soda is on sale to be able to drink a sweet treat!
- It was kind of tricky to screw in the plastic bottle that screws underneath to capture the CO2. We had to fiddle with it for a few seconds before I got the threads lined up properly.
- The plastic bottles are not dishwasher safe. The manual says to rinse with warm water and throw away the bottles after three years. Not crazy about that... But the company does offer better models that have glass bottles instead of plastic.
Overall, the SodaStream is a great kitchen tool to have! I would recommend it. You can visit the SodaStream website to see where to buy your own SodaStream!
