Making your own soda at home is delicious AND easy with your very own Sodastream. But which Sodastream model should you buy?
I love to refresh myself with a bubbly drink. Being able to make them at home means I’m never worried if I’ve run out of sparkling water!
AND by making soda myself, everything becomes more economical and ecological – I save money with a Sodastream and reduce plastic or aluminum can waste from making my own.
I’m not the only one. Realizing that this need was being felt more and more, there are different devices and ways to make your own seltzer water. Of all my tested brands, Sodastream has been my favorite.
But, which Sodastream device should you purchase? What’s the difference between each model? I love making my own soda and here’s what I recommend!
How a Sodastream Works
First off, let’s start with the basics. How does a soda stream work? And if you don’t know yet, what is a Sodastream?
The business, SodaStream, has been around for over a century! Yes, that’s right – the business was founded in 1903!
Making soda isn’t some new fad. We’ve loved our bubbly drinks for a while now. But, the different SodaStream models are new.
SodaStreams are great for a number of reasons. It is simple to use and economical. They offer a wide range of inexpensive SodaStream products and different cylinder lifetimes (15 L or 60 L), so you can find the right fit for you.
But which Sodastream is best for you?
To help you choose the best model, we’re breaking down the benefits (and drawbacks) of each device.
The 3 Sodastream Models: How Are They different?
The Fizzi Classic soda stream ranks first on our list with its futuristic and trendy design.
Honestly, I think this appliance just makes my kitchen look “hip”! (Haha, but really…)
It incorporates a CO2 cylinder, which makes up to 60 liters of carbonated drinks as well as two 1-liter and 0.5-liter carbonation bottles.
When I got mine, I didn’t understand how it would work. But it’s so simple.
This SodaStream carbonates your drink or water at the touch of a button. It can be easily handled by both adults and children to prepare their favorite soft drinks.
The Fizzi Classic SodaStream works without batteries or electricity. (We’ve even brought it as a camping trip essential!)
This soda machine is affordable, and ultimately help you save money. Especially if you were buying as much sparkling water as I was!
Plus, no shopping. If you’re still debating if you want to get your own sodamaker – let me tell you – it’s GREAT to not have to carry around several bottles from the store.
And above all, you can help preserve the planet by no longer having to use these countless plastic bottles. Designed with PBA-free plastic.
An added bonus of all of the SodaStream models: the canister is recyclable. You can trade-in any SodaStream C02 canister.
- Great design. Minimal counter-space is used.
- Ease of use and maintenance / Economical in use
- Operates without battery or electricity
- Two years warranty
Even within a single brand, you can easily play the competition between its different products. But how is the Sodastream OneTouch Electric different?
Well, as the name implies, the Sodastream OneTouch electric uses electricity, unlike the original “Fizz” model above. This makes it even easier to use for all ages.
It has 3 fizz levels. With this model, you can expect consistent “fizzy” levels, unlike the Fizz. With the Fizz you hold the button until you reach your desired level of carbonation. However, this means that it can be pretty inconsistent.
If you want ease and consistency, this model is for you.
Despite a fairly significant price difference with the higher range models, it must be said that the Sodastream One-touch amazes with its multiple qualities, including its design. With its clean lines and modern style, this soda machine is merely beautiful and will fit comfortably in your kitchen, even in your living room or in the dining room.
This device comes with two Fuse Base Metal Pet bottles, whose design also goes very well with the Sodastream One touch. Suffice to say that your sparkling water or your soda will be reliably well existing in these bottles of 1 L each.
- Beautiful design
- Easy to use
- Higher price
For a device like this, the hygiene rules must also be observed. Indeed, this machine is composed of a glass carafe with a stopper allowing it to remain hermetically sealed and a bottle also made of glass. It also allows it to keep the bubbles for an even longer duration.
Unlike the others, it can be washed in the dishwasher without its performance being lowered. Thanks to the excellent design quality, the dietetics of the water offered is ensured. You don’t have to worry about preparation because everything is perfect. A great freshness is given to you during the tasting. It is an economic and ecological product.
The use of Sodastream Aqua Fizz is very simple since it is enough to fill the bottle (s) until marking with tap water. Then, it will be necessary to install the bottle on the device, this by a simple movement to clip it and thus lock it, then press the button to carbonate the water. Once done, you can serve yourself directly, or even flavor the water, with a Sodastream concentrate or a DIY Sodastream flavor.
- Glass carafe with stopper
- Dishwasher safe
- Unique proposed freshness
- Finely preserved bubbles
- Simple and easy to use
WHICH SODASTREAM MODEL SHOULD YOU BUY?
It depends on your needs and your budget. The more premium options offer consistency and other benefits.
I personally use the Sodastream to save money, so the Fizzi Classic is my choice.
