iSODA At Home Soda Maker

iSODA At Home Soda Maker
Sample received. All opinions are my own.

Outside of box

With Spring here and summer just around the corner, I have been craving soda. I’m not sure what it is, but somehow adding fizz to an ice cold drink makes it that much more refreshing.

I was more than happy to try out the iSODA maker to make our own soda at home. I love that unlike store bought soda, I can control the amount of sugar my kids are getting.

What's in the box?

What comes in the box? Inside was an iSODA maker, an iSODA carbonator, one 1L iSODA bottle and an instruction booklet. I would have loved to have seen some included syrup samples inside, but I was prepared with a bottle of iSODA Lemon Lime Italian Soda Mix.

carbonator assembly

Let me just say that the directions that come with the iSODA maker are so easy to follow. Start by opening the back of the machine and turning it upside down (on a towel so you don’t scuff the top of the machine), screw in the carbonator, replace the back and you are done.

water level

Fill your iSODA bottle to the water line clearly marked on the bottle then attach it to the machine. I was expecting to have to turn it several times to secure the bottle, but it’s only about a half a turn and it was tight. Easy peasy.

carbonating

This is where my kids like to join in. Carbonation time! Press the carbonating button on the top of the machine about 3 times. You can adjust the amount of carbonation in the water by pressing more or less times too.

Adding flavor

After waiting a few moments for the carbonation to disperse, you press the pressure release button on the top and take the bottle off the iSODA maker. You now have carbonated water.

Now you have many options. With having three kids at home, I am almost guaranteed that they will want three different flavors. That’s ok though because there are several iSODA flavors, made in Italy from real fruit and natural sugar, available.

Tilt the iSODA bottle and just squirt as much or as little mix into the bottle as desired. You can also add the flavor to individual glasses to customize the flavor for individual tastes. The lid on the flavor bottle allows you to have lots of control when adding it to the carbonated water. There is no messy measuring and pouring so my kids were still able to help with this step too. They thought it was great.

finished product

The iSODA maker allows you to not only make sodas, but I have been experimenting with adding the carbonated water to other drinks like fruit juice and iced teas. There are so many possibilities. We really have been having fun using the iSODA maker in our home.

There are a few different models available for purchase from iSODA. What a great way to treat yourself or would make a great gift for mom or even a fun wedding present. If you like soda, you will not be disappointed.
