Holiday Gift Guide 2013 | Soda Stream Home Carbonation System
I received a sample for review. All opinions are my own.
I have been curious about the Soda Stream for some time now. I was excited when Soda Stream agreed to send one for review… I was also excited to save money and be able to make my own pop at home whenever we like.
Opening the box there really wasn’t much to putting it together. The instructions that come with are pretty easy to follow and with a few short simple steps the Soda Stream was complete and ready to be put to work.
To make you own soda it is as easy as filling up your bottle (included) with tap water, screw the bottle onto the Soda Stream and press the button to carbonate your water. The more you press the more you will carbonate. I personally like it a little more bubbly so I give a couple extra presses.
First time I poured the flavor into the carbonated water I poured it all in at once pretty fast… whoops that was a mistake! I had a bubbling volcano that wouldn’t stop. My kids were amused by the mess going on. So I have learned to pour it in slowly and there is no mess. I do wish there was a little pour spout on the lid because it tends to run down the side of the lid and run off the bottom, but it’s fairly simple to measure and pour.
My family has loved our Soda Stream. We don’t buy a lot of pop for the house so as a treat with supper I will let the kids pick out their own pop and make it themselves. They get such a feeling of accomplishment when it’s that easy. My kids are 3 and 5 years old and can make it themselves with a little help to pour the flavor.
The flavors are great, I personally like root beer the most, my husband’s favorite is ginger ale, and my kids love the Kool-Aid. The only wish I have is that I’d like to see a way to label (and re-label) the bottles. When we all have our own flavor in the fridge some are the same color it gets tricky to tell them apart.
For any soda drinker, I think the Soda Stream is the PERFECT gift! The Soda Stream Genesis that I received is $99 and when you think about how much money people spend on pop now a days that is a incredible price savings. You can shop Soda Stream online and find the perfect Soda Stream for your family. I find their grid with all the Soda Streams showing all the functions and features very helpful to determine which is best for you.
Take a peek at the Game Day ad they wouldn’t let you see!!
