Do you drink soda? Do you know how much waste your bottles and cans add up too? Well when I went to the Housewares Show in Chicago SodaStream showed us just how much the average family adds to our landfill in just soda containers alone. It’s quite the visual isn’t it? This picture does it no justice, believe me.
Another thing I didn’t realize about SodaStream? That they have over 100 flavors to choose from!
Home Soda Makers
Making carbonated water and soft drinks is simple! Turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds, with no clean-up. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time. No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With a variety of colors and silhouettes, you’ll be sure to find a soda maker to match with any decor.
Now using the Fountain Jet is incredibly easy.
There really isn’t much too it. The carbonators slips in the back of the machine. Make sure you have one of the Carbonating Bottles near by.
That Carbonating Bottles needs to be filled up with water, but don’t exceed the max line. Then without the cover screw the bottle to the machine.
On top of the machine is a button. Push down on it hard three times. You’ll hear a loud buzz. This means you’re doing it right. The first time it may startle you’re kids.
Then grab the flavor you prefer. Fill the cap.
Very slowly pour it into the bottle. Then screw the cap on tightly and SHAKE. Crazy sounding, huh? Don’t worry it won’t explode when you open it right afterwards.
We love using it, in fact my 10 year old loves using it. We’re not incredibly big soda drinkers but Johnny loves to make a cup for fun on the weekends. It’s simple to use and a little goes a long way. It’s inexpensive and easy. Most importantly- it tastes great! Takes up barely any space on your counter too. Far less space then the cases or liters you’d have to store.
