What’s the Fuss About Fizz?

We test the best selling soda makers around

Home soda makers are enjoying a revival from the days of soda siphons; now they are a great way to know exactly what you’re consuming, can help cut down on packing waste, and save you money.

So what do you look for in a good soda maker?

The type of carbonation is the most significant factor when deciding which model to buy. Most makers use CO2 canisters to put the fizz into water; this is the same method used by commercial makers. These canisters will need replacing when empty, so should be figured in to your running costs. Do shop around though as some stores offer a refilling service which will obviously save a lot of money.

However, you can buy soda makers that use internal motors to handle the carbonation process, eliminating the need for canisters completely.

Generally, the more carbonation in a drink, the stronger it tastes, and with some models you can select the amount of fizz you want according to your individual taste.

Most soda makers advise that you only use water and carbonize before adding in the flavoring of your choice. Using a liquid that the machine isn’t designed for can cause some pretty major issues, such as blockages or overheating, leading to invalid warranties. You can, though, buy soda machines especially designed to add fizz to juices or iced drinks.

SodaStream have cornered the home carbonator market and then some, and this machine ably demonstrates why. It’s simple to use, sturdy enough to withstand plenty of fizzing, and sleek enough to always look good!

What We Like

We love the ergonomically space age design, which sits neatly and unobtrusively on a countertop, just waiting to fizz our water for us.

It couldn’t be simpler to use, and carbonates quickly and efficiently. This is a generous pack that includes 3 x C02 cylinders, a  1L carbonating bottle and free lime and orange flavored fruit drops.

2) Drinkmate Soda Maker

Overview

This looks very high tech, and as we unpacked it, we were impressed by its solid determination.  The instructions are easy to follow, and it’s so simple to set up and start making sodas.

What We Like

We absolutely love the fact, that at a better price than Sodastream, this will fizz anything, from fruit cordials to carbonating iced coffee! It doesn’t take up a vast amount of counter space, is very simple to use and even plain water tastes good carbonated by this Drinkmate.

What Needs Improving

A couple of times we struggled to remove the liquid container – it just seemed to stick in place. However after prolonged use, this was no longer an issue.

9.2Expert Score

A smart versatile soda maker, perfect for livening up fruit juices and more. It was fun to experiment with various flavors to see which tasted better carbonated.

3) KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker

Overview

What can we say? The design of this is stunning. We have no words to adequately describe its sheer power, industrial lines…

What’s more, it was very carefully packaged, delivered on time, and seems well made and hard wearing.

What We Like

Not only does this soda maker look great and come in a range of bright enamel colors, but it works well too. Compatible with SodaStream products, it means that you can use the market leader’s huge range of syrups.

Simple and quiet to use, it’ll come as no surprise to hear that we like this machine rather a lot.

What Needs Improving

This is a sizeable soda maker, so it requires a fair bit of space on the counter. Other than that, the performance is excellent.
