Mom in Training: Sodastream Genesis Review

Sodastream Genesis Review


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.

My Take:
I was a bit skeptical about the Sodastream Genesis home soda maker when I first saw it on the internet and in some local stores. First off I thought the price was a bit high, and it sounded too good to be true. But after having one in my home and using it for some time now I actually do like it, I would even say I like it a lot.  It's not just another eyesore on my kitchen counter, it really only takes up a small space in the corner.  I keep it out because it's just more convenient than putting it away between uses.  To be honest you actually with some of the flavors I can't even tell the difference between Sodastream and name brands.  I keep two of the reusable bottles of Sodastream pretty much always going in the refrigerator. When one runs out the rule is fill it back up with water and place it back in the refrigerator (you need chilled water to make the sodas).  Then when I see that it's empty I pull out the Genesis machine and make a new flavor. Yes the initial investment may seem a bit high, but once you figure out how much you are already spending on sodas and flavored beverages you'll see that this is so worth it. Plus you can get refills at many of your local stores you probably already shop at. For around $4.99 you get a bottle of Sodastream SodaMix flavoring which is equal to 12 liters of beverage. That's right around 82¢ per 2-liter. And think of all the 2-liter bottles you won't have filling up your refrigerator space, plus the convenience of having it on hand and ready to go at a moments notice.

This is great not just for at home, but for those that have limited kitchen space like students away at college or someone just starting out in a smaller apartment. The other great part is since you're making smaller bottles it doesn't have the time to go flat like a 2-liter can sometimes do when not being consumed quick enough.

You can purchase the Genesis machine (as well as others and supplies) on the Sodastream website.  And there is even a video of how it works if you have questions on that!
