The product is great - very well made and useful.

The soda siphon looks good and works great especially if you use ice cold water, carbonate it, shake it hard and then return it to the fridge for an hour or so.
Brassbass
Whenever I screw a CO2 cartridge in, all the gas comes out of the nozzle with a big hiss and none of the gas goes into the bottle.

Since there's so much discussion - both good and bad - regarding this product, I thought I'd put in my 2 cents...

Yes, I really like this item...but I was initially so-so until I figured out the right method to make the water as fizzy as possible.

Like others, I was initially dismayed about the quality of the fizz, however after about 20 CO2 cartridges worth of trial and error, I think I've figured out the best possible method to make the water very fizzy:

1. Use cold water. Yes... I know, everyone has been suggesting this...but seriously, this really makes a difference. I'm not talking about cool water here... the water needs to be COLD. And the secret trick that no one really seems to be talking about here is that the cold water needs to be poured into a chilled siphon! Before first use, put the empty metal siphon in the freezer to get it nice and chilled. After that, every new batch will stay cold since you'll be storing the siphon in the fridge before refreshing it.
2. after dispensing the (single) CO2 cartridge into the water, SHAKE THE CANISTER VIGOROUSLY 20 TIMES BEFORE PUTTING IT INTO THE FRIDGE. The instructions suggest shaking it 5 times. I found 20 works alot better
3. keep it in the fridge for at least an hour before dispensing for the first time.

By following the steps above, you should get a premium-level output. Sure, its not going to be ultra fizzy like the artificially charged soda can drinks, but the seltzer water is of surprising quality when following these directions.

Lastly, I wanted to make a few additional comments about this product that haven't been discussed too much in the other reviews:

1. The siphon is of high quality. It's very solidly built.

I read some other reviews here and on other sites and it seemed that the biggest problem this product has is that the water is not as carbonated as store bought water.

The first time I tried this product it seemed the other reviews were correct. The water was just barely carbonated and I was rather disappointed with it. However, I found that once you pressurize the bottle; letting it sit in the refridgerator for a while will really carbonate it up. To me it now "seems" just as good as store bought carbonated water or at least very close.

Probably the only complaint I now have about it is that I empty the bottle too quickly and I have to wait a while for another bottle to be ready. Besides that it works very well and I am happy with it.

Some may wonder why bother when seltzer water comes in bottles.

1. Makes excellent, high-quality carbonated water. For a TRUE diet soda without chemicals, or add it to cocktails.

2. It's fun and easy to make. Just screw in the chargers and shake.

3. Great design. A conversation piece. Nostalgic and Retro. Just like the bars in the old movies.

4. Economical. Less than 70 cents per soda charger for one liter.

5. Great gift idea.

Drawbacks:

1. The CO2 soda charges can be tough to find. Amazon had them, then they didn't. They may again. Buy in bulk.

2. The one liter dispenses quickly

Sometime last year I got fed up with buying sparkling water in glass or plastic bottles and then tossing out the empties. Although I recycled, I just couldn't justify the resource-intensive packaging of a single-use product like that. Not to mention the carbon footprint of a product shipped from someplace like Italy.

So I did my research, bought this soda syphon, and I LOVE IT! It totally gets the job done. It's best to start with pre-chilled water, then shake it vigorously after you've discharged the gas cartridge, then put it back in the fridge for about an hour before drinking. All these steps help the water to absorb more gas and make for fizzier soda.

I use filtered water from my tap filter (of course, no bottled water here...that would kind of defeat the purpose) and it tastes fabulous plain, mixed with fruit juices, or with just a squeeze of lemon or lime. Lasts for a few days in the fridge. Sure the fizziness decreases with time, but so would bottled soda water, so what would you expect?

Since buying this model I've also bought the larger version because it makes a bit more...good for dinner parties or cocktails.

I even ran the numbers once, and figured that with the cost of the steel CO2 cartridge (which you should and can recycle) you'll end up paying about .50 a liter. So GO FOR IT! You'll be saving financial resources AND natural resources and it's just the right thing to do.

I have been using iSi soda siphon for about 2-3 months right now. Overall I am happy with the
way it works. Although, when I followed the instruction the siphon content was coming out
of every pore of it. I then realized if I don't fill it the way the instruction mentioned,
but rather leave some space then the siphon worked pretty good. One drawback is that
the soda water has a taste to it!!! It gets the plastic flavor of the straw it uses. Even
if I transfer it to another bottle right after making it, it still has a light taste to it.
Another draw back which I think is inherent to all siphons is that, it does not maintain the
bubble for more than 3-7 days. The ones you buy at stores like Safeway keep for 2weeks.
Finally it is not as cheap as I thought. The cartridges come to about $1.14 which is same price
as Safeway bottles. I was hoping to make my own for lot less, say 50-80 cents a bottle.
Still, you get to make your own flavored drinks.
