I am buying more. I love to give useful gift gadgets.
My first try was to pour carefully, and recap tightly. (with the first bit, squeeze the bottle while you are pouring, to prevent air from "chugging" back into the bottle, foaming what is still inside and releasing its gas. Stop every once in a while, and let air back in the bottle. (It helps.)
Be sure the bottle is VERY cold before you open it each time. (C02 escapes from warm soda much more easily than from cold soda).
Also, pour the soda down the side of the glass, so it does not plunge into the glass and waste the gas that is in it. (this also helps.)
Be sure you put the top on tight. ( even slight looseness will leave the bottle feeling "soft" when you squeeze it the next day. A lot of gas is lost this way. (You may have weak wristed kids- if so, buy a cap twist off aid and have them use it to remove and RETIGHTEN the top.
I still wasn't getting great fizz at the end, so I bought a top with a pump in it to re-pressurize the bottle with air after recapping each time, but as they point out on you-tube, the partial pressure of CO2 in air is very low, so it would take very high pressures to keep the bottle fizzy by pumping it up with air. (It just didn't change that last glasses fizz). Of course, I used all the above tricks as well.
I had seen this device before, but though it was too cheaply made to work, and passed it up. But as they say, I was desperate.Read more ›
Just a caveat: when you first remove the cap from a 2-liter bottle of soda, there is an anti-tamper ring that is left behind on the neck of the bottle. As others have noted, if you leave this on the bottle and install the Jokari, you'll damage your dispenser.
Solution? When I remove the cap, I have a very small set of diagonal wire cutters that I use to remove the anti-tamper ring. Upon completing that, it' easy to thread on the Jokari Dispenser to get a proper seal with no damage.
As others have noted, chill the bottle before you do this, and pour out a small cup of beverage before affixing the Jokari to the bottle to ensure you have CO2 to push out the soda all the way to the end. Not sure why that works, but it works!
Four stars because I have to remove that anti-tamper ring on every bottle, but I love this device. The first one worked so well after several months of faithful service, so I ordered two more.
With some cola drinks that may not be overly carbonated at the start, you may find that eventually the bottle will never regain enough gas pressure to dispense the soda by itself, and you have squeezed the bottle as much as it is practical to do so. In that case then you have to loosen the dispenser to let air into the bottle. But unscrew the dispenser just enough to let air into the bottle while gently coaxing the bottle back to round again. Then tighten the dispenser back down and go through the squeezing routine again.Read more ›
So why do so many reviews state that you get flat soda, and no fizz? Here's why: You must be sure to depress the button all the way when dispensing the soda. If you don't the soda will shoot out in a high pressure fine stream, and all the carbonation will bubble out. Instead, immediately push the button all the way down, and the soda will come out more slowly. It isn't obvious that this is the way to do it.
Also, make sure the soda is cool (refrigerated) and unagitated before opening the bottle and installing this device.
Using this method, I find that even the last bit of soda will be somewhat fizzy (although less so that the first). You may need to squeeze the bottle to dispense that last bit.
As for the quality, I can only say that I've had it for a few weeks, and it's continued to work fine.
I've searched for a cheap way to have soda water around (I use it to dilute diet soft drinks). In the past I had to choose between making my own with expensive CO2 cartridges and a seltzer bottle or buying 2-liter bottles of seltzer water, but having the last liter be flat.
This device does the job.
