The benefits of the SodaStream drinks maker, compared to ready made bottled drinks:
- Provides an endless supply of sparkling water, freshly made from tap water in just a few seconds.
- No more need to buy, carry or store large quantities of heavy and bulky bottles.
- A wide variety of flavors are produced by SodaStream.
- The ability to make sparkling water as strong or as weak as one likes, makes the machine an ideal solution for the family's entire sparkling beverage needs.
The SodaStream Jet Starter Kit bundles the soda maker with one 60L carbonator
When the CO2 carbonator is empty, you can visit the SodaStream web site to purchase a new CO2 cylinder as well as set up a cylinder exchange, which helps to eliminate waste. SodaStream collects your empty cylinder and returns it to our filling facility where it's cleaned, inspected and refilled.
The SodaStream Jet measures 16.7 by 5.3 by 7.9 inches (HxWxD) and weighs 2.58 pounds.
How Does SodaStream Help the Environment?
SodaStream is an "Active Green" company, meaning that consumers actively minimize their CO2 footprint when using the SodaStream system. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves. This differs from "Passive Green" brands, which use green-friendly production processes, but their products are not inherently helping you save on your daily footprint.
Because SodaStream uses water straight from the tap, the system makes traditional store-bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means, less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste and less transport of bottled beverages. Globally, 206 billion liters of bottled water were consumed in 2008 (Zenith International Global Bottled Water Report, 2008), and the energy required to make water bottles just in the US is equivalent to 17 million barrels of oil (Container Recycling Institute, 2002).
A family of four could slash their home soft-drink-related packaging usage by over 90 percent simply by using a SodaStream soda maker, are reusable for up to three years. A typical American will toss away over 1500 aluminum cans (and/or hundreds of plastic 2-liter bottles) over three years, while a SodaStream owner will use just one carbonating bottle or carafe that come with the home soda maker.
Operating without batteries or electricity, SodaStream home soda makers are highly energy-efficient small appliances. Appliances that work without electricity improve the environment by cutting down on the emissions generated by electrical plants, giving us cleaner air and ground water.
By operating completely on power supplied by the compressed air in the carbonator--an easily renewable fuel source--SodaStream does not contribute to environmental pollution made by batteries. Empty carbonators are returned to SodaStream to be cleaned, inspected and refilled with CO2 drawn naturally from the air. Carbonators are reusable as long as they remain in good condition.
Frequently Asked QuestionsCan I carbonate drinks other than water?
No. Only water should be carbonated in the SodaStream home soda maker. You risk damaging your soda maker, not to mention making a big fizzy mess. The money-back guarantee and the warranty are both invalidated if you carbonate any liquid other than water in your soda maker.
Why does the carbonating bottle have an expiration date?
Since the bottle has to withstand recurring pressure from carbonation, it cannot be used forever. The expiration date on the bottle must be checked and new bottles purchased as soon as the former expires. The bottles must also be replaced if put in the dishwasher, exposed to a heat source, or if they have become scratched. All components of carbonating bottles are recyclable. Check with your local recycling authority for more information.
How do I clean my carbonating bottles?
Carbonating bottles may be cleaned in warm water with a bottle brush and regular dish-washing liquid if necessary. Please do not place carbonating bottles in the dishwasher, as exposure to extreme heat can weaken the integrity of the bottles. Bottles stay cleanest when rinsed and then immediately filled with fresh water and returned to your refrigerator. Plus, you'll always have cold water on hand when you're ready for your next bottle of soda.
How long does the soda last before going flat?
The hermetic seal on the cap keeps your soda from going flat as quickly as ordinary store-bought beverages. If you make sure to close the cap tightly, and keep the bottle in the refrigerator, your SodaStream soda should remain fizzy and fresh for over a week.
How often will I have to replace my carbonator?
On average, the carbonator will make 60 liters of soda, and this number could be more or less depending on the amount of carbonation used when making your drink. A household of four soda drinkers might need to replace a 60-liter carbonator every 6-8 weeks, depending on usage.
Are SodaStream products kosher?
SodaStream products are kosher (OU) certified (OU kosher certificate). SodaStream seltzer is kosher for Passover (OUP). Also, please note that your home drink smaker can be used on the Sabbath.

I selected the Jet model after viewing YouTube demonstrations of the various models, and reading reviews of all of them. It appears to me that the Jet is more user-friendly and that the additional features included in the higher-priced models do not justify that cost. Since the machine has to sit out on my kitchen counter, the Jet, being smaller than the other models, is a better fit for me. I chose the red color and it adds a cheery note. The degree of fizz with the suggested 3 buzzes of the carbonator is perfect for my taste, and the fizz lasts for the week it takes for me to finish the bottle (I live alone). I'm also looking forward to experimenting with homemade flavoring syrups, instead of the commercial ones, but I mostly drink plain carbonated spring water. My primary reason for buying is for a greener alternative to all the plastic bottles and caps of "fizzy water", as my 3-year-old granddaughter calls it, and the Jet totally fills the bill.
1) The bottles aren't dishwasher safe. This is kind of a pain, especially when you're filling them with sticky liquid.
Note: There are other units that have glass bottles.
2) It's hard to get a consistent carbonation level. It says to wait for a 'buzz' which seems to be the gas escaping the bottle, but it's dependent on how tight you have to screw it in and how long you hold the button down, etc.
Note: There's an electric version with carbonation levels, but then you have to plug the unit in.
3) It's a bit awkward to screw in the bottle holding it from the bottom at an angle.
Note: There are other units where the bottle snaps in.
4) The bottles and caps and co2 canisters are proprietary and you have to buy extras to make the system really useful day to day.
Our unit came without a bottle cap, but SodaStream shipped us a replacement when we complained. So I didn't knock a star for that. Tho their email response was slow and the shipping was even slower (it's an Israel based company I believe). Calling probably would have been faster.
When it comes down to it I really would have been most happy with something that combined their two top models with glass bottles and carbonation level buttons, but that doesn't exist and I was loathe to spend $200 on one of those units when this unit was $100.
As mentioned in other reviews, this starter kit does come with a sample pack of flavors, which isn't very clear from the product description.
