The Power is an electric model and looks snazzier than the Jet. It is slightly slimmer than the Jet (<1 inch difference); height and width are the same. Instead of screwing the bottle into the holder like you do with the Jet, you simply place the bottle in the holder and it is securing without any twisting. You press one of three preset buttons to control the amount of fizz and the CO2 releases automatically (no need to hold the button down to release). Button one is indistinguishable from regular tap water. Button two is about the same as button one. Pressing button three twice produced the amount of fizz I generally like. The bubbles produced seemed to be of a finer consistency (more like mineral water) than those produced by the Jet.
The Power is preferable to the Jet under the following conditions:
You are physically unable to twist a bottle into a holder
You are physically unable to press and hold a release button for 3-5 seconds
You prefer finer or no bubbles in your seltzer
You prefer a slightly snazzier looking machine.
You like to use electricity
The Jet is preferable to the Power under the following conditions:
You would like to make seltzer in a tent or during the zombie apocalypse
You prefer heartier bubbles
You have under $100 to spend on a SodaStream
We prefer the Jet because it competently does what we want it to do, is a decent price and has superior bubble consistency.
The canister of CO2 that came with the product did not work (had no 'fizz' or pressure) which was VERY frustrating and almost got me to send the SodaStream back. Still, we went out and purchased a larger CO2 canister from our local HyVee customer service counter (exchanged old one, etc.) and all worked well.
Overall very simple to maintain. Need to keep some cold water available to use in the Soda Stream. You also need to be careful and add the mix by TILTING the water canister (otherwise the water will fizz and spill out of the top).
We have used this for a few months now and are very pleased.
Definitely need to go through some of the flavored mixes to find ones that you like (there are some we really do not but each has his/her own tastes). We both really like the diet orange and the diet cola. My wife likes the root beer and crème soda flavors (me not so much but I never liked regular crème soda).
This is an item that is superfluous (something that is really NOT needed or necessary) but boy is it nice to have and we use it frequently.
If you are new to SodaStream, these are machines that accept bottles of CO2 and allow you to carbonate plain, chilled water at home. This particular model is a powered model so you'll need an electrical outlet nearby.
The Power model is significantly more substantial than the Jet model I previously bought. This one is made partly of metal and has some weight. It's also a little thinner so takes up less space on the counter. It has a metal base that is rubberized on the bottom so it's very stable when in use.
This SodaStream arrives with a small, starter bottle of CO2, which you use and then take to a participating retailer to exchange for a filled, 60L cartridge. I would suggest checking to see if you have a nearby exchange location near you when considering buying a SodaStream.
This is extremely easy to use. Pop off the back, plastic panel and screw in the CO2 bottle. All you need to do is hand tighten it - no tools. Then plug in the power cable and snap the back cover back on. Plug the power cable into an electrical outlet.
Next, take the included, 1L bottle and fill it to the clearly marked fill line with plain, chilled water. NOTE: You can only carbonate plain water. You add any flavorings *after* it has been carbonated. Chilled water works significantly better. I keep a large bottle of water in the fridge so I always have chilled water available. You can use tap water or bottled water.
Push the bottle up as far as it will go into the machine with the white, carbonating tip in the bottle and then push it forward into the machine. The lights on the carbonation level selector buttons will light up immediately. Then all you do is select the carbonation level and it will begin carbonating immediately. It only takes a few seconds and you will hear a noticeable escape of pressure when it's done. Then remove the bottle and add flavorings or juices if you wish and screw on the cap to gently rock the bottle to distribute the flavorings.
There are 3 levels of carbonation available, which my family really likes. I prefer just a little carbonation and the lowest level is perfect for me. Most of my family likes the medium level but one of my sons LOVES the highest level of carbonation. It's so much easier to adjust the carbonation with this newer model.
The other models are manual. You press a button on top repeatedly to carbonate the water. This model does it automatically. The electric power, the carbonation level selection buttons, and the heavier, sturdier, metal build are the main differences between this and the less expensive models.
This comes with one, 1L carbonating bottle so you'll likely want more. BTW, the included bottle has a stainless steel bottom cap and a stainless steel covered lid. It's really attractive and much fancier than the bottles that come with the other models. You can buy them here or on the SodaStream website. Check both sites because prices vary and I got some good deals on the SodaStream site today with a free shipping promo code I found on the internet. You cannot use plain plastic bottles for carbonating water and these bottles are good for about 4 years before they need replacing. Also, you can't put them in the dishwasher or wash them with hot water so we use them strictly to make the carbonated water and to decant into a glass or a washable bottle. No one puts their mouth on these at my house since I can't wash them with hot water.
After you use the initial, starter Co2 cartridge, you take it to a cartridge exchange location and you will be get a filled, 60L cartridge in exchange for about $15. There is a mail-in coupon that comes boxed with this machine to receive a $14.99 rebate for your first cartridge so save your receipt. Depending upon the number of people in your family, you may want to buy more CO2 cartridges. You can buy them here on Amazon or again, on the SodaStream website. They were less expensive on the SodaStream site today so I bought two there because I have a big family.
One thing to note is that the 60L bottle refers to the number of liters you can carbonate with a full cartridge. We find that in practice, you don't get quite that many bottles of carbonated water. A 130L cartridge only makes about 105L of carbonated water in our experience. A 60L cartridge probably won't make more than 50L of carbonated water or even less if you use the max carbonation level.
NOTE: This model accepts *only* the 60L cartridge. The 130L cartridge will *not* fit. The SodaStream Jet model is the only one that currently accepts both sizes of cartridges.
Other consumables are flavorings and there are almost endless possibilities. I like just adding a little fresh lemon or lime juice but my husband likes other juices like pomegranate and grapefruit. You can also buy bottled syrups that let you make "sodas" or other flavored drinks. We also use those powdered drink mixes with good results, as well as some of the fruit Torani syrups.
We really like this machine because my family enjoys carbonated drinks and this cuts out much of the waste from bottles and cans. It's also quite convenient for us because we have two cartridge exchange locations nearby. If you like carbonated water and beverages, you'll probably like this, too.
UPDATE: There are quite a few different retailers that participate in the SodaStream canister exchange program but I have discovered that not all of them understand the starter canister. Both my local Target and Walmart refused to exchange my starter cartridge for a 60L canister, despite it being clearly printed on the started canister that this is what would happen. After contacting SodaStream, they directed me to take it to Bed Bath & Beyond where they exchanged the starter canister with no problem. I'm mentioning this because it could happen to you. If they refuse to exchange the starter cartridge, you'll need to take it somewhere else or contact SodaStream. Once you have a 60L canister, you will have no issues with canister exchanges.
