First the CO2. The Sodastream 130-Liter Carbonator that is supposed to do 130 liters will actually only do around 75, exchanges/refill is $30 each giving you about $0.43 in CO2 cost for each liter made. Using the cheapest Sodastream syrup you are looking at an additional $0.42 a liter and $1.67 per liter for the cane sugar syrup. This gives you a $0.85 cost per liter ($1.70 per 2 liter) using the cheapest Sodastream syrup and $2.09 per liter ($4.18 per 2 liter) for their cane sugar syrup. These per liter prices are much higher than what you can find soda on sale for in 2 liter bottles. You cannot save money doing this.
The good news is by making your own syrups using snow cone concentrate bought bulk online or unsweetened kool-aid, pure Sucralose powder and critic acid bought from Amazon you can get the syrup cost down to as low as $0.20 per liter. Detailed instruction for doing this can be found online.
As for CO2 you options are adapters/hoses (at a fairly hefty upfront cost) so you can use soda machine CO2 tanks or a Paintball tank adapter (at a lesser but still significant upfront cost). Doing this you can get the CO2 cost down to well below $0.10 a liter. If you drink a lot of soda you will recoup the up front cost in 2-5 months and then the savings are huge.Read more ›
PROS: Cheap price for Sodastream models
Comes with the largest C02 cartridge- 130L so many months between C02 cartridge changes
Three carbonation bottles included
12 Trial drink flavors
Eliminates dragging home the heavy cases of Pelligrino bottles we used to buy
Ease of use even a child (supervised) could use it
CONS: Slave to the Sodastream money machine for cartridge refills and soda syrups (not everyone will see this as a con)
Flimsy cheap plastic body
Difficulty finding an exchange site that accepts 130L cartridges
Proprietary fittings on the C02 cartridge.Read more ›
Ease of use: Genesis
Despite being a sold as a 'step up' from the Genesis in terms of style, I actually prefer the Genesis over the Dynamo for its simplicity. I found the bottle loading mechanism of the Dynamo more complicated and ended up spraying soda water all over my kitchen a couple of times until I got the trick.
Time between CO2 refills: Dynamo
Ease of CO2 refill: Genesis+/-
The real advantage of the Dynamo over the Genesis is the larger CO2 canister (130 vs. 60 lit). I use my Sodastream multiple times per day and found I had to refil the smaller CO2 canister of the Genesis more frequently. That said, at least where I live, the 60 lit CO2 canisters are much easier to exchange (available at Bed Bath & Beyond for $15 and you can use a 20% off coupon). To refill the 130 lit CO2 canister, I will need to exchange through the mail.
Overall Recommendation: Too close to call - it depends on which features are most important to you.
However, it is a good deal if you just like sparkling water. Buying club soda at the store is not cheap, and the bottles lose their fizz if you don't consume the whole thing in one day after opening. The Soda Stream bottles do a good job of holding fizz even over a few days.
We mostly use ours for plain water and add a squeeze of lemon or lime after adding the fizz. I am not super impressed with their soda flavorings. They tout that they are HFCS free, but they use other sweeteners like Splenda and it gives it a bit of a unique and unfamiliar taste. It's not like they're using pure cane sugar. I don't hate it, but you won't be fooled into thinking it's the real thing. It's just a little different. But, if you're not super brand loyal to a particular pop, then this will be fine. But if you like a lot of variety, the syrup bottles are going to fill up your fridge.
The thing is, Coke/Pepsi are so cheap in grocery stores because of all the special marketing they do (like buy one get 2 free case specials, etc.). From a pure economical side, you're better to keep buying those as needed. If you're motivated by environmentalism (I'm not), then I guess Soda Stream is a good move.
The whole device is little more than a cheap plastic housing for a CO2 tank. Be careful snapping it together because I could definitely see the plastic cracking if you are careless. Once together though, it's easy to use. Requires no plug in and it's pretty streamlined to take up little room on the counter. Wipes clean and looks OK on the counter.Read more ›
