BabyCostcutters was sent a SodaStream Genesis to review! My whole family has really been enjoying this machine. The SodaStream system is simple to use and requires no batteries or electricity. This makes it great to put anywhere in the kitchen. The set up was very easy with clear directions.
One of the big benefits of having a SodaStream is that you can mix together a different flavored drink every time you’re thirsty. While you can stock up on one specific flavor if you’d like you can also purchase flavor variety packs. Sodastream was kind enough to send me a wide variety of flavors. We have found the boys love Root Beer, my husband likes Ginger Ale, while I prefer the Cola Free. They also included water flavoring, which is 100% calorie free!
Along side with the great savings you will enjoy from using your SodaStream instead of buying soft drinks you can also reduce your eco-footprint. Using the reusable bottles to make your sodas greatly reduces the transportation of plastic bottles even when you do recycle them.
When I read the directions at first I was a little confused on how to operate the machine……the directions tell you to press the button on top to carbonate the water until it buzzes three times. I did not understand what was going to buzz?! There is a buzzing sound the bottle makes as the carbonation is being added as pressure builds up in the bottle.
You can get the style and colors to match any kitchen decor. It looks great in my kitchen and the whole family is enjoying all the different flavors. I do believe my fourteen year old is enjoying the machine the most! In the past I have had to limit his soda drinks otherwise he would drink all of it in the house. Using the soda machine allows me to keep track of his soda intake and I know I can make more if he does drink all of it. 🙂
I have also found the SodaStream is great for when unexpected guest come over. I am not worried about having something they would like to drink because now I have all the choices a SodaStream has to offer.
SodaStream and its flavorings can be purchased online or at many of your local retailers. Bed, Bath and Beyond, Target, Walmart, Kohl’s or Costco just to name a few. SodaStreams start out at $79.95 and flavors start out at $4.99. You can also find it on Amazon
