Not only do I feel great about the less waste I'm creating, but I do feel like I'm actually saving money. And other reviewers agree:
"This is one of the best things I've ever bought. I like fizzy water and I like soda, but I don't like the cost, or carrying it home from the store, or the recycling aspect. So I thought I'd try it for 30 days and have used it every day since. It saves you time and money! I make a liter, then mix up whatever flavor I like. I get the fruity water flavoring drops. I liked this so much, I'm a walking-talking spokesperson. I bought one for my brother-in-law for a way early Christmas gift — and they use it every day as well!!" —RedDoorTreasures
"I love my SodaStream! The soda water flavor is perfect after just two pumps with the SodaStream Fizzi. I found it simple and easy to use. I'm a little baffled that so many people have screwed it up. My advice would be to push down on the button and hold for 2 seconds. There is literally a sticker next to the button telling you to do this. I pour mine out into smaller reusable water bottles and the bubbles last for days. This saves me money and makes me feel more resourceful since I no longer fail at recycling my aluminum cans!
One 60ml canister gives me approximately 2000 ounces of soda water. At 12oz in a can, that's 166 cans of soda water, which is 13.8 12packs. A typical 12 pack is $4 and a canister is $30. And 30/13.8 = 2.17, so it cuts my cost nearly in half and would pay for itself after the second canister!" —Carolyn Leduc
