These are popular in Germany. The only thing I don't like about them is the plastic bottles. If you haven't done so yet, check out the penguin system which uses nicer glass bottles and looks slightly spiffier. Of course, we haven't gotten around to getting one yet...we currently buy a local carbonated water in glass deposit bottles by the case for less than 50 cents per bottle. It's supposedly bottled by nuns who give the proceeds to charity or something.


After going through a 12 liter case every 2 days during the heat wave, we bit the bullet and got the sodastream penguin, mainly because of the glass bottles. It tends to make bigger, rougher bubbles than the commercial "sanft" (i.e. soft) option we usually buy, but not having to carry cases back and forth from the little store across the street is a major improvement. Downside is we don't hear as much neighborhood gossip.
Summarizing, then, we assume that relational information is not subject to a corpus of utterance tokens upon which conformity has been defined by the paired utterance test.

just bought a sodastream, will it fulfill all my hopes and dreams?

 

 

with regard to carbonated beverages, of course, of course

Just don't try to carbonate anything but water with it. I kind of lost interest in mine after awhile, but I don't drink a lot of carbonated beverages, anyway.

 

There was an article in the nytimes relatively recently about carbonators. I will search for it.

I absolutely love mine and it has been put to good use. I haven't been able to handle plain water and all I've been drinking for the past 9 months is bubbly water with tasty things added. Usually just a few drops of lemon juice. You will love it.

Our SodaStream was the best purchase we made in 2012. It's a such a pleasure not to have to store cases of seltzer anymore.

it just arrived and looked as if it had been open used and returned before it came to me. i sent it back and am thinking about getting a soda siphon instead. no need for dedicated counter space and easily found refills. i wish isi would hurry up and bring back their twist and sparkle. it was leass expensive and easy to store and had extra bottles to store flavored sodas

Do folks replace their sodastream bottles after a while?  If so, how long a while?

I've never replaced the bottle, but I wash them thoroughly every so often (other times they just get a quick rinse with hot water).

Don't the bottles themselves have an expiration date on them?

Do you mean the carbonators (ie C02 cylinders) or the carbonating bottles (i.e. bottles that hold the carbonated water)?

 

I assumed the latter, but it seems everyone else is assuming the former.

they do have an expiration date which is manufacturer cya. presumably, wear and tear from pressure in the bottle can eventually cause the bottles to rupture, and repeated cleaning with hot water and/or chemicals can speed that deterioration. normal wear and tear will probably not cause a rupture

Yeah, I'm talking about the plastic bottles.  I wash them now and then with soap and water and a bottle brush.
