This holiday I received this amazing gadget- at first I wasn't quite sure what to make of it-I thought geez another thing to clutter up my already over-loaded counter...don't get me wrong though, I am a total gadget geek!
I have seen the SodaStream in action- mostly at my Dad's where he must make at least three bottles of seltzer a day and thinks that this is the greatest thing since he acquired his other coveted kitchen savior: the panini maker. He and my nephew have the panini fever and I have to say the two of them are making some incredible creations.
Long story short: I am digging the SodaStream and for good reason! The savings over purchasing bottle sparkling water is the first thing- you get about 60 litres from one C02 cartridge, which works out to be about 25 cents a litre as opposed to anywhere from 99 cents to a buck and a half at the grocery store. And it's environmentally friendly- you re-use the special bottles so no more filling up the earth with used plastics. Oh and I should mention, no more lugging cases of sparkling water from the car! I use my Brita so I am getting filtered sparkling water and that is truly better tasting than the tap.
You can flavor your water if you choose (I don't- it's the purist in me) to give a more soda taste to it-hey....I wonder if those bacon tablets would work in this? Just kidding. Don't get me started on the bacon thing- that I will leave to another post!
