Sodastream Soda Maker Review & Giveaway!

SodaStream Genesis
On our quest to make more and more of our food at home, I’ve wanted to cut down the amount of fake sugars and additives in our foods. This doesn’t just mean the sugars in the food we eat, but also in what we drink. So, of course this means making our soda at home – just like I do our food. Sodastream sent me one of their Genesis soda makers to review and try, as well as several of their sodamix flavors. Making our own soda is quick and easy!

SodaStream Genesis

The Sodastream Genesis soda maker comes with a 12 pack of sodamix flavors to try, two BPA free soda bottles, a 60 liter carbonator and the Genesis system.  The kit comes with directions on how to assemble the system, but it’s really easy to set up and starting using it. Just remove the cap from the carbonator cylinder, screw it into the top of your Genesis machine and put the top on the base. Unlike other models your carbonator is completely concealed in the Genesis giving it a clean and streamlined look. The only other thing you need to do is give your bottles a quick wash by hand and let them dry.

When using your soda stream, it’s always best to use filtered water. There’s a couple reasons for this, the chemicals in your city water may change the flavor of your soda, and depending on where you are they could also do damage to your Sodastream unit over time.

Once your bottles are dry, fill them up to the water line on your bottle and screw them to the front of the unit. Press the button on top until you hear the “loud” discharge. How many pumps of carbonation do you need? That depends on how much you like it! The Cola flavor suggests 6 pumps, others 3. But if you don’t like the bubbles you can do less, or even more if you like the extra fizz! From there it’s as simple as adding a flavor to your carbonated water and “shake it” – really just rock it back and forth to mix your soda the bubbles will do the rest.

Just a quick tip so you can enjoy your soda quickly – fill your bottles with water and keep them in the fridge. Once they’re completely chilled you can add the flavor and drink immediately! Each bottle holds 1/2 liter of yummy soda of your choice.

There are so many things I like about being able to make soda at home. Besides being able to control the amount of sugar and chemicals in our drink, I like how customize-able the whole system is. With over 60 different sodamix flavors and 6 sparkling naturals there is a taste and a flavor for every soda and seltzer lover out there. Now add on the bonus of BPA free bottles, there is one more healthy choice for our family.

The reuseable system fits easily under my counter, and in my small kitchen that is a big plus! It also doesn’t require any power to run the system, so I don’t have to unplug one of my other appliances to use it. It’s a quick and easy way to make soda to go with meals and know that we’re making a healthier choice in our household! We don’t have to completely cut soda out of our diet, instead we can control exactly what we drink!

  1. I would like to try Diet Dr. Pete. I love my Diet Dr Pepper and if this taste anything like it I could save tons of money

  2. I would really love to try the cream soda for myself and maybe see if there’s something relating to a Mt. Dew for my husband.

  3. I’d love to try the root beer! My hubby would probably want the ginger ale. He complains you can’t get good ginger ale in Wisconsin. I love the idea that you can put in as much carbonation as you want. I can’t handle a lot of carbonation so I could experiment and do just a little!

  4. I would want to try Fountain Mist first. I drink a lot of Mountain Dew. Next would be Cherry Cola. That is my 2nd drink of choice.
    I have wanted one of these for a very long time, and can’t afford one. My best friend and I are talking about moving in together, and we want one of these. It would be perfect to win one!
    Thank you so very much for the chance!! Good luck everyone!!

  5. I either want to try Root Beer or Cream Soda! I really enjoy both and am interested to see how they taste this way!

  6. I’ve been eyeing the soda stream every time I go to the store, it would be so awesome to win one. I drink would love to try the Crystal Light, and Dr Pete.

  7. I would like to try the ginger ale or some of the sparkling flavored water! Omg Ive been lusting after this since it first hit the blog world years ago!

  8. I’d like to try the cream soda flavor…I love cream soda and being able to make it at home would be awesome. They have a way bigger variety of flavors than I thought they did, how cool 🙂

  9. I’d like to try the Ocean Spray Cranberry. Lot’s of flavors means you’d never run out of drink options. This would be a great conversation starter/ice breaker at get togethers.

  10. I want to try the Peach Tea and the Root Beer. I want to compare the Sodastream Peach Tea to the Crystal Lite Peach Tea packets.

    1. Ooops. I forgot to leave my flavor. I wanto try all of them but i think i really want to try the lemonade one 🙂

  11. I was completely against this idea at first (I was told that all flavors are caffeine free) but now I am desperate to try one!! My husband is annoyed that I said no for so long and now I’m saying yes, haha!! I would LOVE to try the Mountain Mist and Cola flavors!
