Last Thursday, you may have joined us for the very awesome SHOP.CA #KitchenKravings Twitter Party. We spent an hour chatting about all the kitchen gadgets and gizmos that we krave – and gave away some of SHOP.CA’s hottest small appliances!
As for me, I’ve long had my eye on the SodaStream Soda Makers. I love the idea of mixing carbonated water with juice or a squeeze of lemon at home – it allows me to a) control the amount of sugar, b) forgo expensive sparkling waters, and c) give the kiddos a “treat” from time to time – they think anything carbonated is “pop”.
The only thing holding me back? The cost. Having seen SodaStreams for $200+, I questioned if I wanted to spend that much money on a simple carbonating device. Call me cheap (which my husband frequently does), but when club soda is on sale, it’s less expensive to simply stock up with the same outcome, yes?
That is, of course, until I discovered the HUGE selection of SodaStream Makers at SHOP.CA – including this very affordable Jet Starter Kit. Take a looksee:
At just $99.99 plus FREE shipping, I allowed myself to be wooed into the home soda-making craze.
“Simple, modern and easy to use. The Jet turns tap water into sparkling soda and seltzer in seconds with no clean-up. The starter kit contains the Jet soda maker plus 1 BPA-free reusable carbonating bottles with fizz-preserving closures and 1 x 60L CO2 carbonator.” <<– Okay now THAT’s a super good deal. 60L of soda for $99.99 to start, and replacement carbonators are only $30 when you purchase two (or $34.99 sold individually)… which eventually equals $0.50 per litre. Plus, the added convenience of having sparkling water for pennies a glass, with the option to purchase concentrated flavours or simply mix with juice/drink crystals.
(Side note: SodaStream + KoolAid = the yummiest drinks ever.)
But I suppose the reason we MOST love our SodaStream is the savings on the environment – our Jet Starter Kit prevents 120 x 500ml pop bottles from littering the earth’s surface. Win-win!
So you may be wondering… does it really work? You bet it does! With virtually zero set up and carbonated water in less than 10 seconds, you can see why the SodaStream Jet Soda Maker has found a permanent home on top of our counter.
Shopping at SHOP.CA was a breeze and the product arrived as pictured in exactly three days. I’m so delighted to have found this affordable SodaStream! If you’d like to splurge (main differences being design materials and the construction of the unit) you can check out all the SodaStreams here; however, having used the Jet for a few weeks now, I can attest that it certainly performs well and I have no purchase regrets whatsoever.
Today, I enjoyed a spritzer with SodaStream soda, cranberry juice and a twist of lime! HELLO!
What do you think of the SodaStream?
