Killer Kitchenware: Sodastream Fountain Jet

posted on January 18, 2009 at 9:13 am
We drink a lot of sparkling water in this house. LaCroix has been our favorite for a while now, because it is much much cheaper than Perrier or San Pellegrino. However, I feel guilty about all the cans and bottles and get tired of taking the empties to the recycling bin. Well, we’re not buying water ever again because I found the ultimate solution. Let me introduce you to my favorite new toy, the Sodastream Fountain Jet
 
It really is that simple. There are different models to choose from, but a friend insisted the Fountain Jet (the cheapest) was the best one. I haven’t found any problems with it thus far. We just use purified water from our Brita pitcher and carbonate away. The instructions suggest 3 pumps, but you can adjust depending on your bubble preference. I am loving this thing!

    My boyfriend’s roommate has one of these but since the cartridge ran out he hasn’t gotten a new one! We mainly like it to carbonate liquor, because once you dilute a coke with rum, it’s just not the same, you know? This way, we have bubbles galore! Too bad the roommate didn’t want us using it. 🙁 If I buy one myself, can we please start an Atlanta Soda Club…Club?!

    I just checked it out, and it looks good, however I would not use their flavours. Even their ‘regular’ flavours contain Splenda in addition to sugar. I won’t use artificial sweeteners at all. In my opinion they’re just as bad as HFCS. Therefore, I would have to use something else if I wanted flavours. Just to have sparkling water, this would be great.

    We just bought it for the water. They did send a flavor sampler with our order, but we weren’t keen on the ingredients either.

    I’m a LaCroix junkie and have had the same issue with all the cans. This looks fantastic, but when I want my Berry LaCroix (2.5 cases in my house right now!), wonder what I could do? Maybe just pop a strawberry or something in the glass?

    Jaye: As some one mentioned above, the company does offer flavors, but they are artificially sweetened. We tried the root beer flavor and it was fine. Just not our bag. You could try adding some sort of natural concentrate or one of those POM fruit juices after carbonation if you are jonesing for berry flavor.

    Hi

    I’m from Sodastream (brand name changed from Soda-Club in the past year). We make the Fountain Jet and other models, including the Penguin machine which uses glass carafes.

    I just wanted to let people know that we do offer a line of all-natural fruit essences called Mywater…in lemon-lime, orange and berry flavors. Mywater contains no natural or artificial sweeteners of any kind…just all-natural flavor essence to give your sparkling water a hint of fruit.

    Gerard,
    Thanks for the information. I have made the change to the brand name in the post.

    You could also try TrueLemon or TrueLime (there’s also a TrueOrange but I find it has a nasty chalky aftertaste that’s a little too reminiscent of baby aspirin).
