Soda makers have become quite popular and they're a great way to make your own flavored carbonated water or sodas conveniently at home. SodaStream® seems to be a popular brand with consumers and they have a wide range of flavored syrups to chose from. Besides the machine which generally does not need electricity, you'll also need reusable BPA-free plastic carbonating bottles, which are specially designed to handle the pressure. The process also requires CO2 cylinders and of course, some flavored syrups.
Another beverage dispenser is due to hit the market this summer - SPRiZZi. While it will have similar features and a style somewhat like a coffee brewer, it's the home delivery service that may become the must-have convenience. Save money and enjoy chilled sparkling water, carbonated (or not) beverages and your own sodas at home. You'll also be reducing the amount of cans/bottles that end up in landfills.
