We have a sodastream. It was purchased as a way to get HFCS out of my husband's diet, but I like it too. I make seltzers with a splash of fruit juice.

We are quite happy with the purchase, if you have a Williams Sonoma or a Sur La Table near you, it is very easy to exchange the cartridges.

For those considering this and living near a Kohl's store, it is on sale for $79 this weekend and there is a one day extra 10% off tonight and tomorrow. And if you happen to have printed out the online extra 10 to 20 % off coupon for this weekend and/or have the $10 off coupon that came in the mail... Hmmm. I think I'm going to Kohl's today with my coupons and gift card.

I think they bought an inexpensive first one and it died of old age and over use. They then bought a newer, better one.

I've never been much of a soda drinker but my sister-in-law loves hers. They're on their second one.

I have a Sodastream. I use it to make stevia sodas. I'm sure they're a lot better for me than drinking hubby's Coke Zero. He'll drink the stevia sodas for dinner, so at least he's cutting down on the artificially sweetened stuff.

I was reading about smoothies the other day (shocking, I know) and one woman used that device to make sparkling water for her smoothies!

I have had a low end model for about five years and I use it more than any other household appliance. I love seltzer water and drink a liter or more every day. Totally worth the money. Am thinking of upgrading to the new model that lets you carbonate right in the glass bottle (not the penguin, but the cheaper one).

My daughter loves this machine. It's a big savings over buying soda in bottles and there are no bottles to recycle.

Sorry, I haven't seen that before, but it does look interesting.

If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

Does anyone here have any experience with this?

I have been looking at them for two years now. I don't drink a lot of carbonated beverages but I do love seltzer water and watch for it on sale in quart/liter bottles. It's great with a little juice added in, especially a squeeze of lemon or lime in the hot season. I have read a lot of great reviews and there is a basic model that is really quite reasonable. Mostly I struggle with the idea that I drink carbonated anything, but I get a lot of pleasure from it and I think this may be the year I go for it (not the flavor stuff of course).
