The best of…
This older, no-nonsense SodaStream model long has set the standard. It makes great-tasting seltzer, it provides you with excellent control over fizz levels, and it’s “one of the simplest soda makers to use, clean, and refill.”
Unlike the SodaStream, the Drinkmate can carbonate drinks other than water—including fruit juice and wine—because of a special pressure-release valve. It uses SodaStream CO2 tanks and comes in red, black, or white.
iSi Soda Siphon
Best for bubbles on the go, soda siphons attach to the mouth of a bottle and carbonate whatever’s inside. This stainless-steel, ceramic-lined, 1-quart carbonator is made in Austria, and it’s “one of the best you’ll find.”
Aarke Carbonator II
Made of stainless steel, and available in several finishes, this Swedish-designed beauty is “worth the splurge.” It looks more grown-up than plastic soda makers, and the lever mechanism offers better control than a button.
KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker
If your KitchenAid stand mixer needs company, the brand’s soda maker is another fine premium option. Made in Ohio from die-cast metal, it’s available in eight colors and compatible with SodaStream products.
