SodaStream: Revolution

We have a large family, which means we often look for ways to help us save money. One of the biggest ways for us to save is at the grocery store. Using coupons, not buying as much junk, etc. One big expense we have not been able to kick is soda. The husband feels like he must have a soda a day and will die if he does not get one. So I set out to find a cheaper way to supply him with his daily dose of caffeine and found SodaStream!

Making carbonated water and soft drinks is simple! Turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds, with no clean-up. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time. No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With a variety of colors and silhouettes, you’ll be sure to find a soda maker to match with any decor. We choose the Revolution model!

The Revolution is the first automatic SodaStream home soda maker, the Revolution offers breakthroughs in both function and design. Featuring One-touch activation providing a choice of carbonation levels (low, medium, high, turbo), an LED display indicating carbonation progress and CO2 usage status, and a Snap-lock mechanism for easy bottle insertion and removal.

As soon as our SodaStream arrived we ripped open the box and started setting everything up. The Revolution comes with:

  • Revolution soda maker, black with nickel accents
  • 1 BPA-free reusable carbonating bottle with stainless steel base and cap.
  • Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60L of soda
  • AC Adapter
  • Sodamix Variety 12 pack

Using the SodaStream is so easy. You simply snap the bottle into the machine and push the level of carbonation you want in your soda.  The machine automatically will start “spraying” into the bottle!

As soon as it stops spraying you can remove the bottle and add your soda mix! Then enjoy!

The SodaStream makes it possible for everyone in our family to enjoy their favorite flavor because there are over 60 to choose from! You can pick Cola, Lemon-Lime, Orange and Root Beer, or mixers, including Ginger Ale and Tonic in both regular and diet. Also, be sure to try a delicious fruit creations, including Orange Mango, Diet Pink Grapefruit or Cranberry-Raspberry.

I highly suggest if you drink soda at all you invest in a SodaStream machine. It will save you a ton of money in the long run and you will still be able to drink great tasting soda pop!

Buy It: You can purchase the SodaStream Revolution for 199.95 from!


  1. Since we aren’t a huge soda drinking family, it’s great that we could have an entire system on hand whenever one of us gets a craving!

  2. I had a soda stream and it’s a great idea and money saving for things like the energy drink one, but to us most of the flavors weren’t the greatest taste. I like this one has buttons though it looks so much easier then the original ones,

  3. This sounds amazing, and I’m guessing you can also just add lemon, lime and fruit as sweeteners for a less sugar-heavy soda?

  4. This sounds like a great money saver!! And to have your soda fresh whenever you want it is truly a bonus!! I also like that there are SO many different flavors to choose from!

  5. The SodaStream Revolution looks very nice!

  6. This would be a great Christmas gift for me! My husband only drinks coke, but I like variety when I choose to drink soda and sparkling waters and can rarely justify buying a twelve pack for just myself. This would let me save money, space in the fridge, and have choices!

  7. Gina Brickell says:

    I have heard about the soda stream in the past and have seen some of the recent givewaways. I would absolutely love to win this! My entire family loves soda.. As bad as it is for you, we all can’t live without it. Going through so much soda is soooo expensive!! It was even worse when we lived up north because they have that bottle deposit. Even without the deposit, we spend a lot in soda and it would save us so much money to be able to make it ourselves! And my son wold think that it’s fun!

  8. rebeka deleon says:

    i have been wanting to try this for some time now!

  9. Kimberly B says:

    I have been wanting one of these for ages – they are so cool!

  10. I am really really really hoping to win this. Ive been wanting one since they came out

  11. Carren Larsen says:

    My family drins alot of soda, which means alot of empty cans and bottles. Also alot of money. This would save both ways. Plus I think t would be fun to invent flavors by mixing them. Would love to have one of these.

  12. cristy layne says:

    My mom has this and loves it. its spo much healthier and since the kids can make it they think its neat so they drink it 🙂 and it taste ok too

  13. Jessica Houston says:

    I want one of these! Great way to help save money for family’s that drink soda!!!

  14. Fun! I have recently seen sparkling teas, and I would LOVE to try those on the SodaStream!

  15. Mary Gallardo says:

    These are so cool! I wish I knew someone who had one, so I could taste the soda though. I am really close to buying one, but don’t want to waste my money if the soda stinks. If it really is a great product, this would pay for itself around here from all the savings in no time! My husband and kids are always drinking soda!

  16. I bet this would be such a money saver for those of us who drink a lot of soda. I also like that you can choose the carbonation level.

  17. Fee (Phyllis) Roberts says:

    I would love to have this! I am addicted to Cola and I could save a lot of money =D

  18. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    Although I don’t drink much soda my husband drinks a lot of it and this might really cut down on the sugar and undesirable ingredients

  19. Huguette E. says:

    Your husband sounds like my 18 year old son, can’t do without his soda. This would be great to have.

  20. Jessamine Marie Ricafort Dungo says:

    I would love to try this one if ever I have the chance because we drink soda almost everyday and it would be nice to find an alternative to it. 🙂

  21. Liz Ticona says:

    This would be so perfect because we spend so much money buying soda at the grocery store since hubby loves mountain dew & i love pepsi! This would not only saves us money but it would be great by saving all the plastic and saving the environment. Thanks for your great review! 🙂

  22. courtney hennagir says:

    i love this machine!!! i can exchange the c02 canisters at bed bath and beyond and can use coupons too! i save a lot of money with this.i very highly recommend it! it would make a great christmas gift!

  23. Laura Grace Andry says:

    I have thought about buying one of these, but have not done it yet. They keep coming out with better models… I don’t know which one would fit our family the best.

  24. Beck's Mom says:

    I love my soda stream. It is one of the best and most useful presents I’ve ever received. I drink a ton of just plain club soda and since buying it, I’ve save the environment (and my back) because I no longer buy cases of Perrier.

  25. Carren Larsen says:

    I have wanted one of these since they first came out. My family spends alot on soda, and alot goes to waste, with this you make what you want. I also like the idea of mixing flavors to see what you can come up with.

  26. carol roberts says:

    i want one of these real bad i like ur reveiw

  27. carol roberts says:

    the black one looks pretty nifty i like that one

  28. courtney hennagir says:

    i love sodastream! i love that you can add as much or as little carbonation and flavoring as you would like. very cool machine.

  29. I have always wanted to try one of these. There are so many flavors I’d want to try!

  30. Stephanie Thompson says:

    I would like to have one of these also. I drink too much soda, so it would save me money. I reuse bottles already by refilling from larger containers, but would probably use less bottles with the soda stream. Great review for those of us who are looking into getting a sodastream.

  31. This looks kinda cool. I gave up soda some time ago but still miss the bubbles.

  32. If you don’t like the flavors, or you prefer real coca cola or mountain dew, another idea is to buy the syrup for coca cola or mountain dew (or your favorite) at Sam’s club or Costco. I’m not sure how much you would have to use, but you could experiment with that. I have been asking questions and looking at other reviews before I purchase, and they said you could use pretty much anything to flavor the soda. Mio, juice, what ever you’d like. You are not limited to the soda stream flavors. Use your imagination. The flavors are unlimited.

  33. Elizabeth Owens says:

    I keep seeing this everywhere!! I need to buy this and try it because we drink so much soda

  34. I would like to get one. Thank you for the review!

  35. I see these everywhere and really want to try them.

  36. Nathalie D says:

    I love your blog but don’t you think that people are really picky about “real brands”, like “real Coca Cola”, real “Sprite” etc.. ? Do you think that this might be a short term fad or have a lot of your mom-friends bought one of these ?
    I’m in Europe and read your blog all the time but this is the first time I’ve posted anything !!

  37. kristy edgington says:

    I would love one of these. JUst love all the different combinations you can make!

  38. Jen Rodrigues says:

    Great review I always wanted to try this. I love soda and soda can be very pricey.

  39. laurie nykaza says:

    This is an amazing machine. I love that you can make all different flavors to suit your families taste . My sister bought one and just loves it
