I’ve been reading A LOT about the Soda Stream pop maker lately. I looked at this a number of years ago but it was cost prohibitive. I’ve noticed that there are many new models and some very affordable. I’m a gadget nut so the Soda Stream plays right into that niche for me. I’m also a bit skeptical that’s just part of my nature. I saw that Martha Stewart recently featured the product on her show and it really has my interest now. I have also looked at the good old Soda Siphons. The more I read about the Siphons the less I am leaning in that direction. It seems as though the Siphons would be cheaper until you read more into the real cost. Hmmm, it might be time to look at other options. there is one item called the Fizz Giz. It is the basic sort of carbonation device but it still looks interesting. Of course I can create my own carbonator using a two liter bottle, yeast, sugar and water. There are a few other items needed such as tubing and modifying a bottle cap but it might be fun.
