We drink a lot of seltzer water in my house, and because of this we’ve started looking into soda streams in order to cut costs—but also, really, to reduce our environmental impact. Even if you recycle, there’s a lot of energy that goes into recycling cans each week, and using a soda stream to make your own soda water is a good alternative to buying packs of drinks, especially if you go through them like we do. After sitting down and doing some math, my boyfriend and I decided that making our own soda water would be monetarily and environmentally beneficial. But with so many options to choose from, it can be hard to make the right choice.

After doing tons of research and going through thousands of user reviews, we’ve narrowed it down to five of the best soda streams you can buy online. One of them’s sure to make a sparkling new addition to your kitchen.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

SodaStream Fizzi One Touch

SodaStream is a well-known name when it comes to carbonated beverages, so naturally we had to see what all the hype was about. Turns out, the SodaStream brand is indeed so well known because of its high ratings for quality and ease of use. Users like the Fizzi One Touch because setup is super easy—and at the push of a button, you have sparkling water.

Each cylinder carbonates up to 60 liters of water with three fizz levels, and what’s great about the Fizzi One Touch is that it’s compatible with all SodaStream carbonation bottles except the SodaStream Glass Carafe. It should be noted that the bottles aren’t dishwasher safe, and if you aren’t near to a store that carries the product, then it might be a little annoying having to mail empty CO2 canisters in for a discounted rate on fresh ones. But typically this isn’t an issue for most people.

Pros

  • Easy to set up and use

  • Multiple fizz levels

Cons

  • Bottles aren’t dishwasher safe

Product image of SodaStream Terra
SodaStream Terra

The newer SodaStream Terra is a cordless manual fizzing machine that boasts a model design that won’t take up a lot of space in your kitchen. Unlike others, the Terra’s bottles are dishwasher safe, making it just a little bit easier to always have fresh bottles on hand. While this is a plus, the Terra is only compatible with the SodaStream Quick Connect CO2 cylinder.

Pros

  • Extra affordable

  • Dishwasher safe bottles

Cons

  • Not compatible with other cylinders

Product image of Aarke Carbonator III
Aarke Carbonator III

If you dream of sitting down in a retro soda shop, then the Aarke Carbonator III is the pick for you. This compact and slim stainless-steel carbonator is a bit heavy at three pounds, but it’s bound to impress with its elegant look. The Aarke is a manual carbonation machine that works with SodaStream carbonation cylinders without issue. What some people do have an issue with is the quality of the carbonator, and for the price they say that they’d hoped for something a little sturdier, as it does tend to scratch easily.

Pros

  • Sleek retro design

  • Works with SodaStream cylinders

Cons

  • A little pricey

  • Scratches easily

Product image of Drinkmate Sparkling Water and Soda Maker
Drinkmate Sparkling Water and Soda Maker

For people looking to carbonate more than just water, the Drinkmate sparkling water and soda maker is a great choice. Four colors to choose from means you can match your machine to your kitchen’s color scheme or add a fun pop of color. And unlike many other machines, you can add flavoring before you begin the carbonation process.

While the Drinkmate machine is less restrictive on what can be carbonated, it’s been said that the carbonator bottles aren’t the best quality, so you may want to stock up on extras just in case.

Pros

  • Can carbonate any drink

  • Color options

Cons

  • Bottles aren’t great quality

iSi Classic Mesh Soda Maker

If you don’t drink a whole lot of seltzer but want the option for your bartop, this soda maker from iSi is a great choice. Classic-looking with a mesh covering, this soda maker is on the smaller side, making it easy to store in your refrigerator without taking up any extra space.

The iSi soda maker is at a lower price point due to its size and capabilities, but even still, some people don’t like that the bottle is plastic and not glass—pieces must be washed by hand.

Pros

  • Extra affordable

  • Straightforward and intuitive

Cons

  • Pretty small

  • Plastic bottle
