$87.00 at Amazon Also at SodaStream.com

  • Inset, Fizz, & Enjoy — Make fresh sparkling water at the push of a button
  • Includes sparkling water maker, 60L Co2 cylinder, and 1 liter BPA-free reusable carbonating bottle. Each cylinder carbonates up to 60 liters of water.
  • Energy efficient, powered by Co2 cylinder. Manual pump action.
  • Compatible with all SodaStream flavors and SodaStream carbonation bottles except glass carafe. Available in Black, White, Navy, Icy Blue.

You need to lift the clear plastic lever outward to its fullest extent before lifting the bottle to the proper seating area and push back the lever all the way back and let it seat it correctly. Once you’ve lifted the bottle up in there, push the level back and it will swing the bottle back and make the seal you need for the best carbonation process. Lift the lever back up to unseat the bottle and release any pressure. Very happy with our maker now!

2. Aarke Carbonator III

  • Compact & Elegant: The Aarke Carbonator 3 is designed from the inside out to be the slimmest, most compact sparkling water maker, with top of the line user-friendly engineering. Available in a range of classic finishes to elevate any countertop.
  • New Stainless Steel Precision Nozzle: The Carbonator 3’s most striking new feature is the redesigned precision nozzle, which is CNC-machined from a single piece of stainless steel. The result is a beautifully polished nozzle that produces a smooth, controlled spray beam.
  • Updated Damper-Controlled Lever, and End Cap: The lever’s movement is newly regulated by a rotational damper that allows for a more controlled release of pressure within the bottle.
  • Want some added flavor? Add a splash of lemon, lime, or soda syrup that you’ll enjoy anytime of the year. Try Aarke Essences and Syrups as well as Six Barrel Soda syrups for added flavor that is all-natural and low in sugar.
  • Forget the plastic soda makers of the past – when it comes down to performance, environmental impact, and standing the test of time, it’s no contest.

aarke - Carbonator III Premium Carbonator/Sparkling & Seltzer Water Maker with PET Bottle (Black Chrome)

Aarke is built like a tank. No cheapo plastic parts that I can see anywhere. Setup was flawlessly simple. Screw the cannister in from the bottom. Rinse the bottle and away you go.

3. Spärkel – No CO2, Five Bubble Levels

  • Spärkel is the only sparkling beverage system that doesn’t require a CO2 Cylinder. Designed for sparkling beverage fans, Spärkel allows you to easily sparkle and infuse the delicious tastes of real ingredients – into any drink – with no CO2 tank.
  • 5 automated levels to fit your taste: ① Lightly bubbly. ② Moderately bubbly. ③ Boldly bubbly. ④ An extra kick for juices & infusions. ⑤ Serious bubbles for cocktails & wine.

I like that I’m not throwing Perrier and San Pellegrino bottles into the recycling bin anymore. Plus I can choose the type of bubbles – usually we press level 2 for medium bubbles, but have also tried level 3 for big bubbles. Health-wise there is an upside – we can put our own fresh ingredients to flavor the water. As opposed to reading the ingredients on the side of a St. Croix can or whatever. And the machine looks nice and modern on the counter.

This is one of those items I didn’t know I needed until I bought and used it, now I am absolutely in love with the drinkmate. Very easy to use, and powered only by the CO2 canister, so there is no requirement to place it near an electrical outlet. If you find yourself buying canned sparkling water make the switch and save big money!

5. AirSoda Carbonator

AirSoda adopts the latest automatic pressure relief design to ensure that, when opened, the pressure in the bottle is balanced, which makes it safer to use. It can make sparkling water, juices, wine, cocktail, beer and more. No electricity is used. C02 cylinder sold separately.

It feels quite sturdy and well built. It looks much nicer than the other bulkier options. The push-down pump feels very smooth. No need to lean in with your whole body to press it like the other ones.
