Where to get the CO2 cartridge refills?

Pros: saves money over other carbonated bottled water
Cons: problem finding the co2 refills
"If you drink carbonated water then this is the machine for you! It saved me hundreds of dollars over the last years.
However, more recently the CO2 cartridges refills have become regulated which of course meant that the cost of the refill cartridge also went up. I used to be able to exchange/purchase the refills (exchanging them in the same fashion as the propane tanks for the BBQ) at 3$ per refill. Now it's about $20 per refill IF you can find a place to have them refilled / exchanged!! Good luck with that.
Do your research and find a place where you can get the CO2 cartridge BEFORE you make this purchase and it will save you much headache. Usually places that sell regular non- carbonated bottled water will also have these products.
As for the quality: if you use a Brita or other filtered water and make your fizzy water with the Sodastream you 'll have the best quality water... and even better tasting than some of the highest quality bottled water available!! You'll get hooked on this machine in no time.
This product is one of the best kitchen appliances you'll ever have."

Best Purchase of the year

Pros: fast simple
Cons: wish it had larger bottles
"We originally saw this product in a catalogue and thought it was a cool idea, but seemed a little too good to be true.
Well, after the demo we saw in-store; we knew we had to have it.
It truely is my best purchase of the year. If you love sparkling water and hate deposits; this will make your year.
Easy to use, and good value from the CO2 containers; it made more than it said it would. If you have a Brita even better. You can also control the amount of fizzyness you want.
I keep a stock of diet tonic and diet cola mix; so I am ready for anything.
Can't say enough good thing about it.
Cheers,"

Quick, Easy, Cheap Pop

Pros: quick and easy, cheap pop, choose your flavor at the moment, can control amount of fizz, can control amount of flavor (syrup)
Cons: aftertaste of artifical sweatener, finding full selection of flavors at retailers
"We have a different model of the Soda Stream but the functionality is the same.
We have tried some flavors from the variety pack and have been enjoying Rootbeer and Ginger Ale (our 2 favorite pops). On Soda Stream's website, there are lots of flavors available but we have yet to find a huge selection at local retailers (not really wanting to order syrups on-line). Watch the expiration dates on the syrups--at one retailer they seemed short (just a few months for colored sugar water?).
One disappointment has been the aftertaste of the artificial sweetener. We were expecting that in the Diet flavors but the Regular flavors seem to use Sugar and Sweeteners so we can still taste the aftertaste.
We have been keeping 4 bottles of water chilled in the fridge (for best results) and when we want pop, we simply carbonate a bottle, add syrup, shake gently, and enjoy 1/2 a litre of pop! (Rinse and repeat! L.O.L.)"
