Having decided I'd like to get a soda maker, I surveyed Chow threads and looked at Amazon, checked with Consumer Reports and Cooks Illustrated online. Much information is not very current, so I want to get some reality check.
First, I get the impression that SodaStream is the overwhelmingly dominant maker in this are, so much so that finding out if there are alternatives--better ones would be of interest, of course--is hard to do. Anyone know what brand selection entails.
SodaStream itself has a gazillion models and packagings. In my case, I am interest almost exclusively in making plain fizzy water, maybe with a lemon wedge or some such added at table. Are the differences betwen the SodaStream models relevant to this basic function?
Thanks in advance for any updates and new thoughts on this topic.
