When making a carbonated beverage at home you might expect there to be a little bit of pressure during the process, but probably not enough to make a bottle explode. Yet that’s what tens of thousands of recently recalled SodaStream bottles could do. [More]
If you own a soon-to-be obsolete Keurig Kold machine and haven’t snapped a photo of yourself with it to get a free sparkling water machine from SodaStream, there’s still time: SodaStream has extended its promo a few more weeks. [More]
SodaStream Offering Free Sparkling Water Machines In Exchange For Customer Selfies With Discontinued Keurig Kold
Just in case Keurig wasn’t having a bad enough week after announcing it would be discontinuing its Kold soda-making machine and offering anyone who bought one a full refund, SodaStream has chimed in to rub a bit of salt directly into that carbonated wound.
Though you probably know at least one at-home brewer who has gone to some lengths to buy all the equipment and materials necessary to whip up a batch of beer in their own kitchen, there are others who perhaps aren’t willing to go those lengths, but still like to be a bit DIY.

Whenever there’s a new kid on the block, those who already live there are bound to notice. But despite the upcoming arrival of the Keurig Kold (yes, that’s what it’s called), which makes colas and sodas, SodaStream’s CEO isn’t worried about the competition moving in on the company’s turf.
People who own SodaStream machines may soon be able to see whether or not the in-home beverage-maker can truly replicate a big-name household brand. PepsiCo announced today that it will be doing a limited test of making its pop brands available for the SodaStream.
Consumerist reader C. had a problem of a well, rather delicate nature. She writes that after receiving a SodaStream for Christmas, she was beyond excited to try it out, using a few of the company’s flavored syrups to make her own carbonated beverages at home. That excitement waned when she started experiencing an — how shall we say it? — ill health effect that sent her running for the bathroom every time she drank the stuff. [More]
