Cuisinart is a big company that manufactures kitchenware. On top of their soda machine, they also offer a handheld siphon. Unfortunately, users are forced to use their proprietary soda chargers which, unlike SodaStream’s, cannot be refilled or exchanged. Therefore, users must buy them each time they run out and these chargers are offered at ridiculously inflated prices.
