What Others are Saying
Users enjoy the SodaSparkle’s simplicity, the fact that it is compact and the flavor of the carbonated water.
One user’s SodaSparkle broke after a few uses and there is a general discontent about the fact that it will only accept SodaSparkle CO2 cartridges which are more expensive than generic ones. Also, the flavors included were unappealing.
3 Thoughts on “SodaSparkle Original Review”
I got a bad unit. The leaks on the black pressurizing valve were unbearable, and it would not hold pressure once I pierced the CO2 cartridge. Well, I tried to send the item back to Amazon, but they told me the defective item was non-returnable due to flammable or dangerous gases, which are basically the CO2 cartridges. So, I have a faulty unit in my home, although I got one that works efficiently.
All in all, this is an incredible product, and I prefer it to my typical squirt seltzer bottle. But the 8-gram SodaSparkle cartridges and chargers are twice as long as the normal Leland chargers, which do not work in this product without adding a piece of paper or tissue in between the charger holder of the device and the charger itself. This is utterly underhanded and frustrating.
Also note from the photo that I have included, for safety purposes only, the PET plastic that has an expiration date that indicates it expired four years ago. So, the stock seems to be old. While I am not worried about it, it is something worth considering.
When I initially purchased my soda maker, I was stoked. I was super excited to have bubbly water readily at my disposal without the need to go to the store whenever I have a craving. One thing I like about this product is that it is easy to use and you can store it right in the kitchen’s drawer.
Based on various suggestions on Amazon, I bought the Mr. Fizz CO2 charger, but it did not work at all. I did not find the CO2 charger at a lower price. The cartridges were actually very easy to use since I only need to insert a piece of paper on the rear part of the cartridge. To be precise, they sell an affordable soda making system. So, strive to earn your profits by selling pricier cartridges.
