Summary

Sodastream did well to partner with KitchenAid in bringing for this soda maker. It matches well with all your KitchenAid products and is backed by a name that has been trusted for decades by homeowners and homemakers across the world.

The design is much like the one of the classic KitchenAid stand mixer so it is a familiar look. It is available in a wealth of colors so if you already own colored KitchenAid products now you can have a soda maker that matches right along. The item is constructed to offer a premium look and feel.

It is made from high quality materials so you know it is durable and is built to last the test of time. The machine uses carbon dioxide cartridges just like any other SodaStream sparkling water or soda maker. The unit has the capacity to accommodate 1 liter bottles and the 60 liter carbon dioxide tanks.

Comparison

This unit from KitchenAid is much like the KSS3121 model as well. The KSS1121 sparkling beverage maker comes in more colors and has a larger carbonator and those are the only differences.

If you don’t make a lot of soda then you can opt for the model with the smaller carbonator but if you know you will be going through a bit of soda and sparkling water then you will be better off with the KSS1121.

As it compares to other sparkling water and soda makers you will find that it is a bit high in price. However you do pay more for a more durable product being that it is made from steel while most other machines of this nature are made from plastic.

You are also purchasing a product you know you can trust because it is from a brand that has been around for decades, a brand that has made its name and one that is a trusted name not just in the United States but also all across the globe.

Verdict

The KitchenAid KSS1121CU sparkling beverage maker is a machine that runs off the SodaStream system. These two brands are large names in their respective fields so you can expect that this is a top of the line product. It is a bit more expensive than a number of other soda makers and sparkling water makers on the market but it is a lot more durable both in look and in feel.

Like other SodaStream units the KitchenAid KSS1121CU Sparkling Beverage Maker does require you to refill your carbonator after 60 Liters of soda have been made using the machine.
