SodaStream PLAY Soda Maker Starter Kit Review

With the SodaStream Play Soda Maker starter kit you can start making your own soda at home. This unit is among one of the most stylish options that you can find available when looking for a sparkling water maker or soda maker.

The unit is simple to use yet it is stylish thanks to the fact that you can purchase a customized skin for the machine to ensure it matches your décor exactly. In just a couple seconds this machine will help you to turn your water into a tasty and healthier option than opening a can or bottle of store bought soda.

The SodaStream Play starter pack includes a carbonator, a reusable bottle and 6 flavors for you to try out. This is great since you can try out some of SodaStream’s flavors from the get-go and see if they are something you would like to explore along with the soda maker machine.

The SodaStream PLAY Soda Maker Starter Kit will make up to 15 liters of soda before the carbonator needs replacing so it is ideal for those who don’t drink a lot of soda but still drink enough to want to make it at home. Then later if you like the machine and start drinking more you can always get the 60L capacity carbonator as it will fit into the machine.


The SodaStream Play comes with all the things you need to make your first couple bottles. All you need is some chilled water. This model is a low capacity model as it can only make up to 15 liters prior to you having to get the carbonator replaced. This means it is not an ideal model for those who love soda and who love to entertain. It is ideal for the small household that likes to enjoy soda every now and again but who don’t religiously drink it every day.

With your purchase of this SodaStream model you get the machine, a carbonator, a reusable bottle and 6 flavor sample packs. This is a true starter unit and a great way to test the waters if you are not certain that making your own soda is right for you and your family.

The six included flavors allow you to try out some of the more popular SodaStream flavors without having to purchase them separately at an additional cost. The machine works fast and features a sap lock system which is easier to maneuver than a screw in system.

The unit is convenient and easy to use and comes at an affordable price like a bunch of other models from this manufacturer of soda makers.

If you do a side by side comparison you will find that this model has a lot of the same things you will find on any other SodaStream soda maker unit but this one is definatley more convenient and sturdier than others such as the Jet.


If you don’t drink a lot of soda or sparkling water and are just trying out the waters then this is a great starter kit. This kit comes with a 15 L carbonator. If it turns out that you like this unit very much then you can opt to purchase a 60 L carbonator which can fit into this machine.

Going forward after your second carbonator replacement you will be able to get a reduced rate if you return the old carbonator when purchasing the new one. This helps to cut down your out of pocket costs as well and we all know that saving money is always a good thing.

So with the SodaStream PLAY Soda Maker Starter Kit you save money when you make your own soda and you also save when replacing your cartridges as long as you return the old cartridge that you are replacing.
