I've never had one of these but am thinking of getting a Soda ****** machine. Keen to hear from anyone who has had one as to whether they are any good? Also is it worth paying more money for one of newer machines or just buy the basic version?

We got one that was about $60 from Big W and its great. Would recommend it!

I've often wondered what they're like too. Are they any better healthwise (obviously they are still not great) than store bought fizzy drinks?

I used to have one and it was awesome, there's so many different flavours now too! I just had the basic one as the newer fancy one wasn't out yet but it was really good, so easy to use too!

I just bought one today! It's awesome. (The '******' model). We drink lots of soda water so I like the idea of saving all those plastic bottles being made and going to recycling. It was $70 at the Good Guys, comes with a cylinder that makes 60L. Cylinder refills are $12.95 the lady said, and they make up to 40L.

We got one for Christmas and we LOVE IT. We drink a lot of soda water so we are going to save heaps in the long run. Don't know about the flavours, we only use lemon juice or ginger refresher.

Re: Soda ******
Have one and love love LOVE it! It's in storage atm and I'm really missing it. They are a lot healthier than store bought fizzy drinks, and the fact that you can use anything to flavour the water is awesome. I just but normal cordial and use that instead of their flavouring. I but theirs as a special treat every now and then. Plus DP loves having just plain carbonated water

Best thing ever. We drink it plain, with lemon juice, with cordial, you name it. We estimate it works out around 25cents a litre for plain, where a bottle in ten supermarket is at least 80 cents. And we would go through around 3-4 litres a day in summer.

I've had mine for about 18 months and I use it constantly. I don't buy the flavours, I just use it for plain soda water or I make my own lemon cordial. Saves me so much money, and saves on plastic bottles of course.

They are great and can save you money and space on your recycling bin.
I bought one for DH (I don't like fizzy drinks or anything flavored really!) he used to use it for ginger beer till he got a home brew kit. He hasn't used it for ages because we keep forgetting to re gas it
DH is very fussy when it comes to fizzy drinks but likes a lot of the flavours. Not the cola one though, apparently coke is the only cola worth drinking
I usually buy the shwepps glass bottle cordials for him. If it wasn't for DH it would never get used.
