Great - Once I figured out the right method, By A. Abdine
August 18, 2009
Since there's so much discussion - both good and bad - regarding this product, I thought I'd put in my 2 cents...Yes, I really like this item...but I was initially so-so until I figured out the right method to make the water as fizzy as possible.Like others, I was initially dismayed about the quality of the fizz, however after about 20 CO2 cartridges worth of trial and error, I think I've figured out the best possible method to make the water very fizzy:1. Use cold water. Yes... I know, everyone has been suggesting this...but seriously, this really makes a difference. I'm not talking about cool water here... the water needs to be COLD. And the secret trick that no one really seems to be talking about here is that the cold water needs to be poured into a chilled siphon! Before first use, put the empty metal siphon in the freezer to get it nice and chilled. After that, every new batch will stay cold since you'll be storing the siphon in the fridge...
Carbonation is rather good..., By Dennis Mabrey
August 16, 2006
I read some other reviews here and on other sites and it seemed that the biggest problem this product has is that the water is not as carbonated as store bought water.The first time I tried this product it seemed the other reviews were correct. The water was just barely carbonated and I was rather disappointed with it. However, I found that once you pressurize the bottle; letting it sit in the refridgerator for a while will really carbonate it up. To me it now 'seems' just as good as store bought carbonated water or at least very close.Probably the only complaint I now have about it is that I empty the bottle too quickly and I have to wait a while for another bottle to be ready. Besides that it works very well and I am happy with it.
Old way still the best, By TonyCoach

Some may wonder why bother when seltzer water comes in bottles.1. Makes excellent, high-quality carbonated water. For a TRUE diet soda without chemicals, or add it to cocktails.2. It's fun and easy to make. Just screw in the chargers and shake.3. Great design. A conversation piece. Nostalgic and Retro. Just like the bars in the old movies.4. Economical. Less than 70 cents per soda charger for one liter.5. Great gift idea.Drawbacks:1. The CO2 soda charges can be tough to find. Amazon had them, then they didn't. They may again. Buy in bulk.2. The one liter dispenses quickly
