SodaStream Fizzi OneTouch
The best soda maker
This automated soda maker offers a wide range of bubbles (from lightly carbonated to super fizzy) and makes great-tasting seltzer.
For years, SodaStream has dominated the world of home soda makers. After looking for any other worthy competitors, we’ve found that the company still makes machines that work better than any other store-bought option we’ve encountered. We think the Fizzi OneTouch is the best of SodaStream’s available offerings due to its easy-to-control fizzing mechanism and sleek design.
Great bubbles but some potential for mess
The SodaStream Fizzi makes some of the bubbliest water of any model we tested, but with no light-up indicator, it’s easy to over-carbonate.
If the SodaStream Fizzi OneTouch is unavailable, the Fizzi makes a good alternative. It made equally bubbly water in our tests, and its bottles are just as easy to insert. However, unlike the OneTouch, the Fizzi isn’t automated and provides no indication of fizz level. As a result, it can be hard to tell how much you’ve fizzed, which makes it possible to accidentally over-carbonate and cause the bottle to overflow.
For carbonating more than water
If you are more interested in carbonating juice or wine than water, the iDrink Drinkmate is the only countertop soda maker we’ve found that’s up to the task.
The iDrink Drinkmate is a great option if you want to experiment with carbonating other drinks in addition to water. In our tests, it successfully carbonated rosé and mocktails. Carbonating anything besides water in SodaStream machines, in contrast, will void your warranty.
