Soda...Anyone?

I totally forgot that I have this genius little machine! My soda maker!!! I immediately pulled out the machine from tralala (cabinet) and started making mmm, well...soda!

If you are a soda drinker, it is wise for you to buy this. It is a bit pricey, but think of the empty bottles that you are throwing...where will they go? Additional trash?

I am trying to be an environmentalist here...heheh! But seriously, if you have this machine, you will not be throwing bottles again. You will also be saving a lot of money in the near future. A liter only costs P20.00 ($0.44 approx), and you can have carbonated drinks anytime you want.


I cannot remember the price of this, since it was only a gift last christmas. More or less, it is around P3,000 ($67).

The kit comes with the following:
1. 2 reusable bottles, you can use them
 for 3 years before you replace them.
2. 3 trial flavors: lemon lime for sprite, cola for coke, and orange for royal. But now, i heard that it comes with 1 bottle of flavoring of your choice.
3. The carbonator cylinder, which can carbonate 60 liters of water. By the way, an empty cylinder can be refilled, and its a lot cheaper than buying a new cylinder.
4. And of course the Machine, mine is Jet.

It is very easy to make your own soda using this. Here's the procedure...
1. Fill the bottle with water until you reached the line.
2. Attach the bottle in the machine. That small white tube should be inside the bottle. The air that will make the water fizz will pass there.
                                         
                                               Here's the carbonator at the back of the machine.


3. Press the button 3 times until you hear a loud buzz.

4. The water is already carbonated by this time. You can now put a cap full of the flavoring. Pour it slowly, coz the carbonated water will sizzle out of the bottle if you pour it fast.

Here's my flavoring...

5. Cover and carefully shake the bottle to mix the flavoring into the water. Chill before serving.

Here's the soda...see those bubblets?

When I poured the flavoring, my son said that I was trying to make a potion...heheheh!
