SodaStream 1216512491 Crystal 2.0
Safe and Easy Way to Make Soda
Most often store-bought soda and fizzy drinks go in plastic bottles that we usually throw away afterwards. With soda being a favourite drink for many people, it causes tons of plastic packaging to be recycled on a daily basis. Besides, the majority of disposable plastic bottles used for mass production of sparkling drinks often contain a number of potentially harmful chemicals that are used to soften plastic and can be really dangerous to your health in the long run. With SodaStream, you will not only be able to reduce your sugar intake by drinking a healthier homemade soda but also will be sure that carbonating bottles contain no harmful chemicals such as BPA, phthalates or bisphenol and are safe for your health. Taking every care of your health, SodaStream takes care of the environmental health as well. All SodaStream plastic bottles are reusable while some models even come with glass carafes. The SodaStream Crystal 2.0 is one of such models specifically designed for those who try to avoid using plastic packaging and dishware and contribute to plastic waste reduction.
Similar to other SodaStream models, the Crystal 2.0 features a simple design with a gas cylinder installed on the back compartment and a carbonator and a bottle holder in front. Yet, unlike models with an open bottle stand, this unit features a little bit different construction specifically designed to protect the glass bottle. The carbonator consists of two parts securely locking together to hold the bottle inside.The locking mechanism works smoothly and there is a special insert in the base to hold the carafe in an upright position and prevent it and a carbonator bit from damages. The carafe is made of pretty thick and durable glass and can easily be cleaned in a dishwasher.
As all SodaStream sparkling water machines, the Crystal 2.0 allows adjusting the fizz level. And though this option is not automated, you have even more freedom to get exactly the level of bubbliness to your liking by simply pushing the carbonator button on the top of the unit. Press the button from 1 to 3 times to get a mild to medium fizz or press it more than 3 times if you like strong effervescence level.
Packed With a Handy Bonus
While most SodaStream machines come fitted with a single carbonating bottle, this model is packed with two glass carafes both featuring plastic locking caps to seal bubbles inside for longer. It is very convenient since glass bottles are perfect for storing drinks. Everyone knows that soda tastes better when it is cool. Hence, you can make two bottles of sparkling water and put them in the fridge to keep seltzer cool and fizzy. Besides, you can create two different drinks or cocktails and, thanks to a nice rippled bottle design, serve them to the table right in the bottles.
All in all, the SodaStream Crytal 2.0 is a great choice for those who want to save time and efforts on lugging litres of soda in plastic bottles from the store as well as to reduce their carbs intake and plastic wastes.
What Is a SodaStream Soda Maker?
Soda is a favourite drink for millions of people worldwide. Some like creamy vanilla flavours of traditional soda or sweetness and one-of-the-kind taste of Coke while others might go for the zest of Tonic or simply drink sparkling water with a slice of lemon and several mint leaves. And no need to say how many delicious and extraordinary cocktails are based on soda including a popular Mojito in all its numerous variations. In the end, everything is about the tiny bubbles that bring that peculiar fizz everybody likes about soda. With a variety of soda makers available on the market, today, making soda at home is not a hassle anymore. Yet, not all of them are the same. SodaStream carbonators and sparkling water makers are considered to be the best among other brands that makes SodaStream one of the biggest and most popular beverage companies in the world.
Established in 1903, the company was one of the first ones to introduce a system that enabled customers to carbonate water at home. For over a century, SodaStream has been introducing innovative solutions and technological advancements to provide a healthier and environmentally-friendly alternative to store-bought soda. All modern SodaStream systems are designed with user comfort and convenience in mind. You will come across manual saturators where you need to press and hold the button to carbonate a drink to your liking and fully automated units offering several fizz levels. The SodaStream range of products contains models that will meet any budget, needs, and requirements.
Since you can use tap water for making soda, it is recommended to take care of the drinking water quality. This is where you might need a good water filter that will remove all harmful additives and impurities from the water you drink and use for cooking.
What Features to Compare
A variety of soda makers for domestic use falls into two major categories: handheld syphons and countertop carbonators or saturators. A soda syphon is usually a bottle with an inserted replaceable CO2 cartridge to infuse water with bubbles via a special valve. Commonly, syphons are easy to store and move around, and simple to use. Yet, they provide a lesser degree of control over carbonation level and are not meant to produce large amounts of seltzer water. So, syphons are perfect for casual soda drinkers.
Soda saturators or stationary soda makers are actual appliances. Being rather simple, they offer an automated way of making soda. They use a carbonator cylinder filled with CO2 and installed on one side of the machine to deliver fizzy water into the bottle attached to the other side. They produce soda easier and faster at a single touch of a button. Soda water machines are a great option for those who need a source of carbonated water on a regular basis. It's worth saying that SodaStream range includes only countertop carbonators.
In syphons, bottles are usually made of aluminium to be more lightweight yet durable. When it comes to SodaStream soda making machines, the body is made either of plastic or of metal or a combination of both. Though a metal design looks more solid, it is heavier and less portable. Taking care of the environment and being concerned about an issue of plastic packaging recycling, SodaStream produces the bottles or carafes for its machines from BPA-free plastic or glass and come with closures to store your drink in the fridge.
Cartridges and Capacity
SodaStream machines boast pretty high capacity. They are compatible with bigger CO2 cylinders designed for carbonating 60 or 130 litres of water. Besides, they have an adjustable carbonation option to optimize the gas consumption. Hence, you can forget about refilling the cylinders for up to 3 months.
There are several features that contribute to SodaStream ease of use and allow us to appreciate all the benefits of making sparkling water at home. For user convenience, they offer simple intuitive control buttons and levers. All models allow for carbonation level adjustment. More sophisticated machines are distinguished by preset fizz modes while others offer manual carbonation adjustment by pressing a carbonator button. Some models even come fitted with an LED indicator or a display showing carbonation level. Thus, you can make a mild sweet beverage for your kid or a cocktail with a stronger fizz for yourself. In addition, SodaStream provides a whole variety of syrups including original and regular flavours, diet and naturally sweetened ones as well as flavour essences and energy mixes. The choice is truly endless.
Did you know?
Today soda is nothing special for us and it seems that this bubble-infused water existed forever. And it is really so if we talk about sparkling mineral water that comes naturally carbonated straight from the mineral spring. But have you ever wondered when the idea of artificial carbonation started up?
A Historical Flashback on Sparkling Water
In general, carbonation is not a modern phenomenon. For centuries, many alcoholic drinks such as beer, sparkling wines, and champagne have been carbonated through natural fermentation processes and today, these beverages are still produced using basically the same principle. However, artificial carbonation is somewhat different. The carbon dioxide gas dissolved in water at a low concentration (up to 1%) creates carbonic acid that gives water that specific slightly tart flavour. The carbon dioxide escapes from the solution in the form of numerous bubbles creating the effect of effervescence. Why would people want to carbonate water? Mostly, this was due to the benefits of natural sparkling water that was believed to improve metabolism. Since naturally carbonated water was pretty rare at that time, scientists looked for the way to emulate this natural process.
The first who found the method how to infuse water with carbon dioxide was an English scientist Joseph Priestley, in 1767. Actually, he did it by accident when left a bowl of water over a beer vat in the brewery. Dripping sulphuric acid onto the chalk over the vat, he discovered that water got infused with carbon dioxide acquiring a nice taste and bubbliness. This is how a sparkling water was born. The first who started mass production of carbonated water was J.J. Schweppe who founded his famous Schweppes company in Geneva, in 1783. Over the next decades, producers started to mix syrups with sparkling water and eventually, they began to add different chemicals to preserve those mixtures for extended periods of time. Since sodium salts tended to be the most popular additives at that time, the carbonated water acquired the name of “soda”.
Several Unexpected Ways of Using Soda
Beyond making sodas and a myriad of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails based on sparkling water, the carbonated water you make in a SodaStream carbonator can be used in many other ways:
In cooking, a clear sparkling water can become a perfect base for a variety of marinades. Steaks and kebabs preliminary soaked in soda with spices and herbs, will taste unforgettable and literally melt in your mouth. And using soda when making dough or batter, you’ll get much fluffier and lighter cakes, pancakes, and waffles infused with air bubbles.
Carbonated water can serve as a perfect cleanser and stain remover. It successfully combats wine, coffee, and chocolate stains, brings back the original shine to steel and porcelain and restores jewellery sparkle.
In your home beauty procedures, you can use soda to create homemade face care products. Containing acid, soda will help clean and unclog your skin pores efficiently removing skin oil and giving your skin a radiant look.
Q: Why should I get a SodaStream soda maker?
A: A SodaStream machine will become a very helpful appliance for real soda or seltzer enthusiasts and occasional drinkers as well. The major benefits include:
- saving your time, efforts and, eventually, money. You won’t have to carry heavy cases of bottles and cans from the store and find the space for them in a fridge;
- greatly reducing the number of recyclables and disposables since soda makers come with reusable glass or plastic bottles;
- no more worries about running out of your favourite bubbly drinks. With a SodaStream soda maker at hand, you can make a glass of sparkling lemonade whenever you wish;
- health benefits should not be underestimated too. To make a custom drink, you can choose from a vast variety of flavoured syrups with dietary, naturally sweetened and caffeine-free options available. No more high-fructose corn syrups!
- freedom to experiment with flavors by adding different ingredients to your liking and creating new unexpected yet delicious combinations.
Q: Do I need to treat water somehow to use it with a SodaStream machine?
A: Actually, you can use any type of water you commonly drink, be it plain tap water, bottled water or filtered water. The only recommendation is to use cold water for getting the best results.
Q: Can I carbonate any other drinks except water?
A: SodaStream models are designed to carbonate only water since any other liquid can cause damage to the carbonating system. Yet, you can come across soda makers that on top of carbonating your beverage can infuse it with fruit. Anyway, you can always customize your fizzy drink by adding some syrup, fruit or herbs into a carbonated water.
Q: Is it possible to re-carbonate my drink if it goes flat?
A: If you drink plain seltzer water and it is not that bubbly anymore you can re-fizz it. Yet, if you’ve already mixed a cocktail or added some extra ingredients like fresh juice or fruit, you cannot re-carbonate since this may damage the carbonator.
Q: Does my SodaStream require some specific cleaning?
A: SodaStream appliances are very easy to clean requiring no specific procedures. It is enough to wipe the unit with a soft, damp cloth using non-abrasive cleansers. As far as carbonating bottles are concerned, glass bottles are dishwasher safe, whereas plastic and aluminium bottles can be washed in warm water with a bottle brush and some dishwashing liquid.
Q: Is it safe to have a carbonator at home?
A: SodaStream carbonators are made in full compliance with all safety rules and specifications. Usually, they come equipped with a special valve to release the gas and prevent overpressure if the pressure within the cylinder rises too high. Yet, it’s an unlikely event. The major safety rule every user should stick to is to avoid exposing a cylinder to extreme heat.
