It's not often that I advocate an item/gadget ... but this one has been and still is our favourite.
We have got alot of use out of it, especially during the hot dry summer we had this year. We don't buy soft drinks and this little machine called the Soda Stream, makes ordinary water turn into the most delicious carbonated water. I add combinations of sliced lemon, lime, orange and even cucumber to the water. It's so refreshing !
For those who like carbonated soft drinks, you can also purchase concentrated liquid to make your own colas, ginger ale, etc.
