Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fritzi Strange Trade-In Policy
My Fountain Jet broke after a year and a half after use. Since it was under warranty, I am eligible for a trade in. The weird thing is that if you want to trade up, you get the same deal that you do if you trade in a broken, still-under-warranty machine. It seems to me that if you get a machine that breaks, there should be SOME compensation under the warranty.

We've been spending an exorbitant amount of money on sparkling soda. We invested in this and in a month we've already made our money back plus some. It's so easy to use and the carbonation is great. Just add a little fruit extract and it's delicious!

I have been using my Fountain Jet for 2 years. It's great because you can control the amount of fizz that you wish. I mix different decaf, herbal and black teas with seltzer-- very refreshing drinks and no sweeteners either.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tmechanic Great little gadget
I've owned my unit for over two years now and I have never had a problem with it. I drink a lot of soda, 6-8 liters per day and this saves me so much money. It's very simple to use, and has held up to my abuse incredibly well. The only issues I have are trying to find the 130L CO2 canisters and Diet Fountain Mist.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Myob Small parts issues
I have purchased 2 of these items in the past 3 years. I love the convenience & recycle savings. What I DON'T like is the poor quality of the small parts involved. My first one had to be replaced because the small washer in the top where you screw in the bottle broke & fell out. Now my 2nd one (only 10 months old) has to be replaced because the tiny spring in the top mechanism the pierces the canister as a new one is installed has failed. For what they cost, one would think they'd be better quality! I'm looking for an alternative maker this time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sodastream fan Fantastic Product
I bought my Sodastream nearly five years ago. I use it multiple times (2-3) a day and have never had a problem with the unit. I had been a loyal Diet Pepsi drinker for 30+ years when I decided to take a chance on sodastream. It took a little while to get used to the difference, but after a short while I was hooked. I now prefer the flavor of Sodastream and appreciate that it does not contain any aspartame. Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I've had several friends and family members purchase them after either trying mine or listening to me rave about the product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by opcopcopc Not nearly as good as the Genesis
I am a huge Sodastream fan so when I decided to get a second unit I wanted to try a different model so I ordered the Fountain Jet. I regretted it from Day 1 and actually tried to return it but I had to pay for the shipping and I had already broken down the box, so decided to stick with it. Bottom line - it's awkward to use and the instructions are misleading. While there is nothing complicated about spritzing a bottle of water, the instructions imply 3 short bursts of air until you hear the noise. I have to press & hold the button for up to 5-8 seconds PER BURST in order to get the buzzing noise. My concern is that I will go through the air cartridges so much faster this way but the customer rep assured me that wasn't true. Also, the Fountain Jet just feels poorly made. The Genesis is far superior and I would buy that one again in a heartbeat. I strongly recommend avoiding the Fountain Jet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dranny11 best diet soda
this is the best diet soda I have had and drink a lot of it and suffer no aspartame poisoning. My machine works great and is used a lot. The convenience is so nice and earth friendly. If I travel I take my soda stream.
