What does the beautiful, vintage kitchen design below need? A SodaStream! SodaStream partnered with KitchenAid to produce a cute, vintage design that matches a classic KitchenAid standup mixer.
The KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Makers Powered by SodaStream, pictured above, would look elegant in the above Farmhouse kitchen or any vintage, 1950s inspired kitchen. Use this SodaStream to make some root beer; fix a root beer float, and you’ll feel like you’re back in the 50s.
This SodaStream is available in the following colors: cobalt blue, green apple, aqua sky, contour silver, tangerine, white and onyx black. Pick a color that matches your KitchenAid mixer or have fun mixing different colors on your countertop. It works like the other models and comes with one 60L CO2 tank, one reusable bottle and a starter pack of three flavors. The unit weighs 20 pounds, and the CO2 pressure gauge allows for four different settings/levels of carbonation to choose from.
The KitchenAid SodaStream would look great on the cart in this vintage kitchen. A tangerine unit would match the existing KitchenAid mixer, or a green apple unit would pop for a nice effect.
To make soda with the KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Makers Powered by SodaStream, you put cold water in the reusable bottle and attach it to the unit. Carbonate the water using the lever. Add your choice of soda flavoring. There are more than 60 flavors on the marketing for SodaStream, including Kool-Aid, diet soda, Country Time, Crystal Light, energy drinks, stevia sweetened beverages and happy hour cocktail mixers. This unit runs on three AAA batteries. When the carbonation tank runs out, it has to be replaced for $15.
According to SodaStream, the cost of the unit, the cost of the flavors and the cost of carbonation tank replacements will save you money in the long run on buying individual bottles and cans of soda in the future. Furthermore, you won’t have to transport soda anymore from the store to your home, nor will you have to store it in your home or in your trash bins.
These homemade beverages are also better for the environment than store bought soda, because they reduce waste from plastic bottles and cans. They also reduce the amount of pollution caused by the transportation of soda bottles. Lastly, they’re healthier because there are many SodaStream flavors that contain no high fructose corn syrup and less sugar than comparable sodas.
Most SodaStream units cost between $80 and $200. Other units include the Fountain Jet, Genesis, Source, Crystal, Revolution and Penguin. Now that the SodaStream has a new chic look, will you be purchasing one for your kitchen?
