We often get asked what the difference is and why we do not recommend or sell Soda Syphons.

Maybe you are in a hurry so here is the list.

6 reasons against a Soda Syphon:

(the video also shows clearly, why they are outdated old tech)

  1. Small 8-gram, one time use CO2 capsules, not eco friendly at all
  2. 1 capsule makes 1 liter at best with many steps
  3. Refill packs are expensive and you need to keep stock, check Tokopedia and be surprised
  4. No additional carbonation bottles to have Soda ready to go, just the one you have
  5. Carbonation takes longer and you have to work it/ shake it
  6. Bottles are harder to clean and you need inserts

More and detailed Info

Most home soda makers are either soda siphons or small, stand alone appliances known as Soda Maker Machines. Soda siphons attach to the mouth of a bottle and carbonate whatever liquid is in the bottle. It does this through a small, disposable 8mg CO2 cartridge inserted into the siphon.

Soda Maker Machines have much larger, refillable CO2 cartridge built into a counter-top appliance that can fill an exchangeable bottle. (More than 50 times the CO2-grams to be precise.) They have features that allow you to control how much CO2 goes into the bottle. They’re easier and faster to use and just a little more costly up front.

Soda Maker machines have a slightly higher upfront cost but cost less in the long term thanks to the much lower refill cost. Soda siphons cost a bit less initially but have higher residual costs and they are not very eco friendly as you go through a lot of the small capsules that you then throw away.
