Many people would like to get SodaStream, but they have no idea which model is best for them. It is difficult to choose, especially if SodaStream does not have information that highlights the differences between models. Here's a brief overview that explains what features are unique to the models.
There are currently eight SodaStream models available. They are the revolution, the source, the fizz, the crystal, the pure, the fountain, the dynamo and the genesis. First of all, consider the similarities of all eight types. All eight models can bring soft drinks or sparkling water to your home. They all "stay carbonated" bottlenecks, which keep carbon dioxide longer. All are compatible with the standard 14.5 ounces hydrocarbon cylinder capable of carbonating up to 60 liters of soda or sparkling water.
Four models can use the 14.5 ounce hydrocarbon cylinder or the larger 33 ounce cylinder capable of carbonizing up to 130 liters of soda or sparkling water. The four models are Revolution, Dynamo, Fountain Jet and Fizz.
All eight models use the carbonate power source as a CO2 tank. Crystal, clean, dynamo, fountain, and genesis do not require additional power to operate. Requires Fizz and Source to run the batteries. The battery is included. Revolution is the only model that requires electricity to function. Keep this in mind, as you need to be close to using it while in use.
The crystal dishwasher-protected glass tray is located. The other seven models have BPA-free plastic bottles that can not be washed in a dishwasher. Optional dishwasher bottles that are compatible with the seven models, but the glass can not be used with a non-crystalline model.
Dynamo, Fountain Jet, Pure, Fizz, and Genesis all need to screw the bottle in its place. Crystal, Revolution, and Source all tap on the bottle, making it easier to use them.
There is only one fully automated SodaStream available. This is the Revolution. Simply press a button to tell you what kind of carbonated beverage you need for your drink and the rest for you. It also measures the CO2 level to let you know how much left in the carbon cylinder. Fizz is not automated, but checks and displays the carbonation in the beverage and the CO2 level in the cylinder. The Source has three LEDs to tell you how much carbonate you have in your drink, but it does not monitor CO2 in the cylinder.
