Julie reviewed the SodaStream a few years ago and determined it was an economical way to make your own sodas at home. It gives you the option to make regular, diet, and caffeine-free sodas and flavored waters, but it did look a bit utilitarian. Big deal, you might say, but there are some people out there (like me) who like a coordinated look in the kitchen. If you do, and you are a fan of those gorgeous KitchenAid stand mixers, these new SodaStream machines are for you. The new KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker Powered by SodaStream has an all-metal design, just like their stand mixers. It measures 13.7″ D x 12.6″ W x 21.4″ H and weighs 20 pounds, so it won’t get tipped over by accident. It uses SodaStream’s technology, canisters, and syrups to make sodas, and it comes with a 60L CO2 tank, 1L BPA-free reusable bottle, and a SodaStream 3-flavor starter pack. Its built-in CO2 pressure gauge ensures precise beverage carbonation; it uses 3 AAA batteries, and your first set is included. It’s available in a range of colors to match your KitchenAid appliances: Onyx Black, Green Apple, Tangerine, Aqua Sky, Empire Red, White, Contour Silver, and Cobalt Blue. The KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker Powered by SodaStream is $199.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond.
