Julie reviewed the SodaStream Fountain Jet Starter Kit a few years ago and found that it was a good way to enjoy tasty sodas without all the waste of aluminum cans and single-use plastic bottles. SodaStream is still around, but they have introduced a variety of new carbonator machines in the past few years. One was the KitchenAid Sparkling Beverage Maker Powered by SodaStream, which has the cool, retro look of KitchenAid mixers. If you’d like to complement the decor of your kitchen with a great looking SodaStream but the $200 KitchenAid isn’t in the budget, you could buy the new Play model from SodaStream and decorate it with a skin from Skinit. You can purchase a pre-designed skin featuring your favorite sports team or a variety of geometric, cute, or solid color designs, or you can have your own image custom-printed on a Skinit for the Play machine. The skins are about $40, but some specially-marked SodaStream Play boxes include a code to redeem for one free personalized skin. The Play machine itself is only $90, so you can have the perfectly coordinated SodaStream machine for your kitchen for significantly less than the cost of the KitchenAid SodaStream machine.
