  1. Works easy. Taste like soda water. Flavors are bad tasting. I expected a better taste. If you want to drink soda water with a funny taste. Buy it. If you expect a good flavor don’t buy it.

  2. OK I need the answer! What gets rid of the mold smell! I thought I was loosing my mind. No one in my family smells anything like I do. They think I am nuts! Please, someone let me know what works! Thanks

  3. Mine started doing this too. Turns out there’s mold growing on the inside of the cap and around the threaded of the bottle.

  4. I made seltzer with my new soda stream and the seltzer smells and tastes moldy. The water comes from my filtered refrigerator dispenser and was not smelly or moldy before I used the soda stream. Anyone else with this experience?

    • Yes! Mine just started doing this–smells like mold being injected. Have you figured out what it is? It can’t be that healthy to drink from.

        • I have also just had this experience…my guess is the CO2 canister, but we have to recycle them thru the store, so wouldn’t they check the age of the canisters?

          • I have the same experience. I filter my water carefully through an expensive fancy system, and it comes out delicious, but is undrinkable moldy tasting after being soda streamed. Did any of you find a solution to this? It really does taste like mold is being injected into the water.

  5. How is it powered?

    Which is the best buy – Genesis, Penguin, Pune or Fountain?

    Does it leak

    Is it really portable?

    What is the carbonated bottle made up of?

    How long does the fizz last?

    Is it really quick and easy

    Is it easy to use.

    • It is easy to use. Taste like soda water. Flavors taste bad. I guess I expected it to taste better. If you want to drink soda water buy it, if you want good taste don’t buy soda stream.
