I happened to try out the SodaStream Jet last September. Surprisingly it turned out to be great! Afterwards, SodaStream introduced fresh designs and I was once more privileged to check out the newer Genesis model. In my analysis of the soda stream jet and soda stream genesis some interesting observations surfaced.
Each of the Sodastream Home Soda Maker units has the same basic functions, features and benefits. I would give some details about the basic features akin to both and show where the soda stream jet and SodaStream Genesis differ. As a general rule in comparing the SodaStream Jet and SodaStream Genesis, it would be proper to take a look at the features, design and function of both units and come to a decision on personal liking. Seldom are two people the same.
Both the soda stream jet and soda stream genesis contain plastic bottles and must be washed by hand. These plastic bottles must be replaced every 2 years; a reality not loved by many. The Sodastream Genesis not only has a better design but, makes for a great gift for friends and family.
When comparing the Sodastream Jet and Sodastream Genesis you would notice that both machines boast of convenience and ease of use. Maintenance comes easy for both soda stream makers and no batteries or electricity is required.
Only one carbonating bottle is included with the Sodastream Jet. Product experts recommend acquiring additional bottles. As far as style and construction quality go, the Sodastream Jet is generally perceived to have a lesser rating when compared to the soda stream Genesis. One user complained that the only reason he wasn’t going to give the Sodastream Jet a 5 star review is because he found it somewhat awkward to screw the bottles into the soda stream for carbonation. Quite a few users complain of this operation. This is one of the reasons I would recommend offering the soda stream Genesis as a gift over the Sodastream Jet.
There are many testimonials where people expound the virtues of the Sodastream Jet and Sodastream Genesis speaking of its safety (no exploding bottles for instance) and ease of use. Where I’ve seen some issues is respect to the reviews of the assorted flavors. Not everyone consider them to be tasty. I for one consider them to be very good and love the fact that they are sweetened with Sucralose.
