The best water carbonators
These machines will make your drinks sparkle
Drinkmate Sparkling Water and Soda Maker
This is the only carbonator that can add fizz to any drink – juices, iced teas, wine... you name it, this machine can make it sparkle. It’s an ideal choice for experimental cocktail makers.
MySoda Woody Sparkling Water Maker
If you have a minimalist kitchen, this sleek and stylish machine will sit well in it. Easy to use, it is made from wood-based renewable biocomposite, and is very well priced.
Mixology Classic Soda Syphon
If you’re low on countertop space, the Classic Soda Syphon, running on small CO2 cartridges, might be a good choice. Easily stored in a cupboard, it makes a litre of sparkling water at a time, which you can then siphon directly into your glass.
Aarke Carbonator 3
This is the thoroughbred of carbonators. It’s beautifully designed, with a stainless steel casing that comes in a range of finishes, including copper, and it’s sold with a relatively attractive PET bottle.
SodaStream was founded in 1908, but only became a household name in the 1980s. The Spirit, its most recent product, looks less high-spec and sleek than some of its rivals, but its design is a proven success.
