I just found out I got a bonus at work today so I decided to treat myself to a toy I've been lusting over for several weeks now.
See, I'm a club soda junkie. I don't like pop but I LOOOOOOOVE fizzy water. I drink at least 1 or 2 cans a night. What I hate, is when I open up the fridge and there's none cold. What I hate even more is when I open up the cabinet and realize we're totally out.
I'd been looking at Soda Siphon's for a while but the reviews are always mixed with people saying they don't get the water fizzy enough. But then I found reviews of The Penguin. They were glowing. I was so excited. I needed it. After a bit of hesitation worrying about how to get the C02 canisters refilled and a few exchanges with the company I'm now convinced this will be my new best friend.
But as you can see from the picture above, I didn't buy the Penguin, I bought the Fountain Jet.
- It's 1/2 the price
- It can use the 110-L canisters where the Penguin can only use the 60L canisters (meaning you need to order exchanges about 1/2 as often which equals cheaper fizzy water)
- Turns out that price per liter with the Fountain Jet is only $.23 as opposed to $.40 with the Penguin.
The Fountain Jet does use the BPA-Free plastic bottles as opposed to the pretty glass carafes but I'll get over it. Other than that, the machines do the exact same thing - make fresh fizzy water when ever you want!
Do I always sound like a commercial around here or what?
Anyway, I'm super excited about my little Christmas gift to myself. It probably won't arrive until after the holidays but I'll be sure to come back and let y'all know when I use it.
Oh, and I have a coupon code if anyone else is interested in one (plus if you go through Cashbaq you can get an extra 3% back!)
