Sodastream vs Sparkel? You’ll have the Spärkel

We noticed at The Shop Advisor that Sodastream was a big gift at Christmas this year. There are a few of us that already have the Spärkel and we had a debate about which one is better? Sodastream vs Sparkel. They’re both the same price at $140 so what’s the difference besides the fact that Spärkel is a Canadian product.

Sodastream vs Sparkel. What’s the Difference?

There are three main differences between the Spärkel and the Sodastream. Firstly, you can make a greater range of sparkling beverages with the Spärkel. You can carbonate almost any liquid such as water, tea, mimosas, wine but you can only carbonate water with the Sodastream. Secondly, the carbonation system is more convenient and easier to use with the Spärkel. Sodastream uses a CO2 tank, and Spärkel uses small sachets of citric acid and sodium bicrbonate. This means that Spärkel carbonators are easily delivered to your door and you don’t need to return empty tanks. Lastly, the quality of carbonation is consistent with the Spärkel because each carbonator makes the exact same amount of CO2. You can control the level of carbonation with levels 1 through 5. 1 being the least bubbly and 5 the most bubbly.

There may always be a Sodastream vs Sparkel debate but we’re team Spärkel.
