SodaStream has been around long enough that it has products at several price points, but its inexpensive gear does look a bit dated, especially by today’s standards. That’s about to change, though, as SodaStream teams up with the designer of its recent reinvention model for the $99 Play.
“We’re thrilled to offer the Play Drinks Maker to Australian families,” said Myles Anceschi, Managing Director of SodaStream in Australia.
“We understand that people want a product that is fun, yet can fit easily into the aesthetic of their living space. With SodaStream Play, families can get creative in the kitchen and enjoy great tasting, better-for-you sparkling drinks in seconds.’’
From a design point of view, the product is very similar to the Source, taking SodaStream’s carbonation canisters to inject bubbles into their special plastic bottles, which can take a litre of water and provide sparkling water after a second or two of carbonation.
There is an obvious difference, however, with no lights on this model, and an auto-lift slider, which upon pushing down on the carbonation head will make this section rise up and return to its position, ready for use again.
