For the sparkling water (or soda) fan: the best soda maker

holiday gift guide soda maker

We all have that friend or family member who's really, really into drinking sparkling water, or who likes to make his or her own special soda flavors to be mixed in cocktails or other party drinks. That person is surely tired of wasting plastic bottle after plastic bottle from the grocery store, which is why the Sodastream Jet is a great gift. It's simple to use, easy to clean, and made some of the best-tasting soda water in our head-to-head tests.

We spent more than 30 hours researching dozens of home soda makers, testing six models hands-on and even built our own machine to ultimately decide the Sodastream Jet is the best option available. If you're in the market for a home soda maker, the Jet makes the bubbliest soda we've found.
