    I want that home soda-making machine. If anyone has it, let me know how it works.

    I asked for and got a Sodastream for Christmas last year. I was afraid I wouldn't use it much, but I really do use it ALL the time. The trick for me was to not make the "usual" sodas like coke, because it's going to taste different and I couldn't get past that. But when I tried other flavors, that's when I started to use it all the time. It's ridiculously easy and quick and I like that I don't have to fool with a cord or anything. I go though bottles of diet pink grapefruit soda super fast. I also make a diet ginger ale/diet cranberry raspberry soda mixture that's good too. My SIL also swears by the KoolAid flavors and the flavored carbonated water add ins. It's one of the few all the time out counter top appliances along with the Keurig and electric kettle.

    I just got the Zoku slush and shake maker for my birthday. It's being shipped to my house and I should receive it next week. I'll let you all know how it is!

    I might have to try that. I have the Zoku quick pop thing and it's really good. If I have no popsicles in the house and have a craving for one, I can have one made in just a few minutes.

    Not a gadget but I cannot live without my baking paper/parchment. Im not a huge baker but this stuff is brilliant for lining trays and dishes to keep them non-stick and needing minimal washing up.

    Oh yes! I bought some a few years back on a whim and I have no idea how I lived without it before.

    Ooh, me too. At the new house I think I'm going to get the kitchen roll organizer Southernbelle posted and it will be perma-stocked with parchment paper.

    I use it to draft patterns, its cheap & long & if you need to trace a pattern (like from Burda magazine) it acts just like tracing paper.

    My Zoku slush and shake maker came in the mail yesterday, so as promised here is my review for you all:

    -It does what it says, but it's not as instant as I thought it would be. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get a slush (maybe less if you like it kind of runny), and you have to be standing there, stirring it and scraping down the sides every 1-2 minutes.

    -This makes a single serving at a time. For reference, I made a slush using a standard 12 oz can of Coke, and I had to divide it into two sessions. The Zoku was able to hold half a can of Coke at a time.

    -Beverages have to be cold when you pour them in.

    -Instructions warn that it "may not work" if you're trying to make a slush with a beverage that either doesn't contain any natural sugar or contains artificial sweeteners (for example, diet Coke).

    Overall, I think I'd give it 3.5 stars out of 5. I've been pleased with the end result, but I wish that it required a little less work and could make bigger servings.

    i want a sodastream. i don't care about making flavoured drinks but i'm a seltzer addict and my roommate is too and between the two of us we probably drink our weight in seltzer every week so it would totally make sense to make our own.

    I saw a Sodastream on sale at Target yesterday for $79.99, which is the lowest price I've seen on one so far.

    Does it have to be a soda stream? What about those soda water bottles you used to be able to get - soda just is syrup & soda water any way.

    They do soda syphons at target & WS etc
