If you're sick of lugging home heavy cans of sparking water, this SodaStream carbonator will help streamline the way you get your fix. Simply pop this little device atop your counter, and you're pretty much set for unlimited fizz. Opt for one of three carbonation levels for the perfect amount of fizz every time, and if plain old water doesn't cut it, purchase a set of separately sold fruit-flavor drops for a customized taste of your choosing.
Best Budget Buy
If you're looking to boost your daily bubble flow on a budget, this affordable SodaStream carbonator is totally frills-free, but it gets the job done just as well as the pricier models. The biggest difference? It doesn't offer buttons that allow you to easily select your preferred carbonation level, but the longer you press the lever, the fizzier your drink will get. Plus, it fully functions without batteries or electricity, and comes with a 1-liter BPA-free bottle that's great for sipping on the go.
Best for Carbonating All Beverages
If water isn't quite your thing, this countertop carbonator makes classic beverages a little less boring. Unlike the previous models that are only intended to carbonate water (SodaStream's warranty actually doesn't account for carbonating other liquids), it can fizz up fruit juices in a flash for creative craft cocktails, or even boost bubbles in flattened beer and soda. Also great: It comes with a generous 3-ounce test cylinder, so you can start using it immediately.
Best Space Saver
Most carbonators are slim enough to fit snugly into any corner of your counter, but if you can't stand to spare more space, don't worry — you won't have to sacrifice your coffee maker any time soon. This small and stashable model can easily slide into any drawer or cabinet for total convenience, and can easily dismantle to make storage more compact. And because it's powered by a CO2 cartridge, you don't even need batteries or electricity to get the fizz flowing.
This KitchenAid carbonator may be our priciest pick, but if you're hesitant, just think about all the money you'll save on LaCroix! It's far more minimalist than previous models, and comes with a luxe-looking 1 Liter BPA-Free plastic bottle for convenience. Includes one three ounce CO2 tank.
This AARKE carbonator may be our priciest pick, but if you're hesitant, just think about all the money you'll save on LaCroix! It's far more minimalist than previous models, and comes with a luxe-looking PET plastic bottle for convenience. While you do have to purchase your own gas cylinder separately, this model features intuitive controls that make the carbonating process super quick and easy.
