SodaStream partners with Yves Béhar, world-renowned designer and social entrepreneur - the result is the new Source, an elegantly-designed soda maker that combines beauty, functionality and efficiency. The elegantly redesigned carbonating bottle easily locks into place with a single-push motion. Powered by a CO2 canister, the refined mechanics of SodaStream Source make the entire top surface responsive to touch, and the strength of carbonation is visible through an LED display, providing instant, visual feedback.
You may ask yourself these few questions:
#1. Is the SodaStream Source worth the money?
Yes, if you drink a lot of carbonated water and/or soda.
#2. Is it Good for small kitchens?
The Source is not a tiny appliance, but it does have a nice look to it that can help in a small space.also it is not heavy; if you don't have a permanent place for it, it's easy to move it around your kitchen.

The redesign of SodaStream has a new mechanism so that bottles can be quickly snapped and locked into place rather than being screwed in and out of the machine.So operating the machine is very easy.All you do is simply press down on the top/front portion and has no levers or buttons.There is a LED indicator for controlling carbonation level is not a new feature, but the Sources has a new graphic droplets that are much more attractive and easy to see how much carbonation you have going into the bottle.
When carbonating your water in the machine most SodaStream models make a loud buzz.The new Source instead of the buzz sound let's off a high-pitched noise.It sounds like a load tea kettle.I love and am happy with the Source, and am very impressed with the new design, but thought that I would let my readers know about the noise.
