SodaStream Bottle Alternatives, Types and Accessories

9 min read

If you love making fizzy drinks with your SodaStream, having an extra bottle or three can always come in handy. That way, you will always have a refreshing beverage on hand to enjoy or to take Fizz on the Go! 

In this guide, we will be sharing some excellent SodaStream bottle alternatives and different types of SodaStream bottles available for purchase. We have also provided some great accessory recommendations to keep your bottles safe and in pristine condition! 

But first, let’s answer some common questions related to SodaStream bottles! 

Do all SodaStream bottles fit all SodaStream machines

Similar to other leading soda maker models, SodaStream is also available in different models. While most SodaStream bottles are compatible with most SodaStream machines, some models require bottles specifically designed for them. Primarily, the compatibility can differ based on whether the bottle has a screw-style or snap-lock technology. In addition, the material of the bottle is also a decisive factor. So make sure you check if the bottle is suitable for your model before purchasing it. 

Are SodaStream bottles interchangeable

Yes, they are interchangeable with bottles of similar design and material.

What are the types of SodaStream bottles

SodaStream offers several varieties of water bottles, all sized for most of their soda maker models specifically. The major difference between these bottle types is the material as they come in either plastic or glass. 

What’s the capacity of SodaStream plastic bottles

These bottles, made from PET (Polyethylene terephthalate), come in slim and classic designs, and both these types are made to fit into the allotted space in the machine. While the slim ones are usually 11 inches tall, the classic ones are 9 inches tall. The capacity of both these designs is 1-litre. Additionally, there are also 0.5-litre bottles if you are opting for a small quantity of fizzy water!

Compatibility with Different Machines

  • Models compatible with SodaStream classic bottles: All models except Duo, E-Duo, Aqua Fizz, Crystal, and Penguin
  • Model compatible with SodaStream slim bottles: All models except Aqua Fizz, Jet, Crystal, and Penguin
  • Models compatible with SodaStream 0.5L bottles: All models except Aqua Fizz, Crystal, and Penguin

What’s the capacity of SodaStream glass carafes

The glass carafes are a chic and sustainable alternative to SodaStream PET bottles, and they are exclusive to the Aqua Fizz, Penguin, and Crystal. They are around 10 inches tall and can hold 600 ml of fluid. These glass carafes are dishwasher safe, making them much easier to clean than their plastic counterparts.

When to replace SodaStream bottles

Plastic SodaStream bottles are BPA-free but not dishwasher-safe. They must be replaced every 2-3 years. These bottles have an expiry date printed on them because the bottle’s durability has been tested to be safe for usage until that date. These bottles have to be replaced because they depreciate with wear and tear from constant carbonation. However, the glass carafes have no expiration date.

Handling your SodaStream bottles with care

All SodaStream bottles have convenient markings on their outsides to let you know how far you should fill the bottle with cold water. This way, you never run the risk of accidentally filling the bottle too much and causing it to overflow when you add the FIZZ. Don’t forget you also need somewhere to store your bottles, especially after washing them, so check out our review on the Best SodaStream Bottle Stand and Why You Need One.

Can you use other bottles with SodaStream

Yes, there are SodaStream bottle alternatives from a couple of brands like MATE OF STEEL and TEPIST. These bottles are designed to fit SodaStream machines, although you have to check and ensure that they fit the specific model you own.

Let’s take a look at some of the alternative options along with accessories from SodaStream itself!

“A Buddy for Your SodaStream Machine”

Tepist TwentyO Stainless Steel Water Bottle

The Tepist Stainless Steel Bottle is one of the best water bottles for carbonated drinks if you own a SodaStream machine at home. Compatible with most SodaStream models, it can be used straight as a carbonation bottle to prepare your sparkly water and preserve the fizz right away. As it’s not transparent like SodaStream bottles, make sure you leave ample room for carbonation to prevent overflowing. 

The bottle’s insulation is also exceptional due to its double-wall construction and will preserve your cold drinks for up to 72 hours. The leakproof loop handle makes it easy to carry the bottle or attach it to a carabiner. The exterior features a powder coat finish and will resist normal wear and tear very well. Tepist Stainless Steel Bottle is available in 20 oz and 30 oz. Check out our full review of this bottle as well as many other water bottles for carbonated drinks if you enjoy your FIZZ ON THE GO!
