Pop, fiz­zle, & Aarke soda

Plug - - REVIEW - BY ROMA CHRIS­TIAN

Swedish de­signer, Aarke, has taken on the likes of So­das­tream, by launch­ing its stylish new ‘Sparkling Wa­ter Maker’ (A$249) down un­der, for the mod­ern and so­phis­ti­cated home.

Avail­able in pol­ished sil­ver steel, matte black, brass and porce­lain white, Aarke’s drink car­bon­a­tor is mar­keted as a pre­mium coun­ter­top ap­pli­ance – a “sculp­tural piece” and a “style state­ment”.

The prod­uct claims to be the world’s first car­bon­ated wa­ter ma­chine with a com­plete stain­less-steel en­clo­sure, un­like the flimsy plas­tic soda mak­ers of old.

As an added sweet­ener, Aarke’s Sparkling Wa­ter Maker is com­pat­i­ble with 60L CO2 cylin­ders and bot­tles from other brands, in­clud­ing So­das­tream.

The ma­chine offers fresh sparkling wa­ter on-de­mand, and can be used with or­ganic tonic syrups (A$12.99/each) for flavoured drinks – e.g. bit­ter, rhubard and spruce shoots tonic.

With its sleek de­sign and stain­less-steel en­clo­sure, Aarke’s Sparkling Wa­ter Maker har­nesses high-end com­po­nents and safety valves for car­bon­ated drinks in sec­onds.

With the sim­ple push of lever, pres­sure is im­me­di­ately re­leased – si­mul­ta­ne­ously car­bon­at­ing wa­ter and let­ting out pres­sure to the bot­tle.

Users are then sim­ply re­quired to un­screw the bot­tle from the soda maker and serve – cock­tails, post-ex­er­cise tonic, fresh sparkling wa­ter and more.

Aarke’s Sparkling Wa­ter Maker ships with a PET wa­ter bot­tle and in­struc­tion man­ual, how­ever, cylin­der is not in­cluded.
