images and such will be here
Update 20 Jan 2020:
I emailed SodaStream with two questions. I didn’t save the emails so I can’t quote exactly.
1) Where are the dishwasher safe bottles? If you searched, you got a hit for the bottles at the SodaStream site (they’ve fixed this for the US site, a UK hit still shows up). If you went to their site and browsed for them, there were no dishwasher safe bottles. They answered that they no longer make the bottles. Kudos for fixing the site and for responding honestly and quickly.
2) I asked them to improve the labeling. I don’t know if they will but they wrote that they wanted to keep their customers happy. They asked for my address and sent me two of the correct bottles for free. I didn’t even have to pay shipping.
I have no financial interest in SodaStream. I don’t hesitate to nuke companies when they treat me poorly so it’s only fair that I offer praise when I’m treated well.
Back story: I stopped drinking sweetened sodas a long time ago but I still polish off about a liter a day of plain or flavored/unsweetened fizz water. That adds up money-wise and worse, it’s a lot of plastic. Santa Fe has a decent recycling program but it’s at the mercy of the market and it only takes one lazy moron to contaminate the drop-off dumpster and divert a lot of material to the landfill. M had given me a SodaStream Jet a long time ago. I used it for a while, got lazy, and stopped using it. For the new year, I decided to find more ways to reduce my footprint and dug out the carbonator.
