Im looking to buy one of Sodastreams machine’s. Does anyone have any recomandations? Are the syrups Kosher?
Yes, they are kosher. We are planning on ordering a SodaStream from Amazon.
We love ours. My kids who won’t drink water have at least stopped drinking juice and sugared soda and have switched to seltzer. If you have a big family- consider a model that uses the bigger balloons. Otherwise you’ll be swapping balloons very often. The syrups are all (as far as I know) under the OU. Oh- and the bottles if you need extra are much cheaper in Israel.

You’re probably better off getting the basic model as opposed to one of the fancy electronic ones – many Rabbonim hold you can use them on Shabbos!
We’ve had a SodaStream for over 5 years. Just had to replace the original. If you go through A LOT of seltzer, make sure you get a machine that can handle the 130L CO2 canisters.
You can also use fruit juice instead of the syrups. If you want. I have done that from time to time. Mostly ours is just used by my wife for Seltzer.
