LOS ANGELES, CA – Flat or sparkling? Carbonated water and carbonated beverages are part of our daily lives. The new Purefizz Soda Maker by Mastrad is an easy way to make carbonated beverages at home with any beverage.

It is a simple portable stainless steel bottle with a small port that allows you to insert a CO2 cartridge to carbonate any beverage.  The bottle makes 3 beverages (3 cups of liquid) per CO2 cartridge.

Purefizz test:

Water from the refrigerator:

Step 1- fill the bottle with water, step 2- place the lid with the port onto the bottle, step 3- place the CO2 cartridge into the holder and screw into the port thus releasing the CO2 gas into the bottle, step 4-shake the bottle 10-15 times, step 5-let the bottle rest for three to five minutes, step 6- serve.

The water was incredibly fizzy, delicious tasting and very easy to make.

Step 3- place the CO2 cartridge into the holder and screw into the port thus releasing the CO2 gas into the bottle;

Step 4-shake the bottle 10-15 times;

Step 5-let the bottle rest for three to five minutes;

Step 6- serve.

The orange juice was also very fizzy and the bubbles made the orange juice almost frothy on the top.

The Purefizz made regular orange juice into a fun refreshment.

Pros:

First, the Purefizz is very easy to use (a few mistakes were made at first).

Second, the results are exactly what you would expect from carbonated water bought from a store.

Third, you can carbonate any beverage with ease.

Fourth, it is small and portable. It doesn’t have to take up prime real estate on your counter and you can make it anywhere.

Cons:

First, the Purefizz has no max line and indicates it shouldn’t have more than .75 liters. So, for the first few uses and until you get comfortable with the amounts you might want to measure out the liquid.  

Second, the carbonation doesn’t last very long so you should only make your carbonated beverage when you are ready to drink it. Thankfully it is a small bottle so you aren’t making large amounts that will be wasted.

Overall Rating: 3/4 cup out of 1 cup. The Purefizz would be a great for anyone who loves carbonated beverages and it could be a great tool for a bartender to add pizzazz to specialty cocktails. Not only is it a great choice because it makes delicious beverages but it’s also a greener choice. You don’t have to purchase, as many carbonated beverages in bottles plus the CO2 cartridges are recyclable. 

Purchasing Info: The Purefizz is available for $80 at www.shopmastrad.com and needs one 8-gram CO2 cartridge to function properly. The CO2 cartridges can be purchased on Amazon.
