SodaStream Fizzi Makes U.S. Debut

SodaStream’s new entry-level Fizzi home sparkling water maker is now arriving on retail shelves in the U.S.

Unveiled earlier this year at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago under the name Spirit, the starter package carries a retail price of $79.99. The package includes the Fizzi machine, a BPA-free 1-liter carbonating bottle and CO2 cylinder. The company did not specify which retailers would be selling the new unit.

According to the company, the Fizzi is its slimmest design and is engineered with the modern kitchen or dorm room in mind.

“The Fizzi was developed to bring the ease and joy of preparing fresh sparkling water at home to more people at an accessible pricepoint,” said Daniel Birnbaum, SodaStream’s chief executive officer.
