Setting up of the Soda Stream Machine was very simple. Just remove the cover from the cylinder bottle and twist into place. It is rugged in design and stylish at the same time. I am writing this review in exchange for this product. You can set the Soda Stream Machine anywhere due to not needing a power source. Adding the soda stream to any bottle is as easy as pressing a button. You can press up to 3 times for maximum carbonation to occur. The convenience of having a soda drink any time you want is handy. This saves from looking for sales and stocking up on cases of soda pop. I highly recommend this easy to work machine.
