 Carbonated Fruit

Fruit is delicious as it is, but have you tried carbonated fruit? You have always been able to do this using  dry ice, but that is never usually readily available and hard to come by. Carbonated fruit is delicious,

really fun and pretty easy. All you need is a soda siphon or whipped cream dispenser and C02 cartridges. The Co2 cartridges are the same size as the N20 cartridges so there will be no problem using C02 in your whipped cream dispenser —  here are the steps!

Fizzy Fruit

  1. Fill the whip cream dispenser (or siphon) with fruit
  2. Screw on top securly
  3. Charge with one soda charger (two if you have the 1 L whipper)
  4. Leave in for a few hours
  5. Release pressure with valve  – ( don’t forget this step!)
  6. Unscrew top and serve!

It’s a fun way for kids to eat fruit, and also a great decorative added for mixed drinks or garnish on top of desserts!

Older Soda Siphons

Every day we get people calling up asking “Do you have a charger holder that will fit my old soda siphon?”. A lot of people pick up soda siphons at estate sales, garage sales,thrift stores or on Ebay; you can find old soda siphons in many places. It is very important that before you purchase a used soda siphon you make sure it comes with a charger holder, if there is no charger holder, don’t waste your time —  its often very difficult to find old charger holders.  We try very hard to find the right fit to older soda siphons, but the reality is often times the charger holders that will work are unobtainable.  The best luck we have had to find older soda siphon parts is to to check on Ebay. Here are a few brands that we do not have charger holders that will fit for.

We do NOT have parts for:
BOC
Kidde
Soda King
Sparklets
Unknown soda siphons / seltzer bottles with no name.

The only soda siphon charger holders that we carry is the new ISI soda siphon charger holder, which is universal with the New* Classic Glass Soda  Siphon(Note: Not the *Old classic glass soda siphon, in most cases this charger holder it is much to big.). We also have Mosa charger holders that only fit Mosa  soda siphons(also about an inch in diameter).  To see if your siphon will fit this charger holder that we carry the first place to start is measuring  the metal screw  on where you would screw the charger holder.

ISI Soda Siphons


ISI changed their model of there soda siphon in 1996 the soda siphon on the right is the *NEW soda siphon while the soda siphon on the left is the old model. The charger holders are different and the new soda siphon charger holder doesn’t  fit onto the old one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Charger holder on the right is new, where the charger holder on the left(with wings) is old.

Here is a diagram of the old ISI soda siphon model, and the new ISI soda siphon model.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A good indication of how old your ISI soda siphon is, is by looking at the bottom of the siphon, here is the diagram:

 

 

 

Soda siphons are a great tool to make soda water and an environmentally smarter choice.  But its important before you obtain a used siphon you have the parts you need for it to work. If you don’t have a charger holder, your soda siphon will not work.  If you have any questions about different soda siphons or what kind of soda siphon you have feel free to leave a comment or shoot us an email!

 

The Green Solution.

Soda Siphons are an “Active Green” product, meaning that consumers  are actively reducing their CO2 footprint every time they make soda  or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves.

Because soda siphons use water straight from the tap, it  makes traditional store bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste is created, and fewer bottled beverages must be transported from manufacturers to distributors to stores to homes. Globally, 206 billion liters of bottled water were consumed in 2008 (Zenith International Global Bottled Water Report, 2008). The energy required to make water bottles in the US only, is equivalent to 17 million barrels of oil (Container Recycling Institute, 2002).

According to the US Recycling Institute, more than 80% of bottles in the US do not get recycled and end up in landfills. Also, an estimated 4.7 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions were produced in the process of replacing the 134 billion bottles and cans not recycled in 2005.

Water bottles play a huge role in American culture, but they shouldn’t. We have the opportunity to offset the environmental damage numbers such as these bring. Unlike the tragedy in the gulf, we can do something about this! Soda siphons are a great solution and the flavors are endless! with an endless amount of syrups, your mixture is your own.
