As he mentioned it (when I was listening live) I decided to try and search to see what exactly he was talking about. I'm in Canada, and searching Amazon Canada yielded a lot of expensive adapters, but among them was this one, which matches Steve's description and is in the right price bracket.

So thankful I no lnoger want to use Sodastream, though I still have some cylinders and the old machine. Did make a bottle or two over the last 10 years, but at $25 for a refill not really worth it, much easier to just open the tap instead.

I would probably avoid the $30 unit on Amazon (with no reviews) and at least go with the $40 units that has a bunch of good reviews.

What do you think of this one? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08VGLV8L7/

What does this have to do with the original question?
That Sodastream is massively overpriced for what you get, and in general is a pretty poor price proposition, unless you compare it to the only other consumer based version, which is to buy soda water, at nearly the same price, as the heavily taxed sugar water with flavour. Unless you are drinking enough to make it worthwhile to find an ex commercial soda fountain, that uses regular tap water, filters and a large CO2 cylinder, to make carbonated water in bulk on demand.
