Tempted to buy, but how long do you think the seal will last? I mean it IS a very acidic beverage that it has to hold under pressure....

Don't drop it somehow and have it land on the dispensing lever, it's not pretty..

This looks cool, except once the fill line falls below the tap, it won't dispense anymore. I suppose you could then just use it like a normal bottle, except it would have a hole in the side...

Seems like a complex solution to a simple problem. If you can't finish off 2 liters in 2 days, start buying cans or mini-cans.

Not sure where you got the idea that the product makes a second hole in the bottle. There's a plastic tube that comes from the base to the tap. The soda is sourced from the valve attached to the top of the 2l. Therefore the dispenser works until the last drop.

@okcoolthnx:
I would worry about the acid-vinegar is thousands of times more acidic and plastic is impervious to it.pressure?No idea

@drwurm:
I would say you are probably wrong. Once the soda falls below the tap it will still pour due to the pressure inside the bottle from the CO2 coming out of the soda solution and into the air space of the bottle. On the other hand I'm not sure I believe this will keep your soda fizzy. As you drink the soda the air space becomes larger and the CO2 will come out of the soda to fill that space.

I do however agree that at some point it will stop pouring while there is still liquid in the bottle. At some point the co2 pressure will drop enough that it will not be able to push the soda up the spout.

If you really want to keep 2 liters around for eternity I suggest you pay more and get yourself a carbonator cap (look around on homebrew sites) and a CO2 tank and some fittings. At this point you can turn koolaid and other mixes into soda as well.

In the photo, it's difficult to see how the dispenser is attached to the base. It sort of looks as if it has pierced the bottle, which may be why one commenter thought..... smiles

Considering I get through most of a 2-liter bottle before it goes flat, and considering a 2-liter bottle of any name-brand pop is on sale for less than a buck every day of the week, and considering the added hassle of using and cleaning this device, I'll have to say that I'd have to go through at least 100 bottles of soda to break even on this thing and another hundred to make it worth the hassle, by which time the device will have worn out or been lost anyway. Pass.

I think we're all missing the boat here...Pepsi Twist!? Where would one find such a delicious nectar?

@drwurm: If you enlarge the picture you can better see how it works.

I'm looking at this thinking, "Yeah, but I don't have room i the fridge for soda". It just occurred to me that it doesn't have to be kept in the refrigerator any more with this device than without it. I agree that it's a big solution for a little problem, though.
