This Modern Kitchen Gadget Delivers Perfect Seltzer in Seconds

Though I can’t pinpoint exactly when it happened, sparkling drinks and seltzer waters underwent a serious rebranding. Everywhere I look there’s a new sparkling water company promising more bubbles and even more “natural” flavors. And while I’m definitely not complaining (there is nothing like the sensorial rush of crispy carbonated bubbles), I was beginning to grow concerned about the mountain of seltzer cans coming out of my kitchen every week.

Enter the AWA Carbonator – the new ultra-modern kitchen gadget that creates super bubbly sparkling water from your kitchen countertop. Inspired by naturally carbonated springs in Iceland, the AWA Carbonator is consciously designed to help curb single-use plastic waste, giving you a sustainable way to feed your seltzer habit at home. With every delicious batch of sparkling water made in the AWA’s signature reusable bottle, you’re saving hundreds of bottles and cans from landfills each year. But that’s only the tip of the (Icelandic) iceberg – read on for my full review of the AWA and visit the Design Milk Shop to order one of your own. We’re even listing it at a special introductory price (33% off!) for a limited time to celebrate the launch!

Seamless Scandinavian Design

You can’t talk about the AWA without acknowledging its sleek, modern profile. Fellow seltzer fiends will love the minimalist, Scandinavian design of the AWA Carbonator and the polished look it brings to your countertop. From its modern black body and stainless-steel details, the AWA is a refreshing change from the garish, bulky look of conventional kitchen appliances, making it a gadget you’ll be proud to display on your countertop, regardless of your kitchen’s decor style. The AWA’s accompanying Signature Bottle, embodies the same modern simplicity, allowing you to store your seltzer with ease and enjoy it while on the go.

Easy + Functional Set Up

As someone who’s only ever had store bought seltzers (never again!), I was admittedly a little worried that the AWA Carbonator might have a complicated set up. To my delight, setting up the AWA was as simple as placing the stainless-steel tray on its base, and unwrapping the Signature Bottle’s cap (watch me unbox it on our TikTok!) – taking me less than 5 minutes. Lastly, you’ll need a standard CO2 tank (sold separately) to create those oh so satisfying bubbles. Thankfully they’re incredibly easy to find on Amazon. Just twist it into the body of the carbonator without a hitch, and you’re ready for the best sparkling water you’ve ever had!

Elevated + Personalized Performance

Now that we’ve unboxed and prepped our AWA, the real fun begins. After filling the AWA bottle to its minimum or max fill line and screwing it in place, all it takes is a push of the carbonator button to inject delicious effervescence into your water. The best part? The longer you hold the button, the more sparkling bubbles you’ll get, giving you the ability to make perfect sparkling water every time. Personally, I love the refreshing bite of crisp, clean bubbles in my sparkling water, so I pushed down the button for about 5 or 6 seconds for an extra bubbly experience. What’s more, there are endless ways to enjoy AWA’s sparkling water – add a splash of cold brew for an extra kick, squeeze in some fresh lemon or lime, use it as a base for a clean and healthy mocktail (especially if you’re participating in Dry January!) – you can find more AWA recipes to experiment with here.
