Aarke Carbonator 2 Vs 3. What's The Difference?

Posted by Lorraine on 21st Apr 2021

The Aarke Carbonator 3 is built for those of us who expect nothing less than quality and visual appeal in equal measure. The Aaarke Carbonator II was a huge hit and became a kitchen accessory favourite in 2020. You may be wondering why Aarke felt the need to change it. Simply because product perfection and attention to detail is what they believe in and what they do best.

The Aarke II looks incredibly stylish & its engineering is top quality too. The Aarke Carbonator 3 looks very similar to the Aarke II but a few upgrades to the machine take the Carbonator 3 to the next level as we show you in more detail below.

New, Improved Nozzle - Less Plastic, More Stainless Steel.

The original plastic nozzle and end cap on the lever have been upgraded. The Carbonator 3 features a new stainless steel nozzle and end cap. The upgrade from plastic to stainless steel creates a more premium looking product while improving the function of the machine.

The improvement to the nozzle ensures a more controlled and precise spray beam during use.

New Lever Damper

Engineers have provided additional damper control on the lever. This is a small but effective change.

Once you've created your fresh sparkling water, the carbonator 3 machine is able to release pressure from the bottle in a more controlled manner than its predecessor. This small improvement enables a greater amount of water to be carbonated at one time too.

To ensure the Carbonator 3 delivers sparking water that continues to be safe and delicious, the Aarke team undertook a thorough examination and overhaul of their award winning internal safety valve system. The Aarke, AAC3 Carbonator 3 is the world's first sparkling water maker with a Stainless Steel enclosure. 

Sleeker PET Bottle

The re-useable, BPA-free bottle has been refined and now has a more appealing aesthetic. All bottles are made from non toxic, food-grade, virgin PET.

It is still as durable as before but the use of glue to secure the metal base to the PET bottle is no longer required. The sleeker shape means each component can now be screwed tightly together. At the end of its life, each component (bottle, bottom and cap) can be unscrewed and recycled easily.

Should you already own an Aarke Carbonator, you'll be delighted to hear the improved bottle design is compatible with both the Carbonator 2 and Carbonator 3 models. It has a 0.8L capacity.

Packaging Upgrade

To keep the Carbonator 3 shining like new, all models now come with a cleaning cloth.

It couldn't be easier to enjoy sparkling water from home. It's so simple to use.

Simply fill the dedicated Aarke bottle with cold, fresh water, screw the bottle into the machine and pull the lever down! Push and hold until you hear a buzz, then release and unscrew the bottle from the machine. That's it!

The Aarke Carbonator 3 machine is compatible with CO2 cylinders from all major brands including Sodastream, Linde and AGA. You will need to purchase a Co2 cylinder as these are not included in the box.

The slim, compact Aarke Carbonator 3 sparkling water maker is a product that you'll be proud to have on show in your kitchen. It's available in many colours including gold, copper, black chrome, steel, white and matt black.

You can buy essence and syrups to flavour the carbonated water too which is a great addition to the Aarke range. Syrups include Tonic, Bitter Orange and Spicey Ginger. You can also go for fruitier flavours by adding a drop of citrus essence, elderflower and lime essence or wild strawberry essence to your fresh, sparkling water.
