Queen of the kitchen and TV cooking Loraine Pascale has sparked a monumental sales increase in the retro kitchen gadget the SodaStream.

The Baking Made Easy presenter declared ‘Oh yes, it’s official. Bubbles…are back’ on her twitter feed sending fans heading for the SodaStream website to snap up the latest must-have kitchen gadget.

Stylish soft drinks maker, SodaStream, has seen sales of it’s Source machine nearly double in the past week after Lorraine was the latest star to tweet about using the drinks maker.

Home improvement guru Linda Barker also revealed her love of SodaStream earlier this month, tweeting a picture of a black Source machine sitting alongside a silver tea set in her stylish kitchen.

She captioned the picture: Couldn’t resist it! Get me with my trendy new black SodaStream in my trendy black stale kitchen. Bring on the fizz!’

‘When you know how to use the machine, it is brilliant!’

The drinks company saw an 85 per cent increase in sales of it’s Source machine in the past week, as would-be domestic goddesses look to follow Lorraine’s lead and jump on the trend for home-made sparkling water.
