A whipped cream charger is typically a metal cartridge or steel tube filled with nitrousoxide which is commonly used as a whipping agent in an electric whipped cream dispenser, also known as a can dispenser, in a cream or sugar mixture. The narrow end of the charger has a broken foil cover which is ripped open to release the nitrous oxide gas. This is generally done by a small sharp edged pin placed inside the electric whipped cream pump. This charger may not have a safety switch. A charger that includes a safety switch is preferred because the safety switch will allow the outlet to shut off if the charger’s power is interrupted. Chargers without safety switches are commonly sold with the package but are not recommended.
There are many different brands and models of whipped cream chargers on the market. Many brands contain a small amount of nitrous oxide gas in their tanks. These chargers are effective and provide instant whip cream results, however they take longer to ship than the nitrous charged chargers. In order to be sure the charger you select will work properly for your dispensing needs, you should make sure to test it before you purchase it. Most suppliers offer a two week trial period. Test the product prior to purchasing to ensure that it will work according to your needs.
The best brand of whipped cream charger to purchase is a manufacturer you have confidence in. If the charger you select is not recommended by the manufacturer, be sure to ask the supplier or manufacturer for other recommendations. Testing the dispenser is often easy to do. Simply place the dispenser into the dispenser, turn it on, and see the nitrous oxide come out of the dispenser and into your cup. If there is no visible or noticeable nitrous oxide coming from the bottle, your selection is probably a good one.
Using a cream dispenser that does not release any of the nitrous oxide into your dispensing cup may be a problem. These dispensers are often inexpensive and it is difficult to find reviews on them. One cream dispenser review site recommends not using the premade cream chargers because of an accident that happened when a cup with a premade cream went through the air vents instead of going through the dispenser nozzle. The user managed to get his hand burned on the pump and he sued the company. Many people do not want to spend money on a product they may not use properly.
To avoid this type of situation, make sure the dispensers you are interested in are made to release nitrous oxide only. There are many different manufacturers of this type of charger and they all have very good products. One of the best suppliers of premade whipped cream chargers is Mountain Dew. If you want premade, you should check out their website for the specific model they offer. You can also purchase premade dispensers separately if you prefer to assemble one yourself. Some other good brands of cream chargers include Whirlpool, Sun-Mar Corporation, Lelight, and Garaventa.
A great way to buy whipped cream chargers is to browse online stores. You can find both new and used products online. Some online stores even offer free shipping and handling for a limited time period. Online stores are a convenient way to buy all types of dispensers, whether you want nitrous oxide, premade dispensers, or single cream waffle makers. Whether you are buying for yourself or buying as a gift, a whipped cream charger will make the experience much easier and more convenient.
