A Beginners’ Guide To Using Whipped Cream Chargers

Learn below the mechanism behind whipped cream dispensers and the role N2O whipped cream chargers play after being introduced in the dispenser. Read this complete Beginner’s Guide to using Whipped Cream chargers.

It will be hard to resist trying on your own the tricks behind every culinary preparation using a Fast Gas Cream Charger. 

The Process Of Using An N20 Cream Charger And Whipped Cream Dispenser 

The process of using nitrous oxide gas (N20) for whipping is as simple as introducing the gas into a liquid. It is similar to using a soda siphon. The only difference lies in the gas used in whip cream chargers 615g. While soda siphon cartridges have pressurized carbon dioxide gas (CO2), a cream charger contains pressurized nitrous oxide (N2O) gas. So, it is due to the distinctive properties of the two gases that you get to use both for different culinary preparations. 

  • Carbon dioxide is more soluble in water than nitrous oxide. 
  • Carbon dioxide is acidic, whereas N2O is neutral. It is the acidity of CO2 that makes gassy beverages somewhat spicy. 
  • When under pressure, nitrous oxide can easily be dissolved in fats. For instance, liquids with nearly 27% fat can quickly be whipped using a Fast Gas Cream Charger. 

Science Behind Whipped Cream Dispensers And Cream Chargers

There is no rocket science behind creating whipped cream using cream chargers. Whatever liquid you want to make food foam from, you need to place it in a dispenser bottle. What comes next? We will explain you here.

  1. To begin with, open the top of the whipped cream dispenser. 
  2. Next, add the desired liquid content into the bottle to be whipped.
  3. After adding the content, screw the top of the dispenser and place a cream charger into the holder. 
  4. Make sure you set it correctly. 
  5. Pull the bottle’s trigger and slowly hear the sound of the gas.
  6. Shake the dispenser well to mix the content and flavoring agents. 
  7. Finally, press the lever down if you intend to use the mix immediately. 

One important tip is to use cream chargers when the mixture is still warm, allowing the gas to penetrate deeply into the substance. 

How Long Does Whipped Cream Last?

If kept refrigerated, whipped cream inside a dispenser can last up to 10 days. The shelf life of whipped cream may also depend on the ingredients used and the expiry date of the whipping cream. 

How to Clean A Cream Whip Charger Dispenser

To clean effectively:

  1. Separate the different parts of the bottle (vase, head, and nozzles).
  2. Apply soap and water.
  3. If the metal base is detachable, remove that too for the best results.

You can also use your dishwasher to clean it, but only if your product manual says so. However, we recommend you wash the dispenser top manually utilizing a piece of cloth. 

Reasons To Use A Fast Gas Cream Charger

Here are a few reasons why using a whipped cream charger is worth it:

  • Fast gas contains 615gr of capacity, which means you can whip up large amounts of cream.
  • Fast gas helps you save up to 50% recharge time. Recharging with cream chargers of 8g can be tedious and not optimize your time. 
  • Fast gas cream chargers give home cooks ample room to experiment with toppings and sauces, making cooking even more exciting.

Now that you know almost everything you need to know about 580g N2O cylinders, you are open to endless possibilities. If you haven’t bought one yet, there is no point in delaying it.
