Whipped cream chargers (Nitrous oxide cream chargers) are the modern version of whip cream canisters. Whichever style you prefer to call them, they can be found on countertops around America today. You can even buy one online and have it shipped directly to your home. The only difference when buying one online compared to purchasing at a local department store is that you don’t pay the premium price for the convenience. Also, buying a portable cream charger online is easier than purchasing one from a hardware store because the overhead to running a business is significantly smaller.
A cream charger contains eight g of nitrogen, which is about half a percent of the amount contained in a canister of cream. Whipped cream chargers usually contain a stainless steel container, a rubber ring or an aluminum case. High grade nitrous chargers can also contain a variety of colored powder beads, which will give your whipped cream extra flavor. The container is usually made of food grade plastic that has been printed with the manufacturer’s logo and a recyclable symbol.
The quality of cream chargers varies greatly depending on what it contains. The eight grams of nitrogen sometimes found inside of a high quality charger is much higher than the six grams of nitrogen that is found inside of a canister of whipped cream that is not of high quality. However, most people do not consider the difference enough to notice the difference.
High grade chargers are also sold in cartons that are considered to be recyclable. The canister style of chargers can hold four to twelve bottles of whipping cream, depending on its size. These dispenser styles also have a slot to store more than one bottle of cream at once. There is no need for one person to hold the cans of whipped cream in their hands while they whip it up, which saves everyone time and energy. Because the cream chargers have a rubber ring or case, the bottles will not leak and the unit will remain well-maintained.
In comparison to electric cream whippers and the older style electric cream whipper, high quality whip cream chargers use nitrous oxide instead of oil. Nitrous oxide is a harmless gas that is created by an electric motor. It is much safer than petroleum-based lube, which can create a fire if it breaks. In addition, nitrous oxide is not made with any harmful chemicals or toxic gases.
One important factor of cream chargers is their environmental impact, because unlike other dispensers, the newer chargers do not release any hazardous gasses into the atmosphere. However, many companies still insist on using oil as fuel, which is a much larger environmental concern than using a non-chemical based fuel. In order to find the best electric cream chargers on the market, be sure to read customer reviews online and read labels to ensure that the charger brand you are interested in purchasing is compatible with the brand of whipped cream you plan on using it with. You may also want to research into whether or not these chargers are compatible with products like baby formula cream, whipped cream, and baby food.
Some chargers require that the canister and the cream mixture are completely separated, such as when using with large milk or cream-based drinks. If you purchase a canister charger, make sure the separator is large enough to allow this to happen. Also, be sure to check the instructions on the canister holder itself to determine how long the charger will last before needing to be changed.
The most effective and environmentally friendly method of using whipped cream chargers is by using non-chemical based alternatives. Natural cream based dispensers provide a healthier alternative to standard powdered drinks. Natural dispensers are also more cost effective, which makes them the better option if cost is an issue for you. The most effective cream-based charger contains 8 gram cartridges, which means it is not only cheaper, but it is also easier to replace the empty cartridge than a canister dispenser that requires you to empty each and every one.
