Cream Whippers and Cream Chargers

Cream whippers are used in conjunction with nitrous oxide (N2O) cream chargers primarily to rapidly aerate cream. However, the uses and benefits of cream whippers and cream chargers go far beyond this. In a nutshell, cream whippers/chargers offer a variety of uses and are limited only by the bounds of your imagination!

Healthier Crisp Taste

Instead of cream chargers, you can use stabilisers like gelatine or agar to quickly achieve the texture of whipped cream. However, these stabilisers are high in fat and affect the quality and taste of the finished product. Using nitrous oxide, you can steer clear from the calories and better preserve the taste of your culinary creations.

Preservative Action

Cream whippers comprise airtight cannisters and closed systems which also chill products instantly. The effect of chilling is that is preserves consistency and quality of products contained within the airtight cannister. Even the most delicate of food products, which contains eggs or dairy, can be preserved for longer than usual in this way.

Various Culinary Uses

Cream whippers can be used with nitrous oxide (N2O) cream chargers to aerate all manner of foods and beverages. These range from sauces for savoury dishes such as pasta to a whole host of desserts. The benefit of aerating food products is that air alters their consistency, can improve the eating and aesthetic experience and even improve flavour.

Nitrous Oxide and the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016

In 1772, James Priestly discovered the colourless gas that is nitrous oxide (N2O). In the years following its discovery, its anaesthetic effects were promptly realised. Since then, it has been used with oxygen for pain relief. Alternatively, nitrous oxide is known as ‘laughing gas,’ due to the euphoric sensations it can elicit upon consumption by inhalation.

In recent years, the inhalation of nitrous oxide for its psychoactive properties and use as a recreational drug has become increasingly popular. Recreational users often crudely pierce nitrous oxide cartridges, widely available in the form of cream chargers for cream whippers. The gas from the cartridge is then captured in a balloon, from which it is then inhaled by the user.

However, with the increasing prevalence of the use of nitrous oxide as a recreational drug, health and safety issues have arisen. Piercing a cannister containing pressurised gas, in the improper way, can cause serious injury. Furthermore, repeated exposure to nitrous oxide can lead to vitamin B-12 deficiency or anaemia, which could cause pose serious health risks.

According to the 2016 Psychoactive Substances Act, the use, sale and distribution of nitrous oxide for its psychoactive properties is illegal. However, exemptions to the law cover cream whippers and cream chargers.

Why Is Nitrous Oxide Used In Whipped Cream?

First, what is whipped cream? Whipped cream is heavy cream that has been whipped (with a whisk) until it becomes light and fluffy. Heavy cream contains at least 36% milkfat. When whipped, the fat forms a foamy structure that holds tiny pockets of air. The food scientists call these “fat-stabilized air bubbles” (check out the pictures). Cream whipped by hand becomes twice the volume of the original liquid.

Inside the whipped cream can heavy cream and nitrous oxide gas mix under pressure. The nitrous oxide permeates the cream, dissolving into the milk fat. When you press the button, the back pressure first shoots the nitrous+cream mix out of the can. Once out of the can the pressure keeping the nitrous dissolved is gone and the nitrous comes boiling out of the cream and in so doing foams it. The boiling is such that the volume of foamed cream is four times the original volume of liquid cream. This is why nitrous foamed cream is lighter than hand whipped cream.

You could make a whipped cream dispenser using a different gas but it would just spray an ooze of thickened milk. This is what you see at the very end of a whipped cream can when the nitrous is gone. Without the nitrous boiling out of the cream, it is just a thick sludge. Similarly, if you were to use a less fatty cream (1/2&1/2 (15% fat) or whole milk (3% fat)) there would be less nitrous dissolved and therefore a less foamy result.

Nitrous Oxide is also bacteriostatic — it stops bacteria from growing (perhaps because it permeates their tissues as well). This allows the canned whipping cream to last longer in the fridge.

Ps: Cool Whip is not whipped cream. It has less than 2% dairy in it. Gross. Stop eating that!

How to use a cream whipper despencer

Did you just get a new cream whipper? You want to impress your friends and family with gorgeous cakes, picture perfect hot chocolates, and rich fluffy cream and strawberries. But can’t figure out how to work the things! No fear brave bakers. Just follow these simple steps to using a cream whipper.

1. Get to know the parts of your whipped cream dispenser

Your cream whipper is made up of a bottle, a screw on headpiece, and pipping tip. Wash these throughly before use. You may need to buy the cream charger (nitrous oxide bulb) separate.

2. Insert the cream charger (cream cartridge/nitrous oxide bulb)

The cream charger goes into the cartridge holder which is opposite the handle. This piece screws off and the bulb fits perfectly inside. The round end goes in first as the tip will be punctured when screwed back on. This releases the gas into the cream to produce the whipped effect. You will need to replace your cream charger after every use, as typically they only hold enough nitrous to produce 1 liter of cream.

3. Add your cream

Pour your cream into the bottle. How much cream you pour in depends on what size cream dispenser you purchased. For this we will say 1 pint of cream and 2 tablespoons of confectioner’s sugar. At this time also add and flavouring syrup or vanilla extract.

4. Put it all together

Place the headpiece on the bottle and tighten. Also replace the cartridge holder on the headpiece and tighten quickly so that no gas escapes.

5. Shake Shake Shake

Now the best part. Shake the bottle so that the cream and sugar can mix, usually for 1-2 minutes. Now turn the cream whipper vertically and squeeze the handle. Immediatly fluffy whipped cream will be produced to garnish your favourite cakes, fruits, and coffee’s.
