Cream charger is a stainless steel cylinder or plastic cartridge filled with nitrousoxide which is used as a whip agent in a cream dispenser. The wide end of the charger has a broken foil cover, which is released to release the nitrous oxide gas. In this way the charger supplies electricity for whipping cream. The charger uses a small electrical charge to turn on the nitrous oxide gas and get it ready to be whipped into the cream. This charger is the modern version of the old hand crank cream chargers which were very common.
The problem with these old fashioned canister cream chargers is that they were open ended and this opened up the sides of the canister. If you left the lid open for long enough the steam would build up and this would damage the canister. Also some of these canister cream whippers had very weak or non-working chargers which made them very unsafe.
As a substitute you have the newer electric charger type of dispenser and it operates much the same as the old hand crank style dispenser but this one has an electronic motor built into it which acts as the whip and heats up the nitrous oxide to create a hot steam which is then released into the dispenser nozzle. This gives the whipped cream faster speed and this means it gets to the customer faster. These dispensers do not open up like the canister ones and this makes them safe to use even more safely. As these newer dispensers are safe to use, the companies that make them are not as profitable so they cut back on the number of products that they make.
The new dispensers are made with newer technology and are much safer than the older style dispensers. They are still made out of metal but the most important component is the nitrous oxide to give the whipped cream its cold temperature and speedy whipping. The new dispensers will come in either a two or four handle version depending on how many people will be using it. It is definitely worth spending the extra money if you want to have the fastest and easiest time making all your favorite desserts.
One of the advantages of having cream chargers that you can use to make whipped cream is that they make the whipping a much faster process. You do not have to wait as long to get the dessert whipped once you have added the ingredients into your mixer. Using cream chargers makes things a lot faster and ensures that you get professional-looking results. This is especially true when you want to have several people try to make whipped cream at the same time.
Another advantage to having a cream dispenser is the high pressure setting that they give you. You can get up to forty minutes of high pressure at which time the pump will start up and begin whipping the cream. With all of the choices that are available on the market, including those that come with accessories, you should have no problem finding the right high pressure cream charger to meet your needs. It is definitely worth taking a look at the different models that are available on the market before making a decision.
