A whipped cream charger and a small metal canister containing nitrous oxide can help you prepare the fresh whipped cream.


What is a whipped cream dispenser?

A whipped cream dispenser is a metal (aluminum or steel) based 1-liter container used to whip cream. The dispenser holds the cream and provides space for the reaction of nitrous oxide and cream fat.

The whipped cream dispenser has a flower-shaped nozzle, a lever, and a nitrous oxide injection end. The cream or liquid is released from the dispenser with high pressure when you press the lever. The forceful release of the cream allows the gas to expand and form bubbles. This is how the cream transforms into foam or gives it a more creamy texture.

What is a whipped cream charger?

A whip cream chargers are small canisters that contain 8 to 16 grams of nitrous oxide. The nitrous oxide bulb is made of high-grade metals. For instance, aluminum, silver, or stainless steel. Food-grade nitrous oxide is filled inside the canister. The nitrous oxide solubilizes in the liquid and starts forming bubbles.


How to use Whipped Charger and Dispenser?

  • Insert the metal cartridge containing nitrous oxide in the charger holder.
  • Screw the holder with the dispenser
  • The dispenser had a pin that ruptures the foil of the cartridge and releases the N2O gas.

  • Pressing the lever releases the liquid with the pressure, and the gas inside the liquid expands.


Collecting accessories

It is easy to use the nitrous oxide whipped cream dispenser and charger. You need to have

  • Whipped cream with a high-fat content of around 27 to 36%
  • Whipped cream dispenser
  • Nitrous oxide whipped cream charger
  • Flavoring agent (if you want to add).


Dispenser filling

First, mix the flavor or sugar in 500ml of cream. Don’t add granular sugar, instead use sugar powder. After forming the mixture, open the lid of the dispenser and pour the prepared liquid into the dispenser. Fill the dispenser till the marked line. Overfilling of dispensers results in the formation of poorly developed foam.


Loading the N2O Charger

Remove the charger holder from the dispenser and insert the whipped cream cartridge in the holder. Screw the holder and the nitrous oxide canister with the head of the dispenser.

The dispenser head has a piercing pin that ruptures the foil of the nitrous oxide cream charger. It releases the N2O gas inside the dispenser. You will hear a whooshing sound when the gas starts rushing into the dispenser.



After tightening the canister with the dispenser, shake it for 30 seconds to 1 minute. You will feel the dispenser’s temperature decrease. This shows the gas is mixed with the liquid.

Now press the lever to release the whipped cream to make the delicious cake, pies, donuts, ice cream, or creamy coffee.
