Making whipped cream with a whipped cream dispenser and cream chargers
Making whipped cream from scratch can be an enjoyable activity. However, making whipped cream with a whipped cream dispenser and cream chargers can also be quick, easy and fun! You can also do it at home by yourself with very little cost or skill required.
You can use the same recipe ingredients as stated above and just put all the ingredients into the whipped cream dispenser, add the nitrous oxide from the cream chargers, then give it a shake for a minute or so and you are all set to go. The best part is that you can’t under or over whip (and create butter) the cream, it comes out perfect every time. Not only that but it will whip the cream to four times its original unwhipped volume, which is double the volume that you can achieve by whipping cream without nitrous cream chargers. This is because the nitrous oxide dissolves in the cream fat under pressure in the whipped cream dispenser and expands within the cream once it comes out of the dispenser at normal room pressure.
