Whipped cream chargers is an electric cartridge or steel cylinder filled with nitrousoxide which is employed in a whipped cream maker. The narrow end of the charger has a small foil cover which is opened to release the nitrous oxide. In some models, the charger holds a container of cream which may have an opening at the top to pour the cream into. The container may be made of glass, plastic or even metal. In some models, the cream can be poured into the container in the same manner as it would be poured into a bottle. Cream can be poured into the container according to the package directions before turning on the device for use.
In a medical model of whipped cream chargers, the nitrous oxide is activated by the intake of a recreational drug. Common recreational drugs include marijuana and heroin. Some prescription drugs, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen also produce a similar effect. The amount of the drug needed to produce a powerful effect depends on the amount of whipped cream to be produced. Generally, the greater the amount of drug, the stronger the effects will be.
Whipped cream chargers come in different shapes and sizes. There is the small hand held model which is useful for smaller amounts of cream. These are often used in schools where individuals are expected to be responsible for the distribution of the product. The size of the charger determines how much liquid can be dispensed in one dispensing. The larger the charger, the more quantity can be produced without having to turn on the machine.
Most chargers have a rubber safety handle to minimize injuries when storing the bottles. Cream is poured into the holder using the provided plastic tip or funnel, and then the lid is placed on the dispenser to hold it in place. The whipped cream bottle can then be held upside down over the gas valve. The valve prevents the mixture from leaving the nozzle and ensures that the lid remains shut.
Model rockets are another version of whipped cream chargers and are suitable for professional use. One model rocketry dispenser contains three canisters, while another two models hold only two canisters. The model rocketry dispensers are powered electrically and have a rubber valve to prevent the nitrous oxide from escaping. The nozzle is designed in a similar way to the smaller hand held chargers, and the liquid is released by pushing a button on the side.
Whipped cream chargers are commonly used in the food service industry. This versatile tool can be used to dispense single cups of the product at the push of a button, or to dispens large quantities in a short period of time. Commercial use may require the use of a narrower end version, or even a long narrow end version. Either way, most dispensers are quite efficient for both their small and large commercial use. They offer an inexpensive alternative to ready made cool treats for restaurants and other food service establishments.
