A whipped cream chargers is an electric cartridge or steel tube filled with nitrogen which is employed in a whipped cream dispenser to whip up a stiffer. The small end of a charger possesses a broken foil cover to release the nitrous gas. This is normally done via a small sharp pin inserted into the whipped cream Dispenser. The whipped cream will be drawn to the charger and pushed back into the nozzle, which is connected to the nitrous tank which supplies the nitrous oxide to the whipped cream. In case there isn’t enough charge in the charger, the whipped cream won’t be whipped and it will instead be stored until it is manually refilled.
It is important to know that there are different types of charger and it is often difficult to tell the differences between them unless you are well versed in its accessories. Some chargers are made of stainless steel, whilst others are made out of plastic. This will help to determine the thickness of the charger as well as the portability. Plastic whipped cream chargers are lightweight, however they do not have a long life span and can develop lots of static and tangling which can reduce the efficiency of the charger.
Plastic whipped cream chargers are the cheapest option available and the most portable. They tend to leak a small amount of gas, which makes them good for only using in enclosed areas like a kitchen. Stainless steel chargers are the most expensive of all the types and are generally best suited for professional use where precise timing and precise amounts of nitrous oxide are required. However they can be quite heavy, so one should not be carrying it around all the time.
Both types of charger can be plugged into a wall outlet, making them convenient. The difference between plastic and stainless steel chargers lies with the way the gas flows through the nozzle. Stainless steel chargers work by allowing the gas to flow in one direction whilst the plastic variety work in the opposite direction. This means that if you plug in the charger into a wall outlet then the output goes the other way. However, you will still be able to charge your batteries with the wrong nozzle provided the charger is compatible.
Whipped cream chargers are available in different sizes and power levels. These vary from small nitrous oxide cartridges which give you just half a tank of gas to larger models that can give you hundreds of gallons of nitrous oxide gas. There are also models which can be plugged directly into your cigarette lighter or hot air balloon. All of these options are good options depending on what your needs are and whether you want to be able to use your whipped cream chargers at home or even while you are travelling.
Whipped cream chargers are also available as stand alone units, which are useful for those who have small kitchen spaces. A smaller version can fit easily on the countertop giving you ample room for storage. Whichever model you choose you can be sure that a nitrous oxide charger will be a beneficial and much needed addition to your kitchen.
