How To Use A Cream Whipper: Beginners Guide

 

Are you looking to expand your culinary skills? Is this year the year to start creating creative cooking concoctions? Well that’s great and all, but how do you get started? Try a new recipe? A new tool? A new kitchen?

 

Before you start dashing to the nearest supermarket and stocking your shelves with everything cooking related - save your money.

 

Look no further, as we roll all those new experiences into one - with a cream whipper. 

 

What is a cream whipper, you ask, let’s find out. 

What Is A Cream Whipper?

A cream whipper is also known as a whipped cream dispenser. It’s a universal kitchen tool that’s used to make various types of desserts, creams, sauces, foams, and most notably whipped cream. 

 

The dispenser, which is sometimes known as a ‘Syphon’ or ‘Whipper’, is made from several components. 


First, there is the dispenser body or 'chamber', which is made of aluminium or stainless steel. Then there is the top of the dispenser, which consists of the valve and gasket. This part relies on gas bulbs to pressurise the dispenser, which instantly dissolves the gas into a liquid. When the valve is opened, the liquid is forced out of the nozzle by the high pressure which transforms the liquid into a whip, mousse or foam.

 

Basically, it’s a hand-held kitchen appliance that helps mix several ingredients together to get that soft, pillowy texture. 

 

What Is A Cream Whipper Used For?

A cream whipper is most commonly used for making both hot and cold additions to desserts and hot drinks, like whipped cream. It is made by using a thickening cream with an optimal fat content between 27-36%. 

 

When charging one of Taste Revolution’s N2O Cream Charger into the canister, the N2O instantly dissolves the fat. Then, when the lever is pressed it releases the pressure causing the gas to expand within the fat molecule, dispensing whipped cream. 

 

It saves a lot of time and effort because a cream whipper creates up to 3x the amount as opposed to whipping air into the cream. This makes it ideal for commercial venues such as bakeries, cafés and even, your own kitchen.

 

Although this may be a dispenser's primary function, they can also add texture to components of any savoury dishes. For example, they are perfect for making foams, mousses and even infusions. 

 

The great thing about cream whippers is that they allow delicate mixtures to be kept for longer in the dispenser as there’s no exposure to the air and Nitrous Oxide hosts preservative properties to keep recipes fresh for up to 14 days. This makes it a valuable and versatile tool for you to have.

How To Clean Your Whipped Cream Dispenser

Some cream whipper models are made from stainless steel, which means the bottle and head are dishwasher safe. We advise you to read the information supplied on your cream whipper. 

 

If you need to or prefer to hand-clean your cream whipper, first ensure that the dispenser isn’t charged with nitrous oxide - if there is some leftover, press the lever to release the pressure. 

 

Then, follow our simple steps: 

  1. Unscrew the head, the nozzle, the protective cap and charger holder and leave to one side. 
  2. If there’s a separate metal base, remove it. 
  3. Turn the dispenser over and remove the gasket ring from inside the head. 
  4. Push the pressure valve down where it can be fully removed. 
  5. Use a sponge or cloth with warm, soapy water and gently rub the parts until they are clean. 
  6. Ensure you clean the pressure valve thoroughly and remove any leftover cream. 
  7. Allow your cream whipper to air dry before reassembling.
