Important Safety Usage Information about our Cream Chargers:
Cream chargers are useful in restaurants because they allow chefs to use their ingredients more effectively. They can whip one pint of cream to three or four times its original volume by adding nitrous oxide. The steel cylinders are rust-resistant and can be cleaned and reused. The chargers are also compatible with standard whipped cream dispensers.
The cream charger comes in different sizes. There are refillable models and non-refillable models. Generally, a standard cylinder holds up to 7.8 grams of nitrous oxide gas. These are sold in sets of ten, 24 or 50. It is important to purchase a quality charger, as this will save you money. It should also be made from recyclable steel and not leak.
