Most frequent questions and answers

Only use N2O (Nitrous oxide – Cream chargers). CO2 is used to make soda or power an air gun and cannot be used to whip cream. It’s a very common question but I assure you it not work. It will make your milk taste funny or even go bubbly.

There are lots of possible reasons but below are listed in order of likeliness:

  1. You're not shaking the dispenser. By shaking it you'll more effectively combine the NOS with the cream inside the dispenser. You need to do this before every use as well.
  2. There's a leak in your dispenser. Once you've dispensed the Nitrous Oxide into the tank and you hear a hissing sound or can feel a quick release of the gas, then this is likely this is the reason.   
  3. Use the right about of cream chargers. To whip cream in a 1-litre dispenser it should take 2 – 3 chargers. Check on the box or find the manufacturer's website if you're unsure.
  4. Make sure you're using whipping cream. The heavier the whipping cream is the less likely the cream will come out runny.
  5. The cream chargers are old. If you're using very old chargers (+10 yrs ) that you've found in a cupboard somewhere, you'd best get some new ones.
  6. As stated above make sure your using (N2O) Nitrous Oxide cream chargers and not (CO2) carbon dioxide chargers.

Until the cream goes out of date. As a good rule of thumb is that you should only keep the cream in the whipper for as long as it doesn't pass its expiry date.
