Extra information - Types of NOS

Choosing the specific type of Nitrous Oxide might seem like a hard process but it’s not. You have 3 core types, and only one of which is relevant for food use.

Most shops in Saskatoonare likely to stock 8g food grade nitrous oxide canisters.

This is the most readily available form of NOS, in the form of cream chargers which are used for  whipping cream and other culinary uses. You are able to buy these from mini mart shops, kitchen stores and of course online!

This is for cars where it’s injected into the engine, allowing it to output more power and increase performance capabilities. This type of N2O almost always has hydrogen sulphate, (A Rotten egg smell) that hinders recreational users.

Medical grade nitrous oxide is 99% pure. Only chemical supply businesses or gas companies can purchase this type of product. This grade of the NOS is widely used in medical and dental anaesthetic applications as well.

Canister size

There are also 3 core sizes of canisters. 8g, 16g and tanks. Most people will only need the 8g canisters, which are used for culinary use. 

8g Canister

This type canister is the most readily available being manufactured on a huge scale. They fit nearly all whipped cream dispensers on the market. The products advertised above are perfect for this.

16g Canisters (Double Chargers)

16g canisters are double the standard weight for N2O canisters, and simply hold more. However, not all dispensers fit this product and most require a threaded dispenser. Generally, there is no reason to use this as they are harder to source and can be more expensive. They are not necessary for most domestic purposes. Eg: Whipping cream.


Tanks of compressed NOS are normally only used in medical situations , ice cream trucks and so on. Only medical facilities, chemical businesses and catering supply companies can get them refilled. Only experienced individuals should ever use this product. If the valve off a large tank is knocked off it can blow through a wall. There are many other risks surrounding tanks of Nitrous Oxide.
