The Power of Liss Cream Chargers
Whipped cream adds the perfect finishing touch to any dessert, freshly made coffee, drink, or appetizer. Whether you're a culinary enthusiast at home or running a start-up restaurant, mastering the art of making fresh whipped cream is a must.However, it can be a daunting task, especially for beginners. Manual whisking can leave your arm feeling numb, while using a standard mixer may not give you the perfectly whipped consistency you desire.
The good news is, there's an easier way to achieve a beautiful swirl of whipped cream as a delightful topping for your desserts. All you need are two essential tools: a whip cream dispenser and a quality cream charger.
Fortunately, Liss offers exceptional cream chargers that perfectly complement any type or brand of cream dispensers. Let's take a quick look at Liss cream chargers and how to use them.
What is a LISS Cream Charger
A Liss cream charger is a compact steel cartridge filled with 100% pure, tasteless, and colorless nitrous oxide (N2O). This gas serves as a whipping agent or cream propellant, making it perfect for creating light and fluffy whipped cream. The chargers are constructed from 100% recyclable steel, ensuring they are not only functional but also environmentally friendly.
Each charger contains precisely 8 g of nitrous oxide, the ideal amount to transform 1/2 liter of liquid cream into a generous 1.5 liters of whipped cream. This level of efficiency surpasses traditional manual whisking or standard mixing methods.
It's important to note that the small steel containers are highly pressurized to ensure the precise 8 grams or 10 mL of nitrous oxide inside. For safety purposes, it is recommended to avoid exposing the chargers to temperatures above 50 degrees Celsius or subjecting them to excessive mechanical pressure.
What is a Cream Dispenser
Whip cream chargers are inserted into cream dispensers, which are durable stainless steel or aluminum cylinders, to effortlessly dispense voluminous and perfectly firm whipped cream. By releasing nitrous oxide, the cream chargers activate the high pressure inside the dispenser. The gas instantly dissolves into the liquid whip cream, magically transforming it into a delightful instant whip, foam, or mousse.
Why LISS Cream Charger Contains Nitrous Oxide
This tasteless gas dissolves readily with the liquid form of cream and will not oxidize inside the canister, compared with other gases. The nitrous oxide inside the Liss cream charger inhibits bacterial growth making it safer to use.
Nitrous oxide is considered safe in the culinary world when used in small amounts. Still, this gas must be used with caution as it has a weak anesthetic effect if inhaled in concentrated or huge quantities.
The nitrous oxide in a Liss cream charger has a relatively small quantity, enough to act as a whip cream propellant, without causing any side effects.
How to make a perfect whipped cream with LISS
To ensure optimal results with the cream dispenser and cream charger, it is important to use liquid cream with a fat content ranging from 27-36%. The fat component plays a crucial role in combining with the nitric oxide from the cream charger.When you press the lever on the cream dispenser, it releases the pressure from the cream charger, allowing the nitric oxide to mix with the cream. This infusion causes the fat molecules to expand, resulting in a delightfully smooth and airy whipped cream.
Thanks to this innovative process, the cream dispenser can produce up to 4 times more whipped cream compared to traditional manual whisking methods.
Steps on how to use the LISS cream charger
It's actually easy! Here are the basic steps on how to use the LISS cream charger:
1. Prepare the cream dispenser or whipper. Rinse well before filling it with cream.
2. Take your well-chilled fresh cream and any other components you'd like to add, such as syrups, sugars, or extracts for added flavor. Keep in mind the permissible quantity of liquid indicated on the dispenser, and fill the cylinder accordingly.
3. Once the dispenser is filled, screw the head on evenly and firmly, ensuring there are no leaks.
4. Now it's time to insert the LISS cream charger into the charger holder. Screw the cream charger onto the inlet valve until you hear a loud hissing sound. This indicates that the nitrous oxide, which is the content of the charger, has been released into the dispenser.
5. For each filling, one charger is typically sufficient. An 8 g canister can whip up to half a liter of cream. After screwing the charger, give the dispenser a gentle shake four to five times up and down. If your recipe includes well-cooled light cream or other ingredients, you may shake it up to 10 times for optimal results. With these simple steps, you'll be able to easily and effectively use the LISS cream charger for your creations!
6. Unscrew the charger to produce a slight hissing sound. Remove and discard empty steel chargers.
7. Hold the dispenser vertically, about 1 cm right above the surface. Press the lever lightly to dispense the freshly whipped cream. If the cream is not firm enough, you make shake further. When you are planning to use it later, don't shake it again.
1. Intended Use: Liss cream chargers are specifically designed as a cream propellant or whipping agent. They should not be purchased or used for other purposes.
2. Handling Cartridges: Never dispose of a cartridge that still contains pressurized nitrous oxide. Ensure proper disposal to avoid any risks.
3. Temperature and Mechanical Forces: Avoid exposing the cream chargers to high temperatures or subjecting them to excessive mechanical forces. This helps maintain their integrity and ensures safety.
4. Burns and Tissue Damage: If you accidentally come into contact with freezing nitrous oxide and experience burns, seek immediate medical attention. Freezing nitrous oxide can cause extensive damage to your tissues. Please follow these safety precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience with Liss cream chargers.
