How does a whipped cream dispenser make whipped cream?

You need a thickening (whipping) cream to make whipped cream. This cream has a optimal fat content between 27-36%. The N20 instantly dissolves into the fat when the N20 cream charger is inserted into the canister. When the lever is pressed, the pressure is released, causing the fat molecule’s nitrous oxide to expand and release whipped cream.

Can you use any gas?

No, only 8-gram cream chargers for nitrous oxide (N2O) or, in very uncommon circumstances, CO2 bulbs. Because it readily dissolves with the liquid and does not oxidize while in the canister, nitrous oxide is used. The flavorless and odorless N20 found in cream chargers also prevents the growth of bacteria. Other names for N20 bulbs include cream chargers, whipped cream chargers, cartridges, chargers, nitrous cream chargers, whippets, and nangs.
