The loveliest part of any dinner is a dessert, and if it is made from or dressed with a whipped cream that is for sure will be a culmination.
Would it be the happy end or not really, of course depends on taste. No matter who you are, professional chef or cook lover, only one little thing could ruin your dessert and dinner, and this is a whip charger.
I love to cook and recently faced a problem of a bad charger for my whip dispenser by testing a new one and I would like to save my readers from the same mistake by this review which will help us to figure out the best whip charger.
1.iSi Professional – Best Whipped Cream Charger
First of all iSi is a well-known brand which is in the business more than 50 years and that mean a lot. By buying any staff from them you could be calm, because usually everything goes as you expect it.
The charger work as it should from the first step when you applying it to your dispenser till the end when the job is already done.
The neck of iSi professional charger made a bit shorter than usual, it helped them to make it up to 20% more capacious. For us it mean economy, what is great.
For the first time it seems that the price is a disadvantage of this charger, but from the same dispenser using ISI Professional and other charger you would get different value of whipped cream.
It mean that you could serve more portions by using ISI professional instead of any other charger.
Or for making the same amount of portions you will need only 1 charger of ISI professional instead of 2 charges of any other producer. So if the price would seem a bit high, think about previous examples.
Talking about the result I have to say that extra capacity doesn’t influenced in a bad way to the quality and the whipped cream made with this charger was fantastic.
Whipped cream turned out to be very airy and light, the taste is saturated with exactly those ingredients that were added during the preparation of the cream, no any unusual smell or taste.
After usage of charger there weren’t any oil laces inside the dispenser or something similar what could be found there after poor quality chargers.
2.iSi Chargers – Best Whip Cream Chargers For All Dispensers
At the second run I took usual and common charger from iSi which everybody knows, because it is on the market for almost forever.
You probably know that feeling when you are playing with an old friend into your favourite game or working on repeating task just another time and you know what will be at the next moment. Working with the classic iSi charger means that nothing could go wrong.
This old school 8 gram charger is perfect and very important – it work with all common whip cream dispensers.
The most important, the result. It was also great, the whipped cream was fluffy and tasty as it was all the time before.
Cream made with the help of this iSi charger also turned to be without any strange smell or any strange taste. Plus one point to iSi.
3.Ultra-Purewhip – Best Wholesale Whip Chargers
Purewhip is a new offer but it confidently gaining positions on the market and popularity.
It represents the classic 8 gram nitrous oxide whipped cream charger made from steel with a very attractive design.
Good news – it work with any common whip dispenser including iSi, EurKitchen, ICO, Kayser, Otis Classic, Chef’s Brand, Best-Whip, Whip It and many others.

Best Whip Cream Chargers – How to buy whip chargers for the best price?
Best price per 1 charger usually comes with a big quantity per 1 check, it mean that the bigger box you chose, the lower price per 1 charger you get. But sometimes it is not a rule and also it is useful to know that different brands give Best price for different packs.
Best Amount of Whip Chargers
Probably before answering the questions you have to decide how often you will use whip cream dispenser, other words, you have to count how many chargers you need per month.
If it is 1, then it is better not to try to save money per one charger and just buy the package of 20-24 pieces which would be Okay for you.
If you are planning to make whipped cream more often, then multiply your number by 12 and you would understand how many chargers you need for 1 year. Then you should find a package of your favourite brand with the closest amount of chargers in there, if it is a bit bigger than your number, it is OK.
As it was pointed before, shelf life of chargers is 5 years, I prefer to use whole pack in one year, but the final decision is up to you.
Best Price for Whip Charger
Right now for iSi Professional you will have best offer buying the amount of 250 chargers, for iSi classic it is 360 chargers and for Ultra-Purewhip it is 600 chargers. This amounts are closer to wholesalers, I mean cafés and restaurants.
For usual cook lovers a package of 100 chargers is more than enough and here we have next numbers.
The cheapest one is iSi Classic with 96 chargers, then comes with the same package Ultra-Purewhip and at the end comes iSi Professional with 100 chargers.
But do you remember about better efficiency of iSi Professional? Package of 84pcs will be cheaper, but work as 100pcs package of usual chargers.
As a result iSi Professional package of 84 pcs will be the Best Offer.
