Product Review: iSi Easy Whip-Whipped Cream Maker

As I've told you all before I love to bake.  That means a constant stream of desserts, (some experimental) flow out of my kitchen.  Many of them would not be complete without a dollop of whipped cream.  Call me a snob but whipped topping simply will not do.  There is nothing that compares to the flavor of freshly whipped cream.  The only downside?  You whip it, you use part of it, and then there is the leftover whipped cream.  You refrigerate it only to find it deflated and runny in a couple of days.  The canned style whip cream isn't horrible, but it cannot compete with the real thing.  I found the perfect solution to the problem:  The iSi Easy Whip Whipped Cream Maker.  This dispenser will keep cream fresh for up to 10 days in the refrigerator without preservatives. 
The iSi Easy Whip is simple to use. 
Here's everything you need for fresh whipped cream.
Add 1 pint of well-cooled cream to the canister. 
If you choose to add flavorings or additives,
they must be in liquid or powder form and
should be dissolved or stirred into some
cream in advance. Otherwise, clumping may occur
and block the removal system.
Screw the Easy Whip top onto the canister.
Place the cream charger into the charger holder. 
One charger for a filling of approx. 0.5 L. 
You use one charger per pint of whipped cream. 
The results in your 10 day supply of freshly whipped cream.
Screw on the original iSi cream charger
using the charger holder. Shake the device vigorously. 
Unfasten the charger holder and dispose
of the empty charger.  You should hear a hissing sound
and the canister should begin to feel cold to the touch.
Attach the decorator tip to the head
For best results, hold the canister
VERTICALLY (unlike I am doing here)
and dispense whipped cream.

I absolutely adore my cream whipper.  I have given several away as gifts to friends who love to bake as much as I do.  If you enjoy baking OR if you simply enjoy eating your desserts with quality whipped cream then this product is for you.

One thing I have learned when operating this product is when you go to disassemble the cream whipper, be sure to dispense any remaining whipped cream before you unscrew the lid.  I usually cover the lid with a kitchen towel before I slowly unscrew it.  This allows the pressure to release slowly and prevents any remaining whipped cream from flying all over your kitchen.

The iSi Easy Whip is priced between $40.99 and $55.99.  The N20 cream chargers are sold separately and usually run around $.99 each.  The investment is well worth it.
