Well, here is the good news: you actually can! Don’t look so surprised. Making a whipped cream is not exactly mind-boggling activity. In fact, you will only need one kitchen gadget: cream dispenser.
Aside from allowing you to make your all-time favourite whipped cream, it also helps you in making whipped cream of different flavours—even, your very own flavour. With this, you can actually experiment different kinds of flavours by mixing whatever ingredient you want to try and taste for yourself if it will go well with your dessert.

It also helps save a lot of time and energy because you do not have to manually mix every ingredient. And let’s not forget that it is also less messy.
Here are five simple steps on how to use your cream dispenser:
Step1. Before using it, you must first clean the dispenser. The various parts of your dispenser include bottle, piping tip, gas cartridge, and screw of headpiece. These parts should be thoroughly cleaned. You can do this by rinsing it under running water then use a towel to dry it off.
Step2. Put in a new gas cartridge. Remove the detachable portion (cartridge node) found at the top of the dispenser. After that, insert the new gas cartridge on the part that you have removed. After that, put the cartridge holder on the gas cartridge. It is easy to identify which the holder is since it is the largest part that is found in the opposite of the handle. And once you put it in the cartridge, it will fit perfectly. Every time you will make a cream, this cartridge should be replaced because the gas that it contains is only enough to make a litre of whipped cream. These cartridges are easily available on bakeries.
Step3. Pour the whipping cream in the bottle. The usual amount of the whipping cream is around one pint. After that, add in two tbsp confectioner’s sugar. Then it is time to add your chosen flavouring. Some of the usual flavourings added are almond and vanilla extract.
Step4. Close the lid. It is essential that the lid is tightly sealed. Also, you have to attach the following: piping tip to handle and gas cartridge to the screw hole.
Step5. Shake well. In order to let the cream and sugar to blend well, you must briskly shake it for a minute or two.
And now, you’re done. To release the whipped cream, Put the dispenser in a vertical position and then gently squeeze the handle.
