The Original Purewhip is Back!

That’s right, the original Purewhip is back in stock, we we’re without it for a short time, but we have gotten the original back and it is available to purchase now!

Purewhip nitrous oxide chargers are our original European made whip cream charger. Purewhip nitrous oxide chargers are manufactured by Europe’s largest and most reputable N20 and C02 production facility located in Hungary.  This is the original brand that changed the industry with its unmatched quality and rock-bottom price!

 

What’s the difference between Ultra-Purewhip and Purewhip?

The only difference between the two is that one is manufactured in Hungary(Purewhip) and one in Austria(ultra purewhip). It is the same quality European gas you have come to expect and trust when you buy any of our products!

Brand Recognition

There’s been a lot of questions recently about brands, where they come from? What’s the difference? What should I buy?

It can become very convoluted in the world of whats good and whats bad in nitrous oxide.  Hopefully this will be a tool of basic brand comparison, and why it matters.

If you haven’t realized yet, nitrous oxide can make or break your whipped cream.  When it comes to taste and texture, the brand you choose matters. There are two major markets of where N20 cartridges come from –  Europe and China(Taiwan).  China has emerged as the largest, among with the Hungarian Company (Liss) and ISI in Austria.

Most nitrous oxide brands you find on the market come from China, why? Because it’s cheap. But as the old saying goes “you get what you pay for” and the saying is more then true when it comes to nitrous oxide. It is highly recommended that you stay with chargers made in Europe as cleanliness standards are proven much better than other countries. There is no agency testing the quality and cleanliness of these chargers.  You need only look at the recent rash of recalls on many other products made in China. With the proliferation of cheap, self-regulated imports, it is important to ask questions! Call your supplier and ask where the brands are coming from! Mostly beware of companies who “hide” where the product is being produced and are not upfront about where it is coming from. If you notice, many brands will not mention where the product is produced but rather state “best and the cleanest N2O chargers on the market” It’s important to ask questions.  Not only are you being ripped off when you purchase cheap nitrous oxide but, so is your whipped cream, as you will notice the difference.

Gas coming out of Europe is widely known as the premiere gas on the market, with the highest ratings. Most importantly most highly sought after in the culinary community. Why? Because its the Purest available, leaving no after taste or residue, nitrous oxide coming out of Europe is always trusted, and is the cleanest available on the market. Coming from the main factory in Vienna, brands like ISI and Ultra Purewhip , you can always guarantee never duds and absolutely no aftertaste. The EU has the strictest standards, among producing countries with there enforceable legal requirement that assure purity for ingestion. You will notice the difference.

Many times people look over the nitrous oxide they buy, but not only is it important for your health but also for your end product.
