Guess who got MCaH for Chanukah?

Looking for whipping siphons and nitrous oxide cartridges in Toronto, pref downtown or Danforth.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Ohhhh I love mine. It was a gift but I believe it was bought at Nella for about $80.

    1. No where near the east end but maybe check out http://www.goldaskitchen.com
      I got the book in Oct. and have been buying myself toys ever since, really starting to add up. Whipper is about #2 in terms of my wants right now.

        1. Try Kitchen Stuff Plus!. Look for "Catering Pure Whipped Cream Maker Refill Canisters"

          1. Is there a difference between NO2 and CO2 cartridges?

              Physically there is no difference, you can use the CO2 cartridges in the whipper bottle (I do it to produce carbonated fruits in the bottle)

              Chemically is a different story, CO2 is much more chemically active than NO2 and will not work the same way as a whipping agent. I've never tried using CO2 to whip cream but I suspect the result would be quite unpleasant
