These small cylinders contain about two liters of gas. They are made up of stainless steel. These cylinders whip the cream and you need not to whip it by using your hands. You can add desired sugar or flavor into your dispenser before releasing the gas and as we pressurize the gas into dispenser the gas prevents the cream to get oxidized and the gas being soluble in fats will get dissolved in the cream turning the cream to be fluffy and this process takes few minutes to be done. Nitrous oxide is a preservative in itself so it can also be stored for weeks; if you run any restaurant or coffee shop then you do not need to whip the cream every me you want just whip the cream and store it in cool place i.e. Refrigerator provided when you are taking it out after one or two weeks shake it properly before using and you are ready to make interesting creation in your kitchen.
