I know they run off co2 but i want to know where i can buy one of these. They look like soda siphons but im not sure if thats what it is.

You put the liquid in then shake it and pull the trigger out comes the foam.

Anyone know what they are called and prices?

Thanks a bunch.

foamers satan's play things

Yep just look in the trunk of my car, seriously I have a full parts kit for Whip cream dispensers in the back of my car, I look after 4 restaurants and my moro...staff are forever breaking them or losing parts, then three weeks later the manager will come and whine to me
  • Manager: "we need a new whip cream maker"
  • Me: "why?,
  • Manager: "we only have one and it's always running out"
  • Me: "according to your last small wares inventory (by the way you are 6 weeks behind on your current one) you have two"
  • Manager: "Yes but one of them is broken, cream keeps leaking out the top"
  • Me: "ah!! you're missing the rubber seal from the inside of the top, hold on let me go out to my car I'll get you a seal"
  • Manager: "the nozzle has broken off"
  • Me: "in other words you are not putting the whip cream maker back into its proper place and its hitting the upper shelf in the ball cooler and breaking the valve even though I have adjusted the shelf and labelled the door as to where the whip cream maker should go"
  • Manager: "we need a new whip cream maker" (whinier voice)
  • Me: "No let me get you a new valve from the trunk of my car, give me the broken one"
  • Manager: "I don't know where it is"
  • Me: "well let's find it"
  • Manager: "we threw it out"
  • Me: "so technically you do know where it is, you threw out a $100.00 whip cream maker because it needed a $10.00 piece?"
  • Manager:"We need a new whip cream maker" (really whiny voice)
So my advice to you is DON'T DO IT THEY'RE EVIL I TELL YOU ....EVIL, seriously foams are out of vogue these days and unless you are going through a schwack of whip cream maybe you're better off with a whisk and bowl.
Wow that was very theraputic, but I think I should lay down for a little while:beer:

What a hoot your post is M.D.! To answer Quinn's question, you can get a seltzer bottle at any restaurant supply. When I bought mine 25 years ago, it cost about $20, so now they probably are $100. I don't know if this is what they use to make foams as I don't know how to do that. I found out by accident while working in a hospital kitchen and pureeing someone's baked fish that you can make a pretty impressive foam with xanthum gum and a Robotcoupe. Here I was thinking there was some touchy, complicated technique involved. You should've seen my cod fish foam. Don't know what the patient thought about it, but I thought "Oooh, how advante guarde of me, serving foams in a hospital." :lol::D

The company is "isi" there are two variations, CO2 and NO2. Carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide, the NO2 being used for creams and the CO2 for sodas. For the kind of foams you want use the NO2 "isi profiwhip" It's about $60.

An immersion blender is all you need though.

In the UK I bought one cafe latte foamer, cost £10....perfect for foaming, its like a blender with a wisk but runs with batteries and is good for pass because its petite.

foaming is old news;;;;;;;;
