Whip-It Good Giveaway! (Updated)

Note: We have a winner! Congratulations to Maureen Hsia.

A few months ago, I messaged Steve “Fried Gnocchi” Ziegler to ask him for holiday giveaway ideas. Steve works with The WEBstaurant Store, the largest restaurant supply company on the web, so he’s always got the pulse of kitchen awesomeness.

What did he suggest? A restaurant-quality whipped cream dispenser.

I thought it sounded mega-fun, but who (besides a professional stripper or the cook who squirts a smiley face on your kids’ pancakes) is going to use a cream whipper year-round?

Turns out, a few nitrous oxide chargers can make all kinds of magic happen.

You can use this Whip-It Professional 1/2-Liter Cream Whipper not only for amazingly fast and fluffy whipped cream but also for chocolate mousse, sauces (hello, Hollandaise), foams (like the ones you see on “Top Chef”), fillings, alcohol-infused whipped creams …

The French Culinary Institute even blogged about using a cream whipper to infuse flavors into alcohol.

Oh, yes.

But besides all that, this thing really is pure fun. The WEBstaurant Store sent me one to play around with, and you won’t believe how fast it works. You just fill the bottle halfway with heavy cream and a sweetener, and screw in the nitrous charger. When you hear a hissing sound, the dispenser is charged! Remove the charger, shake the dispenser, and you’re ready to go.

You’ll never have to leave the dinner table early because you forgot to make whipped cream again.

WEBstaurant restaurant supplies are always top-notch, so you should know that the Whip-It is considered the best whipped cream dispenser on the market. It’s 100% stainless steel, dishwasher-safe, and the whipped cream stored inside the dispenser stays good for several days.

This Whip-It Good Giveaway, sponsored by The WEBstaurant Store, includes: one Whip-It Specialist Plus 1/2-Liter Cream Whipper/Dispenser (valued at $55.99) with one stainless steel tip, two decorator tips, and a box of 10 nitrous oxide chargers.
