The whipping siphon is one of my favorite pieces of modernist equipment. It can create a wide variety of foams as well as infuse liquids and foods and carbonate anything with water in it. It works by pressurizing a canister filled with liquid or food with nitrous oxide (N2O) or carbon dioxide (CO2) and then either dispensing it out a nozzle or venting the gas and using the liquid by itself.
There are many options for what type of whipping siphon you will buy and below I list my Top Picks. If you are just getting started with a whipping siphon I recommend checking out my how to use a whipping siphon page for more information.
These whipping siphons are what we recommend to our friends and family. While one might be a better fit for you personally, you can't go wrong with any of them. These are mainly with a focus on home cooks (see below for professional machines).
