This is our 3rd of the same type in 10 years. It is extra sturdy and well made. Our home made whipped cream is always a hit! it is so simple to make. Add a little Baileys, Tia Maria, Frangelica, Hazelnut Liquor, or other flavoring of your choice and you just rocked their world, because they will tell you "I have never had anything like this, it's delicious! Was it hard to make"? At this point I become less than truthful and explain it is an old family recipe, and took hours to make. Then I make the next batch right in front of them which takes 1-2 minutes. Which is why we have 3 whipped cream dispensors. They will empty the 1st and want more. So I change flavors, perhaps Kahlua? It is fun letting them choose the next flavor.
