It IS handy! Especially since I don't have a hand mixer! I have a 500 lb Kitchenaid mixer. I hate clutter, so it goes under the cabinet after use - so it doesn't come out for just whipped cream. LOL (OK, so it's not 500 lbs - but if you've ever lifted one, you know what I mean!)
I did a web search and ordered mine from the place that had the best price (remember to include shipping before you make the final decision). iSi whip cream (or whipped) is a good search string. They have different styles of canisters. This one was less expensive and it has fewer parts.
I ordered my refill N2O chargers off eBay (search string - iSi charger). Looks like they have some iSi whip cream makers there too (search string - iSi whip cream). Make sure you don't get the soda one by mistake!
The have something listed as a charger cracker - no clue what it is, but everything you need should already come with the original device. You don't need to buy this 'cracker' whatever it is.
Also, I do not recommend the half pint - 1 pint is a good size. I've never had the whipped cream go bad in it.
