  • Chefs voice often fades at the end of sentences. After 5 tries, I still couldn’t get what he said he used as a foaming agent with the air maker. Foam magic, sucrose esters, and something else. I have the air maker and foam magic, but have not been successful at producing any foam just using vegetables and water. How can I find out specifically step by step how the lacy foam works so that I can figure out what I’m doing wrong?

      Hi, what are the ratios you are using to make a foam currently? Our favorite ratio is between 1-2% foam magic to the total weight of the liquid. (500g liquid to 5g-10g of foam magic) then whisk until dissolved and place the magic air maker in, and it will foam. Let us know if that helps!
