I also use this all the time. This is all I use. I would like to add that the colder the whipping cream the less amount of shaking you do. You can also add a couple of marbles to this. To add in aggitaion. Make sure you shake slow to start, if you use the later, also the later should not be used if small children are going to be helping you.
