Dispenser Spawn Command

The Dispenser item can be spawned in Minecraft with the below command. Cheats must be enabled before this will work.

If you are running the Essentials plugin, you will need to run /minecraft:give instead of simply /give. This is because the Essentials /give command overrides Minecraft's built-in command.
