Stainless steel, 2.2 liter thermally insulated airpot will keep about 14 cups of beverages either hot or cold for 6-8 hours. These airpots are made for use with models BA-P, AT-AP, B-SAP, B-DAP, GNB-10H, and GNB-20H. Airpots should be preheated prior to use by filling with hot water (either using the hot-water spigot on the machine, or by doing a first "empty" brew cycle) and then emptying the water.
These airpots have push-tops. Beverages are dispensed by pushing down on the large push plate in the center of the top. They have a cup clearance of 11.5", so even tall cups can be used with them.
Not only is the use of thermal airpots more energy efficient than keeping coffee warm on a hotplate, but the coffee in a thermal airpot will not continue to "cook" (as on a hot plate), so it will retain its original full-bodied flavor without becoming bitter, and without boiling dry.
Airpots can be ordered with either Black or Red push-tops to connote "regular" and "decaf" coffee. Sold in cases of 6 airpots. Specify "Black" (item # 70273-C) or "Orange" (item # 70274-C) when ordering.
