Airpots are an ideal piece of coffee equipment to have when your customers are filling up their own cups of coffee. The push button action means consistent filling each time and with no need to tip or pour out of an open container, the risk of customers spilling coffee and burning themselves is relatively low and these units are insulated to keep coffee hotter than a decanter. These units are also ideal for office break rooms as well. When it comes to this essential addition to your coffee supplies, there are airpots with one of two types of dispensing systems. Though both use the same vacuum process of actually dispensing the liquid, one has a lever system and the other type uses a push button method. The push button method has the use push a large center button on the top of the pot to get their coffee.
The airpot continues dispensing until the button is depressed all the way. If the user wants more, they simply have to allow the button to rise back up and press the button again. The lever system uses a small handle on top of the pot instead of a button. Much like the button, the handle is pressed downward until the thirsty customer has a full cup. If the cup does not fill all the way the first time, the use must wait for the handle to move back to its top position on its own. Simply lifting the handle will not create the vacuum affect that needs to happen in order for there to be pressure on the interior to dispense the drink. Airpots are a great addition to the coffee supplies of any busy coffee shop because they allow you to store and dispense freshly brewed coffee so that your coffee machines can brew another pot simultaneously.
