Attractive chrome electrically powered water boiler. Generally used for boiling water for tea or other hot beverages that do not require percolation like coffee. Measures 18″ tall by 9″ wide. Holds up to 55 cups of water.
IMPORTANT: This unit requires high power for proper boiling, operation and safety. The power required is a 120v with a three prong plug, more importantly it uses 1500 watts. Typically a circuit will only take 1500 watts before it trips. Therefore if you have a heating water boiler plugged in and ANY other appliance is plugged into the same circuit(fuse) it will either trip the breaker or the boiler will not heat to temperature.
Other issues that will cause the water to not function properly:
- use of power bar or extension cord
- use in building with old outdated wiring
- use with any other appliances plugged into the same circuit
- using warm or hot water wo fill the urn(it must be cold when filling
