Portable Hot Water Urn

Recommended Posts

Just Purchased a portable hot water urn for the kitchen and realised it would be great for the caravan instead of boiling the kettle every 5 mins as her ladyship drinks tea by the gallon.

 

Its a 650w 5 litre unit which takes about 40 mins from cold to 98 degrees but once upto temperature cuts power to a minimum to keep the temperature at a constant 98.

 

It dispences water by first pressing a button to activate it then holding down another button and cut off when released, it also has a pump action option if you were to take it on a trip to the beach as it will hold its temperature for a good while.

 

Could also be hooked upto a 1000w inverter in the car for picnics etc (sorry for the small picture)

I've had one for years by Super Kettle, 3. 2ltr. it provided all day tea/coffee

or washing up water in my Eriba and had quite a small footprint on the

counter. My version had a dispensing button that you triggered with the rim

of your mug and a hand pump so you could dispense water away from the mains

40 mins seems a long time to wait for a cuppa. Not sure I'm that patient :)

The idea is to bring it up to temp before you leave and plug back in when you arrive shouldn't take more than a few mins to bring to the boil.

 

Just top up throughout the day suits my wife and shes not patient at all

 

Me a cold beer or glass of wine :D

But then you are travelling with a boiler of hot water!

 

We have the system of a whistling gas kettle which gives a piping hot cup of tea within minutes of setting up.

Hi, I've just bought the Addis 5l Thermopot to use at my caravan, but have now been led to believe that I may have problems with the electricity supply if I use it.   Does yours cut out if you use 12 volt electricity?

The Thermo Pot uses mains 240v electricity - it's rated at 680w compared to a camping kettle at about 750w and a domestic kettle at 2500-3000w. Even a low ampage site should cope with 680w but it does of course depend what else you have switched on.

I bought an 8 litre boiler for valeting the van/car. Takes 15 mins to boil water then nice toasty warm water to wash car/van.   I like a nice cuppa but 8 litres a day is going some-joking! It would also serve for washing up I suppose.
