Thermo combines the advantages of the kettle and thermos at the same time. It consists of a bulb retaining heat, the heating element and the device for regulating temperature. Basically Airpots have a larger volume than the electric kettles. Accommodates standard device is 4-5 liters.
The purpose of these devices is to keep hot a large amount of water for a long time. It is very convenient for a large family to provide warm beverages a few people throughout the day. Thermo can take with them on the nature or cottage to be able to drink hot tea at any time.
First boil the water can be quite long - about half an hour. Then, as the cooling, the device will heat the liquid, while maintaining its temperature at a predetermined level. Temperature conditions can be set by yourself.
In order to pour water into a cup, it is necessary to substitute it under the tap and press the button. For water supply in the instrument is provided pump-action mechanism. It can be controlled manually or electrically.
Airpots can be equipped with various additional functions and have multi protection. These devices have advantages over conventional electric kettles:

The disadvantages of these devices include their large size and long time the first boiling.
Criterias of choice
To learn how to choose Thermo consider its characteristics. When choosing the best model for the house are important parameters such as:
- heating elements;
- material housing and the bulb;
- additional functions.
Experts advise to buy Airpots with an average power 750-1000 W, since this level is enough to boil. For example, a five-liter unit with an average power boil water for 15-20 minutes. On the fluid is required to maintain 30-40 watts hot, which is quite small. Therefore, it makes no sense to choose a more powerful machine.
The heating elements can be spiral or circular. The latter are considered more reliable in operation. Disc break less often, so they are preferred. Airpots provided with thermostats that control the temperature. If there is a step type of thermostat you will be able to set the setpoint temperature. Stepless will gradually lowering the water temperature during the day.
The cabinet can be plastic, ceramic, and are also made of metal. Type of material affects the weight of the device. Thermo plastic housing will weigh less.
The bulb may be made of metal or glass. Glass is easily broken if dropped or hit the machine. Metal may scratch when washing, but they are much stronger.
Thermo most basic models have a mode of operation. They lack the ability to set the desired temperature value. More expensive functional units may have up to 6 programs. You can select a desired temperature, such as 60 or 85 degrees.
A very important factor when choosing a Thermo Home is safety. Good manufacturers equip their devices with features:
- locking the cover protecting from water strait when falling;
- Protection against accidental operation;
- Lock lid opening during operation Thermo;
- blocking inclusion in the absence of water in the tank.
When buying termochaynikov note the additional features. It is a useful self-cleaning device, which makes it possible to produce an automatic cleaning of the flask. Also take care of the presence of the cleaning filters, as the quality of tap water we have is low.
If in the morning you have no time to wait long for the water to boil, make sure that the machine had a delayed start function. Then you can program the operation of the appliance to the time you want. Airpots with the presence of several programs, usually provided with Beep of heating water to a predetermined level.
