Electric water boiler

An electric water boiler, also sometimes called an electric dispensing pot, electric water heater, or electric water urn, is a consumer electronics small appliance used for boiling water and possibly maintaining it at a constant temperature. It is typically used to provide an immediate source of hot water for making tea, hot chocolate, ramen noodles, or baby formula, or any other household use where clean hot water is required.

An electric water boiler consists of a water reservoir with a heating element in the bottom. Some models offer multiple temperature settings. Other models are part of larger water systems that boil water and provide hot, cold, and lukewarm water. Water may be dispensed in various ways, e.g. by pouring, an electric pump or by pressing a large button that functions as a diaphragm pump.
