- A Beverage Dispenser
We drink a lot of coffee, so we make a big pot every morning. Whether tea, hot chocolate, or coffee is your drink of choice, an air pot is handy. We actually make our coffee right in the air pot using an old plastic cone filter, then serve from it all morning. It keeps the coffee hot, and the pot, secured to the wall with a bungee cord, is close at hand.
On overnight passages, we fill it with hot water for instant cereal, noodles, soups, hot chocolate, and tea. If you have space for two pots or simply prefer cold beverages, the air pot can serve that purpose, too. When we have guests, we often make a big pot of lemonade and throw in an ice cube or two—it stays cool all day. And by using an air pot to keep drinks chilled, you won't open the refrigerator as often.
