Product information

Brand: Swan
  • These robust electric catering urns are the perfect hot water appliance for cafes, meeting clubs and restaurants
  • With a large 16 litre capacity, the urn keeps water hot to serve coffee and tea on demand. The simmerstat function maintains the chosen temperature. Once the temperature drops, the urn quickly boils back to a hot temperature.
  • These Swan catering urns also have a special type of lid that reduces noise whilst the urn is boiling and holds the heat in the urn. This feature makes the Swan model more economical than lesser types of urn as it has to reboil less times than competitor models.
  • The element is concealed within the unit to protect the lifetime of the urn and makes it easy to clean and maintain.
  • Operates at 2200 watts when boiling and 150 watts when maintaining temperature.
  • Distance from base to tap: approx 5 inches
