The 101 ounce airpots are great for commercial purposes such as serving coffee to customers in a restaurant or banquet. The 74 ounce double walled airpot is great for convention and banquet tables. These pots swivel 360° and one push fills the cup to the top.
Decanters are sometimes better known as glass coffee pots or carafes. They can hold from four up to twelve cups and may come with color coded tops of black and orange. Small home sized decanters usually come in white or black to match the owners décor.
