I'm not sure the exact mechanism, but AFAIK the "big button" just drives

they're very nice for that -- store lots of liquid, keep it hot forever,
easy to dispense.

[Lots of more fancy types too that will heat the water as well (though
it's only necessary occasionally, as they vacuum container keeps it hot
for a long time), have electrically driven pumps, etc.]

Hey, Thanks for the info, Miles - -

I have just one problem - - there must be two things, then, that you have to
do - - pump the "big button" and then open a spigot to dispense only the
amount of hot water you want. Is that how it works?
