This machine does not actually "heat" cold product up, does it? There does not appear to be any cords attached to plug in to an outlet and heat? If it does not, do you have any products that will actually heat up product. Looking for a dispenser that will heat up 2 gallons of apple juice with spices to create hot cider and maintain temp for up to 2 hours.
This insulated beverage dispenser only maintains the liquid's temperature, and does not heat up a cold product. For hot apple cider, I recommend cooking it on the stovetop or in a crockpot, and then transfering the liquid to an insulated beverage dispenser (such as this model) or serve directly out of the crockpot with a ladle. There are such things like hot water boilers (item# 380576), but those are only for water.
