Tea urn?

I need to source a Baby Burco-type electric water boiler - the sort you would have as a tea urn! I've tried every combination of words but 'chaudiere' usually brings up house boilers rather than domestic water dispensers for a cup of tea. Any ideas? (or ideas where I could buy on line as well please?)
Many thanks all

What you want is a bouilleur...try here for example:

Sweets, thank you, but I'm doubtful we'll have to employ any crowd control measures Big Smile [:D]

I can't improve on Betty's translation, but I bought one on ebay.fr a few years ago. It was quite small, 2-3 litres, in a pretty floral container. It's still going strong now.
So try ebay.

Thank you Pat, but I followed Betty's link and have ordered the 20 litre one. It will be used once a week so sounds really suitable. Others that I had found were 200euros plus! So I am blowing Betty a little kiss (*'mwaHHH'!!!*) to thank her (although from some of the postings I wonder if Betty is, indeed, a man!).
