To clean your electric steam steriliser
Allow to cool and unplug before cleaning. After each use pour away any remaining water from the steriliser base by tipping it sideways over a sink. Wipe clean with a damp cloth only. Do not clean with abrasive cleaners or allow it to come into contact with solvents or harsh chemicals as this could cause damage.
To descale your electric steam steriliser
A build-up of limescale can negatively affect the performance of your steriliser. To keep it working effectively we recommend carrying out the descaling process using these frequency guidelines:
Hard water: 14 days
Medium: 21 days
Soft: 28 days
You can find out your water quality via your water provider. Living in a hard water area can produce limescale more quickly, so we recommend descaling more frequently.
1. After each use pour away any remaining water from the base by tipping it sideways over a sink and wipe with a damp cloth only.
2. Use a descaler that is suitable for use with stainless steel i.e. kettle, iron and coffee machine de-scalers. Use as per the manufacturer's guidelines.
3. Alternatively, you can use neat white vinegar leave until limescale is removed no longer than 24 hours.
DO NOT use metal objects or scourers to clean your steriliser.
DO NOT use bleach or sterilising fluid to clean. DO NOT use abrasive or anti-bacterial materials. DO NOT scrub the heat plate.
