If you're the proud owner of a sous vide thermal circulator or water bath, then descaling is critical for keeping your machine in working order. Some manufacturers now include warnings on the box, and in the instructions, that the guarantee which comes with the product will become invalid if descaling is not performed regularly. To keep your sous vide device in the best working order, we recommend that you descale your sous vide devices regularly – how regularly will depend on how hard your water is and how often you use your equipment.
To use simply place your thermal circulator in water or fill the water bath to the minimum level. Then simply add 3 table spoons of this sous vide descaler per 10 litres of water and heat it up to 80c and run for around 10 minutes. Pour out the decaling solution and rinse thoroughly with cold water once all the lime scale has been removed. Wipe any metal items dry.
