When and how should I descale my Philips steamer?

When the time has come to descale your Philips steamer, a light will start to flash. When this happens, please follow the descaling instructions below:

Step 1:

Fill the water tank with white vinegar (8% acetic acid) up to the maximum level. Do not use any other kind of descaler.

Step 2:

Put the drip tray, the steaming bowls and the soup/rice bowl on the base properly.

Step 3:

Put the lid on top of the soup/rice bowl.

Step 4:

Put the plug in the wall socket.

Step 5:

Press the menu button for carrots and the + button to let the appliance operate for 25 minutes.

Note: If the vinegar starts to boil over the edge of the base, unplug the steamer and reduce the amount of vinegar.

Step 6:

When the steamer switches to the keep warm function after 25 minutes, unplug it and let the vinegar cool down completely. Empty the water tank afterwards.

Step 7:

Rinse the water tank with cold water several times.

Note: Repeat the procedure if there is still some scale in the water tank.
