How do I descale my food steamer?

After you have used your steamer several times (depending on the water hardness in your housing area), the heater in the base is covered by a layer. The appliance should now be decalcified. Fill the base with white household vinegar (5 %) so that the heating element is just covered. Put the steam accelerator in place.
Close the appliance, connect it to the mains and set the time to 15 minutes. Should there still be a layer visible after the 15 minutes are over, repeat the procedure. After the vinegar and the appliance have sufficiently cooled off empty the base. Rinse the base 3 to 4 times with warm water.
Any remaining calcium can be removed from the steam accelerator with a brush.
