Cleaning and Descaling the Swid

The Swid is a quality product and is designed for continuous operation under normal conditions. Periodic maintenance of the Swid is required. Adhering to the following steps will greatly extend the Swid lifespan:
• Detach the Swid after each use and clean it thoroughly.
• Change the water in the bath after each use.
• Only use mild soap and water or a mild general-purpose spray cleaner to clean the case of the Swid. Be careful to prevent cleaning liquids from getting inside the controller.
• The heater should be kept clean to ensure maximum heating efficiency. Deposits may be removed by scouring with a non-metallic scour pad. Do not use copper or steel wool to prevent scratches on the heater.
• Mineral sediments may build up on the Swid after some days of usage. A deep cleaning procedure is required at least each week of use. For this purpose we recommend using any anti-liming product. Set the Swid at 55°C (131°F) for 35 minutes. Rince the Swid with fresh water.

If you want the Swid Timer to act as a countdown: indicate 1:30, for example, for a countdown of 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Note about the countdown: when the Timer Display reaches “00:00” the Swid beeps, the Timer Display flashes continuously and indicates since when the countdown has reached “00:00”.

Confirm the cooking time pressing the “Mode” button.
The Swid starts heating, the propeller blends the water bath.
When the set temperature is reached the Swid beeps and both displays flash. To launch either the countdown or the stopwatch, press the “Mode” button.

Now you can drop  the sous vide pouch in the water bath.

At any time, if you press 2 seconds the “Mode” button,

you can change the set temperature or cooking time. It is better to do so instead of  switching of the Swid (reset), otherwise you will lose all the precious “data” calculated by the Swid.
