Carbonisation occurs when carbon and grease is burnt onto kitchen equipment, building up and resulting in inefficient and uneven distribution of heat, as well as an unclean appearance. Decarbonisers easily remove this carbon build-up from expensive items at an affordable cost, heating a specially-formulated biodegradable detergent to 80 degrees Celsius which then dissolves carbon build up, resulting in clean equipment scrub-free!
Decarbonisers are extremely versatile and can clean pretty much any item in your kitchen affected by grease and carbon, including stainless steel gastronorms, stove tops, oven internals, extraction filters, aluminium trays, grill plates, brander plates, char-grills, fryer baskets and removable attachments, stainless steel and aluminium pots and pans, glass and ceramic items.
Decarbonisers are very straightforward and safe for users. Detergent used is an environmentally-friendly, non-caustic, non-corrosive and non-hazardous biodegradable solution that has been specially-formulated for use in decarbonisers. We provide all the necessary PPE with your decarboniser hire, along with the relevant COSHH safety data sheets. All of our decarbonisers are PAT tested every 6 months. On delivery, we will set up and install your decarboniser and then demonstrate how to use it safely.
It is not recommended to put silver, silver plate, tin plate, enamel coated pots, Teflon, silicone coated pans, wood or thin plastic items into the decarboniser.
This depends on how dirty the items are, but generally between 20 minutes and 24 hours. Items should not be left in the tank longer than 24 hours; they must be removed, thoroughly washed, rinsed and put back in the decarboniser if required.
Once you have decided on your chosen delivery date we will set up the decarboniser in your preferred area within your business (access allowing), fill the tank with water, add the biodegradable non-caustic chemical and ensure it is dissolved and mixed thoroughly. We ensure the decarboniser is working and switched on and demonstrate how to use it. Once you’re finished with it, we will drain the tank and take it away, leaving you with a kitchen you’ll be proud to show your customers.
In most cases a week should suffice, but if you need longer just give us a call and we can arrange additional weeks’ hire at the prices quoted. We recommend hiring every 3 - 6 months or as often as suits your needs.
The temperature of the water in the decarboniser kills bacteria, leaving items soaked in the system bacteria free when they are removed.
Payments are to be made either through BACS or PayPal prior to delivery.
Decarboniser hire will restore your kitchen equipment to 'like new', removing stubborn, burnt-on carbon and grease which presents a great image to customers and EHO inspectors alike.Contact Us

" This didn't disappoint! I hired the medium-sized decarboniser which was more than adequate for my kitchen. Decarb It even delivered and set it up without us even being there. "

" I was initially contacted by Sam from Decarb It to see if I would like to hire a decarboniser for a week. With space at a premium, being able to hire a small decarboniser for a week at a time is ideal for our operation. "

" Being a really busy tearoom in the city centre, our ovens and equipment are used all day non-stop. Our decarboniser was delivered with no hassle and was fully set up by Decarb It ready for us to use. "
