The 28 litre capacity, 35cm diameter tank is acid proof enamelled and fitted with a drainage tap. A separate grill insert is also included to maintain water circulation around containers. The 1800W heating element is concealed in the base so there is no contact between the element and the contents of the tank. The temperature can be accurately controlled between 30°C - 100°C on the thermostat dial.
