When a blessing is required the blessing is as follows:1

Baruch Atah Ado-nai Elo-heinu Melech Ha'olam Asher Kidishanu B'miztvosov V'tzivanu Al Tevilas Keili(m)2

Translation: Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the Universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us concerning the immersion of a vessel (vessels).

For the specific requirements of immersing a utensil see "Which food utensils need to be immersed in a Mikvah?"

Footnotes

  • 1. Not all utensils require a blessing when immersed. See link at end of article.
  • 2. For one utensil you say Keili, for more than one you say Keilim.

G-d
It is forbidden to erase or deface the name of G-d. It is therefore customary to insert a dash in middle of G-d's name, allowing us to erase or discard the paper it is written on if necessary.
