Regular descaling prolongs the life of the appliance and guarantees optimal brewing results for a long time.
In case of normal use (two brewing cycles a day), descale the appliance:
• Every two months if you use soft water (up to 13dH) or filtered water;
• Every month if you use hard water (over 13dH).
