You should preferably descale the SENSEO® machine 4 to 6 times a year, but at least once every 3 months.
Reasons to descale:
Use the correct descaling agent:
Only citric acid-based descalers are suitable for descaling the SENSEO® machine. This type of descaler descales the machine without damaging it.
Philips has developed a special descaler for SENSEO® machines: HD7012 and HD7011.
The special descaler can be bought on the Online shop or your retailer
Note: Never use a descaling agent based on mineral acids such as sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, sulfamic acid and acetic acid (e.g. vinegar). These descaling agents may damage your SENSEO® coffee machine.
