How often should I descale my SENSEO?

You should preferably descale the SENSEO machine 4 to 6 times a year, but at least once every 3 months.

Reasons to descale:

  • It prolongs the life of your SENSEO coffee machine
  • It ensures maximum cup volume
  • It ensures maximum coffee temperature
  • The machine produces less sound during brewing
  • It prevents malfunctioning

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.
