• If you live in a hard water area, we

water you should descale every 6 months.

than usual, it is a sign that descaling is

descaler which is especially made for
coffee makers and plastic kettles. Follow
the instructions on the bottle or sachet,
and then operate the coffee maker with
just water 3 times before making coffee.
• Do not use kettle descaler unless the
packet specifically states it it suitable for
coffee makers.
