Tassimo descaler tablets are suitable for use in all Tassimo Coffee Machines. Each package contains 4 tablets; this allows you 2 cleans of your coffee machine.
The tablets will remove the limescale and calcium deposits that have accumulated in your machine.
How to use the Tassimo Descaler Tablets
When your coffee requires descaling, it will display a red light saying, “please descale me”. As it is impossible to guess when the machine needs cleaning, it is best to have a spare pack of the decaling tablets handy. When your descaling process completed, the light will go out.
The box contains two sachets, each containing two tablets. You just use two tablets with 500ml of water. There are four tassimo descaler tablets, used for two separate descaling operations. If you are in an area of soft water, you can get away with just using half a tablet. This will make the tablets last longer.
Descaling your Tassimo Coffee Machine
The Tassimo is equipped with an automatic descaling programme. First, fill the tank with 500ml of water. Then place in the two descaling tablets. Once they have stopped fizzing. Replace the water tank in the machine. Insert the yellow maintenance-cleaning disc where the coffee pouch normally goes. The disc found in a compartment at the side or the back of your machine. Insert a bowl or jug under the spout, which can catch the 500ml of water you have placed in the tank. Press the barcode drinks button and hold the start button for five seconds, until the red and green light come on, which indicates the cycle has started. The machine will then read the barcode so that it knows that it is on the cleaning setting. The Tassimo will then start to descale automatically.
The whole process takes about 30 minutes to complete. Once the descaling process has completed the red descaling light will switch off. Afterwards just flush some fresh water through the machine to flush out any remaining descaling water.
The instructions to clean the machine are in the manual, which comes with the coffee machine. The tablet box does not come with any instructions. You will need to go to the Tassimo site or you tube to view a video. There are a few instructional videos on you tube if you need any help with the descaling.
The process is quite slow, so make sure you make your cup of coffee first before you start.
The tablets are quite expensive for what they are. You can probably get a similar unbranded product for a cheaper price. However, I feel safer using the recommended product.
The tablets cleaned the machine well and the coffee subsequently tasted much better. The tablets will also extend the life of your coffee machines. The descaling keeps the machine in tiptop condition after using. Descaling will help your coffee machine to last longer and your coffee to taste better.
The machines seem to need descaling at least every six months. Depending on whether you live in a hard or soft water area. The machine is supposed to last an average of 400 cups of coffee, before requiring descaling.
