mjackson ♦ Any of our descalers will work. This particular one also has a lubricant in it so it was actually meant for a super auto. I would look at the Urnex products like dezcal. You can also get the bigger bottle of Durgol that works. There is also a liquid descaler from Urnex I like a lot - http://www.wholelattelove.com/Urnex/urnex-full-circle-descaling-liqued.cfm

Hello! It sounds like this works for all machines, but will it also work for a Gaggia Baby? The instruction booklet says to only use Gaggia descaler, but is that just their marketing or does it have merit?

I've got an ECM Giotto around 8 years old. I use Cafiza regularly but have never attempted to descale. It seems to run fine. Local water is not hard and I use Brita filtered water in the machine. Your chart does not show any descaler appropriate for the ECM (now Rocket Brand).
Shoul I descale and with what product? Liz

techkathy Durgol is safe to use on almost all espresso machines. I would recommend getting a couple of packs to descale the Giotto because it has suck a large capacity boiler.

We have a new Saeco Royal Coffee Bar superautomatic machine. What brand/type of descaler do you recommend for this?

mjackson ♦ Robert,
The Durgol Swiss is probably the easiest and most effective for your machine. It has a formula designed for super autos with a lubricant. They all will work any of the descalers as they are all similar in function the liquid ones are probably the easiest to use.

Can I use this product in my Gaggia UNICA? I rather use this instead of the powder. And do I need as well the Urnex Super Auto Cleaning Tabs to clean the brew group as well?

I have a exobar Brutus (first generation), should I be using a descaler? I have often wondered this as I clean the mmachine on a regular basis--I live in the Pacific Northwest (Northwet!) an have extremely soft water/\.
Thanks for being there and for your time!!

mjackson ♦ Howard,

It is a hard machine to descale. You are better off using soft water. It is something you could do but you would do a better job by taking it all apart. Having soft water is the best thing to use. Some people have descaled it and here is a link with a good idea on how to do it. http://www.home-barista.com/tips/descaling-expobar-brewtus-3r-t12047.html

I hope this helps and let us know if you have any questions.

mjackson ♦ Frank,

I hope you like your machine and this is a good product to help keep it working well. Be sure to follow the directions and I would descale about every 10-12 weeks. I like this product beacuse it is a liquid and easy to use. Let us know if you have any more questions.

JoaRkim Frank, I have the same machine and am glad I found your post so I don't have to re-ask the same ?. I will be ordering this product ASAP. I don't want to mess up my machine by ignoring the cleaning chore. Also have to look into the water filter.

When I purchased my machine you included a box of Cleancaf cleaner and descaler. I need some more of that but can't find it on the website. Do you still have it?
