Why should you clean and descale your TASSIMO machine?

Descaling your machine will keep it in top condition, so that it can continue to make your favourite, high quality beverages. All coffee machines are susceptible to limescale build-up, which can damage them. The descaling cycle will remove any limescale, residue and calcium deposits. Descaling your machine is essential to increase the life of your machine and to get the best quality drinks from the machine. The machine will let you know when it needs a descale by illuminating the red descale indicator light.

When should you descale
your tassimo?

As soon as the red light is on, descaling is required. You need to descale your TASSIMO machine approximately 4 times per year. It takes about 30 minutes to fully clean an descale your machine.

How to use descaling tablets?

TASSIMO recommends to only use the official TASSIMO by Bosch descaling tablets. Never use vinegar or acetic acid-based descalers, these can harm your machine and the taste of your drinks. To descale, take two of the tablets and dissolve in water in the water tank. Please follow the steps above.
