Robert Z: This product works great. I have used unscented powdered dishwasher detergent with similar results. I would suspect the active ingredients would be quite similar (i.e. a concentrated alkaline, low-foaming detergent). Jul 5, 2012

Lindsey asked: Hi I live in the UK and have a Fracino machine built in Birmingham. The product they sell for back flushing contains Sodium Hydroxide and I am a little concerned about using this. I have watched several videos of Seattle Coffee Gear on Youtube and they mention this product and wondered if you had any advice re the stuff I am using?

Thanks

Teri KStaff: I am sorry but I'm not able to speak about the product that you are using to back flush, however Joe Glo and other similar cleaning agents contain some combination of sodium tripolyphosphate and sodium per carbonate. Sorry I can't be of greater assistance on this for you! Feb 11, 2014

A shopper asked: Could I use this to clean a boiler that has had water sitting in it for 2 years and puts out stinky steam? Nov 10, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: This Joe Glo is a back flush agent, and so if you are looking for a product to run through the machine's steam/hot water arm, I'd recommend a descaler. Check out Dezcal, found at the link below:

http://www.seattlecoffeegear.com/dezcal-espresso-machine-descaler

Dezcal is your best bet, but I am not sure how much help it can provide if the water has been in there for 2 years. You may have success with a few applications of Dezcal. Good luck, and I hope it works for you!

Works as advertised and does well. My only suggestion is, after the first pull, mix the hot water and detergent left in the basket so that it more easily goes through the machine. Otherwise you might be left with undissolved, unused detergent in the basket.

Joe Glo made parts of my espresso machine and French press look like new. I wish I'd known about this product before. It really is a value and pleased me. I will be ordering more in the future.

I waited too long to get the right tools to keep my machine clean. Joe Glo, a brush and a blind basket. So cheap, and the results are spectacular. Joe Glo doesn't do a great job at descaling - could be how long I waited to descale my machine. But with regular use from day one, I bet it would help keep scale to a minimum. Get a brush that has a measuring spoon for Joe Glo on the end, and the blind 58mm basket fits on the lid of the Joe Glo (it doesn't get lost in my drawer!). Regular backflushing is easy and you can taste the results right away.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Commercial Grade, Great Taste

Cons:
Doesn't descale

I bought this product to back flush my Rancilio Silvia and it does a great job. I have been trying to find a product to clean my stainless steel coffee travel mug. I tried this product and within a few minutes I rinsed it out and all the stains were gone and for the first time it looks like new. No scrubbing, just add 1 1/2 teaspoon Joe Glo to your 16 oz mug with some hot water. Wait a few minutes and rinse. Wow, was I surprised!

This is a great product and I highly recommend.

Pros:
Cleans in minutes, Fast acting, Cleans like new

Cons:

I had my espresso machine for over a year of use and never cleaned it. I didn't realize how much of an effect all that gunk and oil in there can make. Immediately after using this stuff the espresso turned out much much better than before and the machine produced a perfect 'puck' of grounds rather than the soupy grounds I used to have. I have been using it every month or two since.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Commercial Grade

Cons:
