philip c asked: I have a Delonghi Magnifica 3500 that is no longer under warranty. I realize that Delonghi recommends their own descaling fluids, but would this product work just as well?

Would there be any ill effects to my machine if I were to use Dezcal? The savings would be quite significant.

Miranda GStaff: While under warranty, we recommend using each manufacturers' specified maintenance products, and for Delonghi, that is Durgol. However, Dezcal is most certainly a more cost effective alternative and we have found that it does an equally good job at removing scale buildup. Using Dezcal will not harm your machine in any way when used for descaling. Jul 8, 2014

CharleyK asked: I have used Dezcal to clean my Techniform coffee maker and have been very happy with it.

Is it the right product to use to clean and descale my teapot? I don't have much room to get inside to scrub it.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: While you can certainly use a product like Dezcal to descale a tea pot, it will only remove scale and won't clean at the same time. I might suggest a cleaner and descaler like Cleancaf, or if you just want to descale use Dezcal, or just clean, using a cleaner made specifically for removing tea build up like the Revive Organic Tea Cleaner. I have included a few links below:

CharleyK: Hi Teri - Thank you - I probably misspoke in my original email - it's my tea kettle not my tea pot. So - it's a stainless steel tea kettle that's I rinse out, but have never cleaned. Jan 23, 2014
Teri KStaff: Gotcha! Well, Dezcal would probably be all you need then, if there has only ever been water in there. Happy brewing! Jan 23, 2014

Teri KStaff: Yes, you can use either Dezcal or Cleancaf for descaling, which is a combination cleaner and descaler.

Very easy to use. I purchased this because my office Delonghi automatic expresso maker got stopped up. Turns out, it was something gummed up inside the machine, not calcifications, so cleaning the inside parts manually are what did the trick. However, having this product motivated my husband to come in and fix my machine.

Used a couple packets of the Dezcal on my aging Starbucks Barista that I bought used. After, almost a night & day difference. Pump is quieter, foaming nozzle has much better output, and my brewhead seems to have better flow as well.

Easy to follow directions. I'd suggest using the concentrated commercial strength directions initially. This product really works well. I had an old espresso machine that had buildup to the point that the pump worked but no water came out. I almost bought a new machine but tried Dezcal first(1packet then a second packet) and have continued using the machine every day with quarterly 1 packet Dezcal tuneups......saved me a ton of money..sorry Gail and Kat!

Pros:
Easy To Use, Commercial Grade

I have been lax about descaling, but this product is pretty straightforward, just drop one pill in you water tank with the prescribed amount of water, and run through. Then rinse lots.
Easy, shouldn't have put it off so long.

Without stripping down the machine I am assuming that the descale solution is doing its job. The light came on one week after my refurb Saeco Talea Giro arrived, which was a surprise considering I was using double filtered water, but it went off after descaling with this stuff and has not come back on again since. So, I guess it is happy now!

Pros:

Durgol better but Dezcal still quite goo

Review by

Quality
Value
Price

Durgol decalcifier seems to work quicker, better and with less mess. However two cleanings is about $12, if I get it on discount.Dezcal requires extra dissolving and running more volume through the machine with a longer rinse time. It still seems to work quite nice but not quite as good as Durgol. But at[$] for 4 treatments I think the effectiveness is close enough to Durgol and extra time worth the savings.

Pros:
Commercial Grade

Cons:
Messy

I had de-scaled my espresso machine couple of weeks ago with a different product thinking it would take care of the scale build up, I was wrong. The steam pressure was getting kind of weak so I thought it would be a good idea to try this out. I ended up getting this product and followed Gail's instructions from youtube video on how to use this product. Boy did it help; stuff came flowing out of my espresso machine as though I hadn't cleaned it in months. Now the pressure is back to normal and I couldn't be happier.
