Hard water can wear your espresso machine down alot sooner than you think, but DeLonghi has a solution: the DeLonghi EcoDecalk Descaler. This 500-mililiter wonder will keep your semi- or superautomatic machine calcium and limescale-free, which increases your coffee machine's lifespan and guarantees a great cup of espresso every time. Featuring all natural biodegradable ingredients, this eco-friendly bottle is also crafted from 50% recycled plastic and is safe for all types of espresso machines.
Each bottle contains four doses.
How the DeLonghi EcoDecalk Descaler Works
Pour one portion of DeLonghi Descaler in your machine's water tank and flush it through the machine until the water comes out clear.
What is the difference between using the Delonghi descaler vs. GOO GONE coffee maker cleaner in my Delonghi Magnifica XS super auto?
A shopper on May 23, 2013
Best Answer:I am not familiar with the Goo Gone product, but if it is labeled a cleaner, and not a descaler, then it will not be breaking down the mineral deposits that a product like this DeLonghi Descaler does. Also keep in mind that you will be voiding the manufacturer warranty from DeLonghi if you use anything other than their branded products. Below is a link with information regarding regular maintenance like descaling.
the type on my packaging is too small…where do I find directions for descaling with this product? From what I can read both my espresso machine and the descaler tell you to refer to the manufacturers directions
Best Answer:It is in the espresso machine manual. On my machine it's pretty straightforward, you use one serving size of the rescaling liquid (there are numbers on the side of the plastic bottle delineating the measurements) and put it into the water reservoir and then fill up the rest with water. Then run the program on the machine. Hopefully you know the trigger to start the cleaning program. On my machine you hold two buttons down until the steamer button goes solid and then press that. On a side note the new environment friendly cleaning solution smells awful, so you may want to run the cleaning program a second time with just water.
Wendi, they mean to follow the instructions from the manufacturer of your espresso machine. I found a video on how to descale my Rancilio Silvia by searching on Seattle Coffee Gear's website (although that one video on the page now appears to be private for some inexplicable reason.) If you can't find a tutorial for your machine on their website a quick search on YouTube should do the trick. It's really just a matter of diluting the descaler to the right concentration and then making sure to let it sit in the different parts of your machine for long enough to do the trick. Hope that helps!
Hi - I've been using this product with my DeLonchi machine for a couple years. Each bottle is worth 3 descalers. pour it into the water chamber with a full tank and run the descaling process - if your machine doesn't have an auto function, run an entire cycle with descaler, then run a second with clean water through to flush it.
Hi Wendi, The directions are in the user's manual: Basically, place 125 ml of descaler in 1 liter of water in the machines water tank. Then follow the specific directions in your owner's manual on the steps to follow for descaling the machine.
Actually, it was a serious question, but maybe I wasn't very clear…my owners manual refers me to the descaler instructions and the descaler tells me to follow my machine's direction. They each refer to the other…but I'm going to take Jenya's and Alexander's suggestions and google or youtube the directions. But I want to thank everyone for their help and suggestions
I am wondering the same question. For my Saeco brand super automatic they use a powder which is sodium carbonate. Nespresso espresso machines use a lactic acid solution and charge 14.99 for two treatments. That is a bit steep so i am looking for a similar solution. hope this helps
I'm afraid I can't answer that! Are they on the bottle? I know it works, you have to keep it clean and if you wait to long on the cleaning you can plug up the machine. I did and it's expensive to have it repaired.
I have a bottle of this that I used for a DeLonghi machine. I'm looking to get a Breville machine and I assume that this will be a fine descaler for the Breville as well. Is this a reasonable assumption?
The price paid for the name brand descaler is a good value here! (Posted on 5/25/2015)

Good Value for the PriceReview by Stephen
Third time I have gotten stuff from these guys and its all worked great. I bought this stuff to clean my expresso machine, it worked fine and was about the same price for 4 doses as I normally paid for a single dose. The other nice thing was that I used the same container for all 4 doses so it was more environmentally friendly. (Posted on 3/2/2013)
