Scale build up in your espresso machine greatly affects the flavor and aroma of your fresh espresso shots! Simple, safe and fast, Durgol's Swiss Espresso Decalcifier works like a charm against scale build up in your espresso machine. It not only quickly decalcifies your machine's heating and brewing components, but also lubricates them to keep them in smooth running condition. Highly effective, fast-acting and food-safe, this decalcifier rinses clean and leaves no residue. For use with all brands of espresso machines. Available in a pack of two 4.2 oz. bottles.
What are the ingredients? How do they compare to other de-scalers and de-calcifiers?

Best Answer:This Durgol Swiss contains 15% amidosulfonic acid and auxiliary ingredients. Most decalcifiers/descalers are made of either sulfamic acid or citric acid, and will be either liquid or powder. Our tests have found that they really preform the same, no matter what the brand!
I see that my Nespresso machine comes with a descaling kit that uses mainly lactic acid. Is there any difference between that and the durgol's main ingredients? Do you know if I can use this to clean my nespresso, too?
Best Answer:No, it's not harmful if consumed in small quantities. Really, only if you were to drink the full bottle, would you get a stomach ache because of the concentration of citric acid, but there would not be any long term effects.
Best Answer:Durgol uses an acid-base to quickly remove limescale buildup, but won't really do much for regular cleaning. You'll also want to regularly clean your milk system and backflush your machine (if applicable). What machine do you run?
Durgol Swiss came with my DeLonghi Magnifica when I got it more than 6 years ago and I've used it for descaling every time since then. It not only works great for descaling the espresso machine, I use the steampot from the top of the woodburning stove to catch the Durgol after it is pumped through the Magnifica so it gets descaled at the same time at no extra cost.

Easy to Use. WonderfulReview by Gilby
This product works well with my Philips Seaco DTP B001. Looks like water and works as intended. Nothing like a fresh brewed coffee taste in the morning.
I shopped around and SeattleCoffeeGear had the best price. My Philip Saeco DTP B001 was purchase at SeattleCoffeeGear 2 years ago. (Posted on 4/5/2013)

Did the trick!Review by Coffee Queen
This descaler is much easier than the powered mix that I have previously used. Priced reasonably, and arrived so quickly. Nice to have the 2 pack, so I'll be ready the next time the descale message appears on our Gaggia.
Easy To Use, Commercial Grade

Great in DeLongi Magnifica!Review by Wally
A bottle of Durgol was included with my machine, and the first time I needed to descale, I used it. The second time, I bought the product recommended where I bought my machine. It wasn't Durgol. After several descaling sessions, my machine started misbehaving.
Instead of sending it in for repair, I decided to find some Durgol and try it.
I was amazed at the IMMEDIATE result. The machine works like it is brand new now! I can't guarantee the same result in all cases, but my plan is to buy this product in bulk (save on shipping) and use it for routine maintenance.
Easy To Use
