I also use it regularly to clean other food stained items. I soak our stainless steel Klean Kanteen containers with Full Circle to get rid of eventual coffee discoloration inside the containers, and a simple soak overnight makes the containers look like new.
I also use it to clean our enameled cast iron cookware for cooked on stains from sauces happen. Again, an overnight soak and a good as new.
Interesting that another reviewer suggests a premature wear issue on the group head gasket using this product . I have not experienced this, and have been using this product for several years. Granted the Silvia doesn't have an actual E61 group head, but it's the same size and the Silvia allows you to use Rancilio commercial group head gaskets (or portafilters) that are used in their or any E61 machines, and that is the current gasket I use. I've used the "soft" Silvia gasket and the "hard" commercial gaskets and haven't had a problem using this product to clean either.

- Breaks down the rubber gasket on E61 brew headReview by Derek
Price Quality Value
If you don't have any rubber material to contend with, I say go ahead and use this cleaner as it is extremely powerful, dissolving all traces of coffee crud, making your machine sparkle.
However, if you are using this to clean an espresso machine with a gasketed brew head, I would advise NOT to follow the supplied instructions for a quick cleanup simply by placing a 1/2 teaspoon of cleaner in your blind portafilter and backflushing. I don't believe this will adequately rinse out the dissolved rubber gasket material sufficiently - which means disassembling the brew head for each cleaning. (Posted on 4/26/2014)
