How to Descale a Delonghi Magnifica Automatic Cappuccino Coffee Machine?

If you own a Delonghi Magnifica coffee machine, descaling is a piece of cake! Regular care and preventative maintenance on your machine keeps it in tip-top shape and preserves its life span longer.

Regular descaling is critical for maintaining the quality of espresso and machine life. In order to avoid the buildup of scale, coffee residue, and hazardous bacteria, you should descale your machine at least three or four times a year.

Always use a water filter in addition to descaling, especially if you live in an area with hard water. Ensuring that scale formation does not occur in the DeLonghi espresso machine's pipes will help keep your machine free of scale build-up. 

As a result, the mineral scale on the heating element is effectively dissolved, which extends the life of the machine. Although cleaning your coffee maker and descaling your coffee maker are both crucial for keeping your machine brewing better-tasting coffee, these procedures are just as important when the coffee maker is first purchased.

It consists of only four steps.

1) Remove the water tank and the water filter from the system. 

2) Fill the tank with 100ml descaler (lime scale remover) and 1 liter clean water; stir well.

3) Place a large bowl beneath the steam nozzle and turn the switch. When the light indicates that the machine is ready, turn the switch back on.

4) Empty the tank and refill it with clean water, then turn the switch again.

The machine will now flush, and after that, the descaling process will be completed!
