    descaler & cleaning tablets for Breville BES920?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,
    I have a Breville BES920.
    Can anyone recommend a descaler & cleaning tablets for this unit?
    Many thanks in advance.

    Cafetto restore descaler (4 pack) - Cafetto | Coffee Parts

    Cafetto espresso clean, 1kg - Cafetto | Coffee Parts

    Cafetto Restore is what is recommended by Breville for their machines.

    Cleaning tablets are a waste of money. Buy a kilo of Cafetto Espresso Clean and it is far more cost effective.

    How come Seattle Coffee said the Breville comes with a special filter that lasts 1.5 years and every 3 years you'll have to send it back where a techie will take the whole thing apart for a proper service.

    are you getting confused with the 900 which cant be descaled at home?``

    I think you'll find the filter in question lasts 1.5 months not years.

    Whilst not easy it is possible (not too difficult] to successfully descale a BE900 at home. This has been done by myself and others and one CSer has written a comprehensive guide on the BES900 thread including very appropriate safety considerations.
