How often do you need to clean tassimo?
If you are using milk and chocolate tassimo pods, it is a good idea to clean your machine at least once per week otherwise you can spoil the taste of some of your tea and espresso drinks.
It really could not be much simpler, just insert the service disc and run the cleaning cycle and you are done. We would recommend using descaling tablets once a month to keep both your drinks tasting good and your machine in tip top order.

All coffee machines will build up lime scale over time, which if left, will damage your Tassimo machine. Descaling regularly (depending on hardness of water) is required to prolong the life of your machine and importantly ensuring your drinks taste great every time!
You should aim to descale your machine every three months (max) but as mentioned above, it will depend on your water hardness, if you have hard water you will need to do this more often. The great thing about your Tassimo machine is that it likes you and wants you to clean it so it tells you when it needs descaling when the red descale light comes on, so no guess work required on your part. Helpful!
How long does it take to clean tassimo?
It literally takes 20 seconds to run the cleaning cycle to flush the tubes and perform the basic clean, so there is no reason why you would not do this at least once a week!
