This is how you maintain your Krups coffee machine

If you want to enjoy your coffee machine for a long time, it's important that you maintain it properly. Here, you can read which steps you should take to guarantee the hygiene and the lifespan of the machine.

Avoid limescale

Place Krups water filter

Replace the water filter

Limescale is killing for your coffee machine. The pipes become clogged, the risk of malfunctions increases, and the coffee taste deteriorates. That is why it's important to place a water filter in the water tank. It filters lime, lead, and other particles from the tap water. This allows you to prevent limescale and the coffee taste will also improve.

  • Replace the water filter once every 2 months
  • Required: Krups Anti Lime Cartridge F088
Descale Krups

Descale the coffee machine

In addition to using a water filter, you also need to descale the coffee machine. The water filter doesn't stop all the lime. How often you do this depends on the water hardness and how often you use the coffee machine. Your Krups may automatically notify you when it's time to descale. Machines without notification should be descaled once every 4 months on average.

  • Descale the coffee machine once every 4 months
  • Required: Krups Descaling Set F054
