Found 10th Apr 2014
Bought one of these lastnight, best price I have found online with free delivery. There seems to be no limit on the amount with free postage, not sure if this is a mistake or not ?

Use citric acid, can get 400g for about £2.50 on ebay.

The machine cost me over £300, would rather have the real stuff for £6.99

I do hope your machine doesn't have an aluminium boiler.

White vinegar about 60p

Again why pay lots of money for a machine then to cheap out like that. That's like buying a lambo and getting it serviced at Jo blokes round the corner.

I've not used one of these and I've had my bean-to-cup machine for 9 months But I do live in a very, very soft water area, eg the nothing was registered on the little water testing strip I got with my new dishwasher and I don't have to put salt in it.

Or why not go the whole hog and shove some sulphuric acid in?

Aren't the ingredients in this stuff simply citric acid + tartaric acid, not exactly expensive ingredients, Gaggia are milking this for all they can get.

There are plenty of coffee forums with people prepared to offer suggestions of alternatives - a quick google search results in loads of comments, at £7 a time, I'd want a cheaper version.
