How to Clean and Descale Your Brewer
Published  2/8/19

Keurig® brewer performance matters. Descaling regularly removes mineral build up that can affect taste and quality, ensuring your Keurig® brewer brews a perfect cup, every time.

Depending on the mineral content of your water, calcium deposits or scale may build up in your brewer. Scale is non-toxic but if left unattended can hinder brewer performance. Regularly descaling your brewer every 3-6 months helps maintain the heating element, and other internal parts that come in contact with water. Calcium deposits may build up faster, making it necessary to descale more often.

For step by step instructions and videos of how to descale your brewer, please access the following:
