How to Clean and Descale Your Brewer
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.
