Cleaning a Siemens eq300 coffee machine
The Siemens eq300 has a removable brewing unit which takes the hassle out of cleaning – this is easily removed, you just rinse under running water and then replace, ensuring a consistent, great tasting coffee and prolonging the lifespan of the machine.
I recommend descaling this machine around every 6 weeks to keep your appliance in tiptop condition. Using the calc’n clean function built into the machine makes descaling a less challenging chore.
This takes around 40 minutes with very minimal effort, then your machine is ready to start producing fresh top quality coffee once again.
Milk Froth Function
The milk frother function is a great tool, it preheats the milk to your desired temperature whilst frothing into a smooth consistency, making extremely creamy Caffe Crema.
The frothing tool makes no mess in comparison to other frothing tools. With a touch of a button, this tool heats the milk to the temperature you prefer, which saves time and energy pre-warming in a microwave.
