Top 10 Best Descaling Tablets
for November 2022

When you boil a kettle or wash dishes, the minerals in your water can leave residue on your heating elements, causing them to burn and fail. Descaling tablets use natural chelating agents to remove mineral deposits from your heating elements, restoring them to like-new condition.

Our testing experts put descaling tablets to the test to determine whether they worked to remove mineral deposits and whether they were easy to use. We tested tablets for rate at which they worked, how quickly they removed deposits, whether they caused any adverse effects, and even how attractive the packaging was (because sometimes it's hard to judge something by how it looks).

Descaling tablets are designed to remove deposits from kettles, coffee makers, espresso machines, dishwashers, and other appliances. They can also remove scale from water heaters, coffee machines and humidifiers. In order to test tablets' effectiveness, our testers boiled kettles, washed dishes, and cleaned the heating elements in both electric and gas cooktops, as well as tested the tablets' ability to clean shower heads and drains. We also tested tablets' safety, including whether or not they had harsh chemical odors or side effects. Here are the 10 best descaling tablets you can buy in 2022.

  • PLUS REPLACEMENT FILTERS to get even better tasting coffee
  • GOOD FOR YOUR MACHINE - No matter the purity of your water source, all water eventually leads to a build up of limescale and corrosion over time. This causes your machine to run slowly, produce less coffee per brew cycle, and it impacts taste. FreshFlow Descaling Solution removes and flushes limescale and other mineral buildup to improve your coffee experience and significantly extend the life of your machine
  • 2 GRAM TABLETS - Don't be fooled by 1gram tabs that cannot hold up to the cleaning cycle pressure and do not have the right amount of cleaning agent!
