Complete Breville Oracle Touch Maintenance Plan

Your Breville Oracle Touch machine is an expensive investment in everyday happiness. To maximize the longevity of your machine, as well as the taste of your coffee, we recommend these maintenance steps and service intervals. Please note that we no longer recommend descaling on a regular basis... descaling is causing issues for many machines. Instead use soft or balanced water, and use the Claro Swiss (or equivalent) water filters to reduce hardness.

Points of emphasis:

Descaling is causing serious issues on some machines. We recommend using quality water from the onset, and changing your Claro Swiss water filters when the reminder appears on the machine. Claro Swiss filters can be pricey; you can opt for this version, which also reduces water hardness through ion-exchange resin and active carbon.
