TASSIMO Cleaning Disc
These discs work well. .
I have found that if I use the cleaning disc frequently, the spout does not get a dirty buildup that needs to be scraped out. I went for several years without using the disc frequently and found that the lattes would no long froth. This was because the spout was clogged. Once I cleaned it out, the machine worked like new and the cleaning disc keeps it clean.

Expensive & somewhat inconvenient
This works relatively well -- until the bar code starts to wear off. One may only use it about 6 times before the print starts to fade or wear off and then it won't work at all! I had to open/close the disc placement housing several times before it would work using the descaling solution. When I tried to flush the system, as per instructions, it would not work, even after opening/closing turning on/off a dozen times or more. Now I have to buy a new one and wait approx 2 weeks before I can use my Tassimo. Not a good thing!! Of course, one must recommend the product, because there is no alternative. Skipping the descaling process will simply damage the machine beyond use. Thus, I recommended it with resentment. One should be able to buy a new label to affix on the disc, for about $.50.
