1. Agreed, heavy weekly cleaning with automatic machines, but nearly none for each coffee… it's a trade-off. Had this machine (Eq.9 S500) for almost 3 years and I recently had to bath the brewing unit in Siemens's descaling solution (2 in 1 tablets) because I kept getting a "clean brewing unit" message, the first issue to come up with the machine. The motor couldn't rotate the unit because of accumulated crud in the unit's central screw. Descaling is still a lot cheaper than a new brewing unit (about 80 to 90 euros), though.
