How To Clean Nespresso Piercing Plate | Step-By-Step

Before you begin, gather a few pieces of stuff: 

Once you have gathered all of the necessary items, follow these simple steps to clean the piercing plate or diffuser plate: 

Step 1: Disassemble

  • Switch off the machine and you should unplug it.
  • Locate the brewing mechanism part.
  • Disassemble the brewing mechanism part from the machine.
  • You will find a nut beside the piercing plate.
  • To remove the nut, pry it up with a little flathead screwdriver.
  • Bring out the piercing plate carefully.

Step 2: Clean The Plate

  • After you get the plate in your hand, you will notice that it has many small holes where the coffee residue clogs in.
  • These holes are responsible for the coffee to come out.
  • Take the thin wire or pin and use it to unclog the coffee residue from every hole on the plate.
  • Clean every hole carefully.
  • Now, use a small amount of hot water and liquid dish soap in a bowl to clean it off.
  • To avoid damaging delicate surfaces, make sure not to scrub too hard, just enough force to remove any dirt and residue but without scratching or harming the surface of the plate.
  • If the residue is tough and stubborn, use diluted vinegar to clean the plate.
  • Make sure to rinse all of the soap off with warm water before drying the surface with a soft cloth.
  • Finally, dry the plate off with a soft cloth before using it again.

Step 3: Reassemble

  • After the piercing plate is cleaned, dried, and ready to use, reassemble it on the brewing mechanism part.
  • Remember to place the plate in the actual place.
  • Do not forget to screw that nut you unscrewed earlier.
  • Put everything together and plug the machine into the power outlet.
  • Put a capsule on the machine, start it, and brew a cup of coffee to see the difference in the taste and its quality.
