Xavax OKS Multi Silicone Grease For the Care and Maintenance of Coffee Machines Food-Safe – Very expensive for a tiny tube of grease but worked well.

Very expensive for a tiny tube of grease but worked well. . I was stunned at the tiny tube when i opened the package – i was expecting something at least the size of a tube of toothpaste for the price. That said, it does clearly state the weight on the picture, and you only need a small amount each time so i guess it will last quite a while. It did the trick and my seized up coffee machine is now working fine. Too expensive for just a tiny tiny tube of grease.

Works as advertised; no complaints.

Less expensive than gaggia grease. . This was bought for my all in one automatic coffee machine – gaggia. It is four times the quantity of the gaggia grease and just about double the price, so better value. Unfortunately food quality silicone grease is expensive. Here are the specifications for the Xavax OKS Multi Silicone Grease For the Care and Maintenance of Coffee Machines Food-Safe:

  • Special silicone grease for use as a sealant and lubricant in the kitchen and domestic situations and workshops for the brewing assemblies and seals in fully automatic coffee makers, milk containers, etc., toxicologically harmless and tested according to the German Food and Feed Code (LFGB)
  • You can also use it without any problems for greasing and lubricating kitchen equipment like all-purpose slicers , mixers, food processors, etc.; it is also suitable for use in hot and cold water valves in the sanitary, heating and air-conditioning fields or in food technology applications, food-safe
  • High degree of effectivity due to excellent adhesion on all materials, neutral response to plastics/elastomers, consistent properties: no drying, hardening or bleeding, can be used at between -40°C and +200°C
  • Resistant to hot and cold water as well as acetone, ethanol, ethylene glycol, glycerol and methanol, does not affect the odour or taste, transparent silicone grease tested by the German Technical And Scientific Association For Gas And Water (DVGW) in accordance with DIN EN 377
  • Always observe the manufacturer’s instructions. Silicone-based plastics like silicone rubber, for example, can be dissolved by silicone grease. After opening the package, use within 36 months – stored between 0° and +40°C

I’m sure the grease is fine but the problem i endured was dispensing it. I’m sure the grease is fine but the problem i endured was dispensing it. The tube needs a spout to reach the positions the grease has to reach.

Restored my bean to cup coffee machine to health. Thought this was very expensive, but it worked a treat. My delonghi bean to cup coffee machine was spilling coffee inside the machine, not forming nice puck and brewing a weak cup off coffee. After some research on internet i found infuser unit stuck, using this grease and a tutorial on you tube video it was a simple matter to get my espresso back to full strength [.

Fantastic love it best grease ever. The price was good and and delivery was fast and efficient. Grease wors perfect on my coffee machine.

Our bean to cup coffee machine malfunctioned. Replaced seals and lubricated with this product for a smooth and quieter operation.

Expensive, but essential product for the maintenance of coffee machines. Expensive and only lasted for one service of the infuser unit on my delonghi coffee machine. Did the job and improved the quality of the coffee produced by my machine. Considering the cost of food grade silicone, i’ve started to wonder if makes more sense to invest in a new infuser unit when they are available on amazon for approx £20.

Great stuff,made such a difference to my coffee machine.

Made the coffee machine much quieter. Hardly need much so it will last ages.

Only used once but seems good.

I have a de longhi beans to cup machine and needed to service the diffuser. A tad expensive and you don’t need much for each service so it will last for many years.

My bean-to-cup machine sounds a lot more happy are re-lubrication.

Works well and softens rubber seals on saeco coffee machine.

Small, but you don’t need much. Our delonghi bean to cup machine had been making horrible graunching noises at startup for some time, so i finally took it to bits and gave it a through cleaning. The hardest part was taking the door/spout mechanism to bits. When i eventually managed it, the disgusting gunge inside the spout made me feel quite ill. The o rings on the diffuser needed replacing, and the whole thing needed a thorough re-greasing, and so i bought this. I was initially rather dismayed at the small size of the tube, but you don’t need much, and given that this is the first time i have done this in about 5 years of ownership, this tube is going to last me a good long time. I may not wait so long to the next strip down though. The result is a silky-smooth-operating machine once more, no more horrible noises, and the coffee is no longer being filtered through 5 years’ worth of accumulated filth in the spout either.

    Great product – would definitely recommend this. Used a tiny, tiny bit on the cog of my luvete slicer and it stopped the ‘catching’ noise instantly. Great product – would definitely recommend this product.

      Expensive but enabled me to repair a brew unit that would have cost even more to replace. . My bean to cup coffee machine (delonghi magnifica) was not throwing the coffee pucks into the puck container but rather all over the internals of the machine. This turned out to be a symptom of the brew unit not moving properly so needed stripping down and re-greasing. Clearly a food grade grease was needed which is why i bought this product. What can i say – the brew unit now works perfectly so it might seem expensive but a lot cheaper than buying a new brew unit.
