3M stainless steel cleaner with a soft towel would be a better bet

Update. I changed to another wooden knob. This time from Aliexpress.

I have upgraded the Bianca's water tank cover's tiny little metal thingy to a wooden pull knob.

Wooden knob from Aliexpress

The long screws came with the knob, so ignore them. Use the stock Lelit's screw.


The original Lelit's screw is a perfect fit for the wooden knob.



And the outcome:

The one on the left I bought from Shopee.
The one installed is from Aliexpress.

BTS:
After removing the rust spot using a 3M stainless steel sponge, I used a spare Ti washer for the screw and a very thin stainless steel washer for the wooden knob.

can't say it ever occurred to me to change that, but it looks nice and matches well enough. For $5, why not?

Oh man just saw the black and white versions are up at Clive. So tempted to get this now. Let me reread this thread. Haha

I descaled my Bianca this morning. I am on an every 18 months schedule. I could not get the liquid Puly this year at a reasonable price, so I used this one off Amazon which was cheaper and (best I can tell anyway) is the same acid. Seemed to do the same job based on the color of the water that came out.

Did you also descale the steam boiler? If so, I'd love to know how. I personally use soft water so don't need to do it, but I am curious.

just pull water/descaler through the steam boiler via the hot water dispenser.

Matt black LELIT BIANCA V3!

The matt black's drip tray has a different design! Seems better than the other versions!
