The product smells strongly of some foods - how can I get rid of it?

Published on 2017-07-28

Some foods with strong smells can transfer the smell to some parts of the appliance with time.
This does not affect the quality, hygiene and performance of the product and you can keep using the product safely!
Nevertheless, clean the water tank to get rid of the smell. See corresponding Frequently Asked Question - Chapter 'Cleaning and Maintenance'.
