Thanks for the video!! Helped me out alot!!! BTW everyone…the man is
trying to help us out here. Box wrench or pliers? It unscrews either way…

With enough practice you can get decent micro foam (well, pretty close to
it) with panarello wand.

Thanks for posting this. I didn’t realize how easy this mod is! I went
ahead and ordered a wand from SCG.

thanks for the post!

Ben Rawles says:

The only video on YouTube (that I could find) that clearly shows how to do
this mod from start to finish. Happy to put up with the odd fuzzy shot for
that. Cheers!

replacing the Gaggia with this Rancilio wand voids the 2 year warranty. I’m
buying a Gaggia today and the salesman told me this.

Thanks for uploading. Will be getting the Rancilio wand to do this asap…

There is this newfangled tool called a wrench you can use instead of pliers
if you don’t want to scratch stuff.

hi! wonder that rancilio wand is the version 1 or version 3? v3 is quite
expensive…if v1 works, may get v1…

Should I take the washer off OR NOT?? You wrote to take it out, but in the
video you keep it in!

Hello ! I changed the old wand with the Rancilio one but I do not
understand I am not able to froth milk correctly with it !!! It was better
with the original one from Gaggia ! I do not know what I am doing wrong !
Any idea ? Is there a way to do it ? Thanks for your reply…

Big thanks for the vid. It took just 5 minutes and I got huge improvements
with the Rancilio wand!!

I’ve just got my Classic and the wand is creating huge bubbles and tonnes
of foam. Thanks for this video, it’s just what I needed – did it make a big
difference for you?

Daryl Cross says:

I’ve yet to steam, but I was able to instal the new wand in less time than
it took to watch your video. Thanks much for posting.

Thank you for your insightful response. I am still waiting for Santa Claus
to bring my box wrench.

donslibi says:

Nice vid, and explains everything I need for the new wand I just ordered,

SuperficialOptimist says:

I haven’t figured out the optimal way to froth with it either. I do know it
doesn’t just make a mess of huge bubbles like the panarello wand. I mean to
watch some Rancilio Silvia videos to see how people use the wand on that
machine to get some pointers. Maybe when I figure it out I’ll post another
video. I don’t drink Lattes or cappuccinos very often.

SuperficialOptimist says:

Yes, now I think that with some practice, I’ll be able to froth milk
correctly. no huge bubbles and huge foam ball.
