For Rancilio users, may we recommend upgrading to the new version valve assembly? It is a semi-challenging remove and replace procedure, but the parts for the old version are slowly being phased out anyway, so...
Steam wand replacement for Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine. May require two o-rings that are not included.
Although we are aware of people using the Rancilio Silvia steam wand (our item R_1054) for retro-fitting the wand in the Gaggia units, working primarily with commercial cafe equipment, it's not something we have any experience with, and so cannot make any technical recommendations on this retro-fit

Very easy retrofit for the steam wand on the Gaggia Classic... took about 15 minutes from start to finish. Just pop the top off the Gaggia, put a wrench on the nut inside, loosen the nut on the outside. Put the other on with the old nut (you have to bend the original pipe a little to get it off). Amazed at how much better steaming is now... you can get it as hot as you want and the pitcher doesn't fill up with foam. Awesome.

I ordered this component to replace the stock steam wand on my Gaggia Classic in order to make microfoam. It was a very easy modification

Perfect replacement wand for my Gaggia Classic. Didn't even need the extra O-rings that I bought. For months I couldn't get decent froth for latte art with the Gaggia's Pannarello wand. After a week with the Silvia wand, at least I can form basic rosetta patterns, even how primitive at this stage.

Works great on Gaggia Classic No sanding required, just swap out the nut and you're done.

I have an old "Gaggia Coffee." I bought this wand to replace my original equipment steaming wand, which was not long enough. The process was not difficult, but the steam hole in the new wand is too big. I have a solution, but others may or may not like it. With the new Silvia wand, too much steam comes out, and the milk heats up before I have created enough foam. It's high quality microfoam, but once the milk heats up, you can't make any more. So I bought a 1st-line steam tip. It has three very small holes, and screws right into the Silvia wand. But the holes point out at an angle, and when I used it, only one hole generated microfoam. The other two holes warmed up the milk, but did not contribute much to foam generation. Undaunted, I cut off the tips of a round toothpick and plugged up two of the holes. Now I have a one-hole steam tip on my frothing wand. It's a very small hole. I can get tons of high quality microfoam without overheating the milk. The toothpick ends fell out, but the holes stayed clogged up. They get sterilized every time I make a cappuccino. All is good. However, I regret the whole thing. I wish I had just bent my original Gaggia wand so that it would fit deeper into my frothing pitcher.

This wand worked perfectly as an upgrade from the panarello wand on my KitchenAid Pro Line dual boiler espresso machine. I can make really good latte art now Thanks Espresso Parts for a great product at a great price. You guys rock

Work perfectly fine with my gaggia classic, just take reference to old post/ youtube how to replace the original one. Whole pro endure could be completed in 15 mins

perfectly fit on my gaggia evolution. far better than stock wand. milk frothing is easy. Highly recommended. just unscrew the bolt of stock wand and bend the wand and slide out the bolt and place it to new wand and screw. be careful while screwing don't twist the copper tube inside the machine...

It was a perfect fit for my Gaggia Evolution. I use the original nut that came with the machine and you don't need to order any O-ring. No need to open the machine either.

Like many others, I used this to replace the stock wand on my Gaggia Classic. It was easy to replace and works great

This was a great fit to replace the steam wand on my Gaggia Classic. I didn't even need to make any adjustments or file down any metal interface parts. All that was needed was to slightly bend the neck on the existing Gaggia Classic wand, so the nut could be easily slipped off for reusing to connect this new Silvia wand.

In the pursuit of creating "microfoam" with my Gaggia Classic, I replaced the stock steam wand with the Rancilio Silvia steam wand. It was no problem to fit the Silvia wand to the Classic. Took about 5 minutes. There's definitely a learning curve to create good foam. I've been at it about 2 weeks with the new steam wand and am starting to get good results.

Replaced the factory original on my Gaggia Classic and it works great Good froth takes practice, but once learned micro-foam becomes a no brainer.

Direct replacement on my Gaggia Baby Class. Haven't used it enough to say if it's better than what came on the machine, but as an FYI for others it was a direct replacement. The tip where it connects is the exact same length and diameter. No modifications whatsoever needed.
