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 old Rancilio Silvia espresso machines. For Rancilio users this 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 any retro-fit.

Replaced my stock gaggia classic steam wand with this one, plenty of guides online on how to do so. Steam wand works great! Heaps better than the stock panarello wand.

I installed this wand on my Gaggia Classic (purchased in 2008), and it works perfectly. Installation took me ten minutes. It works much better than the stock (plastic) wand that came with the unit.


Works perfectly as an upgrade to the one that comes as standard with the Gaggia Classic. Watch YouTube videos for necessary replacement steps.


Wand works as it should. Better yet, it works on the Gaggia Classic. I did the conversion to the Rancilio steam wand. Check YouTube for this VERY simple change for the better. I’m no doctor but it does take some practice. Once you get it though, micro-bubbles fill the cup. Simple, easy and totally worth it.


On the particular version of the Gaggia classic I have (a Baby Gaggia with a mirrored front with four round buttons), much more work was required to detach the original wand than on others. Eventually, I got the machine apart, the old Gaggia part removed, the new Rancilio Silvia arm attached, and everything back together. It's clear that I now have more to learn about steaming milk, but my lattes and flat whites have already improved. A real bargain to improve my Gaggia machine.


No la e usado todavia por que no se como hacer el cambio. Pero llego en buenas condiciones y rapido.


I replaced the wand that came on my Gaggia Classic and the difference is night and day! Easy to replace and it makes great micro-foam.


This was like night/day vs. the stock arm on my Gaggia Classic. It even sounds right. Produces far better/tighter bubbles and you have 10 times more control with the foaming. Replacing was easy and requires 1 tool, a wrench or pliers. One thing that confused for for a minute was you have to take the nut off of the Gaggia wand (which requires you to pull it over the 90 degree bend) and put it on the new wand.


I replaced my stock Delonghi EC220 steam wand with this one. All the key components from the old wand fit this one. Pretty happy with it so far, hopefully I can finally make a rosetta!


Much, much better than the stock wand that comes with Gaggia classic. I was prepared for a fight installing it, but it all went in with no hammers or saws in 5 minutes. Can actually make good micro foam now!


After watching the YouTube video, this was a simple swap on the Gaggia Classic. It's a fantastic upgrade and makes it easy to get wonderful microfoam for latte art!


Simple install and easy upgrade for my gaggia classic. It wouldn't seem like much but it really enhances it's ability. Can't imagine going back.


I bought this product to update my classic Gaggia. I followed a YouTube video to swap parts and it worked. Now I can froth my lattes with ease.


I bought this to replace the steam wand on my Gaggia Classic. Perfect fit after conversion. Fast shipping too.


Easy fit for gaggia classic. Nice upgrade


Never even tried the panarello wand that came with the Gaggia Classic. I found out that you could replace it with this wand so ordered this when I ordered the Gaggia. I received the wand within a few days and once the Gaggia Classic arrived in the mail I didn't hesitate to replace the wand right away. Works perfectly.


tried 2 others that didnt work and when I installed this one, I was literally up and running in 15 minutes. Prefect fit and works like champ. Makes great microfoam once you get the technique right. Good job guys!!!


Like many here, I replaced the pannerello on our Gaggia Classic with this Rancilio wand. Took only five minutes to replace. Much better for lattes and cappuccinos!


I also changed out this wand on my Gaggia Classic, it takes all of five minutes as i've done it on another Gaggia. This wand works great as a replacement and easy to create great micro foam for a latte or cappuccino

I replaced the steam wand on my Gaggia Classic with this steam wand. It was easy to install and worked perfectly the first time. I mostly make lattes so I want lots of steamed milk with just a little foam - no problem. I received my order quickly; thanks for that!

I have the discontinued Gaggia Espresso model and I purchased the Silva steam wand to replace the one that came with the machine. The replacement job is slightly more difficult for this model than for the Classic since the fitting between the steam wand and the steam pipe does not extend down far enough to be accessible from outside of the housing. I had to remove the top and the fitting to the steam valve to allow the steam wand fitting to drop down for removal. It is not complicated. The new wand is a big improvement!


I ordered this for a Gaggia Classic. Easy install and works perfectly and makes much better steamed milk. I'm happy you carry the old wand.


The only tricky piece of the install was taking the nut off of the original Gaggia. You have to bend it just a tiny bit in order for it to easily slide off. I didn't use any tools, just my hands and bent it so little you can't even visually see it is any different. Honestly when I did attempt to bend it, I didn't think it had moved, but it was just enough to slide the nut off the original. So much better of an option than the gimmick plastic foamer thingy that came on the Gaggia Classic.


Just bought this steam wand for my Gaggia Classic. I've read and heard from so many different sources that this is a must do upgrade when it comes to the Gaggia Classics. I'm very excited for it, and will be installing it as soon as it arrives.


This upgrade is a must for any Gaggia Classic owner. Easier to install that you would think and it will take your Classic to a different category.


I bought this to replace the panarello wand that comes stock on the Gaggia Classic. Mine came with a metal wand, but I also had a plastic tipped wand that I played around with, neither were very good. It took about 5 minutes to install, very easy to do. The hardest part is getting the rubber booty off to slide the Gaggia nut on. The Classic does not have a huge boiler and can't steam like some more expensive machines but this upgrade really is a must. I don't get perfect microfoam every time but i think that is a user issue. If you have a gaggia machine there's no reason not to put this on


Installed this on a Gaggia Baby Class and it worked like a charm. Thank you for carrying parts at a great price! When it comes time to sell my machine, this wand increased the value.

Replaced my Gaggia Classic steam wand with this one. Installing it took maybe 5-10 minutes and it works like a charm.
