Rancilio Silvia Old Version Steam Wand
- Product description
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.

- Works great in my Gaggia Color Review by Bennett
Installed this in my Gaggia Color (Red) and have been having great success with it versus the plastic pannarello wand. It was a straight forward install, in fact you could do it without even taking the top off. I will recommend this replacement to every Gaggia Color owner I run into.

- Installed on Gaggia Classic Review by Andrew
Have always been a little frustrated by the Gaggia Classic Panerello Steam wand and found out about the easy upgrade to this nice wand. You can see the video here (https://youtu.be/OWoNXAq2Kus). The upgrade was easy and the product was just as advertised.

- Going well so far! Review by Ilyn
I, too, installed the Rancilio Silvia wand on my Gaggia Classic (actually on both of them, now) and am having some good results in making "microfoam" instead of the giant dry-type of foam I could produce before. Still working to perfect the technique, but I have a lot of confidence in the new wand. Also, my new thermometer which attaches to the pitcher plus keeping the pitcher 1/3 full of milk in the freezer for a short period before steaming have helped immeasurably!

- Practice, practice, practice. Review by barry
Just installed this steam wand on my Gaggia New Baby machine replacing the stock Pannarello wand.
The install was easy (about 15 minutes), and I anticipate I'll eventually be able to produce the perfect micro foam with more practice.
