Rancilio Silvia – Amazing: P However I used it in my Delong’hi

Works perfectly in my gaggia classic, 5min install.

Put this only my eco 310 machine. Couldn’t get the old wand to come out, so instead drilled a 4. 8mm hole through the plastic, slightly closer to the front of the machine than the existing wand and threaded through. Wobbles about a little bit, but not nearly as much as i expected. It works great, just as expected. No complaints for a great cheap upgrade.

I purchased this to fit on to my gaggia classic, to replace the plastic sheath steam wand thing that comes with that – took 5 mins to swap, and is brilliant.

  • Excellent upgrade for my Delonghi Dedica EC685 Coffee Machine
  • A Must For the Gaggia Classic.
  • Works well with gaggia classic 2002. Good steam and foam.

I love my gassia classic; it’s a coffee beast. I didn’t think it could be improved but this cheap and simple modification has made it even better. I would almost say this is an essential upgrade to the steam wand which comes as standard. It’s not difficult to get great results with the wand and there are a couple of videos on youtube which guide you through the installation as well as how to get the perfect results once it’s on. Very pleased with the purchase and the results.

Used to retrofit to a gaggia classic, simple job to do (lots of guides on the internet including youtube) and works great.

Arrived promptly and is just as described. It is going to be used to replace the original steam wand on my delonghi ec155. The delonghi steam wand if perfectly functional but this is an improvement that it worth the small investment.

Bought this to replace the steam wand on my gaggia classic. Easy to fit using an online video on youtube.

Just fitted this to my gaggia classic, and works a treat. I can now make great microfoam, far better than the panerallo(?) plastic one which comes with the machine. I can see why they put it on, but this is a great upgrade.

If you own a gaggia classic you really should be upgrading to this. It produces far better micro-foam than the pannarello wand, which in fact produces froth more than foam. Okay, there’s more to using this than there is with the pannarello wand, it will simply heat the milk if you use the same method of just submerging the tip but it’s a very easy skill to get the hang of and there’s plenty of guidance out there on the intarwebz. Under £13, a spanner & a few minutes to fit will transform your hot milk based beverages.

Fits my gaggia classic perfectly and i can now get perfect foam every time.

Much better than the original.

Great replacement for my delonghi dedica ec680 steam wand. Much more focused pressure going through the wand to make nice creamy milk. Relatively easy replacement, just follow the youtube video but remember to take out power button and both earth terminals before sliding out the core of the machine.

Fitted this to a gaggia baby twin without a problem.

Perfect replacement for the standard gaggia classic wand. Now i have great, hot, lightly foamed milk instead of a bucket full of froth. Note: if you are buying this for your gaggia then you will have to slide the rubber grip off to swap the union nuts as the rancillio won’t fit the gaggia out of the box. One of the bends of the gaggia pipe was a little tight and the nut wouldn’t slide off. Needed to straighten the pipe with some tools first. Might have just been mine with this issue so don’t let that put you off.

This was bought to replace a tired steam wand on a gaggia baby twin and fitting was even more simple than in the youtube video which gives all the basics – the redundant nut now comes off the new wand without the need to remove the flange. Working slowly and methodically it took less than an hour, including testing and cleaning the machine and shower disc. The new wand takes some getting used to and practising with water with a couple of drops of washing up liquid added is useful to get the hang of creating micro-foam. The necessary vortex is easier to see in water than in bubbling milk where you have to rely more on sound. Once you get it right though it seems to have more pressure, produces good foam and heats up the milk faster. All in all a good upgrade for the gaggia baby twin – and is less expensive then a replacement gaggia wand.

Perfect foam easy to use fitted to my new baby gaggia 06 with the ball joint steam wand no problems no leaks the best little upgrade you can do for this wonderful machine.

Once you’ve figured out how it works it produces a better froth than the gaggia baby frother, super modification for the gaggia.

Excellent, much better at foaming milk than the original stream wand on my delonghi dedica ec685. Really happy with it and installed it myself.

Hiwithout the nut it’s fits the new giggia classic 2015 model the tip hole is a little to big for the new gaggia classic 1mm hole works better for me.

It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Works perfectly on baby gaga.

I bought this to modify my gaggia classic. The mod was very easy, it fits perfectly and the foam is so much better (after a little practice). Would definitely recommend it to anyone with gaggia classic.

  1. 5.0 out of 5 stars fitted it to a gaggia cubika
    Bought a cheap 2nd hand gaggia cubika and pimped it out with this wand. Just watch the youtube vids on how to do it. It’s the same process for the cubika as it is for the classic.

    Fitting was easy, but you need to take the connector from the old steam wand and use it as a replacement for the screwed nut that comes as standard. No need to open up the classic the connection can be made with a spanner from under the housing.

      1. 2.0 out of 5 stars No Cubica Joy
        Having to rate this as ‘don’t like it’. Didn’t fit on my cubica despite all my research and it stating it would. Fit on my previous gaggia which i gave a friend for free, so now he has a decent steam arm as well for free, he likes it.

        Fitted to my gaggia classic easily (minor surgery to get the nut off the old wand). Far better than standard steam wand.
