Seattle Coffee Gear Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Diane M: If you are using a non-pressurized portafilter, then I recommend this wand to add the right air mix. Mar 16, 2012
Mitch W: A terrific replacement for the plastic one that that comes with the Saeco Via Venezia. It produces perfect micro foam and looks great on the machine. Also, very easy to install and is easy maintenance. Nov 20, 2011
A shopper asked: I have a Saeco Sirena and have used 3 panarellos over the years. They work great for the first month or two, delivering up good foam and very silent. And then it just heats the milk while making a lot of noise.

I've taken the tops apart and washed the grit out of the two rubber washers and replaced them -- with the top, smaller washer going in with its rounded edge up and flat edge facing down into the bigger washer.

They still don't work right.

Does anybody know what the problem is or have any advice?

Thanks,

Andre P: Hi. This happened to me a couple of times but it wasn't a faulty panarello, rather the way I was assembling it after washing. If the black plastic bit inside is not pushed down so it hangs down lower than the outer stainless steel bit (like in the picture), the panarello just makes a load if noise and blows big bubbles in the milk. I use a pencil to push the plastic inner bit down and that fixed the problem. Good luck! Dec 8, 2013

Brendan O: Sounds like the tiny hole on the side is blocked. This happens quite frequently if you're not careful. We keep a needle handle to poke it clean on a regular basis. If it is blocked, the decline in performance is immediately noticeable. Dec 8, 2013

William D: In addition to the above:

Cleaning the pinhole frequently, and making sure the plastic inner part is seated so that it protrudes, work for me.

Debi H: My daughter has the machine but she in currently in China for an extended period of time. I do remember her having this issue and she took it in to have it checked. Then she just needed to clean it every time she made a coffee. It is a good idea to have the machine looked at once a year just since it is such an investment. She did order the part and try to put it in herself but to be honest it is best to have a tech do it. They are very helpful and give you tips on future maintenance. That would be my suggestion.

Jeff N: I've had similar issues with my panarellos and have replaced mine as this happens. Then I discovered that the issue is with how the bottom plastic insert piece is positioned inside the stainless bottom tube. You need to find a narrow object to insert though the top end of the bottom tube to push down on the black plastic piece. You need to apply a moderate amount of pressure to get it to click into place. Once in place you should be able to re-assemble and it should work like it did in the past. Dec 9, 2013

Jared W: I wonder if Dkline didn't put the washers back in the correct configuration? That is vital. You all have a good video on how to install the panarello. I have not had this exact problem. Sometimes there is inconsistencies with the milk and have found half gallon jugs of milk much easier to foam. Hope that helps. Good luck Dec 11, 2013
Reply to Jared Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Dkline: In my case, the problem was entirely that the pinhole in the stainless tube was clogged.

As Brendan and William suggested, I just stuck a pin in and presto -- perfect foamy milk!

And no noise, either.

This is why I love the Internet.

Thanks everyone!

Gregory M: I am new to this but watch videos online there seem to be a number of them. I have this panarello and it works well if i run it correctly. Putting the tip under the milk enough to get a good roll in the pitcher,but not out enough to cause bulbling. Dec 14, 2013

Dkline: Wow, a couple of good ideas to try.

I always wondered what that little pinhole was.

Thank you Andre, Brendan, and William!

I'll report back the results.

KCat K asked: I have this for my Via Venezia and it is a vast improvement but I still have problems with big foam. Not as much as with the original but... I covered the pinhole this a.m. with cling wrap and got quite lovely micro-foam (forget art, though) but the cling wrap gets hot enough on the chrome to make it sticky. I heard in a Via Venezia video by SCG that people were blocking the pinhole. Anyone know what was or could be used safely? Jan 14, 2013

Scott P: You probably won't want to hear this but the cheaper black plastic panarello works much much better than this pretty stainless steel panarello. I too like lovely thick micro-foam and wasn't getting it so I switched back to this older black plastic style and am getting far superior micro-foam......depending on the milk used (Organic Valley Whole milk) and the freshness of the milk used.....and there is no need to block the panarello pinhole.
Regarding the milk, if I know I won't use a half gallon in a week, I will buy only a quart and I always buy the farthest out "best by date" because it is the current release. I have found that cold, fresh whole milk works the best for great foam. One other thing to constantly check is to make sure the steam apparatus isn't starting to block with calcium buildup from the water. I use Dezcal every couple of months and daily run a wire up the metal wand through the panarello opening to make sure the steam has a totally open path. If you are not getting the full head of steam , the milk or panarello won't make any difference.
My last comment would be to not put too much milk in the pitcher because home espresso makers don't have the steam power that commercial units have. I only put enough in for each latte and the level is usually at the bottom weld mark of the stainless steel pitcher handle. I know that sounds weird but it works out for either of my 2 stainless steel pitchers. Each latte is then made with just enough fresh cold whole milk rather than warmed up and resteamed milk which gets flat quickly.
This is what I have found that works for me and hopefully it will be of some help to others.

kimberley k: I find that by using the right size steaming pitcher, I get this handled. I have a smaller rattleware 16oz pitcher. Because it is shorter, the level of the milk rises quickly and naturally covers the hole at just about the right time. Of course there are several factors and tweaks to consider. I use 1% milk, I put my pitcher in the freezer before use and I watch the action. I get a nice rolling motion at first by holding the pitcher at an angle, as the milk begins to take in air, I watch the size of the foam. If it increases too quickly, I lift up the pitcher and let the milk cover the hole or I hold back if necessary. I have perfected this over some time and silky microfoam for art. Any small amount of larger foams gets worked back in with a tap of the pitcher on the counter and a swirl or two. I can actually walk away for a minute while foaming and let the pitcher sit if I am not worried about art, ie: taking in a thermos to work. Otherwise, it only takes a small amount technique to get it right. Jan 18, 2013

Ernest G: My experience with the stainless steel panarello is similar to yours - much better foam than with the original plastic panarello, but a little more foam than I prefer. Once I allowed the pinhole to plug, but the resulting milk is about what you'd get using a microwave. I also tried using cellophane tape to wrap over the pinhole (like your cling wrap), but its glue gets too hot; cleanup is a hassle. Here are two things I haven't tried yet, but am considering. 1) Wrap a thick rubber band around the panarello, to partially block the pinhole. Cleanup should be easier than with the tape. 2) Get a multi-hole steam wand tip. That's what our local espresso shop uses for their lattes, and the resulting micro foam is great. Jan 15, 2013

James A W: I upgraded my Aroma with this SS Panarello and I found that it did a much better job than the stock panarello. I got the best results by keeping the milk level just below the pinhole until the temperature reached about 100 degrees. After it reached this level, I lowered the panarello below the milk and kept it there until it reached 140 degrees. Jan 15, 2013

kimberley k: Guys, I just posted about the panarello. I also have the plastic but upgraded to the stainless. I feel that a smaller pitcher is key. The rattleware handle free 16oz from SCG has been perfect. As I stated in my original answer, it raises the level of the milk because it is shorter and allows the milk to naturally block the hole at just about the right time. Jan 18, 2013

KCat K: can you elaborate? I don't know much about this. I sink it in pretty low but maybe that's the wrong answer. Jan 15, 2013
Scott P: I have found that putting the tip about half and inch or so into the milk is enough and don't work it around and around because it introduces too much air so you get big bubbles. It should be deep enough into the milk that you can see the foam bubbles being sucked down into the milk....that is what makes them small and tight. When the foam is micro and how you want it then I go deeper into the milk to get the milk really hot..touch the pitcher sides .....and stop when it is very hot and with micro foam....don't keep going and going because it will break like making mayonnaise. Jan 15, 2013
Phillip J: Depending on how much milk you start with, the kind of steaming pitcher and the machine you are using all will help determine your results. I can only suggest you experiment and be patient.

Yoseph G asked: Can you do latte art with the results from this wand? May 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jim & Leslie F: While the panarello does make way better foam then the stock plastic wand, for awhile our machine shot this wand off into the milk every day. We solved this by re-installing the original upper plastic bit and then slipping the lower panarello chrome wand (below the black part) onto the plastic, and it foams great. We have days with weird barometer/altitude issues here at 5000ft elev, or maybe it's the milk going off, when the foam is all chunky and bubbly, but 95% of the time this makes lovely dense even foam. We find the foam sticks all over the outside surface (inside too) and a bit slips and drips down as we remove the cup, not sure if this is significant in terms of making the art. We lack the awesome skills for intentional art lattes so all we ever make are random-chance Rorscharch lattes ie, espresso shots poured into the cup of steamed frothed milk: ooh it's a taxi, oh nope wait, now it's Johhny Depp. Unfortunately we can't specify if the chrome is a better drawing tool than the plastic wand. Best of luck and lattes to you! May 29, 2013

Brad M: Yoseph,
To put my answer into perspective, I don't steam milk often and can't do latte art. My take on the wand is that it is a drastic improvement over the standard one that came on my Saeco Aroma. You should note that the Saeco uses a single heating element that is excellent for espresso but a tad under-powered for steaming. It takes a bit of finesse to get it right. As for the latte art, I suspect (again, I don't know from experience) that the spout on your milk frothing container will matter as much as (or possibly more than) the wand. Finally, if you drink mostly espresso like I do rather than drinks requiring steamed milk, I'd recommend a bottomless portafilter. It will give you a lot more control over the shot once you can see the output.

Yoseph G: Thanks! What I am looking for is to make lattes in the morning during the week (easily) and to have the option of practicing latte art over the weekend. I am leaning towards getting the Vienna Plus and Breville Milk frother (to use during the week) and perhaps this add on wand to try to get in some latte art when I have more time .Thanks again to everyone for their responses! May 29, 2013
Craig M: Yoseph,

I have never been able to make latte art with a foam wand. In terms of this specific wand, I also cannot make art. Maybe someone else can, but I cannot. I have tried, sort of, recently, and it seems difficult/impossible. I am not sure if it is a lack of skill on my part or something about the wand.
Sorry for what is probably an unsatisfying answer.

I still like the wand, the foam, and the java, though. ;-)

Better foam and hotter milk

I've had my Saeco for about 6 years and the only complaint I've ever had is that the steamed milk isn't hot enough, and I've replaced the black plastic panarello once already. This stainless one fixes the temperature--I'm shocked to have perfectly hot milk and even better foam. Ordering a second one for my mom's machine.

This is an improvement over the device supplied with the machine. However, it still produces too much foam. I tried blocking the air hole and that seems to reduce the amount of foam, and then you can use movement of the steam wand up and down to control the amount of air. It works, but no where as well as the plain steam wand on the original machine.

After recently purchasing a Via Venezia with a broken panarello, I purchased this in hopes it would be an improvement on something I would need to replace anyway. It seems to do a great job (however, I have nothing really to compare it to), but it's a bit expensive for what essentially amounts to a plastic compression fitting and a large ballpoint pen assembly with a hole in it.

The biggest complaint is it's too long. Any video I've seen of the Via Venezia in use shows that you can move it over the tray to blow out excess water/steam. You CAN do that with this, but you have to move it awkwardly out of place, and with the assembly getting as hot as it does, isn't super practical. I'll deal until I can get a nicer machine, but besides this oversight, it's a nice product and it does the job.

Connector great, wand not so much

Bought this for all the reasons given by others for my Gaggia machine. At the beginning it worked great but after a month or so, the wand made a lot of weird noises and was not frothing as it should. I removed the wand from the connector piece (the part that attaches to your steam wand) and used the old plastic wand instead and it has been working great. I really just needed the connnector because the plastic one had broken, still this was unexpected and my so-so review reflects this.

Purchased August 2013, arrived September, I've been using it for less than two months and it's broken. I cleaned it carefully, didn't lose either of the two washers etc.., but it just won't make foam. Instead it makes noise.

I'm ordering another and hoping I just got a bad unit, and that they aren't all so short lived.

What a difference this makes over the stock panarello for my Via Venezia. Great microfoam. Don't even get the machine without ordering this panarello with it.

Much better foam than the stock plastic panarello on the Via Venezia. Very well constructed quality piece. Just over-priced, though.

Changing out the plastic panarello ( which cracked after the first few uses anyway) for this one made all the difference in the quality of my foam. Fantastic for capaccinos.

Fits Saeco Aroma perfectly, makes nice microfoam, way better than the black plastic one, and looks sharp with the Stainless Aroma.

A little pricey but I think it was worth it as I expect it to last years.

Definitely works better than the all-plastic panarello that comes as original equipment. Makes substantially better foam but still hit or miss at producing actual microfoam. Well made and finished but still a bit pricey for what is provided.

I bought this thinking it would froth our milk better than the black plastic one that came with Via Venesia. I didn't like this as well as the stock one, probably because we like a lot of foam to slurp. It is still excellent and better quality than anything I've been near, but I would not bother upgrading if I had the black one, which does a fine job in its own right.

makes frothing easier, I don't have to go through all the moving around to get the perfect froth. My expresso machine is older and the wand is a little on the long side, it touches the tray when positioned all the way down.

Cons:
Little long

We needed a replacement part, since the old part had begun to leak. We have used the cappucino maker several times daily for several years. A rubber part was bound to wear out over this time. The new part was inexpensive, easy to find on the order form, arrived quickly, was easily installed.

We purchased this as a replacement for our plastic panarello which came with our Saeco Vienna Plus expresso maker. After only a month's use, we promptly LOST one of the two washers inside while cleaning the plastic panarello. For three months, we went without...tried washers from [@], gerry-rigging, etc. to no avail.Then I found SeattleCoffeeGear who had not only the plastic replacement but this stainless steel model. Yes, it cost $10 more for the SS version, but it is so worth it!! SHAZAMMO, you've got instant foam! Quickly! And easy to clean! If you are on the fence, debating if you want to spend the extra $10 bucks for the SS version, DO IT! You're only talking about 2 or 3 coffees "out" so go ahead and get this version. You'll be happy you did! Thanks SeattleCoffeeGear!

Marked Improvement in Microfoam Quality

Review by

Bought this add-on for my roughly year-old Aroma machine - I had been extremely unhappy with the quality of milk that I was steaming/frothing for drinks and often had issues where the old wand was pumping so much air into the milk that it was overflowing the pitcher every time, no matter how little milk I put in it.

Installation is a cinch. After watching the video tutorial on SCG's youtube channel and playing around with the new wand for a few weeks, I can confidently state that my foam quality has improved about tenfold. Without much work, I get a nice microfoam (not pro quality, but I'm no pro barista either) that is more than sufficient for a quality cappuccino.

My only complaint with the product is that I've had it leak on me occasionally. Every once in a while some water will leak out onto the countertop when the valve is closed and the machine is on. Not sure if this is an assembly issue, but I had this problem with the plastic wand every once in a while too (about the same frequency). So if you're hoping that a superior part fixes this issue... it doesn't.

Still, a great product and a welcome improvement for my machine.

Pros:
Aesthetically pleasing, Easy To Use, Great Taste

Cons:
Leaky, Hard To Clean

This panarello wand does a much better job of making microfoam than the stock unit. The stock unit created a lot of large bubbles. This replacement unit makes much smaller bubbles which in turn makes for a better latte.

SCG has a video on how to replace the unit and it was just as easy as they said in the video. You probably won't get "latte art" quality foam, but you still get a great latte just the same. Let's face it ... in the end its the taste that counts!

Pros:
Easy To Use, Makes Better Microfoam, Easy To Clean

Cons:

I've owned the Aroma for about four months now and recently upgraded to this wand after watching the promo video on the item. It really does a much better job to produce denser foam of micro-bubbles, which I couldn't accomplish with the original plastic wand. It's a little tougher to pull out for rinsing but nevertheless well worth the [$] investment.

Improvement over standard Paranello

Review by

Quality
Value

This stainless steel Paranello wand upgrade is a definite improvement over the plastic standard wand. The foam quality is much improved, however still not perfect. I've found the best technique to use with this one is the "surf the hole" method found on [...] and make sure to use extremely cold milk. I put my milk in the frothing pitcher then in the freezer for about 5-10mins before frothing to make sure it's just above 32F. Just make sure it doesn't freeze! The best I can do with this wand and the Saeco Aroma is about 2/3 microfoam, 1/3 steamed milk. It's very difficult not to get some large bubble "dry foam" on top, but if you work the milk a little that will mix in with the microfoam. Being new, my understanding is this is the best you can do with a machine of this level. It works for my needs (I like cappuccinos), just keep in mind you will need to practice and get the technique down to get consistent results. I recommend this product as a big improvement over the standard wand which puts too much air into the milk and makes lots of large bubble dry foam. This one will make dense microfoam with practice, but don't expect a full pitcher of microfoam for pouring latte art

Pros:
Better quality foam, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use

Cons:
Still not perfect

Nice upgrade for Saeco Aroma

This is a very nice addition to my Saeco Aroma espresso machine. The stainless steel looks great and is nice and heavy. The only thing that would have helped would have been some simple installation instructions. It's difficult to push the top part of the panarello onto the steam wand unless you disassemble it first. I got it right after I unscrewed the steel cap, then pulled out the small black plastic cap and the rubber sleeve it holds in place. I slid these three parts onto the wand first, then the base of the panarello went on easily to its full depth. The trick is then to squeeze the rubber sleeve back into the base. It gets difficult as it gets deeper, but once you have it far enough to be able to replace the small plastic cap and then the steel cap, you can screw the latter down and push everything back into place.

Pros:
Easy To Use

Cons:

My espresso machine wasn't frothing anymore (tried de-scaling and other things) so figured it had just died. Ordered a new machine through Seattle Coffee gear and this new Panarello wand. Well the wand arrived before the machine and I put it on my old machine and voila I was getting great froth again. Fortunately, my order hadn't shipped and I cancelled the new machine. I did have to order a larger frothing pitcher because it makes more foam them my 8 oz pitcher could hold! I do want to say that when it is time to get a new machine I will be getting it from Seattle Coffee gear. [...]. Since the machine I have presently is a single broiler I think learning about temperature surfing it is going to help my machine last even longer.

Great Taste, Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

After working to get my espresso consistent and wonderfully delicious I had to top it with too-thick, too-airy foam when making lattes. So much effort wasted!

I bought the Panarello wand as a replacement for the stock black plastic wand that my came with my Saeco Aroma in hopes of reducing the incorporation of air. I'm happy to say it works as advertised!

Installation was as simple as could be and I immediately noticed a difference in the foam and milk produced. Bonus: it's shiny stainless steel and matches the look of my machine.

While it's still no commercial grade wand, my wife is much happier with her lattes, which is good enough for me!
