Product Description

How can something so simple-looking pack such a punch? Housed in a shiny stainless steel, this Saeco Panarello Assembly makes finer microfoam thanks to its tiny pinhole opening, which limits the amount of air that's incorporated into your milk. The Saeco Panarello Assembly fits the following machines:

  • All Gaggias
  • Saeco Royal Professional
  • Saeco Royal Coffee Bar
  • Saeco Vienna & Vienna Deluxe
  • Saeco Magic
  • Saeco Via Venezia
  • Saeco/Starbucks Sirena
  • Saeco Aroma (new version)
  • Spidem Villa

Seattle Coffee Gear carries a full line of espresso machine parts and accessories.

If you are using a non-pressurized portafilter, then I recommend this wand to add the right air mix.
Diane M on Mar 16, 2012
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.
Mitch W on Nov 20, 2011
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,

Dkline

Best Answer: 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!

Is this the panarello described in your video review of the Saeco Aroma to get better microfoam?
Elliot R on Dec 14, 2014
Best Answer: The original black tip just creates too much foam from the get go.. The foam is overflowing the beaker before it evens gets near the right temperature. The silver tip gives much finer compact foam but just not enough on its own. the compromise that I find has been the best overall is to start with the stainless steel tip until you just get into the right temp range then switch tips to the original black one and then create the right foam for a moment or 2. Perfect foam each and every time. Many may find the stainless steel one is just the right amount of foam for you. Happy brewing

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?
KCat K on Jan 14, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

Can you do latte art with the results from this wand?
Yoseph G on May 28, 2013
Best Answer: 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!

I have been using this assembly for a while and I always seem to get a lot of water into my milk, it thins it down quite a bit and makes it taste worse, does anyone know how to fix this?
PK1234 on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: After the Brew process is finished, before pressing the Steam Button( 16 ), open the Hot Water/ Steam Knob ( 3 ) and drain out the excess water. Then press the Steam Button (16) and once the light comes on, drain the initial water and proceed using the Pannarello. I also found out that the Stainless Steel Pannerello has a very small side orifice about 2 1/4 " from the bottom, which clogs easy. Have gone back to the original black Pannerello and now get an excellent foam top on my Cappuccino.

Will this work on the Giro Idea Plus?
A shopper on May 8, 2013
Best Answer: I purchased this item for my Saeco Via Venezia. It caused problems with the machine for reasons I don't completely understand but when I switched back to the Saeco plastic model the problem went away. I surmise that the metal frother has a different aperature allows more steam than the machine can produce escape.

Will this work for latte art on a Gaggia Classic?
mary c on Mar 10, 2015
Best Answer: Unfortunately, a panarello like this one will never really make latte art foam. It really just produces a wet cappuccino type of foam, so you really won't be able to create any art from it. Essentially, you will need a traditional steam wand, so that you can adjust, experiment, and play around with the amount of air being incorporated into the milk, so that you can perfect exactly how much air, and make sure that it's the smaller bubbles for microfoam. This panarello is more automated than that, so you don't have control over how much air is incorporated into the milk.

I'm not sure that it will fit the Gaggia Classic, since we don't repair those machines, we don't carry Gaggia parts, although some parts are interchangeable, I can't guarantee that is the case here.

I have a Saeco Vienna deluxe machine, and this Panarello looks quite different from the one on my machine. Will one of these install on my machine? Will it fit over the steam arm? Can it be tightened onto the arm? My current Panarello won't stay on the steam arm but blows off when the steam is turned on.
A shopper on Sep 6, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, this Stainless Steel Panarello is compatible with the Vienna machines, you will simply need to remove the components of your panarello for this installation.

Will this fit on the Saeco Talea Giro Plus? We're having trouble getting microfoam with the Panarello wand and want to try ad adapter.
A shopper on Jun 4, 2013
Best Answer: No, unfortunately this panarello has a smaller hole than the panarello for the Giro Plus. The best advice I can give you is to tap the frothing pitcher onto your counter and swirl it after you froth in order to better incorporate the larger bubbles into your milk for better froth and microfoam.

A shopper on Nov 12, 2012
Best Answer: This Stainless Steel Panarello upgrade is generally used for swapping out the plastic panarello with a better stainless steel sleeve. The Estro Profi machines have a longer traditional steam arm, and so you could remove the nut at the bottom of the wand and replace it with this panarello, however the wand will be pretty long.

I had this panerello for maybe 2 months. The milk was slightly frothier, but not all that noticeable.

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 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. (Posted on 3/5/2014)

Nice, needs to be shorterReview by Doug
Price

Quality
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. (Posted on 2/18/2014)

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. (Posted on 2/13/2014)

We purchased this as a replacement for our plastic panarello which came with our Saeco Vienna Plus expresso maker.

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 QualityReview by Eric G
Quality
Value
Price
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 (Posted on 12/14/2011)

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

Worthy upgrade for the Saeco AromaReview by pldnyc
Quality
Value
Price
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 ParanelloReview by Chris L
Quality
Value
Price
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:

Essential upgrade. Been struggling to make a decent foam with the stock tip. On my first try with the replacement got a considerably tighter foam. Not quite pourable microfoam but after seeing this I'm confident I can get the results I want. Found it quite easy to install.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

Nice upgrade for Saeco AromaReview by Bruce
Quality
Value

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:

I love this little wand. We use it with Saeco Aroma and it does a great job. It produces a smaller size foam when compared to the wand that came with Saeco Aroma.
Note: This product was out of stock often so if you would like one, I suggest that you ask for an email notification when the product is back in stock.

Easy To Use

great wandReview by Loven Latte

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.

Pros:
Great Taste, Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

I have now replaced the standard wand with this Panarello wand, and it works great.

So shiny... and makes better foam.Review by Todd

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!

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean
