If you are hoping to make perfect lattes you should buy the Pannarello Latte Art Wand for a few dollars more than the standard Pannarello wand. While I have watched the videos and have had some success with the standard Pannerello Wand, the one that comes packaged with the Classic Gaggia, it is no where near as easy to use as the Latte Art wand. I read so many reviews of people having issues with the standard wand that I know it wasn't just my inability to use it properly. Many people resorted to buying a retrofit wand from another company in order to make a perfect microfoam. One wonders why Gaggia doesn't package the Latte Art wand with their machines, It would make a lot of people happier with the overall experience of using their machines. After all, when spending a few hundred dollars on a capable espresso machine you don't expect to have to immediately buy another part. GAGGIA! PLEASE PACKAGE YOUR MACHINES WITH THE LATTLE ART WAND! and save new owners the frustration that is created in trying to make a perfect microfoam with the finicky standard wand.

Some Improvements I Would Recommend for This Product:
Well the Gaggia Machine nozzle could be higher which would make it easier to get your pitcher out from under it easpecially when you fill it close to the brim. I don't have any thought about improving the Latte Art Wand, so far.
