What do I use this for?

Recommended Posts

Apart from to say it's "Pannarello", yeah, I also have vague memories of it being a weird air intake thingy from a Krups or something. I had one. It definitely goes on the steam wand in normal operation. Usually a pannarello is a larger diameter plastic hood/tube thing that goes on the end of the steam wand but I guess they serve the same purpose (to mix air in). The idea is to make it 'easy' to get foamy milk. Trouble is, it also makes it impossible to get decent micro foam. You're best off just taking it off and leaving it in the box. Use the actual steam wand tip and just put it close to (just under) the surface of the milk, adjust depth and angle until you are spinning wet paint. That'll work better.
