I know what a steam burn feels like, and thats no fun. so goes the dont touch to f-ing hot wands. Then there is the no burn wands, well yes they wont burn your skin off, but they are not something you will hold onto for anything more then a few seconds. Then I read about the cool to touch wands. I havent got a hand of one of these, so I wonder, is there a real no burn wands?

Hi, the wand won't prevent burns from steam, what they are, is a cooler to touch wand. Often they are double tube wand so the hotter tube that carries the steam is inside and there is a cooler outer tube that does not get so hot as to burn you if touch it after steaming.

But you know this. The wand on my ECM is cool enough to hold onto without much pain after steaming but I would not call it cold but it won't injure you either.

My Expobar has "no burn wand" but what it really is, is just a teflon coating on the inside of the tube. Gee not much going on there. Anyways I have seen video's of users grabbing the steam tube and not blink an eye.

On the other (ouch!) hand, you can weld with a Cimbali's wand.

I can hold the steam wand on my Duetto 3.  It's just another of those with a teflon tube inside.  It gets warm after steaming a couple of drinks.
