I am clueless

Is it with a hard g, or a soft g?

Soft G.. like a J.  (for Gaggia, anyway.. I'm not sure about DeLonghi, but I suspect that one's a hard g)

Hmm, I am not sure either, but you could pay a visit to the Instructional Videos on Whole Latte Love - click here. If you play one of the videos the speaker will pronounce the name of the machine chosen. I don’t know if there is a guarantee for the accuracy of the speaker’s pronunciation, but anyway…

Wow, thanks for the great replies!    

*I wanted to go to a store and ask, but I live in a rural area, and I am legally blind, and cannot drive, and besides, where I live, there are no stores to shop at that carry espresso machines.  My driver would have to drive me to the next biggest town, 45 minutes away, and that's just not an option right now.  

So thanks for the help!

For a while before seeing a thread (and the mentioned WLL video) here about it, I thought it was pronounced as it appears...Gag-ee-uh...lol.

That would be spelled Rancilio, and pronounced ran-chilly-oh (not ran-silly-oh or ran-kill-you). :-)

Heh, fat fingers.  

<<<<< As you would have seen I had spelt it correctly in my info to the left  :)


Good to know it's Ran-chilly-oh - I'd heard the silly-oh pronunciation from the supplier and thought it sounded somewhat less classy...
