If you are serious about finding the next mother lode, this probably won't work for you. But, if you are wanting to test your skills as a prospector, this is really sort of fun (It would be loads of fun if I actually found gold). The pans are plastic, but fine. The hammer is better than I thought it would be and the two vials are I guess to make you think you might actually fill them up with gold. If you do fill your vials up with gold, please drop me a line, along with the map coordinates of where you were panning... it's for...research, yeah that's it, research. Would I recommend this product to someone else. Yes, yes I would.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Stuff, July 9, 2014

This review is from: Stansport 603 Gold Mining Kit (Sports)
This was purchased to take to Yosemite and do some gold panning along the Merced River. It was easy to carry along because it was very light and the pans fit together. When we got back home, it was easily stored in the sturdy box it was shipped in. My only suggestion would be to go to the dollar store and purchase a small pointed shovel or trowel to include with your kit. Although we don't have Gold Fever (yet) we did have a lot of fun using the pans and even managed to find a few gold flakes. It took a few tries to get the hang of the "swirl" but we did, and we are looking forward to the next time...and ready to claim our share of the Mother Lode. LOL!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for kids or starter hobby, October 25, 2016

This review is from: Stansport 603 Gold Mining Kit (Sports)
This is a good kit for a beginner. The steel in the hammer seems a bit soft. I mushroomed the tip of the pick within three blows trying to obtain a sample. The rock was hard but the hammer should have never deformed in this way. The sample jars are fine and I found no cracks as had been reported. The small tweezers and loupe (magnifying glass) are serviceable and will work for my kids to collect "gold" in the creek.
