16" and looks good.  have not had a chance to try it out yet.  But, if I did get gold in the pan, I would not be throwing another load of dirt on top of it.

Because the gold collects in the centre of the pan.... When you tip the pan to wash out the unwanted dirt/rocks/black sand, the gold goes dry, so when you refill with water your fine gold floats everywhere. This pan is a failure at trying to reinvent the wheel IMO.
A good idea is to have with you a plastic bottle with a diluted mix of common dishwashing liquid and before you start a dish just give it a  short squirt and that will stop your fine gold floating off  ;)

Cheers
Barney.

Cheers Barney, I do know about using detergent just seems the turbo pan is not very turbo at all, I can pan faster with a frypan.
Fair comment Peter.

Just a eye dropper , size dose of detergent is all you need to break the surface tension of the water .

Has limited use if you have a lot of clay, works best with clean gravel.
