A snuffer bottle (sometimes called "sniffer") acts as a hand-held vacuum by sucking the gold out of your pan when the plastic bottle is squeezed and released, and safely storing your gold until you want to remove it from the bottle.
The features of this 4 ounce snuffer bottle for gold panning includes:
- Combined size of nozzle & body: 5-1/4” x 2” diameter
- Tube size: 4-3/4” x 3/16” diameter
- Tube thickness: 1/32”
- Material: plastic
- 4 FL. oz Plastic sniffer bottle
Before using your snuffer bottle, make sure that the straw is properly placed into the cap. The straw should go no more than half to three quarters of the way down into the bottle. Don't let the straw touch the bottom of the bottle and always keep it well above the gold level in the bottle so you do not accidentally push your gold back out of the straw.
To use properly, fill your snuffer bottle about half full with water. Gently squeeze and hold the bottle, placing the straw next to the gold in your gold pan. Slowly release the bottle to create a vacuum. This will pull the gold into the bottle. One you have released the tension from the bottle and it is no longer pulling the gold up, lift your snuffer out of the water. Place a finger over the straw and shake it a couple of times. Any gold in the straw will fall into the bottle and be trapped. Repeat!
