Vevor 5 gallon still
For the price you can't beat it. I've already done five runs and it works well. The one drawback is the flex line & pressure fittings. Expect to plug some leaks during still runs. Also, the silicone seals provided have already started to show wear, but like I said, can't beat it for the price. This is a great introduction still to get started. I will be moving on to a larger and higher grade still very soon.

Works well
Set this up and just ran some water through it. Pretty easy to run, decent quality. Few minor issues with getting the the pump set up so that water input and output match in the coil cooler bowl. At first it wanted to over fill (meaning the water coming in was more than the water going out. After about 20 minutes later I got the flows tomatch by adjust the valve of the water input. Other than that, got the heat up to 212 where the water would turn to vapor and soon enough water start dripping out of the coil. Worked great and will be using it to make up a batch of something a littlestronger than water. I’d buy it again. Good price.

Ok for price
Probably great for a startup set. Seems like would be good to have a separate mash tun and some other hardware

Works well. MINOR modifications make it better.
One of the best kits in it's class. I don't use the thumper, instead use the provided pipework to set the chiller off to the side. The recirculation pump is surprisingly useful. The silicon tubing is great, it just needs to be longer (to reach from the chiller on the counter to the cold water reservoir (bucket) on the floor. The chiller really works, but the return line should be larger. it wouldn't hurt for the chiller to hold more water either (at least taller side walls). Tuning the inlet and outlet valves to keep the coils covered but not overflow the pot was the most difficult part in all of this. Pay attention to washer orientation and don't tighten everything down until it is all assembled. The distilling instructions are very basic. I strongly suggest not relying on them for operation.

3 pot 9.6 gallon distillation kit
Pretty happy with the kit. High quality parts are holding up well. Some pieces needed reworked to prevent vapor/liquid leaks (pre-assembled incorrectly). Overall very happy with the kit and it distilled just fine. Looking forward to using it for years to come. I would recommend this product..

Haven't used this still yet.
I haven't got a chance to use this still yet. The stainless steel on the boiling pot seems pretty thin, but I don't know if that will affect performance just yet. I've increased my stars from 3 to 4 because they seem to have sold me a 5 gallon pot when I remember ordering a 3 gallon pot, but 5 gallon is better.

Parts
Well no major complaints, condenser is too small, thumper is to small. Line arm is to small. But is a good value and working still. My advice to vevor. Sell parts , gaskets , o rings, different size pots separate, fittings,stuff for customizing there still. More people will buy your stuff if you sell parts to keep it going.

Awesome contruction - Geometry upgrades
This is the best constructed product I've bought. It's got a heavier, though it should be more, base for heat retention and fantastic added features incuding: include condenser circulation pump, quality brass fittings everywhere and stellar stainless dogs and handles. My impressions after running a vinegar distill to clean everything out is as follows:#1 there is absolutely no need for handles anywhere. Remove still pot handles and still lid handle. Anyone can use the lid dogs as anchor points if the still pot is rocking an rollin.#2 Lid Geometry.Lid dogs should be at 45, 135, 225, and 315 degreesLid temp gauge should be ~2/3*lid_diameter @ 270 degreesCondenser out should be ~2/3*lid_diameter @ 0 degrees#Condenser PotCentered at lid:-----Left-handed cooling:----------Valved input and output should be ~ 160 degrees----------Condenser Product Output spigot should be ~ 200 degrees-----Right-handed cooling---------Valved input and output should be ~ 30 degrees----------Condenser Product Output spigot should be ~ 200 degreesPipe observations:*Still lid output pipe should fit condenser input or gin basket input** This means that gin basket output pipe must fit condenser input** There is no need for the 90 degree copper bend pipe that is supposed to go from still_lid_out to gin basket in. Just include two pipes that will fit still-to-condenser and still-ginBasket-condenser.*Get rid of the short copper pipe and tube from the condenser out. Put it a 12-18 inch surgical tube like the tubes for the circulation pump but that fit the condenser output. It's much more convenient.Finally, no one needs the fermentation valve if they're buying this product. Save yourselves some money. And if you're going to make it a kit, meaning I had to assemble mine, make sure there are gaskets for above and below connections as well as a roll of teflon tape. That'll be much more useful that the extraneous copper pipes and fermentation valve.

Seals
Product arrived in good shape. Well packaged. I had my doubts about the seals. After the first run with water, my doubts were proven correct. The still pot seal was ok, but the thumper leaked. Silicone made in China makes me nervous. God only knows what's in that.I peeled off the seals and used canned biscuits! It works like edible caulk. Seals perfectly . Ran another pot of water to test the biscuit theory. Great results.My first true run produced more than I expected. Overall, I'm happy that I got this rig. Good introduction into distilling.
