                                      Kit contained most everything needed except the milk.
                                      Directions could be a tad cleared.
                                      YouTube tutorials were recommended, but links weren't given.

                                          This was a fun gift to receive. We made the cheese together with our son and daughter-in-law who also received one. It was a nice, different gift to receive.
                                          Also, the product came damaged and Uncommon Goods was excellent with replacing it. I would definitely buy from them in the future. Great customer service and follow-up.

                                                The kit would not make cheese. Uncommon Goods sent a replacement kit and it would not make the cheese either. So far we have gone through 4 gallons of milk trying -- and still no cheese.

                                                      I gave one to my boss. He said he hadn't had this type of cheese since his grandmother used to make it. I gave one to my father-in-law. It reminded him of his trip to Italy which he thoroughly enjoyed.
