I got this for my father who has gotten into cooking. We thought it'd be a fun activity to do over the holidays it upon opening found out that it doesn't come with a number of ingredients (minor hurdle as some our more basic household ones) but it doesn't include directions. You have to search online for the directions to make it. I've never heard of a cooking item that doesn't come with directions. Pretty sure he'll never even use it now. Very disappointing.
