I like the idea of this kit but was highly disappointed that several of the drinks require an immersion blender. The gelification is extremely difficult without one. The recipes that come with it are terrible. The videos are nice for technique but they managed to mess up the recipe for a screwdriver! Also be aware that most of these recipes take quite a while to make and must be consumed almost immediately after they are finished. It's not really something you can pull out at a party to entertain your guests with. You will also go through the included ingredients really fast. The screwdriver recipe needs 2 pouches of gelatin for one drink and considering the kit only come with 10 of them, that's one expensive screwdriver and it takes over an hour to make. I think most people would be better off buying the ingredients by themselves and looking up the recipes online. The included tools consist of a set of measuring spoons, a small slotted spoon and 5 plastic pipettes. Assuming you own any kitchenware, the only think you may not have are the pipettes and you can pick those up or order them really cheap Plastic Transfer Pipettes 3ml, Gradulated, Pack of 100.
