I find this seed sprouting system to be easy to use and the fact that the units are stackable to save space is great. I was saddened to have at least one 1 lb. pkg of seeds growing mold after less than 48 hrs from the preliminary soaking. That is the 3 part salad sprout mix, lot # HP 3 PS. We purchased 12 lbs of seeds to sprout and have had good luck w/the other 4 bags we've opened so far. I'm glad to have a variety of seed types to experiment with but have already identified several I'm less fond of and wouldn't purchase again.
I love the ease of use. Three trays allows me to sprout 3 different kind. I need broccoli for cancer, He needs fenugreek for prostate issues. I keep both of these growing and then one we both like is the protein powerhouse blend. I gave it only 3 stars because the plastic seemed to have been exposed to heat and was warped when I received it. It started separating around the drain holes after only one weekof use. I have contacted Overstock and they very kindly, agreed to replace it. I am waiting for the replacement, in the meantime I am still using the defective sprouter. I still recommend it because I think it is a good product. Check out the you tube video of the "wheat grass trucker". He uses the same Handy Pantry Sprouter. Cool stuff!

Really enjoyed this product. The only reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars is because the plastic isn't as durable as you would think, but I'm still happy with it. The amount of seeds is way more than what I expected. The sprouts came out great and were ready to eat in 4 days! A little bit of seeds goes a long way.
I was very impressed with the sprouting seed selection. The Deluxe Sprouting Kit itself was a little disappointing though... 3 plastic dishes and four lids/bases was a little under-whelming. I have seen other sprouters since my purchase and I think they might be easier to use. The time, effort and area it takes up on my counter to produce a batch of sprouts was more than I wanted to put into the process. I did pass this kit along to a practicing vegetarian and she was extremely happy with the kit and because of that this gets 4 stars and a recommendation from me. If you truly know the benefits of sprouts this might be worth the effort.
