It comes all boxed up w/ recipes and usually the correct amount of ingredients. It's advertised as fast and easy but it's not always; problems w/ missing ingredients. Furthermore even if they perfected this I still have such a disdain for the product I'd never recommend it in any way. It requires the "chef" to dirty a bunch of cups, pots, cutting bored. Which is a burden latter naturally. If you would like to dirty a bunch of kitchen utensils on recipes that are fluffed up go for it. It has led me to nearly having a full blown aneurysm w/ the tedium of it all.
