Over priced and under whelming.

Got this as a wedding gift and we were VERY disappointed. We are huge Mead drinkers and on paper this should have been a GREAT gift for us.
Once open, we found You just don't "Add Honey". It was missing items listed on the box.
Let me state, the box was factory new and sealed... so this was not an "Opps" return item we got.
"1 gallon glass fermentation jug and metal lid." -Lid Missing
Yeast for making five 1-gallon batches." NOPE
and The Glass HYDROMETER was Broken
Sad to say it went back... But we found everything in this kit at a local Brew shop for Half the price.
Pros: Appearance
Cons: materials, Not Durable, Design, instructions

What a joke!

"You supply the honey - our kit includes everything else you need" as it's advertised is inaccurate. When you read through the directions, they note that after you pitch the yeast, you add yeast nutrient (such as Fermax). No yeast nutrient is included in the kit, however. This seems to be the fault of the company that actually produces the kit. I sent them an email inquiring about this oversight on 9/14 and no reply. Plus, the "complete step-by-step directions" themselves are vague and confusing... not good for beginners. I bought a mead-making book and the supplies contained in this kit at a local brewing store for roughly half the cost of this kit. What a joke.
This is the first product I've ever returned to WS. Always excellent customer service from them, both online and in store, and this time was no exception. Kudos to WS - the Roseville store in particular - for always being understanding and helpful. This particular supplier was just a bad choice.
Cons: materials, Quality, instructions, incomplete
