Product Description

Steam distillation is the best method to separate essential oils from plan material, because unlike simple distillation, the product does not have to be a liquid for separation. This apparatus consists of a steam generator flask, which is heated, and a product flask where the steam extracts the oils contained in the plant material. The vapor then condenses in a water-cooled condenser. Set contains everything you need to extract essential oils: * Graham Condenser * Water Supply Tubing and Adapters * 2000ml Steam and Product Flasks * Stand and Clamp * Stoppers, Glass Tubing and Supply Funnel *

I would like to start by stating that what attracted me to this product was the price. I had checked into many other alternative products, all in the $300+ price range. I thought I would take a chance, and try this distiller. Overall, the distiller does what it is meant to do. Separate the oil from the plant material. However, there are a few issues that I have found after using the distiller a few times.

First off, the hydrosol has an odd odor from the rubber tubing used. I have tried washing the tubes without any improvement. Once separating the oil from the hydrosol using a separatory funnel, the smell is gone from the oil, but remains in the hydrosol. If you don't plan on using the hydrosol, this isn't an issue. The second, and dangerous observation I made, is that you cannot add water to the water flask while distilling oils.

From the pressure of the water flask while boiling, if you try to add any water via the funnel, the pressure forces it back up into the tube, than the funnel, and overflows. This is a serious issue!!! DO NOT add water unless you disconnect the water flask, and add it by taking the rubber stopper off. It is the only way to add more water safely.

Apart from the two flaws I mentioned, the only other drawback about this flask is that steam can condense in the bottom of the plant material flask. It takes a few hours before it pools up on the bottom, and sometimes can block the steam from flowing freely. Having stated the cons, if they do not appear to potentially cause issues for you, I would recommend purchasing this essential oil distiller.

For the price, I can deal with the drawbacks. It just takes a little but more effort and TLC to get to the end result. If the issues I mentioned are important to you, I would suggest seeking an alternative distiller.

This is kit is awesome. The flasks are huge, but that's ok. It's great for just about any distilation project. We had to call and have them send another condenser to us because the other one broke during shipping. We had no problems with anything as far as that goes. The only down side to this kit is that it gives off a rubber smell but that can be fixed by replacing the hoses with something better. When adding water to the first flask, through the funnel, when the water cools down a bit, it tends to suck the water from the other flask (condenced due to the second flask not being heated) up into the tube. not too big of a deal though.

I tried replacing the hoses with some food/temperature safe plastic hoses but I still get strong rubber smells in my distillates from the stoppers. The glass is good quality. It totally works, just not for folks trying to preserve essential oils/make booze and have it not smell bad.

Problem -- if you live in Texas get a permit first. I am pretty upset over a lack of a warning about that. Hope I don't get a fine or jail time.

I received all the components in fine condition except for the Graham Condenser. Everything was packed well, except for this. I contacted the vendor via Amazon and they promptly took care of the issue by sending another one. It was a bit bigger than the original and was packed with extra care. The product itself works great. I've made gallons of hydrosol and over 10ml of essential oil. It is a lot of fun and my family loves the products.
