So easy I'm sorry I waited so long to try it! Living in a small apartment for several years, I've missed having an outdoor garden to grow my own vegetables. This is a great alternative for me. Just remember to run water through it twice a day. (My brother recommends 3/4 trayful of water with 1 tablespoon vinegar, followed by 3/4 trayful of plain water (don't forget to empty the bottom water tray), to supress undesired things such as mold; this is working great and the seeds are sprouting fine.) For seeds I'm using "zesty sprouting mix" from NOW foods.

I've had this for years and it works great. It's a big step up from the jar method. Sprouts do not get jostled when rinsed, so they grow neatly in an upward direction. Water drains surprisingly well for perfectly horizontal trays. Just add water to the top 2x day, and empty the accumulation in the bottom as needed.

I rinse it in the morning and before bed. It quickly became a habit for me. Once I start it going, I will just add new sprouts to a tray as I empty it, and I'm never out of sprouts. If I'm wanting an extra amount of sprouts on hand, I'll add a double amount to the newly emptied tray, and then transfer half of it to the next one that becomes empty. This gives the sprouts a head start, and if they're transfered to their final tray within a few days, they'll still grow nicely in an upward direction. I find this is important with alfalfa sprouts, because you don't really want the foliage part to get flopped over once it gets going, or it retains too much water and might require a third rinse per day to guarantee freshness.

One note regarding the flow between levels: sometimes the unit requires tipping towards the little spigots to get the water flow started. One can also do this to drain the few drops of water that remains in the trays if one desires.

Three times the sprouts with the three tiers. Did experiment a bit and found that by soaking the seeds for 4-6 hours resulted in better sprouts (soak them in one of the bottom tray without the spigot and then transfer them over to the other clear trays with spigots).

This germinator works fine for sprouting anything as large or larger than lentils, but if you try sprouting mustard, alfalfa, etc they are gonna mold. The grooves in the trays just let them sit in water.

The siphon action is good, but make sure to have the siphons tilted 'downhill' after the water has gone into the collection tray, and you will be surprised how much more water comes out.

I purchased one of these sprouters to include in my provisions for a 4-month bicycle trip from Mexcio to Panama. At first I was a bit concerned about the ruggedness of what seemed like clear brittle plastic. Yet, only one of the trays became damaged in the end, enduring all kinds of stresses. And the system performed absolutely great! See the additional product pictures of mung bean sprouts.

Those who gave it lesser reviews either are not keeping it level, are watering too frequently, have it in a place that is too hot or cold, and/or have chaotic kitchen cleanup programs wherein they lose any of the the four identical "little parts". No doubt these people have other problems involving lost and misplaced items :) For cleaning the drainage grooves, simply use a toothbrush and some organic citrus based dish soap.

When treating your sprouting operation with the reverence of a garden... which it truly is... it works wonderfully. I now own three sets and use them daily to produce loads of sprouts including: kamut, buckwheat, winter wheat, mung, radish, fenugreek, broccoli, pea, sunflower. My advice is to think about what the seeds would like if you were planting them in the soil. Broccoli, radish, mustard and kale and even peas, for instance, like it a bit cool. Sunflowers and basil like it a bit warmer, but you do not want direct sunlight shining on your operation for long.

Do not use municipal water. Always use the purest water you can obtain, filtered in glass. Mineral water from a well that is free from agricultural and other run-offs is good too. Just give the sprouts the best you can offer and they will return the favor.

Happy sprouting!

For the (currently) best price, click on the right side: "7 used and new", then scroll down to "Hirt's Gardens". Currently best price (15.99 Dollar) and free shipping with Amazon Prime.

This works very well for larger seeds and beans. It comes with a good size sample of Alfalfa seeds.
My tips: Alfalfa seeds are too small for this sprouter, they would not have the chance to dry out enough because they would stay soaked in the grooves (see photo) and would be more than likely to get moldy. Use a sprouting jar for alfalfa seeds instead. Since sprouts should get air and do not get too much in this (or any?) sprouter, I spread the trays out over night and in the daytime when I need the room, I stack them again, leaving the top tray exposed. This is probably not necessary, though. We eat a lot of sprouts and I stack 2 of these sprouters on top of each other.
If the water does not drain, I press the white siphon down firmer, and then it drains. When all the water has drained, I tilt the trays a little and let more water drain out.
I am happy that I bought it and use it all the time.
