They were quite excited that it came with five years of refills, too, as they mentioned that spices are so expensive now. Also, they loved that it had so many different spices with which they can experiment as they broaden their cooking skills. It came with jars wrapped individually and well protected and they have thanked me several times for the great gift and recommended it as a gift to others. Pros: Great idea on the refills, as it adds value to the gift. Lots of spices. Attractive and easy to use. Cons: I haven't heard a word against it from the recipients." —Ellen
