I gave this as a gift for my brother-in-law and he said the box was nice but they got about eight spices with about a tablespoon of spice in them. they tried the Raitta spice and were not wowed so I would have to say that I would not buy this box a second time. He felt we probably paid too much for what was actually in the box. I will try a different Spice box for comparison purposes and see how we fare next month. Sorry guys.
