Having read all the good reviews on this I'm quite annoyed to find out just how many extras I need to get that aren't included. Yes I have some of them lying around the house like a small sauce pan, we can't use it because it states not to use it for food again after. I figured from the other reviews that there were only a small amount of things not included but there is 2 pages of things you need to get before you can do the experiments. I've included a photo of those pages so other people can make the decision before they buy the set.

My son has been waiting to get his hands on a chemistry set for years and as soon as he turned 10, we got this one. It is fantastic and he loves it. There is a large selection of chemicals with a brilliant instruction book. All the apparatus is good quality glass and he feels like a real scientist at last! The only downside if this is one, is that other chemicals and supplies need to be purchased to complete all the experiments but as there are absolutely loads of experiments, there is plenty to go at before you will need extras (and a lot of these extras can be found in the home already).
I would definately recommend this item.

The only thing my daughter wanted for Christmas was a chemistry set so after much investigation we plumped for this one.

The experiments in the manual are well presented and let us explore an idea methodically and perform a few experiments around the subject - taking invisible inks from the lemon juice method exposed through heat to a starch based ink revealed by an iodine developing fluid we had to make first was fab, for instance.

The equipment isn't all that robust, but is much more realistic than in some kits (glass test tubes, beaker and stirrers which tolerate heating) and is easily complemented with odds and ends to extend the range of the experiments.

The only material we ran out of was copper sulphate and that was easily replaced for a few pounds from an online gardening supplier - I've read criticisms that there are a lot of extra materials required and while that's true, they are all items easily and cheaply accessed through a couple of visits to the pharmancy and a well known diy chain - and I guess the kit would be a LOT more expensive if they were in the box too.

Overall excellent product, complete and well supported with great documentation.

I got it for my 8 yo daughter - she likes sciency stuff a lot, and I thought a chemistry set would be ideal. I was suitably impressed when I opened the box - quite a few chemicals, plus basic glass and even kids' goggles. So far so good. Some consumables were not there - either common household items such as sodium chloride or higher volume stuff, but that's a good thing; you don't want to pay for a set full in fact of salt, sugar, citric acid and water, do you? The booklet also says a hundred experiments. Hours of fun, right?

Just to set the background... The daughter is in year 4 and is pulling year 6 performance. I am a scientist and work in a university; I've had a chemistry set as (an utterly geeky) kid, which was real' fun, although some substances in it were literally lethal. Anyway.

A hundred experiments listed in the booklet are - for the most part - trivial and repetitive. Take the solubility part - you basically stick everything you've got into a test tube one by one and see how well it does. It all culminates with trying to dissolve black pepper (really?). Works out as half a dozen separate 'experiments', which is how it goes up to a hundred.

We played with it for an hour or so, enjoyed the novelty of the process if not the results, did the fun stuff and I leafed through the booklet trying to find something to keep the kid's interest going. Nope. It went back into the box and so far I don't think it's gonna come back out soon.

I don't know what your kids are like, but in our case it has to bang (preferably), fizz, change colour or at least smell funny, otherwise it's not proper science. Trying condiments for solubility just doesn't do it.

Disappointed on several levels. First, the booklet. It's dreary, textbook-like and isn't much fun reading to your child.
Second, the miserly contents. You are provided with tiny quantities of chemicals, and unless you know where to obtain more supplies, you're going to run out after only a few experiments.
Third, the absence of essential items. You can't do most of the experiments unless you go shopping with a huge list of stuff which strangely aren't supplied in the box. Items not supplied include clay pot (?), methylated spirits, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salts), hydrogen peroxide (!), tumeric, small bottles (you need to buy lots of these), wooden ice cream or lolly sticks, a small artist's paint-brush, a small mirror, nails, a wooden clothes peg, vitamin C tablets, spray starch (?) food dye, distilled water, sodium carbonate decahydrate, sodium suplphate (Glauber's salt), garden lime, etc etc. They could have at least made an effort to include some of these.
My daughter was excited when she first opened the box, we did a few of the easier experiments, but since then we've not touched the thing because we haven't had time to obtain all the extra ingredients.
