Amazing product but be careful of the reseller.
on 2 February 2018
I had ordered this kit for my son and both of us loved it. The thought that went into the product was amazing and it was a fully planned chemical kit. Around 7 years back I remember talking to a NCERT professor about this idea and how he could enable chemistry labs in rural schools. This was the pretty much the same idea but completely packaged with a lot of thought given to it. Even the booklet is well informing and helps understand not only the experiments but also the concepts. I would rate it close to any of the education toys I have brought from US at almost one-fifth the price. Kudos to Kutuhal on developing this product.
Now for the bad part and why this product is getting a 4. I would have given it a much lower rating had it not been such a wonderful product in the first place. I loved it so much that I ordered another 2 pieces to give as gifts. To start with out of the 2 qty, I only received 1 and had to talk to the Amazon to refund for it. It just happened that my son opened the new box to make sure it had all the parts but to our surprise this was one completely used. The chemical was spilled, the gloves used, the test tubes broken, the litmus paper not available. the burner showing flames. It seemed clearly that this was a returned piece which the seller had redirected. While some of the blame also falls on the customer who used the product and returned it after using it, I think the seller should also ensure that the quality of product is meeting the standard.
If this was my first kit, I would have assumed that the product was of this very quality. So in future, I would suggest that please order the product directly from Kutuhal and not a reseller even if there is a small saving of Rs. 40-50. Trust me the product will pay for itself in the long term for the interest it creates in the learners mind.
