It came with the silvery looking flask, the inner canister(the one in my hands I am shaking), a couple of recipe & idea books too. I had to purchase the easiyo sachet powder mixes they come in all different flavours. I picked banana,cherry & apricot. They usually cost £2.99 a bag and make 1 kg of yogurt ( so basically about 8 shop size yogurts for £2.99) I usually buy Activia on special offer 8 for £2.99 so its not saving me any money cost wise. The best difference is that it has billions of live good bacteria. I purchased them in a shop called Julian Graves on special offer £1.99 each. The whole procedure is fool proof(it does need to be for me!). You fill your canister up with water not all the way to the top to start with. Tip your sachet in, the whole sachet and give it a really really good shake. When you have finished shaking top the water up to the maximum mark. Give it one more shake . Your kettle will have just finished boiling !. Pour the boiling water into the big silver looking flask up to the line which is just above this thing contained inside called a battle(i think). Then pop the canister in and push it down the boiling water will be round the outside of the canister. Pop the lid on. I did mine at 8 o clock in the evening & you leave it out. It does its magic & when I woke up at 6 o clock in the morning. I checked it and it was all nice and set. I then took the inside canister out and placed that in the fridge to firm up even further. You leave it out overnight as this helps it all activate. I had the most lovely tasting creamy yogurt & I spinkled it with crushed almonds. Now as I think this could be made cheap I went on the MSE website & there is a recipe for yogurt where they use milk, dried milk & a small active yogurt as a starter. I think the MSE way it worked out much more cheaply. Next time when I have used my sachets , I will try the cheaper method!. I gave my son some as he has just finished a course of antibiotics. I will experiment with it. !
