I bought one on Amazon for only $15.12 (with free shipping) and it was delivered the next day! I already had a 1/4 cup of wheat seeds that I soaked the night before, so I placed 1/2 of the wheat seeds (1/8 cup) into each of two trays. I then put one tablespoon of alfalfa seeds in a cup to soak. Later that evening I put the soaked alfalfa in the Seed Sprouter in the third tray. I left one of the trays empty so I could stagger my sprouts. I did this on Tuesday.
On Thursday (2 days later) here is what I have! I have never seen growth like this before.
Look at these wheat sprouts.

I could go feed them to my chickens right now, but I will wait until tomorrow. I wont be able to leave them in the Sprouter any longer though because they are so tall already. This thing is Amazing!
Here is my alfalfa after less than 2 full days.

This Seed Sprouter is by far the best method I have found for sprouting seed super fast and super easy! You just put your soaked seeds in each tray, stack them up with the reservoir tray on the bottom, then pour in 2 cups of fresh water 2-3 times a day. The water slowly drains from the top tray down to the one below, until it all ends up in the bottom tray. Before you add water the next time, you simply empty the bottom tray, then rotate the bottom tray to the top position, and pour your water into the top tray. Once the water has run all the way to the bottom reservoir tray you just lay the lid on top (this keeps the top tray from drying out), but don't seal the lid. (You only seal the top lid if you are going to store the trays.) When they have grown to your desired size you can store them in the refrigerator to stop the growing process.
I didn't pre-soak in bleach water and I didn't get any mold either. You don't sit the Seed Sprouter in direct sunlight...these seeds sprouted sitting on my kitchen counter with only regular room lighting and the A/C kept the room about 72-75 degrees the whole time (according to the manufacturer 70 degrees is the ideal growing temperature). I am totally impressed with this product. I'm ordering a second set of trays right now!
