Membership costs for "FREE" gifts which all come from China entitle "member" to nothing more than a small, thin monthly "cooking" magazine that advertises cooking utinsils and cooking products (nothing more than advertisements they get paid for and for which I am paying too), very few recipes. It also entitles you to get their offers for overpriced cooking junk (all made in China). Membership cannot be canceled. The free products were junk all made in China. One was received broken and when I wrote to them about it, I received NO response EVER! Membership dues were $301. It's a total ripoff. Don't fall for it! Nothing I received was worth more than $5, and I would NEVER purchase anything for even that price. It is all junk!
