Rated 1 out of 5¬†by Michael66 Rapid set that's for sure
Having not used this product before and carefully following instruction regarding mixing and quantity of water, I found it a nightmare. I mixed up half first and found that it set so rapidly that I couldn't place the tiles fast enough. The second half was mixed with a bit more water but still set too quickly, the working time was not long enough for me to achieve a good result. Yes it was summer and this may have worked better for me in winter with the heating turned off. I will never use this product again.

I'm a fairly experienced tiler having done a wet room and kitchen/diner/hallway floor before to a high standard with no problems using mapei products.
I was given this by an assistant when I bought some tiles for my porch of 1.2m2.
I mixed it up, with precisely 1 litre in a clean bucket and was laying it down in under 2 mins being apprehensive about the "turbo set". I didn't even finish laying it, it went off at such a rate that i just scraped up what I put down and aborted the job. It was solid in under 10 mins after I mixed it.
Not a chance you have 15 mins working time, what I had was unusable even for the best of the best. Bad batch perhaps?
Its certainly not a product which I think should be picked out by an assistant.
