How does the enchanted chest work in the arch mage's room?

I cannot for the life of me get it to work consistently.

I should clarify. I know what it's supposed to do. You put it one of an ingredient and wait 24 hours, and it adds 10 of that ingredient. But I've done this with varying amounts and I almost always end up with the same amount afterward, whether it's one, two, six, ten, twenty, whatever. I got it to work once by putting in six of some mushroom, but then a repeat effort of that was fruitless (fungiless :d). I guess it's not worth trying to have integrity and use this thing, I'll just dupe and save myself the time and frustration.

Not all ingredients can be duplicated with the chest, and you can only use it every week or so. Where you should search first for all oblivion gameplay questions...
