What are the worst products out there, according to Amazon.com reviews? I’m currently quite entertained by this particular review of the CatGenie automatic litterbox, and then have continued to read in horror the long list of one- and two-star reviews for this product. :eek: (The phrase “poop blender/crockpot” was used in one of the reviews, in case that wasn’t obvious.)
Basically, if it works for you, it’s great, but if it doesn’t, you end up with (according to many, many reviews) a device that liquifies all of your cat’s waste, collects it in a bowl which then clogs and/or overflows, and which needs to be manually emptied and cleaned. “Normal” maintenance on this device apparently requires frequently disassembling and cleaning the whole unit. Additionally, it has a drying feature which most people describe as filling their house with the odor of “baking poo” which is apparently one of the more horrendous smells possible.
So what we have here is a product designed to free you of the yucky task of scooping your litterbox, and the product solves this by creating what sounds to me like a Brazil-esque nightmare of yuckiness as an alternative. Niiiiiice. Yeah that’s a product I won’t be buying.*
So what products have you found on Amazon that have reviews that leave you bug-eyed in horror?
*not that I was ever considering it–I didn’t come across the review because I was considering the product.
