As the biggest ecommerce platform of all time, Amazon is the place to go when you want to buy anything and everything. Better yet, since Amazon has millions of customers, the website includes a thorough review section where customers share their opinion on all types of products. Of course, this is excellent to make an informed purchase. But did you know that the Amazon reviews section hides some of the most surprising and hilarious reviews? From comments that go deep into customers’ personal lives to outright funny reviews, here’s a compilation of the best Amazon reviews of 2023.
Bic for Her
Bic’s marketing team really did a whoopsie when they decided to brand a pen just for women. Although the product is no longer available to purchase (we wonder why), the hilarious comments that both women and men left on Amazon are still there for you to enjoy. From a customer saying that her uterus grew back after using this magic pen to another complaining that she can’t write until the company produces ‘for her’ paper, the review section for this failed product is pure gold. Even the FAQ section is hilarious, with people asking whether it’s safe for their husbands to use the pens.
Wenger 16999 Swiss Army Knife
When it comes to Swiss Army knives, there are none that offer more tools than the Wenger 16999. The knife weighs six pounds and comes with more than 140 functions, one of them being the opportunity to make a joke of it. Most of the reviews you’ll find on the Wenger 16999 are people joking about what the Army knife comes with or how good it is. The tone is set with the top reviewer stating that the knife ordered itself to their home. Comments that the product opened its own package and fixed things by itself are common, and there's even a woman who states that she divorced her husband after discovering how much he spent on the knife. However, since the knife represented the husband in court, she lost the divorce settlement.
How To Avoid Huge Ships by John W. Trimmer
What would you expect when Amazon sells a 1993 book titled How To Avoid Huge Ships? It’s not surprising that the reviews section is overflowing with customers saying how much the book helped them put their life together and educate their kids. Of course, all books are open to criticism, and a huge ship itself left a less flattering comment explaining that the book made it even harder for them to make friends. Things get even better when you realize the book got a second edition, which a reviewer highly recommends getting to make sure you aren’t run over by a huge ship.
Banana Slicer by Hutzler
Have you ever thought to yourself that there has to be an easier way to slice bananas? That’s why the banana slicer was invented. Although we can see how this product can be helpful to people who cut bananas in bulk, the reviews are what we like the most. There’s a little bit of everything and lots of comments that are guaranteed to make you giggle. Some people were heartbroken when they found out that their bananas curved the wrong way, while others weren't able to use the banana slicer due to the lack of an instructions manual. One reviewer even said that they were fired because they spent all day slicing bananas!
Giant Lobster Claws
Funny products like the giant lobster claws are guaranteed to get some of the best reviews you’ll ever read. From reviewers saying that they’ve been prowling their neighborhood by night wearing the claws to others thanking the company for creating a product that helped them get closer to their lobster pets, each comment offers a funny joke that will make you laugh.
Amazon is always full of surprises. There are so many entertaining reviews to go through that there’s even a subreddit dedicated to it. So, next time you go on a shopping spree, don’t forget to check the reviews section.
