Unique Amazon Products That Really Work
Amazon has some unique items to put it nicely. Sometimes bordering on weird. It is similar to that weird part of Youtube you somehow get to but didn’t know how you got there. Sometimes the unique items from Amazon are just that. Unique. They don’t really do anything or even do what they are said to do.
I would like to be what you call, a seasoned Amazon purchaser. I have been a prime member for over 5 years and an Amazon member since 2005. I have been around the block with them. I thought since I have made so many purchases, some good and some bad, that I would share some of my most unique purchases that ended up being some of our most treasured items. Be prepared, these are very random.
We live in a town that has horrible city water and after having our mini we just wanted to make sure we could have some good drinking water handy. We did lots of research of having somebody install a reverse osmosis system in the house and it was some serious change for somebody to install it. I found this on Amazon and my husband said that he could install it. And install it he did! You can just install it under your sink and connected it to the water piping. We put ours downstairs and ran a tube up through the floor under the sink. It was so easy and so fast. It really took no time at all and the water is pure perfection. Seriously if you are thinking of getting reverse osmosis system, get this and save yourself hundreds.
Yeah you heard me right. An automatic cat feeder, that actually works! Try going on Amazon and searching for automatic pet feeder and about 95% of the products have less than stellar reviews. If I was going to shell out a bit of money, I wanted to make sure it had great reviews. Enter this little Japanese beauty. Isn’t it just stupid cute!? And the best part is that it works. It can be programmed to feed up to 6 times a day and the cats cannot get into it to steal more food. We used it for a week on a trip and it worked flawlessly and we loved it so much that we still use it to this day to feed our beast. The batteries lasted almost a full year and it comes in other colors. If you are looking for a cat feeder I would highly recommend checking this one out.
This item I think has really grown in popularity over the years. I have bad environmental allergies and I thought this would be an interesting thing to try. Let’s just say, it doesn’t do anything bad. I don’t notice some amazing improvement but at the end of the day it is a pretty lamp and if a pretty lamp has healthy properties then why the hell not. We actually moved ours into our mini’s bedroom on her dresser as her nightlight. If it does do something then a mini immune system could certainly benefit from it.
I know that most people are terrified of pressure cookers. That meme where it shows the lid lodged in the ceiling and food over the entire kitchen comes to my mind. This was actually given as a gift from my parents one Christmas, but they bought theirs and ours on Amazon and I actually bought one for my MIL one year as well. It just is what it is. It is a pressure cooker. The only difference that can bring some peace of mind is that the lid inserts inside the pot so that it is physically impossible for the lid to shoot off if you are paranoid like that. And it makes some damn good food and fast. Corned beef in a pressure cooker? Yup. Makes cooked potatoes and carrots in 2 minutes. 2 MINUTES!
Do you need a bigger breastshield or more membranes for the pump? Look no further because Amazon has got your back girl. They have all
of the pieces needed to make using a breastpump tolerable. I got different breastshields than the ones you just buy in a kit. I have to buy more membranes for the proper suction and lots of supply bags. And my PSA that I put in every single time I even mention using a breastpump, do not wash the tubing. DO NOT WASH THE TUBING! Milk does not get into the tubing and it will make your pump mold when water gets in it. Ok..rant over.
This is one isn’t very unique but I think a lot of people overlook the helpfulness of a food scale. The on we got was like $10 and it just does its job. It does not say hello or do a jig. It just tells me how much things weigh, which I like. And it does not take up any space.
What are some of your favorite unique products that you got from Amazon?
