The vast majority of products I have received for review have been at least passable. There have been a few stinkers though. I once got a battery operated can opener. While I was trying it out, it died mid way through a can. This wouldn’t have been so bad, but I was trying to open a can of tuna. So trying to wrestle the device off the can, I got tuna juice all over me, and my kitchen. I ended up getting so frustrated that I threw the can (with the opener still attached) in the trash… and then I had to take a shower.
Because of this experience, I will never again try another battery operated can opener. I will stick with my OXO Smooth Open can opener, which I’ve had for years.

I just received another extraordinarily disappointing product. It was a water bottle which seemed promising. Stainless steel, double walled and a good size to boot. What could go wrong? The printing on the outside of the bottle rubbed off all over my hands, and smeared around the bottle. Had I actually paid the $17.99 retail for the bottle, I think I would have been really hot under the collar. Needless to say, my review will not be too glowing.
