    30 Things From Amazon That Reviewers Truly Love

    Ceiling fan pulls so you can tell the light and the fan apart, platform Tevas I promise you are comfier than Birks, cloth resistance bands that are even better than the rubber kind, and other fan fave products that'll make you wonder how you ever got this far in life without them.

    1. A Le Creuset grill pan reviewers use to replace an outdoor grill. It's a splurge for a pan, but not when you consider that it'll last forever and it's cheaper than most decent indoor grills anyway.

    Amazon

    I have several pieces of Le Creuset cookware in my kitchen, all handed down to me by folks. My oldest is from the mid-1990s and the rest from about 15 years ago; they all still work great! It's worth the little extra cash to have stuff that lasts.

    I happen to own one of these in particular, and like a lot of people use it when I can't get to the barbecue. The grill marks and extra elevation from the ridges to keep food out of the grease are both awesome features. And it washes up real easy!

    Promising review: "Big improvement over a regular fry pan. I never understood the need for a grill pan. But I moved into an apartment and no longer have an outdoor grill. So I took the plunge and bought a very pretty Le Creuset grill pan. It works like a charm, big enough for two hamburgers or two pieces of fish. And the grill marks do make a difference. Adds flavor. All excess oil drips between the ridges. Glad I bought it." —Connie from Milwaukee

    Price: $99.95 (available in eight colors)

    2. A Hydroflask folks say is worth every penny because it keeps water cold for over a day and encourages them to stay hydrated.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm telling you straight-up, this was worth every penny I paid for it. It's to a point where I keep on the side of my bed with iced water. Speaking of that, it really works even better than advertised. I had ice in it for two hours and it didn't melt. It really keeps water cold for hours on end. Heck, I had water in it for one morning and by the evening, it still was the same as I drink it in the morning. It is also very well designed and looks like a premium product. A good mass and hefty, with nice handle on the lid...it's something you always wanna carry around with you everywhere you go. I highly recommend it. It is kinda pricey but it's well worth the money I paid for it." —Dickens Dumont

    Price: $29.95+ (available in nine sizes and 15 colors)

    3. A dog ball that bounces just like you want it to, floats, and is pretty much indestructible, to give your darling doggo a good workout. Reviewers love how they are pretty much chew-proof last just about forever.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Well, this is the ONLY toy that our dog LOVES. The ChuckIt Ultra is her obsession. She has them strategically hidden around the house for quick/easy access, she follows us around with one, and she sometimes even brings one to bed with her. Squeaky toys are FINE in a pinch, but really, nothing in her world compares with this ball. She is a 50-pound springer spaniel and has only managed to crack one of these balls in two years of owning them, and she chews on them almost like a pacifier (she'll just sit there and chomp on it). She prefers the medium size, but we have a large size Ultra and she enjoys that too. They are easy to throw, they bounce great, they FLOAT, they are super easy to wash off (that alone is worth the five stars for anyone out there who has tried to wash off a tennis ball) and they are really durable." —P. Hanson

    Price:  $6.76 for two

    4. A brimless hat, which'll win you tons of compliments, and I would know: I wear mine almost everyday! Folks like it as a warm weather alternative to a beanie, but IMHO it's got a great look all its own. You might find yourself buying several.

    A reviewer wears the hat in red
    amazon.com

    I wear hats a lot right now because my hair's falling out after breaking my arm a few months ago and my scalp kept getting burned (I'm fine and it will grow back). My partner originally had one of these that I appropriated before buying three of my own. They're fun and a little different, and perfect for when you want to head out in a hurry, undone hair/don't care style. They're light and not hot at all, except insofar as they're also fly, oh-so fine, and fabulous.

    Promising review: "This is a really good look. I get nothing but compliments when I wear it and love general shock of a hat without the hat part. I wear beanies a lot and this is a good middle piece for when it's way to hot to wear a beanie or for doing something a little nicer/classier." —Drippp

    Price: $13.99+ (available in 39 colors)

    5. An air purifier that's the best you can get under $100 and my significant other swears by. They're asthmatic and have multiple chemical sensitivity, and this thing clears the air real quick so they can always breathe easy.

    amazon.com

    The pic on the left is after five months of use!

    Promising review: "I’ve owned three air purifiers in my lifetime: a Winix, a Honeywell, and this Levoit Core 300. Despite having the lowest listed power of the three and being half as expensive, this Levoit is by far the most effective of the three. I live in an house that was built in the 1960s and dust is a big problem. Every 24 hours, every tabletop is covered in a thin layer of dust, even though the windows and door are closed almost all day and night. This is the first air purifier that actually makes a marked difference in terms of dealing with the dust that plagues me so. Unlike my previous two purifiers, I can actually see the dust being sucked in through the device and into the filter, which is very satisfying. With the other two purifiers, I just sort of assumed they were helping even though they didn’t seem to be taking in any dust particles. On top of being extremely effective, this air purifier is far more compact and attractive than any other I’ve owned. It’s modern-looking and could fit in with just about any decor and is so lightweight and compact that I have it on my nightstand. I keep it on the highest of three settings and it’s relatively quiet. I find the white noise at night to be relaxing and it actually blocks out noises that would otherwise wake me up. I’ll never buy an air purifier from another company, and you shouldn’t either." —James

    Price: $99.99 (available in two colors)

    6. A box of earth-friendly dishwasher tablets, which come in a self-dissolving wrapper (less waste!), are made without harsh cleansers, and are 100% fragrance- and gluten-free.

    the tablets
    Amazon

    I've got a major-league gluten issue. And anything that goes onto your dishes is gonna get into your mouth, even as careful as you can be. Dish soap and dishwasher detergent are major irritants a lot of folks don't realize and it makes a world of difference when you start using soap that's truly gluten-free. I use these, they clean great, and they don't make me sick!

    Promising review: "I'm really trying to use less chemicals in my home and thankfully, Seventh Generation made the transition super easy. They dissolve great in my dishwasher and clean my dishes well too. I trust this brand 100% and will not use any other dishwashing tabs." —L Mathewson

    Price:  $22.60 or $21.47 with Subscribe & Save (available in two versions and with laundry detergent)

    7. A pair of Teva platform sandals that are worth all the hype. I own them and walk for miles no problem (thanks, backstrap!). I think they're way comfier than Birkenstocks or the new sandals Doc Martens has come out with. Also, these come in a ton of fun weaves and the platform Y2K aesthetic has just the right vibe for freedom summer 2021.

    A reviewer wears the sandals in black and white stripes
    amazon.com

    Birkenstocks had their chance. Try something new this summer! These are super popular in NYC right now with folks of all genders.

    Mine have unicorns on them, because I'm 33 going on 13.

    Promising review: "You need these sandals in your life yesterday. They are so comfortable, so supportive, so easy to walk in. The straps support your entire foot and ankle so your foot doesn’t slide around at all. The base is spongy but firm so you get support with a little spring. For size reference I wear a 7.5-8.5 depending on style. I of course bought a size 8 and they fit perfectly. Within three minutes of putting these on I texted pretty much everyone I know and told them to buy these because that’s how obsessed I am already. You won’t regret this purchase!" —Mschierer

    Price: $46.96+ (available in women's sizes 5-12 and 19 colors)

    8. A pair of ceiling fan pull-chains to show which is for the light and which is for the fan, because it's so confusing without them.

    The product installed on a ceiling fan, one with a fan shaped pull and one with a lightbulb shape
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the definition of product you didn't know you needed because you didn't know it existed. I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. Want the light off? Oh no...now the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? Eek...now you're in the dark. They're a much better quality than I expected. They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor (when you notice them; most of the time, who even things about a ceiling fan pull chain?). As an added bonus, my infant daughter loves staring at them while I change her diaper or jammies. I tap them to make the chains swing, and it's instant fascination, which helps make my job easier!" —LHD

    Price: $6.59+ (available short or long)

    9. A gardening strap that uses Velcro to keep your plants up. It's strong enough to do the job but gentle enough not to hurt your leaf babies.

    The strap in use
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I use this on so many of my plants-indoors AND out. Outside in spring, this holds my heavy irises blooms off the ground when the buds are too heavy for the stems to hold up. After blooming, it holds all the leaves back so nearby plants can get some sun. It holds my heavy monstera leaves up and the aerial roots close to the moss pole. When you give pothos vines something to climb up, the leaves will grow bigger and faster and this works so great for that purpose. Best of all it somewhat blends in and it’s gentle on stems and aerial roots. I will continue to buy this every time I run out. Absolutely recommended!" —Christina Johnson

    Price: $5.99+ (available in two versions and seven lengths)

    10. A set of fabric workout bands to provide more resistance than the rubber kind.

    A reviewer uses a gray band
    amazon.com

    The set comes with three different strength cotton bands with latex grips, a carrying pouch, and an instructional guide.

    Promising review: "These are some tough workout bands. They feel much stronger than the rubber resistance bands that I’m used to. Since these are made out of cloth, they feel a lot better when they are rubbing against my skin when I use them. The rubber bands that I used to use always felt a little abrasive on my skin. I use these bands mainly to work on my quads and hamstrings at the gym. They are a supplement to my workout routine. This set of bands also comes with a bag and it's so portable, I feel like I can carry it in my pockets if I had to." —Kevin

    Price: $10.75+ (available in three colors)

    11. An OXO drain protector for your tub or kitchen to keep rapid-clogging ickies like hair and food scraps out of your precarious pipes.

    The product with dog hair it saved from the drain
    amazon.com

    Some dear friends in an old house in Asheville use this to keep their delicate plumbing clog-free, and it really works!

    Promising review: "This has been my saving grace!! No longer do I have to routinely pull 3-foot-long strands of old goopy hair up out of my drain. Catches everything. Must have for pop-up drains! I've updated my review to include a pic of all the hair from my German shepherd that did NOT go down the drain after her bath thanks to this product!" —Chels

    Price: $9.98

    12. A set of Corelle chip-resistant dinnerware that might be the last dishes you'll ever buy because they're almost unbreakable. Even when you do need to replace them, it's no biggie because they're remarkably affordable. Folks like these more than other Corelle sets because of the pretty patterns — no need to compromise on appearance versus function here!

    The dishes
    amazon.com

    My darling family has been using Corelle glass dinnerware since they were introduced 50 years ago. Sorry, let me clarify: we've actually been using the same set for 50 years, because through three generations of users, not one has broken! I bought some for my place a few years ago and they've held up really well.

    These are made out a tempered glass product consisting of two types of glass, laminated into three layers. Please note, these aren't actually unbreakable, but they are really durable. And yes, they're dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I love Corelle dishes and have many pieces that I grew up with as a child and have been kicking around for several decades. My kids call them the unbreakable dishes (though, clearly they ARE breakable, just less fragile than other dishes). I kept buying other sets of dishes that are expensive, though, and would chip and crack and irritate me because they need to be replaced so often. Then, while browsing I found a new pattern in these I liked, and I loved it immediately. Now, I have the perfect marriage of chip- and crack-resistant, lightweight dishes that are ALSO beautiful! There is much rejoicing in my household." —JC Wright

    Price: $23.99+ (available in 10 packages and nine patterns)

    13. An boxed assortment of nuts, bolts, washers, and screws with every one you could ever need.

    The assortment in its box
    amazon.com

    A wonderful alternative to a box of chocolate for your butch friends.

    Promising review: "Well, it turns out all those other reviewers were right on track! This is actually an amazing deal for the price. To me it seems weird to focus on the containers, but quite frankly they are really nice. They have a nice snug fitting hinged lid. As others before me have stated, there is no worry about items in the compartments get mixed up. I also really like the way they trays attach and stack on one another. It's snug enough to comfortably carry it as a combined unit without worrying that it's going to fall apart. Enough about the containers though... the hardware assortment itself is great. It's a wonderful selection of screws, nuts, bolts, and washers. I get rather cranky when mid-project I find I need to run to the store to purchase one of the aforementioned items. I finally decided to seek out of bulk assortment and eliminate the need to constantly run out to purchase one or two here and there. The included sizes seem to cover pretty much anything I would need and the quality is spot-on. I am super happy with my purchase and have no hesitation in recommending this to others." —Mary D

    Price: $39.99

    14. A pair of the super-popular Adidas NMD_R1 running shoes reviewers say are comfy-as-heck and that's probably why I see them on everybody lately.

    The shoes in white and orange
    amazon.com

    I look at folks' shoes because it's my job, and living in Brooklyn pretty much everyone has excellent taste in footwear so I'm always curious what people are wearing. I see these more than any other shoe out there (yes, even more than AF1's), dozens of times a day. Queer kids, moms running errands, sneaker freaks, doctors and nurses, off-duty celebrities, and of course folks working out.

    Promising review: "I like the NMD_R1 by Adidas so much so that I have bought a total of five for the time being. They are just overall comfortable, stylish, and attention-grabbing." —Seng

    Price:  $75.29+ (available in men's sizes 3.5-14 and 27 colors)

    15. A shower head people rave about for a luxurious bathing experience that's also super versatile. It doesn't look like a dual-head fixture, but the middle part separates from the dock so you can use it with the hose. Pretty nifty, IMHO.

    The shower head installed
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this shower head! We had it in our old house and when we moved I insisted we replace all the shower heads with this one. The other ones were were stiff and just plain awful. I have three little ones so I needed a good quality shower head that has the removable sprayer to wash their hair. The hose is super flexible and long so there is no trouble moving around. I also love the spray setting so it can be a soft flow or a strong flow. Do NOT hesitate on buying this shower head! It is worth the money for sure! Oh, and it was SO easy to install." —Bethany

    Price: $87.75+ (available in two colors)

    16. A slicker brush reviewers compare favorably to the Furminator, because it works well and is way easier to clean.

    The brush with pads of hair removed
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a veterinarian, so I know way too much about different brushes and grooming implements. I have always had a love-hate relationship with slicker brushes...love because they're effective and comfortable, and HATE because they are the absolute biggest pain in the butt to clean, especially without damaging the thin bristles, or bending them in such a way that they poke the animal uncomfortably. Now, I have a long-haired senior cat who has twice had to go under anesthesia for removal of massive hairballs. The last time, he received a a prescription for a haircut from his specialist. So we have been on an intensive hair management program, but he hates being brushed. So I'm constantly going through various brushes and combs. My go-to is the Furminator, but my main gripes with it are that it is uncomfortable for the cat (pulls his skin excessively at times) and its blades, even on the long-hair version, fill up with nearly every swipe. This brush is 10 times more comfortable for my cat, while still pulling a decent amount of shed hair. Cleaning it is AMAZING, just press the button and pull the pad of hair off, and it doesn't fill up until after nearly a full session of brushing. It is not taking off as much hair as the Furminator, but the fact that he doesn't get instantly annoyed and thus I can brush for longer and create a more positive experience for him is important." —The Horse Doc

    Price: $18.99

    17. A fan-fave swimsuit with a deep V and long straps so you can wear it however you want.

    Yep, that's me in the black suit on a rooftop, stretchmarks and all!
    Samantha Jacobson

    I have one for when I leave NYC and folks frown on me being "topless" at the beach (looking at you, Long Beach PD). It fits great, and the extra coverage is nice. A lot of reviewers talk about the support; I wear a 32DD, removed the cups, and am fine with how it holds my chest in. YMMV, ofc.

    And on the off chance this matters to you: although I don't usually go for it, when I do, it holds a tuck better than any other suit I've owned, which is pretty impressive because you'd expect cheap fabric on a suit at this price range and they didn't skimp on quality one bit.

    Promising review: "Love this suit. I have a really long torso so I’m always worried about one piece swimsuits, but this fit really well. There’s not a lot of support but there are cups/pads that did the job for my smaller chest. Definitely cheeky, but that’s what I was looking for. So strappy and cute, definitely felt secure in it once I played around with the straps a bit. Fit my needs for my last holiday, can’t wait to get back in it soon!" —Bri

    Price: $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 20 colors)

    18. A set of pet nail clippers that are sharp enough to trim with ease, and come with features reviewers say really come in handy.

    A reviewer holds the clippers
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am really excited about all the features on these puppy nail clippers! It has a locking mechanism to prevent accidents, and also has a special metal guard on the back side to keep you from clipping the nails too far. I didn't even notice it at first, but there is a built-in nail file that slides conveniently into the handle! These are sharp enough to get the job done right on the first try." —Cara

    Price: $15.95

    19. A Squatty Potty so you can do your business in a more natural, ergonomic position. It lifts your feet and rotates your back to mimic a squat, thus the name!

    A model uses the product
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This little stool has revolutionized my bathroom habits. As somebody who has been heavily restrained by time, who has lost countless hours toiling to no avail on the porcelain throne, this tool has proven invaluable. It is comfortable! My body feels RIGHT when I use this stool to pass my stool. No cramping, no unnecessary pushing, none of my usual struggles. It is effective! I had previously been utilizing a little box as a makeshift Squatty Potty; I don't know exactly what it is about the actual thing in comparison to other stools/the box I was using, but it is definitely designed precisely for bowel relief. The slant, the height, everything. It is affordable! This small price is nothing in comparison to the money I will likely spend in the future on hemorrhoid treatment. Will it cure my IBD? Of course not, but it DOES make it easier to live with, and that in itself is worth so much to me."  —Afton

    Price: $16.49

    20. A pair of well-balanced dumbbells available in the color-coded weight of your choice, with a neoprene outer coating that doesn't smell (finally!).

    Four-pound weights in blue
    amazon.com

    I have some little ones I'm using for PT and have absolutely no complaints, which if you've comparison shopped hand weights you know is pretty remarkable. Reviewers always something wrong with the others, from the smell, to the balance being off, to the coating coming off... but not with these! Perfect, right out of the box.

    Promising review: "Bought for my partner to use. I'm a coach and have trained two world champions and an Olympic trials finalist. These little things are very good for home fitness. The grip feels amazingly comfortable. Color is nice. Balance is perfect." —Eluthy

    Price: $9.89+ (available in one- to ten-pound sets in ten colors)

    21. A set of oven-safe silicone cooking tools nothing will stick to and that are actually dishwasher and oven-safe. Reviewers really love them because they perform as advertised, clean easily, and the set is waaaay cheaper than trying to buy each thing individually.

    The tools in multicolor
    amazon.com

    The set includes a brush, large and small spatulas, large and small spoonulas, three spreaders, a whisk, tongs and a juicer. They've got steel inside for extra stiffness and are dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I like them. They do the job. Nothing sticks to them. I do not put them in the dishwasher because they are so easy to clean with a little dish soap. Sturdy enough to blend cake mix by hand. l like the two sizes for spreading frosting. Heat not a problem. I have used one to 425 degrees Fahrenheit without a problem. And I have a nonstick ceramic appliance and use the spatula to lift the food for removal so as not to scratch the surface. They have a nice weight and feel. What more can I say. I priced out if I were to buy all these Items at the mart with the blue letters and this was a better deal. Good price and works as advertised. So far five stars!!" —FJM eastcoaster

    Price: $13.99+ (available in five colors)

    22. A weighted jump rope set to give your whole body a workout. Reviewers say it's worth the price because that they don't tangle, ever, and last for years.

    The rope set
    amazon.com

    It comes with handles and two ropes, a quarter-pound and a half-pounder for a more intense workout. There's also an app you can download for workout inspo.

    Promising review: "I must say I was skeptical spending this much for a jump rope but they are really nice ropes. The heavier one (white) is a killer on your arms. It really gives you a workout! The one thing that sold me on these ropes and why I decided to keep them is that they do not tangle. I own multiple jump ropes and they all tangle up on themselves especially when try to do tricks. These do not tangle ever." —JenniferKChill

    Price: $99 (available in sizes S-XL)

    23. A pair of Adidas shorts, because so many people just love them for the perfect fit. They're available in above-the-knee and below-the-knee lengths, for whatever's your thing.

    Price: $15+ (available in men's sizes S-5XL regular and S-4XL tall and long, and in nine colors)

    24. A workout bench for stepping, resistance work, HIIT, and storing your gear when you're not using it. You can use it flat, inclined, or raise the bench up for even more versatility.

    images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com

    Promising review: "It is the perfect size for so many exercises. We both use it to lift weights and I also use it for step aerobics. For stepping, the step is just the right length for my routines and the highest position is the perfect height. I was a bit concerned that, since it was longer than most fitness steps, the middle would be a bit weaker, but not at all. I would have paid the initial price for this item without even thinking about it as it is worth every penny. Very solid piece of equipment!" —Marisol

    Price: $131.04

    25. A poop scoop and clip-on rake with a swiveling basket for easy storage that's also simple to line with plastic grocery bags. Catch the poop, tie off your bag, and throw it away. It's a lot easier and cleaner to use than the tray kind, for sure.

    the scooper
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This has a great feature — you can use those plastic store bags to put onto swivel bucket. The bucket (the part you scoop into) acts like a dustpan and then turns upward for carrying. It also has hooks so the bag stays in place. Plastic seems sturdy so far and the ability to clip them together for storage is great." —Suzn

    Price: $18.49

    26. A portable bedside crib reviewers rave over for its sturdy construction and being tall enough even for folks who have those super-thick mattresses.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spent WEEKS searching for a bedside sleeper tall enough for our bed that was also a good value. I finally got this in the mail today and and I'm so happy with it. So quick and easy to put up and take down, no tools required. I love that it comes with safety straps to tether to the bed and locking wheels so it won't accidentally roll off when you're using it with the side folded down. It even comes with a carry tote, which will keep it clean for storage. Overall it feels really sturdy and I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a bedside sleeper." —Caitlyn

    Price: $173.98

    27. A hole-filling compound to get your place move-out ready in a jiff, almost no effort required. It comes in a tube which, yes, is filled with the paste — but it also has a built-in putty knife and sanding pad.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I normally don’t write reviews for products, but this one was amazing! I’m in the process of moving out of my apartment (is there anything worse?) and I needed to fill a few holes I made with wall anchors. I have no handy experience but this product was so easy to use. I agree with other reviewers that you definitely should pick up real sandpaper if you want your walls to be flawless but I really only gave it 70% effort and the results were pretty good (my apartment is super-old). If you bother to paint over (I didn’t) it’s definitely good as new. A renter's dream." —Tina Liu

    Price: $5.98

    28. A set of ceramic-coated knives sure to add a ~sharp~ pop of color to your kitchen and do their job oh-so well.

    The knives in a drawer
    amazon.com

    The set includes an 8-inch chef knife, a slicing knife, a serrated bread knife, a 7-inch Santoku knife, a 6.5-inch utility knife, and a 3.5-inch paring knife.

    They're dishwasher-safe and come with matching covers so you can toss 'em in the drawer without worrying about nicks, dulling, or your precious fingers. 

    I've actually had a few sets like this over the years, which I only replaced because I moved and couldn't take them with me, not because I wanted to get rid of them or they wore out. The quality's been rock-solid every time. 

    IMHO, you'll spend 10 times as much for a similar set of pro knives that won't even do the job as well. 

    Promising review: "The look, the colors, and wow, the blades! Be careful and do not allow children to use these knives on any level. They are like razors — but excellent in the kitchen. The colors are great for glancing and finding exactly the knife you need for a specific job. They clean easily and seem to be keeping their edges. Depending on the occasion, they can make a useful gift for any aspiring Top Chef." —Darsen

    Price: $24.99+ (available as a single set or in a two-set multipack)

    29. An household electricity monitoring system that connects to an app that'll let you pinpoint what made your bill go up and eliminate the problem precisely.

    Promising review: "I got an electric bill that had jumped up $40 from the month before. This did not make sense to me so I decided to look for an electric monitoring system again. This time found the Gen 2 Emporia Vue. It was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't need complicated device-specific energy usage identification, I just wanted to monitor my electric usage at the circuit level. Since most big electricity consumers in the house, such as the HVAC system, the humidifier, the range, fridge, washer, dryer, and all are on dedicated circuits, why would I need device-level identification? It took less than an hour to install all 16 sensors. Our 15-year-old son often cooks pizzas in the oven at night and then forgets to turn the oven off. It is on all night long. The Vue will send him a notification if the oven is on for longer than two hours. The duration is settable." —evidence-based bias

    30. A box of gravy-style wet cat food even finicky felines lap right up. It's way cheaper on Amazon than at your local brick and mortar, and they'll save you the trouble of lugging it home.

    It's just a picture of a white cat with the box of food but to be honest it looks like the cat is trying to will the person taking the pic to stop and just feed me already

    Promising review: "My cats turn their noses up at almost everything except Fancy Feast gravy canned food. The gravy chicken is their favorite. The box was a great bargain, wayyyyy cheaper than buying per can at the grocery store. I will never buy cans at the store again! Because getting it this way is such a fantastic value, plus you don't have to schlep it out of the car — it comes right to you!! How can you beat that?" —Analog
