I was captivated by an infomercial several years ago about a product called Le Presse. The demonstrations made chopping things up so easy and quick, I came close to buying one. Then I learned that it was $75 ($59 plus $14.95 shipping) and decided it wasn’t worth that much.
Recently I was thinking about how nice it would be to have one and wondered if I should buy it. I searched for information online to learn of others’ experiences with it and found two reviews on Epinions. The first said it was cheaply made and the second said it breaks easily after using it.
Even though there were only two reviews, both of them said pretty much the same thing and they convinced me not to get it. Thanks to online review sites and reviewers, I was able to read its poor quality and write about that experience instead of buying one and learning for myself of its poor quality and writing about that unpleasant experience.
I’d like to extend a sincere thank you to anyone who has ever posted a review of a product online. Consumers everywhere are benefited from your efforts.
