Next time you order something from Amazon, make sure you read the complete product description. Or at least the full product name. Else you might end up buying something completely unexpected and unnecessary. And if you’re like Maddox, you’ll end up leaving a hysterical review. Which, honestly, we don’t really mind!
An Amazon Accident
Maddox needed a grinder strictly for her spices. She was ready to grind some rosemary and cook a delicious dinner. But when the grinder arrived from Amazon and she put it to use, let’s just say she wasn’t amused. And to be fair, we’ve all been there. We’ve all ordered something from Amazon which turned out to be not what we thought it would be at all.
Metro reports that Maddox wasn’t very pleased with the grinder. She left a review on the product titled “Ohuhu Tobacco Grinders Herb Grinder /Weed Grinder/ Plant Grinder / Pollen Collector/ 4 Pieces 2.38″ Heavy Duty Zinc Alloy, Magnetic Top, Elegant Black”.
The product description reads: ‘This Ohuhu® Herb Grinder is a small, but powerful device with sharp teeth that you can use to grind up herbs, tobacco, marijuana, and other small plant materials.’
Maddox’s Amazon Review
Maddox’s review has been removed from Amazon. But not before Metro captured a screenshot. It’s titled: “Really wish they wouldn’t call these spice grinders.”
And the full review goes: “The rosemary just fell right through. I’m sure it works well for nugs but I actually need a spice grinder and it’s impossible to find now thanks to the weed industry. I wish they would call them something else so I don’t have to sort through 89679376 products like this to find an actual spice grinder.”
So basically, the weed industry is ruining Maddox’s cooking dreams. And they should call grinders something else. Or maybe next time, read the full product title before buying on Amazon!
Not The First Accident On Amazon
Well, if it’s any solace to Maddox, some other customers have messed up too. She isn’t the only one! Another review on Amazon goes like this:
“So this is not good for any cooking quantity of spices if you ask me.., I put a tablespoon of thyme in it and ground and shook and ground and shook.., etc.., and some came out a fine powder, other came out near untouched,” a reviewer named Don Wade wrote. “I had hoped this was for the kitchen, but after trying it on rosemary, thyme and black pepper I’ve decided this thing must be for cooking up something else and not your favorite family friendly recipe..,
Only for very small amounts of spices, like a teaspoon.., not enough for the recipes I use…,
In hind-site I should have known this was not really a kitchen tool.., but a recreational tool.., I have no use for it…, If you do, perhaps it will work :)”
Well, Dan, you’re right! The grinder is for “cooking up something else” indeed.
