Amazon reviews oftentimes aren't actually helpful, and people may just use "helpful" as an upvote button (i.e. when they find it funny).
I mean, the top review for this banana slicer currently shows that 58,215 people found it helpful. Yes, nearly sixty-thousand for a banana slicer.
The reviews, questions and answers posted to this product are by far the funniest and most outrageous of any I’ve come across on Amazon.
Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer
“Great addition to any junk drawer!
I knew my kitchen junk drawer was missing something. It has the usual obscure utensils-ice pick, meat hook, those little corn cob sticker things-but it opened so freely. I knew this was unacceptable for any kitchen junk drawer. I needed that one big thing that would barely fit in and would snag the counter every time I opened it. The Hutzler 571 was perfect! Now my drawer snags like every other junk drawer I've ever had and I have to push the Hutzler 571 down with my hand to get it open. Plus when I need 16 pieces of a banana it does the trick. Nothing worse than 9 small slices and 7 big ones on your cereal. Thanks Hutzler 571!”
Stop the contest. Now. I found it - and u/princess32 I'm sorry but u/Lucy_Leigh225 is going to win this war. No, she has won it. With this.
This item is in such high demand, there are only 3 left! The reviews speak for themselves, seriously, check them out.
I present to you the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer - a steal at less than 9 dollars!
Highlights from the actual Amazon reviews:
" WOW!!!! Get this if you've ever been frustrated by the chore of slicing bananas! "
" Despite only doing left handed bananas it's a terrific piece of kit "
" This will end all your trepidations concerning the slicing of all bananas. "
" Why is this a thing ... "
Trust me* you won't regret it.
This banana slicer! Even if I were trying to get kids involved in cooking, I’d be comfortable handing them a butter knife to do it. Or teaching them to break it in pieces with their fingers!
Let's see... we got:
A cheese board made out of a polished field stone collected from a Massachusetts farm (pretty cool)
A really nice wooden salad bowl with tongs, plus homemade canned pickles from our friend's farm (pretty great)
A long pun-filled poem about relationships along with a big basket of common household items that matched the pun poem (hilarious and heartfelt, though we didn't keep all the stuff)
The infamous Amazon banana slicer (I don't know what I'd do without it)
A lawn ornament of godzilla eating a bunch of garden gnomes (AWESOME)
A fancy garlic press (loved it! Until I broke it last week...)
A beautiful, intricate, hand-made embroidery "painting" of a moon lit beach (not really our style but it is very pretty, so we hung it in our house)
A not-intricate, non-beautiful, terrifying cat embroidery as an inside-joke from 2 friends (100% our style and also hanging in our house).
A fondue pot. Because of course. (we sold it)
> This is not a feature. It's an improvement to the diplomatic AI. I could just as easily have implemented this "behind the scenes" without any visibility to the player.
You can call it whatever or hide it however. It's still an extra meter mechanic being added. And not practically better than just having "JointWarDoNothing" as a regular Diplomatic Incident.
A <strong>banana slicer kitchen gadget</strong> can't be duplicated exactly by a knife and is thus an improvement. Should it be added to the kitchen drawer?
> You can't have much of a diplomatic system if every interaction ultimately boils down to the value of a single relations number.
There isn't a need for complex diplomatic systems in RotP/MoO1, so a single relations number works.
There isn't Empire/Colony Population Morale, there aren't Galactic Crises, there aren't Unique Resources to trade/exploit, there's no Government/Religion/Culture/Marriage/Vassalage/etc. to bind Empires, there's no Social Points system to trade in for benefits, and the AI doesn't meta-game with Victory types/conditions.
The scales are just between War and Not-War. With the diplomatic system having singular links to other game mechanics (Trade:Economy:Good, Espionage:Technology:Bad, Gifts:Econ-Tech:Good, Fight:ConquestVictory:Bad, Vote:DiploVictory:Depends).
Bart the banana had a very bad day because he fell victim to this. [link]
He thought he was a champ but all the reviews made him feel even worse.
Thanks for the contest. I hope you feel better.
You probably don't think this is funny either (customer questions, answers, and reviews): [link]
But yeah, I agree with you. Anything that involves cats, British humor, and Woody Allen are just not funny to me...no matter what anyone else tries to convince me of.
Tons of funny reviews here:

Angle is wrong
By Jim Anderson - August 1, 2012
I tried the banana slicer and found it unacceptable. As shown in the picture, the slicer is curved from left to right. All of my bananas are bent the other way.
You should tell your relatives about this banana slicer. I bet they'd dig it.

Only $6.50 with free shipping. Very versatile. You can use it by yourself or with others. You can be the life of the party! You need to provide your own bananas though, but with the 43.50 you have left you could buy a bunch!

A banana slicer. But be mindful if the bananas are bent to the right or to the left in your area, so you buy the right one.

Their app on iOS is pretty slick. Once installed, you “share” a product to the FakeSpot app while browsing in the Amazon app, just as you would share it to a friend via SMS or email.
It’s assessments have generally tracked pretty well with my own spidery-sense gleaned from actually reading the product reviews. It does give amusingly straight-faced assessments for products who’s reviews have become memes, like the Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer or the Haribo Gummi Candy, Goldbears Gummi Candy, 5 Pound Bag.
