    Pros: 

    None

    Cons: 

    Everything about it

    Why is this here? It's just an ad for buzzfeed's affiliate page

    Is this considered to be a product?

    BRB, throwing up a page with a bunch of amazon affiliate links.

    Igor Gorbenko has never used this product.

    Pros: 

    Nothing

    Cons: 

    Everything

    Buzzfeed is pure garbage. Fast food for the mind. It makes your brain fat and dumb. This is just an affiliate link site presented in the insufferable, vapid way the world has sadly come to know over the years from Buzzfeed.

    Dick Hoebee has used this product for one day.

BuzzFeed quietly rolled out a Wirecutter competitor, curating and reviewing products across tech, beauty, home, and more. This isn't a surprise as they've been experimenting with content + commerce with their Product Labs' introduction of the Tasty One Top, Fondoodler, and even a garbage can. I'm tempted to talk about what we're planning in this space, but now's not the right time. 😉

@rrhoover Guessing this is a US-only site? I get redirected to buzzfeed.com/shopping, which is basically just listicles with affiliate links in them. Suspect a lot of other people in the comments have experienced this as well.

@rossdcurrie strange! I'm in the U.S. and not seeing that redirect.

@rrhoover I imagine it's because of the affiliate links are only good for US visitors. I end up seeing this (from Australia): Which... is basically just standard buzzfeed listicles but with more click-to-buy links

The first immediate thing that feels is missing is any reason why those reviews should be trusted. Wirecutter does a great job of breaking down what their process was and who the reviewer was each time.

If you trust Buzzfeed to give you unbiased recommendations, I've got a dossier to sell you.

@kyle_mcinnes Can you offer it to me at three different price points?

Buzzfeed has great long form content and reviews are one of those things that I usually do research on a lot of sites (including Wirecutter) but it seems like these reviews aren't as high quality as I'd hoped. I don't care about Buzzfeed's "listicles" but I was hoping this was not one of those rebranded for affiliate marketing. The most expensive options are usually ones that are *just* expensive, not much better than the lower priced ones. E.g. the non-stick pan from Cuisineart is not a great buy even at that price point.

Reminds me of Worth It! (Also a BuzzFeed produced show. The show review a dish at 3 price points).
