Late last week, something tragic happened: Our coffeepot broke. Someone who shall remain nameless had the temerity (or, more accurately, maladroitness) to drop the pot, shattering it into a million tiny little pieces. I arose up that morning to the devastating news that, for the first time in as long as I can remember, there would be no coffee greeting my awakening.
This problem was not easily remedied. In the days immediately following the fiasco, one of the members of my household had to make a Starbucks run each morning. This solution may have stuck a Band-Aid on the issue, but it was clearly not economical in the long run. No, we needed a new coffeepot. But which one?
I’m not exactly sure who came up with the idea to eschew the traditional 12-cup Mr. Coffee machine you can buy at the Giant for $25. Still, someone did, and as a result, a 45-cup Hamilton Beach “coffee urn” arrived at our doorstep via Amazon Prime two days later. The thing was HUGE:
We’ve only been using the “coffee urn” for a few days now, but its advantages and disadvantages are quickly becoming clear. For one, the “formula” on how to make the coffee (i.e., the grounds to water ratio) is completely different from the typical drip coffee machine we were used to. Our first attempt at morning coffee was borderline undrinkable it was so weak. But we get a little bit closer to brewing the perfect cup on each attempt, and I’m optimistic that we can get there soon.
The coffee urn’s biggest selling point is that it stays hot all day, as long as you keep it plugged in. The quality of the coffee will not diminish as the day goes on, as in the case with joe made in your traditional coffeepot. This has proved quite the boon during quarantine, when you want just one cup for an after-lunch pick-me-up, but do not want to go through the hassle of brewing a whole new pot. The jury may still be out on if this is actually a better buy than what it replaced. But for just $49.99 there is no question it offers great value.

At $9, This Silly Plush Turkey Hat Is A Must-Own
In 2022, Santa hats are out. Silly turkey hats are in.
I was on Amazon looking for things to do over Thanksgiving with relatives (eventually landing on the brand new game Christmas Categories) when I came across this:
My first thought was that it creates the perfect opportunity for someone in the family to recreate the classic Monica turkey head scene from Friends:
Then I realized that there are many ways you can have fun with the turkey hat Thanksgiving. When you play games, you can decide in advance that the loser has to wear the turkey hat. Or perhaps you can start a tradition that whoever carves the turkey each year gets to wear the turkey hat. The possibilities are endless!
No matter how you are spending the holiday this year (with funny turkey hat, or sans funny turkey hat), the We Know Products team wishes you a very happy Thanksgiving!
Keep Comfort Within Arm’s Reach With NAIPO’s New Handheld Massager
If you go on Amazon and search for “handheld massager,” you will find dozens and dozens of clones of the same $100 massage gun. My immediate reaction upon seeing this was that there is no longer any innovation in the massager industry. Instead of actually investing in R&D to come up with more advanced ways to help customers, massager companies seem content to copy one another and compete on price.
One company gives me hope. That company is NAIPO, a well-known massager brand whose stated mission is to help people all over the world “Find Well-being.” NAIPO’s latest handheld massager features a brand new design that provides added value for the user. While it is still a percussion massager, its sleek comfort-grip handle grants access to otherwise inaccessible areas of the body. It also features 5 interchangeable massager heads so that you are able to treat each acupuncture point with the best possible massage.
This attention to detail creates a truly customizable experience. After a workout or just a long day at work, you can choose from 5 different speed levels and 5 different working modes, from gentle relaxation to vigorous, deep-tissue massage. By virtue of the extended front grip, you can give exactly the right type of massage to previously neglected muscles all over your body.
A common complaint about percussion massagers is the noise level that can make it awkward or even impossible to use in public. The new NAIPO handheld massager is different. Unlike its competitors, it provides amazing results with only a single massage head. This has the twin effect of reducing noise levels and making it lighter and therefore less unwieldy, a huge plus especially for older users.
The NAIPO XF-5120 handheld massager will be available for purchase soon, and at $52.99 it is inarguably cheaper than similar products on the market. You get your very own either at NAIPO’s own storefront on naipocare.com or on Walmart.com. Stay tuned for more updates!
