Mark Dain My understanding of AmazonBasics was always cheap, reliable, trustworthy home office equipment; being that they started with cables, PC peripherals, shredders, etc... I have several of there things and can vouch it's good stuff. I just found out today they've been quietly expanding the range. You can now get an Amazon made Blender: amazon.co.uk/x/dp/... Mattress: amazon.co.uk/x/dp/... Kettle: amazon.co.uk/x/dp/... Towels: amazon.co.uk/x/dp/... I could go on... It seems Amazon is trying to not just sell everything to you but also make. I like it!

Mark Dain Amazon is building every day items like kettles and blenders where there's virtually no loyalty but a lot of competing products with varying levels of trust.

To contrast, Amazon Basics also sells In-Ear headphones but I'd never buy those as I have brands I trust like Apple and Sennheiser I can turn to. Idk, maybe it's shady but I cannot fault their stuff; it's genuinely high quality and always comes with next day delivery, tracking and frustration free packaging; which I absolutely love.
