In the world of mass-market kitchen knives, it doesn’t get much better than Shun. The Japanese manufacturer is known for its ultra-thin, ultra-sharp blades. They’re less utilitarian than most German knives, which excel at less refined jobs like breaking down a chicken. But when it comes to slicing, Shun blades easily outperform the European competition. Right now, you can grab a four-piece set of Shun knives from Williams Sonoma for just $160 — that’s $278 off the suggested retail price.
Equipped with a 2.2 HP motor, the Vitamix 7500 is the brand’s most powerful household blender. It weighs slightly more than the popular 5200 model, but it’s shorter and wider and thus best suited for kitchens with a lot of counter space or those crippled by low-hanging cabinets. Because of this design, it’s more stable (read: quieter) than other Vitamix models, too. While the 7500 normally retails for $530, it’s going for just $406 on Amazon — that’s more than $120 in savings.
When Jaybird, one of the leading manufacturers of sports headphones, released the Freedom line in 2016, David Carnoy at CNET called it the “the best Jaybird headphone yet.” Michael Calore at Wired also had nice things to say; he scored the Freedom a 9/10, noting just one flaw: the $200 price tag.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
