When it says about an object and not a person what does money maker means?

Many products have a consumable element – fuel, oil, filters, etc. It’s common for the consumable to be a big money-maker for the company (like razors and razor blades, where the razors are sold as a loss-leader to get a revenue stream of razor blade sales).

    It means something that generates a lot of revenue.

    Those companies sell a lot of those consumables, which earn those companies a lot of money.
