It is certain that everyone at one time or another have been watching TV late at night and have seen those late night infomercials. Many of these products, you can just tell by looking that the first time you use them they are going to break. But after some research, some of these 'as see on TV' products might be worth taking a second look at.
You might have said no thanks to some of these products since after adding shipping and delivery they seem less of a bargain and more of a hassle. Just recently, these products have begun being sold in different discount stores as well as at some drugstores and also on the internet. So no longer are these 'buy me but I break immediately' products such a hassle to get - in fact some of them have turn rather mainstream. And (surprise, surprise) some of them are really decent products where you do get a ROI or return on your investment.
Skip the Cat Products
First of all, forget any of the cat products. If it makes any type of whirling noise or has anything to do with their toe nails - you might just be wasting your money. No cat is going to set still while you are messy with her toe nails with some whirling thing that makes even the tiniest bit of noise. Cats are just not built that way. As for the dog products this household has not tested any since there is no dog living here.
Cuts Through Plastic Packaging
Now for some of the really genius products that are worth the money. There is a gadget that is often advertised on those infomercials and the sales copy claims that this plastic handled cutting tool will slice right through any annoying plastic packages that DVD, or CD, or numerous other products come packaged in. This gadget really works as claimed, it very easily slices through any type of plastic packaging and for only $10 is well worth the price.
There is also a ceramic knife that supposedly slices through anything. It cost about $20, never rusts and there is not anything that it won't slice through - onions, tomatoes, meat and works fairly well on chopping also. So you are not wasting your money with this product.
All In One Bowl
This last product is the best and cheapest of all. You can make pasta and serve it all in the same bowl - it's a pot, strainer and serving bowl all in one. You put the water and the pasta inside the bowl, put it into the microwave and when it is finished, you use the built-in strainer and then you serve your dish all in the same bowl. You just can't beat this product especially if you want your son or husband to help with getting dinner on the table. It works just as seen on TV.
So the next time you are at the neighborhood drugs or discount store, look for these products. Not only do they work but they would make great Christmas gifts. They work as seen on TV.
