    I actually purchased mighty putty. It was a good fix for a minor water leak.

    I also own a select comfort bed 5 yrs ago.. Best thing I've ever purchased after watching a television ad. The bionic woman does not lie!!

    Was considering the Jack Lalanne juicer-still not sure yet. Anyone own one???

    I haven't bought anything from an infomercial. But my friend bought the Ronco rotisserie thing. And she says it's great. I've been over for dinner a few times and that thing does work well. The meat comes out nicely cooked and juicy.

    I'm tempted to get one of those sandwich maker things.

    I bought the infomercial Roto-Zip, and it was a piece of crap that fell apart after half a dozen uses. The only other infomercial product I've purchased are Phase 4 Orthotics (now Walkfit Orthotics), and they are damn near miraculous for me.

    I have a Magic Bullet, it works great for smoothies and subs as a food processor. I also purchased from Walgreens, Save-a-Blade for this helps extends the life of my razors.

    Are those things basically a reversed robe?

    Some of the names are cute: Magic Bullet. Mighty Putty. Some are just stupid: XT Ultra PL7 Mega 105.4 Sonic Stimulator. I'm sure the mnemonic devices for their phone numbers are equally artful.

    I try not to watch infomercials because then it's hard to resist not buying anything. I've bought a few things though and they've worked so-so. I think it's always best to look up reviews of what you want to buy online first.
    My roommate has a Jack Lalanne power juicer and to be honest, it kinda sucks.
    Whenever you juice things like carrots or other "meaty" fruits/vegetables the whole thing gets clogged up from so much pulp and the motor just stops running. So then you have to take it ALL apart, clean the insides so they're pulp free, put EVERYTHING back together and resume your juicing icon_biggrin.gif
    They make it look so easy on T.V lol. But I guess it does give you a workout from so much putting together, cleaning, and all that other stuff. Oh, and if the fruits are kinda small or cut into weird shapes or whatever they get stuck down the chute icon_eek.gif

    Crazyyy

    Thanks for the info on the juicer. It seemed way too inexpensive to be that good.
    I'll keep shopping.

    That blanket thing is the same as putting a robe on backwards- hahah people are gullible. At 2 for 19.99 they would make a great Hallowwen costume. In the marroon you could be a monk.icon_lol.gif

    I bought the Chop Wizard when it first came out. I loved it so much I bought them as Christmas gifts for several friends. They love it too. I use this thing almost every meal for making salads. It's great!!

    I bought this off the television advertising and it is a pretty good addition to my little collection of fitness gear.
    Perfect-Pushup.jpg

    I don't have the room or the inclination to buy a whole heap of fitness gear to deck out a home gym. I have just stuck to some pretty all-around basics.

    Free weight dumbell set with plates
    Fitness ball
    Ab-rower
    and now these little pushup handles.

    I need the gym experience to keep me motivated, but I can always add some extra exercises at home when I'm bored or watching TV.

    there was this drink blender in the 90's called like the tornado that i bought, it was small and black and swirled the drink together. I liked that a lot! My next purchase? a snuggie. One for me... and 1 for every guy I talk to on RJ, including NV!

    omg i totally forgot that was on an informercial. I bought mine from Walgreens but indeed, i found it to work well, although it it totally just a cheese grader for your feet, stinky dead skin everywhere and do it over the toilet or on an easily cleanable surface as the skin tends to make a mess. feet soaked in warm water first gives even better results!!!! and yes it is a little gross to share my knowledge of Ped egg lol
