Anyone bought anything from an informertial that they really liked?

I bought one of those "wonder wash" small washing machine things. I love it! It's great for doing your handwashing and soaking things when you live in an apartment with little space.

Wow, you're brave for admitting that in public :p . I haven't bought anything, but I thought about buying the Potato Stand for a friend of mine as a joke...

I have to admit I bought the magic bullet. We use it all the time and I love it. Some things I still prefer to do by hand though.

We love it and use it all winter long (Hate to bbq outside, to cold) !

I bought a Foodsaver!!! And I absolutely love it!! I didn't buy it off of the tv though, I bought it from a store. But the infomercial definitely had me sold!

Yeah. I actually didn't buy mine off the TV either. I saw the infomertial years ago, but bought the washing machine when I moved out on my own. I wish I had bought it earlier as it would have been great for my university years!

The only thing I've bought from an infomertial was the Ronco rotisserie and I love it! Although he has some things that I would never ever touch... like the spray on hair. :yuck:

NEVER! I hate infomercials - turn them off. (I have to admit I HAVE listened to those Time Life ones in the background - and have dled many of them but never bought them!)

It wasn't so much an infomercial (the half-hour kind), but I did buy an '80's CD from the TV once. It was one of my favourite CDs. Then I loaned it out. Now it's a former friends favourite...

Never! But rest assured, if you give it enough time, you will find many of the items at Canadian Tire with an "As Seen On TV" sticker on the box. Seeing the item in person made me glad I had not ordered it.
