    It can be any ASOTV (as seen on TV) product you have tried, what was it and what did you like or dislike about it?

    What I liked:
    Orgreenic frying pan ... This thing is awesome!

    The snuggie blanket with sleeves ... I use mine every day!

    Flex seal, don't know if it will make a screen door water proof, but it does work pretty well for us.

    That flex hose thingy, it's pretty cool.

    "Wen" hair system. It does work but its expensive!

    What I didn't like:
    No no and any other "painless" hair removal device.

    "Eggies" those things that say you can crack an egg into and boil it out of the shell or whatever ... It didn't work :/

    Our eggies worked, but they were so hard to clean after it just wasn't worth it.

    Over the summer I bought those things that make shapes out of your fruit, can't think of the name, but I liked those, we made some pretty good edible arrangements.

    Grip and Go was a failure, didn't stay on my windshield but stayed on my phone so when it rang, I ended up talking with the whole device attached.

    I liked those camisole things you clip to your bra.

    I bought that rubber spray, but can't find any uses for it yet.

    I know I have bought more ASOTV stuff just can't think of any right now.

    I got the pocket hose from someone, which made for some funny jokes because we all have the minds of adolescent boys and any hose that grows is funny, but that thing was a POS. It worked fine for a couple uses, thought it was a good idea actually.

    But it didn't even last a half of summer and it completely broke down. The gaskets/seals were not very good quality to begin with, but I could live with that, it's a hose that grows for crying out loud, but then the entire hose just gave out. Water wouldn't even make it to the other end, it would just leak out the entire length of the hose. and it was only used a handful of times.

    I hesitated to post on this thread because I don't want to show how old I am, but since you guys know I have a son old enough to be serving in the army......I guess the cat is loose!

    Years ago (don't know how many...more than 10) I ordered Ron Popiel's 5 tray food dehydrater. Liked it, still use it today! I make dog treats, yogurt, and occasionally beef jerkey. I used to make bird treats with it too when I had Marty the parot. I liked all the little "but wait Ron...there's MORE!" Items that came with it too! Especially loved the slice-o-matic thing, it worked great but sadly it broke too soon.

    We also own the "Set it and forget it" rotisserie oven thing from Ron. We didn't buy it, my mom did. She loved the food, but didn't like the clean up so she gave it to me. I don't use it often for the same reason. It cooks the food great and easy, but the clean up is not worth it most of the time.

    More than one of our kids have a snuggie....and use it! We still joke about them, but they are nice.

    We had the growing hose thing too...the older model that sort of looked like a hair scrunchy. Pretty much the same experience RTH had, not worth it.

    I have the green plastic food containers that have "nano technology" which keeps my food fresh for longer :rofl1: Actually, it DOES stay fresh a tiny bit longer in them, but it probably has more to do with keeping the light out....not really anything "nano" going on, LOL

    I have (and still use) these hair things, they work well and hold my hair all day....

    I know we have more ASOTV stuff....some we ordered on TV, some we've been given, and some we've purchased at various stores that offer 'the brand' It's hard not to want those things sometimes after they've put together such a nice demonstration of how wonderful said product is! LOL For us, I'd say the products have lived up to the promises more often than they haven't so I'm sure we haven't spent the last on ASOTV stuff :)

    The wax vac just grosses me out.

    Fast Bright, the head light restorer sucked.

    I have a set of those Walk Fit orthotics (first gen). They make my cheap shoes wearable. I'd get another set.

    Wax vac- not only is it weird ... It doesn't work lol.

    Micro touch max works really well!

    The Genie bra is pretty cool too

    Food saver vacu-seal thing, also good. It keeps food for a long long time.

    Space bags- also very handy if you have a lot of stuff.

    I love walking through the ASOTV section of Wal mart and just looking at all the stuff.

    What about stuff you want to try? That contraption that makes stuffs or hamburger patties looks cool.

    Not sure if it.is ASOTV, but the Simple Green cleaner is *amazing*. That is what I use for general purpose cleaning. It gets ick away, it is gentle, and it smells good. Win win win.

    I have a snuggie, and yep I use it, but only when travelling.
    I have a magic bullet BLENDER and I love it, 6 years and still going, admittly the last few weeks it's a bit off.
    I'm sure there's more ill have to think about it...

    Oh ya that easy bake oven for grown ups, the flavorwave! I live that stupid thing.
