as seen on TV
I inherited many great things from my Daddy...his sweet tooth, his sarcastic sense of humor...but most of all...his weakness for infomercials. We looooove infomercials and are very susceptible to their lure. Once, while Mom and I were trapsing around Europe for a month for a "study" abroad, we came home to find Dad had purchased a set of knives....a set of 500 knives. Yup, 500. We're talkin' everything from pocket knives, to steak knives, to machetties. If you're ever looking for a knife...ask me first before buying anything. Several are in boxes still...mint condition.
Anyway, my informercial weaknesses tend to gravitate towards kitchen and home appliances. Below are some of my favorite products.
Pancake Puff Kit
I have yet to buy this....but oooh what confections I could create!
I'm thinking this would be a great stocking stuffer for Spencer. He refuses to make more than one trip when carrying in groceries.
We bought this when we first got married. Loved it! Unfortunately it dropped off the fridge and broke.....we should get another one...
Lighted Party Fountain
This is my favorite thing ever. I love this thing!! It comes out at EVERY party.
Being the clean freak that I am...I want this so badly I could pee my pants.
Coolest. Thing. Ever. Do I garden? No. But I betcha I would if it was on my counter...AND, no dirt! Hello!! I want one when I have a bigger kitchen so I can grow my own herbs.
So, the reviews on this are not good....but I still secretly want one. I'm going to try and excersize some restraint though.
My brother and sister got this for us one Christmas. My brother, Brock, shares my cullinary passion. I was so excited I think I slobbered all over myself. I still use this thing almost every day. The infomercial is my fave...it's ridiculously hilarious. Now, the Magic Bullet does not do all it says it does...exactly...but almost.
These are fab! We bought these for my plant-savy Mother-in-law and she loved them so much she ordered like 10 more.
We bought this recently for Belle. She's not a huge fan, but it's less scary than nail clippers.
Save a Blade
We want one of these but we're a little leary because we don't know if it works.
I have to have Spencer do mine...I can't do it fast enough. Still, good purchase.
