Commercials for As Seen On TV products are often laughably bad, and the products themselves tend to be shoddily made overpriced junk that falls apart or flat out doesn't work as advertised.
But when the products work well they go from being Not Sold In Stores to As Seen In Lots of Stores, and we start to wonder how we ever lived without them.
The Ronco Food Dehydrator has been a product my family can't live without since we first got one in the 90s, and it makes great jerky, delicious dried fruit and homemade fruit leather!
And who wants to stand there chopping onions and peppers all day when you can use the Mueller Onion Chopper Pro and dice 'em up fast? It's not super durable, but it does make perfect dicing a breeze.
And speaking of not super durable but very useful- the Wonder Hanger works just as advertised, and really helps clear up your closet provided you have a strong rod and don't hang anything too heavy on the hangers.
