I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for informercials. I remember with searing clarity the first time I saw the Ronco Rotisserie Gold cooking no less than six chickens and three steaks at a time, and I was hooked. And hungry.
But the sad truth is, the vast majority of As-Seen-On-TV products are junk — semi-handy inventions manufactured as cheaply as possible overseas, designed to sell quickly in large quantities and just as quickly, exit the market.
Still, there remain a select few As-Seen-On-TV products that are 100% worth the hype. From enduring classics like the Ove Glove and Ronco Food Dehydrator, to popular newcomers like the Scrub Daddy and the Turbie Twist. And that's why we've assembled the 29 best from the genre that are more than worth the price. And since they're all on Amazon, you don't even need to pay those ridiculous shipping and handling charges.
We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!
