Stonewave, quick cooking in microwave, mainly use for eggs. My son took one with him. Works good.

The Titan Vegetable peeler. They ran a 2 for 1 promo, and then sent doubles so we ended up with 4 for something like 11.99. Three were gifted. The other one is still a beast after 10 years. It's going to be around to pass down to grandkids.

• We actually bought and liked a Magic Bullet (although we bought it at Kohls). My grown son took it when he moved out.

• Bought and love our Shark Navigator vacuum cleaner (learned about "As on TV", but bought from Bed Bath & Beyond).

• And we bought and still make much use of our Try Temptations casserole dishes, which we actually bought through the TV offer.

I've always seen 'As Seen on TV' as a badge that reads - 'this product costs too much because the company that makes it spends too much on advertising'

Probably, but not because I watched the ad. I don't watch 'TV', haven't for years.

Another “once” vote for Flex Seal. Didn’t buy it from the TV people though.

I have been looking for a cheap rotary shaver that did not pull hairs ever since the Norelco I got in the mid 70's broke about 1988 when it got dropped one too many times. I considered buying the Bell-Howell "Tac" rotary shaver, then I saw the Amazon reviews (23% one star).

Another Stonewave user here, it works surprisingly well and is very cute.

I've gotten at least one other that turned out to be something useful, but don't recall what it was right offhand.

Another Magic Bullet purchaser here, but from a store, not the infomercial. And then something else that I can't remember, to use for an office Xmas party "white elephant" gift. Also from the "As Seen On TV" aisle at a store, not from dialing the number on my screen.

They sell some of that stuff at Fry's over in Manhattan Beach (don't know if it is open during the lockdown). Also one shelf at Rite Aide I think. When I see these ads on television, I don't trust calling the 800 number and giving somebody my credit card number, and when I see it in Fry's etc I realize that I'm only getting one for the full price. Plus I already have a frying pan.

I did buy the ultraviolet cured bonding stuff from Amazon.

One big issue I've noticed with the "As Seen on TV"stuff is that whether you pay their outrageous shipping prices or the shipping is free, you still need to allow about a month to get the product. If anything looks interesting on TV, I usually just google it and/or wait for it at a B&M.

Like some above, I've bought some stuff, but never from TV. Most flea markets have a booth where all they sell is the "As seen on TV" stuff. I've bought Flex Seal, and a bacon cooker from what I remember. The bacon cooker looked weird, but it worked... for a while. Sorta like a rotisserie cooker for bacon. The problem was that over time the plastic skewers warped until they were unusable. I'm sure I bought a few other things there, just can't remember anything in particular.
