Your Share your experiences with stuff bought through infomercials....

Inspired by this thread.

A few years ago, I have bought two things new, and one second hand. One PVA cleaning broom, one manual kitchen machine. Both were okay and pretty handy, but both appreared at the local Hema of Blokker (Dutch equavalent of Sears) a few months later for about 5 % of the price I paid for it.
The secondhand thingy one of those electral muscle/stimulators that are supposed to make your muscles contract and excercise, was a complete waste of the 5 dollars I paid for it.

Be honest: what infomercial did you fall for? Or can anyone point me to somewhat objective reviews of the stuff generally sold through infomercials ?

Oops… could a mod please correct the threadtitle? :o
