Infomercial Help
None

Posted on 02/02/2002 1:30:08 PM PST by 1L

For about the first time in my life I saw an infomercial for a product I think might be useful. Trouble is, I had to run somewhere before I could write down the title and now I've forgotten it, so I can't look it up on the net. Has anyone seen this product that looks like one of those chef tool french fry makers. It has a lever and has interchangable cutting blades. It can be used to cut and core fruit, cut eggs, potatoes, and even with certain attachments, works as a juicer.

I know, I know, buying stuff from infomercials usually isn't a good idea. I don't know if I'm interested in buying it; I just want to see more about it. Anyone know what I'm talking about?


TOPICS: Miscellaneous; Your Opinion/Questions

Thanks for the help.

Yeah, I've seen the gadget. Not only does it slice, dice and juice, it will also help you to gain rock hard "6 pack" abs in just minutes a day. Plus, it will get your whites whiter and your colors brighter, not to mention the thousands of dollars and loads of time you will save. But wait, that's not all! You also get a set of pairing knives, a miracle allergy cure and a handy dandy automatic car polishing kit for no extra charge, if you order in the next 15 minutes. Unfortunately, I can't recall the name of the gadget. The announcer was screaming so loud that I changed the channel right before they mentioned it.

If you've seen in on TV, go here for the kitchen crap at asseenontv.com. They will probably have it. Or, you could try Home Goods or Bed Bath and Beyond or Sur Le Table. You can normally find the same thing cheaper at a store...

Check you local department stores (Target, Walmart, etc). You can probably find a similar product, better made and less expensive.

Yes I do know what it is. I invented it! It was originally licensed as the Ron Popeil's French Fry Plus Kitchen Made Easy Thingy.

The license has since reverted back to me. I would be happy to send you one FREE of charge.

Please remit $199.95 shipping and handling.

Why don't you just check the infomercials tonight or tomorrow night or the next night or the next night? They do repeat them. It would save FR badnwidth, too. Robinson asked that this vanity posts not be made.

Huh? Would you please point out where he said that? I posted this on a weekend, NOT during a heavy news cycle, and I posted it in the proper forum. And you have the option of not having these posts from this forum come up if you want.

Don't try and play traffic cop. If the sysops here have a problem with what I post, they will surely let me know.

Yes, you are correct. I have to apologize, especially to you. I should have been commenting on the thread, entitled "Peppy U.S. Teens Vow to make this the Best Year Ever!!!." You remember that one, don't you? Had some great political commentary on there, and YOU really added something to think about.

From now on, I'll follow YOUR lead, oh perfect one.

My impression of the vanity post thing is that a post such as this is only going to get 2 dozen or so responses. 50 at the most. I think JimRob's real thinking was aimed at posts such as "What was the best Rock group of the '70s" or "What was your favorite TV show," posts that get responses well into the hundreds. If you truly think I'm wrong then why did you even post -- as you've added to the number yourself? Why didn't you just send an email to JimRob to get this post removed?

Can we make that in 3 easy installments? And if we order in the next 15 minutes, will you reduce that to only 2 installments of not $100, not $95, not even $92, but just two easy installments of $90?

And don't forget my ginsu knives that will cut through steel wool and still slice tomatos paper thin.

My fellow Freeper-- I was merely informing you of Robinson's request. It doesn't seem open to interpretation to me-- he asked us to stay on politics. Why would I want to have your post removed? Don't be such a sorehead. Robinson made the request. Gripe at him.

Yes. The inventor calls it Segway or Ginger or sometimes just "It". It costs aroud $600 and will change the world as we know it.

Sorry! I think the offer has beenwithdrawn. This marvelous tool which was reduced to $19,95 plus shipping and handling and which you would get two more free if ordered within seven minutes has been deemed to dangerous to ship by air or even donkey.

I thought this would be a thread about the amazing Flavor Wave Oven!

I saw it last night and it's the real deal. Juicy steaks from frozen to table in 20 min. They did the standard crazy demo where they cooked a chicken to perfection after it was frozen in liquid nitrogen!

Very interesting. I have a "thing" about kitchen "stuff." I can never have enough and every gadget is irresistible. BTW, how did you find that forum? I'm always interested in having feedback from others on stuff but google searches never seem to bring up discussions like that. It was an excellent discussion. Are you going to get one of those ovens?

You also get a set of pairing knives

I got a set of those years ago; been living in the same drawer all this time and I haven't seen even a razor blade yet; I think I got taken.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I saw the informerical a couple nights ago. It's black and has a long handle. If you act now they will take off one payment. I just did a bunch of searches for you, but I must not be hitting on the right keywords. If I find it I will let you know.

Hey, I did get the Ronco rotiseree and got it for free!I ordered it and instead of paying three installments I paid for it in full.After three weeks I called asking where it was since I had not received it.The girl told me to call back in a week. Aweek later I called and again voiced my concern that my creditcard had indeed been billed and no ronco,the girl apologised and said she would drop ship one that evening,three days later my machine arrived. Three weeks later my credit card statement came and I had a credit for what I paid for the machine,less 19.95 shipping,all in all I love the machine, it does chicken right,along with salmon steaks and roasts.

I also love my Ronco Rotisserie. One thing about Ronco, buy all your Ronco products from QVC. They have a better return policy, cheaper shipping, and the product is also less on QVC. Same goes for the George Foreman Grill.

I'm seriously considering getting it from ranchfoodsdirect.com as people suggested. Not a bad price at $150, and people seem to be happy with it. I found it using Google and the word "review."

The somewhat similar GE Advantium oven uses halogen lights to cook/broil fast without drying like a microwave, but it costs over $1000

I dunno. A really, really good printer, perhaps. Start by going to tvland.com . :)
