Fess Up! Ever Bought Something "As Seen on TV"?

It slices and dices! Wait, there's more! Well, who wouldn’t be tempted by a knife that can cut through a tin can and still slice a tomato? Or a tool that chops onions without tears? But the real question is have you ever actually bought something you saw advertised in an infomercial on TV?While I can’t say I’ve ever “picked up the phone and called,” I’ve been mighty curious about some of these products. These commercials are kitschy, no question, but I’ve always wondered if some of the products might work as well as they say. As someone who doesn’t sharpen her knives as often as she should, that old ginsu knife has particular appeal.

Do any of you have first-hand experience with these infomercial kitchen products?
