    I think the Inauguration TFH would be a *dazzling* addition to my
    collection!

    The plastic mandolin still serves me well. The safety handle that you stab to
    hold the veggies with broke one of the three stabbers. Maybe it was my fault,
    after what, 15 years?

    A couple of the Ginsu steak knives rusted on me.

    I've got the lifetime warranties around here somewhere! I wonder if the
    companies who made the things are still out there, somewhere.

    Always a bridesmaid, never a bride... <sigh>

    As for kitchen gadgets, I've never purchased one off the TV.
    I've been more likely to buy one when I perused the cooking gadget
    section at the store. :-)

    Or saw a cool idea here.

    That Tilia infomercial made me want one of my very own.
    I didn't order it from the Call Now! advertisement, but I did
    buy one online. I'm happy as a clam with the thing.

    Of the people who bought something off of TV ... what did you get?

    I bought the Magic Bullet. It is a glorified smoothie maker. I can't do
    anything else with it as it turns everything into a smoothie. Chicken salad
    smoothie not so good. OK it's is pretty good spread on bread. Just not
    right texture.

    For what it does do make smoothie it does it wonderfully.

    I bought the Ultimate chopper. I used it a lot until I got my small
    food processor, and still use it sometimes. I found it new, still in the box
    at a yd. sale f or 10.00. I also have the Express 101 for our van camper
    and used it a lot at first, but lately I've been packing homemade frozen
    dinners since we don't sit still long enough to do anything but micro a
    quick meal. I bought it at the home shopping network outlet in Toronto.

    Don't you just love the names of these gadgets? I know I do.

    A few more I've heard lately: FlavorWave oven, Titan peeler, Meatball
    Magic...

    What else?

    Who remembers the Hand-Hammered Wok From The People's Republic of

    "operators standing by". I found it at a local department store (the
    old Stix Baer and Fuller for you STLers). That way I could actually
    look at it. That had to be 25 years ago. Still have it, still use it.
    Made stir-fry with it last night.

    The only other thing I've really been tempted by was that can-opener
    that supposedly slices the seam of the lid, leaving a nice smooth edge.
    I would have to get that from a store though, so if it didn't work I
    could take it back easily.

    What pisses me off about these TV gadgets is that they improve them and
    because I bought one when they first came out, and they still work, I
    haven't gotten the improved versions. Examples: Foodsaver bought in 2001.
    Still works, but there are many bells and whistles that I'd like to have but
    can't justify while my old one works. George Foreman: same, it is the
    original version; no temp control, no bun warmer, but it still works fine.

    I'm not sure we are talking about the same thing, but my sister has one
    that cuts on the side, right under the seam of the lid. It looks
    smooth, but I bet it is wicked sharp. Also, the seam gives a lot of
    rigidity to the can. Once it is off, the can feels pretty floppy.
    Still, that's what she likes, and it works really well for opening cans.
    I prefer the kind that cuts on the top.

    Why does it not surprise that you bought at least two "on tv crappy
    gadgets" Andy the loser?

    I bought my first Tilia based on an RFC review many years
    ago. I think we're on our third model now. Purchased at
    Costco this time.

    We have assorted devices that we've seen on infomercials,
    some in regular use like the Magic Bullet at our place or the
    George Forman grill that both grow up daighters keep on
    their counters. Others eventually migrated out to the garage
    then got trashed.

    We use the Aerogarden as a kitchen night light that happens
    to produce fresh herbs.
