12 "As Seen on TV" products you'd actually want to own
We’ve all seen the cheesy commercials that come on, especially late at night. You know, the ones that market a product that might look or sound cool, but you have absolutely no use for? Well, after doing some digging, it seems there are actually a few products that might be worth your while. We’ve rounded up a list of “As Seen on TV” products that you’d actually want to own and use regularly.
Best “As Seen on TV” products
For your kitchen
The best place to incorporate time-saving tools is in the kitchen. These “As Seen on TV” products will help make your life a lot easier when it comes to cooking. You might actually enjoy cooking in the kitchen more.
EggPod by Emson
This nifty gadget is perfect if you love boiled eggs but hate the guesswork of boiling them on the stovetop. The EggPod can fit four eggs, and it produces perfect hard-boiled eggs every time.
All you have to do is put your eggs in the container, add some water, and microwave for 8-9 minutes. You don’t have to come back and check on them or spin them on your counter to see if they’re ready. Plus, after you pull it out of the microwave, you can shake it before opening to help crack the shells and make peeling easier.
The EggPod also works as a steamer for other vegetables like corn and small potatoes too.
Granitestone 10 Piece Cookware Set
This Granitestone cookware set is nonstick, cooks evenly, and has cool-touch handles. You can put any pots or pans in the oven up to 500° Fahrenheit, giving your pots and pans more functionality.
Each piece in this cookware set is covered with durable granite layers and a high-grade natural mineral coating inside.
Plus, every single piece is dishwasher safe. That has to be the biggest selling feature for me. Washing clunky pots and pans by hand is always such a pain. So it’s awesome that you can throw these cookware pieces in the dishwasher and save all that time and effort.
Evelots Defrosting Tray
When you defrost food in the microwave, it often partially cooks the food instead of solely defrosting it. And when you defrost food on the counter at room temperature, it can be a bad breeding ground for bacteria.
The Evelots Defrosting Tray is made of high-density aluminum that can conduct heat faster. This allows you to naturally defrost your food faster and without the use of a microwave.
I own something similar to this, but I have to chop onions or veggies into chunks before throwing them in to be chopped up finer. With the Nutrichopper, you can place the whole onion, tomato, etc. on the top and slice or chop it all in one go.
Of course, if you slice or chop a zucchini or a carrot, you’re going to have to cut it into smaller pieces. But this will still save you time prepping all of your chopped or sliced veggies.
And again, like most of the products in this kitchen section, it’s dishwasher safe. So as soon as you’re done using it, you can pop it right in your dishwasher for easy cleaning.
Spicy Shelf Deluxe (Expandable Spice Storage)
The Spicy Shelf Deluxe is marketed as spice storage for up to 64 spices. When your spices are organized on this neat contraption, you can easily see the names of all of your spices. You won’t have to go digging, moving around spice bottles until you find the one you need.
And while it’s marketed for spices, you can use it to store pill bottles, nail polish, craft supplies, and more. It’s a great organizer to display smaller items clearly so you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
For your comfort
These next two items will help minimize pain and discomfort in your everyday life.
Egg Gel Seat Cushion
You can put this cushion on a home office or work chair, the car seat, or anywhere else you sit frequently. If you’re prone to back or neck pain, this would be a great investment for you.
With over 500 flexible honeycomb grids, it disperses the pressure usually focused heavily on your low back and thighs. It’s breathable, and the medical-grade gel material won’t irritate your skin. Plus, there’s also a washable cover for extra comfort.
If you suffer from sciatica, degenerative discs, lumbar strain, or you sit a lot at work or home, this cushion will help alleviate pain and stress on your muscles.
This is another great item to buy if you suffer from sciatica or low back pain, piriformis syndrome, or if you’re pregnant.
The BeActive Brace is a pressure point brace that you would wear over your knee. It helps relieve pain by applying pressure to trigger points; when pressure is applied, the tension in the leg and the back is relieved almost instantly. Though if you use it regularly, you should see more long-term benefits.
For your hygiene
Although some of the “As Seen on TV” hygiene products seem a little meh, these are two that actually look really great!
Finishing Touch Painless Hair Remover
This is an item that’s been catching my eye for a while. I think it’s one of the best “As Seen on TV” products on this list.
This is a painless facial hair remover. Painless! And it’s gentle enough for everyday use; you don’t have to wait for the hair or peach fuzz to resurface.
It comes with a built-in light as well, so you can see even the smallest of hairs. And it’s packed into a tiny, discreet tube so you can easily take it with you in an everyday purse or when traveling.
Pill Pro Organizer
These pill organizers are great if you have multiple pills or vitamins you need to take on a daily basis. There’s a compartment for each day of the week, labeled for the morning, afternoon, evening, and before bedtime.
Each pill container stacks on top of one another. You just pull the bottom container out to get your pill container for the day. The pill containers are easy to open as well, great for those with arthritis or limited strength.
I love that there’s an individual pill container for each day so that you can take a small container with you in your purse or your pocket. You don’t have to lug around a large pill organizer for the whole week.
For your quality of life
These are somewhat random items, but both could serve a great purpose in your life. Well, the first item is more fun and quirky, but the second item is handy.
I’d be surprised if someone hadn’t seen or heard of The Clapper. This lovely item allows you to program two pluggable devices to turn on and off by clapping your hands.
For whatever’s plugged into socket A, you’ll clap two times; for whatever’s in socket B, you’ll clap three times. You can adjust for soft and loud claps.
The Clapper isn’t necessarily going to change your life, but it would be a lot of fun, especially for kids.
If you’ve ever been in a car, you know just how frustrating it can be when something falls between the seats. Whether it’s a stylus or a french fry, you’re going to have to spend time crawling around to retrieve your lost goods. That’s where the Drop Stop comes in — it stops what you drop.
The main idea is fairly simple, and the device even found its way onto Shark Tank. It essentially works as a pillow that fits right into the cracks between your seat to catch whatever should happen to fall. The Drop Stop also fits around your seat belt buckle, so you don’t have to worry about anything slipping through.
You can grab your Drop Stop in a pack of two, and this might be one of the most useful products on the list unless you like to crawl under your car seats.
Our last As Seen On TV product that you might want to consider is called Spin Power. You don’t have to spin this handy power strip to access the power, but rather you can spin the two disks to access the full range of ports. Bell and Howell’s powerful and portable power surge protector includes a retractable 45-inch cord for more flexibility.
As for options, you’re looking at a set of six USB-A ports and four power outlets to choose from. If you need even more power, there’s a deluxe version that adds a third layer on top. A phone tray serves as the icing on top, and you can easily position your device to follow along with a recipe in the kitchen.
