For starters, never think about Ron Popeil before dinnertime UNLESS you already own a Ronco Showtime Compact Rotisserie Oven from Ronco. Otherwise, you'll get really, really hungry. That's how effective their "set it and forget it" advertising is.

Review – Ronco Showtime Compact Rotisserie Complaints, Reviews, Rip-Offs, Scams…

Not only is the Ronco Showtime Compact Rotisserie Oven a "Set-It-and-Forget-It" product, but the research is about the same. The only problem is that because there's such intermittent complaints, you'd swear you were overlooking something. Not that there aren't any complaints; there are a few, but that's when you widen the search and look for all Ronco products. A "didn't get the magazine subscription," here and a "the basket isn't setting properly," there. We also heard of a couple, "the product didn't last,' but nothing significant. No, "They wouldn't accept the lifetime guarantee." No, "this is the worst, outsourced customer service thing ever." Normally we would link to the reviews, but in the majority of the cases, it's tough to tell to exactly which product the complainer is referring.

Ronco has the tendency to set the industry standard when it comes to product, service and support. And the hidden charges are kept to a minimum. One might bark at the amount of the S&H, but the $30 is not entirely unheard of, especially when one factors in the additional bonuses.

It's one of the few products where taking a "set it and forget it," mindset to purchasing wouldn't be considered a bad idea.

Decompressing w/ Dr. Ho's Back Belt [Review] - (I could have said, "pimpin' ").

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
