DOES IT WORK: Like a blanket with sleeves

I HAD to review this product. Its more of a commentary of the state of "as seen on TV" products. People like to buy stuff on TV. Granted, it is a cute name/concept, but it has already been done. I can remember the Skanlet before it. I have a hard time even calling it an invention, it's more of a mash up of a blanket with a hoodie.

That being said, it's a little to roomy for my taste. (It's one size fit all) And it could be just my house but it creates a lot of static electricity. It's also a little thin side.

Titan Peeler

DOES IT WORK: It's a go!

In all fairness I don't peel that often; just potatoes and carrots for soup and fruits such as apples and mangoes. Peeling is not a huge problem for me, but the peeler was easier than the standard peeler. It does work in both directions. Overall, I thought the price and the shipping and handling fees were high, but usual for a "as seen on tv" product.

Smart Lidz

Smart Lidz
DOES IT WORK: For the not so smart

This one is easy; the lid's seal lasts for about 5 minutes. After that time, it loses the 'seal' and the lid come loose. It seems to me the basic problem is that most containers don't have a perfect rim surface and since the Smart Lidz are attached to a plastic rim they can't really conform to uneven surfaces. You can't fight physics.

I suppose if you only need a seal for a short time or just need a loose cover and have 10 extra bucks then you may be satisfied.

A good review
