Whenever I stayed home from school as a kid, I’d turn on the TV to watch the strange and hilarious infomercials. At the time, they seemed ridiculous — we all knew the Flowbee would end in disaster, for instance. But there are some "As Seen On TV" products that work. These products have come a long way from the days of Ron Popeil and his hair-in-a-can. Because they're so darn good, they're actually worthy of an infomercial.

Luckily, you don't have to wait by your television set for the right 800-number to "call now." You can just go on Amazon and get some of these genius products without any additional sales pitch. The biggest plus is shipping and handling is almost always free.

Whether you're interested in semi-novelty products that actually come in handy (don't mock me for my Snuggie, it's really warm!) or want a product that will make food prep a million times easier, "As Seen On TV" items have you covered.

The only downside to "As Seen On TV" products getting better is now we all miss out on some incredible commercials. Though they may not live up to the cheesy standards set in my childhood, at least "As Seen On TV" products are now interesting to an audience larger than people who've fallen and can't get up.
