Occasionally I get completely fascinated and sucked in to an informercial and get incredibly tempted to buy something. The most recent example was one I saw today, the Nicer Dicer. Forgot the little chopping machines that were once all the rage, this thing looks like an alligators jaw with a circular blade set into it, and you just pop the food in, slam the jaw down, and presto, diced whatever.
I haven't bought one, but believe me, I'm sorely tempted. Except it looks like it doesn't really do small dice, the resulting chop seems somewhat medium-sized. Well, that and the fact that anything you buy from an informercial ends up gathering dust in the back of a drawer or cupboard sooner rather than later, anyway.
