Magic Bullet Blender Review

Posted on: November 29th, 2012 by

Now who doesn’t love a good milkshake every once in a while?  I know I do, but I hate the hassle of taking out and cleaning the blender.  So after seeing the Magic Bullet infomercial for the tenth time, I figured we better bring this unit into the StarReviews test lab and see just how […]

Grill Daddy Review

Posted on: May 23rd, 2012 by

Whether we are in the Florida offices or up north, the crew at StarReviews likes a good grilled steak but like everyone else, no one likes cleaning the grill after cooking.  You want to sit down, eat and relax, the last thing you want to do is scrub a grill in the middle of the […]

One of the ongoing themes for As Seen On TV products is finding new, innovative ways to improve upon traditional ways of doing everyday things.  Nothing exemplifies this more than the Cork Lifter.  The Cork Lifter is a new way to open wine bottles by using compressed air to lift the cork from within the […]

Samurai Shark Review

Posted on: May 1st, 2012 by

We are big fans of the late, great Billy Mays and his pitch during the Samurai Shark infomercial is some of his best work. He really does make this knife sharpener look impressive. We definitely have some knives and scissors that could use a good sharpening so we put the Samurai Shark to the test. […]

Flat Fold Colander Review

Posted on: February 15th, 2010 by

Cathy Mitchell, the star of the hit GT Xpress 101 infomercial, is back again with the Flat Fold Colander.  Her latest offering is full size colander that folds up flat for easy storage.  Traditional colanders work great, but they are bulky and take up a ton of space.  If the Flat Fold Colander can hold […]

Tap That Chopper Review

Posted on: February 12th, 2010 by

The Tap That Chopper is a competitor to the now famous Slap Chop.  We tested the Slap Chop and got some mixed results.  Although this device looks almost identical we decided to bring it into the StarReviews kitchen and see how it performed. The Tap That Chopper is a hand held manual chopping machine that […]

Tater Mitts Review

Posted on: February 1st, 2010 by

Not everyone is handy with a potato peeler.  If you are one of those people, the Tater Mitts promise to be a quick, easy and painless way for you to remove the skins from you potatoes. Their infomercial shows a user peeling a potato skin-free in just eight seconds.  Seems like a great alternative to […]

Grip N Flip Review

Posted on: January 27th, 2010 by

The Grip ‘N Flip and Scoop ‘N Strain are a couple of kitchen products that promise to improve on their more traditional counterparts.  In her infomercial, Cathy Mitchell makes the two utensils look really great.  They handle a variety of cooking tasks with the greatest ease.  We had to see for ourselves if the Grip […]

The Ove Glove Review

Posted on: January 25th, 2010 by

When it comes to handling hot pots, pans, skillets and other hot things in the kitchen there have traditionally been a few options.  There are oven mitts, potholders and even kitchen towels.  Although these all work, they all have flaws as well.  The Ove Glove hot surface handler is supposed to address all these flaws […]

EZ Grill Video Review

Posted on: January 12th, 2010 by

The EZ Grill is promoted as an all-in-one, portable and disposable charcoal grill.  If this grill lives up to the claims it would be the ultimate grill for tailgating, picnics, camping trips, nights on the beach, emergencies with no power and many other uses.  At StarReviews we take our grilling pretty seriously so we ordered […]

Always Fresh Containers Review

Posted on: January 12th, 2010 by

It would certainly be great if there were a way to keep foods fresher, longer in the refrigerator. Many products have come out that promise to do this, but of the ones we have used, the results have been mixed. The Always Fresh Containers claim to live up to this promise by utilizing nanotechnology to […]
