Nope, but my 5 yo dd, who is going to be a salesman's dream come true (she buys sales pitches hook line and sinker. It hasn't dawned on her that people might lie to sell her something, lol), is just SURE we can't live without it, lol. That and flip and fold. She's convinced her room will be neat and tidy (as in the commercial) if only she had flip and fold, lol. I am in so much trouble if this girl ever gets a hold of my charge cards, lol.

OMG!!! My daughter WANTS that flip and fold! She BEGGED for it for both Christmas and her birthday this past year! She was actually DISAPPOINTED because she didn't get the flip and fold. Guess that Barbie house and the Loving family home wasn't enough! lol She STILL wants that thing! It is actually on her "want" list! She is even talking about saving up her allowance for it! ROFL....what is with our girls?

On an off note, the one thing I have bought from those commercials on tv was that ironing board cover that comes with a "shield" for your iron so that you can iron "even silk on high". It is...errr...was AWESOME! We had it for a couple of years before it died, and we used the CRAP out of it. It was soooo great for DHs uniforms, and for all of my stuff, even the delicate things. And it was soooo quick to iron anything. died, as all good things do. I need to look around online and see if they still sell that thing and buy another one! :)

Are you talking about the pasta pot(s) that have the holes in top for draining ?

Don't know what you mean by free though :-) Well, if those are the pots you

are talking about, I have a small one and a large one. My mother-in-law saw

them and bought them for me, they came together in a set, not sure where she

got it though, not from an info-mercial though, some store in this area.

The small pot - the lid is hard to get on tight enough, you have to line it up just

right but I can usually drain out vegetables or rice in this one successfully if I am careful. The larger one, the lid tends to fall off so now I just use it as a regular pot :-)

The lid fell off once and I almost lost all my spaghetti so needless to say, I learned. After I realized the pot(s) didn't work as well as I had hoped or seen on TV that they were supposed to, I remember thinking, "It seemed like such a great idea"....LOL !!
