The great thing about infomercial kitchen products is that, generally speaking, they seem like they solve some grand problem, but in reality they end up sitting in the back of a drawer, only to be used once or twice.
Take the Tater Mitts, for example. They're rubber gloves with an abrasive surface, allowing you to peel a potato with your hands in, according to their accurate speed tests, a mere eight seconds. That's pretty fast, but unless you're an Irish chef or a misbehaving army recruit then I don't know how often you'll be busting these out. But hey, more crap to spend money on, stuff into drawers, and never use! It's the American way!
