Some of the As-seen-on-TV products are nowhere near what they’re advertised to be.
- I bought some of those copper-coated fry pans when they were released and mine were worse than the cheapest cookware from Walmart.
A basic teflon-coated pan from decades ago out-performs my copper cookware on every mark. I was frustrated because I knew some people who were lucky and received pans in the mail that largely performed as promised by the TV advertisements and commercials. That makes it maddening for me because you have to wonder, is it just a problem with quality control? Are some of the pans legitimately good while others are simply poorly made? It begged so many more questions than it answered. With my poor luck buying a copper cooking pan off a TV ad, I should have known that buying a hydroponic tomato garden could yield similar disappointments. These water growing systems can be particularly temperamental, and you have to flush the water regularly or you could have a fungal problem on your hands. I also learned that the lights are too low and do not allow enough room for the plants to grow. This is why I failed to grow cannabis with one of these hydroponic growing kits. The plants were tall enough to touch the light bulbs in under two month’s time. I learned my lesson buying products from TV advertisements and commercials. On the bright side, it activated a passion in me for growing cannabis. Now I have a proper marijuana growing setup, and I have that crappy hydroponic growing kit to thank for that.
