Does It Really Do That?

Furminator
The Furminator. It claims to be the ultimate de-shedder. It says it will take out all that hair that ends up everywhere and for $36, it should, but does it really do that? The Furminator gets a definite thumbs up. One word of warning though, you want to do this outside.

Go Duster
The "Go Duster" promises to make dusting easier but does it really do that? We found the Go Duster works best on dusty wooden blinds.

Self Tanner
There are always self tanners, but when it comes to self tanners, it's not just "Do they really do that?", but do we really want to be the color that some of them turn us and for how long? Amy Adelman says, "I would buy two products. I would buy the Clairins definitely for upkeep. And I would buy the Salon Bronze just to have in case I needed to be tan because it did have a beautiful color."

Roomba
It's billed as a vacuum that cleans up, even when no one is home; but does it live up to the hype? KD Consumer Editor Yvonne Zanos agrees that the Roomba did a great job of sweeping up the dust and crumbs that can add up in between cleanings; but at a price of $279, she says it depends on how much you're willing to pay for that extra help around the house.

Eurosealer
The Eurosealer is a gadget that promises to be a real money saver, claiming you can now buy in bulk without worrying about food going bad or getting stale. But does it really do that? Overall, Shelley Cicchini gives the Eurosealer a thumbs up.

Space Bag
You've seen those space bags for storage that promise to triple your storage space… but are they truly a space saver or just a money waster? We're giving the space bag a thumbs down. There seems to be a 50 percent chance your bag will have a hole in it.

Big City Slider Station
You've probably seen the infomercial for a special pan that makes those little restaurant-style mini-burgers called "sliders." It's called the Big City Slider Station and sells for $20, plus shipping and handling. It promises you can make five mini burgers in minutes with no mess, but does it really do that… and do you really need this? In the end, the Big City Slider Station does really do that. It just isn't quite as easy to clean up as it promises.
