Mixing the great American traditions of gaudy showmanship and practical ingenuity, the great As Seen on TV series of zany products may well have been ahead of its time when it got started over twenty years ago. Among the crazy As Seen on TV products, however, there are some that are surprisingly compelling. From useful hardware solutions to easy microwave cooking hacks, here are some of favorite As Seen on TV products that you’ll definitely put to use.

1. Lazer Bond Liquid Resin

This nifty UV-activated resin comes in a cool pen and purports to be able to adhere to metal, wood, plastic and glass. It’s useful for mending broken wine glasses, PVC pipes, porcelain and more. Since it supposedly hardens in just 3 seconds flat, it’s great for situations where it’s awkward to hold something in place for a while such as eyeglasses repair.
