There is an outlet that swivels, so it is easily placed behind a couch, TV stand, bed, etc. and can still easily accomodate plugs. I live and swear by them - I think I have four or five throughout my home!
They usually have a lot of As Seen On TV products. You just have to look for them. There is a lot of stuff in their stores, so it forces you to spend lots of time in there. For example, I've seen the Ped Egg there and Snuggies are definitely sold there too!
I love the Perfect Brownie Maker. It is a nonstick pan, so the insert comes right out! It's a larger pan, so don't cook for as long as you normally would. I don't bake -without- my Perfect Brownie Maker!
