Turbo Snake Informative - Don't Fall For This One

Review by 124896 on 2010-06-07
CLEVELAND, OHIO -- I do hair while being between jobs and let me tell you that this gadget is a piece of crap! Between braiding, shampooing and styling my client's hair my drains accumulate hair which may clog from time to time.

Don't try this thing. I have better luck with a coat hanger!

Most of you probably know better but for those who don't please get a clue!

Yea I tried it too. The head thingy broke off in the drain and I had to spend an hour and a half trying to fish it out.

That's funny but I bet it wasn't back then!

Can anyone honestly say that they have purchased something from a TV ad that has worked? I tried a Jupiter Jack a while back, it, too, was a piece of crap.

Some of the cooking items work okay. The Foreman Grill for one.
Ronco had some pretty good stuff although I read that his Showtime Oven wasn't so hot.

How can you buy something from t.v. for the low, low, price of only $19.99 (limited time offer only...of course) and actually admit to that? RIP in Billy...for your job was not in vain apparently.

*GAG* Good thing I ate lunch before seeing that video clip in that link! Why not just buy one of those little sink stopper things that have the holes in the bottom of them so the water still drains but the hair gets caught in the stopper? You can pick them up for about $2 at Walgreens.

Kisha...did you actually buy the Snake Turbo or did you buy the knock off brand that is sold in the dollar stores? This is the reason I ask:


You and ZZ seems to have the same thought about the wire hangers.

They have knock off brands? Too funny.
I got the real deal and they blow!
Posted by D. on 2010-06-07:
Yeah...my Much Older Brother was going to buy one at the Dollar Store.

Well I must say that this is the best Turbo Snake review posted on my3cents so far.

Kisha, I look forward to your next review.

J4A...I have a set of Ginsu Knives that were given to me as a gift with the lifetime warrenty. I broke two of the knives and was never able to track down the company's address for my replacements...I guess the lifetime warrenties are for the lifetime of the company. I'm sure they just use a different name now.

Clap On!
Clap Off!
Clap On, Clap Off...
The Clapper!!!

HELP! I've fallen and I can't get up!

Yeah, I always tell my wife that when she says, "Look, it's a lifetime supply"! Yeah, sure. The lifetime of the company, but what happens when they go bust?

You didn't break them trying to cut through an aluminum can like the commercial did you? C'mon...fess up now!

Mr. Microphone?
ZZ may be an idiot but at least he knows how to unclog a sink!

Thank you Stewart.
Do you remember Mr. Steak?
Posted by D. on 2010-06-07:
J4A....you may be able to cut through cans, saw screwdrivers, cut through brinks and still slice a tomato paper thin...but you CAN'T cut cheese with them! Yes...BOTH were broken when I tried to cut Mozzarella cheese one day and Swiss cheese another day. I guess when it comes to cutting cheese, nothing can beat Ejack!

Lakisha, No I never knew Mr. Steak. Is he a friend of yours?

It was a family steakhouse. Nothing special.

I tried that Mighty Putty once. That was krap too!! I used it to hang a 8in X 8in dry erase board calender on my fridge and it fell off that night at 2 am waking me up and scaring the sh&*t out of me. The erase board couldn't have weighed more than 3 lbs....what a joke!! The commercial showed them pulling a semi with it lol.

I think I remember that one!
Sorry that you had to soil your jammies because of that krap.

You could go to Home Depot or Lowe's (or a hardware store) and buy a REAL drain snake, made of metal and much longer, for less than what the Turbo Snake sells for.
