BBQ Grill Mat Review 0

The grill is a great tool, and in many houses is the only cooking instrument a man is allowed to touch. Here at As Seen On TV Hot 10, we grill all of the time. Steaks, ribs, chicken, and fish; the grill pretty much has meat covered. But what about when you want to make pulled pork and then give it an extra char? It'll fall right though. What about when you want to grill a quick vegetable medley? You better have skewers, or else there will be a pile of blackened squash, carrots, and zucchini at the bottom of your grill.

Many people say that you can wrap these items in foil, but that will keep out of lot of that great grill flavor from the ambient air, as well as keep all of the moisture inside of that foil pocket. Moisture can be a good thing, as nobody likes dry food. However, vegetables can become soggy and fall apart inside a foil pocket.

As Seen On TV BBQ Grill Mat

The grill mat is the perfect solution to this problem. The grill mat has been used in commercial kitchens for years, and consumers didn't even know about them. That is, until a commercial showed consumers what they'd been missing. Our BBQ Grill Mat is extremely tough, and opens up a world of possibilities that you might not have considered. Here are a few of the things that the BBQ Grill Mat makes easier:

  • Tender Fish
  • Burgers
  • Bacon
  • Cheese
  • Tofu
  • Vegetables

Our BBQ Grill Mat can handle pretty high temperatures (500 degrees), can be washed in the dishwasher or the sink, has a non-stick coating, and includes 2 grill mats incase you want to double up on your non-conventional grilling power!

It can also be used in the oven as an alternative to aluminium foil and wax paper, or instead of a cookie sheet. Did I mention that this product is reversible? If you want to see it in action, check out this video!

Bell + Howell Tac Light Lantern Review 0

New product from Emson TV Products is the Bell + Howell Tac Light Lantern! This tactical lantern is the perfect spring item for the outdoors man & woman. It comes from the makers of the Bell + Howell Tactical Flashlight that saw huge success during the previous 4th qtr. 

Bell + Howell Taclight Lantern

The best couple things I can say about this tactical lantern is it's very bright and lasts for up to 100,000 hours.  Just like its cousin, the Bell + Howell Tactical Flashlight, it's extremely tough! Fire proof, you can freeze it and it's water proof. It's perfect for working on your car, power outages, camping or fishing at night. It's also super light weight and very easy to maneuver. Imagine having this Tactical Lantern on your next outdoor trip and it weighs less than a pound!

The only thing negative to report about the Bell + Howell Tactical Lantern is we have not been able to find the lumen output on it. But take my word for it, it's twice as bright as any lantern out there.

All in all we give the Taclight Lantern the go for any fishing, camping and out door adventures!

Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner Review and Apps 0

Read your car like a book.

You're driving down the street, and your check engine light comes on. Instantly your mind starts to race. "Did I change the oil, maybe that's the problem? Is it the transmission? Oh man that'll be expensive..." So you drive down to the dealership, have them look at your car, and pay them $80 to make the light go off, if you're lucky! But what happened when they took the car? Well they probably hooked it up to an OBD-II scanner, saw the code was tripped because of a $5 sensor going bad, replace it in under a minute, and then wait around for a few minutes so that it seems like more work had to be done and charge you for an hours work. There's probably a better way to go about fixing this problem. The Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner.

OBD2 Codes

OBD2 Codes, or OBD-II codes are codes that your vehicle sends out if there is an error. OBD2 scanners can read these codes through the OBD2 port in your car. Usually, these scanners are pretty expensive - in the multiple hundred dollar range. Recently here at As Seen On TV Hot 10 we found a better way to do this, the Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner. It can connect to your phone and read and even reset error codes, and provide diagnostic information on your car.

To put the code reader in your car you need to find your OBD2 port which you can do at this website. OBD2 ports are on almost all vehicles made after 1996, and several before that year.

OBD2 Codes are 5 digits long, and the breakdown is usually as follows:

  1. The first letter is the system the error code is affecting. P = Powertrain | B = Body | C = Chassis | U = Undefined
  2. The second number is the code type. 0 = Generic 1 = Manufacturer Specific
  3. The third number is the sub system that is being affected. 1 = Emission Management (Fuel or Air) 2 = Injector Circuit (Fuel or Air) 3 = Ignition or Misfire 4 = Emission Control 5 = Vehicle Speed & Idle Control 6 = Computer & Output Circuit 7 = Transmission 8 = Transmission 9 = SAE Reserved 0 = SAE Reserved
  4. The fourth and fifth codes define the specific problem and usually have to be looked up online. You can look up any codes from your car at this site. Our code reader know how to interpret many types of codes, but some manufacturer specific codes need to be looked up.Read more at:

ELM327: The Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner

The ELM327 Bluetooth OBD2 code reader is truly awesome. The price of all technology decreases over time, but the jump from $200+ for a bulky handheld OBD2 scanner that connects to your car with a thick cable to a small Bluetooth model that connects to your phone for just over $10 is just crazy.

I was reading reviews of this product while I was sourcing it for our store, and I noticed a lot of reviews were 5 stars, and a few of them said that the product didn't work. I found that the reason for this is that several different factories make these items and some wholesale for just $1. This means that some factories cut corners and ship lower quality items, while others focus on build quality. At As Seen On TV Hot 10, we don't like items that break or don't work. We have one of the best refund policies compared to our competition, if even %5 of our items were defective we'd lose money. So we ordered from a high quality factory and tested them all out and can proudly say these are some of the best code readers on the market. Get yours for $10.95 at!

To start using this bluetooth code reader after you plug it in, you'll need to connect the device to your phone like you would a headset or any other bluetooth device. The instructions come with the product as well. Then, you'll need to pick an app to interface with the code reader. I'll go over a few of the options below, starting with my favorite: Torque, the app the comes with the scanner.

Torque Pro App Review

Torque Pro running on an Android Phone for use with OBD2 Bluetooth Code ReaderTorque Pro is what ships with the ELM327 Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner. It's normally $4.95, but it's free with your purchase from us. Torque Pro is a diagnostics tool and vehicle tracking suite. You can look over the full feature list on the Google Play Store Listing or the Torque Pro Wiki. There is a pretty cool video that shows a bit of it's features in action.


Here is a list of my favorite features:

  • Tracking your car on the map and being able to see the speed, fuel economy, or virtually any other metric at any point on the map.
  • Reading Error Codes (it has 3k definitions built in, so you'll know right what you're looking at)
  • Clearing Error Codes!!! I can think of several times that my car sent the wrong signal and turned the engine light on. If I didn't know how to reset the codes I would have had to pay to get the car checked only to have it be as simple as pressing a button to get rid of the error.
  • Dashboards. You can make a dashboard with all of the information you want to track on one screen. MPH, Fuel Range, RPM, Engine Temperature, and a whole lot more!
  • Plugins. There is an entire page of plugins that you can use with Torque made by other developers. This is great because the more community an app has the more likely it is to continue being supported, updated, and improved.

DashCommand OBD App Review

DashCommand works a lot like Torque Pro, but you'll have to buy this one separately if you find after their free trial that you like it better. I really like the design of DashCommand, it's very clean and easy to read while still being reminiscent of all of the classic car gauges and meters. I recommend you go check out DashCommand after you get comfortable with Torque Pro, although there aren't very many extra features the user interface is much more polished. This is really just a matter of choice.

OBD Car Doctor Review

OBD Car Doctor was the only app on my list I couldn't get to work. Which is fine because I didn't find the design that appealing, and the feature list wasn't as robust as the other two apps. In my opinion, you can steer clear of this one.

This is only a list of a few of the apps that you can get for our Bluetooth Code Reader, there are several more in the appstores for Android and iPhone.

Hand Carved Slingshot Review 0

The slingshot has a long history, rich history. It's been used for hunting and self-protection for many years, since the times of the stone age when a leather strap and a rock was used as a sling. The sling is arguably one of the most famous weapons, as depicted in the story of David and Goliath. The sling in this story was enough to kill a grown man, and as you can imagine it's older brother, the slingshot, is even more powerful. This is why, even though the slingshot is considered a toy, it is important to realize that this object is first and foremost a weapon. You need to check with your local laws and make sure that slingshots are legal, and where you are allowed to carry them. In this article we're going to look at why you'd want a slingshot, how to be safe with the slingshot, and take a look at our hand carved wooden slingshot that we offer in our store here at As Seen On TV Hot 10.

Benefits and Uses of Slingshot Training

Training with a Slingshot can be incredibly fun, but it can also make some incredible adaptations in the body. As you practice, your hand eye coordination can be drastically improved, wrist strength, hand and body stability, as well as breath control all see benefits. These adaptations can be further compounded by practicing with both hands. So as well as being a relaxing pastime, it is a light form of exercise and sharpens up several mental faculties.

The same goes for children, who are more ready to learn and grow than adults. The cool thing about slingshots is there there are two schools of thought when it comes to practice, there is skillful and natural aiming. Skillful aiming is attempting to apply techniques, stances, and draw methods to your shooting. This can be interesting for people who compete in the sport to try new things, but the other method is just as valid. The instinctive method of shooting is just going out there and shooting. If you pay close attention while shooting, you can find what works and doesn't work though trial and error. You can mess with how you stand, how you draw, where you hold it, and the more you experiment and find what works the more effortless shooting will be.

Improving your Slingshot Training

Going with this natural method of shooting, you can further increase the challenges on yourself by setting up a simple course. You can set up a series of targets evenly spaced out, and put X's on the ground to stand on at different distances from the targets. You can time yourself and record the points you get on each target, and then keep a log and try to improve your accuracy or speed each week. You can then make rules for each target, like squat down on the second target, lay down on the ground on the fourth or the first. There's nothing like getting exercise while practicing marksmanship. There is a calm, zen like state that can happen while shooting where you aren't thinking of anything but the target and where your body is, and you live perfectly in the moment until you hit that target. This is very close to a form of meditation called mindfulness.

Slingshot Safety

There are certain safety measures you should take with Slingshots, as they can be moderately dangerous to downright deadly depending on the model. Our Hand Carved Wooden Slingshot is a starter model for kids or people who want a reliable starter slingshot for a good price. When you get up to the heavier modelers or the super strong wrist rockets you want to make safety even more of a concern. Most importantly, if you buy a slingshot for your child, make sure that the following rules are posted and shouldn't ever be skipped or ignored. This sets up a foundation for general weapon safety and responsibility.

  • Wear Safety glasses. You don't want a wood or metal ball bearing in your eye.
  • Shoot Outside. There is less of a chance of getting a recoil shot that bounces around a room until it hits you.
  • If possible, wear a hoodie or some other sort of thick article of clothing. You want similar protection to what you'd wear going paintballing.

Hand Carved Wooden Animal Slingshot Review

Our Wooden Slingshots are hand carved and painted with extremely cool animal designs, and feature a faux leather strap connected by a strong surgical latex rubber tube, doubled back and tied through itself with 1/4in. of overlap to make sure there isn't any slipping.

We carry over 10 different styles: Alligator, Black Bear, Buck, Buffalo, Eagle, Giraffe, Long Horn, Rattlesnake, Tiger, Wolf. To see them visit our shop page!

All Slingshots are $8.95, and our bags of slingshot ammo are $2.99/40 rounds. All items on our store come with a "no-worries" money back guarantee. Feel free to visit our store, or order over the phone by calling (850) 234-3000!

Eggtastic Review | Scrambled Egg Recipe 0


Breakfast can be hard to make. Not because of the difficulty of breakfast food, but because of finding the time. In college, I would sleep until the last possible moment before jumping up for a shower and then driving to school or work. Now, with kids, things haven't changed much. But my to-do list has become much longer, and my last possible moment is two hours before everyone has to be out of the door. When I found a product in the store that promised to save massive amounts of time in the morning and make eggs that are better than I could make on my own, I knew I wanted to try it. However, I'm an extremely picky eater - and I'm highly distrustful of something good coming out of the microwave.

Eggtastic! Scrambled Eggs, Egg Sandwiches, and Poached Eggs in minutes! Ceramic Microwave Egg Cooker

Eggtastic Review

The As Seen On TV Eggtastic delivers everything it says and more. The Eggtastic is a ceramic microwave egg cooker. The commercials promise that you can make poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and more. Here is the original commercial.

The first thing I tried to make was scrambled eggs. I simply followed the directions inside the box and found the cook time on the chart that was included with the Eggtastic. They came out great, and as I was eating I saw my fiancée eyeing this contraption. I went to work to start on the blog post for this cooking device, already thinking it was awesome, when she called me. I was asked where the instructions were for poached eggs like they made in the commercial. I realized that there wasn't any, and then after searching online I still couldn't find any information. Other eggtastic reviews simply made the eggs like I did and stopped. When I got home she had made turkish poached eggs, loaded scrambled eggs, and even egg custard in the eggtastic! I was blown away by how versatile this product was, and how good the things that came out of it tasted! Best of all these things were extremely easy. So now we are going to release our own recipes for the eggtastic, so that you can get the most out of this product and speed up your mornings while getting a better breakfast! Check out our video review with the recipe, and subscribe to our youtube channel or this blog for more eggtastic recipes coming soon!
