Spiffy Spinner from Allstar Products Group says it’s a battery powered handheld duster that attracts dust like a magnet and can get to hard-to-reach areas around the house. They claim this is because Spiffy Spinner has a telescoping handle, a rotating and pivoting head made of a washable electrostatic fiber cloth.
How Spiffy Spinner Works
Spiffy Spinner uses 4 AAA batteries to power its rotating head, which they claim spins at 400 RPMs. They add that Spiffy Spinner has a telescoping handle but they don’t give the actual dimensions and customer service had no info either.
To use Spiffy Spinner, they instruct you to turn it on and let it spin; then place against dusty objects like ceiling fans or television sets. They tout Spiffy Spinner’s electrostatic fiber will attract the dust in a jiffy, leaving the surface clean. They add Spiffy Spinner won’t damage delicate items and you can extend and bend it to get corners, crevices, and high spots. When you’re done, they state you can wash the cloth under the sink so it’s ready for the next use.
Spiffy Spinner Cost:
$32.85, which is sold as $19.95 plus $7.95 S&H for the first Spiffy Spinner and another $4.95 in handling for the second.
Spiffy Spinner comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, minus any shipping fees and what it costs you to send back.
Bottom Line: Is Spiffy Spinner a Spiffy Idea?
We couldn’t find any customer reviews of Spiffy Spinner, but we do know a little about Allstar Products Group. They are the company behind the meg-popular Snuggie as well as dozens of other As Seen On TV products perhaps less familiar to you.
Allstar Products Group as of May 2015 has an A- rating from the BBB. The BBB says their rating was raised by the fact that they’ve been in business since 1999 and the number of complaints is relative to its size. However, it should be noted that over 200 complaints in the last year were regarding problems with a product or service (which the company did resolve).
Indeed, while people may love their Snuggie, products like Catch Caddy and Secret Extensions get very low ratings on our website from consumers who say they are cheaply made products and don’t work as promised.
There have also been a number of complaints about some of the selling tactics the company uses. In March 2015, Allstar Products Group agreed to a fine of almost $8 million dollars for having confusing “buy one get one” online offers or automated telephone ordering. The company promised to be more clear with its shipping and handling fees before a sale is final.
But we have a better idea. If you are interested in Spiffy Spinner we suggest waiting until it is available at your local retailer (Target, Walgreens, etc.) that have a special As Seen On TV aisle. This way you can avoid long shipping times, confusing sales pitches, and if it isn’t any good you can easily return it.
