* The Pasta Pro, a big pasta pot with a lid that doubles as a colander, proudly advertises that the lid locks on tight so you won't scald yourself when the lid falls off. Sounds like a great idea -- one less dish to wash -- but some reviewers have reported that the lid isn't "locking on" so much as it's ''warping''. It sticks so badly that it won't come off when the pot is hot. Of course, attempting to pry the lid off carries a very high risk of burns. Other manufacturers have [[FollowTheLeader improved upon]] the idea with better results.

** This also incorporates a bit of TheCoconutEffect. Some Japanese-made motorcycles are faster and/or more powerful than American-made ones, but because they don't roar as loud or vibrate as much, they're seen as inferior (when the opposite is true, see above).

** Another interpretation is they never say ''how much'' you'll be winning. You could lose a thousand dollars on the slots...and then hit a minor jackpot and win...a thousand dollars. That's still winning, but in reality, you've broke even, you're right back where you started.

* For cheap pocket and[=/=]or utility knives, it's not uncommon to see "surgical steel" used as a selling point. Obviously, the intended takeaway is that the knife is great because it's made from the same type of steel as a surgeon's scalpel, but savvy buyers know to steer clear of these knives because modern scalpels are designed to be single-use and disposable, and thus are made from very inexpensive, brittle steel.

Obviously, the intended takeaway is that the knife is great because it's made from the same type of steel as a surgeon's scalpel, but savvy buyers know to steer clear of these knives because a scalpel is strictly used for the low-torque job of cutting soft tissue, and most modern scalpels scalpel blades are designed to be single-use and disposable, and thus are made from disposable. As such, they use very inexpensive, brittle steel.steel; not the sort you'd want any practical utility knife to be made from.

* Natural fiber yarns are dyed in "lots". Knitters have to be careful that all the yarn they buy for a specific project is from the same dye lot or there could be a noticeable difference in colour after washing. Manufacturers of cheap scratchy acrylic yarn are now advertising that their product is superior because it has no inconvenient dye lots. That's because acrylic isn't dyed per se: the manufacturers simply add the dye to the petrochemical goo they make the yarn from.
** In some cases, no-dye-lot yarn is still dyed in lots: the manufacturer just [[TheyJustDidntCare doesn't bother to keep track of them]]. Hope you like your blue sweater with one green sleeve.

* Commercials for the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP Go]] touted "download-only" as a selling point. What this means is that the PSP Go lacks a UMD drive: if you "upgrade" to a Go, then your entire existing PSP library is useless, apart from whatever games you've already bought for download. In addition to forcing you to buy games twice, the vast majority of PSP titles never became available as downloads[[note]]Which doesn't mean they're unattainable for those willing to install some unauthorized firmware[[/note]].
