Some people have all the money in the world but it doesn't mean they know how to spend that tonight.
We're breaking down the most ridiculously.
Overpriced and underperforming products on the market today with MarketWatch columnist Charles passing.
Charles welcome back to the show it's always great to have you here.
When I'm outraged over Chanel number five for 4200 -- what -- -- talking 4200 well well model of.
Her female it's a very large -- -- now.
You know Chanel make their product in many sizes and in many packaging and this is their largest version it's called the grand extract.
You know the joke about this one is that it's really more for showing been using because.
You don't want a large bottle of perfume perfume weekend's overtime so once you open that bottle.
It's not going to be as good a year from now and really what I was told is that the woman has a particularly.
Favorite frequent shall -- go through about an ounce of it in the year so so this is several ounces -- that not a very good I thirty ounces the right there.
But it does look very good on the mantle until quarter ounce for 120 -- writing down what -- write it.
It just like everybody doesn't know Chanel number five right I mean there are some people that -- to a very old fashion fragrance that may not be the best thing to give.
It to somebody who's younger but again this is a show piece.
Are right now and disappoint me severely by saying that you would buy.
The -- how much is that 2000.
Dollar -- -- couldn't grow be worth twenty well I mean I would buy it if I had the money and money was no object I'll looks not especially not with.
The kid his grill as they have perfected something that nobody is really perfected before which is that the hybrid gas and charcoal grill.
A lot of the hybrid models that have come out have been.
Gas grill and -- charcoal grill side by side this actually sort of would kind of puts the two together.
You can grow just -- -- death you can -- with charcoal.
You can sort of use both in tandem.
It is a huge huge cooking surface more than a thousand square inches how many hamburgers -- I get -- well I I think at least a couple of -- and I'm gonna say felt.
On the -- the truth of the matter is is that even the company that makes -- the executives can be admitted to me that.
You could do very well with just a good ol' fashioned Weber grill this makes the -- -- a little more easy a little more fun.
But a lot more expense I was gonna say the liberals such a back like what thirty bucks if you just want us much good -- the -- but had little good wherever you're looking at a hundred to 500 somewhere in that range and -- we have the Huntington liquid propane gas throw for 369 right that was very highly recommended we'll be -- that's why you like I like that yes yes okay.
Men have -- issues that I now I know we have one more other element here and it did.
-- block someone coffee maker and that thing.
Pretty souped up Joba there and you but it really well you know the thing about this is I would say one of the key things about it is it gets the water super hot about a 195.
To 205 degrees.
-- in a degree you can specify the temperature -- that import well.
A behind the -- the more flavor you -- -- extract.
But here's the -- made one being -- this -- that's all yeah.
But the -- there's there's a very good Boehner beat is a brand.
That makes a coffee -- that sells for under 200 dollars same concept basically.
It can get that water up to a 195 to 205 degrees filming it going to be to can't do it within an exact degree the blossom one -- Lot would cost 111000 -- -- that choice and the absolute.
Believing -- me that some people spend this kind of money on these kinds of products and reading your column are you telling people what.
Don't do this do that.
You know generally speaking there are items that are much more about the show than the actual use and that's kind of what we will we get into in the column.
There are examples of in the grill is is an example where there is some new technology that it's offering.
But a lot of this is just kind of the -- factor I mean there's a lot of -- a lot of platinum that goes into a lot of high end products.
So it's for show yes and -- -- -- and fight for our viewers are too Smart for that Strauss thanks for coming -- absolutely great to see you.
