Has anyone tried the upside down tomato plant hanger

I see the upside down tomato plant hanger advertise a lot on the infomercials, and I was thinking how neat. I want to try it, but I know a lot of things advertise on TV are a waste of money. I was wondering if anyone has tried this, are there any other alternatives.

The idea of hanging tomatoes is a great idea and should work for a lot of things. I am trying to create my own upside down planter. I am using the wire frames from the stands we put around the tomatoes and flowers to keep them standing up when they get to tall. The only thing I can see being a problem is getting them to retain enough water that I only have to water them once a day. I think Perlite with do the trick there. Once I have that working I will try it with strawberries as well.

I"m skeptical as to how big the fruit & plants get. And like you the cost being a waste. There are alternative home made versions you could try, just do a search and see if you can do a homemade one before you invest in a topsey turby.
