Save your money. It is a very limited device that does not do what it claims to do (it will not reduce your thighs) and you can get the exact same strengthening from squats, lunges, and other strength moves *without* equipment. You're wasting money and space on a marketing gimmick. ;)
You cannot reduce fat from parts of your body you don't like. This is because your muscles draw their energy from the bloodstream, not the surrounding fat stores. Fat loss is a total body process!

Rainbowcharmer said it best: you won't see results from only the thigh master.
But, I don't think it's a gimmick. It does use muscle to work properly. Just like a free weight.
It's marketed as a miracle product, which it is not.

Most of those fitness gimmicks are not effective.
Sure the thigh master will strengthen a very small area of your legs, if you use it regularly. But you're not going to reduce inches that way. The way you reduce inches is over-all weight training and cardio mixed with proper nutrition.
You're going to burn very few calories using a thigh master or an ab roller or any of those other fitness gimmicks out there. If you like it, by all means use it too, but if that's your sole exercise routine, you're not going to see results.

I've had one for like 5 years (butt master, too, which I like a lot better). Anyway, my favorite way to use the thigh master is putting it up against the side of my rib cage and using my tricep/arm to push down. It's hard! My triceps are sore today from that little thigh master!!

It will not spot reduce fat from the thighs.

I bought one a few years ago. I don't recommend it. You have to be careful with it or it can pop up and knock someone/something out. You'd be better off with leg lifts, squats and lunges etc. Just my 2 cents...
