Ronco Holdings, Inc., the maker of high-quality consumer housewares, today announced the successful product debut of its newest innovation -- the Ronco Ready Grill. The Ready Grill, a vertically-inclined indoor grill that prepares food more evenly and quicker than a traditional oven, sold out in under 45 minutes on the major live shopping network HSN this Monday, June 23.
In its two airings, the Ready Grill nearly doubled the original sell through expectations established by the network. "This is the first new cooking system since the microwave," said Bob DeCecco, Chairman and CEO of As Seen On TV and Infusion Brands. "We're very happy with the Ready Grill's successful debut on HSN. This is just one of the many new innovative products in development that will reestablish the Ronco brand as a leader in the housewares category." Known for classic direct response hits like the Showtime Rotisserie and Pocket Fisherman, the Ready Grill is the first new innovation Ronco has seen in nearly 20 years.
Ronco, the newest addition to the Infusion Brands umbrella, which is publicly traded as (OTCQB: ASTV), developed this cooking system to appeal to its on-the-go customers in need of healthy delicious food made easy. "We are all busy," said Ronco's Brand Ambassador and pitchman Marc Gill. "The Ready Grill's infrared technology allows you to put a meal for four on your table in less than 20 minutes. It's so easy to use, there's no reason anymore to eat unhealthy."
The Ready Grill is the newest device in cooking innovation, designed for households everywhere. Its infrared technology and vertically suspended grill basket prepares restaurant-quality meals in minutes, inside the comfort of home. The Ready Grill accommodates something for everyone - even frozen food without the hassle and time spent defrosting. Its patented extended drip tray also removes grease and fat by the power of gravity, making it a healthier way to cook for you and your family.
The HSN debut of the Ready Grill will be followed by the launch of the television infomercial and wide retail rollout in the fall. For more information, visit www.readygrill.com
