Ronco's Newest Cooking System Exceeds Sales Goals

New Ronco Ready Grill Achieves Sellout Status Again on HSN

As Seen On TV, Inc. (OTCQB: ASTV) Ronco Holdings, Inc., the maker of high-quality consumer housewares, today announced another sellout of its newest innovation -- the Ronco Ready Grill. A one-of-its-kind indoor cooking system that prepares healthy, delicious food with a great grilled flavor in less than 15 minutes, the Ready Grill sold out in under 20 minutes during its second airing on the leading entertainment and lifestyle retailer HSN Saturday, August 9.

 

The Ready Grill made its debut on HSN this June, nearly doubling the original sell-through expectations established by the network. The August 9 airing once again outperformed sales goals -- exceeding plan by 156%.

 

"These successful airings on HSN just scratch the surface of the Ready Grill's potential," said Bob DeCecco, Chairman and CEO of As Seen On TV and Infusion Brands. "The Ready Grill is not only Ronco's first innovation in nearly 15 years, but it is one of the first cooking innovations in the kitchen to solve the problem of time and convenience since the microwave. The Ready Grill has the power to change the way we cook in our homes, making healthy, delicious, and easy to prepare meals attainable every night of the week."

 

The Ready Grill was recently awarded an Innovation Award (http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/infusion-brands-receives-innovation-award-for-new-cooking-system-otcqb-astv-1938358.htm) by industry publication Housewares Executive for its novelty in the Indoor Grills category. 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 is prepared without the hassle and time spent defrosting. Its patented external drip tray removes grease and fat by the power of gravity, making it a healthier way to cook for today's busy families.

 

Along with more scheduled HSN airings leading up to the holidays, Ronco -- the newest addition to the Infusion Brands umbrella (publicly traded as OTCQB: ASTV) -- will release a 30-minute infomercial for the Ronco Ready Grill later this month, followed by a nationwide retail roll out this fall.
