CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2014) - Ronco, a division of Infusion Brands (OTCQB: ASTV), announces the media launch of its newest innovation -- the Ronco Ready Grill. A one-of-a kind indoor grilling system that prepares healthy, delicious food with a great grilled flavor quickly and easily, the Ready Grill is the first new kitchen appliance innovation from Ronco since the infamous Showtime Rotisserie in 1998, which sold over 7 million units on television. The Ready Grill's 30-minute infomercial hits networks nationwide today, hosted by Ronco's Brand Ambassador Marc Gill.
"I couldn't be more excited to represent Ronco in its first new infomercial in more than 10 years," said Marc Gill. "It's because of the original Ronco rotisserie oven in the 1980s that I actually chose to become a TV product spokesperson. The Ronco Ready Grill makes healthy, delicious meals attainable for today's busy families."
The Ready Grill's infrared technology and vertically suspended grill basket prepares restaurant-quality meals in minutes, on your kitchen counter. It accommodates something for everyone; even frozen food can be prepared without the hassle and time spent defrosting.
Since its debut on the leading entertainment and lifestyle retailer HSN this June, nearly doubling original sell-through expectations, the Ready Grill continues to receive rave reviews. Housewares Executive recently recognized the Ready Grill with an Innovation Award in the Indoor Grills category. In August, the Ready Grill once again outperformed sales goals on HSN, reaching sellout status in just 18 minutes.
"The Ready Grill is the first of many new innovative products in development that will reestablish the Ronco brand as a leader in the home goods category," said Bob DeCecco, Chairman and CEO of Infusion Brands, Inc. "This infomercial marks the beginning of our growth strategy to build brands by innovating and leveraging direct response television, driving sales on an international platform."
Along with the release of the infomercial, the product will roll out into retail nationwide in late September, coupled with more scheduled HSN airings leading up to the holidays.
