Infusion Brands Receives Innovation Award for New Cooking System

Ronco Ready Grill Receives Third Place Award in Housewares Executive's Annual Innovation Issue

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2014) - Infusion Brands, Inc., a leading consumer product marketing company, operating under the public company As Seen On TV, Inc. (OTCQB: ASTV), today announced that Ronco, the brand known for high quality consumer products dedicated to healthy living, received the Bronze Innovation Award in Housewares Executive's Annual Innovation Awards issue. The honor was given for Ronco's newest product, a one-of-its-kind indoor cooking system -- the Ready Grill -- that prepares healthy, delicious food with a great grilled flavor in less than 15 minutes.

The Ronco Ready Grill features a vertically suspended grill basket and infrared technology to cook food quicker than a traditional oven. With the Ready Grill, clean-up is easy, saving time in the kitchen so families can spend more time together. It even accommodates frozen food without the hassle and time spent defrosting. With the Ready Grill, full meals can be prepped, cooked and on the table in a matter of minutes. Just set the timer, and when it dings, dinner's done. The Ready Grill's patented external drip tray also removes grease and fat, making it a healthier way to cook for you and your family.

This year's Innovation Awards recognized groundbreaking products new to market in 2014. Ronco was recognized in the Indoor Grills category alongside Spectrum Brands, the marketer behind the best-selling George Foreman Grill.

"We're honored to have been selected as a recipient of this year's Innovation Awards by Housewares Executive," said Bob DeCecco, Chairman and CEO of As Seen On TV and Infusion Brands. "To be recognized by such a well-respected publication in the housewares industry is truly a testament to Ronco's innovation leadership in the marketplace."

The infomercial for Ronco's award-winning Ready Grill will begin later this month, followed by a nationwide retail roll out later this fall. This will be the first new infomercial launched for Ronco in more than a decade. For more information, visit
