There is an article in today's Chicago Tribune online. Looks like Ronco is going into bankruptcy. Here is the link, but you may have to subscribe. I've added the first paragraph.http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/chi-070615ronco,0,6566063.story?coll=chi-bizfront-hedWeren't they the ones that were looking at that new roaster? Jeff Ronco Corp., maker of the Veg-O-Matic vegetable slicer and the Pocket Fisherman, filed for bankruptcy two years after founder and television pitchman Ron Popeil sold the iconic company for $56 million. Ronco, which marketed products as perfect for "grads and dads," sought protection from creditors owed more than $32.7 million. It listed $13.9 million in assets yesterday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Woodland Hills, California.

The Ronco bank rupt o matic. It slices (your debts) it dices (your creditors) it puree's (your already lowly reputation) and does it in one easy filing. Maybe they can pay off their creditors with a bunch of In the shell egg scramblers.... or was that popeil (sp) who sold them things. yah they sold crap but were kind of an icon growing up I guess you could call it... in an odd way its kind of almost sad to see them go.... .. I did say almost. Aaron
