The Ronco Ready Grill is a counter-top way to barbeque safely and effectively indoors. Designed to fit in any kitchen, it takes up a mere 16 inches of precious counter space and requires no preheating unlike an oven. As it requires no preheating it will not cause your home to overheat in those hot summer months where an oven can turn your home into a sauna. With the infrared design it also uses 80% less energy than an oven. This product is suitable for a variety of foods and comes with a cookbook that includes over 250 recipes to get those creative juices flowing.

The Claim

For grilled food cooked indoors, the Ronco Ready Grill is a solution to creating the barbeque grilled taste and texture without an open flame which also eliminates smoking and flare ups. Able to cook meat, vegetables or anything else you would usually grill, in a fraction of the time, this product is able to handle it all. Its vertical design allows the fat to drip off of the food and into the drip tray to create a healthy alternative to deep fried and oil covered foods. Cleanup is also easy with this product as the basket and included drip tray is dishwasher safe.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Ronco Ready Grill is $99.99 plus $9.99 shipping, for a total price of $109.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Ronco Ready Grill being discontinued. Ronco Ready Grill may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.


  • Compact Design

    The Ronco Ready Grill is a mere 16 inches which makes it suitable for every kitchen from a large manor to a trendy tiny house. This design feature also ensures there is little to no wasted energy saving on heat and electricity without sacrificing taste or quality.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    While other grills require scrubbing, particularly if they are not cleaned immediately, this product is dishwasher safe saving time and energy.

    As it does not need to be cleaned immediately after use it also prevents burns which are possible on other models.

  • Cooks Fresh or Frozen Meats

    The state of your meat does not matter to the Ronco Ready Grill as it utilizes infrared heat reflectors which cook the food from the inside out. This allows the inside to be cooked to perfection while the outside is seared to prevent moisture loss.

  • Fat Drip Tray

    As the food is cooked vertically, the fat will run off the food and into the drip tray. This allows for healthier meals without the sacrifice of flavor or texture. Even steaks and sausages can be cooked to a lean perfection, allowing those on a diet more freedom in what they eat.

  • Large Surface Area

    By utilizing a vertical design, you can have meats and vegetables cooking at the same time without cross contamination. Placing the meat on one size and the vegetables on the other allows each to cook without dripping on the other. This is ideal for one pan barbequed steak and potatoes while its large size allows you to cook for the whole family at once.


  • Set Width

    Unfortunately as it does have a set width, the Ronco Ready Grill is unable to cook large objects such as whole chickens or roasts. While these objects are too large as a whole to be cooked on the grill, it is possible to break them down into appropriately sized pieces and then cook to perfection.

  • Basket Design

    The basket design which holds the food while it is cooking and is great with large objects such as steaks, hot dogs and even potatoes. Where it falls short is for small objects such as onions and raw homemade hamburgers. The solution to the hamburgers is to start with a frozen patty, even if it is homemade. By starting with a frozen patty, it is less likely to crumble and by the time it is thawed enough to start crumbling, the outside has been seared to hold the whole thing together.


  • Mixing Foods

    When cooking mixed raw foods such as chicken and vegetables, it is very important that the raw meat does not come into contact with the vegetables even in the cooking device. To prevent this, ensure that the vegetables are securely trapped above the protein or on the other side.

  • Chicken on the Bone

    It is very important that when you are cooking meat on the bone, particularly chicken, that you take caution in ensuring that the meat is cooked thoroughly. Undercooked meat, particularly poultry and pork, harbors the potential for salmonella poisoning and other contamination.
