The advertised Ronco Gift Center looks very much like a current shelf section at the local Walmart. And the Gift Center looks like it was thirty years ago!

I admit that some of the items Ronco marketed were good ideas, but the execution was less than good due to the mass production methods used to get the ideas to market. Cheap plastic and flimsy metal were guaranteed to break after a few uses.
