The late ’90s were a time of wonder, caller ID was replacing *69, the internet was coming to the mainstream, and infomercials were both entertaining and valuable. My favorite of all time was Ron Popeil who had many inventions. The 5 tray food dehydrator, the pocket fisherman, the dial-o-matic. By far the most memorable of them all was the infamous Ron Popeil Rotisserie oven.
For a half-hour straight Ron would put meat on the Rotisserie prongs, close the door and say to the crowd and people at home “You Just Set It” and we would all scream “AND FORGET IT”. Rib Roasts, Chickens, up to an 18lb turkey, leg of lamb, cornish hens, hot dogs, ANYTHING you can imagine, it was interactive, fun and entertaining.
