The Ronco Record Vacuum

Ronco Record Vacuum

The original 1976 Ronco Record Vacuum!  Manufactured for Ronco Teleproducts by Southbury Manufacturing of South Britain, Connecticut, the Ronco Record Vacuum is an ingenious battery-operated device that  seems like such a ridiculous novelty that you'd think it couldn't possibly work, and...well, the jury's still out. The Ronco Record Vacuum automatically spins your vinyl through foam rubber cleaning brushes and hidden anti-static foil sheets. During this process, a "powerful" vacuum cleaner sucks away the loose dust particles and blasts them out of a small exhaust vent.

When in good, clean condition, it actually performs this task. When the foam is deteriorated or excessive debris is in the casing, the Ronco Record Vacuum could potentially do more harm than good, so inspect it before attempting to clean your prized albums. It is powered by four "D" batteries. (not included!). Scroll down for our video of the Ronco Record Vacuum in action, as well as some original 1970's television commercials...

Here are a couple of 1970's TV commercials for the Ronco Record Vacuum, along with our own video of a Ronco Record Vacuum in action...

To quote the legend Ron Popeil himself, "But wait, there's more!"

Here's some sales copy from a Ronco print ad:  "The new stereo accessory that protects all your records! Simply insert your record into the Record Vacuum, turn it on and your record rotates automatically sweeping and vacuuming your records instantly - loosening deep damaging microdust particles which distort sound and damage your needle. Helps eliminate static electricity build up. Works on 33 1/3, 45's, and 78's. The new automatic record cleaner that protects and preserves your records".

Here's what our Ronco Record Vacuum ACTUALLY sounded and looked like while operating:
