    MINNEAPOLIS, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- You can now have the flavor of a fine
 restaurant's fare in your home.  The American Gourmet Secret (AGS) Countertop
 Tumbler brings to your kitchen professional technology previously found in
 meat markets and restaurants to marinate and tenderize meat.

     The vacuum and tumbling action marinates and helps tenderize the meat,
 allowing the marinade to penetrate thoroughly and evenly.  In only 20 minutes,
 you are ready to put pork chops, steak or chicken breasts on the grill (see ).
     "If you enjoy game meat and have found it tricky or time consuming to
 prepare, the Countertop Tumbler is perfect for you," says Tom Duffy, CEO of
 American Gourmet Secret.
     The Countertop Tumbler is also Atkins and South Beach friendly for those
 on a low-carb diet.
     "You don't need much marinade, and with all of the wonderful expensive
 gourmet offerings on the shelves these days, that is a huge selling point to
 me," reports Ann Noble, a manager at Kowalski's markets in Minneapolis.
     This user-friendly process prepares meats for grilling, baking in the oven
 or on the stovetop. Its dishwasher-safe cylinder holds up to four pounds of
 meat.  The "bonus basket" is an effective way to wash pesticides and dirt from
 produce.  A simple, natural combination of vinegar and water together with the
 Tumbler eliminates harmful bacteria.
     Additional uses for the Tumbler include tossing salads, pasta, party mix
 or anything else you cook up.
     The Countertop Tumbler retails for $99.99 and is available at Mills Fleet
 Farm, select Gander Mountain stores, Blain's Farm and Fleet, Western Big R,
 Linton's Big R and direct from the company at 800-480-4567 or .  In addition to the Tumbler, marinades, a recipe
 book and user's manual are included.
